Sassy Studio Design May Release Hop


Sassy Studio Designs has done it again! Are the new images fantastic or what? What am I talking about? First, you should have arrived her from Lori's blog...if you didn't you'll probably want to do some backtracking. If you didn't start at the beginning, and you do absolutely want to start there, click here to start at the beginning. You'll be able to get all the particulars especially how to when some or all of the new release images.

This is "Effie." With the popularity of "The Hungar Games," Lindsey modeled several designs after this popular character. I colored her with Copics and fussy cut only the torso of the image. I was going for a monochrome palette and dug through my stash and came up with these. The DP are from an old DCWV "Alphabet" stack. The card base measure 5 x 7. Once again I loosely based it on a sketch and as a result it went rather quickly. The inside mat is popped up with foam tape and the design paper was cut on the diagonal along with a solide cardstock. The stamp is from an acrylic set from "Autumn Leaves" from my favorite Dollar store. The silver doily is from Michael's in the Wilton section. I popped "Effie" up with foam tape and added the organza flower to her hat and bling on her buttons. The flowers and leaves were cut with the Cricut from the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge. The branches are from a Martha Stewart punch while the graduated bling is from my stash. I think this is the first time I've ever used an image "big head" style but it certainly won't be the last.

As a part of the hop we were asked to tell what our favorite flower is and possibly include a picture. I don't need to include a picture. Of late, I've used lots of my favorite flower on my cards. Have you figured it out yet? If not...my favorite flowers are roses. I have always loved red roses and my husband treats me to them often. In my cardmaking I love using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart because I can make roses any color I want! With that said, hop only over to Kathy's blog and she what she has created! If for some reason you don't hop in order or get lost, you can always come back here and choose from the list below.
