80's to the Max Birthday Blog Hop

The Corrosive Challenge and Sassy Studio Designs has teamed up to have an "80's to the Max Birthday Blog Hop. SSD has provided up with the most FABULOUS 80's themed digis. You should have arrived her from Ailaine's blog. If you didn't, just click the link and get back on track. If for some reason you didn't start at the beginning, by all means do so. You don't want to miss out on any of the awesome creations that the 80's inspired. Use the list below if you didn't start at the beginning.

How did they figure out that I was, and still am a huge Smurfette fan? I loved coloring this image.




The Smurfette Sassy was printed on Curious Metallics Cryogen White Iridescent paper. She was colored with Copic and Promarkers. The background papers are from the DCWV "Birthday Wishes" stack.


My layout is from Deconstructed Sketch #111. I added sewing machine stitching around the border of the card for some added dimension. The entire time I was constructing the card, the Smurfs theme song was stuck in my head and prompted me to use the "Allegro" Cuddlebug embossing folder. I added die cuts using Spellbinders Nestabilities "Circle and Scalloped Circle." Do you recognize the Kraft cardstock border as mushrooms? After all the Smurfs do live in mushroom houses. I told you I'm a fan. They were cut with the Cricut. I dabbed Tim Holtz Distress Ink in "Vintage Photo" around the. Finally I added foam dots, bling, a bling flower and a sentiment from the "Itty Bitty" line of rubber stamps. The sentiment was added to a pennant die cut from "Die-namics." 

Your next stop on the hop should be Maria. I'm sure she has lots of 80's love to show you so be she to hop on over to her blog.
