Sassy Studio Release Day Blog Hop!!

I hope you got here from the ever so talented Rebecca’s Blog!  If not, please start from the beginning so you don’t miss out on anything!

Oh wow!  We have a huge Release this time over at Sassy Studio Designs.  We are looking at some fun images here!  I’m talking about Hunger Games characters, Marie Antoinette, and Graduation characters!  I was assigned ‘Sexy Marie’ and any of the Graduation images I choose.  I chose to use ‘Chelseas Graduation’.  The theme this month is FLOWERS!  For any of you who visit my site regularly, you already know how much I love using flowers on my cards; so you know this was no challenge for me!  lol

We are also supposed to share what our favorite flower is…well, I use roses a lot on my cards, but my favorite live flower is the carnation.  I love the smell of the carnation and I love that they last for a long time in a jar after being picked.  I used blue and yellow carnations for my wedding flowers.

The prizes will be 3 new images for the grand prize and 1 image each for 2 other people for commenting. The grand prize winner will be chosen from the SSD comments, the other 2 from the DT blogs. You will be given until Wednesday night to enter since we have such a long hop.  We have a lot of DT folks now!

Here is my first creation – I will show you my graduation card first.  My daughter and my niece are in the 2012 graduating class.  My Niece is graduating from West Albany (in Oregon),  and my daughter is graduating from Rocky Mountain (in Idaho).  This card is for my niece who is in band and loves to sing.  Her school colors are Blue and Gold.  I included a sentiment and used DP’s from Create With TLC.  I changed the colors of the papers to make them blue (isn’t digital stamping great?).  I made the stick pin myself.  The little musical note on the upper right hand corner was a rub-on transfer.

My next creation is the Sexy Marie.  For this one; I wanted to give it more of a classic look.  I went with the black, grey and white tones.  I used colored pencils to color her.  I sponged around her using a black ink pad and a finger dauber.  The sentiment and paper are from Create With TLC – again, I changed the color of the paper to black & white.  I added a white feather, some black roses and some white rose buds, and I made the stick pin.  I used a butterfly die to cut the black butterfly.

I hope you have been inspired and love all the past and upcoming creations in this hop.  Your next stop will be the crafty Abbie’s blog!  Don’t forget to leave us all some love so that you can be entered to win some of these fabulous new images!
