Simply Sassy Blog Hop - Set 7

Welcome to the SIMPLY SASSY Blog Hop - showcasing Set 7 of the Steampunk Sassy Girls!! I'm so glad you've stopped.


If you have arrived here from the Simply Sassy Blog, you're on the right track, if you just happened here by chance, then start HERE and follow the trail.

As soon as Boho Chick landed on my doorstep I was desperate to ink her up!! This whole set has a more 'mature' feel than previous releases, and I like that. It makes the Sassy Girls so much more versatile.. now we can include them on even more types of cards!


I decided to make a tag using some nesties - this is my fave way to make custom tags. I used the Mega Curved Rectanges and Labels 10. I have added some faux stitching around the outside of the Naturals Ivory cardstock which I have used for my tag base using a brown fineliner.


I have coloured Boho Chick using ProMarkers and fussy cut her out. I love the blue and brown colour combo. I have used a little slice of paper from Prima - Madeline collection, as well as some packaging paper (gotta love a bit of recycling) - I love the colour and texture of it. It adds a soft stripe to the background too.


The yummy blue ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, I have used some buttons from Basic Grey and a brad from Dovecraft, as well as a blue resin flower from Lisa's Gifts and Jewellery.

♥ Blue and Brown ♥


This beautiful acrylic heart is from a set by Darcie's. I got them in amongst the blog candy I won over on Morti's blog. Gosh!! I gotta get my hands on some more of them, they're definately going to be used quickly, they're too pretty not to share. I stamped the acrylic heart with a font stamp from Waltzingmouse in Versamark ink and embossed it with brown embossing powder. It's gorgeous - the picture does it no justice at all!!

  27. I love your use of these colours & how that silky bow gives such a feminine feel to the image & enhances her slinkiness - delightful shine on her belt & the little turquoise brad adds a lovely bit of decadence to the whole. The colouring of her trousers is very effective. I love your faux stitching around the edge too.
