Simply Sassy Christmas in June Blog Hop & Release!

**I am so sorry this didn't post in time for the hop - I promise it was scheduled to go live before I went to bed last night. Blogger is really frustrating lately!!!**

Welcome to the Simply Sassy Christmas in June Blog Hop & Release!! All of the stamp are available now at Funky Kits & again you can buy all of the stamps at a special price!


I am so excited to be a part of this hop - these Sassy Christmas gals are sure to make all your cards and holiday project so festive. If you've arrived from Kathrin's blog then you are in the right place - if not, you will definitely want to make sure you start at the beginning from the Simply Sassy Blog itself. You will want to make sure you leave a comment on all DT blogs as well as the main Simply Sassy blog for your chance to win the entire set of 6 new Simply Sassy Christmas Stamps!!! 


For my card, I chose to use All Wrapped Up! She is a dream to color - so much detail in this stamp. I have been obsessed with Clean And Simple cards lately. I stared at this for a LONG time before deciding that I wasn't going to try any more....and oh my gosh, well, I guess not, I was going to say NO Designer Paper again, but I used DP for my flower. hehe I finally replenished my PTI kraft cardstock so I had to dig into that right away. I used PTI snow white to stamp the background with snowflakes and then also added a little distressing to the edges. I love it. For my image border, that is just some washi tape - isn't it fab!? I'm definitely going to be doing that some more. I love the unique look. 

Well, I don't want to keep you long, so now it's time to hop on over to Autumn's Blog for even more pretty eye candy!!

Paula said...

Well, this was worth the wait. Your use of kraft & whie is lovely & I've not come across that Washi Tape before - shall have to go search that one out. Love the shine you've coloured into her hair & those shorts. The flower is lovely too & I particularly like how you've emphasized the shine of her striped socks by using that shiny blue brad in the flower to draw the eye to the pale blue element of the socks & the shininess of the brad is remembered by the brain thus emphasizing the shine in the socks. Hope that makes sense.
