Simply Sassy Release Blog Hop!

It is time for another Simply Sassy Blog Hop, as today sees the release of a new set, which is (if that is at all possible) even more gorgeous than the previous sets! Now, if you've come from the amazingly talented Tracy's blog then you're on the right track! If you haven't or if you're just joining us, please head to the Simply Sassy Inspiration Blog to start the hop ;o)

I'm so excited to be able to introduce you to "Team Spirit", one of the wonderful new characters in the latest release of gorgeous Simply Sassy stamps! She can be used on so many kinds of cards and is just cuteness personified I think :D!


I've been wanting to do rosettes on cards for ages now, but kept forgetting...I know right, it's too embarassing! Anyway, that's what I did here and I likey :D! Just that the bloomin' things won't stay on (literally seconds after the camera clicked the bottom one fell off...) so any tips would be greatly appreciated! I'm also embarassed to admit I've used Maja Design papers (again...).

The flags are made with My Favorite Things Die-namics, the sentiment is by Papertrey Ink and the Copic colours are: E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks), R29, R27 (reds), E44, E43, E42, E41 (browns), W5, W3, W2, W1 (greys).

Okay, onto the important stuff: for this blog hop we all get to give away one surprise Simply Sassy stamp to one lucky winner! All you have to do to be in with a chance to win is:

Leave a comment at every stop on the blog hop, you have until 12.00 noon GMT (CET -1 hr) on Monday 25 July to do so!


I will pick a winner from all the comments and post the winner's name in my blog at 19.00 hrs that evening, so be sure to check back then!


The order of the hop is:

Lou Mac said...

This is gorgeous! Just thee perfect papers for this cutie!! I love the layout and those pennants are awesome! Thank you for listing your copic colours!!

As for the whole rosette deal. Hmmm. Do you attatch them to a smaller circle when you flatten them down? Have you tried using a wet adhesive? I can remember when I made a huuuge one for a Christmas card last year and I used a LOT of wet adhesive and and the card under something heavy until it dried. It seemed to work. Good luck.

Your rosettes are superb with the image & I love those banners you created. This is such a lovely layout - I love this style of yours - just simply classy but a little more than CAS yet not fussy. The white pearls on white cardstock is a masterful idea.
