Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #109 - Holiday Scraps


Hello and welcome to a very special Dare To Be Sassy Thursday from Sassy Studio Designs! This is our first monthly holiday challenge of the year! Because it's never too early to start! :) We've decided to do things a bit differently this time around, though... Instead of a separate challenge, we will incorporate a holiday theme into our last DTBST challenge of every month. This way we can all get a jump start on those Christmas cards without the added pressure of yet another challenge! The rules for the challenge are the same as any DTBST, with two exceptions: Your creation MUST be holiday themed, and IF you use a Sassy Studio Designs image you will get an extra draw entered for the prize! Sassy images are not required to play along, but we sure do love it when you do! And an extra chance at winning the prize?! Pretty fabulous, right?!

So our theme for January is "Holiday Scraps". It's simple: grab those gorgeous half used sheets of designer paper and get to work creating a new holiday masterpiece! If you're anything like me, they haven't even all been put away yet! lol My papers are from a Stampin' Up series called Holiday Treasures, and I think this may be my third year using them! The beautiful image is Holiday Belle Honey from Sassy Studio Designs' holiday collection. Isn't she enchanting? I've paper pieced her gown with a festive red and pink houndstooth patterned paper that is also part of the SU pack. The rest of her is colored in Copics. I also gave her a little pearl earring to match the pearls elsewhere on the card.

The layout for my creation is taken from this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge (#130). I've used some of my favorite things for my embellishments: Pearls. Seam binding. Flowers. My Spellbinders dies. Oh, and a darling little jingle bell charm that a friend sent me a long time ago in a crafty care package.

Please head over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog to see what my talented team mates have to share with you! And while you're there, we hope you'll join in the fun!

Markers use: Copics (E11, E21, E00, E04, R20, E25, E27, E34, YG95, YG97, R46).

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
- The Sisterhood of Crafters: Stripes
- Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Challenges: #23 - Pearls or Bling
- Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog: #96 - Paper Piecing
