Sassy Studio Designs "Go Green, It's Spring"


I am so excited to be blogging from the comfort of my living room once again!  My brother made a tech house call to set up my new wireless router.  I paid him in pizza.  Bargain.  It was well worth it to be "unplugged" again!  Today I am sharing a card I made for my co-worker's birthday (and for the Sassy Studio Designs "Go Green, It's Spring" Tic Tac Toe challenge).  She is pregnant with her first child right now so I selected The Greatest Gift as my image.  She is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I loved sketch #95 at Cardabilities so I've used it here.  I've added half a paper doily, flowers, and die cut leaves (Sizzix).  The die cut sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set called Wrapped in Love and is cut with the Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics, also from MFT.  The epoxy flat back was made using Epiphany Crafts Round 25 Shape Studio tool, a scrap of chevron designer paper, and a EC Round 25 Bubble Cap.  Papers are Simply Pastels by Recollections.


My three in a row are: Flower, Reuse, Die Cut.  My reused item is a Cheerios cereal box I utilized to make my own chipboard letters.  This is great because you can use any designer paper, glitter, etc you want to make them match your project!  I used the By The Letter Die-namics from MFT for the hb (happy birthday).






 Here's a look at how I made these!










Pretty cool, right?  I need to remember to do this more often.  They add a nice touch to the project.  My weekend promises to be a busy one, but I'll be back on Sunday with a new Corrosive Challenge!  Hope to see you there!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E25, E27, E70, E74, E79, R32, R81, R85, RV66).
