ICS # 25 and Simply Sassy Designs

It is that time of the week again that we get another one of Dawn's lovely sketches over at Inspirational Card Sketches. And I have to say I love this one!

Here is my take on it and I actually stuck with the sketch pretty close. Be sure to head over to the ICS blog and see what the other ladies did with it, they are gorgeous as always. And see what the prize is if you play along...it will be well worth it.
supplies: Basic Grey papers, Bazzill cardstock, Technique Tuesday tiles, Ranger distress ink, Stampin Up stamp, Making Memories paint, pins and buttons, Prima flowers, Around the Block colored pencils, Peebles Inc chalk, markers, tulle, fabric flower, sharpie

I am using this one for several challenges...Craft Mojo (paint), High Hopes (daisies, well white flowers), One Stop Craft (furry things), and Our Creative Corner (pet parade)

I had time last night to play around with a few of the digi stickers from Simply Sassy and let me tell you like having them already colored in. They make for a fast card and you all know I like fast projects..lol. They come with the white area around the edge so they have the look of a sticker. I used the ICS #25 sketch for this one too.

Be sure to visit the rest of the DT over at Simply Sassy they have been busy creating with them as well. Their blogs are listed on the righthand side of my blog.

This one Patrick will be giving to a friend of his that turned 7 yesterday. Now I have to make 2 boy cards for her twin brothers that are turning 6 before the weekend. They are all having a party Saturday!!
supplies: Basic Grey papers, DCWV cardstock, Prima flowers, Simply Sassy digi stickers, Junkitz chipboard, Around the Block flock, Ranger distress ink and stickles, Q&Co and Mark Richards bling, Martha Stuart punch, Studio G stamp,sead beads

I did the inside as well. I pretty much kept it the same. I added a few butterflies with bead centers and a Simply Sassy digi sticker.

A close up of the flocking on her dress (I added it to the white parts of her dress) plus I added some gems to her dress. I used seed beads for the flower centers.

And a closeup of the carriage. I added stickles to the frame of it and a heart gem.

This one works for a couple of challenges as well...The Cuttlebug Spot (inside counts) and Cupcake Crafts (butterflies and blossoms).
I love the simplicity of the digi stickers. They can be used as is or add you can add a few elements to them like I did. They make for a super quick card when you don't have to do alot of coloring yourself. Simply Sassy is a new store so there is new items being added all the time so check often. And we will be celebrating our Grand Opening at the end of the month so be sure to check back for all the details there will be games, challenges and of course prizes. I will be posting more about this soon or you can check the Simply Sassy blog.

Also, you still have time to play along at Scrap and Stamp Saturday! The patriotic challenge ends on July 17th! So head over to get the details or visit this post. There will be a new challenge up on Saturday!
