SNSS January Release Blog Hop



Hello and a very happy Friday to everyone. Welcome to the Sweet'n Sassy digi challenge #37 and combination blog hop. This week, we're adding a little more fun to our regular challenge!

The Sweet 'n Sassy digi challenge ladies are bringing you a fun BLOG HOP for our January digi release, and you'll want to hop to each DT's blog and leave them a little love. Why leave a comment? Because there's a great prize hidden on one of these blogs, and your comment just might be the one that makes you the winner of the entire January digi release! How sweet is that!? The winner will be announced here on Friday January 27th.

And now on to the challenge. We're challenging you to make an easel card. If you've never made one, you can find a tutorial here.

For my card I'm using a new SNSS digi image and sentiment from the You and Me digi set, and it's colored with Copics on a Labels 18 die. I matted it with some Peach Parfait card stock and matching dsp. I used a piece of PTI new leaf green and cut it with a SU! top note die, then embossed it with a Sizzix ef then  and lastly added some ribbon and a few black pearls.

And here is the easel card opened. I wove some matching ribbon through the button, and added a fancy tag die cut for the sentiment, also from the You and Me digi set.
So there you have it. Now it's time to hop to each blog listed below and see their wonderful creations. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to increase your chances of winning the entire January digi release! Good luck, and have fun!
