Now on to our DT creations, some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
they have fabulous and sassy images that are a lot of fun to work with.
I have made two projects - the first one is a card, and the second one is a purse size notebook for a young teenage girl.
For my first project I have made a birthday card using Strawberry Shortcake Sassy.
I used a pink background that has a strawberry design on it.
I typed on the words "A Little Sass & a lot of Class"
I colored my image in with watercolor pencils, cut her out and put her in the center of the card using foam dots to add dimension to her.
I found a picture of strawberry shortcake that I cut out and also used foam dots to add dimension to it. I then stamped on the "happy birthday" using cranberry ink.
For my second project I used Kutie Kim Roller Girl.
I left the background white and colored her in using watercolor pencils again.
I wanted this to be appealing to a young teenage girl.
I added images that I cut out using my Sizzix Bigshot, and added a couple of stick on hearts and music notes. I stamped on the phone and the 4Ever, added a cute side border to it, along with a tag at the bottom that says "True Friends".
And thank you to our awesome Sponsor

Now some inspiration from the wonderful and very talented scrapper Debi.
Welcome to our first inspiration post for Feeling Sketchy for September. My name is Debi, & I just love this art of card making & scrapbooking, that we all share.
With our sponsor for September being the fabulous Sassy Studio Designs, they have fabulous & very sassy images that are great to work with, & so I decided on a couple of cards & a LO.
With first card using this fun Sassy Digi Image 'Ariel Sassy', titled Lucky Me I have layered on cardstock, & a little piece of muslin that I have dyed to match my seaside colours...just like a fishing net. I have also added 2 tiny shells. I love to add 'non-scrapping' items to a card or a page...there is so much choice for ephemera ie clothing labels & tags, paint chips, postcards & much more.
My next project is a LO using 8.5 x 11 size CS as my base, & I this very sweet image -
I have also used a photo of my cuteset little baby grand daughter...& it seems like she is pointing to Sassy!
Try using lots of masks & mists for instant background interest. Plus texture paste, impasto, gesso...it is so much fun! With some bling & bright cheery colours, I am very happy with this page.
And my 3rd project this week is a card titled Live, Love, Laugh using the Bathtime Sassy image.
I used the black & white image with lots of layering & black & white patterned paper, along with hand dyed pink seam binding & a blingy heart as a ring on her finger!
Really happy with using the 'raw' image!
I hope I have inspired you to play around with your card making & scrapbooking goodies, along with some other 'found' items.
