Ballroom Sassy

Hello fellow crafters,
Today's card is for a very special friend, Diane, and I just wanted to make this card to tell her how much I value our friendship. We have been friends for an amazing 50 years this week!!! We met during our first week in High School, and our mutual love of horses and music had us bonding immediately. Diane was my bridesmaid, and I hers. She and her husband came to our 40th Wedding Anniversary celebration last year. Geographically we have lived long distances apart since we left school, but have maintained our deep friendship through 'thick and thin'. Happy 50th Anniversary dear friend!

I have used a digi stamp, Ballroom Sassy by one of our sponsors, Sassy Studio Designs.
She's quite a 'glamour-puss', isn't she.
A closer look. I was pleased at how the Platinum Stickles
shows up in her 'buckle', necklace and hairpin. I
applied it with a 'pokey tool'.

  14. THIS IS GORGEOUS! Thats the only word to describe it. What did you use for the brown corners ?

  15. I am having difficulty find the digi stamp on Sassy's site. Could you point me in the right direction?
    Thanks so much!

    1. Hello Deborah,
      Thank you for your kind comment, and enquiry. I checked out your blog...lovely glad you are blogging again.

      I tried to email you with your profile and blog email addresses, but they seem to be no longer active??

      To answer your queries, the brown corner die-cut is a very old Cuttlebug set of 4, 2"x2" dies called 'Vintage Corners' - I just cut two of them, and then cut each of those in half. (I often do that with small medallion type die-cuts to create something different).

      As for the Sassy digi stamp, she is definitely called 'Ballroom Sassy'. I was alloted her to use for my Design Team project. I had a look on the Sassy Studio Designs shop website, and could not find her either. I think I read that they have been having trouble with their site, so perhaps you could email them, using the email link on the left side of their sidebar.

      I hope this has been of some help to you, Deborah.
