Sassy Studio Designs Waiting for Santa

Flashback Friday time at Sassy Studio Designs

This week's images are Waiting for Santa, Greatest gift, and All wrapped up. I choose Waiting for Santa and I printed her out onto Ranger's watercolor paper. I used distress ink and a water pen to color her in. Then I used a Spellbinders die to cut her out and placed her onto a Cricut die cut from the Storybook cartridge. The red graph patterned background paper is by GCD and the blue flakes paper is by DCWV. I triple set the ribbon starting with a white satin from my MIL's stash, then some Stampin Up blue scalloped polka dot with red ribbon on top which is by Ben Franklin. The sentiment is by Stampin Up stamped in black Hero Arts ink. The red cardstock is by Recollections and the blue by DCWV. The red sparkle snowflake in the lower right corner was purchased at Hobby Lobby with a bunch of other foam shapes.

Thanks for looking.

Owl Trio of cards

I have a set of fun owl cards to show you today. I had this pack of 4 owl stickers by Jolee's that I wanted to make in a similar fashion. I had already used the 1st owl on THIS card, which was fine but now I wish I would have had them as a full set of four. 

Each owl is on a decorative die cut by Elle's Studio and the pink owl also has a purple Spellbinders die added to the layers. The card bases are smaller 3.5x5 and are pre-made by Coredinations. The side border is turquoise cardstock by Recollections and Bazzill with a Martha Stewart border sticker over them. The sentiments are die cuts cut from my Cricut out of white Recollections cardstock. The first card's greeting is from the cartridge Wild Card and the other two are from the cartridge Straight from the Nest.

That's all for now. Have a great Saturday. Anything but Christmas

Deep Red Stamps Esprit Parfumerie

You can find this Esprit Parfumerie stamp can be found at


I stamped the large stamp with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with Stamp N Plus gold embossing powder 3 times. Once on each circle and then the white background. The gold paper is by American Crafts, black by Recollections, and white is distress watercolor paper only because I didn't know what I was going to do with it when I embossed it. The only other thing that I know is the sentiment is a Sticko/EK Success sticker.

Through the Craft Room Door

Today there is a new Through the Craft Room Door  which is Anything goes.

I'm a new DT member to this challenge and here is my first card. We were sponsored by Little Claire and here is this fun elephant image that I got to play with. I printed it out onto HP photo paper and used Ranger's alcohol inks to create this color over the elephants. It took a ton of practicing to get the right color to match the DCWV patterned paper. I matted the image onto black Recollections cardstock and finished it off with some Tim Holtz jute and a button I had on hand.

Thanks for looking.

Sassy Tangled Sponsorship

So you are never going to believe this one, I get to be the GDT for Sassy Studio Designs for the month of December too. How awesome is that. I better get to coloring. :)

This card today is for one of their sponsorships at Crafting Musketeers and the theme is use bling.

 So for today's card I used the Rapunzel Sassy image and I printed her out onto Ranger's watercolor paper. I colored her in with distress markers and a water pen both by Ranger and then die cut her out with a Spellbinders die. My bling part of the card are the circles behind that image which happen to be glitter paper by The Paper Studio. I cut the circles using my Creative Memories Cutting System and then I cut the circle in half so it would spread across the back of the die cut. The hearts and pennant are die by a Lawn Fawn and the paper is by Recollections. The sentiment stamp is by K and i Memories in Hero Arts black ink. The pink paper is dry embossed but it's hard to see in the photo. Both pink and purple papers are by Recollections and the ribbon is unknown.

Thanks for looking. Anything goes with optional twist of xmas Sentiment not birthday

Manly Monday Truck

I have 9 new masculine cards to share today. A couple of them are for the younger gents but still fun to get ideas from. Enjoy.

For my card today I used a Great Impressions truck stamp for my focal image. The stamp actually has a fishing pole on it but I just cut that piece off because the recipient of this card has a truck like the stamp and in blue. I stamped the truck with Hero Arts black ink onto Ranger's watercolor paper. I colored it in with a water pen and distress markers and cut it out. I adhered it to two Spellbinders die cuts made from scraps of paper I had lying around. The background paper on the card base is dry embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The white cardstock in my card is by Recollections. The sentiment stamp is a Gina Marie stamp that comes from the All Seasons Stamp Set and is stamped in Hero Arts black ink.

Thanks for looking.
