Sassy Studio Designs Spots and Dots

This week at Sassy Studio Designs the theme is spots and dots. I colored Anna {Nordic Princess} with Copic markers and I will say this is a tough one to color. Those little designs on her dress are challenging to color with my weak and shaky hands. But once I was into it so much I had to finish her up and make her into a card. Imperfections and all. 

The die cuts are by Spellbinders and Cricut. The patterned paper is by Papertrey Ink and Recollections. The cardstock for the flourishes come from a Provo Craft stack of paper. The polka dots on my card are from a Hero Arts stamp and ink. I used distress ink on the inside of the image die cut. 

Thank you for looking.

Purple Bottle Cap Card

Today's card has no stamps in it at all. The light purple and gold patterned paper by Basic Grey. The purple patterned paper in the circle is by Best Creations. All the rest of the paper came from scraps in my stash. The bottle cap is a recycled cap that my husband was able to make flatter through the magic of his barn tools. He's told me before how he does it but honestly its not high on my list of things I need to know. I used circle punches by Creative Memories on the papers under the cap. The sentiment stickers came from Joann's Fabric Store and the border punch that I used is by Fiskars.

Pink Thinking of You

Here is a nice CAS card for today. The image is a Stampin Up stamp from a while back. I stamped it with black ink by HeroArts onto regular white cardstock. I used distress markers by Ranger to color in the flowers and then used a Wink of Stella glitter brush to give it some life. Behind the image is a pink mulberry paper that I pulled all the edges out so they would look frayed. The ribbon is by The Paper Studio, patterned paper by Studio G and the sentiment sticker is by Pebbles.

Thanks for looking.

Doily Card with Bible Verse

I have a little bit different card to share today. I acquired a ton of doilies from my mother and mother-in-law and so I decided to use one on a card. The background is a background stamp by Hero Arts that I stamped with distress ink Tattered Rose. The middle piece of the card is patterned paper by Prima and the rick rack is by Wright's. The sentiment stamp by Gina Marie is in the set Great Bible Quotes stamped with Hero Arts black ink. I die cut the sentiment out with a Spellbinders die and inked the inside with the same ink as the background stamp. Then I die cut a coordinating scalloped circle to go behind the sentiment.

Thanks for looking. I love to read your comments-thank you.

Be Thankful

Here I am again using that same leaf die by Spellbinders. I think you should all go out and buy it because I've given you three ways to use it. For this card I die cut, embossed and stenciled the leaf with off white cardstock by Recollections and distress ink by Ranger. Then I stamped a Deep Red Stamp Tree Bark Background with Colorbox burnt orange pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. Then I wanted it a little bit more orangish so I rubbed on some copper Perfect Pearls. The tree bark stamp can be found at A Cherry on Top or

For the sentiment I inked up a sentiment by Inkadinkado with multiple colors of Colorbox ink and stamped it on off white cardstock. Then I used the CM Cutting System to make the sentiment an oval and inked the edges with distress ink. The orange cardstock is by Bo Bunny and the others are scraps from my stash. I added some Want 2 Scrap pearls by the sentiment.

Thanks for looking.

The patterned paper by Doodlebug and Craft Smith. The die cuts are nesting dies by Dreamweaver Stencils and the tree in white glitter paper is by Lifestyle Crafts.

Get Well Sunflower

Today's card uses a metal stencil sunflower. I applied white embossing paste to the stencil and let it dry. Then I applied powdered chalk by Stamp N Plus to the image with my finger. I die cut the image out with a Spellbinders scallop square and heavily inked the edges with distress ink. The scallop square is on top of two patterned papered squares that I don't know the manufacturer. The corner is a similar colored cardstock and the owl is a brad by Eyelet Outlet. The embossing folder is by Cuttlebug/Provo Craft and the sentiment stamp is by Just rite. 

Thanks for looking.

Fall With Sympathy Card

Today's card is for all the fall lovers out there. I just used this leaf die a week ago for a Leaf Shaker card and now here's another way to use it. I die cut it out of chipboard and then distressed the edges with distress ink by Ranger. Then I stamped the lines on it with brown Stampin Up ink and covered it with clear Crackle Paint by Ranger. Set aside and let dry.

The background was made with a canvas background stamp that I still love with a caramel colored SU ink. Then I inked the edges with distress ink and adhered a piece of brown cardstock behind it. I die cut the rounded square which is a Spellbinders die out of Bazzill cardstock.  I took the same brown cardstock that is behind the stamped background for across the bottom. The sentiment is by Gina Marie All Seasons Stamp set which I stamped in dark brown SU ink on Oriental Trading Co kraft cardstock and adhered it to the lower right side. Then I added a Creative Imaginations leaf brad below the sentiment.
