Sassy Studio Nov Release

Today is the day for the Sassy Studio Designs new release with blog hop. The ultra talented Lindsay created 5 new images to add to the fun Sassy collection. Hop along to see all the images used by the DT members. I'm only a GDT for the month of November but am thrilled I got to play with this great image. You should be here from Carrie's blog.

I got to play with the Praying Portrait and I decided to stay with the fall-ish colors because that is what I am into making these days. I printed the digi onto Cryogen cardstock and colored her in with Copic Markers. Then I trimmed her down to a rectangle and matted her with yellow cardstock by Coredinations. The side patterned paper is by Basic Grey and the polka dot paper is by The Paper Studio. The sentiment is a stamp by Stampin Up that I stamped on the same cardstock as the mat. Then I matted it onto a small scrap of GCD patterned paper. The red matched the red in the floral print paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my card. Here is the

Bella Bride Sassy

I'm enjoying my time as the GDT member on the Sassy Studio Designs that I thought I would give a try at it again. They may not allow such thing as a back to back GDT but it doesn't hurt to try. 

 I printed this Bella Bride Sassy out onto Cryogen cardstock and colored her in with Copic Markers. Then I die cut her out with a Spellbinders die and adhered her to a Colorbok glittery die cut. The background is white cardstock that I dry embossed with a Darice folder. The cardstock is by Recollections and the vellum sticker sentiment is by K and Co. The hearts are chipboard from Idk where because they are so old. I jazzed them up by coloring them with Smooch ink by Colorbox multiple times.

Thanks for looking.

Challenges: it with color {Colored sentiment}

 I printed her out onto Cryogen cardstock and colored her in with Copic Markers. Then I die cut her out with a Spellbinders die and also die cut the next size up. The background paper is by Die Cuts with a View and the cardstock is by Recollections. The border punch is by Fiskars and I punched it out twice on the same strip of paper. The ribbon is from my stash and that's all there is to it.

Sassy Studio Designs challenge

Thursday means a new challenge at Sassy Studio Designs. This weeks challenge is

Watch it fall - Use leaves on your project

I used Jane Honey {Near the bottom of this link}because I thought of her in the Tarzan movie and how they are surrounded by the jungle/leaves. I printed her out onto Cryogen cardstock and colored her in with Copic Markers. Then I die cut her out with a Spellbinders die and inked the inside of the die cut with Distress Ink by Ranger. The background paper is by Best Creations and the polka dot paper is by Sassafras. The leaves in the background of the image are stamps by Hero Arts stamped in Versa Color ink and fussy cut out. The sentiment is by Stampin Up with ink by Hero Arts and die cut out with a Spellbinders die. Lastly, the ribbon is by Pebbles.

This is a 5x7 card which is very rare for me and I can explain why; I sell my cards at a store and at my mom's craft show booth and both venues can only accommodate the smaller sized cards 4x5 1/2. So I never make the bigger cards because they just sit at my house collecting dust. 

Anyway, Thanks for looking.

There is a ton of Sassy stuff this week. I am November's Guest Designer and am lucky enough to take part in their new release. 

Sassy Studio Designs teaser alert for their new release this Saturday, November 22. I hope you will join us for a blog hop and DT chat.

You can find it at 

The image is stamped in black Hero Arts ink on white cardstock by Recollections that has been die cut out using the Cricut. Then I adhered the a grey mat onto it and I think it really makes the image stand out against the yellow background.

Christmas Cards all Year Round Mid-Month

I made a card for the mid-month inspiration post at Christmas Cards all Year Round. The challenge this month is not patterned paper. This card is so simple but sometimes I like those the best. I stamped and heat embossed the reindeer in gold glitter embossing powder by Stampendous and ink by Versa Mark. The stamp is by Inkadinkado and the sentiment stamp is by Elle's Studio. The white cardstock is by Recollections and the gold is unknown. The greeting was die cut with a Design Objectives die cut and I distressed the inside of the die. The brads are by Creative Imaginations.

Pumpkin Thankful card

I colored in the digi pumpkin with Copic Markers. I wish I knew who the artist is on the digi but at that time I was not organizing my digi's the way I do now. I fussy cut the pumpkin out and set aside until I was ready to assemble my card. The background paper is by Hot off the Press and it is dry embossed with an embossing folder by Stampin Up. 

The sentiment is an Inkadinkado stamp that was inked with a couple of colors of Colorbox pigment inks and then after it dried I cut it into an oval with my CM Cutting system. I inked the edges of the oval with distress inks. The die cut behind the oval and the orange leaf are both die cuts by Spellbinders. The next leaf is by Martha Stewart and the leaf button is by Dress me Up. The orange ribbon at the bottom is hard to see but it is from Michael's. 

Thanks for looking.

Fall Birthday Card

I have another simple card to share today. This one uses an embossing folder by Darice with Hot off the Press colored paper. Then I inked the embossed area with Colorbox pigment ink and let it dry. The sentiment stamp is by Gina Marie in her All Seasons Stamp Set. I stamped it onto Ranger watercolor paper because I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I ended up die cutting it with a Lifestyle Crafts scalloped oval die and inking the inside. I lightly sprayed it with water mixed with Perfect Pearls by Ranger. The ribbon is from Michael's and the leaf brad is by Creative Imaginations.

Thanks for looking.
