Pink?!

Yes, my project is decidedly pink lol.  It's not usually "in my wheelhouse" and I have to really think about it as I colour and design but I think you'll agree that it suits the image.

Meet Abbie.  She is by Conie Fong.  I've created my project with her to enter our group's Facebook challenge of "anything goes".  Conie's images are timeless and were sold through Sweet Pea Stamps.  However, Sweet Pea has closed their doors so Conie has created a Facebook Group, Conie Fong Art & Design, where we can share our love of her images and there will soon be an Etsy Shop where we can still buy the images.

Coloured with Copics.  Scrapbook paper, doily and the little dew drops are from my stash and cardstock is current and retired from Stampin' Up.  Embossing folders, punches and dies from SU.

New Year fun

Cute as a Button has some oh-so-cute new images (ALL Francesca's images are cute.  I'm a bit of a fan lol ;-) ).  I fell in love with and had to have a couple of the "New Year" images.  What I love about these is that you really could create something other than New Year projects with 'em.  Celebrations, thank you for hosting a party, birthday, late birthday...  You could crop them and just use the gorgeous faces... the possibilities are endless.

So here are the "colourings" and I hope I can make some time to make some projects/cards with 'em (but the immediate future needs to involve some Christmas decorating as the time is getting very near!).

Coloured with Copics.
Happy New Year
Countdown



I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus...

Here is the Christmas card I created for my better half (don't worry, I've given it to him already lol).

Image: Simply B Stamps, Mr & Mrs Claus

You can get her free starting today for 24 hours only on the Sassy Studio  Designs Facebook Group page.

I've coloured her with Copics and all the supplies are Stampin' Up product.

Ohmigawd I'm just so excited!

Oh yes she did!  She did it, she did it, SHE DID IT!  Who?!  Brenda of course (of Qbee's Quest).  The Hershey Kiss Project Creator Supreme.

I don't know 'bout you but I've just been vibrating waiting for part 2 of the Hershey Kiss Nativity.  I was speculating on what just might be in it since Brenda teased all of us that there would be a part 2 ;-).  (For part 1, see my previous post here)

AND I am so not disappointed!  Freakin' genius!  I could wax poetic and go on and on 'bout Brenda's skills as a paper engineer but many of you know.  And if you don't know, haven't got any of her past tutorials or this one... what are you waiting for?!  Her skills at the engineering are only exceeded by her attention to detail with those fabulous instructions.  Photo-heavy and beautiful.  The step-by-steps make it easy as Brenda's done all the "heavy lifting" lol.  She leaves them clean, simple, totally doable and beautiful just the way they are or... you can take more time and add embellishments, stamping and more.  The sky's the limit because, again, Brenda's done all the work and once you buy and make any of her creations... your friends and family think you're the "bomb" lol.

So... without further adieu, here is my first take on this tutorial.  I followed her instructions EXACTLY and only strayed a titch, by making a couple of design add-ons (hooves and the texture on the sheep).  It took me, maybe 3 hours first time around 'cause I was proofreading and meticulously cutting out and scoring every individual piece one-at-a-time.  Don't gasp at the time lol.  It also included searching thru my cardstock and gathering punches, dies, embellishments etc.

Oh, and this is not a paid advertisement even if it sounds like one heehee.  I'm just so excited and happy about this whole project and can't wait for my friends and family to see what I've done now.  And these tutorials are too good not to share.   So... what are you waiting for?!  Go get that tutorial and make your own for friends and family.  This is a heckuva present to gift your parents or other loved ones.  Looks great and the treats are yummy too!   http://qbeesquest.blogspot.ca/p/tutorials.html


Thank you Brenda!  Mwah!

~Shelley

Supplies: all SU and all listed in Brenda's tutorial.  My only add was the Decorative Dots TIEF for the sheep.  If you're in Canada and looking for supplies and don't have a demo, please drop me a line.

All good things must come to an end...

Well, this is the end of my guest designing on the Sassy Studio Design Team.  It's been lots of fun and I've made LOTS of papercrafts.  I thank the team for including me in their fun for the last couple months.

Here's a sampling of my makes:

I still have lots of Sassy Studio Designs images to colour (and of course more to buy lol) so I'm sure you'll continue to see some makes featuring their images.

Autumn for the Corrosive Challenge

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the challenge at the Corrosive Challenge Blog this week.  The theme is Autumn.

I thought Candy Apple Candace would suit the theme perfectly.  Apples, fall leaves and the US Thanksgiving coming up - all signs of crisp, cool Autumn days!

Give me a little honey

Medusa Honey that is lol.

It's Flashback Friday at Sassy Studio Designs and Medusa Honey is today's image (available for a short window of time on the Sassy Studio Designs FB Group).

I've coloured her with my medium of choice... copics.  Got to use my fluorescent markers for the snakes and jewels.

The scrapbook paper is from my stash.  The cardstock and stamp are Stampin' Up.  The spider web die is a retired My Favorite Things.

Birthday

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the challenge at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog this week.  The theme is Birthdays.

This one kinda surprised me as the idea took shape in my mind (yes... I'm slightly twisted lol).  I had this cool image called Halloween Buttercream Babe, she is, of course "Halloween" but I thought she'd be perfect to use as an "Over-the-Hill" birthday image.  She was the October Progressive Freebie on the Sassy Studio Designs Facebook Group.

So... voila, a Birthday card!  You could use the Tombstone to put the initials or name of the recipient.

Coloured with Copics (fluorescents used on eyes).  Spider web is a Memory Box die; tombstone an old Cuttlebug/Provocraft die; Sentiment from Happy Birthday Everyone a Stampin' Up hostess set; cardstock is Stampin' Up; and decorative paper is from my stash.

Bow to the Queen

The Queen "B" of course lol.  This girl is an engineering genius when it comes to making 3D projects to hold Hershey Kisses and Hershey Nuggets.  I always look forward to her next creation while still thinking she can't possibly "think of more" or "outdo herself".

The latest creation is a Nativity.  Yes.  I said Nativity.  I saw it and HAD to have it.  I've tweaked the design a titch (just add-ons, nothing to the actual, VERY thorough and super instructions).

You can buy your own pattern and get to creating too.  Just go to Qbee's Quest and under the Tutorials tab and add the Nativity to your "shopping cart".  Be prepared to be wowed if you haven't seen Brenda's creations before!

Almost all product is Stampin' Up.  A few items from "my stash".  The metallic paper on the Wisemen's crowns is some "older" paper I'm trying to use up (and I notched the front and backs so they'd sit better on the rounded heads), the Angel's outfit is a Pearlescent White by Core'dinations and of course the "star" halo is tinsel you'll probably be able to find in stores soon (I have some silver and some gold pipe cleaners too that I waffled about... maybe the next make lol) - I just twisted it into a loop around a bottle top then left a length I could wedge into the back between the filler strip on the head.

Stampin' Up Cardstock colours used:
Wisemen -  Island Indigo (Tip Top Taupe beard and hair/head), Elegant Eggplant (Soft Suede beard and hair/head), Real Red (Chocolate Chip beard and hair/head)
Joseph - Soft Suede robe; Early Espresso beard and hair/head; So Saffron head cover
Mary - Lost Lagoon robe; Whisper White head cover with So Saffron band; Soft Suede hair/head
Shepherd - Crumb Cake Robe; Naturals Ivory (retired) head cover with Lost Lagoon band; Chocolate Chip beard and hair/head; hook is Soft Suede and stamped with the Hardwood background stamp and Soft Suede
Baby Jesus - Soft Sky; So Saffron "straw"; Soft Suede cardstock for manger stamped with Hardwood background stamp
Angel - White Pearlescent cardstock (non SU); So Saffron hair/head
Hands added with Word Window Punch and Blushing Bride; faces Blushing Bride
I also added some "bangs" to most of the figures with the co-ord. hair colour and the 3/4" circle punch.  Scissor cut some and cupcake punch for other "patterns".  Scallop oval for Joseph's beard; large scallop for a couple of the beards; also crimper for one of the beards.



October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Flashback Friday with Pink Ribbon Sassy at Sassy Studio Designs!

Image coloured with Copics.  Cardstock is Stampin' Up.  Stamp Set (retired) from Amuse Studios; button and ribbon eyelet and ribbon from my stash.
