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.


Flashback Friday on the Eve of Halloween

I also used a haunted house digital stamp from Simply B Stamps to merge with the image.  Coloured with Copics; the paper is from my stash; cardstock and spiderweb doily from Stampin' Up; die cut bats and tombstone are retired Cuttlebug dies; the spider and cauldron are MFT; cat silhouette and fence are Memory Box dies.

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.

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.

Wanda Witch plays Tic Tac Toe

What lol?!

There is a challenge at Sassy Studio Designs for their DTBST (Dare to be Sassy Thursday) to create a card using the Tic Tac Toe board published. 

Fun, fun, FUN!  Where to start?  Well, I chose the row with Spooky Fence, Black Cat and Ribbon or Lace and immediately got started because, I actually, surprisingly, had a vision of where I wanted to go with a design.  Wow.  That's a first lol.

When I was done I waffled 'bout adding a couple of flowers down by the bottom of the fence to cover the top row of the Tic Tac Toe board lol.  I stopped.  But then I thought ah-ha... I also just found a pumpkin die in my stash and could do the diagonal row bottom left up to top right ('cause the image has a cauldron... but I actually found a cauldron die too lol).  I stopped.  The only thing missing from my stash... bottles of poison.  But I'll betcha you could quickly and easily do some punch art and cover that base [wink].  The possibilities abound!

So here's my design with Wanda Witch Sassy (who "might be" a special time-limited digi this week... just sayin', stay tuned 'til tomorrow [eyebrows wagging here]).  Coloured with Copics; cardstock, brick wall TIEF, window die and sentiment from Stampin' Up (as well as the spider web stamped in the upper corner of the window); fence and cat dies from Memory Box; spider die is from an older MFT set (I think).  Lace for the valance/curtain from my stash.

I used my new Fluorescent Copics for the eerie yellow/green concoction in the cauldron and the cat's eyes.  I LOVE the fluorescents!

Sassy Studio Designs

Just sharing some of the designs I've done the last couple months while enjoying some time as a guest designer at Sassy Studio Designs.

Flashback Friday

Welcome to my blog.  Today I have a Flashback Friday project for Sassy Studio Designs.

This is Candy Apple Candace.  I had no clear colour palette in mind but leaned toward fall/autumn colours and then the design/layout just took off from there.  I found some old Cuttlebug/Provocraft leaf dies in my stash, cut the leaves out of white cardstock, embossed them with a couple of Sizzix Embossing Folders and sponged a bunch of inks to try to conjure up a fall feel.

Most of the supplies are Stampin' Up: cardstock; brick wall TIEF; inks; Six Sayings Hostess stamp set; retired buttons.
I put some OmniGel on the caramel part of the apple
Image is coloured with Copics
