Frosty Fun!

This is the last of the 4 cards for my mom to give out tonight.
Used the Cuttlebug snowflake folder again with my rolling pin on plain white paper and covered with bed of roses shimmerz spritz. Cut into pieces to make a quilt pattern and then stamped with my Hot Off The Press stitch stamp. Colored the digi from Dustin Pike with regular water-based markers and added some stickles. Puffy paint for the snow and corner accents...added some MS white glitter which can't be seen in the picture. Sentiment is from Sassy Studio Designs and colored with prismas. Added a pre-made bow and quilt block charm that I picked up at Hobby Lobby.
Let me know what you think!

SHHH...kitty is sleeping!

I'm tearing through new 12x12 sheets now! LOL! I love new paper :) I embossed the base paper with a cuttlebug snowflake folder and my rolling pin then brushed angel wings shimmerz on it. Colored the digi from Dustin Pike with Copics. Used red flock on the hat..first time using that stuff and I thought it was hard to use! It got everywhere and then it was patchy so I had to basically layer with glue and flock several times. Maybe the more I use it the easier it will be? Also used some puffy paint on the rim and ball of the hat. Doesn't the kitty look so snuggly? Awww!
The sentiment is colored a bit and then I added stickles. This is a digi from Sassy Studio Designs.

Naughty or Nice??

So do you think this sassy gal has been naughty or nice? LOL! My guess is NAUGHTY!! :P My mom's friend is going to LOVE this card! hehehe!

I actually used a new sheet of 12x12 paper for this...WHOA! I just love all the words on the back of this paper...goes with this image perfectly! Colored my Sassy digi image with prismas and Copics. Added some highlights with a white gel pen and stickles to the candy cane. Sentiments are from Clear Dollar Stamps. Bow was pre-made from a pack I bought last year at Wal-Mart.

Snowman sledding...

My mom asked me to make 4 x-mas cards for her to give to the ladies she hangs out with so this is the first of them.

I used the paper leftover from the gift card holder and pizza box. Colored the digi (from TMIA) with Copics and prismas. Added puffy paint and flower soft (love both!!). Cut the snowflake out with my cricut and added some stickles and a rhinestone in the middle. Sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps.

Lots of coloring...and prisma question?

No card today but I have been doing lots of coloring and now my hand is so cramped it hurts really bad :( Guess that is why I usually color only one and not multilple images in a short period of time. I used my prismas that my nephew was nice enough to give me but now I have a question. Is there a way to erase a mistake using prisma premiere pencils? My image looks great but there is a tiny stray mark that is driving me nuts so I tried to cover with white and blend it out and my husband says you can't tell but I would still like to know if I can completely get rid of the mark. So if there is a trick let me know!

Thanks and have a great rest of the evening....time for bed here!

Snowflake gift card holder...

Quick and easy to make!

Have a good evening!

Sassy Tea Holder!

Wouldn't this just make a lovely x-mas present for someone that has tea bags floating all around the house with no place to store them (like me!)? I used another Sassy digi...can you tell I'm lovin' them?! LOL! Re-used a Stride gum box and covered with designer paper then colored the cameo image with my copics...easy peasy!

Another Card!

I would not normally put these colors together but LOVE how this card turned out!! Probably one of my favorites! I used a cuttlebug folder and a rolling pin for the background turquoise paper and sanded the upper layer lightly. Distressed the black strip with my new CTMH edge distresser and then added a strip of olive green. Stamped that with a Hot Off The Press Stitch stamp. Added some white ribbon and a few white buttons. Then stamped the flower from a Stampology set onto white cardstock and adhered to a black base. Colored the inner petals and added a brad to the center. For my final touch I added some greenish glitter to the outer messy petals! Enjoy the eye candy and let me know what you think!

Sassy Thank You Card!

Another Sassy digi used along with scrap paper. Tore one side of both green papers, punched a few diamonds and added a couple of brads to the ends. Stitching is done with a stamp and I used decorative scissors to cut the top and bottom border.

Sassy 2010 calendar!

I made this calendar last night following the Sassy Studio Sunday tutorial. You can find the tutorial here. Super easy to make and I think it really makes a statement on a desk! I haven't decided if I am going to give this away or keep for myself. Considering I use more post-it notes than anyone I know...I'll probably hoard this all to myself...hehe! :P I colored the sassy digi image with copics, bought the 5x7 frame at the dollar store, used scrap papers, cut the calendar out I received in a RAK from Deanne at Am I A Scrap Addict. Then I used my new Big Bite to punch holes into all the layers for a brass fastener. I really didn't think I would use my Big Bite very often because I like using a hammer punch but now I can see where it could really come in handy! I got it on sale at my local Wal-Mart for $ they are reduced to $20! In my opinion worth having around. Then the cute purple post-it notes came in some candy I received from Crystal over at Crystal's Crafty Creations. Let me know what you think of my project!
