All Wrapped Up - Sassy Studio Designs

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  Dare To Be Sassy Thursday's Challenge for the coming week is "fabric or felt"  This was so totally not easy for me.  First of all, I've never made a felt flower with my die cuts before.  So, I was forced to learn which isn't a bad thing, because it went okay!  LOL!  I thought hubby deserved a sexy Christmas card this year.  I love how I hid the tag behind the image for something sassy, but left the inside blank so I could write something heartfelt.  This is definately not my ordinary color palette, but it just turned out so rich!  Check out her polka dot pumps!  I so want a pair like that.  I fashioned a rug out of some coordinating paper for her to sit on, which was pretty cute too.  I punched a little tag by the bow with the stamp that says "mwah", I just love that stamp, it so goes with everything. Okay, I'm a bit excited over this card.  Come join the challenge and step out of your box a bit!  I'd love to see what you make.  I'll be entering the following challenges: - 2 or More Patterned Papers - Anything Christmas - Brown and Cream Christmas - Non-traditional Christmas

Fortune Teller - Sassy Studio Designs

Hey hey it's Thursday and time for another challenge at Sassy Studio Designs.  Wanna win some sassys?  This week's theme is no pattened paper.  Well, I made my paper with dylusions ink, and stamped a few flowers here and there.  Techincally is this a pattern?  I don't know, but I love how it turned out so rich and compliments Lindsay's digi perfectly.  Making your own of paper is well MESSY, but oh so cool.  I finally bought some of those surgical gloves that fit fabulously, so I don't get all inked up, makes it way easier and less clean up of me!  I just have to figure out a way to control my over spritz - any ideas out there?  I'll be entering the following challenges, come join me.
