Belle of the Steps

Crafty Girls Challenges has their newest challenge (#16-Anything Goes) for the next fortnight. The challenge is being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.  As a SSD DT member I made a card for the challenge. I was inspired by the Summer 2014 issue of  "Cardmaker" magazine with the "Stair step" cards on the front.  So that's what I made.

Stuff I Used:

Round like a Bubble

So what's your favorite bubble gum? Bubblicious, Hubba Bubba, Dubble Bubble, Bazooka or something else?  
This week's challenge (#80) over at Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog is being sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs.  As a SSD DT, I created a card for the challenge.  The challenge at Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog this week is "Anything but Square".   I thought "If not square, lets go round!". And after seeing the "Bubblegum Sassy", I thought it would be perfect for a round card.  And I decided to make an easel card..

Like Gag me with a Sketch

Like are you ready for the next Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge (#223) at Sassy Studio Designs. This week's challenge is a sketch.

My niece's 17th birthday was April 1st.  So I figured this would be great for her card. She always wears a bow in her hair and when I saw the "Boom Box Sassy" image and she had a bow in her hair! I thought PERFECT! It is from the August 2013 release images.

Of course I couldn't make and give away a card. (I'm just crazy like that) So I had to make 2! 

Stuff I Used:
Image-Boom Box Sassy digital image by Sassy Studio Designs
Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11

Lips-R30, R32
Hair-E35, E25, E27

Boombox-W1, W3, C3, C5, C7, red gel pen, silver gel pen
DP-Recollections Rainbow pack
Carstock-stash
Denim Duct Tape
I haven't used it in awhile, so I decided to break out my Cricut.
 And use the Accent Essentials cart for the scalloped edge on the image panel.
I popped up the striped panel on homemade foam squares.  And popped up the image panel on more foam squares.  I added a smaller image and more DP on the inside.

I hope you join in the fun and take the challenge with us at Sassy Studio Designs.

Thanx for looking and please comment.

Bunny Basket

Welcome.  I  hope you're enjoying all the amazing projects by the DT.  You should have arrived here from Kitty's blog. If not, you need to go back to the beginning here and follow along.
As you know this month's challenge is to "Reuse and Recycle" something on your project.  And use the Tic Tac Toe board.
You know how it works.  Use 3 squares in a row, Vertical, Horizontal, Diagonal. If you use the left to right diagonal, you need to use 3 recycled items.


I got a little ambitious this time and used all the items. (except I really only "reused" 1 item and left over paper from a previous project)  The left over paper was from a pair of cards I made awhile back.

And my "Reused" item is a section of a egg carton.

Here is what I created.

I cut the foam egg carton to hold the 6 eggs and made the box from foam core.  I adhered the glitter to the buttons with Glossy Accents.  I popped up the image on homemade light purple foam squares.
This was a fun project. It's always good to be able to use stuff that you have laying around.  Hopefully you'll join in the fun and create something for the challenge. And don't forget to comment on all of the DT's blogs.  You could win some of these new images.

After you comment, head on over to Jacki's blog and see what shes created. If you get lost along the way, here's the full list.
