Fire beats Roses... Always

Hey there bloggers! This week Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the "Books" challenge at Creative Card Crew, and I FINALLY had a chance to crack out Katniss, Girl of Fire for this project! :)

I chose to alter a composition notebook for this challenge, and I had so so so much fun coloring Katniss' dress!! I was trying to channel the idea of "fire" and halfway through the coloring process I decided to add some yellow for the flames.... I absolutely LOVE the way this one came out, if I don't say so myself, lol! :) But of course, I ruined her lipstick because of the paper I used... It's SOOOO true that the paper choice you make when using copics TOTALLY influences your result. The paper I used was not my usual X-Press it, and I struggled most with skin and lips on this one...

Anywhoo, Thanks for swinging by and have a wonderful day... AND if you haven't read Catching Fire yet, you have about a week and a half before the movie comes out... Just sayin! :)

It's a Spooky Hop... Hocus Pocus! :)

Hello Sassy Blogland and welcome to the October Sassy Release Hop!

This month we are challenging the Sassy players to craft using a Spooktacular Bingo board for a truly creepy combination (am I going too far with the creepieness? In my head I am writing with my Dracula voice... Please read the rest using your own Vamp...) :)

Sooooo, I was assigned "Sara Sanderson" as my image for this release, but when I saw all the Sanderson sisters, well.... they just can't be separated! :) My students have a Hocus Pocus obsession actually, and there are three in particular who do the Sanderson "walk" through the halls... AND when I took them to Salem last year, they even walked through the streets of Salem saying "SISTERS" and walking like the Sandersons... it was classic. :)

So in honor of Deanna, Khadiyah, and Kyanna, here is my creation:

I used the last row of the bingo board (purple, bling, bones, and ribbon) and colored in all three sisters using copics... of course. :) And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the purple metallic paper that I snagged at my favorite LSS, Scrap-A-Doodle Doo! I embossed it with the store's cobweb folder, added some cobwebby lace and viola... :) 

SOOO, all YOU have to do for your own chance to win these fabby  images (and others!! You have GOT to check out the rest of the release!!) is hop along with the Sassy Crew... And while you're at it, take a minute to welcome our newest Design Team members! :)

If you didn't arrive here from welcoming Gemma, then you may have to start all over at Sassy Studios... OTHERWISE, your next stop is our Sassylicious bro, Greg, who has an UBER awesome sample for ya... And if you get lost along the way, here's the sassy hop order:


So what are you waiting for? Get to hopping! :) And I do hope you enjoy!! :)

Girls, they wanna have fu - un...

Hello there bloggers, me again! :) Sheesh, three posts in three days, that's like a new record! :) I have EVEN been able to make a card here and there during the week, which is unheard of these days! :) School is totally still very hectic, but maybe I am getting into a groove? Or just skipping out on work to craft... :) Eh, potatoes, tomatoes... :)

SOOOO, Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun challenge at Creative Fingers this week, and I had SOOOO much fun making Flash Dance Sassy into a Cindi Lauper follower... :)

In retrospect, she probably needed MUCH heavier makeup but I think the tulle was TOTALLY from the 80s and on point... Makes me reminisce... :) I did love my neon colors then, but I almost always tempered my outfits with white... That was just me though. My daughter NOW loves neons so much that she painted her room neon green and hot pink... Colors I would never have done myself lol! :) 

I'll be submitting this one to My Heart Pieces Anything Goes challenge as well as Fab N Funky's Spots n Stripes challenge. Thanks for swinging by and have a wonderful day!! :)

It's a Sassy Birthday...

Hello there blogland and TGIF!!!! :) I'm actually posting this one in advance cause today I'll be taking my lil baby in for surgery (simple frenectomy, but still)... But that doesn't mean the craftiness ends... :) Maybe the REST of my day off will be spent crafting instead of nursing a crankizoid... One can hope! :)

Sassy Studios is sponsoring the challenges at Charisma Cardz (Food) and 4 Krafty Girls (Anything Goes) this week... So I was FINALLY able to make a birthday card featuring Birthday Cake Sassy! I have been hoarding her since she was released and just WAITING for the right moment (and some time!!) to get her inked up!! :)

(Skin: E000, E00, E11, E04; Dress: B91, B93, B95, B97; Shoes/Plate: E50, E23; Cake: R22, R20, R39; Hair: E50, E53, E23, E31)

Her cake looks like it is straight from Carlo's Bakery, and she just makes me smile... :) I used the sketch from this week's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge to get the creative juices flowing, and I colored the lil gal in with copics (of course...).

So there you have it... Please do keep lil Elijah in your prayers as he heals, and thanks for stopping by today! :)

There's Snowman Like YOU!!

Happy Wednesday Blogland!! Adina here, with a seriously QUICK card featuring my FAVORITE embellishment (other than glitter...) :) LACE!!

This week Sassy Studios is sponsoring the Lace challenge at Creative Moments and I had the chance to play with Snowman Pinup! :)

This lil lady was colored using Copics (skin: E000, E00, E11, E04; Dress: BG0000, BG10, BG11, BG13; Scarf and boots: BG18, BG15; Hat: C0, C3; Hair: E50, E53, E31). 

Once I added the first layer of surrounding lace and taped down the doily and feathers, I figured the card was still missing SOMETHING, so I glitzed up another piece of lace using the Mint Chalkboard Glimmermist and created a Minty Green bow to go along with the layout... I have to say it's been a while since I spritzed glimmer mist on ribbon and I really DO love the versatility they give me... Just sayin. :)

SOOOOO, I'll be submitting this lil lady to Creative Craft Challenges' Anything Goes, Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges (Inspired by a Christmas carol... this card screams "Frosty the SASSY Snowman...) :), and Hiding in My Craft Room's Super Scraps Saturday (that was my LAST scrap of that particular patterned paper and I was SOOOO glad I used it lol!!! ). 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope YOU have a crafty day! :)

Sassy America...

Hey there! I have a quick tag to share with you featuring Captain America Sassy in all her American glory... :)

This lil lady honestly just makes me smile... She's SOOO the Sassy representation of one of my all time favorite super heroes, so I HAD to ink her up and feature her on something I can use frequently! :) She's currently on my desk at work actually, cause, well, she's just that hot. :)

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring this week's challenge at Craft My Life and I will be submitting her to Artistic Inspirations' Girly challenge, The Cheerful Stamp Pad's Tags challenge, and Anything Goes at 613 Avenue Create.

Thanks for swinging by and have a Craftylicious day! :)

You're My Kind of Cool!

Hey there and happy Monday! :) Welcome to another Monday, another week, and another challenge at Craft Your Passion! :) This week's challenge is to incorporate HEAVY METAL (Ok, light metal is ok too!) into your projects...And we are sponsored this week by none other than Kenny K!! :)

I was a lil light with my own metallic embellishments, limiting my pieces to the paper clip, gold collar, and staples, but I LOVED using the packaging to Pretty Little Studio's Nature Walk to get the effect of lots of different patterns!

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you head over to the Craft Your Passion website to play along!
