Anything Goes at Corrosive Challenges

Welcome to another Corrosive Challenges challenge.  We are sponsored by the fabulous A Day For Daisies.  Right now, ADFD is giving away this adorable image called Snowman Scott.  How great is that?!  Our challenge is Anything Goes.  When I saw this little cutie I knew I definitely wanted to do one thing to it and that was to give him a belly button.  I just felt like he needed one.  Don't you agree?

I colored Snowman Scott with a few Copics.  I also added some glitter glue.  I cut him out and popped him up with SU dimensionals.  I used my MS drippy goo punch for the snow/icicles. I also used some MS snow glitter to the icicles.  I wanted to keep this clean and simple to match the snowman.

Please head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of the design team has done for your inspiration and then check out ADFD to get your own free snowman.

Thanks for stopping by.

Make a Scene

Welcome to another Sassy Studio Designs Fabulous Freebie Friday.  Today's challenge is called "Make a Scene".  SSD gives away a free image every Friday on Paper Craft Planet.  Today we have background images for you.  I am using the underwater scene.  I paired it with this beautiful mermaid.  I colored everything with Copics.  I added some glitter glue on the bubbles and a little on her tail.  I cut the mermaid out and popped her up with some SU dimensionals.  I spent a bit of time putting sun beams coming into the water and it ended up covering them up.  I didn't like the mermaid just loose in the scene.  I felt like she really needed to be matted.

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving today.  I spent the day with my in-laws.  Then my husband and I spent the evening playing with our beautiful feathered babies.  They are so amazing.  I swear they knew it was Thursday today.  Ferguson (my blue and gold Macaw) kept telling me to go to work.  I kept telling him it was a holiday but he wouldn't stop telling me to go to work.  He is so funny.

Please head over to the Sassy Studio Designs Paper Craft Planet group to get your free image.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

The Joy of Giving Release

Thanksgiving is almost upon us and that means Christmas is right around the corner.  Sassy Studio Designs is releasing some amazing new Christmas images.  This lovely lady is called Santa Pinup.  I absolutely love this image.  I wish I looked like this.  I have blond hair and I love green but that's about it. 

The challenge we were given was Vintage Shabby Chic.  My first thought was no bright colors, which is a hard one for me.  I LOVE bright colors.  My next thought was green as it is my favorite color.  When I think about something shabby I think of an old rickety fence so I used a fence punch on the brown paper.  I colored Santa with Copics, cut her out and popped her up on SU dimensionals.  I used distress ink on all the papers.  The lovely gems are from some fabulous blog candy I received from Kim.  She sent me some really wonderful things.  Thanks Kim.  

For this release SSD is not doing a blog hop.  But that doesn't mean we don't have prizes.  Make sure you head over to Sassy Studio Designs and check out all the details.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Immortal Love

Welcome to another Fabulous Freebie Friday from Sassy Studio Designs.  Today, SSD is offering this image called Immortal Love for FREE!  Just head over to our Paper Craft Planet group and get your very own.

I used Copics to do the coloring, cut it out and popped it up on SU dimensionals.  The designer paper is from DCWV's Immortal Love collection.  The challenge is Sparkle.  The paper had sparkle on it already and the cardstock has shimmer.  I added some stripes of glitter in the corners.

Word to the wise, when you want to put glitter on Edward, make sure you grab the right one.  I wasn't paying attention to the tube I grabbed and I am not so happy with the result but I am sure a true Twihard won't care which glitter I used.

Please head over to PCP and get this image before it is gone.  You only have 24 hours.  Make sure you find your way to the main SSD blog.  We have a release happening this weekend.  You won't want to miss.

Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day.

Flutter By

Welcome to another great Corrosive Challenges challenge.  This fortnight challenge is Flutter By.  You must use something with wings in your project.  We are sponsored by A Day for Daisies.  I used this adorable bird.  As you know, my husband and I have 5 parrots.  My husband has recently decided he wanted an outdoor bird family as well.  He started with just a few feeders and is well on his way to being obsessed.  He even takes our parrots over to the window to watch the wild birds eat.  I was inspired by our new family of birds when I made this card.

Masculine is not my forte but I gave it a whirl.  I wanted to go as natural as I could for this.  I used Copics, SU dimensionals, burlap, distress inks, and some Tattered Angles spray.  It didn't come out the way I planned but I hope my hubby likes it anyway.  He is so cute.  He is so happy when he watches the birds at the feeders and worries if they aren't there when he gets home from work.

Please check out A Day for Daisies and then head over to Corrosive Challenges and check out what the rest of the design team created.  And join in the challenge won't you?

I Know What You Are

It's Fabulous Freebie Friday again and just in time for the epic finale of Twilight.  Sassy Studio Designs is bringing you this fabulous image for FREE!!!!  Can you believe it?!  As you know, SSD gives away a free image every Friday on Paper Craft Planet.  Today's free image is Edward and Bella.  The challenge for today is Make it Sparkle.  You can use glitter, bling or whatever to add some sparkle to your project.

I used glitter paper.  I have to say that this picture does not do the paper justice.  It is an icy blue.  Very soft and so sparkly.  I colored the image with Copics, cut it out and popped it up on SU dimensionals. The paper is from my box-o'-scraps as is the ribbon.  I cut out the sentiment with an EK Success punch.  I also distressed all the edges with some Distress Ink.

Please head over to the Sassy Studio Designs PCP group and get your own free copy of this great image called I Know What You Are.  If you aren't a member yet, please join.  We just celebrated getting our 800th member this weekend.  

Here are the challenges I have entered:

The Cutie Pie #30 - Distress

Fifty Shades of Gray

If you arrived here from the amazing Erin's blog, you are on the right track.  It feels good to be back.  I have been off for a few weeks due to my work schedule.  I finally had a chance to breathe and do some crafting.  So welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs Fifty Shades of Gray hop.  SSD  has hit 800 members on Paper Craft Planet.  Can you believe it?!  It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating 700 members.  We have an amazing hop with this new 50 Shades image for you today.  We also have a challenge for you to make a card using guessed it, shades of gray.  The image can be colored if  you wish.

Here is mine.  I used Copics on the image and did a simple layout.  The designer paper is from Anna Griffin. I thought about saying my home-girl Anna Griffin but I don't think I can pull that off.  The main cardstock has some great texture and shine to it.  I didn't want to lose any of that so I just cut out one row of the dp to run down the middle.  Then I popped her up on SU Dimensionals and added some studs in the corners.  

We have some great prizes if you join in the challenge.  Two randomly chosen comments will win two images of their choice.  The grand prize, chosen by the DT,  will be ALL the images released in November and a guest designer spot for Fabulous Freebie Friday on PCP.  We also have a randomly chosen challenge prize of two images from the November release.  Anyone that uses the freebie image for the challenge will get Lingerie Lindsay e-mailed to them for free as well.

Your next stop is the fabulous Star's blog.
