Sassy or Sweet?

Hi Stampers!

Today is Tuesday which means we have a new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge! This week is easy, peasy... ANYTHING GOES! So as long as you make SOMETHING...it will count so be sure to link it up in the challenge blog!

This week we are being sponsored by Shape EZ by TLC which are some really fun shaped files and templates for you to make 3D projects or some pretty sweet looking cards! They are designed by the super talented Tammy Louise Cunliffe. Her products are found on the Whimsy site. She even joined our design team this week and shared a gorgeous project featuring one of her templates :)

For my Inspiration Project I also used one of Tammy Louise's Shape Ez Files called Roll Bag. This makes a super cute little mini gift bag that is perfect for some chocolates, or other small gifts. Take a look...

I used the Sassy Emma from the Sugarplums collection from C.C. Designs. I think she is so sweet and can be used for so many occasions. I colored her using my spectrum noir alcohol markers, all except her hair which is done with copics. I only own 3 colors so far so be prepared to see LOTS of brunettes until I get some more colors - LOL!

That gorgeous tree is the Heart Tree Die from La La Land. I have to admit that I don't have a big shot, only a cuttlebug and the first two times I tried cutting this, the middle of the tree didn't want to cut very well. I ended up shimming my sandwich with two pieces of cardstock, and then it cut perfectly! I just punched out all those inserts and stuck them in a little baggie because you never know when  you may need an itty bitty flourish for a project ;)

My sentiment is from the Tattered Angels Vintage Seasons Timeless Romance set. Love this one! Here is a closer look at my Sassy Emma.

I still need LOTS of practice with my hair, but eventually I will get the hang of it :) See now I think she looks too sweet to be Sassy! What do you think?

I hope you get to play along in our Anything Goes Challenge this week! Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stampin!

This is so adorable and your coloring looks fabulous. Yes, I remember the first time I used that die in the workshop how frustrating it was, but all of her dies work better with two shims in my big shot, and then I found I couldn't have enough of them! Love them.



I have a quick question about your blog, do you think you could e-mail me?
