Fast and Easy - Hey lady

I don't like saying a project is Clean and Simple. I think it implies that it can't be fabulous. Instead I like "Fast and Easy." Is there a difference? Probably not but hey...My circus, My monkeys! LOL. When I received my latest Frantic Stamper design team dies I was overjoyed. Each time I think the die designs couldn't get better, Kathy Berger (die designer), hits another one out of the park. The entire latest release is absolutely fabulous. Thanks so much Kathy.
It took me longer to get the supplies together than it did to put the card together. I had a plan and was able to execute it perfectly.

I started by folding my card base in half and rounding one corner with a Crop A Dile 1/2" Corner Chomper. I chose a DCWV white core textured paper as the "sky." I cut the San Francisco Cityscape with both black and brown paper and glued them together, offsetting them slight to to create a shadow. Next I used the lady herself, the Statue of Liberty precision die. I used a double sided foil paper I have in my stash and sometimes it is impossible to cut. As I wanted to keep all of the cutouts intact and it worked perfectly I added foam squares for added dimension. Finally I used the Sunburst Card Panel and a round die to cut the sun. In my opinion the sentiment is the "cherry on top." It's from My Creative Time, was stamped onto Vellum with Staz-On Jet Black ink.

We're all Stars Blog Hop

Today's the day! That's right. It's time for another Sassy Studio Designs Blog Hop. You should have arrive here from Tanya's blog. If you didn't be sure to check the list below to get back on track.

Now feast your eyes on this! I colored Cleo Portrait with Copic Markers highlighting her eyeshadow with glitter glue. The design papers are from DCWV's Stardust stack. I also used Kraft cardstock cutting it with a Frantic Stamper Stitched Scene Builder Edges die and embossing it with the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder. The image was popped up with foam squares on top of a circle cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities die. The stars were cut from gold foil paper using both a Fiskars and Teresa Collins punch. The sentiment was cut with a 1 1/2" circle punch.

On this inside the sentiment was cut with a stitched die frame from the Frantic Stamper Elementals #1 die set.

I hope you enjoyed my take on this new digi stamp. Without further ado your next stop should be to Julie R's blog. Be sure to stop by and give her some love. Also don't forget about the Party Chat at 6 pm PST. Who knows what's in store for those who attend?

Flashback Friday 4/24/2015

Hey all you Sassy Studio Designs fans. It's time once again for Flashback Friday. Every Friday the team will provide you with inspiration on a particular image. These are images are ones that may have been forgotten about, or need a little extra lovin! The selected image will be available at a discount for one week! This week's image is Sassy Bunny Pinup.

Here's my take on it.

I started by coloring the image with Copic Markers. Next I rolled up a small piece of a cotton ball and glued it to the tail. I added flocking to the ears and bling for the earring. I used a Martha Stewart punch and foil paper for the hearts. The design paper is from Recollections. The sentiment is from The Unity Stamp company, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and punched with a Fiskars large oval punch. Be sure to stop by the Facebook group for more inspiration!
