Sassy Witch

This week at the Outlawz our theme is Anything Goes and the sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs. The image used is Sassy Witch. I removed the spider earrings and necklace and added the halo. I loved this witch but don't do Halloween cards:-) I have a stamp with similar words but couldn't find it so I made my own in a Subway style.

Nothing new was used. I used paper from DCWV that I love but never used. I had these sequins forever and never used.

To see the full list of winners check the Big News Forum at StampTV a few days after the hops.

For this first card I used Fabulous Frames and the new Peace And Joy


Patteren Paper is GKD "Merry Little Christmas"
Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, cherry red


 This one was quite a challenge to photograph. I finally took it outdoors. I wish you could see it in person, it is so sparkly. I will have a hard time giving it away LOL. The top layer is acetate. The pine boughs are stamped on it with Stazon and colored with Copics on the opposite side as the stamping since Copics will smear Stazon. The bird is fussy cut and place on top of the acetate. The background layer is glossy paper with the polished stone technique. A thin layer of Diamond Stickles. The Stickles wasn't enough to adhere so I added a layer of Glossy Accents and a layer of diamond glitter then adhered the acetate.
Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, cherry red
Stamps: Peace And Joy


Pattern paper from my stash, no idea who made it.

Cardstock: Pure Luxury Kraft
Stamps: Peace And Joy


I used Festive Frame and outlined with Wink Of Luna Silver pen. Colored with Copics. I fussy cut the bird and attached with pop dots.

Cardstock: Pure Luxury White, cherry red

    Fight Like A Girl Patterned Paper Pack


     Fight Like A Girl Stamp Set



    Here are my cards. This first one I used an Anna Griffith embossing folder and inked it with pink ink.  I added a die cut frame and branches. The butterfly is from the "Fight Like A Girl" set and I used GKD White pigment ink and white embossin powder on vellum. I colored pink on the backside just on the wing edges. The sentiment was stamped using GKD Passionate Pink ink. I used Pure Luxury heavy weight white for the card base.


    I used Pure Luxury Bubblegum for the card base. I embossed my little squares with 4 different embossing folders. I did direct ink to paper over the embossed area using the GKD Passionate Pink ink and layered with white. I stamped the image on a Blossom die cut and paper pieced the bra with some of the great paper from the "Fight Like A Girl" paper pack. I also used the paper for the faux ribbon and cut out one for the sentiment embellishment.
