Feelin a little Sweet N Sassy

Hi everyone, I hope that you all had a nice weekend!

Every Monday, one of the DT members posts a challenge on the sweet n sassy blog. This week it is my turn to host the challenge. Since it is our 1 year anniversary I thought it would be fun to do a challenge around the number one. You can see all the details to play along on this post.

I have a few projects to show you today- 2 of them for the challenge and 1 from the DT round up this past weekend. Here is the first card sample that I made for the challenge:

I colored the image with copics and cut it leaving a white border around the image creating the illusion of an extra layer. I accented the image with stickles on the stockings and spica glitter pen on the flames in the fireplace and candle. The sentiment was accented by framing it with piercing and I tied a ribbon at the top to finish it off.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy Winter at Home
CS- white and red
accessories- copics (E21, E31, E33, E37, R27, G21, B21, B23, B24), prismamarker (black, 10% & 40% grey, crimson red, dark green, orange), red grosgrain, stickles, paper piercer, square nesties, spica glitter pen

Here is my second sample:

stamps- SNSS Winter at Home
CS- white, red, baja breeze
accessories- stickles, copics (BG72, G21, R27, E31, E33, E37), prismamarkers (10% & 40% cool grey, burnt ochre), striped grosgrain, paper piercer, corner rounder punch

For my project for the DT round up, I decided to make an altered frame because I thought they might make nice Christmas presents for family or friends.

I painted the back and sides of my frame with acrylic paint and then covered the front with some patterned paper. I added a ribbon at the top. I thought it might be nice to create additional inserts for the recipient to be able to change out the scripture if they want.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy Stamps Rejoice and Thanksgiving scripture sets
CS- basic grey dp
accessories- sponge, paper piercer, pearls, corner rounder punch, marvy corner scallop punch, square nestabilies
