Rubber or Digital?

Hello Sugar Addicts, long time no posts!

This blog is so jam packed full of great creations and hard word done by the Simply Sassy DT that it would be tragic to remove it just because they had not new stamps to share with you.

Krista has moved on from Sugar Nellie and started her own digital stamps company which I am sure you all follow. Now there is new rubber from an American stamp company called Little Darlings. With Funkykits about to stock this range too, we thought it would be nice to look at all the original rubber stamps and some of the fantastic cards and other things that were made with them.

Funkykits still have some stamps to go digital and a few of the rubber stamps are sold out. but there are just so many of Krista's characters now available across all the sites that its hard to choose just a few.

I will come back and share a few of my favourites with you soon.

take care

Hello Sassy fans! I hope your Monday is off to a good start.  Today is my last post of this year and I have two projects to share with you. First, I have Cinders who I thought would be great for this...

Thank You card I needed for someone. I've used some wonderful MME papers and colored her up to match.
I also wanted to take the opportunity to Thank you all for stopping by every day and leaving us such wonderful comments. You guys are the best!

Secondly, I've made this...

little tag with Domestic Goddess. I've been known to hand out the baked goods now and again so I thought a tag would come in handy. This is also the first time I've made a tag of this sort I'm happy with,yay.  It's still not quite as good as some, but I'll keep working on it.

Well that's all for me for 2011 I'll see you back here next year! Until then I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A pocket and a tag

Happy friday Sassy fans!
For today I have two projects to share. Talking about having a great finish before I go on a little christmas break...

For my first project I have used

Domestic Goddess.

She seems to be sold out at the moment but I guess she will be back soon.

I have made a little pocket with this image, that I put a recipe card into. Those recipe cards were bought at Hallmark and I love them since they are such a beautiful and easy way to share the recipe of your favourite cookies and hand it out with some of them.
I was lucky enough to have the perfectly matching paper for that card and also by coloring the image I used the beige and blue from the recipe card.

Since I think most of us store their recipe cards like I do - in a cupboard in the kitchen - I thought that too bulky embellishments would make it harder to store it. So I only went with some lace and that Yum Scale stamp by Stampin' Up. 
To the recipe card itself I added a little ribbon and that little spoon charm.

And these are the Copics that I colored the image with:

Okay, I have been talking about two projects so here's my second one today. 

I got inspired by all those beautiful tags Maria made and decided to try one myself.
I used 

Tease Me

on it. I actually got the idea of putting this gift together from looking at the stamp. It's not really a christmas present but a little something to be handed out before so the recipient can prepare herself for a "beautiful christmas".

I went with a white and red color combo here since the bottle of body lotion was the first thing I bought and I loved its deep red color...

For coloring this image I used these markers:

Okay, that's it for now. 
Just in case I am wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season and merry christmas!
