Spicy and Sassy Girl in Shades of Yellow and Gold

Hi Dreamers,
I am back today with my Guest Design Project for the 4 Krafty Girlz Challenge!!!   The Theme for this fortnight is ANYTHING GOES!!  Very nice and easy.  The sponsors for this challenge are:

Meljen's Designs
Sassy Studio 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ A SPECIAL THANK YOU to 4 Krafty Girlz for having  me design this month---Very fun!!  Thanks Grilz!!!  ^^^^^^^^^^^^

For my project I used a fun image from Sassy Studios---And is this lovely every sassy!!  I paired her with lots of gorgeous decorative papers in shades of yellows and gold.

Stamps: Sassy Studios Digi; sentiment- My Favorite Things
CS: Crushed Curry - Stampin' Up
Decorative Paper: Essentials Collection from Authentique
Copic Markers
Ribbon: Lido from A Muse Studios
Yellow Tulle
Dies: Label Four and Fancy Tags - Spellbinders; 


  • Make a card from Crushed Curry CS
  • Layer with Decorative Paper

  • Print out the digital image on white CS---make sure the ink is dry before coloring
  • Color image with Copic Markers

  • Cut out the image with die Labels Four

  • Die cut two pieces of with the Harlequin die from DP
  • Die cut two Eiffel Towers from Crushed Curry and Houndstooth DP

  • Add the Harlequin die cut pieces (diamonds) to the card front with dimensional adhesive along the left side and the bottom
  • Wrap Yellow tulle around card and tie in knot
  • Tie the Lido (yellow) ribbon around the tulle
  • Add the Eiffel Towers with Dimensional adhesive

  • Stamp the sentiment on Crushed Curry CS and cut out 
  • Die cut the Fancy Tag from DP and add the sentiment to it
  • Add to card with dimensional adhesive

  • Add more of the papers and a piece of the Harlequin die cut for the inside
  • Leave room to write a little note or stamp an additional sentiment.  This would make a cute birthday card.


Cute!!??  Pretty sure I will use this for a birthday card for one of my lovely friends.

**********Challenges for my Spicy, Sassy Gal
Simon's Wednesday: anything goes

Through the purple haze: :for the girls

Oh, Happy Halloween.  I am working on covering three hat boxes with fabric (not paper).  I decided to use fabric since the boxes are made of wood.  I still have a lot of work to do on those, but, I will show you when I am all done.  I have to fly...lots on the schedule for today!!  Have a great day!!  Love ya.
