A Surprise Designer from All That Scraps!

Good Morning! Well, I'm a little later in getting this posted than I intended! We have another new illustrator at All That Scraps. The talented Jen Ofiana ! She has come up with a darling little girl named Sadie and some fun things for Sadie to be doing! Today, I have used two of the three Sadie illustrations, but if you go to Jen's blog you will see all three of them :)

My first card is made with Sadie dressed up as an Indian for Thanksgiving. Each set comes with a Sadie and a sentiment to use with her. I love Thanksgiving, so I'm sure this Sadie will be used quite often at my house. I used Cosmo Cricket dp as my background and then a cuttlbug embossing folder to emboss the brown layer above that. I color Sadie with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and then cut her out with my nesties and sponged the edges. Then I used a scallop nestie to cut the orangy color bazzill to mat the image on and of course I pierced the scallops :) The Happy Thanksgiving is sized so you can you the SU window punch as well as the McGill window punch which is the one I have. I inked the sentiment added some gems and pop dotted it onto the card. Oh I can't forget the dew drops and ribbon that I added :) Such a fun stamp to play with.
This one is Sadie dressed up to go to a birthday party with balloons in hand. She's just adorable! I used my Fiskars slot punch to punch holes on the back side of the card and then cut the front so the ribbon would show. Then I added the dp by Fancy Pants and stamped Sadie in Versafine black (cause I'm having trouble finding my Memento ink on my messy desk :) I colored her with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and then colored the balloons with glaze pens. If you've never used glaze pens, you should give them a try when you have a chance. They are bright colors and roll so smoothly and they're shiny when they dry. They give kind of a embossed effect because they stick up just a bit. The do take a few minutes to dry so you have to be careful of that. Anyway I inked around the Sadie piece and did some doodling then matted her on red and let the balloons hang above the matting. I cut the nameplate with my quickutz and then stamped Happy Birthday on it. The Happy Birthday comes in one line, so I inked the Happy and stamped it and then I inked the Birthday and stamped it. It was really easy to do. The red dots are sparkly stickers from Stampendous and I pop-dotted the sentiment up again.

These are such fun stamps to play with and I'm sure mine will be used many, many times!! They will be released at All That Scraps on Tuesday, October 7th at 10:00 et and the release party starts at 8:00. Join us for some fun!

Jen is giving away a set of the Sadie's so be sure to jump over to her blog to comment! Stampin' Spot Studio. You can also visit the ATS blog to see more samples made with the Sadie's.

Both cards are super cute! I especially love the way you threaded the ribbon in the second card. ;)
