Sassy Shopper!

I've had this wonderful Sassy Shopper silhouette stamp by Stampendous for about a year now, and this is the first time I've inked her! That almost seems like a crime, doesn't it? I love this stamp, and it IS so sassy!


The minute I got this stamp out to use it, and I was thinking about what sentiment I would use with it, I thought, "'Tis the Season to go SHOPPING!" would be PERFECT! Then I added in the "Fa la la la la, la la la la" just to be musical! I designed the sentiment in Word Art, and printed it in the circular shape. I stamped the image in the middle, and I added a Stampin' Up "ooh la la!" because it seemed to work so well with my sassy shopper! There are some Crystal Stickles on the stamped image at the cuffs and pom poms on both her and the pup's outfits. The card front is DCWV from the Christmas Glitter Stack. I ticked punched the corners and added red Stickles to the corners. I think I got the red ribbon from JoAnn's last year on clearance.


I then thought maybe the circle dominated TOO MUCH of the card front, so I took out the "Fa la la la, etc.", printed it in green, and cut it in an oval. I changed out the ribbon just to be fun. I cut both the circle and the oval with my Coluzzle.

Here are both of the sassy shoppers. I actually like BOTH designs, so I'll probably make a couple more of each of them. Wouldn't this be the perfect card to send to a girlfriend over the Holidays? I'm really thrilled with the way these turned out. I love the silhouette stamp! What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Fantastic cards Carol, I love them both too. I certainly have a couple of friends who would love these cards. Wish I had that fabby shopping stamp, I love it! I hadn't thought about making a half circle of text that works really well, I might have to try that out soon!

I think they're fabulous, I love the fa la la la la, it's sooo quirky. I don't think the circle dominates the card at all, in fact I prefer that one. You have a great imagination.
