Stampingbella’s Tiny Townie Willow the Witch

Leave a comment

Hello, today I am sharing these cute Halloween cards made with the adorable Tiny Townie Willow the Witch stamp from Stampingbella. Her hat and fluffy skirt are so fun, and the little chicks in their ghost costumes make me smile.

I made one on Neenah Classic Crest 80 lb Smooth Solar White card stock and one on Neenah Environment 80 lb Smooth Desert Storm card stock. I think it is really neat to see how the same Copic colors look on both white and craft card stock.

Hope you like them!

Hello Pumpkin!

2 Comments

Today I’m sharing two cards made with the Neat & Tangled “Hello Pumpkin” stamp set. This set was part of the Simon Says Stamp 2017 “Stampember” release. (As of this posting, it is sold out). I just love this set, it is so cute! These cards were also so much fun to make.

The top card design is not mine, I was inspired by this video from Nichol Spohr. She has some of the best card making videos I have seen. 

Supplies I used: Copic Markers, Distress Oxide Inks, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables Die Cuts and the Lawn Fawn Landscape Stitched Hillside Die Cuts.

Abracadabra! A fun card for a boy.

This fun image is from Lili of the Valley Stamps, I bought it a while a go, back when it was available as a rubber stamp, but now it is available only as a digital stamp, or at least that was the only version I found on their site.  I think it will make a fun Halloween or even a birthday card.

I stamped the image and then used a masking pen over the image so that I could use Distress Oxide Inks on the background, but I think my pen was old or something because after I did the background and tried to rub off the masking fluid, it would not come off!  I was so bummed because I liked how the colors turned out.  I tried an eraser and that worked a little, but it smeared the yellow ink all over.  So I thought, I’m going to try some tape and see if it will pull it off, and that actually worked, but at this point, there was still yellow smeared all over the image, but what the heck, it couldn’t get any worse and if the coloring looks bad, oh well, I can always make another card. I think it turned out ok in the end, but next time I try this, I think I’ll just use masking paper instead of the masking fluid pen, it is going in the garbage!

Boo! It’s Meow-lloween!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here and seems like such a long time since I have had the motivation to create anything at all.  I have been seeing such great inspiration from many of the people who I follow on YouTube and Instagram, that I finally feel like crafting again.  This card is one of my first fall cards for this year, it is a really cute stamp set from Simon Says Stamp, called “Creepy Cute”.  The inspiration came from watching the very talented Nichol Sphor’s video on her YouTube channel and also from another very talented card maker, Kelly Latevola.  They both have some of the best card making videos that I have seen, you should check them out, they are awesome.

Supplies I have used are the Creepy Cute stamp set, Distress Oxide Ink’s in Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Seedless Preserves, and Copic Markers to color the stamped images. (Sorry, I forgot to write down the colors I used.). I also used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders set to die cut the section for the grass.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the card.

So, once again I’m here to say that I really have been neglecting this blog…I guess there are just way too many easier ways out there to share what I have been upto… FB, Instagram, etc.., but those ways are not quite as personal, so I’m going to try…again…to get better at posting.

Anyway, here is one of my favorite pictures of my cat CharliBear, she is such a sweet and loving kitty.  She can also be very mischivious and loves waking me up at 3:30 in the morning to play or cuddle or just because she wants company.  She is lucky she is so cute!

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Caterday!

Saturated Canary – Mousey Mo

Leave a comment

imageThis is a cute little image from Saturated Canary called “Mousey Mo”. I used copics to color the image and background. The paper is from Simple Stories and I really like how well all of colors ended up going together. It was really fun to color too. On a sad note, the owner of Saturated Canary is closing her digital shop this August 31st. So if you like her images head over to her shop before it is too late! Thanks for stopping by.
