Hello Pumpkin!

Leave a comment

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.

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.

Chili Cook Off Thank You Card

Leave a comment

Hello,

This is a “Thank You” card I made a couple of years ago but never posted.  I was looking through my old pictures recently and though I would share it now.

In our community, one of the things they do to kick off the United Way Giving Campaign is a Chili Cook Off.  The office where I work participated and and I made this card for the wife of one of my coworkers who works in the local catholic school kitchen, as she helped us make the chili.  (The rules for the cook off is that the chili has to be cooked in a commercial kitchen – and she pretty much did all the work as it was way faster – we just helped by handing her the ingredients.) We bought her a gift card to the salon she likes for helping us so much.  We didn’t win the cook off but it was really fun attending the event. I have also included a picture of our booth for fun.  The theme that year was “Las Vegas”, and as we are a construction company, we went with Casino’s that have all been demolished!

The image on the front of the card is a Mo’s Digital Pencil Stamp called “What’s Cooking“, I love this image as she reminds me of a friends daughter! I colored her with Copic Markers and the background paper is from my paper stash and it is pretty old, but I believe it was from “My Minds Eye“.  I also used the same paper to create the pocket on the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking!

 

Last of my Christmas Cards to share

Leave a comment

Hello, these are the last three Christmas Cards I have to share from 2015, now that it’s half way through January 2016!

This first one was for my daughters friend who loves the “Bumble” from Rudolph.  While he’s not an official “Bumble”, he comes pretty close.  The stamp set is from the Hero Arts line called Clearly Kelly, the set is call Kelly’s Yeti.  It is a stamp & cut set, which means it comes with die cuts included in the set.  I used a piece of a Masking Sheet to block off the bottom for the snowy ground and then used Distress Inks for coloring the background and some Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleed Proof White Ink to make the snow flakes.  This one was fun to make and I will probably do this one again.

The final two card are a couple more Lili of the Valley stamps.  I believe the bear is called “James”, and I think you can still buy these stamps.  These two were done in the same manner as the previous two Lili of the Valley cards that I shared, so for details on supplies please see the previous post.

Best Wishes & Happy New Year!
