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!
