Best Witches

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I created this "Best Witches" card for the Lawn Fawn blog and you can head over there by clicking, here, to view all the stamps and dies I used to create this spooky--yet adorable, card. To create the background sky I used the seedless preserves distress ink, and black soot distress ink. If you look closely you'll noticed that after coloring in the trees with my Copics I also distressed them with the black soot ink to make them match the dark night scene. I also did some masking with the cat and her witch hat then I cut that image out and left a slight boarder around the whole image. I hope you enjoyed this card! Let me know what you think in the comments!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week--Scripty Joy and Winter Penguin

Monday, October 20, 2014

I'm so excited to be sharing my creations using the new, Scripty Joy die, and the Winter Penguin mini stamp set. I can't say enough how adorable the winter penguin set is! It's a small yet super affordable set, and you can also purchase the coordinating die. I loved working with the, scripty joy, die and I used it on the card shown above with the Violet's ABCs alphabet stamp set to create the sentiment, "Joy to the world". Since it's a well known song I thought it would be fitting to use the music sheet paper from the new Snow Day collection. I love that sheet paper so much! When creating the "Happy Holidays" penguin card I wanted to make it look like she was skating in over a frozen lake so I used the forest boarder die along with the stitched hillside boarder dies to achieve that look. I also used the trees from the, Snow Day, stamp set and stamped them in a few different colors for some added interest. To tie these cards together I also used some of the metallic gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I hope you love them!

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week--Hedgehugs

Monday, October 20, 2014

Today is day 3 in the Lawn Fawn Inspiration week celebration, and the set being featured is, Hedgehugs. While this set may be small it sure does contain a whole lot of cuteness. You could use this stamp set to send some love to a friend; or, separate the sentiment and use it for a holiday theme card like I did with my card. I also used the new lawn fawndamentals in the cranberry color and I love how those notecards are perfect for Christmas cards. I also used the awesome stitched rectangle dies—and they make card making a cinch! If you’d like to view all of the other samples by the design team head over to the Lawn Fawn blog by clicking, here. While you’re there check out Kelly Marie’s intro video for a more detailed look at this mini set, and even get a chance to win your very own stamp set! 

Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week--Finley's ABCs, 123s, and Violets ABCs

Sunday, October 19, 2014

 Today is another fun day in a week long inspiration week with Lawn Fawn! Today Kelly Marie, is introducing Violet's ABCs, Finley's ABCs, and Finley's 123s. These sets are so much fun to use when creating so many different types of projects. For instance, I used a combination of Finley's ABCs and 123s to create a mini Christmas banner using the stitched banner dies. I also used Violet's ABCs to take an already existing sentiment and simply make it bigger. For more inspiration go ahead and visit the Lawn Fawn blog by clicking, here, and you can also view Kelly's awesome intro video with a more detailed look into the stamp and die sets. You'll also get a chance to win a stamp set!

Blick Art Haul

Monday, October 6, 2014

Over the weekend I stopped by Blick to purchase some much needed Copic refills for two of my most used markers; and, while I was there I decided to look around and see what interesting things I could find. The last last time I was there about a few months ago I hadn't yet discovered my love for watercoloring so I didn't really pay any attention to all the tools, paper, and other accessories they had available for that particular medium. So this time around I was pretty excited to ask about all the cool things I could use and test out. One of the employees there mentioned these really cool watercolor pencils--and since they were on sale I thought I'd give them a try. When I got home I tested them out on one of the watercolor postcards I purchased (in a set) and they seemed to work very well. The colors are really vibrant and I love that. Aside from the watercolor pencils and Copic refills, I also purchased a pack of blank watercolor post cards, some really thick 140lb. watercolor cardstock, a Copic color swatch book, and some carving rubber to make a handmade stamp. I can't wait to make some new things with these.

Did you do any craft/art shopping this weekend?

Celebrate--Featuring V's Sweet Ideas Stamps

Friday, October 3, 2014

Today I'm excited to guest design for, V's Sweet Ideas! She has recently released four new stamps sets and, Birthday Wishes, was one of my favorites--I think it's so cute. This set is so great because it's a mini; and, that means it's also a great price. There are lots of images and sentiments--which makes it a versatile set. I'm super obsessed with watercoloring right now so of course I had to include a bit of that in this card I made. If you get a chance head on over to her website--you can find links to all of the new stamps sets for sale. You can also find her blog link--she's going to be doing a giveaway soon!

Have a great weekend!
