Joy Clair - Spooky Greetings

Hi Everyone,

I am up on the Joy Clair blog today with a card I made from the latest Joy Clair release set Spooky Greetings


This is the entire set:


I sponged my background with distress inks and then took the broom and stamped it, after I cut off the sentiment. I then stamped the sentiment under the broom and added the hat. Added white gel pen accents to the hat buckle. the bats are an ancient punch by Martha Stewart.




Hope you liked this!

Muse Christmas Vision #63

Hi Everyone,

I am back to stimulate you to pull out your Christmas supplies and play with us at the Muse Christmas Vision!


I first took a Tim Holtz embossing folder and embossed those trees. I took a light grey Copic marker and drew in some shadow to the left of each tree. The decorated penguin is from a Joy Clair stamp set called Winter Penguins (lots of cute ones to choose from). I colored in the lights and added sequins and the sentiment, which is by STAMPlorations, the set is called Oh Christmas Tree


So, there are so many ways to CASE this - I am sure you'll find your own unique one! 

Hope to see you at MCV!

Skipping Stones Design - Imagine

Hi Everyone,

I am up on the Skipping Stones Design blog today.


I am using the pretty set called "Imagine"

 

I stamped the two birds onto white card stock with Versamark ink and heat embossed them  in white. I colored them with water color and fuzzy cut them.  I took the same birds and my Misti and repeatedly stamped them in grey. I trimmed the card panel and added the sentiment - from Best of Birds. Then I mounted the colored birds over the middle grey ones with foam tape. Added a strip of PP at the bottom and mounted my card panel with foam tape.


Happy stamp coloring!

I have this roll of cork at home and it needs to be used......
I took an iStencil and sponged in black ink and then took gold embossing paste and embossed it. let it dry. Added the birthday die cut (STAMPlorations) and die cut it in black and gold metallic paper. Added the ZAPPY (Papertrey) and two gold embellies.

So Suzy - Beach Grass

Hi Everyone,

I am back today with another card I made with those wonderful stamps So Suzy carries.


those are the two stamps I used:





I started making a brown "puddle" with my Brushos. Took the beach grass stamp and inked it with distress inks and then spritzed it with water. Did two impressions with each inking and used brwon as well as green distress inks.



I then took some green and loosely brushed it about my brown puddle and some of the grass stems.


Added blue splatters and a strip of wood paper on the left side. Added the sentiment. And then I thought a few blue butterflies would bring more life to my little scene - they are Memory Box die cuts.
