Good Times!

Hello HH & OCS Fans!
This month it's all about Fall/Halloween for the Design Teams over at High Hopes and One Crazy Stamper. I just thought the "We're All Ears" and "Cawnie and Cawrls Lunch" were so cute that I had to ink them up!
Originally I wanted to have the corn cob as the card base but I didn't size it right with my Silhouette machine and cut a smaller version. So what's a girl to do?...... Mount it on the card front and add patterned paper LOL. I actually think it turned out better than the vision in my head! I used up some scraps from my patterned paper stash, fussy cut the images and mounted them on foam tape for some dimension. I also inked the edges of the corn cob with Vintage Photo to help it stand out as well.
Since these cute blackbirds are all eating, I thought the sentiment "Good Times" was perfect for these friends sharing their lunch LOL.
Copics Used:
C5, C7, C9
YR21, YR24, YR27
Y17, Y23
YG93, YG95, YG97

Happy Stamping!

Welcome Fall

Hi Everyone;

I can't wait for Fall to come.  It is one of my favourite seasons, and it is colourful with the leaves changing colours, the abundance of pumpkins, Thanksgiving and Halloween.

For today's card, I have used the Wagon Full of Blessings from High Hopes Stamps.  This is a CAS card.  A small piece of Design Paper was used, so that there would be room to add some stenciling on the Kraft cardstock.  I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Orange Blush and Inka Gold in Jade to add colour to The Autumn Delight Stickable Stencil from BoBunny.  When I opened the Inka Gold, it had harden over time, so I spritz some water on it which made it usable again. The same can be done with the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

The image was coloured with Copic Markers, and some ribbon and enamel dots were added to finish it off.

Supplies used:
  • Stamps:  Wagon Full of Blessings, Welcome Fall (High Hopes Stamps)
  • Ink:  Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black

Happy Trick or Treating

My card features the oh so cute Angel Bear Clown from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. Personally, I don't remember seeing any costumes this cute when we were trick or treating but I do remember the boys in the neighbourhood trying to scare the girls with horror type costumes and stories of haunted houses on our trick or treating path. These memories helped with my card theme....the spooky house.... eeekk!!!!



After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and pencils for shading I fussy cut him out. I set him aside and created my background. This is an acetate front card so the spooky house scene is on the inside of my card base. I added some matching ghost paper to the top and bottom of my acetate help give the card some strength. The sentiment was stamped and cut out with a stitched banner die and added to the front. A few simple enamel dots finish off my card.

Fall Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I have made for one of my 3 brothers.  October is a very busy month in our family for birthday's so I had to get a head start.  This particular brother loves everything animals...gee he even feeds the squirrels at his condo.  So I think this card will be just perfect for him.  I didn't want to be too froo froo if that makes sense, so no ribbon or enamel dots just some wood embellies that I had on hand.

I colored the sun in the background first....of course I notice AFTER the image is all colored that the sun appears to be an oval shape not round....dah me.  I thought oh well we are going to go with it anyway after all that coloring & besides I don't think my brother will even notice.  He will be too excited about the wood embellies anyway.

Copic's
Orange - YR09, YR07, YR04
Golden - YR27, YR23, YR21
Brown - E27, E25, E23
Ground - G28, G24, G21, G20

Happy Halloween!

Hi OCS Fans!
The Design Teams over on the One Crazy Stamper and High Hopes Blogs are using Fall/ Halloween themed stamps to get you inspired!! "Ghost Trio" is one of my favourite HH stamps for Halloween! There's something about their expressions that just endear them to me!
I decided to make a night sky background for them using a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I fussy cut the image out using my Brother Cut N Scan and popped them up using some foam squares. The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Block Happy Halloween". I also jumped out of my comfort zone and used Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol to colour with. I still have to practice but loved how my image turned out!
I added some splatters to the night sky using a paint brush and some Pico Black Embellisher and some Copic Opaque ink.
Here you can see I also used some gold splatters using a gold glitter pen and water. I was trying to mimic stars in the sky.
Prismacolor Pencils:
Dark Brown, Chocolate
Orange, Cadium Orange Hue, Jasmine
10% Warm Grey, Violet, Spring Green

Happy Stamping!

Leaves are Falling...Autumn's Calling

Welcome Everyone;

Now that summer is half over, this means that the start of school and fall is just around the corner.  Fall is my second favourite season.  There is something about seeing all the harvests as well as the leaves changing their colours.  Tommy's Fall Fun reminds me of the times when I would kick the  leaves around as a child.

After stamping the image, I coloured Tommy with Copic Markers.  The sentiment came from a piece of design paper that I have. Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens were used to add some glitter to the leaves on the design paper.

Happy Fall

Okay, so it might not quite be fall yet but it is just around the corner and this month the design team will be working with fall and Halloween stamps! 

Fall is my favourite time of year. I love my cozy sweaters and the cooler temperatures. I also love that where I live, as the crops, flowers and produce come off the fields I have numerous road side stands to stop at to purchase fresh from the farm items.  

Farmer Clem is pretty proud of his corn this year as I am sure all of the farmers where I live are proud of their produce and flowers. 




I started by stamping Farmer Clem and then masking him off to stamp the cornstalk. After colouring my stamp with alcohol markers, I cut it out with a stitched rectangle die and added some clouds with a dauber and baby blue ink around the edge of a cloud die. This proud farmer was added to paper from Doodlebug, and the sentiment was masked off, stamped and cut out with a fish tail banner die. 
Some twine and gumdrops finish off my card.
