Happy Hello Card

  Hello, Happy October! Today I'm sharing a cheerful 'hello' card using stamps from Chou and Flowers and I'm also over at the Topflight Stamps blog.

I stamped the bird and flowers from Chou and Flowers "Patchwork of Happiness" set. The images were colored with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils and fussy cut. I die cut the alpha letters and colored with Copics. The white cardstock panel is splattered with Lavinia Mystical spray in Bumble Bee. I also layered the panel over this beautiful paper from Art by Marlene.

A simple card for any occasion! Thanks for stopping by!

Cutesy Halloween Card

 It's clear to see that the Halloween creations are taking over this week! I'm over at the Topflight Stamps Blog today sharing this super cute card using stamps by Polkadoodles.

I was super inspired by the latest Halloween color combo that's been floating around the craft community... pale pink and pale orange. So adorable! I just had to color this sweet trick-or-treater in those colors.

I created the background by inking the cardstock panel with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, then went over the Stamperia Compass stencil in Kitsch Flamingo. The ground was created by just tearing some cardstock and inking it first in Crushed Olive and then shadowed with Peeled Paint.

Every image used is from the Polkadoodles Happy Howl-oween stamp set, colored with Copics, and then fussy cut. The derpy little bat is my favorite :)

To finish off the card, the cute sentiment was stamped inside...

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful final week of September!

Nuts About You - 2 autumn cards

  Please tell me I'm not the only one with a secret squirrel obsession...?! I think they're the cutest things and could definitely watch them all day long. I'm up on the Topflight Stamps blog today sharing my squirrel addiction :) When I saw the Nuts About You stamp from Heffy Doodle, I knew I had to have it.

I stamped every image, most of them twice, and spent the afternoon coloring. I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut the images, and all are colored with Copic markers.

And my finished coloring pieces...

Since I had so many images ready to go, I decided to create two cards. I used Lawn Fawn "Large Mini Slimline Stackables" die for both cards. I also used Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die and Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die. 

For the card above, Distress Inks were used to shade the grass, the sky, and the yellow border. I used Distress Inks Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, Salvaged Patina, and Mustard Seed.

And one with the cute birdies...

Thanks for stopping in!
