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...

Tricky Burglar Cats Card + Video

 Are you ready for spooky season? I love creating for Halloween! The card I'm sharing today uses some cute cats that I turned into trick or treaters. There's also a short process video, so be sure to watch!

The stamp is Burglar Cats by Crafty Individuals. Since it is an unmounted rubber stamp, I use my MISTI platform and Tombow Removable Adhesive to ink and stamp the image. Since I'll be using Lavinia Mists as a watercolor, I stamped onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper.

I pulled out paper from my scrapbook stash and found some fun Halloween oranges to border around the cats. This card came together really quickly and I quite like these mischievous little kitties!

Boo to You!


Happy September! I think it's fair to say that once September rolls around it is officially Spooky Season. Today I'm on the Topflight Stamps blog sharing a too-cute-to-spook Halloween card.

I received the cutest Halloween stamp set from Topflight Stamps... I couldn't decide which image to focus on since I loved them all so much! With the Crafty Individuals "Halloween 1" stamp set, this card came to be.

By using the Peekaboo Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn, I was able to incorporate a bunch of little mini-scenes and incorporate almost all of the adorable stamps from the set. Each stamp was colored with Copic markers, fussy cut, and added to their little window scene. I also lightly shaded a couple of the panels with Distress Ink "Carved Pumpkin".

Here are the Copics used to create the card.

Thanks for stopping in! This was a quick one today :)
