Happy Halloween - SAT dt

Hi there!!  It's my turn over on the Stamp Anniething Blog and I have a Halloween themed card to share with you for this month's theme challenge.  I used the "Sofia - Viva la Vida" stamp set from the most recent stamp release for my card.   I let the background papers I chose help inspire the colors for my image and then colored with my copic markers.


I love adding purples to my Halloween schemes!  I have 3 grown daughters now and they were never into the scary side of Halloween so I tend to gravitate toward the cutesie side ;  I pulled out a forgotten border punch - the Martha Stewart "drippy goo" punch, remember that one?!  My sentiment is from a retired Craftin Desert Divas stamp set and is meant to look a bit creepy! 

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you will join in the fun with this months challenge -


You can link up your projects HERE.

Stamp Anniething's October Release!

`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~



I thought it would be fun to turn this image into a tag to go with a face mask.  I colored the face in a green similar to your standard face mask ;)  All my coloring was done with my copic markers.

Stamp Anniething October Release - Day 2



Hi and welcome to Day #2 of 
Stamp Anniething's October Release!



Eloise will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we showed you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~



I colored this sweet image in with my copic markers.  To be honest this is the first time I have tried black hair and I was a bit nervous ;) I definitely need to get a couple more darker markers to add in to the hair color mix but overall I was pretty satisfied with my first attempt!



  I added a die cut fan out of gold cardstock.  The fan is a file from the Silhouette store - #7838.


Thank you for joining us, we hope you enjoyed our projects for this release!

 Have a great day!

Hey Foxy! - Die Cuttin Divas Guest DT

Today I am guest designer over on the Die Cuttin Divas Blog.  


The challenge for this week is a sketch - 


Here is what I came up with - 


What a fun sketch to work with!!  Feeling in the fall mood I decided to use some fall themed papers from Doodlebug as my inspiration.  I then went through my collection of Doodlebug Designs cutting files and chose this cute fox - I got my file from the Silhouette store #211355.  My sentiment is from an old My Pink Stampers stamp set.  This is a great sketch to work with papers and files that have been in your stash for awhile now too ;)  I hope you will join in the challenge this week!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Enjoy Autumn!! - SAT dt

Hi there!!  Today is my turn to post on the Stamp Anniething Blog and I have a fun card to share with you!  I have always wanted to create this style of card and I felt like this stamp image - "Julie enjoy the ride" - worked perfectly for this type of layout.


The card base is created from a couple of different files from the Silhouette Online Store - #211031 and #181831.  My card fits perfectly with the current Stamp Anniething Theme challenge - "Autumn".  


I colored the image in with my copic markers - 
Hair - E21, 23, 25, 27
Skin - E04, 11, 00, 000 and R20
Dress - Y15, 17 and YR23
Bike - BG13, 18
Basket - E33, 35
Flowers - BV08, Y17, YG25, RV25, YR07

My sentiment came from a CardzTV Stamps set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Day 5 Jaded Blossom September Release

Today is Day 5 of the Jaded Blossom September Release and the design team is showcasing a new stamp set - "Fall Origami" and a new die - "Happy Halloween" (which is the freebie for orders $40 or more).  
I pulled out my Zig watercolor markers and created a card - 


I stamped and embossed the pumpkins randomly across the background.  I used Versafine Black Onyx and some Recollections clear embossing powder.  I used my Zig markers and a paintbrush and water to color in my background layer.  I then cut a border out of complimentary papers to back the "Happy Halloween" sentiment which was cut with the freebie die.  Finally I adhered some coordinating sequins from my stash.  




Tonight is the blog hop for the Jaded Blossom September Release so I hope you'll come back and visit again later!! The fun starts at 4pm PST!!

Stamp Anniething Theme Week Challenge


Hi there!!  Today is my turn to post a project on the Stamp Anniething Blog and I am sharing the card I made for the current challenge - "Autumn".  


Since the theme is Autumn I picked some fall inspired background papers and stuck to more warmer tones on my stamped image.  



When my girls were little they loved to build "fairy houses" especially in the fall months because there were so many leaves on the ground that they could use.  This memory is what inspired my card for today using "Kelsey - Believe".  


I hope your fall is off to a good start and that I have inspired you to create a fall project to link up for the Autumn challenge.  

How to Play Along:

- Create a new project inspired by  an "autumn leaves" theme.
-Share your creation at Our Facebook Group HERE by October 3, 2017
-Only one entry 
-A Stamp of your choice will be awarded to the winner, if we have five or more entries.

Jaded Blossom September Release - Day 4

Today's Day 4 of the Jaded Blossom September Release and today the design team is showcasing the new stamp set "Voodoo You Love".  

When I first saw this stamp set I immediately thought of a donut shop we have out here in Oregon called "Voodoo Donuts".  They have all sorts of fun donuts such as a maple bar with bacon on top!!  They even make a voodoo doll donut!!  



I made a very simple treat bag topper by folding over some cardstock and adding some fun designer paper on top.  I colored in the Voodoo doll image and then embossed my sentiment in white.  





Tomorrow is the last day of the September Release and also the blog hop in the evening so I hope I see you back here then!  You will definitely want to check out the rest of the Jaded Blossom design team projects HERE!!

I am super excited to be guest designing this month for Jaded Blossom!!  Today the design team is showcasing a new die set - "Fall Banner Dies" and two new stamp sets - "Pumpkin Faces" and "Pumpkins".   Here is my project for the first day of the release -


I used the new Jaded Blossom "Pumpkin Faces" stamp set and created these cute little pumpkin treat boxes.  I used a file from the Silhouette store (100175) for my pumpkin box.  I decreased it from the original size to 75% in order to get the box to a size that worked best with the size of the pumpkin faces.  These fun faces are going to be so much fun to play with - LOVE this set!!
