Hey pumpkin - Card

Hello everyone.

I have a card to share and it's my first Halloween card of the season.   I have to admit as much as I love all the Halloween stamps and decorations we are not much into the holiday.  

I used the SSS hey pumpkin stamp set, distress inks, LF sequins and Copics to color the kitty and pumpkin. I used Versafine onyx fir the sentiment and a Fabre castel PITT artist pen in size M for the lines around the image. I also used some embroidery thread behind the image to add dimension. The stencil is one I found at Michaels in a four pack of 3x3 stencils. The card is 4x4.25  and to finish it off I used Wink if Stella clear glitter pen but unfortunately you can't see it. 

I wanted to let you all know that I may not be posting much in the next few weeks as I have my grandmother who is in palliative care so I'm spending most of my time with her and my family. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Lawn Fawn - Thinking of you Card

Hello everyone,

Here is a card I made with the Lawn Fawn "Friendship Grows" stamp set.  I stamped the image with Ranger Archival ink and coloured in the sunflower with distress inks.   I used embossing paste and coloured it with distress ink and then I used Tim Holtz Honeycomb stencil for the background.  

         I used the Mama Elephant Femme Frames stitched rectangle die to cut it out the panel.  I then cut out a piece of vellum and sewed it on the top and bottom of my panel.  I mounted that onto a piece of mustard colour card stock that came with an old SSS CK and I'm sorry but I don't have the colour anymore.  I then mounted all of that onto my card base which is Recollections 110# card stock.  I used the Lawn Ornaments sequins that came from another CK but they are no longer listed on the SSS website.  I also used Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Crystal Clear sequins as well.

         I then stamped the sentiment with Memento tuxedo black ink from the "In my Heart" stamp set, which is SO adorable!

Thanks for stopping by!

See you again soon.

S'More fun! - Lawn Fawn Card

Hello everyone,

Well today was the first day of school for my girls and it was successful.  My youngest did not do so well at first as she is going into grade 1, but she did great after a few minutes.  My oldest did great, as soon as she saw her friends, mom and dad could be on their way!

I have a card to share with you that I made with Lawn Fawn's Love you S'MORE set.

I needed to get used to my distress inks as I was not getting the hang of the blending part.  I was always getting streaks no matter what I did but stubbornness prevailed and I think I figured it out...for this time at least!  I used Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord as well as Mowed Lawn and Forrest Moss (all purchased as Simon Says Stamp) to give the hills and grass some dimension and I used the Mini ink blending tool and the regular ink blending tool as well.

 I used the Grassy Border dies from LF at the bottom as the bottom of the card needed something so I used a strip of grass to fill it in and I think it did the trick.  I did used the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio dies for the hills as my LF Stitched Hillside Borders Dies aren't in yet (but they are on there way!!!!!!) Unfortunately they are currently out of stock but it won't take long for them to get more in.

I used the Tiny Back Drops with Hero Arts white embossing powder for the starry background and the sentiment which I embossed on a piece of black card stock.  I used my copics to colour in the critters, moon and the flames.

You can't see it very well but I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the marshmallows and the flames.  I used Recollections 110# card stock as well as a Kraft card base and I stamped the LF Woodgrain Backdrops on the base just for an additional element.

Thanks for stopping by!

See you soon with another card.

Cutting Edge Blog Hop - Pretty Pink Posh

Hello everyone,

I'm joining the Cutting Edge Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.

There are some wonderful sponsors as you can see.

Now for my card.  I was going through Debbie Hughs blog the other day and I was inspired by one of her cards.  You can see it here.

I used the "Under the Sea" set from the Simon "This is the life" release.  I die cut them from the coordinating die set and coloured them in with my copics.  I wanted the fish to look like it was swimming up and down in the water so one of the fish is pointing up.  I popped up one of the fish with foam dots.

I used the coordinating stencil to do the background and I used my Tim Holtz mini distress inks in Salty Ocean and Broken China.  I used the Pretty Pink Posh new die set "Stitched Duo 2" set and I used both pieces.  I had some embroidery thread and used that in the back.  They to finish it off I used the Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Crystal Clear sequins and the Simon Says Stamp assorted 4mm and I think the itty-bitty ones are 2mm and I used those for the bubbles.  I stamped the sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink.  For the card stock I used the Recollections 110# white card.
