Copic Markers & The Greeting Farm Spooky – Color Wednesday #54

Happy Wednesday!

What? A Halloween card? Yes! If you follow me on Instagram, you saw the adorable stamps from The Greeting Farm that I received on Saturday. Couldn’t wait to use them!

Because I got the stamps on pre-order, they aren’t available quite yet, but here are some alternates that would be fun. And they’re all digital stamps, too! Instant gratification!

I colored the pumpkin boy using Copic Markers, and created the background by masking off a border, blending in some Distress Ink, and then using the Falling Stars Stencil.

Hope you enjoy!

Oh, Hello There – Make a Card Monday #261

Hi, all!

Today I created a one-layer card with the To Thine Own Shelf stamp set from the September 2014 Card Kit from Simon. When I designed this stamp set, this was the card I envisioned! I love being able to build a scene with stamps and this is the ultimate builder stamp set!

I used a one Simon ink for the card (Dark Chocolate), and then a bunch of Hero Arts Shadow Inks (Raspberry Jam, Pale Tomato, Soft Cantaloupe, and Butter Bar). The lines on the bottom of the card were stamped using the Thin Stripes background stamp from Impression Obsession.

I hope you enjoy today’s card! And don’t forget the giveaway after the video below. :)

Friday Focus – Distress Inks #4

Happy Friday!

For the fourth installment in my Distress Ink miniseries, I thought I’d try a “faux” watercolor stamping technique with Mini Distress Inks. Basically you ink up the stamp with different colors, lightly mist it with water, and then stamp. It creates a fun watercolor look.

The flower stems in My Favorite Things’ Peaceful Wildflowers set were perfect for this technique. I love watercolored flowers. :)

I also used a new-t0-me embossing folder today, the Polka Dot embossing folder set. There are two embossing folders in the set and they’re really cool because they’re 6×6! For designs like polka dots, the size benefit isn’t as apparent, but they have other designs that make having a 6×6 embossing folder awesome! I recently picked up this set of embossing folders, too.

Hope you enjoy today’s video. :)
