Good morning crafty friends!  Today I'm guest designing for Streamside Studios.


These adorable images are from a new release called Little Scarecrows!  There's tons of images and sentiments included in this digital stamp set so be sure to stop by their shop and check it out.

I diecut a stitched rectangle of bristol card and inked it with Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered it with green and navy acrylic paints, along with white gouache.  Once dry, I adhered it to my card base that measures 4.25" x 5.5"  I printed all the images and the sentiment on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and adhered them with foam tape for dimension.

Copics:
Hair/Straw - YR23, 21, 20

You Are Spook-Tacular

Good morning friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun Halloween card featuring some adorable digital stamps from the LTTS Doodles Etsy Shop!

I started my spooky scene by inking a panel of bristol card with Villanous Potion, Crackling Campfire, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered the panel with black acrylic paint and white gouache and set it aside to dry.  I diecut the Spooky Scene Die from black cardstock and adhered it to my inked panel.  The ghost is from the Boo-Ghosts stamp set and the crows and pumpkins are from the Little Scarecrow stamp set.  I printed the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and fussy cut them.  I adhered all the images with foam tape and then added a sentiment that I heat-embossed in white.

Copics:

Ghost - BV20, BG70, R30, R00

Bat - E44, E43, E42, E41, R20, E01, E000

Hello Friends

Hello sweet friends!  Life has been crazy and my mojo took a very long vacation so it's been quite a while since I've shared a card on my blog.  Today I'm sharing a card I made using a cute stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps.


I am in a card group with a few sweet Instagram friends and this is the card I made for our latest swap.  I inked the base of my card with Tumbled Glass and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks.   I stamped the flowers and bee from the Sweet Honey Bee stamp set, colored them with copics, and diecut them with the coordinating dies.  I used a black gel pen on the bee's eyes and a white gel pen on the cheeks.  I adhered the images with foam tape and added a sentiment from a Gina K stamp set.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

I Hope Your Birthday Is Poppin'

Hello crafty friends!  I have a sweet birthday card I made for a sketch challenge on the My Favorite Things Blog

I found some time to play along with the MFTWSC 602 this week!  I stamped these cute images from the Purr-fect Pairs stamp set and colored them with my copics.  I used a black gel pen on their eyes and a white gel pen to add some highlights to the kitties and fish balloons.  I sponged two rectangles with Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China distress Oxide Inks.  I spattered the rectangles with water, white gouache, and watercolors paints.  Once dry, I adhered them to my card base.  I stamped one of the fun sentiments and heat-embossed it in white on black cardstock.  I adhered all the images and the sentiment with foam tape.

Happy Birthday

Good morning and happy Monday!  I hope you had an amazing weekend.  Today I'm sharing a fun shaker card featuring a digital stamp from the LTTS Doodles Etsy Shop

I cut a panel of bristol card that measures 4.25" x 5.5".  I sponged the panel with Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks and then spattered it with water and white gouache.  I decided to make an edge-to-edge shaker so once I had my acetate adhered on three sides, I added clear sequins and stars and then sealed up the fourth side of the shaker.  I adhered the panel to the front of my card.  I printed the adorable birthday girl from the Lulu Birthday stamp set on Neenah cardstock and colored it with copics.  I used a white gel pen on the hat pompom and a black gel pen on the overall buttons.  I adhered the birthday girl directly to the acetate.  I sponged a strip of bristol with the Worn Lipstick and stamped the sentiment using a stamp from my stash.  I apologize for the glare on the card but I find it so hard to get a good photograph of shaker cards because of the acetate.

Copics:
Hair - E37, E99, E97, YR21
Skin - E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
Clothes/Hat - BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11; RV25, RV23, RV21, RV10; BV000, Y19, Y15, Y13
Cupcake: E44, E43, E42; E33
