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.
Ghost - BV20, BG70, R30, R00
Bat - E44, E43, E42, E41, R20, E01, E000

Good morning friends! I hope you had a fun and creative weekend! Today I'm sharing a card I made using some digital stamps from the LTTS Doodles Etsy Shop.
I know summer is coming to an end but I still have a few summer stamps I want to try to use before I move on to Halloween and fall. These adorable images are from the Lory Flamingos set. I diecut a stitched rectangle from bristol card and sponged it with distress oxide inks. Once the inks were dry, I heat embossed it with WOW white puff embossing powder. I printed the images on Neenah cardstock, colored them with copics, and fussy cut them. I adhered the images to my card with foam tape to give some added dimension. I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and also adhered that with foam tape.

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!

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.
Kitties - C3, C1, C0, C00, R20; E31, E30, E50, R20
Fish - V09, V06, V05, V04, V01; BG09, BG07, BG05, BG02; RV29, RV25, RV23, RV21
