Hoppy Halloween

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing another fun Halloween card.


I was on Instagram the other day and ran across the cutest little Halloween digis.  Since I love all things Halloween I had to check it out.  These adorable little bunnies are from the IsabelCristinaStamps etsy shop.  Be sure to check out her shop because she has other sweet digis over there.  These bunnies are from her Hoppy Halloween bundle.  I stamped the bunnies on Neenah cardstock and then masked them.  I sponged on distress inks for the background.  Sponging on Neenah is not the easiest technique but I think it turned out OK.  I colored the bunnies with copics, placed the masks on again, then flicked white acrylic paint over the panel.  I'm sure I'll be using these cute bunnies again since I really enjoy making Halloween cards.

Copics used:
Bunny 1 - E43, E42, E41, E40
Bunny 2 - E33, E31, E30, E50
Bunny 3 - W2, W1, W0
Bunny Ears - E02, E00, E000
Witch Costume - C7, C5, C3, YG17, YG03, YG01
Pumpkin Costume - YR18, YR14, YR12, Y35, YG17, YG03, YG01
Cat Costume - E09, E08, YR18, YR14

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Happy Haunting

Good morning!  I've been making lots of Halloween cards lately and today I'm sharing one that features a cute set from The Greeting Farm. 


These not-very-spooky stamps are from the Trick or Treat clear stamp set.  There are lots more  cute Halloween characters included in the set so be sure to stop by and check it out!  I colored the images with copics then diecut them using the coordinating dies.  I used the Die-namics Blueprints 29 to cut the frame with three windows and then sponged distress ink onto watercolor paper to adhere behind the frame.  I splattered some water and then added some sequins for some sparkle.  These Halloween cuties are small and don't take long to color so they're perfect for making quick cards. 

Copics used:

Skin - E13, E11, E00, E000, R20, R00
Hair - E15, YR23, Y23, Y21

Snowman Friends

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas card using a new stamp set that I just bought the other day. 

 
This cute little snowman is from the Snowman Friends stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs.  There are other snowmen stamps included in this set but I couldn't wait to color this tiny little snowman and put him on a card.  I stamped the images onto Neenah cardstock and then masked the snowman, birdies, branch, and heart ornament.  I used distress inks to sponge the snow bank and the blue sky.  I colored the images with copics and then added Glamour Dust to the birds' hats.  I used Glossy Accents on the coal buttons, jingle bell, and heart ornament and I used a black glaze pen on the snowman's eyes.  I also added a few sequins for some sparkle.

Copics used:
Snowman - BV20, BG70, R20, R00
Heart - R46, R24, R22

Get Well Soon

Good morning!  I've got a sweet get well card using an adorable stamp and die set from The Greeting Farm. 


This cute little doctor (or nurse?) is from the Get Well Soon set.  I colored the image with copics then diecut the nurse and her medical chart using the coordinating dies.  I lightly sponged distress ink on my card base and used foam tape to adhere the nurse.  I added some sequins for some sparkle.  This was a very quick and easy card so it's perfect for making get well cards to add to your stash. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
