Creature Feature

  • Stamps – My Favorite Things – “Witch Way Candy?”
  • Embossing folder – Sizzix – “Cobwebs”
  • Copic markers
  • Cardstock – BoBunny and Bazzill

This card design was very simple because all of the cute creatures with a backdrop of an embossed spiderweb stole the show.

I colored and hand-cut all of the stamped images, because I had not purchased the matching dies. I’ve remedied this poor decision by recently acquiring the dies with a gift card that I won from My Favorite Things!

The coloring took the most time, blending Copics. Once I colored and cut all of the pieces, the next challenge was arranging them to my liking. I popped up the bat with dimensional adhesive so he is fairly flying.

Thanks for visiting and, even though it is nearly over, Happy Halloween!

Birthday in Stumptown

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn, “Joy to the Woods,” “Cheery Christmas,” and “Elphie Selfie”
  • Dies –
    • Lawn Fawn, “Joy to the Woods,” “Happy Birthday Border,” “Cheery Christmas,” and “Elphie Selfie”
    • Sizzix – Tim Holtz – Tree Rings die with Textured Impressions embossing folder
  • Patterned paper – Lawn Fawn 6 X 6″ Paper Pack “Knock on Wood”
  • Distress Inks – Espresso Powder, Walnut Stain, Tea Dye
  • Copic markers
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I created this card for my son’s 19th birthday. He likes woodland critters and I gathered rodents and other creatures from a number of stamp sets to get the right combination. It was fun to use the tree stump as the platform for them to dance upon. I cut the “Tree Rings” die from white cardstock, embossed it, and then applied several different Distress inks to get the right coloring. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Birthday, Trenton!

  • Stencil – The Crafter’s Workshop – TCW631s – “Mini Doodle Bloom”
  • Stamp – Hero Arts – CL738 “Messages with Flourish”
  • Patterned paper – Sizzix – “Fox Tales” Paper Pad
  • Ink – Ranger Distress Inks – Abandoned Coral, Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade

I used the Crafter’s Workshop stencil and applied Distress Ink through a portion of it to create the image for this card. The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #228. I mounted the white panel onto a piece of subtly patterned paper from Sizzix. It picked up my ink colors perfectly. I think I succeeded at clean and simple on this card! Hope to see you soon.

I created this Christmas card using several different die cuts, which made it kind of fun, as I mixed different colors of cardstock for some richness and a little more complexity to the imagery.
