Another image that I stamped recently and finally colored. I used patterned paper from Gina K Designs with the fun image from Stampendous.
Recently I learned that the owner of Stampendous was moving her studio to her home. The store and factory have closed so for right now, any new stamps can be purchased from a store near you or online. This image came from someone whose Hardware store was selling all of it’s rubber stamps. The name of this set is Jack Stack. I colored it with several alcohol markers. The patterned paper is from the Grateful Heart pad from GKD. The word Boo is from Feeling Fall from Power Poppy.
This card will be entered in Make the Cards Challenge, Crafting Happiness, Four Seasons, and Double D Challenge. All are about pumpkins or Halloween.
I did enjoy coloring this image. It took me a while to settle on patterned paper, the card layout, and all of the needed pieces. I am happy with the card.
Adding this card to Two Old Bats challenge. Not sure how I missed it…I think I was trying to get the ones I remembered and just missed this one.
Thanks for sharing in my card! I did have fun and it is ready to be mailed to someone whose birthday is Halloween.
Our weather is changing with cooler evenings making it feel like Fall. Since it is feeling like Fall, I made a card with leaves.
I used the Stampin’Up retired set called Blended Seasons for the leaves. I moved the image several times in my MISTI to have leaves all over the background. I used watercolor paper and embossed the leaves in gold to capture the water and color. The color palette is from Splitcoast Stampers CC912: Poppy Parade, Crushed Curry, and Garden Green. To make the color more intense, I used reinkers for Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry. I do not own a green one, so came back with a marker to give it more color.
The Hello is a die from Gina K Designs which came in a butterfly stencil kit. I chose to use the Early Expresso color to cut the word Hello and Vellum for the shadow.
I really like how this card came out. I enjoy watercolor in how quickly you can achieve vibrant color on the image.
Continuing on with Valentine Cards for the Assisted Living Center, I made a bear card this week.
The bear is stamped from a Paper Pumpkin kit, Dec 2020. He is holding a heart from Lawn Fawn, scent with you add-on, as well as the greeting. I used a stencil from Colorbox. The bear turned out cute and I know a resident will enjoy the card.
Combining several challenges with this card. The Make the Cards Challenge #44 is to make a winter themed card, while ModSquad Challenge is only snowflakes. My card is square for the MISTI challenge at SplitCoast Stampers. So fun when one card meets several challenges.
I used snowflakes from the Joy of the Season set which was a collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and Gina K Designs for Stamptember 2018. I purchased it used, but it was never inked. I saw an idea from Laura Bassen where she made a rainbow wreath and I love her creations, so I CASED her card. The greeting is from the Holiday Wreath Builder stamp set from Gina K Designs. I used the wreath builder stencil to stamp the wreath. I added dots to the center of each snowflake with Nuvo Drops.
