Beast Friends - My Favorite Things

Sunday, October 30, 2016

I absolutely LOVE Birdie Brown images.   Anything that she designs is simple adorable.    These were too cute to pass up.    I wanted to create a pink and yellow sky for the snowy background.   I had this watercolor panel that I had created a while back and I paired it with the chunky tree border die, which appears to be retired.    I colored the Beast with my Copic markers.     The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black Ink.    

Stamps:  MFT Beast Friends
Inks: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, Versafine Onyx Black
Papers: MFT Kraft, Smooth White, Canson Watercolor
Tools:  Gansai Tambi Watercolors, MFT Campy Trees, Sakura White Gel Pen, Wink of Stella Clear, Blueprints 1, Copics

Hand Lettered Sentiments - Holiday Tags

Sunday, October 23, 2016

Every year I try to make my own gift tags for all of my Christmas presents.    This year I am using the Hand Lettered Sentiment Stamp Set from My Favorite Things to create some chalkboard style holiday tags.  

The tags are multi-layered this year as I plan to use very plain kraft wrapping paper for my gifts.     Each tag has two layers.    The top layer was die cut from MFT Black card stock using the Blueprints Tag Builder 4.    I white heat embossed with the Hand Lettered Sentiments and used Hero Arts Detail White Embossing powder.    I added some holly trim using Paper Smooches holly die.  

The main base was die cut using the Pierced Tag stax and then trimmed with the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges.   The panel was stamped with the Gingham Background stamp with Jelly Bean Green Ink on Jelly Bean Green paper.    I stamped both the front and back with the background stamp.     I added a stitched and pierced snowflake with Smooth White card stock.    Both the top and bottom were tied together with hemp twine.   I added some Christmas Red Stickles to the holly to add some sparkle.

Jump for Joy - Lawn Fawn

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Here is a fall inspired card using the Lawn Fawn Jump for Joy stamp set.   This is an interactive card with a slider Hedgehog jumping into a pile of leaves! :-)   The main panel was created from water color card stock and then I ink blended the background with several colors of Distress Inks.   It was then sprayed with an Distress sprayer and the water was picked up with a paper towel.   The ink reacts to the water and the water acts as a color lifter.    I then sprayed the background with a Spritzer tool with several Distress Ink Markers.   Be sure the panel is dry when you spray it otherwise the spritzed color just soaks in to the card stock if it is wet.   

The images were stamped on Copic Xpress It paper and colored in with Copic Markers.   I used two piles of leaves to really build up the Leaf pile that the Hedgehog is jumping in.   

Stamps:  Lawn Fawn Jump for Joy
Inks: MFT Hybrid Black Licorice, Distress Inks: Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, Ground Expresso
Papers: Water Color, Copic Xpress it, MFT Kraft
Tools: MFT Blueprints 29, Stitched Basic Edges, Lawn Fawn Slide on Over, Spritzer, Distress Sprayer
