Friends on Film

Who doesn’t enjoy seeing some cute animals playing in the Autumn foliage? The concept for this card stirred up past Autumn memories, a time spent in rural Wisconsin watching the animals play in the fall leaves from the kitchen window. Ahhhh. Nostalgia!! ๐Ÿ˜ŠThis mixed media card was inspired by all the Autumn card challenges that have been posted lately. Crafty Cards by Heidi on Instagram had a great influence on the layout. I love following her!! Check her out!. All the stamps and dies are from Lawn Fawn: Snow Day, Winter Fox, Joy to the Woods, Oh Gnome!, Magic Iris Camera Add-on, and Magic Iriis Camera Pull-tab Add-on. The trees were stamped in Distressed Oxide. Iced Spruce and Speckled Egg. The other images were stamped with Memento Black ink and some simple Copic Coloring.

Have a crafty week, y’all!

Happy Anniversary

A small collaboration project that DD14 and I created. She loved this stamp from DDD(retired) and wanted to make a background to match. She had no idea what to do with the two, that’s where I helped. I added a sentiment and a coordinating layer to finish the card. Her coloring was done with Copic Markers and Prismacolor pencils. The background is Black Soot and Seedless Preserves. I hope you enjoy!

Have a fabulous week, y’all!

Fall Friends

Fall is officially here! In Texas, that means the weather is cool enough for long bike rides and picnics with friends (pre COVID19 that is). This scene card was created by DD14, inspired by The Card Concept #140 and it’s multitude of colors. She used Lawn Fawn’s Bicycle Built For You, Screen Time, Hey Lady, A Bug Deal and Holiday Helpers. She used Distressed Oxide and Copic Markers for the background. The images were stamped in Ink On 3 Disappearing Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I think she did a fantastic job, however, I’m biased. ๐Ÿ˜

Have a Fabulous week y’all!

Cold Weather

This mixed-media card was inspired by the current Colorthowdown challenge with a little help from Jennifer McGuire. I adventured into a new technique with this challenge. I used an embossing folder, cream cardstock and brown Memento ink for the background. I then stamped a few birds in red and orange Hero Arts inks along with an orange sentiment from Newton’s Nook. I popped the background on some foam as I find embossed backgrounds easier to glue this way. Super fast and simple to make.

Have a great week, y’all!

Queen of Hearts

“We’re painting the roses red.” Or the hearts in this case. I love, love, love this version of the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. The Oddball series from Stampingbella is adorable in such a quirky way. The Queen was stamped with Memento Black ink on some Expressit card stock. The hearts are a simple stamp that was stamped with a red Hero Arts ink. The alcohol markers used were from a $8 set I bought on Amazon. Honestly, they worked as well in my hands as the Copic markers. But for $8? I can easily recommend these to friends that have smaller children and not break the budget or worry that they are not taken care of properly. Have a happy hump day everyone!

“Y’all stay safe now, ya hear?”
