A Little Gnomie Hello

TGIF!  Today I'm sharing another fun card creation featuring products from Stamp Anniething!

Today I'm using the adorable little "Jerome the Gnome" today and it's coordinating "Jerome the Gnome Outline Die".

I started by stamping all 3 of the stamp images using Memento "Desert Sand" ink.

The Copic Markers used:

  • Beard: W0-W4
  • Teals (snail/jacket): BG18, BG15, BG13, BG11
  • Reds: R37, R29, R27, R24
  • Skin: E55, E53, E01, YR000, R21
  • Trunk: E37, E35, E34, E33, E30
  • Grass: YG03, YG25, YG63
  • Belt/Shoes: W8, W6, W5

I airbrushed the back ground and then added the grasses over top.

The "Hello" is from the "Shaker Basics Hello Floral Tag Add On Die"...

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful and creative weekend!

Summer Splash ~ Waving Hello!


Happy Thursday!  Today over at StampNation we had the opportunity to participate in a fun Summer Splash Zoom call.

On the Zoom call we had a whole bunch of StampNation members just hanging out and some people were even creating along.

So over at SN, we've been celebrating our Summer Splash event with a new challenge every week.

There is still a couple of days to enter a card creation for week 5!  You could WIN a $25 gift certificate to the CP Shop!

While we were live, I pulled out the fun "Vitamin Sea" stamp set along with the "Refuse to Sink" and the "Hook, Line & Sinker" stamp sets too.

 I was trying to break out of my comfort zone and create with some of our new Spa ink collection from the "Apothecary" collection.  I also added in a few Spa blues too!

A few "Crate Lake Sequins" and my card was complete!

If you're not already a StampNation member, why not just try it out for one month and see if you like it!click below to check it out...

Hope to see you there!

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I'm sharing a fun-tastic card featuring products from Sweet Sentiment.

Today's card has our brand new "RAWR!" stamp set!  These adorable Dino and prehistoric girls are perfect for so many projects! They are the perfect size for so many things from your planner, to ATCs, to cards, to so much more!

I began my card by making a card base using the Sweet Sentiment Kraft Colring Paper.  I then laid down our new "Dino Tracks Mandala Stencil" and I used some Pearlescent White Embossing Paste from Dreamweaver across the stencil.  While the embossing paste was wet, I sprinkled on some Copper and Gold embossing powders so they shuck into the embossing paste.

I let the paste dry and then I applied heat to the card front to heat set the embossing powders.  I then splattered some white and gold paint from the "Starry Nights" palette from Gansai Tambi.

I stamped the word "RAWR" several times across the top of the kraft card base in Versamark ink and added Detailed Copper embossing powder and heat set that.

Next I stamped my T-Rex and single cave woman images from the "RAWR!" stamp set onto some Sweet Sentiment Premium Coloring Paper using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink.  This cardstock has SPARKLE to it!!! And it's awesome alcohol marker coloring paper.

Copics: Dino: YG25, YG223, YG03, YG01, YG00, G43, G24, YG67, Y17, Y13, Y02 skin: E44, E43, E42, R04, R20 hair: E49, E47, E44 outfit: E13, E15, E47

Next I coloring in both images using my Copic Markers.  I used a whole wack of green markers to color in that fun T-Rex!  I fussy cut out both images but there is an a Sweet Slices Die made to die cut out all the RAWR! images.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my card today!
