I have a few pumpkin cards for you today...I can't tell you the company of this pumpkin because I stamped it years ago on some glossy paper that I was playing with ink on. It's not quite polished stone...but I did apply the ink to the glossy cardstock...but it looks like no alcohol. I stamped the pumpkins on the inked paper with Stazon ink.
The papers are from my stash...they were part of a kit from the first design team I was ever on...I depleted the scraps from that file a bit more with these fun fall cards!
Loving this cute little card that features Inky Antics images based on Kraft cardstock. I added a touch of doodling with a white gel pen and used some scraps from my embossing bin to make up a really cute little winter greeting card!
Here is another sweet and simple winter greeting. Circle punches popped up on foam add a fun border detail.
And finally a jingle bell that is on a sparkly embossed panel with lace and snowflakes and Candi...let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
I have another card featuring The Rubber Cafe's Christmas Behind the Scenes Creative Kit!
For this card I used some more holly embellishments from the batch I did up last week. Don't they make fabulous photo corners for the card?
The stamp is in the Elf'n Around stamp set that is included in the kit. I did a slight modification and only stamped the top two elves on the image. I stamped my sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and tore the top edge to resemble snow. I colored my image with Copic markers and stuck them in the snowbank!
The adorable bows are part of the kit and I added one to the mistletoe and two to elements I cut out from the designer paper pad included in the kit. They look like gifts!
Today my cards are featured on the Inky Antics blog. Here is Jackie's post:
When I demo the colored pencil blending technique
at shows, I often tell people about how I like to use two or three
different shades of the same color (applying and then blending each
color separately) because it adds depth and richness to the stamped
Starting with an alcohol marker base and then layering colored pencil
over the top can achieve a similar, lovely effect, as shown in this week's card on the main Inky website:
Michelle Pearson created a bunch of Halloween treats using this trick!
You can see how she starts with her stamped images (four pumpkin kitties
from Cube-0207, Cat 'n Jack Cube) and colors it with Copic markers:
Then she layers colored pencils on top, which makes a huge difference in the images' appearance:
Here's one of those mischievous kitties shown on an altered notepad, also colored using the same technique:
And, just for fun, she used a darker palette of colored pencils over the
Copic base, layered onto a Zentangled panel on the final project:
In case you're wondering, Michelle used Copic markers B60, C1, T4, Y38,
Y17, E00, YG03, along with a variety of Prismacolor pencils for her
frightfully fun cards.
I got a request for some princess birthday cards...and I ran off to Mo's Digital Pencil and snagged the Birthday Princess for the cards. The princesses are twin girls...and we have one in pink and another in purple!
We have flowers and glitter and gems and cupcakes and crowns...what more could a princess ask for? Images were colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and popped up on foam tape. The frame is by Memory Box.
