E04 E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11
E29 E25 E23 E21

Petunia Has a Party, 7 Kids College Fund

Happy Tuesday stamping friends!! I've been playing with some 7 Kids supplies again and thought I would share.
This card uses a Stamping Bella stamp called Petunia Has a Party.  I just have to tell you, these piggy stamps are not the type I am normally drawn to but I am SO hooked! You've got to give them a try!


I colored my image with Copics, including the background but the ink is applied with a water brush filled with 70% alcohol there.  Here are the combos I used: 
pig: E71 E70 R02 R12 R00
birds: E33 Y26 Y23 YR18 YR14
red: R59 R29 R27 R24 R22
purple: V09 V06 V12 V01 V000
background: BG18 YG99
For a tutorial on this background technique click HERE.



The stamp also comes with a cute little sentiment and I put it on the inside of my card this time.

Rory, C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps


Good morning crafty peeps!!  I've whipped up another halloween card, this time with the new Pollycraft Rory from this months release.
I wanted to do something a little different with him.  I had intended an all black and white card but when I got down to it I just couldn't seem to make it feel right.


The webs from the new Make a Card #8 die are a must have for any halloween card.  I've used it over and over the past few weeks.  It's just the perfect addition.  Rory is colored in Copics, I used my neutral grays.



Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit and feel inspired to get your craft on.

Fairy Twila, C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps

Good morning crafty friends!!  Happy Monday.  The kids are off for their first day of school and the silence is almost deafening! They weren't gone more than five minutes before I was pulling out my Copics. LOL

My card for you today uses the new Fairy Twila from the August release.  This stamp is too cute and so versatile too.  I've been in the mood for fall cards lately and thought she made a great pumpkin patch fairy.


I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copics.  Here are the combos I used: 
skin: E11 E21 E00 E000 R20 R11
hair: E77 E57 E35 E33 E31
green: YG99 YG95 YG93 YG91
orange: E08 YR27 YR68 YR14
yellow: Y35 Y15 Y00
purple: V95 V93 V91
wings: C3 C1 Blender, Silver Shake Pen


I've used a couple of the dies in the Make a Card #8 Halloween die but also a few dies from last years releases.  My sentiment is from the Meoples Hallo-weenies rubber stamp set.  I used just a couple of the bats from the Bat Background stamp instead of using it as a background.


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you enjoyed your visit!  Maybe with the kids going back to school we will all be able to find a little extra crafty time.
