Hello and welcome!!!
I’ve popped in with a Halloween card featuring another new absolutely adorable stamp from Winslow & Rusty collection by Purple Onion Designs and illustrated by Julian Charlton.
The stamp set, used on today’s project, is called Winslow & Rusty – Halloween Friends! I decided to challenge a little myself and switched to color pencils. I started with Strathmore Toned Gray paper since I wanted to make the little ghost look transparent and the light gray background seemed to be a perfect base. I stamped the cute friends with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the whole scene with color pencils from Faber Castell (Polychromos line) and Prismacolors Premier brands.
Once finished with coloring I framed the card front with a faux stitched rectangle from SugarPea Designs Card Front Elements 3 SugarCut that covers perfectly an extended A2 size (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) card front. The sentiment was heat embossed on a stripe of an orange cardstock using a fine white embossing paste. I shaped the sentiment into a fish-tailed banner with my scissors and popped it underneath the colored friends. A matching bow and some hand drawn accents made with a white gel pen finished this simple card.
Hope you like the adorable Halloween stamp and my cute card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello and welcome!!!
This week I had a chance to play more with new amazing autumn collection of rubber stamps from Purple Onion Designs illustrated by very talented Julian Charlton.
My choice was the super adorable Winslow & Rusty – Campfire Friends stamp set that comes as a fabulous scene already arranged for you along with two fun matching sentiments. It was quite a while since I made a one layer wonder working with the masking technique. And since I have some time to spend in crafting, I decided to go with it! To start, I stamped twice first on Neenah Solar White paper and then on a piece of a masking paper Campfire Friends. I used the MISTI tool to assure a perfect crisp image and copic friendly Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I very carefully fussy cut with my sharp small scissors the masks that I needed to cover all the open areas on the Campfire Friends. Once the masks were applied, I inked the sky and ground portions around the critters working very slowly and using different sizes of the blending brushes. I started with a small brush and Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink around the fire, then added Wild Honey shade extending the inked circle. At this point I divided my background the sky and the ground with a piece of sticky tape and continued inking with Tumbled Glass, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch, Black Soot towards the top; Crushed Olive and Peeled Paint Distress inks towards the bottom of the card front. I added some splatters of a white gouache creating stars and a few tiny drops of pearlescent solution all across the inked area just for something little extra. Finally I carefully and slowly removed the masked and proceeded with copic coloring.
As always, I’m sharing with you the complete list of the markers used on this project: COPIC E30-E31-E33-E35-E37; E41-E44; Y00-Y11-Y15-Y17-Y21; YR30-YR21-YR15-YR04-YR68 plus E99; YG01-YG67-YG91-YG93-YG95-YG99; R20-R29-R35B91-BB93-B99; T1-T3-T5-T7;
I framed the colored scene with a die from Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Rectangles die set and added a simply stamped sentiment using again he MISTI tool and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I popped the piece on an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) and finished with a few highlights made with a white gel pen.
Hope you like the adorable new stamps and my cute card! As always thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy National Coffee Day!

to celebrate! You can visit all the Design Team Member’s blogs and leave comments for a chance to win! You can also visit the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog
today for another big blog hop
and a chance to win more prizes! They will also be posting inspiration over there all week long!
Here is what I created:
I played with amazing coffee themed products from the NND last release: Sip & Stories stamp and die sets plus Mugs stencil. To start, I used the coordinating Sip & Stories Die Set along with Copic X-Press paper to die cut all the shapes with Big Shot Die Cutting Machine. The coordinating Sip & Stories Die Set came really handy this time to achieve all the small pieces and saved me lots of time. I used the negative parts of the dies inside the stamping positioning tool to help me with the alignment during the stamping process. Memento Tuxedo Black ink was an obvious choice for the alcohol markers.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors used by me for coloring: COPIC MARKERS skin E0000-E00-E11; hair E50-E53-E55-E57; E; R20-R22-R24-R27-R46; YG21-YG01-YG23; G20-G24; Y11-Y15-Y17-Y21; YR21-YR12-YR14 B91-B93-B95-B99; RV00-RV02-RV04-RV21-RV25;V04-V06; BG10-BG23; T0-T3.
An extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) was masked with a strip of the sticky tape. I inked the top part of the card front through Mugs stencil with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink, then lift the stencil and added Antique Linen Distress ink across the whole area. I simply stamped the sentiment below the inked portion and started assembling all the elements together popping some colored stamps on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look. A generous coat of a clear shimmer pen and a few crystal clear sequins.

New Pumpkin Charm stamp is already arranged in the most adorable Halloween scene and it’s quite large to fill the card front of an extended A2 size card (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″). To start, I stamped on Strathmore Bristol paper the cute image with VersaFine Onyx Black ink since it’s waterproof. Next I fussy cut the whole scene, using a pair of sharp small scissors and leaving a little white edge around. I colored the stamp with water based markers, making the blending with a small waterbrush from Pentel.
The Halloween background was inked on a piece of watercolor cardstock from Tim Holtz. I used Seedless Preserve and Wilted Violet Distress inks along with the blending brushes and then applied a Spiderweb pattern through the stencil with a white embossing paste. I let the embossing paste air dry and meanwhile prepared a light gray card base that measures 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ plus an additional rectangle with a partially die cut circle inside. I simply stamped the Halloween sentiment that comes with Pumpkin Charm stamp on the white part of the card front and finally assembled all the elements with a bit of dimension.
As always, I’m leaving you the complete list of all the markers used on this project: TOMBOW N79, 025, 055, 062, 090, 133, 636, 703, 933, 946, 977; ZIG CLEAN COLOUR REAL BRUSH n.61 Light Brown.

There would be no perfect hop without prizes! Right?! SugarPea Designs are giving away TWO $25 Gift Certificates! So don’t miss a chance to win too!
On my stop for this hop I’m sharing some cuties from adorable Hey Fall stamp set. I looooove so much all the sweet critters from the set which are just perfect for scene building. To start, I made all the die cutting using the coordinating Hey Fall SugarCut. I worked on Neenah Solar White paper since it’s copic friendly and it’s also perfect as a card base. My MISTI tool came very handy for the stamping. I used the negative parts of the dies to help me with the alignment and managed to achieve all the elements in no time. I chose Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping the open images from Hey Fall stamp set since it’s meant to work with alcohol markers.
As always here’s the complete list of all the colors used here: COPIC E0000-E30-E31-E33-E37; E41-E44; YR000-YR00-YR02-YR12-YR14-YR21-YR24-YR30; V12-V15-V09; G20-G24-G28; W00-W1-W3; Y13-Y35-Y17; R12-R14-R27; B00-BG52; BV01 for shades.
The background was inked with Simon Says Stamp Twirling Tutu, Melon and Surf Blue inks. I used the blending brushes and a very light hand to achieve a soft and smooth result and then flicked a few tiny shimmer droplets just for something little extra. I popped the background piece on an extended A2 size white card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″), arranged all the colored stamps and finished with a a heat embossed sentiment and a few clear sparkling sequins.
That’s all for today!!! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
