Whimsy Stamps "Rory"

And here I am with my last card, guest designing for Whimsy Stamps.  When I first saw this cute little image I had to giggle as his name is "Rory" but seeing him in this little dinosaur costume made me instantly think "RAAWRY!!!".  😂😂😂

I colored this little guy using my copics but the dots are some white gouache and a flower shaping tool.  I used distress oxides for my background and then splattered it with the gouache as well.

I cut a Magnolia tree die with glitter paper then added some super cute Lawn Fawn ghosts.  I also covered the tree with some of that cobweb you can buy at the dollar store.  The ladder is also from Magnolia and both were from the same doohickey kit.

And this cute little treat bag was the perfect finishing touch from my stash.  AND YAY!!  The stash bin pays off again!!  LOL!

I hope you've enjoyed this card as well and if you still haven't gotten a chance, check out Whimsy's new releases.  There's something there for everyone!!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Lawn Fawn Thanks A Latte

I'm back with a couple of Lawn Fawn cards using the "Thanks A Latte" set.  Sooo cute but I will tell you one thing, I didn't buy the dies for this set only because they weren't available at the time I purchased the stamps but HUGE REGRETS!!   So I will be on the search for those soon.  I cut every little piece on each card so ya, there goes an hour of time I'm sure.  LOL!!  

For both cards I used Lawn Fawn's "Fall Fling" 6" x 6" paper pack.  Soooooo adorable!!  On this card I used Lawn Fawn's "Reverse Stiched Scalloped Square Windows" to help layer up the card.  I distressed my background using carved pumpkin, ripe persimmon and rusty hinge oxides.

And on both cards I've also used Lawn Fawn's "glitter pen".  It's soooo soft but really pretty up close. 

 It's National Card Making Day so I hope you're in your craft rooms or better yet at some fun crop or something.  Enjoy!

Polkadoodles "Merry & Bright"

How would you like to view a video on hair colored with Copics?  😀   I've created a video for you below and done a bit of a post on how I created this card so ENJOY!

Isn't this super duper cute?!!  I LOVE that I'm creating xmas cards IN SEPTEMBER!!  There was a time when companies didn't get their xmas stuff going until November.  Well by then, in order to get all your xmas cards out you'd have to copy just 1 design.  NO!  I CAN'T DO IT!!  Mine are all different - ya crazy I know!!!  LOL!!  So for this card I've combined papers from two amazing paper packs - "Gnome for Christmas" and "Gnome Season" available at your Polkadoodles stockists.  

Here are all my pieces cut and ready to be assembled.  For this kind of card, I felt like it was obvious that this would be an outdoor scene so I needed some trees and used the "Layering Trees" die set and cut from the same papers I used to layer my card.  It's nice to use design paper that adds some extra subtle depth to the card.  I didn't want your focus point to be on my trees instead of my image.

For one of my layers I'ved used Posydoodles Circles, one of my personal favorite PD dies.  Next it was time to assemble my layering and begin with my embellishements.  Normally I always add some kind of bouquet of flowers.  I mean c'mon, how can you not?  LOL!  😆

HERE SHE IS!!  This image is called "Merry & Bright" from the new Winnie Winter Wishes collection.  Have you seen the new images?  OMG SO CUTE!!  I've colored this whole image using my copics and even added some glitter to the snow.  I love that these papers have these blue colors in them because it gives me so much more to play with, color-wise, when I'm coloring and trying to embellish.

Aren't these reindeer cute?!  They're from a fun mix of laser cut paper embellishments along with some snowmen, christmas candies, winter trees, snowflakes, christmas baubles and more.  Check the stockist list on the website so you can find out where to get this super cute image and more!!!

Oooooo I almost forgot!!!  MY VIDEO

Are you as excited about Christmas card making as I am?  They're my absolute favorite cards to make with Halloween being a close 2nd.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
