Happy Haunting | Art Impressions Copic Coloring


Hey everyone! This week I'm working on a last few Halloween card ideas. I'm using the Happy Haunting stamp set with some Copics markers.


I used the Art Impressions Banner Double Stitch die to die cut a piece of Neenah 80lb card stock and also a purple plaid pattern paper. I used Gina K amlagam ink to stamp the haunted house on Neenah card stock. Then colored in with Copic Markers, the ones I used are listed below. Before coloring the ground I stamped the trees. For this I used Tombow marker and stamped the front trees with the full ink using a stamp platform. For the trees in the back I stamped off to get a lighter color. I also used a copic marker to color them in slightly and then colored in the ground. 


I adhered the banners together and also trimmed a piece of dark green cardstock and layered them all on to a A2 size card base. For the sentiment I used several from the Happy Hauntings stamp set and heat embossed those on two different tones of purple card stock. After trimming those with a paper cutter I attached them to the little haunted house scene. 


Copic Markers Used:
BG18, BG15, C1, C3, C5
Y21, E35, E43, YG67

Thanksgiving Circlet Tag | Art Impressions Challenge #268 Tags or Ornaments

Hey everyone! It's week two of the Art impressions Challenge #268 Ornaments or Tags and also the release of the NEW Circlet stamp and die sets! I'm using the Thanksgiving Circlet and creating a tag for the challenge!


I started off by stamping the three images from the Thanksgiving Circlet on to a piece of Neenah 80lb card stock. I also stamped the third image again on to Neenah Desert Storm 100lb card stock, this one I will set aside until later. I used Copic markers to color the images, I have the color names and numbers listed below. 


Once colored I used the coordinating dies to die cut the first and second Circlet images. Then I used a Art Impressions Circle Double Stitch Die on all three circlet images. The circle die is just a tad smaller then the images but I like the way this will sit on the kraft card stock. I used a larger circle die to die cut the kraft piece and also the Art Impressions Banner Double Stitch die on a piece of plaid pattern paper and Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock. 


Using my ATG I adhered the two banner die cuts together, this just gives the pattern paper more stability. Then I layered on the circlet images. I also used some Doodlebug Grosgrain ribbon (sorry discontinued) for the top of the tag and attached with the Tim Holtz tiny attacher stapler. 

Copic Markers used:
E77, E74, E51, E43, E35, E34, E31
Y38, Y35, Y26, Y23, Y21, Y18, Y13
YR27, R17, R14, R08, R05, R02
YG67, YG03, V20, V09, V06
C3, C1, W1

This tag would make a fantastic addition to a hostess gift or make a bunch of them and using them as place settings with guest names on the back! Thank you all so much for joining me today.

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop | Anything Goes


Hey everyone! Today is blog hop day for the Brutus Monroe Inspiration team. To start the hop from the beginning head to the Brutus Monroe Blog. Make sure to scroll down and visit everyone in the hop. Links to all products used located below. 


For this card I used the fabulous Brutus Monroe Winter Cabin paper pad. I started by layering the red and black diagonal plaid paper over top a Neenah solar white 110lb card base. Then I went through the paper pad and pulled out several more of the patterns to cut into strips, these are a 1/2 inch wide. I used my Atg to attach them to a scrap piece of Lunch bag card stock. 



I also used the Heat Resistant Vellum. This vellum is pretty cool! I was surprised at how much it didn't warp for out thin it is. I have another brand of vellum that is really thick and it warps under heat. Definitely a new favorite! Anyways, I heat embossed the Brutus Monroe vellum with the sentiment "Fall in Love from the Autumn Essentials stamp set, using Alabaster embossing powder. This is cut into a strip and secured with washi tape behind the Winter Cabin strip panel. I backed that with Neenah solar white 80lb cardstock and popped it on to the plaid card base. 



Then I used the larger maple leaf stamp, also from the Autumn Essentials stamp set. The leaf is heat embossed with Alabaster embossing powder on Brutus Monroe Lunch Bag card stock. I fussy cut the leaf then adhered that below the sentiment. I just got my order in containing the Glitter card stock freebie from a couple of Saturdays ago. I couldn't wait to use it! I thought glittery red hearts would work perfect for this card. The heart shape is from a Lawn Fawn die set. I like this heart size so I use this particular heart die a lot! 


Don't forget to continue on the hop and gives these creators some love!

Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Blog Hop | New September Paper Pads

Hey everyone!

Happy Brutus Monroe blog hop day! This week we are sharing products using the fabulous pattern paper pads that were released in September. To see the rest of the teams projects head to the bottom of this post. 
For my project I used the Jawbreaker and The Haunted Mansion paper pads. I started by stamping the Flower Doddles stamp, with Raven Detail Ink, on to a piece of the Jawbreaker paper. This paper pad has beautiful colors in it. I chose this particular one because I thought the colors would be light enough to see the out line of the Flower Doodles stamp set easily.


Since I'm going to fussy cut this out I didn't bother stamping the entire image of the Flower Doddles stamp set. Also, while fussy cutting, I cut off some of the smaller thinner details from the stamp, concentrating on they main floral images. To pair with my funky floral cut out I decided to use the skull pattern from The Haunted Mansion paper pad. I love the punky look of these two patterns paired together.


I'm also using the October Embossing Powder of the Month called Wicked. This is such a cool green color and I thought it would work well with the colors in the Jawbreaker paper pad. I used the Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and stamped the "Your're Awesome" from the Super Sentimental stamp set on to a piece of Neenah 80lb cardstock, which I die cut with a stitch circle die.


After the embossing everything else came together really quickly. I adhered the skull pattern paper to a A2 Neenah Solar White 110lb card base and then attached the Flower Doodles floral edge. I tucked the embossed sentiment circle in letting a few of the leaves overlap over top. For some final touches I used a white gel pen to add highlights and definition to the flowers.

That is it from me today! Thank you so much for joining me and don't forget to continue on to all design team blogs.

Love Your Face Halloween Card | Surface Sprays and Decofoil

Hello everyone! 
I've been playing with the Surface Sprays this week a lot. They create some really cool texture and I love how it looks like spray paint. While I was experimenting with these Surface Sprays I tested them on white card stock and shared on Instagram. I really like how these panels turned out and knew I had to use them for a project. 


Watch the card process video here or on Youtube


For this card I use the white card stock panel that was sprayed with Aubergine Surface Spray. I used a heart shaped die and a scallop heart die to die cut a piece of the Designer's Toner Sheets, I'm using the the spider web with the white background. After letting my laminator heat up I ran Orange Sketch foil and the die cut toner sheets through. My laminator is pretty old so I run it through several times. I let those cool for a moment before peeling off the foil sheet to reveal the foiled spider web heart.


Then I ink blended with Raven Detail ink and also stamped the sentiment and hat from the Trick or Treat stamp set with that same ink. I used a few copics to color in the hat.
Copics used are:
W6, W3
BG18, BG15
Y21



I also used the Brutus Monroe Fussy cut scissors to trim out the wtich's hat and the sentiment. I didn't really have a shape in mind when I cut the sentiment. I think it ended up looking like a ghost, kind of. 
I added some more orange to the Aubergine Surface Sprayed panel with the Jack-O-Lantern Surface Spray. Letting that dry before adding the foiled spider web heart and the sentiment to the panel. I used some foam adhesive to pop up the Witch's hat and also scattered some Acrylic bubbles around the heart. 
That is it for today! Thank you so much for joining me.
