YOU'RE THE SWEETEST (5)

HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN, WISHING YOU A TREAT-FILLED DAY (1)

For the ones thinking it's too early for Halloween card, look away. I can't wait for the fall to start and to create more Halloween cards. I just love making these cards. And I just needed a reason to use the Happy Howloween stamp set from Lawn Fawn.


First, I die cut all the elements for the scene. I took Black Licorice cardstock to die cut from, using the Village Border die. From Sticky Note cardstock, I die cut the little lights that go behind each window ( which I hate doing, it's so tiny). I also used the Grassy Border die and the Leafy Tree Backdrop: Landscape die. I only cut off the three, not using the frame.


I ink blended the sky with Distress Oxide Inks, using Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch. For the grass I used Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. For the tree I used regular Distress Inks, being Ground Espresso and Brushed Corduroy.

I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markes. Here are the colors I used:
Dogs: E53 - E55 - E57
Pumpkins: YR04 - YR07/ YG13 - G17
Superhero costume: R17 - R46
Hotdog costume: E25 - E29/ E08 - E18/ Y15 - YR23
Bones: E41 - E43
Bowl: BG15 - BG18


I fussy cut the images and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment and added some hightlights and dots to the images, using a white gelly roll pen. I adhered the panel onto a Chili Pepper cardbase.


Do you still think it's too early? These images are too adorable, so I just couldn't help myself.

IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY, ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS (5)

For this birthday scene, I used the Village Shops stamp set, together with the little critters from Coaster Critters. Both sets are from Lawn Fawn.


I started by die cutting all the scene elements. I used the Grassy Border die and the Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. I ink blended all the scene elements with Distress Inks. For the sky I used Salty Ocean, for the grass border Twisted Citron and for the grassy hill I used a combination of Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron.


I die cut a road, with the Road Border die. I used Black Licorice cardstock and regular white cardstock for the back. This was the first time that I used this die.


I stamped the images and colored them with Copic Markers. Here are the colors I used (the toasstools are from the Critters in te Forest stamp set):
Shops + Ice cream truck: E53 - E55/ R81 - R83/ Y11 = Y06/ B00 - B12/ R22 - R35/ C0
Bench: E53 - E55 - E57
Sign: C0 - C3/ R22 - R35
Bunny: C0 - C3
Bear: E000 - E11/ B00 - B12
Fox: E08 - E18/ E000 - E11
Tadstools: R22 - R35/ C0 - C3


I fussy cut the images and assembled the card. I stamped the sentiment and added some highlights and dots to the images, with a white gelly roll pen. For the roof on the left shop, I added more details. I did this because I had smooshed some black ink onto it, with my inky fingers. I tried to cover it up with the gelly roll pen.

I added the panel onto a Ballet Slippers cardbase.
