Sneak Peek Revealed!

I had so much fun making these cards.  When I first got the stamp, I have to admit, I was a little disappointed.  I was really, really hoping for a witch.  But, then I stamped with her.  Oh, how I love her!!  So on to my cards!
This is my first one I did.  I used the orange tissue paper that the Halloween Kit from Kraftin Kimmie wrapped everything in.  The sayings, papers and twine were also in the kit. I wanted to use original Halloween colors on her.  I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers....around my 5th time using them.
Here was my second go of her.
 This little black bag she is on top of came in the kit holding the twine and sequins.
She's cute huh!
My third one... reversal of colors, and white skin....
 Those orange flat marble dots came in the kit also.  These guys are also colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  I used my new Stampin UP! Punch to do the saying with.

And, my final card, well, she begged doing in Pink....

Yes Pink.  These papers were from my stash, but the dots were in the kit as well as the green doily.  Hope that you enjoyed what I did with her, as I know I did!!
You can pick her up at the KKS shop.  Jump on over!

Sneak Peek!!

Hello!!  Today I am doing something fun!!  I get to do a surprise peek of an upcoming stamp for Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!  The artist is Annie Rodrigue so I am sure that you will all love it!!  I made several different cards with it, and here is a sneak at 2 of them! The stamp set is called Grim Gretchen!
 I got mine from a kit I ordered over at KKS and everything you see in the cards I made, came from the kit.  I colored her up with Spectrum Noir markers.  I am new at them, so just learning!
 Here is a close up of her in purples and greys.

Hope you like!

First Day of School, Fair and Painted Harvest Stampin Up!

Hello!  So, some things to share, first off, my youngest is a big senior this year.  He has had a few rough years and so this year, when he got up on his own, showered, made breakfast and came and got me for pictures, I was really surprised, completely happy though!!  So here he is...
 This is his truck, that is named Tank.  He just got glasses and is happy about it.  Something about being able to finally see the board... :)

Then, we went to the fair this Labor Day.  I have a thing for fairs.  I love them, they are much better than Christmas ever thought of being.  My favorite thing is the pigs.  (then the goats and the pumpkins, and the canning, and art and....)  So here is a few piggies for you!
 Pig snoopies are the best.  I rubbed at least 12 of them!!!
 Baby piglets!!  They were not there the whole fair, so I was luck to see them!
 Nice tusks on this one!
 Then I got a new stamp set from Stampin Up!  It is Painted Harvest.  I love sunflowers and so, well...
These color combos were pretty cool, Peakaboo peach and cherry cobbler, crushed curry and cherry cobbler, calypso coral and cherry cobbler and then crushed curry and calypso coral.
 I used their little pizza box, and used Tim Holtz Distressed Oxide inks and sponged it and then clear embossed on it.  This sunflower was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.  Leaves are Wasabi.

 Inside I did the same and made 6 little cards with envelopes.
But I really liked this card... I found it on Pintrest here.... I changed the colors around and did a little of my own thing and I think it turned out pretty good.
I used Calypso Coral and then Cherry Cobbler, then I stamped a second time over it with the Calypso.  I used Old Olive and Lemon Lime twist for the leaves and Soft Suede for the saying and centers.

Hope you like!
