Metal Love Card

One of the few remaining magazine devoted completely to rubber stamping is The Stamper’s Sampler. I recently posted a review of their latest Winter issue along with a card inspired by Tim Holtz, who is the featured artist. Click here to read my review over on Craft Gossip, including how to make my Tim inspired Valentine card, this is a great masculine style, perfect to give to the man in your life.

Here’s my second card entry for the C C Designs Summer contest. I used a mermaid and seal stamp set from Sweet November and some Astrobrights metallic papers for the backgrounds, her tail and the seal, they have a wonderful shimmer to them!

I’m Gearing Up!

Friday, September 21st, 2012

With the new Inkadinkado Stamping Gear tool. I recently did a review at Craft Gossip for this cool new stamping tool, click here to check it out.

Cutting Up

Monday, September 17th, 2012

Made some cute cards with my new Cricut Mini die cutting machine. I like this mini machine better than any of the other Cricuts I’ve tried. It hooks to your computer and it’s so much easier to see what you’re doing, change sizes and make adjustments on the computer screen.

I love this cool Bride of Frankenstein, she’s from the Movable Monsters collection.

Cricut Bride of Frankenstein Card

This cute owl come from the Create a Critter cartridge, it has such adorable animals and accessories to go with them.

Ooky Spooky

Monday, September 10th, 2012

Been playing around with more new Halloween stamps from Inkadinkado.

Voodoo Charms Necklace

I’m in love with the Voodoo Doll stamps, a cute witch and funky cat. I thought they’d make perfect shrink plastic charms so I stamped them on white shrink plastic using Staz-On ink, colored them with colored pencils, punched a hole for the jump rings and strung them on a chain. I also added a small domino with the word “Voodoo”.

Death Head Moth Collage

This Death Head Moth stamp is spooky but also seemed a little vintage to me, like an insect specimen so I made a collage with a vintage feel with it. It’s on layers of pattern paper embellished with vintage lace, a vintage button and a chipboard label with brads.

Sinister Trick or Treat Bag Card

This X-Ray of a Trick or Treat bag is just so evil! Along with the candy there is a razor blade in the apple, brass knuckles and a big knife. Probably not a stamp for everyone but I like twisted things so I think it’s really cool :) I added some poison labels cut from some pattern paper and added the color tinting with small sponges and ink.

Spending Time with Company

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

K and Company that is :) I recently got an amazing box full of goodies from K and Co. to review at Craft Gossip from their brand new “Beyond Postmarks” line. It’s got a bunch of cool cards and embellishments that move, pull out, pop up, etc. really cool.

Here are the cards I made, quick and easy but so fun.

Roses Cards

Cheers Cards

Pop Up Cards

Fold Out and Spin Cards

I think the rabbit pulled out of the hat is my fave :)

Halloween Night

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

This week over on Craft Gossip I did a review of Pentel art supplies.I really liked everything I tried especially the tube watercolors and the Hybrid technica pen. I used them to make a primitive witch collage for Halloween. I drew her in pencil on watercolor paper, used a Pentel water brush and watercolors to color her in then went over my pencil lines with the Hybrid pen, her hair was done with their Pocket Brush pen. I cut her dress, mask and hat from pattern paper.

Primitive Witch Collage

I also used some of their gel pens and markers for a couple of cards.
This card uses stamps from Lawn Fawn colored with markers.

Gnome Home Card

These stamps are from Inkadinkado and colored with gel pens.

Bugs Card
