"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!"


That line was in my head as soon as I finished this card! 😂


Anywhoo...


My original idea for this project was to create an interactive card using this new, absolutely adorable, pumpkin digital stamp from Not 2 Shabby. However, once I had the pumpkin all colored up, I really liked how it looked. So instead, I decided to use some Copic markers and distress inks to add a background.


*I thought I should mention that I had altered the image slightly to use with my first card idea and so it does not look exactly like the digital stamp in the Not 2 Shabby shop. (Actual image shown below)


For my card, I started by sizing the image pretty large, onto an A2 sized panel. After printing onto a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock, I colored in the pumpkin with Copic markers.


That is when I decided to mask off a moon shape and a hill using masking paper and grabbed some inks. I used wilted violet, dusty concord, blueprint sketch and black soot distress inks with a blending brush to create the background.


After my sky was blended I used my heat tool to speed up the drying process. Next, I used some more Copic markers to color in the grassy hill and add texture to the moon.


The next step includes, what my lovely friend Marie, from Thoughtful Studio, has coined "The Stardust Technique." I take a white gel pen and add a "dusting" of tiny white dots in areas where light would generally hit. Almost like taking a handful of sparkles and blowing them across the page. 😊✨


I added tiny white dots onto the grass and the pumpkin and larger more dispersed dots in the sky to create stars.


Then, I popped the whole panel onto an A2 110 lb. white card base using liquid adhesive.

Hiya!


I'm sharing my latest project using a digi stamp from Kinda Cute. Today's card is using this sweet dragon with a cupcake, which I thought would go great on a birthday card.


I wanted the dragon to be the star of the show, so I sized him pretty big in Procreate so that he would take up the majority of an A2 card front.


After I had the image a size I liked, I printed it onto a piece of 80 lb. Neenah card stock. I used Copic markers to color the image and then fussy cut it out. I also went along the edges with a black Memento marker.


Then, I went back and added some dots with a dark green Copic and white gel pen to give him some extra texture.


For the patterned card stock, I used an old paper pad from The Paper Studio, from Hobby Lobby. I used stitched rectangle dies and a circle die to cut out some different patterns from the collection.


I used a Happy Birthday die from Lawn Fawn to cut out the sentiment from a piece of white card stock. Then I layered all of my pieces and attached them with some Tombow mono liquid glue.


To finish off the card, I made a white card base from 110 lb. card stock and attached the front panel.


I really love how this card turned out! He's such a happy guy and the bright colors are really fun! 😀😄

Hello!


I hope everyone has been doing well. :) I have been catching up on some much needed rest lately, but I was excited to get back into the swing of things; hehe, crafting that is!


And what a fun way to do so with some adorable Lawn Fawn images!


I have been addicted to slimlines lately and just picture every scene on that stretched layout. I think it's so fun and you can fit more images on one card, which is what I did for this one.




To start, I stamped out several images from the new Ocean Shell-fie stamp set onto a piece of Strathmore 140 lb. cardstock. I also used Versafine Clair black ink as I planned to watercolor the images. I should have used my heat tool on the images before coloring because I definitely smeared them, but that's what fussy cutting is for! 😆


Once everything was stamped, I used my Zig real brush markers to fill in the images. At first, I just used the markers without any water because I wanted to keep everything vibrant. I attempted to used two and three color blends like I would with Copics, but ran into a bit of an issue.


The darker pigments were very dark and I didn't leave enough room within the image to fully blend them out as much as I would've liked. So, I brought in a paintbrush and water to pick up some of the color and dabbed it away with a paper towel to get back some light areas.


From there, I blended the rest of the colors out with water and built up the darker colors slower so that they didn't take over the image.


I used an embossing stylus to add white highlights using white acrylic paint and then fussy cut the images. I also traced along the edges with a black water based brush marker.


For the background, I used a piece of bristol smooth cardstock and distress oxides in the colors peacock feathers, salty ocean, and faded jeans. I used blending brushes to blend the ink across the cardstock and then used my heat tool to speed up the drying time.


I used the same cardstock along with brushed corduroy, gathered twigs, and ground espesso oxides to blend the piece I planned to use for the sand. I also splattered some black soot across the brown piece to add some texture.


To cut the two pieces out, I used Lawn Fawn's large stitched slimline die and a stitched hillside border die and ran the inked panels through my Big Kick. Once I had the card front panel, I decided to spritz it with my distress sprayer and then started to lay out the scene.


Before I glued down all the pieces, I grabbed a couple more Lawn Fawn stamp sets to make up my sentiment. I used Fintastic from Keep on Swimming, #SELFIE from Wild About You and Smile! from Ocean Shell-fie. I stamped them all a few times with Versamark ink on black card stock with white detail embossing powder. I heat set them with my heat tool and trimmed them down.


I then glued everything into place and added some, I'm not quite sure how to describe them, foggy white enamel dots I made using Perler beads, to look like bubbles.


For the final step, I used liquid adhesive to glue the main panel onto a 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" 110 lb. card base.


I am so happy with how this under water photo shoot scene turned out. 😄 I can't believe I tried to convince myself I didn't need this set! 😆
