    Trick or Treat

    Written by Kelli Cortes. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

    Hi, everyone!  Kelli here today with a Halloween card to share with you!  I’m so excited that it’s just about that time to start with the holiday cards.  My husband thought I was crazy for already making a Halloween card, but I couldn’t help myself!

    I made the background and grass using Tim Holtz – Distress Inks.  Almost all the distress inks I have are the minis.  I love how I can collect a lot more colors this way.  The moon (yes it looks like a sun, oops, lol) was done using Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade from Kit 1.  The background was done using Shaded Lilac from Kit 4, Dusty Concord from Kit 8, and Faded Jeans from Kit 5.  The grass was done using Crushed Olive from Kit 8 and Peeled Paint from Kit 5.

    I blended all the inks together using the Mini Ink Blending Tool.

    I wanted to give the background a starry look but I didn’t want it to be overwhelming so I made little dots using my Tim Holtz – Picket Fence Distress Marker.

    I cut the tree out of black card stock using the Paper Smooches – Seasonal Tree die set.

    The pumpkins are from the Lawn Fawn – So Thankful stamp set and were stamped in Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copics:
    YR18, YR16, YR14, YR12
    E27, E25, E23
    G28, G07, G03
    I cut them out using the matching So Thankful die set.

    The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn – Trick or Treat stamp set and is heat embossed in white onto some vellum.

    The card base was stamped using the Lawn Fawn – Woodgrain Backdrops stamp set.

    Everything was adhered using the Crafter’s Companion – Adhesive Runner, dimensional foam adhesive, and liquid glue.

    I finished everything off by adding some white gel pen stitch lines.

    Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

    Hi everyone Monica here today for my post I am sharing this counter top filer (at least in my opinion it is).  I found it at a consignment shop for 1.00 so I gave it a craft lift and now I will use it to hold my mail.  I used a soft pink paper and used a Some Odd Girl Stamp Hipster Mae on the front because she reminds me of how I feel on a daily basis.. always on the run with a coffee trying to get organized so there she shall sit on the front of my new mail organizer… lol

    Coloring With Hikka! Week 27

    Written by Hikka. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

    Just a quick scribble for you all, nothin’ fancy. Since the fancy stuff is due next time. (Hopefully third time will be the charm on the inkin’). So, probably not too big of an explanation here, but progress of course will be shown.

    So, here we go, drawn on Copic Sketchbook paper and inked with Pinkcool grayCobalt, and  purple multiliners in 3.0 while the wings were done with turquoise. And as always, colored with ShinHan Touch Twin Brush markers.

    Onto a bit of background, which I used Y37, Y45, and YR33.

     

    Onto the moon~! B66 and B262 were used, trying to go for a watery look here. Probably needs a little colorless blender and some copic white to help out. :P But we’ll get to that soon.

     

    Onto the unicorn~, the hooves and horn is BG1 and BG3 while the mane is P145, P146, and P83 and I used the horn coloring for shading as well. The wings were done with B171.

     

    The little dream cloud~! Which I’ve used RP137 and RP17 for the actual cloud while the milkshake was colored with RP9, R11, and BG1.

     

    And last but not least, a bit of Copic Opaque White for some shine.

    And that’s all for this week! Back onto that challenge, huuup~!
