I had a little more Halloween fun this week, playing with an idea that popped into my head as soon as I saw the new ODDBALL GHOST stamp. You see last year brought us the SQUIDGY GHOST stamp, and they seemed like a perfect pair to me! The bored/fatigued/so over it older sibling or parent and the excitable youngster off trick or treating.
I stamped with a light ink for the “no line” look and masked the images before inking the background using Distress Oxides. The images were coloured using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Sansodor blending solution. I added the sentiment that comes in the Oddball Mummy Girl stamp set, stamping it in Versamark ink and heat embossing using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
That’s it from me for today! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend.
In the new Holiday 2018 release there are a couple of new stamp sets that offer some great options for creating fun seasonal card designs. The FALL WINDOW STAMP SET and WINTER WINDOW STAMP SET both include two sizes of the same window design, and a sentiment to go with them. In the release samples we saw some beautiful card designs featuring the larger version of each as the main focal point.
The mini versions are great to use on smaller cards, on tags, or even better, to create scenes! Emily’s vision was that these stamps would work to set the scene for our character stamps, and today I’m here to show you how beautifully they work for this purpose. I opted to play with the Fall Window set, and an older but still utterly gorgeous character stamp – Tiny Townie Layla loves Leaves.
I’m a little nutty, so I decided to give myself an extra challenge and stamp my scene in a light ink to do some “no line” colouring. I also wanted to go for a more muted, storybook look, so I tried to create a softer look with my pencil colouring.
The sentiment I used comes with the new Oddball Scarecrow stamp set.
I coloured the scene using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and Sansodor blending solution.
I hope this has given you a little inspiration for using the new window stamp sets! Tell me – which other characters do you think would be perfect in a scene like this? Give me some suggestions for a scene using the Winter Window set!
Hey hey! Elaineabella here. As I prepare to get back into the swing of things, and bring you some more regular weekly posts here on the blog, I thought this would be a great time to create an updated list of all the Stamp It Saturday posts we’ve done so far. Hopefully you will find it a useful reference for posts you wanted to look back on, or perhaps you will spot some interesting posts that you missed! Read on for the list.
Today I’ve got a Copic colouring video to share for one of the Spring 2018 Stamping Bella stamp releases, and this time I thought it would be useful to add a voice-over chatting about how I approach colouring black and also pleats or folds. Read on to check out the card and my video!
This month I seem to be a little obsessed with both shaker cards and mermaids, so today I’ve got a card and video covering both bases!
I’ve got a fun under the sea themed card for you today, with a background created using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and an easily obtainable, inexpensive, household product – glycerine!
Happy Stamp it Saturday! I’ve got a fun card to share with you today. I’m a little obsessed with pop up cards at the moment, and I’m still very much back into my love of scene building. I’ve combined both on today’s card, and there’s a video to show you how it all came together!
Following on from Monday’s Distress Oxide Butterfly Wings post, I’ve been playing with gorgeous Tiny Townie Babette again, this time using alcohol inks to create some beautiful wings for her!
