Stamp AnnieThing September Release: Day 3


Hi and welcome to Day #2 of 
Stamp Anniething's September release!  

We got some really fun new Chibi Kids to share with you today!


Arrgh, its a pirate!

Julie is available RIGHT NOW, along with all the other stamps from earlier this week!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

So here is my card using Julie.
What a cute little pirate! She's not stealing gold from
anyone anytime soon. haha
She's perfect for Halloween cards, birthday cards... or just a Hello card!
Did you know that in September there is a 
Talk like a Pirate Day? LOL 
I found this link a long time ago and I just thought about it now.

I stamped Pirate Julie then masked her to stamp
the Magnolia Ocean Scene Background on top.
Then proceeded with coloring with Copic markers. 
I left the card without a sentiment because I 
don't know or don't have a person in mind for the card yet. 

Her hair is E19, E15, E08, E99 and YR24
skin is BV11, E0000, E000, E21, R21, R20 and R30
The reds in her clothing are E35, E46 and E89
the waist sash is colored with the same colors as the sand just added one more color
and varied the intensity Y28, Y23, E21 and E28


The sky is B00 and B000
the clouds are C5 diluted with the 0 Blender pen on the cap
The ocean is just one color: B24
The ship/boat is E37 and the sails are E43 then dabbed with the 0 Blender pen 
the sand was done with Y28, Y23 and E84 for the shaddows


For the Macaw I used:
R24, R46, R89, Y17, G05 and B24


Here is a close up of Pirate Julie and her Macaw.

I hope you enjoyed our September peeks so far!
See you tomorrow!
 Have a great day!

Thank you so much,

Stamp AnnieThing September Release: Day 2



Hi and welcome to Day #2 of 
Stamp Anniething's September release!  

We got some really fun new Chibi Kids to share with you today!




Little Paige wants to dance into your heart!


Paige will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show  you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Hi Everyone! For today's preview I decided to 
make my ballerina a Sugar Plum Fairy. 
When I was in elementary I took ballet for about 2 years
But I was totally fascinated by ballet when
I went to a San Francisco ballet company presenting 
The Nutcracker. I saw it once again at UC Berkeley and
I was just as fascinated by the presentation.

I have this 8x8 Graphic 45 paper pad called
The Nutcracker Sweet
And it was perfect for Page as a ballerina.

I had so much fun coloring her! She looks so sweet
plus it's sort of a Winter or Christmas card...
So yay! Got one out the way. LOL 
Not really just goes into my card stash until 
I need one for emergencies. ha!


I hope you enjoyed our September peeks so far!
See you tomorrow!
 Have a great day!

Stamp AnnieThing September Release: Day 1



Hi and welcome to Day #1 of 
Stamp Anniething's September release!  

We got some really fun new Chibi Kids to share with you today!




Nurse Holly wants you to Cheer up!

Holly will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show  you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Here is my card using Nurse Holly 
only I didn't  use the nurse hat this time. 
I decided to just leave her as a little chibi girl with her Teddy Bear.
I colored my image with Copic markers
E11, B34, E57, E34, R22 and R20
R85, R83and RV95
E34, E37, E39 and Blender Pen 0
The papers are from 
Kaiser Craft called Summer Breeze
Dies are from Our Daily Bread Designs custom dies
as well as Desert Craftin Divas

Here is a close-up
I read some where that September 9th is  National Teddy Bear Day
because in 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear cub
while hunting in Mississippi. 
the drawing about was created by Clifford Berryman
who published a cartoon of the incident in the 
Washington Post on Nov. 16th, 1902

I tried looking around but there were different dates for the
Teddy Bear Day... I wanted to share because I thought
it was a cute story behind the Teddy Bear. :)


I hope you enjoyed our September peeks so far!
See you tomorrow!
 Have a great day!

Thank you,

So here we go for August'sTheme Week!
Make ANY project that was inspired by a movie, character, song, brand, etc!
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
For this card I pieced three different stamps to make Harley Quinn
 Trudy- Birdcage,  Chloe - Stay Cool and Jemma - Happy Easter
I watched Suicide Squad and and I kept listening to some of the songs
even other songs that are related but not on the Soundtrack that
are most likely something Harley Quinn would sing or relating to her
character. I guess I got a little bit crazy with it.

I used Trudy- Birdcage's head and hair,
 Chloe - Stay Cool for her shorts and legs and then I used 
Jemma - Happy Easter for her little jacket.
I had so much creating this card.
The background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder
and I distressed it and doodled a little.
The Smile die is from The Greeting Farm
It was so much fun creating this card. 

Hope you will play along with us in our Monthly Theme Week! You can see and post all your projects in our Facebook Group HERE



I hope liked my project for today and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Do you believe in fairies?

Good morning Crafty peeps!

Today I have a fairy card for you all today. I used Kelsey - Believe from Stamp AnnieThing.

So I wanted to create a simple background scene for my fairy. I only used Copic markers except for a few details such as the eye lights, on the powder of the mushroom and on baby's breath of her flower crown-- for that I used a white Uni-ball Signo Angelic White pen and for the eyelashes and iris
I use a Copic Multiliner - black. 

Purples used: BV0000, BV000, BV02, BV31 and V0000
Yellows: Y02, Y11 and Y21, Y26, Y35 
Earth/Browns: E0000, E000, E01, E21, E25, E26, 
E31, E33, E34, E35, E55, E84, E87
Greens: G94, YG63, YG95 

I was going to make the eyes green and realized the last
time I colored this stamp I colored her as a blonde
with green eyes... so I colored purple
but as I was finishing I was thinking I should of stayed
coloring them green or maybe even purple.
I tried to cover up the blue with a hight purple but you can't even tell. 
Oh well maybe next time. I guess I have Tinkerbell on the mind 
haha. 

Here is a close up and you can really see
the "powder" effect with the white pen on the 
mushroom and I love how the baby's breath looks on
her flower crown to clean up and finish up 
uncolored areas.

I hope you liked the card. 

Have a fantastic day!

Hello Kitty Birthday with Megan

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a birthday card for you using Megan Glass.  
I had great feedback when I made another birthday card with Megan - Cupcake 
because I colored her hair with braids. Takes a while to create the braids
but so worth when you're done.

So here I used Megan Glass

I colored her with Copic markers.
I used:
skin: E11, B34, E37, E34, R22 and R30
hair: W9 and W5
Reds: R24 and R46
Blues: B21, B45 and B97
boots: W9, W7, W5 and W3
leggings: N0 and N2

The background paper is called Hello Kitty Ribbons
and it was a 12x12 sheet I got from Michael's open stock papers.
I fussy cut a Hello Kitty Head from the same paper 
and popped it up so it can look like a balloon.
The yellow dotted paper is from Echo Park and it's called
 Birthday Wishes

the small HB2U and balloon string dies 
are from CC Designs.

Here is a close up.

I hope you liked it.

Thank you for stopping by.

Roaring Twenties Tiana

Hi there!


I made this card using one of the newest stamps from Stamp AnnieThing called

I colored her with Copic markers
and with the intention of looking like Tiana from 
The Princess and the Frog.
The skin colors are: B24, E11, E35, E23, R22 and R30.
For the Hair I used C9, C7 and C5...  I used that C9
so much that it was too sticky... good thing I have replacement nibs
and a refill because the alcohol did not help with bad it colored.
Oh yeah and the dress I used YG00, YG05, YG06 and YG07 (YG07 
always gives me big blobs of ink :[ I'm going to to have to stop being a cheap-o
and just change that nib too)
My desk is so cluttered that I keep trying new colors out because I can't
find my other markers... well I like trying new colors but part of it
is because my desk is so messy. LOL Creative Explosion happens I guess....
The paper is from Die Cuts With a View and it's called The Magnolia Way
and I thought it was perfect to go with "Tiana." 
The dies are from Craftin' Desert Divas and 
from My Creative Time. I fussy cut the image and used C9 all around to get rid of 
the white showing from the edges of the paper and then
added a little bit of Wink of Stella to her hair band and dress band
when it was glued down. The I decided to use the sentiment
that comes with this stamp that says: Roarin' Fun
but I accidentally used my Memento Black ink
and realized this will not work with that paper so before it smeared
I tried to rescue it with embossing and then realized that it was frantage
as I embossed it. LOL    It looks nicer in person but I may die
cut a little piece of paper and just glue on top... not sure yet.  teeheehee.

So the last card I made with this stamp I kept thinking of
Charlotte La Bouff aka Lottie which is Tiana's best friend...
you can see it here with the August 2016 release and I also 
colored Paige as Princess Tiana over here with the February 2016 release.
I have so much fun coloring the Chibi Kids as popular characters
especially when I make cards for my kids, teachers, family and friends.

That's about it for this card.

I hope you got a chance to buy and play with a 
few of these cuties. 

Have a great day.

Stamp AnnieThing August Previews Day 3





Hi and welcome to Day #1 of 
Stamp Anniething's August release!  
Let's do a sort of TIME warp dance with this release!


Rip Roarin' 20's fun Lucille!

Lucille is available in the store TODAY along with the other 2 stamps we showed  you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Lucille is one of my absolute favorite images to color;
I just love her curls. 
I colored her with Copic markers and did the No Lines Coloring Technique.


Here is a close-up of the image and you can see
where I added a little bit of Wink of Stella to add some sparkle to 
the waist band and the feather and headband.

I hope you enjoyed our August peeks so far!
 Have a great day!

Thank you for visiting.

Stamp AnnieThing August Previews Day 2





Hi and welcome to Day #2 of 
Stamp Anniething's August release!  

Let's do a sort of TIME warp dance with this release!


Poodle skirt loving, 50's Jessica!

Jessica will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show  you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

This is my take on Jessica 
I colored her up with Copic markers.
I kept her simple and just stamped her with black ink
which takes less time than the No Lines Coloring technique.
The checkered floor looks a little wonky
because I just hand few without using a ruler. LOL 
(Whoops! But for some reason it doesn't really bother me)
All of the dies are different sets from My Creative Time.
I chose yellow because it symbolizes the state of being happy. 

Here is a close-up of the image all colored up. 

I hope you enjoyed our August peeks so far!
 Have a great day!

Thank you for stopping by.

Stamp AnnieThing August Previews Day 1 - Tess



Hi and welcome to Day #1 of 
Stamp Anniething's August release!  

Let's do a sort of TIME warp dance with this release!

Meet 80s punk rocking Tess!!

Tess will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show  you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Here is my card using the rocking Tess!
I colored the entire image with Copic markers.
I stamped the image with Memento Desert Sand.
Copic colors used: 
E21, E11, E13, E04, R30, R21, R22
B00, B21, B0000
B21, BG01, B23, B24
Y08, C1
E35 and Y15
For the eyesights I used Uni-ball Signo Angelic
For the eyelashes I used a Copic multi-liner
Then added some light shimmer with Wink of Stella Clear on the hair
and parts of her guitar as well as the stars in the background.

I colored this image based on this show my daughter Jade watches
it's called LoliRock. Talia is the name of this character, her hair is normally
brown but with magical powers her hair transforms to this frosty blue.

Close up and you can also see the shimmer a little better. 


I hope you enjoyed our August peeks so far!
 Have a great day!

Thank you for stopping by,
