Hello Autumn

Hi there!

Today I'm showing you a card I made created using Social Sally from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

I used my Prismacolor 150 set to color this image on Kraft cardstock. I colored her top to look like a leather jacket and pants to look like dark blue dressy jeans. I colored heart to look like a heart from an iMessage.

The dies are from Prickley Pear and the are called Leaf Set. They Leaf set has a coordinating stamp set but I did use it this time I just colored them with copic markers on Kraft paper. The designer paper is from Doodlebug and it's called "Friendly Forest."

I originally wanted to make my own background with with the sentiments that came with the stamps but I changed my mind and wanted to do some layering with brown papers and the Doodlebug paper I mentioned above. The dies I used for the frames are from My Creative Time.

Hooray for natural sunlight. :P 

Here's a close-up of my coloring. 

Thank you for visiting.

Witching you the Best

Hey there Crafty Friends,

Today I'm posting a card I was inspired to finish for a Crafty Friend. I started working on this image a while back but only colored the eyes and skin. Last night I colored the hair, clothing and background and I didn't stop until I finished the coloring. Yay!

I used Prismacolor pencils on Kraft Paper to color Witch Willa from http://www.kraftinkimmiestamps.com For the background I used distress inks and I drew in some details like the spider and spiderweb also added golden shimmer to the clothing and jewelry with some gel pens. The dies are from Craftin Desert Divas Fancy Frame Dies
Inside scalloped rectangle dies  and My Creative Time Stitched Rectangular Frames Dies and More



Distress Inks: Black Soot, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves and Mustard Seed. 

 Here is a close-up.

Don't you love the little toad's expression?! Haha



I hope you like my card. 


Thank you for visiting.

Customer Appreciation Day at LMMS

Good Morning šŸ˜ƒ Crafty Friends!

A while ago I won a challenge at Little Miss Muffett Stamps and was asked  if I'd like to participate in their Customer Appreciation Day. Of course I said yes! I was delighted šŸ˜ to be chosen and be able to color an unreleased stamp. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils. I used lots of colors and had lots of fun coloring her up. I drew in the eyes, nose and mouth myself. I did buy a face that can overlay on this stamp but I couldn't figure out how to rotate slightly (LOL) that was more of my error but  I think it came out okay anyway.

Here is my card using Polka Dot Pals Kaari


Thank you so much for stopping by.
