Happy Holidays

Good morning!  Today's card is one that I made quite awhile back but never got around to sharing on my blog.


These sweet images are from Lawn Fawn's Toboggan Together stamp set.  I colored the deer and gifts with copics and then diecut them with the coordinating dies.  The colorful papers and enamel dots are by Doodlebug Design.  I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the gifts and a black glaze pen on the deer's eye, nose and hooves.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita

Hoppy Halloween

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing another fun Halloween card.


I was on Instagram the other day and ran across the cutest little Halloween digis.  Since I love all things Halloween I had to check it out.  These adorable little bunnies are from the IsabelCristinaStamps etsy shop.  Be sure to check out her shop because she has other sweet digis over there.  These bunnies are from her Hoppy Halloween bundle.  I stamped the bunnies on Neenah cardstock and then masked them.  I sponged on distress inks for the background.  Sponging on Neenah is not the easiest technique but I think it turned out OK.  I colored the bunnies with copics, placed the masks on again, then flicked white acrylic paint over the panel.  I'm sure I'll be using these cute bunnies again since I really enjoy making Halloween cards.

Copics used:
Bunny 1 - E43, E42, E41, E40
Bunny 2 - E33, E31, E30, E50
Bunny 3 - W2, W1, W0
Bunny Ears - E02, E00, E000

Frightful Flight

Good morning!  I've been making lots of Halloween cards lately so I have another one to share today.


This cute hedgehog is from Penny Black and it's called Frightful Flight.  I have had this stamp forever and I'm glad I finally found some time to ink it up!  I love all the little critters from Penny Black and they're some of the first stamps I started "collecting" lol.  I stamped the image on Neenah and then masked it in order to sponge the purple clouds with distress ink.  I also used distress ink to sponge the ground.  I colored the image with copics and used a black glaze pen on the hedgehog's eye and nose.  I stamped some little black bats flying around the hedgehog to finish my card. 

Copics Used:
Hedgehog - E27, E25, E23, E21 and E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
