Sonny Honeycloud My Buddy

For my project today I've used Sonny Honeycloud My Buddy rubber stamp and the new Garden Border digital stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  I wanted to create a simple background that would help me fill out the white paper I stamped on yet allow for a vibrant colors to be added. So the Garden Border is what I came up with. 


These are the Copic markers I used on Sonny Honeycloud My Buddy and Garden Border:

YG97, 91, 63, 67, 23, 21
E31, 35, 37
E37, 21, 49, C3, 1, T7, 9
R02, E04
E49, 47, 44
YG95, 93, 91
YR23, 24, 30, 31
BG90, 72, 57
BG11, 10, 72
BV23, 0


To combine the digital and rubber stamps, I would print out the background to size in a very light gray.  Then I could stamp the rubber stamp directly over it and coloring would hide the light gray background. The fence would be colored with a darker color and on mine I also used a white gel pen.

Birthday Memories - Cake

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed the card layout from the coordinating stamp's catalog image. I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and added some gems for sparkle.  Instead of using the stamps in the background, I substituted it for more decorative paper in the suite.


Birthday Memories - Fox

I've used the Birthday Memories designer series papers from Stampin' Up! to create this project and followed an idea layout and idea design by the amazingly talented Juana Ambida. I also used some Make it Crafty chipboard embellishments for the sentiment and added some gems for sparkle. I didn't have the same metal die for the grass so I improvised with the tree one.

Theodore's Birthday

Here's an inspirational project for this week. On this project I've used Theodore's Birthday rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I had colored this image before (see it HERE) so I wanted to go with something different - to do that I used a different color pallet and colored the words differently. It's so fun to see how a stamp can be changed by just using different colors. I think this will work well for a baby card too.


These are the Copic markers I used on Theodore's Birthday:

R12, 17, 46
T1, 3, 5, 7
YG63, G43, 20
R12, E04, R43, RV42
B41, 95, BG72
YR30, 31, 23
BV23

Gazebo Overlook

For my project today, I've used Gazebo Overlook by DoveArt for Whimsy Stamps. When I started out, I had a bunch of ideas on how to make the scene stand out but the one that I wanted to try out the most was a night time sky. So that is what I started with.  It might have been better to leave that until last because once I got that dark blue on there, I had trepidation that this wouldn't work out.  But I persevered and the final image came out.


These are the Copic colors I used on Gazebo Overlook:

C1, 3, 5, 7, BV23
B39, 000, 91, 93, 95
YG97,67, 63, 23, 21
E47, 44, 43, 42
white gel pen

This and other Whimsy Stamps are also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
