Reindeer Tags by Pickled Potpourri



 
 
Time for another Christmas idea.  These are Reindeer Tags by Pickled Potpourri.  Aren't they cute?  I made a card and gift tag using this digital set.  The images are colored with Copic Markers.  The background paper is from my scraps drawer.  I added stickles on the snowflakes and bells around the deer collars, red pom pom balls for the noses, a brad from the Cha Cha hardware collection from Red Rubber designs, and a couple of ribbons for the tag.  Easy!

Christmas Collage by Pickled Potpourri


 Christmas Collage is a digi image by Pickled Potpourri.  It makes a lovely Christmas card.  For my card, I printed the image twice on XPress Copic cardstock, colored it with Copic markers (YG07, R35, B28, YR04, BV00, Y15, BG53, G46, G43, B000) sponged Color Box Chalk ink (Bisque) in the background.  I used a Gold Wink of Stella pen around the rim of the stain glass window and then a Gold Leafing pen around the blue matting behind the image and around the edge of the card.  The stained glass window is cut out and popped up over the base image..I cut out the blue matting with a deckle edge trimmer.

This second view shows the shiny gold around the edges.

Cup of Love by Pickled Potpourri


Here is a second card made with Pickled Potpourri's Cup of Love.  In my last post I showed you a card using the kitten.  This little puppy is my favorite.  I made my card with Kirby Teesdale patterned paper by Paper Studio.  The image is printed on XPress Copic cardstock, cut with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Oval Lg die, and colored with Copic markers (BG000, BG01, RV63, RV66, R000, E11, C1, C5)  I backed the image and sentiment with rose colored cardstock and used Crystal Stickles on the collar and parts of the cup.

Red Rubber Inspirational #142 - Pumpkin Patch


I made this paper-pieced card for the Red Rubber Inspirational this week called Pumpkin Patch.  I've used a stamp set from Red Rubber Designs, Happy Harvest.  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and also on scraps of patterned paper.  Then I cut out the pieces and glued them on top the image.  The scarecrow's face and the grass were colored with Copic markers, but all the remaining elements are paper-pieced.  The background sky is made with blue ink, a sponge, and cloud template.  This was a fun fall card.  

Now I will give this card in a fall mingle swap with my local stamp group.  The theme for the swap is paper piecing.

Do you have pumpkin stamps?  Come join the Red Rubber Inspirational challenge this week.  It is fun.

Sweet Autumn by Pickled Potpourri


This is Sweet Autumn by Pickled Potpourri.  It is a scene that depicts the season with leaves blowing in the breeze and a pumpkin carved ready for Halloween.  It could make a birthday card or thinking of you card.  This was a fun image to color with my Copic markers.  I backed it with some patterned cardstock and added buttons.  The Copics I used are B12, B14, B16, B18, Y13, Y15, Y17, YG93, YG95, YG97, E15, E59, C1, and C5.
