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.

Adorable Animals - #3 by Pickled Potpourri




This is week #3 to show you a card from the Pickled Potpourri digital set called Adorable Animals.  This is Pup.  Since he has a balloon, I made a birthday card and have him floating in the air. I used Hip Hop patterned cardstock by Red Rubber Designs for the background, a Stampin' Up die and paper piecing kit to cut the image, a circle clip, and some Crystal Stickles on the balloon and some of the patterned cardstock.  A cloud template, sponge and Palette Reflection Blue ink made the clouds.

Adorable Animals - #2 by Pickled Potpourri





Here is my second card to show you from the Pickled Potpourri digital set called Adorable Animals.  This is Lamb!  Isn't it a precious little animal to say "thinking of you" and "you are in my prayers"?  For my card I used background patterned paper from Crate Paper (Farmhouse and Story Teller).  The image is cut out with Spellbinders Labels 8. The sentiment is from Rose Sentiments by Pickled Potpourri.  I colored the lamb with Copic markers (R30, R000, R83, R85, R89, N0, N1, T5, T0, YG93, YG95, YG97).  And lastly I added some pink jewels.

Focus on Stamping - Anything Goes by Red Rubber Inspirationals


Today's Red Rubber Inspirational challenge is Anything Goes with a focus on stamping.  I love this sweet stamp called Amelia from Jackson and Amelia Cling Foam stamps by Red Rubber Designs.  I've stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers and then cut a circle and matted her with a scallop edge from a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment is computer generated.  It seemed to fit her expression.  The background paper is from my paper stash. Hope you like her too.     

Come join this challenge with some of your favorite stamps.

International "Talk Like a Pirate" Day with Little Miss Muffet


Today is International "Talk Like a Pirate Day", so I am using a Little Miss Muffet stamp called Swings 'n Slides Pirate to join in their Anything Goes Challenge.


I really had fun coloring this little fella with my Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Treasure Seeker by Red Rubber Designs.  The background bandana paper is My Mind's Eye, and I embossed the blue cardstock with a Sizzix Embossing Folder.  The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut into an oval shape with my Coluzzle cutter.  I put a yarn rope around the oval.  

Thanks for looking at my blog.

Adorable Animals - #1 by Pickled Potpourri





For the next few weeks I want to show you some cards made with this whimsical digital image set from Pickled Potpourri.  It is called Adorable Animals.

The first card is made with Duck from this set.  I used background paper from Crate Paper (Farm House).  The image is cut out with Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and matted on another piece of patterned paper from Crate Paper (Farm House).  The sentiment is from Elegant Greetings by Pickled Potpourri.  I colored the image with Copics (YG93. YG95, YG97, Y13, Y15, Y17, YR12, YR15, YR16).  I added an orange gingham ribbon and bow and some Crystal Stickles on the flowers.
