Wish upon a star

I just love this card.  I have no idea who I will send it to, lol.  I have the Lawn Fawn, Upon a Star clear stamp set that I got after watching a K Werner video.  What I don't have is any masking material or dies for the stamps.  I absolutely HATE to fussy cut and I don't have a pixscan mat for my Silhouette, yet so this is what I came up with for the night sky without have to stamp the critters separately..  I used a blending tool and Stampin' Up pad in Island Indigo followed by Memento stamp pads in Nautical Blue and Elderberry and blended out the night sky.  I stamped some stars and the hooting star and heat embossed them in white.  I had some gems from Dollar Tree and used one for the shooting star.  For the fox and bunny: The fox was colored with Spectrum Noir GB5, GB6, and GB7 and the bunny in EB1 and EB2.  I then used Stampendous Fun Flock on the bunny tail and the white parts on the fox's fur.  Overall, happy with the result.

Hooray: Broadway Star

These cards are from this month's Paper Pumpkin subscription. The aren't specific, but I figure they can be used for graduation and a birthday card.  I don't intend on making all 8 of them, but I will keep the card stock to use for other projects.

I wanted to toy with the idea of an offset, corner circle for the image.  I wasn't in the mood to make a Christmas card tonight (or any themed holiday for that matter) but I love this stamp set from Inkadinkado, "All Hallows Eve" and in particular, the pumpkins.  I stamped the image with a Colorbox ink pad called "Dune" and colored it in with my Spectrum Noirs.  The cover paper was a sheet I purchased (I am not kidding here) 20 years ago at, I think, Michaels.  I used a sentiment from a generic stamp set I got from Aliexpress. Finally, I used some ribbon I got from Tuesday morning and some orange butcher's twine to finish it off

Happy Birthday

This card was formed from the idea to repeatedly stamp a single sentiment and highlight it in one place.  I don't have a lot of sentiment stamps, so I had to use what I have.  The Happy Birthday sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up.  I only know the bird stamp was a free digital stamp, but not where I got it (It's been sitting on my computer forever).  I colored it in with some Spectrum Noir and gave the top birdie a lollipop with a small enamel dot.

Happy Bride

This is a quick card for my high school friend who recently got engaged.  I decided to use a ScrapBerry stamp that's really supposed to be a little girl dressing as a princess, but I figured it would work as a bride.  I used Color Box dune ink for the main image then embossed with clear glitter and colored in with a few Spectrum Noir markers.

Thinking of You

This card is being used as a sympathy card, but the sentiment can be changed to make it just a general card.  The stamp set I used was just a generic set I have with a trunk and different sets of leaves:leaves, flowers or hearts.  The sentiment is stamped on a small piece of cardstock from a country paper pack from Michaels and the ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

Father's Day

I received a Paper Pumpkin kit called "Manly Moments" from Stampin' Up for May 2018.  I made 2 cards for my father and my father-in-law.  I love that the kits come with stamps that I can use for the foreseeable future.  They also come with a small ink spot.  This month's color was 'Mossy Meadow".

Book Hello

I purchased a bunch of dies from Aliexpress and this one is a lovely girl on a book.  I used a paper pack called "Meet Me in Paris". The stamped sentiment is from a Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin kit.

Merry and Bright

Not real sure how I feel about this one.  In general, I like it, but I think I should have done this on white cardstock instead.  I think the colors would be much more vibrant.  Also, because I decided to do a simple, one-layer card, I screwed up the sentiment stamp.  Of course, that was AFTER I had stamped and colored all the lights and put the Glossy Accents on.  I know, I know...what a moron. I stamped on a blank sheet of Kraft paper and cut it out just horribly,  Ah well. I'll do this one again but cleaned up on white cardstock

Anyway, the lights are from the WPlus9 - Festive Greetings and the sentiment is from Inky Antics - Christmas Sentiments.

Halloween Balloons

Are these not the cutest stamps? These are Best Halloween - Clearly Besotted stamps.  I was loving the paper which is from Summertime Designs. I (badly) colored in the stamps with my Spectrum Noir least the candy corn balloons because my oranges bled.  I got some thread from the Dollar Tree a few months ago and used those for the balloon strings.  I just love this because it's just so darn cute :D
