Woodland Santa


Welcome High Hopes Rubber Stamps Fans

It’s Wednesday, and this month at High Hopes Rubber Stamps we are celebrating Christmas. YAY!!!  This week, I used Woodland Santa – R098 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and a sentiment from our new release called O Christmas Tree – GLL002 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps).

To create the scene, I cut out various sizes of trees and then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour them. I also cut out various layers of snow from Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper. Other pieces from the same paper, I just tore for a variation in the snow. I ran all of the little trees and snow through the Xyron Creative Station which made it much easier to put the scene together. Lastly, I popped up the image and sentiment with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

Spring is here!


Welcome One Crazy Stamper Fans!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share these adorable hedgehogs who are so excited to smell the beautiful spring blossoms growing on the trees. I used Hedgies Spring Loaded (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) to create the scene. I added a little bit more to the tree off to the side.

I thought it would be fun to try colouring this stamp using various watercolour mediums and brushes.

I started off by stamping the image onto Arches Watercolour Paper, 140 lb. Cold Press.

Then I used a mixture of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Derwent Watercolour pencils and a paint palette.

I created the clouds by using a cotton ball and soaked into a little bit of water and then tapping it onto the paper to lift some of the watercolour. Finally, I used Pigma Micron 02 Archival Ink Pen to outline the flowers and the Hedge Hogs. For the noses, I used a Sakura Glaze – Black Pen.

Supplies Used:

Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers: Chocolate, Sepia, TerraCotta

Derwent Watercolour Pencils: Brown Ochre 57, Raw Sienna 58, Copper Beach 61, Vandyke Brown 55

Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Ground Espresso, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Brushed Corduroy, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Picked Raspberry, Krafty Kolours – Totally Taupe Mini Ink Cube

Ai Watercolor Essentials Palette

Background Paper: Recollections – Petite Floral – Double Sided 12 x 12 in (30.4 x 30.4 cm)

MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool

Brushes: Talkon H.I. Series – 970 White – #4, Legacy – Folk Art 1837 Perfect Liner #1, Bette Byrd “Aqua-Sable” 1600 Filbert 1\4

Ribbon: Ribbon Trends – Organdy Ribbon 029 White

Hope you like it and have a fantastic week!

Capture the Good Times!


Hi Dreamerland Crafts Fans!

Today I’d like to share a card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts Photographer stamp from their new release this year. I decided to colour the outfit blue to match the cameras in the background. To create the scene, I also used several of the Dreamland Mix and Match background stamps.

 

 

I used some Canson Watercolour paper and wet it down. Then I stamped on my clouds using Clouds – Dreamerland Crafts Mix & Match Collection stamp and a mixture of Tim Holtz Blue inks which you can find in the list below. For the background blue, I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Tumbled Glass, some water and a watercolour brush.

For the greenery Flower Beds – Dreamerland Crafts Mix & Match Collection stamp was used and stamped with a mixture of Tim Holtz greens and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Gathered Twigs. Then I used the watercolour brush and Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Wilted Violet for the flowers and to add in a little more colour below the shrubbery.

I popped up the little girl and bird with some 3M VHB – 2 sided tape after stamping the images with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then colouring the images in with Copic markers.

Background paper and sentiment are from Creative Memories – Shutter Bug collection which I thought was perfect to complete this card.

Note: Using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool allowed me to do the placement of the Mix and Match images with ease.

I hope you like my little photographer! Are you ready to go out and take some pictures now too???
