Bat Halloween Card

I made this darling card using a circle and bat punch.  I embossed a swirly design on the bat and curled its wings to give it dimension.  The back ground paper and “happy hallo-scream” are retired products from The Angel Company.

Fancy Pig Greeting Card

 

I made this darling little card last night, several in fact.  I had to give one to my mama and my daughter who both adore pigs.  My daughter especially loved the piggy’s earrings.  I haven’t heard my mama’s comment yet as it hasn’t arrived to her yet.   She’ll probably see it here first. 🙂

I used The Angel Company’s stamp set  When Pigs Fly and colored it in with set A of the Copic Caboodle  markers.  I finally got a set LOVE them.  I should have gotten them sooner.  They are so versatile and the blender pen is the best.

To add the finishing touches I used ice Stickles around her glasses, self adhesive rhinestones for earrings and a Stardust Gel Pen to accent her boa.

Sweet Cake Birthday Card

Stamped Items 009

I just had to make another birthday card using The Angel Company stamp set Little Cupcake.  I used the stamps “cake” and word “Sweet”.  The patterned cardstock featured is from the Tutti Frutti Cardstock Collection.  I stamped the cake and colored it in with colored pencils, then trimmed it out.  I used the Stardust Gelly Pen to highlight the cake plate and the centers of the flowers.  Then I applied Crystal Lacqeur to the flowers to add texture.  I adhered the cake to the punched circles using Pop Dots.  As you know, I like my cards simple and sweet and I think this one is just that!

Stamped Items 003

I made this “sweet” little card using The Angel Company stamp set called Little Cupcake.  I ADORE this set!  It is full of my favorite images… cupcakes, cakes, and candy.  Making this card was simple.  It had 8 easy steps…

      1. Stamp the cupcake and sentiment in black on a a piece of 2-3/4″ x 2-1/8″ white cardstock.  Color in with colored pencils.  Use Crystal Lacquer to highlight the cherry.

      2. Round corners of white cardstock and drag edges in Iris Palette Ink. Lay aside.

      3. Fold a piece of 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ pink paper in half to make the card base.

      4. Use a Scallop Edge Punch to make the scallops on the 2″ x 5-1/2″ red cardstock

      5. Pierce red cardstock above scallops with needle and adhere to pink cardstock base.

      6. Tie brown ribbon around card (see picture).

      7. Adhere white cardstock with pop dots to card.

      8. Adhere red paper posie with glue dot for a final touch.

8 easy steps but once the card was assembled, it looks complicated.  Try this simple sketch today.

Owl Love Greeting Card

Owl Love Greeting Card

Owl Love Greeting Card

My new stamps from The Angel Company‘s new catalogue have arrived and I’ve been putting them to use.  I couldn’t wait to use them.  I absolutely love the new owl set Be Square.   At $12.95, this set has 8 stamps.  5 different owls and 3 different sentiments.  The senitment on this card is from the stamp set What a Hoot.  At $17.95, this set has 12 different sentiments regarding owls.  It would complement any owl set that is on the market.

This cute card is great for many occasions… birthday, anniversary, I love you… I will most likely use it in a Valentine’s Stamp Camp or Stamp Club.  I used Prisma Colored pencils in color him in.  To make his eyes I used 2 heart shaped, red brads sized 3/16″.  I used a white gel pen to make the whites of his eyes after I mounted the white onto the red cardstock.
