Global Art

There is a fun exchange at Global Postcard  Art Swap and the theme this exchange is Thankful.  Each exchange you get three names to send your art to and you receive three pieces of happy mail back!

Using a coverplate, the pumpkin area was colored in.  I used colored pencils and applied a thick coat.  Then, I used a copic marker and the wax from the colored pencil seems to move the ink around and shades itself.  The sentiment was diecut and colored.  

I have a lot to be grateful for in my life.  I am also grateful you stopped by and left a comment!  Enjoy this season!

Choose To Be Grateful

Hi stamping friends!  STAMPlorations is having a blog hop and linky party.  Hop along and leave comments for a chance to win prizes and see all the creativity the STAMPglirls have whipped up!

Today's card features the  Doodled Autumn Pumpkin Cover Plate Die and the Choose To Be Grateful Phrase Die.  The cover plate was cut twice and the pumpkin was cut out of the second cut.  A half of an inch was cut out of the full cover plate and small pieces of paper were cut to cover the rawn edge.   This was adhered to the cardstock piece.  An oval was cut and the pumpkin was colored with a heavy coat of colored pencil and then an orange Copic marker.  The word phrase die was glued to the pumpkin and a few sequins were added. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to hop and leave comments and then link up your wishlist.

Happy Holidays

I was cleaning my craft room and found some baubbles and ribbons to use.  A white background was embossed with snowflakes and the sentiment was added.  The baubbles and ribbons were hung after drawing some strings.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello stamping friends!  Are you looking for your pot of gold?  Perhaps this month you will find it because the theme this month at STAMPlorations is stamps and rainbows.  I have heard if you find a rainbow there is always a pot of gold waiting!    

Remember, you can either join in with the theme or the sketch.

Using the smoosh technique, distress inks were swiped across an acrylic block.  Then all the colors on the block were misted and smooshed onto the paper.   Let the block sit on the paper for a few minutes for the ink to absorb into the paper.   When the paper was dry, it was cut with a circle die. The chipboard letters did not take the swoosh technique so well so I used my fingers dipped into the distress ink and rubbed my finger across each letter.

All of the art pieces were stamped in distress ink and fussy cut.  After all the words and letters were added to the rainbow circle, clear sequins were added.

Thanks for stopping by and may you have a creative day!  If you would like to save 20 percent on your STAMPlorations order, use the code STAMPGIRLJERRIE at checkout.

I'm Going Batty

This bat is bringing Halloween greetings as it is driving my grandson batty.  

Happy Halloween and I am off to North Carolina to see my grandson that is driving me batty.

I'm Going Batty

Have you had a chance to play along with STAMPlorations Stamps and Autumn challenge?  Rember, you can use either the theme or sketch.  You can also enter the challenge SIX yes 6 times!

I accidently found a new technique.  I colored my image in colored pencils and it was not vibrant enough for me.  Then I went over the colored pencils with a Copic marker and it magically shaded the pumpkin.  The ink moves around on the wax surface and when it dries it looks glossy.

To finish off my card, some patterned paper was added on the bottom.  A few distress ink splatters were added and the sentiment was stamped.

I am grateful you stopped by today and have a great autumn!
