WHOOO WANTS CANDY?

Hey there, I absolutely LOVE Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch this week and thought Hoot & Pumpkin from Whipper Snapper Designs would be perfect!  I did end up taking a couple liberties with it though...I omitted the banner and added that awesome flying bat!


I teamed the sketch up with my all time favorite night sky pattern paper from Graphic 45.  I think it came out last year, but I can't remember.  *confession time*  I bought a bunch of the paper and I've been hoarding it...but I know I'm not the only one that does that, so I'm ok with it!  *grin*  The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White card stock, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam.  I have to tell you...I'm beyond thrilled with how the moon turned out!  Although I'm pretty comfortable with my Copics, I still experiment and learn new things about coloring all the time!  I was trying to match up the moon coloring to the stars in the paper.  They are sort of a creamy, yellowish color and I thought I was way wrong with my marker choices...but I did it anyway and it worked!  It matched perfectly!  Whoop!

Here's a side view so you can see the dimension the bat gives the card.  Love!


Hmmm...my close up looks a tad blurry.  Sorry about that!  No time to take more pictures.  I need to get going to work now.  Ugh!

TOO CUTE TO SPOOK!

Hey there, I had some time to color another Halloween card.  This is Gilley, from Whipper Snapper Designs.  Adorable, right!?!  I just love a kitty with a little, pink nose!  Our neighbor's cat has a pink nose, and we have affectionately nicknamed him LoverBoy.  He's just the sweetest little thing...next to our Gypsy, of course!


Gilley was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White then colored with Copic markers.  OMGosh...I am totally in LOVE with My Favorite Things' Blueprints dies.  The stitched edging adds the perfect touch to a CAS (clean and simple) card!  The sentiment was computer generated...here's a close up so you can see the detail.  How awesome is that font with the spidy webs and creepy crawlies on it!?!  *grin*  


In case you're reading the supply list below and you're wondering where I used Scor-Tape...did you know you could make any die cut into a sticker with a little bit of Scor-Tape?  It's my new favorite thing to do.  Just run a piece of Scor-Tape on the back of the card stock, place it in your die cutting machine and the die will cut through both the paper and the adhesive.  Pick out the little pieces then pull it off the backing sheet and viola...instant sticker!  Gotta love that!

COPIC COLORING: 
CAT:  C6, C4, C2, R30, R000  NOSE:  R30, R000  HAT:  V17, V15, V12, YG17, YG03, YG21, R89, YR09, YR04  PUMPKIN:  R89, YR09, YR04, YG21, E57, E55, E53  LEAVES:  YG17, YG03, YG21, R89, YR09, YR04  GROUND:  YG17, YG03, YG21

HOCUS POCUS

Hey there, I've got a Halloween card to share with you today.  The image is Hazel, from Whipper Snapper Designs.  Be careful not to stare at her too long...she might cast a spell on you!  Ha!



The image was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White card stock then colored with Copic markers.  You can't tell in the pictures, but the all of their eyes, the cat's nose and the witch's fingernails have clear glaze for a nice, subtle shine...and the "spell" (green glow) has Clear Wink of Stella glitter pen on it.  I also used the lightest green marker on her hands and a bit on the sleeves of her shirt.  The sentiment was computer generated...love that font for Halloween!

TIME TO RELAX...

Hey there, happy Bellariffic Friday to you!  I've had a horrible week so I'm thinking Uptown Girl Reilly Needs to Relax, from Stamping Bella, has the right idea!  I may just kick back and open up a bottle of wine...right after I get my craft on with the girls at Memories of Time!  *grin*



This week's challenge was an inspiration photo.  I was inspired by the spots on the giraffe and the color palette.  Reilly Needs to Relax was the perfect image for both!  She was stamped with Tuxedo Black onto Neenah card stock then colored with Copic markers.  I kept the layout easy peasy but wished I could have squeezed in the awesome sentiment that comes with the set.  Oh well...next time!


COPIC COLORING: 
SKIN:  E11, E00, E0000  SHOES:  E79, E77, E74  CHAIR:  E79, E77, E74, E71, E70  GLASS:  E70, E00, E0000  WINE BOTTLE AND GROUND:  E71, E70

Hope you can join in for next week's Bellariffic Fridays Sketch challenge.  Email your card to Em by Thursday, September 25, to be included on Bloggabella...you could win some Bella Bucks, but you have to use a current stamp!  I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
