Open at Your Own Wisk!

I have created this card using the stamps called Web Background and Haunting Fun Sentiment Set.  The sentiment set - Haunting Fun has some many fun spooky saying that will make you laugh.  

You couldn't get more of a simple card with a giggle at Halloween.  Simply stamp the can even emboss...don't worry about coloring unless you are "in the mood".  Stamp the sentiment and broom and color it up...BAM!  SO easy.  I used Wood paper and ribbon loops to hold the "door plank" for the latch.  EASY!  Would be a fun party invite with info on the inside.  If you aren't into Halloween then why don't you switch it up to a kitchen card...I have lots of idea in my head...stuck!

Ornament Background - In Not Christmas Colors

Hello!  We are half way through the year which means....Yes, we have to start thinking about the upcoming Holiday Season.  When I think about Jennifer Dove I think of these colors!  You see her Christmas tree was anything but traditional last year!  It was the brightest and happiest tree I've seen and full of magenta's and teals.  If I recall this year it will be filled with golds and chocolates which fits her wonderful sepia colorings to perfection!

This is the Newly Released Ornament Background.

I did not make it into a card I just needed to color it!  I think for the holidays it will become a frames or mixed media piece which I will cherish because it will always remind me of Jenn's tree!  Maybe I will color another version matching the Jennifer Dove Family tree for 2016!  

Here is the Color Palette I used....

Christmas Horns

Hi, I'm back :)

This time I have my favorite of the Christmas in July release 'Christmas Horns' as soon as I laid eyes on this I had to colour it, to me it simply says 'Christmas'.

I have used both Copic Markers and Kaszazz Markers for this one.    Horns - Y13, A1205, A7406, A122. Bow & Berries R24, 27, 89. Holly - G05,09, 17. Background - N8 & R27.

Winter Pine

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a card I made with a beautiful stamp from the July Release - Winter Pine! I love this stamp which can be used by itself, or as a background with a little character in front! You can find the best places to purchase it HERE!  

I stamped my trees and coloured them in Copics. I then added a bit of Distress Inks around the edges and put white embossing powder on them and heat set the powder. I used Star Dust Stickles on the snow on the ground and added white snowflakes in the sky with a white gel pen. To finish off the card, I stamped a sentiment on vellum, which I heat set, and used Stickles on the edges of my vellum to complete the frosty look. 

Background: B97, 99
Trees: G28, YG17, 63, 67
Snow: BG000, C0, 1, 3

Happy stamping!

Here is a little more inspiration from the talented Zoe with MakeIt Crafty.  She colored up the "Boots" from the September release.
These are so cool and she came up with the cute sentiment too. haha!
She always wanted a "cherry" colored pair of Doc's so she decided to color them up cherry colored using her Copics.
RV02, E04, R85, RV69
I also used:
YG63, E44, E25 for the sole
and Warm and Cool grays for the rest.

For the snow I added Diamond Dust and Crystal Art Glitter and for the berries I added Christmas Red Stickles for some extra shimmer.  I wanted to add some extra dimension so I popped up the female Cardinal twice plus her wing and the male Cardinal is popped up three times plus his wing and cheek.  I really love how this card turned out!
