Halloween Birthday Card using Simon Says Stamp If the Hat Fits stamp set.

Hey Everyone!
A friend at work asked if I would make her a Halloween inspired birthday card for her Mom and I just had to try to replicate the card Kelly Latevola made. Here is the link to her blog post that I was inspired from.

This Simon Says Stamp If the Hat Fits stamp set has been my absolute fave Halloween stamp set so far.

I used Distress Inks for the background and Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers for the hats.

I really went out of my comfort zone with adding the white gel pen accents to the hats like Kelly did but I'm so glad I did because it really gave me the confidence to do it again.

I went a little wild on the inside and stamped with Distress Oxide Inks using the Honey Bee Stamp set , Celebration Box.

I made the envelope using some pattern paper in my stash.

Thank you for stopping by and I will see you next time.

Color Throwdown #466

Happy Thursday!

This weeks Color Throwdown Challenge #466 colors are Plum, Olive and Rust. I'm a new stamper so I am using again the SSS Fractile Leaves stamp set. I wish I could find some Thanksgiving stamps but of well..leaves will do.

I first stamped in Versafine and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then water colored with Distress Oxide inks. I used Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves and Wild Honey. I also used some Barn Door Distress mixed with the Wild Honey to get the rusty color. I was a tad apprehensive since one oxide and one regular but it came out great.

After they dried I fussy cut them all out. I then took the seedless preserve ink and splattered it onto some Olive card stock.

I used the same Rust concoction to color some white cardstock to make the sentiment banner.
The sentiment comes from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set.

I popped it all onto a Kraft card base.

The inside sentiment is from the SSS essential greetings set.

Thank you for coming by and see you next time!

Color Throwdown #463 using SSS Fractile Leaves.

Happy Saturday!
I didn't think I would be getting to a post for the Color Throwdown Challenge #463 this week but thanks to Hurricane Nate....I had some time after prepping the house. 

The colors this week are Orange, White and Kraft.

I used the same SSS Fractile Leaves stamp set  in last weeks throw down but i just couldn't help using it again this week. 

 I used Ranger White Detail Embossing Powder to heat emboss the leaves and sentiment. The sentiment comes from the SSS Ornate Leaves stamp set. 

I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor markers in orange tones for the leaves. I then embellished with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in Orange Marmalade.

Thanks for stopping by and be safe if in the path of Huricane Nate!
