Happy Fall

Hello there crafters!!!!

I'm trying to get back to blogging and keep up with Instagram!
So, I'm sharing a card with you that I created
using some challenge themes.

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge theme is Bling It On and 
Fusion Card Challenge theme is Autumn (I used the photo).
I used a whole lot of distress oxide inks, crushed olive, gathered twigs,
dried marigold, picked raspberry, peacock feathers, and hickory smoke.
I added some splashes of water and splattered some white and gold paint.

I used stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird, Fall Friends Stamp Set 
I inked up these cute fall animals with Copic Markers in shades:
Giraffe -E50, E51, E53, E55, E23, E18
RV10, RV02, RV04
YR00, YR02
Bunny - E50, E51, E53,
RV10, RV02
BG10, BG11, BG15

Lastly I added some accents with a white gel pen and clear stickles glitter.

I stamped all the images with black ink and colored them with Copic Markers. 
I fussy cut these cuties than inked up the edges with black marker.

I tore a piece of scrap paper and used it as a stencil than inked up the sky and sand 
using distress oxide inks. I added some splashes of water than splats of distress ink 
and white paint. 

Next up ate these cute tags! I used the same stamp set as the card,
These under water darlings and their sentiments fit perfectly!!!
I used Copic Markers and distress oxide inks to bring these images to life.
Yes, I had a lot of fun creating these tags!!!!

For my last project, I created a mermaid card...who can resist!?!
I used the stamp set Mermaid Wishes and some dies, Circle Scallop Frames
I die cut the inner circle with the beach waves several times and placed 
the mermaid tails in between. I colored the tails with Copic Markers and 
distressed the frame with distress oxide inks. I glittered up the scalloped edges.

Thank You....Create A Smile GDT

Hey there!
I'm stopping by today to share with you a card I created
for my Guest Design Spot for Create A Smile!!!!

This weeks theme is 'Use your favorite Create A Smile Stamp Set'....
Here is the card I created...
I used the stamp set Fine Ferns  because I am a sucker for leaves, and a whole bunch of distress oxide inks in shades picked raspberry, dried marigold, peacock feathers, wilted violet, cracked pistachio and squeezed lemonade. 

I added a few splashed of watered down white paint for the splatter effect. I also embossed one leaf with black embossing powder and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Decorated Wishes .
For a finishing touch I added a strip of pattern paper and some gems.

Thanks for peeking!
