Hello Stampin' Friends!! One more day until the weekend--yay--has your week seemed as long as mine, hee hee! Saturday I'm teaching a Copic class here at my home which is always fun for me cuz' I just love teaching everyone how to use their copics. I will have another class on October 11th & that will be my last class for this year due to the upcoming holidays--I will resume classes come Jan/Feb! I'll also be cleaning the upstairs/bedrooms carpets with my new $400 carpet cleaner (Royale) which I just love--isn't that exciting, lol! But I spend at least $800 a year using professional carpet cleaners so the fact that this machine does such a fabulous job & I can do it myself does excite me (oh the small joys, hee hee)! I already did our basement level & all the area rugs on the main floor which is totally hardwood except for rugs--love it! But that's it for my weekend plans! What is everyone else up to this fall weekend?
Oh boy, as soon as I saw these cute Magnolia stamps with their bikes I knew they had to be mine (there is an Edwin w/ bike as well) and you can find them HERE at Magnolia-licious! Isn't she just as cute as can be? The background stamp is from Whiff of Joy called "Fall Grass" & you can find it HERE. The layout is this week's SCS sketch #247 which is fabulous & so easy to use with your Magnolia stamps. The pretty paper is from Frances Meyer (that I've hoarded cuz' I lovee it) paired w/ SU ballet blue cs & PTI's lemon tart cs. Those side embellies are buttons that I put a yellow Kaiser pearls on top of--love to add stuff to my buttons to change them up, hee hee! The fun sentiment is from PTI's "Everyday Button Bits" set!
Isn't she just a cutie? She's colored w/ copics and then I cut her out & popped her up w/ dimensionals. I stamped the grassy hill & then made clouds w/ my cloud template (see video I made about this on sidebar if you're interested). I always like to make my clouds sparkle so I added some diamond stickles on top! And the bike & her sneakers got diamond glaze, stickles on the flowers & lace trim and some silver Spica pen on the bike's handlebars.
Here is a close-up to show the dimension. So I stamped the bike basket & bouquet twice and popped them up so there are 3 levels of dimension on this image. Love, love how this one turned out!!
Second project is another fun Halloween project I made using some more of those cute Pink Cat Studio Digi stamps that you can find HERE! This is "IB Betty-Ladybug Costume" & she's such a lil' cutie! I printed her out in 2 sizes (fun thing to do w/ digi stamps) & for those who are asking: I print them out right onto my Gina K Luxury cs in 120 lb weight (same that I stamp on) with my Epson R300 printer set to print on matte paper. I don't have to heat set it or wait--I start coloring right away w/ my copics & no smearing!
I added some stickles to her costume, some fun star buttons from my stash & that fun border was done w/ my Fiskars border diamond punch. The bag topper is simple to make & filled w/ yummy sour pumpkin gumdrops--YUMMO! These are so quick & easy to make up & so much fun to give!!
That's all for me today--I gotta get lotsa stuff done today as usual, hee hee! Have a great one!
