Two Paper Divas

I can't believe we are in to mid October already.  Where does the time go?  Today I am posting one of my favorite October release cards.  This card reminds me of my sister Debbi.  She has or has had at one time each of these animals on her farm.
I used a barn die that made all the animals stand out.  I colored each one of the animals with my copic markers and decided there was only one way to get all these animals on one card and that was to do a step card. The stamp is called Farm Friends.

Dueling Darlings

Well it's the 15th and time for our Dueling Darling challenge. I just finished this card in the nick of time.  So sorry for the quality of the picture but taken in the dark of the night.

I apologize to Paola who came up with this fantastic fall challenge because I cannot find where the stamp came from.  All I know is that I had a ball coloring these images with my copic markers and putting the card together.

Here are what my team mates made using this adorable image.

Two Paper Divas

Time again for a new stamp set from Two Paper Divas for the month of October.  Today I am sharing 2 cards that I made using the set called "Zoo Friends". 
 For my bear card I started by stamping the mountains in the center of the card using the stamp set "Mountains".  I then stamped the mountain image on a piece of masking paper and cutting around the top of the mountains.  I then cut myself a 1 3/4" circle and laid it over the masked moutains and started sponging using "Scattered Straw" distress ink.  I stamped the bear on a piece of paper and colored him with my copic markers.  I fussy cut him out and put him in the scene.  The happy birthday is from "Happy Everything" stamp set.  I just stamped it on a rectangle and made a post out of a piece of 1/2" paper.
For this card I sponged my sun in the center of the card and then stamped my wolf and colored him with my dark gray copic markers.  I then sponged around the whole card using gray ink and then stamped the "Pine Branch" around the edges.

Remember that everything in Two Paper Divas store is 25% off right now.  Grab that stamp you have been wanting now.

Unidentified Image Swap #28

Today I am posting a picture of the fun image selected by Heather for our Unidentified Image Swap in October.  The image today is from Pink Cat Studio called Lilly & Tweet. 

I colored the image with my copic markers.  I started with the paper I wanted to use and then got my copics out that would match.  What a fun image this was.  Be sure and check out what everyone else has done on the team.

Two Paper Divas

I can't believe September is behind us and October is here. I do love the chill in the air, the beautiful fall colors and the scents of fall.

This month brings sadness to me because I'm sure you have read Two Paper Divas website and have found out that they will be no longer re-stocking their inventory.  I have loved working with Gayla and Melissa.  They are the nicest people you will ever meet and wonderful to work with.   This month will be the last release for them.

You will also notice that everything in the store is 25% off.  But it is first come so if you have been wanting a certain stamp, act now because they will be selling out their inventory.

I loved this stamp set called "Fern".  I think it is just gorgeous.  I colored the image with my copic markers.

Be sure and check out the Two Paper Divas store and order that stamp you have been wanting. while you still can.

Two Paper Divas

Well September is winding down and here I am with my last card of the month.  for my card today I used the new stamp called "Dasher".
For this card I started with a 4 x 5 1/4" piece of watercolor paper and blended Salty Ocean Distress Ink on the bottom and Scattered Straw for the Center.  Around the edges I blended Cracked Pistachio.  I then stamped around the edges using my "Pine Branch" stamp.  I highlighted each branch using a white marker to make it look like snow on the branches.

I colored my cute little guy with copic markers and then pop dotted him on the center of the card.  The sentiment is from Mason Jar Access #2.

See you next week when I have October Release projects.

Two Paper Divas

It's Friday and you know what that means.  Time for another post from my Two Paper Divas September Release sets.  This week I am going Christmas and decided to make this card. 
I first started with watercolor paper and sponged with my distress inks.  I used Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves.  I am amazed at how much better the colors blended on the watercolor paper.  Going to have to keep that in mind for future projects.  I then stamped with versamark ink using  the stamp "Oh Holy Night" and used silver embossing powder.  I punched a few stars out to put on the corners to give it a little sparkle.

Hope to see you back next week because I have a cute little fella going to show up on my blog.
