Jamming Animals

Posted on

  I love this new stamp set that I got from Recollections. It is called Jamming Animals and it is so cute. I love the expression on the Rhino’s face. He is really into his jam!

I stamped and colored  the images before I ran the card through the Cuttlebug inside the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. As a final touch I used Glossy Accents in a couple of places on the stamps to give the card a little more dimension.

I will be entering these cards in the Lawnscaping Challenge : Stamp a Scene

Happy Stamping,

Merry Christmas to Me

   

 

I bought myself a Christmas present this year. It is something I have been wanting for a long time….Copic Markers!!!  (Copic markers are alcohol based, they can be blended and they are refillable.) The markers were on sale at Dick Blick and if you spent $150 you received another 15% off your total order and free shipping. So I made like I was the last of the big spenders and plunked down $152 on myself. Needless to say I won’t be getting anything under the tree but I don’t mind!

I used to color all of my stamped images with colored pencils and then blend them with Gamsol. But I was never really thrilled with the results. These markers blend so nicely and the cards I have made with them appear more professionally finished.

BTW: The first two cards are made with Recollections stamps and the third is a House Mouse stamp. The Copic set I bought was 36A from the Ciao collection. (Ciao is cheaper than Sketch markers.) I purchased an additional 12 colors and a blender pen at the time of order and because of the blendable properties of the pen these 38 colors should be all that I need for a long while!
