Bunny Girl


Hope you're all gearing up for a lovely weekend.

I couldn't wait to break out my prism pencils to colour this adorable new image from Technique Junkies stamps- Bunny Girl. I see a lot of use for her in my future.

My White on White Card was inspired by Paula Wolschlager Williamson, who is in my opinion one of the best pencil artists out there!!!!

I coloured up the image with Prismacolor pencils and then simply mounted it white on white, adding some texture to the middle layer with an embossing folder!

Because  this is a new release, you can save 15% on this image until November 8th.

Happy Stamping

Welcome to the Technique Junkies Stamps October Release Blog Hop~
We have some fabulous projects to share with you today!

If you've been hopping already, you've just arrived from the super talented Beth Norman's Blog

Today' I have three cards to show you




This card features the Olive Branch Background Stamp

I stamped the image on a white background and then coloured it in using my Zig Clean Brush Markers. I used a circle die to cut a hole so that I could stamp the Heartfelt Sympathy sentiment in the back


This fun Christmas card features the  Cocktail Joy stamp
I coloured this image with Copic Markers, adding some chunky glitter and glossy accents to jazz it up a little!




I LOVE this fun stamp! The image reminds me a bit of Lucille Ball!!!

Everyday should be a Red Lipstick day, shouldn't it?

This is another one coloured in Copic. I added some find silver glitter for a little pizzazle!

I paired her up with Metropolitan Girl Paper from Echo Park!

I like the retro feel~~~~

I'm hopping from Halloween to Christmas today to feature the Beary Christmas Die Set that accompanies the Beary Christmas Stamps. These sets accessorize with the Beary Sweet Stamps and Dies. I knew these sets would look awesome in front of the Fireplace Die. I coloured all of the images with Copic Marker, using some Sparkle Fluff on the white fluffy areas. I completed the card 
using the Ho Ho Ho Die sentiment.

I sure hope you've enjoyed all of your "Hop Stops"
