IO stamps Thursday Designer Challenge- Colours of the Rainbow


Good Morning!!!! Hope you're enjoying these first days of Autumn!

This weeks challenge is all colours of the Rainbow. Today I have two quick cards to share. I'll get the links to the inks a little later today, but i'm on the fly this morning. 
This first one displays fall in all its splendor! I love how Mother Nature Paints a Beautiful Rainbow of Colour across the landscape in Autumn, my favourite time of year!!!


I created the leaves by stamping first in golden rod ink, then orange, cherry red and a touch of tan.
Good grief, I love my Misti!




This card uses your typical bright and cheery rainbow colours and was easy peasy to make!!!

The stamps I used here are

and
one of the stamps from Seth Apters Grunge Grid set

Here's who's hopping today!

Be sure to leave your creation on the IO blog for a chance to win some stamping bucks!!!

Technique Junkies Stamps September Release Blog Hop


Good Morning!!!

Welcome to the Technique Junkies Stamps September release Blog hop.
If you've been hopping already, you have arrived from my sweet friend Ceal's Blog 

I have a couple of spooky creations to share with you today! So exciting because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Halloween cards!!!

For this card I combined three stamps

Old Wall, which I stamped in IO Tan Ink. 

I then took a Burnt Sienna Copic and dabbed some onto my colourless blender in order to deepen the shadows a bit.

I stamped the Ephemeral Crow onto some Blue Designer Paper and cut it out from the background
Lastly, I took the Trick or Treat Banner and stamped that onto mustard Designer Paper. I added some Copic Marker in the shadows to create more dimension

The Designer Paper is an older one from Graphic 45. Oldies but Goodies!!!!!








I seem to be all about the ATC Coins these days!!!! They are so fun to create!!!

I used BOO Convention as my main image for the coin after painting the chipboard in black and adding green stripes!

I shaded the Ghoulish Gaggle of Ghosties with Copic Marker and then added some
Nuvo Glow Drops in Apple Sour (Mmmm sounds like a Martini in the making!)

Here is what it looks like in the dark!
