Oldies but Goodies

Today I pulled out an old C.C. Designs stamp to show you how cute it is.  :)  I used Swiss Pixie Country Lula.  I love her little basket of eggs.  I have chickens so I was excited to get this cute image out today and play.  I recently had someone ask about the red hair.  I use E13, E17, E18 and E19 to do the red. I usually start with the E18 then use the E19 and fill in with the other two.  I end with E18 to darken up what gets lightened.  I also paper pieced her dress, adding some shading on the plain aqua part.

We are dusting off old images at All That Scraps on Friday's and revisiting them.  You can see more at the All That Scraps Blog.

I hope you have a great Friday and your weekend is relaxing and enjoyable.  :)  See you next week.

Wednesday Review ~ Sweet November Stamps

Hi, I hope you are having a great day!  Did you enjoy the Birthday Bash Blog Hop yesterday?  If you missed it you can view it here.  <---- 

Today I have a card for you using the new Sweet November August release stamps, Pumpkin Fun. It was fun creating this project and I think it would be a cute little card to give one of the grandkids for Halloween.  I used a Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Stripe Impressabilities template to do the background on the right side.  I inked up the template with brown kraft ink and then ran it though my Wizard.  I used a heat tool to set the ink.  Easy and impressive looking!

I hope you enjoyed a look back at a cute stamp set from our August release today.  Come again soon!  Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities.

August Review ~ Laugh Pumpkin

It is so fun to be working on Fall stuff.  The heat of summer is getting old.  I am ready to see the fall colors again.  Today for the review we were supposed to use the new August stamps that Christine illustrated.  She did a great job and it was hard to choose which on I wanted to do.  I finally settled on Laugh Pumpkin.  She is so cute all dressed up like a pumpkin. 

Make sure to check out the other projects we posted today at the All That Scraps blog.  There is some yummyness over there.  Also the Wednesday challenge blog has some cute stuff for you today.  Go play along!
