Hop to Stop

h2s badge

I’m joining fellow paper crafters on the Hop to Stop hosted by Becca Cruger to raise awareness of the issue of domestic violence.  I’m a little late to the hop but there are still a couple of days left.  I saw the hop information on my friend Vicki’s blog (https://stampsmiles.blogspot.com/) and wanted to join in. One of my BFF’s was a victim of domestic abuse years ago – her ex-husband even spent many years in prison because of his abuse.

Hop to Stop Coneflowers

My card today features a digi image from Power Poppy – they have such great floral images.  These cone flowers were printed onto Crafter’s Companion SNUSP (Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium white cardstock), my go-to CS for Copic coloring, which is what I did here. I paired the purple flowers with plaid paper and a Grape Jelly card base from My Favorite Things. I am going to give this card to my friend “just because”.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!




Have a Spooktacular Halloween

Monster Bash

BOO! I couldn’t resist these little creepies (aka Monster Mash) from Lawn Fawn. Aren’t they fun?! I paired them with MFT’s Grave Situation stamps and dienamics to create this spooky scene. I created the background Halloween sky by using blending tools and Distress Inks in Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Wilted Violet. I then splattered a little water and white Gesso with a small paintbrush to get the splotchy look. The headstones and little monsters were colored with Copic markers then arranged to create a fun scene. I just love it!

This week, I’m participating in SCS’s Mix-Ability MIX196 challenge and Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge which was highlighting Lawn Fawn products. Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!
