Challenge Time with Paper Nest Dolls and Vampire Owen

Hello everyone, it's challenge time Paper Nest Dolls, and I have chosen to create a fun Halloween card with Vampire Owen (I know, I'm a little late for Halloween lol!)

He is so cute, and I had him printed up for a while and sitting in my pile of "want to color" images, so I finally decided to get him done :)

Come on over to the Paper Nest Dolls challenge blog and join us, the theme is always "Anything Goes"!

Friday Feature: Jenninfer McGuire #2

Hello all, I have the second feature card today CASE-ing Jennifer McGuire's card from this video :)

 I changed it up again, and used less elements to create the card. It makes for an elegant CAS card :)  Again I used the Altenew Peony Scrolls stamp set, and heat embossed with white embossing powder, and then colored with Gansai Tambi watercolors.I added the sentiment, then some lace and adhesive backed pearls for a clean look.

I am really enjoying this Feature Friday posts.  It gives me a chance to create and learn from some of my favorite card artists!  Next up...Sandy Allnock!  SWOON :)

Firday Feature: Jennifer McGuire!

Hello everyone :)  I am starting a new Friday Feature series today where I CASE some of my favorite card artists!  Today I will start with the fabulous Jennifer McGuire of Jennifer McGuire Ink.

I created this card by CASE-ing Jennifer's card in this video.  However, I did change things up a bit :)

I colored this card using my Gansai Tambi watercolors :)  I stamped and clear embossed the background with the  Heidi Swapp Mixed Media background stamp, and the sentiment is the Sweet Wishes die and stamps from My Creative Time.  I love the Altenew Peony Scrolls stamp set, it is just gorgeous!

In two weeks I will use the same stamp set and video from Jennifer McGuire, to create another card, a little bit different yet again :)  I will be taking a break next Friday to post a DT project for Quick Creations :)

See you soon!
