Stampscapes cards

I haven't been stamping  about 2 years, and there is a place around here that sells stamps and she does the most beautiful work and she does it with all ink, her name is Linda and her husband does great work to. Well I have wanted to try some of these stamps from "Stampscapes" and try them with colored pencils instead. These are some of the first ones I ever did. Not to bad for the first try I don't think. A few of the other ones I had done went to her shop, so I don't have pictures of those. I used waterproof ink and colored pencils and mineral spirits to blend and I also glitter them with stickles. Hope you like them.

Fluffles and House Mouse

I love these stamps, the first is fluffles w lady bugs and the other is a house mouse, I colored them with colored pencils and used mineral spirits to blend the colors.

House Mouse "Fragrant Showers"

I fell in love with this HM stamp when I saw it, I had to get it, I love lilacs and these little mice. What I did with this one is colored it with colored pencils and used "turpenoid" to blend the colors, this is the same as using gamsol odorless mineral spirits, just a different brand. I made 2 of these images and one I cut the jar of lilacs out and the mouse on top out of one and I used pop ups to bring it out. I inked the edges and also used a corner punch for the back ground, and skittles for decoration. I hope you like it.

Winter Layout

Well I did this layout awhile ago for a challenge on the Cricut Board. The challenge was to use the cricut cartridge Zooballoo. Well I bought this cartridge because of the penguins, I kept seeing great cards made with them that I had to have this cartridge. So this is the layout that I came up with. I used a Snow Marker for the snow. If you haven't used one, this is what you do, you put it where you want it when it dries you use your heat gun and it will raise up. the background is also from zooballo its on page 130in the book. This layout was a lot of fun.

A gentle Breeze layout

These Scrapbook pages is also a kit from "SCRAP"EM easy. I love the bears and the pin wheels on this, and of course I did change it from what they did. I Think it came out pretty good.

Bath Scrapbook Pages

These pages where from a kit I bought  at " SCRAP'EM easy". I love they're designs I know they have change how they sell now, they sell with and without the materials and downloads, it used to be a monthly club, but they have changed it. There is  a lot of talent over at Scrap'em easy you should check them out. I did my kit   a little different though, I changed the layout because I wanted bigger photos and made it my own, also I used metallic thread around it and stickles of course (I love bling ). Hope you like them.

Halloween Scrapbook Pages

This is the second 2 page  layouts I did with the new Cricut cartridges  "Happy Hauntings and Oct.31st."  What a great cart. I love how this layout came out(its better in person). I glitter the grass and ghost and frames and other parts with Stickles glitter glue. I took One day to cut all the embellishment's for this one and another layout I did below and put the embellishment's together as I cut them out. Then the next day I did the layouts. I hope you like them.
This is the First Layout:
