I colored Brentwood Owl with my Tombow markers and even gave him some colorful sprinkles around. Don't you think he's SO cute sitting on that pumpkin? The papers I used is by Amy Tangerine  and the sentiment is by Love Cynthia stamps. Oh, and I also added some washi and enamel dots :)

I first stamped the flowers with a malted milk ink for the background, then stamped the girl with the coffee cup and adhered her with some foam adhesive to pop her up! I colored her with some Copic markers and then added some little bling to add some shine -- coz every gal deserves some glitter :)

Nature Fern card with Unity Stamp

Happy mid-week!
I am sharing a card over The Unity Stamp blog and I made this CAS card using the stamps from Unity's August Kit of the Month "Open your soul"

So, for this card, I am inspired by NATURE! 

In our modern life and society, we're always stucked behind our screens (phones included!) and I find that I hardly have time to just sit down and appreciate God's creations.

ScrappyScrappy: Nature Fern card with Unity Stamp #scrappyscrappy #unitystampco #card #cardmaking #papercraft #stamp #stamping #nature

I inked the leaves with two different shades of green inks and created this scene where the sun is shining the brightest in the middle. I added a strip of glitter gold at the borders of the card.

Oh, and the sentiment is just perfect for this card! (Also found in the kit)

Let's just take time and enjoy nature.

Here's my first card using some watercolor and vellum.

ScrappyScrappy: BIG Blog Hop + [NEW VIDEOS] with Unity Stamp - Planted #scrappyscrappy #unitystampco #card #cardmaking #stamp #stamping #papercraft #watercolor #vellum

I have stamped the Planted kit onto some cardsstock then colored the image in using my Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real brush pens. For the diluted watercolor look, just spritz some water and dip your marker slightly into the water to paint. So far, I had no problems with this so --- guess it should be ok? :) I've also stamped the sentiment on some vellum to get the subtle see through effect.

For my next card, it's this cute owl!

ScrappyScrappy: BIG Blog Hop + [NEW VIDEOS] with Unity Stamp - Happy Owl'oween #scrappyscrappy #unitystampco #stamp #stamping #card #cardmaking #halloween #papercraft #copic #distressink

Although I don't celebrate Halloween, this cute owl from the Happy Owl'oween kit is too cute to be missed. I colored him in using my Copic markers then created a circle see through card using my Kaisercraft nested circle dies -- which I had distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink {mustard seed}. Then I added a piece of acetate for the see through portion. I also painted some stars using the Zig Clean color pens.

Since Christmas is just a few months away, it's never too early to start making holiday cards!

ScrappyScrappy: BIG Blog Hop + [NEW VIDEOS] with Unity Stamp - Love Bug Christmas #scrappyscrappy #unitystampco #card #cardmaking #stamp #stamping #christmas #holiday #lovebug #wreath

I have stamped and colored the Love Bug Christmas with my Copics. Then I wanted to make my own Christmas wreath. So I took the Die-namites Summer Branch die and cut it into smaller pieces to form my wreath. :)

I colored the One Little Latte coffee mug with my Copic and then added some Freckled Fawn enamel dots.
