Gobble all the Time

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today using this Gobble stamp.  It's so doggone cute!!



Since I wanted some dimension, I stamped it twice and fussy cut one of the images. 


I colored both with images Copic Markers.  Then used glue dots to place the fussy cut image atop the main image.  It gives it just the right amount of dimension.  Then I added ink around the panel before matting it with cardstock.
 

The panel was then added to a striped card.  The phrase was also matted and added to the corner of the card.






Thanks for stopping by today.

A Little Bit of Christmas ....


Hello - it's Helen here today to share a little bit of Christmas inspiration with you.

I've made a card using the very cute 'Snowman 1' digi - isn't he a cheerful looking guy?!

I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some glitter glue to his hat.  The sentiment I've used is a peel off.

Keep checking back here for more inspiration from the Design Team and I'll see you later in the month with some more Christmas inspiration.

Gobble Til You Wobble and Wobble and Wobble

Gobble, gobble!  Who doesn't indulge just a little too much on Thanksgiving?  I saw Sunsational Stamps adorable Tom Turkey image and I instantly thought of him wobbling, so I grabbed one of those Action Wobblers, printed out Tom Turkey and got coloring.  I used alcohol markers on him, I did not take the time to shade him as I think he is very cartoony and whimsical looking so the solid coloring fits the mood.  I cut him out leaving a slight border and added the wobbler to the back.

I wanted to make a raised top panel so I die cut a 3" circle centering it horizontally, but cutting it more toward the top half on a piece of brown patterned paper from my stash.  I also die cut a piece of fun foam at the same time to use that to raise the panel. I die cut a dark brown twig wreath from one of my Elizabeth Craft Designs dies to frame out the opening and my wobbly turkey!  I added Queen & Co Orange Slice gems to the wreath.  I made a GOBBLE sentiment block using some of my Authentique letters.  I adhered this top panel to the cream-colored card base, added my wobbly turkey and moved on to the inside.



I die cut 3 colorful feathers from a Studio Calico die that my sweet and generous daughter gifted me from her stash.  I layered the dark brown paper, brown patterned paper and an additional cream piece that I had printed 'til you Wobble on.  I added the feathers and added these layers to the inside and called it done!
