C.C. Designs~Meoples Meow-lloween Kitties

Today I'm sharing my latest card for C.C. Designs using one of the new stamps and dies from the August Release called Meoples Meow-lloween Kitties! I think this kitty set is so stinkin' CUTE!! It also has a coordinating die for purchase HERE. I stamped the images on Neenah White Cardstock and colored them with Copics. The pumpkin and fence were stamped on corrugated paper.
 
Copics:
Dracula Kitty: N4, R20, Black
Mummy Kitty: N4, R20, T1, T4
Ghost Kitty: T1, T4, Colorless Blender

I used this Halloween frame from my stash and colored all the elements on the frame with Sharpies. Then I added the background paper and popped some of the Meow-lloween Kitties on it to create this cute scene.
 Now be sure to head over to the C.C. Designs Store and snatch up these adorable stamps and amazing dies! They definitely need to be a part of your collection!

Hugs,
Rosie

LDRS Creative-Rosie Bear Altered Frame

TGIF everyone! It's Rosie here to share one of my altered frames using this adorable stamp from CandiBean called Rosie Bear! This stamp along with the dies I used on the frame were recently released in the LDRS Store!! Sometimes I like to take a break from the Copic coloring. So to change things up, I actually stamped the image on different pieces of cardstock and patterned paper and paper-pieced the entire image. The darker shading was done with chalk. :)


I love buying these cheap 8x8 wood frames from Walmart or Michaels and altering them. It doesn't take much to transform them into something completely different....just some 2"x2" squares and 1.25" x 2" rectangles.


 The sentiment is from the Just Because Sentiment Set. I used the Majestic Rectangle Labels Die Set to make the frame around the sentiment. The larger frame that borders the sentiment is the Majestic Frame Die. It's so gorgeous!!


 I hope you enjoyed my altered frame! It's amazing how a plain piece of wood can be transformed by using various paper products. Be sure to check out all the amazing stamps, dies, and embossing folders in the LDRS Store!!

Hugs,
Rosie

I stamped my image on Cryogen White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, and colored her with Copics.

The sentiment is from the LDRS Creative Just Because Sentiment Set. I cut the sentiment out using the LDRS Creative Gilded Oval Labels Die. I added the LDRS Creative Gilded Doily Die under my cut out image, and the white embossed panel is from LDRS Creative Gilded Embossing Folders. The decorative paper is from Penny Black Golden Moments 6x6 Paper Pad. The ribbon and pearls were from my stash.
