Sami Stamps Halloween Girls Release ...

Good morning. Today I'm pretty excited to share my first project as
a Designer for Sami Stamps ... The Halloween Girls Release!
Sami made some Spooktacular stamps just in time to create
last minute cards for Halloween.


This beauty is called Spider Hugs, and she was so much FUN to color
up for a Halloween card. However, I almost didn't make one.
 I can see her being used for many different occasions ...
birthday, missing you, support, thinking of you, etc.

I printed off several copies of Spider Hugs, and colored with my trusty Copic
 Markers. Did a bit of fussy cutting and layering. Created the dotted 
background with Copic Multi-liners Country Brush collection.

Copics: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20 (skin) E13, E15, E17, E19, YR21 (hair)
BV08, V222, V25, V28 (dress) YR65, YR68, E97, G05, G07, G09 (tights)
W3, W5, W7, W9, R29, R39 (spider)

Let's have a look at all of the amazing stamps being released today!

Heartfelt ...

Good morning! I'm hosting the Artbymiran Blog today.

In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I've created a
card featuring the beautiful Heartfelt stamp that
Mi Ran created.


I love that Heartfelt looks so classic. She represents all of us.
Copic Markers were used to color her. Once done I fussy cut
her out and layered her on my CAS design.

All of the sentiments that I used are from the
 SRM Express Yourself/Courage (#42032) Sticker.


We would love for you to become a follower of the Artbymiran Blog

Zombie Time at Love to Create ...

This week we have a "Color Inspired"
Black with Orange + Lime and/or Purple
and our Sponsor
 is ...
Simply Betty Stamps


This fun stamp is called Zombie Dolly Rio. When you purchase her you
will get 4 different versions ... Framed Version (which I chose)
Non-framed version with and without eyes, and just the Frame.

Copic Markers were used to color Zombie Dolly Rio, once done I fussy
 cut out the frame, and then layered this beauty on my CAS background.
 I added black enamel dots around the frame, drew some squiggly
 lines to make them look like spiders and then add some eyes
with White Opal liquid pearls.

I'm here for you ...

This week our Challenge is "2 Dies & Sparkle" and
our Sponsor
 is ...
The Stamping Chef


This sexy lady is Miss Smexy.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
I decided to create a card for this occasion.

Copic Markers were used to color Miss Smexy.
I use several dies for my design ...
Nestabilities Oval & Scalloped Oval Dies
 and Whimsy Build a Banner Die.

My sparkle comes from Michael's Trim, and a Clear Star
Gelly Roll Pen that I used on the heart on her shirt,
bikini bottoms, and eyelids.

The sentiment comes from A Muse Studio's
Fight Like A Girl stamp set.
It is a FREE set that I got a couple of years ago,
and A Muse Studio is still offering the set for
free again! You can read all about it here!


Make sure you hop on over to the Love to Create Blog for all of the 
challenge details, and to be inspired by the amazing projects
created by the rest of the designers made.
Until next time ... Enjoy!
