Halloween Pumpkin Gnome

 Hi Everyone

There have been a couple of new releases into the Conie Fong Etsy Store this month.

Here is Pumpkin Gnome and I made a Halloween Gift Tag. (Although I will probably use it as a book mark!)  I have been playing with backgrouds and making scenes recently and thought it would be fun to see how I got on, on a smaller scale. 
 
I coloured the whole thing using Copics.  I added some stars using a Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen and then stamped in the bats which are a clear stamp from Lawn Fawn
 
I would like to enter this Gift Tag into the following Challenges 



Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and share this Tag with me.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  Hope to see you again soon.

Purply Abominable

 Hi Everyone

I am here today to share this card I have made using a Clear Stamp Yes a Clear Stamp!!!!  I have put my big girl pants on and bought two sets of C.C. Designs clear stamps.  I just loved the designs and as they weren't available as digis and I really wanted them I wasn't left with much choice lol!  Clear stamps are way out of my comfort zone and when they arrived I couldn't get a clear image which is one of the reasons I do not like using them in the first place but I decided to treat myself to the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform and I am pleased to say that I managed a perfectly stamped image!

This character is one from the Abominable Set and as C.C. Designs are in USA I purchased from one of their UK Outlets called Crafty Purple Frog 
 
I used an Altenew dot stencil and distress ink to add the dotty border down the side.

Definitely Too Cute To Spook

 Hi Everyone

I have been getting into Halloween card making a little earlier than I normally do and I blame Sweet November Stamps.  They decided to start releasing their Halloween Digis the last couple of weeks and they are really great.  This image is called Flutterbee - Drusilla and she was the freebie with the August Newsletter.  Never fear though you can now buy her in the store
 
She may be a little vampire but she is Definitely Too Cute To Spook.

She comes with 2 Cute Bat Friends and I have also used the Owl from the Spooky Tree Scene Builder and one of the Gravestones that comes with Willamina the Wraith 

I have coloured the whole scene using Copics and then added a few extra bats in the sky using a clear stamp from Lawn Fawn Tiny Halloween.  The sentiment is a clear stamp from MFT

Today is the start of this months challenge over at Creative Craft Cottage 
 

The theme for this month is Anything BUT Square.  We do not have a sponsor for this challenge but we will still be choosing a Winner and Top Spots and you can win a badge for your blog!

For my DT card I have used this cute elf called Candy Elf by Alicia Bel This was a freebie image in an event at DigiMojo Facebook Group a couple of months ago.  I decided to create a heart easel card.  It has been a while since I made an easel card.

I used a heart die by Little B Designs and cut the layers both white and pink polka dot.  I cut the snow hill from hammered card using an MFT scalloped wavy border die.  The snowflakes I also cut from hammered card and they are cut with a Tattered Lace die.  The sentiment I typed on the laptop at the time of printing the image and I finished by adding some clear pink gems to the centres of the snowflakes

Scarecrow Sally

 Hi Everyone

I am beyond excited to share this post with you.  If you are a regular to my blog you will know that I have been learning backgrounds by following colouring video tutorials and techniques by Amy Young - Adventures in Colouring with Amy  Amy and her sister Tee own Sweet November Stamps and in the store you can find the cutest Digis.  They also sell clear stamps.  I tend to work with their digis they are my favourites.

On Thursday I woke up to an invite to be the Guest Designer for today's new release which is called Something to Crow About.  It is an Autumn/Fall themed release and you can find scarecrows, pumpkins, crows etc
 
I was so thrilled to be asked and want to thank Amy & Tee for having me. 

So the excitement was amazing I was buzzing.  The Images came through. Gorgeous Images then the PANIC. I only have two days to do this!!!   I work way in advance if I can normally.   And the images are Scarecrows. I have never seen a Scarecrow other than watching Worzel Gummidge or Wizard of Oz as a child. So I had to do a bit of research see how to colour these beauties up lol!

Anyway after some late night colouring I managed to pull a project out the bag and I was pleased with how it turned out and I found out I can actually work under a bit of pressure lol!

And tomorrow I have another one to share because I actually managed two!!

So for this card I used Sally StrawmanPumpkins, Corn and I put it together with the Pumpkin Patch Scene Builder Stamp and coloured it all using Copics and a clear star gelly roll pen
