Featured Artist Week: Olivia's View

Hello Everyone,

I am checking in today with a new card I did with one of the beautiful images from Ching Chou Kuik's called The Moth.  The sentiment comes with the rubber stamp set and love it so much as well.

I colored the image with my Copics. I used my Copics to make the background as well on the image and added some Liquid Pearl. The vine background was created with a stamp and used two different ink colors.

Featured Artist Week: Lina's View

The very first stamps I bought from Sweet Pea Stamp, was by Ching Chou Kuik. And I never looked back. I absolutely love and adore her images. Today I've made a coloring video, using my Copics and one of her gorgeous images.



The Copics I used to color are:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13
Leaves: G82, G94, G99
Fawn: E40, E41, E42, E43
Bunny: E21, E23, E25
Ears: R01, R02
Mushrooms: E40, E41, E42, E43, R24
Hair: E97, YR14, YR18, E19
Eyes: B00, B02, B04, B18
Hood: W1, W3, W5, V91, V93, V95, E71, E74, E77
Background: BG0000, BG000, C1


Since autumn is closing in, and it's so fitting with the name of the stamp, I decided to keep everything in warm orange and green colors. No special fold to the card this time.



The image is Autumn Trio by Ching Chou Kuik. Available in the Sweet Pea Stamp store as rubber and digi.



Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Lynette asked me to be part of the GDT...
And yes.. I would love to..
It is good to be home a little...

I have made a MDF hanger, using ©Charity Dauenhauer's Pearl- DIGI
And I decided to do something totally out of my comfort zone.
I made a Mixed Media Piece with the 
gorgeous digi stamp from Charity Dauenhauer.
I colored her up with promarkers and Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.


I played with some gesso, molding paste and some sprays.
I just added some flowers, seashells and more seastuff.

It was fun to play and to be a GDT.

Thank you and maybe I'll see you around!

Big hugs, Sylvia xxx

Featured Artist Week: Tera's View

 Hallo,
   Our featured artist this week is Ching Chou Kuik and I have to say that making the choice of which image to use was a tough one - I have soooo many of her images - the first images I ever purchased from Sweet Pea Stamps were from this wonderful artist!!!
  I decided to use one of my newer images called 'Night Dreamer'
  I colored her with prismacolor pencils and cut her out with a Spellbinders die. I edged the main image with a gold metallic pen and added some teal colored flowers, a green ribbon and a gold corner sticker. The base of the card is a dark teal.
  I had such fun coloring her.
Have a great day!!!

Featured Artist - Jane's view. Ching Chou-Kuik, Pink Peony

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps for our Artist Week where the whole team are using images by Ching Chou-Kuik.  I have chosen to work with the image Pink Peony


I started off by colouring the image with Promarkers.  Once coloured I fuzzy cut the image, not an easy image to fussy cut with the strands of hair but I did not want any white paper on this card.

Promarkers used

I added Liquid Pearls to the fan and parts of the clothing.
Next I covered my card base with some gorgeous paper I bought about 4 years ago (as it is a favourite  I don't use it often <g>).  I recently bought a beautiful die - Joanna Sheen - Large Filigree Fan which I thought would be perfect for this card.  I cut the die 4 times to make the fan shape using the same cream card I used for my card blank.  Two ideas in my head, either cut the corner away as I have shown here or remove the whole section behind the fan.
After some thought I decided on my second thought and removed all the card blank area from behind the fan.
Onto the tag.  For this I used a Just Right stamp which I stamped in green and then used clear embossing powder.  This was cut out using a Spellbinder circle die.  Next I cut some of my beautiful paper in a slightly larger Spellbinder circle die and air brushed it with my Peony Rose Promarker. The final die used for the background is from Sizzix called For The Record 2
Finally I airbrushed some white organza flowers and also a piece of organza ribbon.
 Finally I assembled the card.  Inside view
 Front view.

Ingredients
  • Image -  Pink Peony by Ching Chou-Kuik
  • Promarkers
  • Dies - Joanna Sheen - Large Filigree Fan, Spellbinders Circles and Sizzix - For The Record 2
  • Backing paper - can't remember now sorry
  • Ribbon, flowers and organza ribbon from my stash
Thank you for stopping by and hope you have a happy crafting day ahead :)

Pumpkin Kitty

Here's an awesome image from Sweet Pea stamps artist Charmaine Flannery called Pumpkin Kitty.  I totally loved this image as soon as it came out.  I am sure many of you know how fond I am of Halloween. I had to do up this image in an orange/pink combo.
I added a Sweet Pea sentiment Happy Halloween from Halloween Sheet 1.  Here's a closeup of the stamp I used for this card.

Be sure and check out this artist stamps in the Sweet Pea store.  If you are getting ready for the holiday, Sweet Pea has a bunch of Halloween/Fall theme stamps.  I hope to be making lots of them as it's definitely my favorite topic.

Cheers, Holley

Conie Fong-Mother and Baby Girl

Hello everyone. I decided to  add some new baby stash cards in my pile since many of my friends and family are back into baby fever again. This image by Conie Fong-Mother and Baby Girl is just perfect for this.




I colored the image with my Copics. The paper is actually a mixed of papers from MME paper stash I have. I have some preprinted vellum pieces in my stash and thought it would be nice to include them for a sentiment. Used my Spellbinders for the image as well.

Copics used:

Hair: 79,77,71,70
Skin: E11, E00,
Mom Dress: R85,83,81
Baby Dress: V21,20
Touch of W3 for the grey trim.
