Vanilla Arts "Baby Pumpkin"


Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!



I have said this before but I may have a small weakness for all things fall.
I love pumpkins, fall leaves, cooler weather, and all fall colors.

This Baby Pumpkin image from Vanilla Arts is simply amazing!  I love
the curly stem and the fantastic divisions in the pumpkins skin.  

Vanilla Arts runs online coloring classes and this is the first class I have taken with them.
I will definitely be going back for more.  There is one with a fall maple leaf I think
I might have to snag next.  Amy Shulke does an amazing job breaking down all the
steps and really making these beautiful images easy to color.

This is my first project really using colored pencils over my copic markers.
I don't have a lot of experience with colored pencils but I am really looking
forward to working more with them since I really love how they 
complement each other.  It is going to take a lot of practice but I like
trying something new.  I love the depth you can add with the colored pencils.




Supply List:



I am very happy with this pumpkin and I am going to be framing it to hang on
my wall in my craft room.  I am very excited to try more online classes by Vanilla Arts.
Thank you Amy Shulke for a fantastic class.  Come join us at Passionate Paper 
Creations and Friends Facebook page to see other design team's work from Vanilla Arts.

The Stamp Doctor


Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

Today I am sharing with you my first shaker card!  This was really fun to make.  All the
dies I used on this card are from The Stamp Doctor!  She has a fantastic 
line of dies to choose from.  

I used 3 different die sets to create my shaker card.  The first Die Set is called 
A2 Card Layers #1.  I used this to create by background layers for the card.
This die set makes it so easy to create many different size mattings.  The second Die 
set that I used is called Circle Frame Set 1.  I thought this set would be perfect to create the 
shaker part of my card.  I used this set to cut out my image, my craft foam to 
make a dimensional frame, a cute little frame, and my acetate.  This set comes with 
6 different circle shapes which you can use to make all kinds of solid shapes and frames.
The dies cut beautifully through the craft foam and the acetate.  The third die set
is called Tags #1 - Stitched.  I used this set to frame my sentiment.

I love fall leaves so I chose to use an image and sentiment from Penny Black.
The clear stamp set is called Grateful.  This stamp set comes with 4 beautiful 
images and 2 fantastic sentiments.



Copic Markers Used:

Leaves: YG17, Y13, Y15, Y19, YR23, YR24, YR27

this image today but really you could use just a few and it would come out just as
