Saturday Fun in my Craftroom with Brutus Monroe Stamps

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. Today was a fun and crafty day. Of course it is always a good day when I get crafty. 
Today I pulled out my Brutus Monroe Bag and had some fun creating the three cards in this post for their current design team call. I have other projects I could have  used, but wanted to use cards that were mine, not from one of the many classes I have completed with them. 

Using Christopher's Shoes Clear Stamp Set, along with dies from my stash. 
I used the copic colors BG11 and BG13 for the builk of the shoes, along with RV14 for the laces. C0 was used for shadowing on the rubber toe and soles. I did stamp using Mement o Tuxedo Black.
The Ornament was cuting used a die set from GinaK Designs. The filler is MicroBeads from a Brutus Monroe Staycation Class. The sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Clair in Nocturne and embossed using Clear embossing powder. 

This card was SO FUN. I stamped out Sleepy Dino in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored using Copic Markers... the Dino Body was colored using v12, V15 and V17. Scales using G2 and G3 Pillow using Y15 & Y17. 
To do the background I used a stencil from my stash and decofoil Transfer Gel DUO, applying through the stencil. Once dry I ran it through my Gemini Jr using Lime Deco Foil. I love applying foil in his manner and it always amazes me how it works. 
I used a blender brush that had some blue ink on it already and added that to the panel that little Dino is sleeping on. I then stamped the sentiment using VersaFina Clair in Nocturne, and stamped the stars using Delicate Gold. All panels were cut using GinaK Designs Master Layout 1. A white gell pen was used to highlight various parts of the dino. Also a black glaze pen for the nasal spots and nails.

My last card here today was this fun little piggy. She is being mailed off to my granddaughter who loves Peppa Pig and after spending 2 weeks with her and her brother this summer, I really do miss her pig time. 
The piggy I colored using Copics RV10, RV13, RV14, RV21 and for the eyes I used BG05. I did use a whilte Gel Pen to high light the snout and cheeks. 
Background paper is from an older paper pad in my stash.

Falling for the Holidays 2022 Linky Party

 Hey there friends and fellow crafters. Welcome to the Falling for the Holidays 2022 Linky Party put on by the Build Your Stash Holiday Cards Design Team and many sponsors.

Today, I am bringing you the first card I made for the linky party using products by sponsor Gina K Designs. I used Gina K Onyx Black ink to stamp the images from the A Very Silly Christmas Set, this is currently only available in the Holiday Cheer Kit. The top panel of pattern paper is from Autumn Splendor and the Green panel along with the striped is from Watercolor Floral. I used Dies from Master Layouts 1 and 2 for my panels. The white Cardbase is Gina's White Heavyweight cardstock, and the black is Onyx Black layering weight. The white stripe going across the panel is the backside of one of the pattern papers, unfortunately I can not remember which. I used Adhesive Dot Runner to adhere my panels together. I use my WRMK paper trimmer for my cuts. 
Images were colored using Copics.And sentiment was stamped using Gina's Amalgam Black. 
I sure hope you have enjoyed this project today.
