Happy Valentines day, early! I have a fun project to share today using Autumn Happiness which I converted from an autumn theme to a Valentine theme. I did this by stamping the image in light pink so I could color over the leaves and change the shape. I also added a few Wee accessory stamps in light gray – which is also easy to color over.
I first stamped Autumn Happiness in light pink. Then in light gray, I stamped the two accessory Wee stamps which came as a gift for placing an order. They were so cute, I wanted to add them to something and this guy’s tail was a perfect perch. From this point, I started to color the leaves in heart shapes.
After I colored some hearts over the larger leaves, then I colored the rest by filling it in with smaller leaves. Lastly, I added some white accents and started to color the rest of the image. I even added a little creative color placement on the tail and carried the white stripe around from his belly.
Here are the Copic markers I used on Autumn Happiness:

RV11, 23, 14, 34, BV23

YG17, G94, YG97
B04, BG01, B00, 0000, BV20
C4, 3, 1, BV20
This cute stamp is Oak Tree Girl from Wee/Whimsy Stamps. I had fun coloring this one and adding all the autumn leaves. I’ve been looking for robins when I travel because I remember them from when I was a kid. I don’t see them here in Texas or maybe they are just seasonal. Most of the birds that I colored in the past were blue so this was a nice change.
The face is actually the best part for enjoyment. I love to give extra details and to brighten the eyes so this shows a comparison of a before and after. The original eyes were used for the pupils and I built up the rest around them with Copics.
I’d like to share this in the following challenges . . .
I found some mustache brads at the craft store and thought they would be cute to use on a project. They’ve been sitting on my desk for a while until I found the right one . . . Mr. Frosty from Wee Stamps was perfect. I colored the image as normal. Then when colored in the drop shadows, I positioned the mustache and added a shadow there too. Then I poked a hole in the paper and added the brad.
I like how it turned out and I like the end result of coloring. It was a fun image to color. :). Of course, I made a card from it, however, I don’t like how it turned out. I think it was the pattern paper or it might be because strayed from my default layout. Either way, I’m sure it’s just me and that any anyone would be happy to receive the card this season.
Some projects just take longer than others and this one is one of those. I started this long before Halloween but decided I needed to finished it even though Halloween was over. I have another project that I started for Thanksgiving too but it will be late as well. LOL Anyway, this is Hazel from Wee Stamps in rubber from Whimsy Stamps and also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I went with a light gray color to stamp her in then used greens and blacks to color her. For a splash of color I used the orange as a backdrop. Finally I did some doodles as a border and made it into a card. Hope you like her even though she’s a tad out of season… buy hay… I guess witches need to live through the seasons too. ;D
I had some fun shopping for new Halloween paper over the weekend and picked up the Witches Brew Jillibean Soup mini pad and couldn’t wait to use it. The image I used on this project is Batty Boo from Whimsy Stamps (and also available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps) which was colored with Prisimacolor Pencils. The paper I used was a little too smooth so I was a bit limited on the coloring but even so it didn’t turn out too bad. These little critters are cute, whatever they are, and fun to color. 😀 Hope you like it too and have a wonderful rest of your weekend!
Sharing is caring and thinking about sharing this project lifts me up a bit. It’s like getting a little hug from y’all. ♡ the stamp I used is I Love You Slow Much which is a Wee Stamp rubber stamp from Whimsy and also one that is available in my shope at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I love how cuddly this hug is.
￼ I stamped it in gray and colored it in Copic markers to match the papers. I also used paint to color the chipboard from Make it Crafty. Then I used embellishment I had at hand to finish the card.
Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful weekend!
