Chalkboard Balloons for Halloween

Clearly Besotted has been creating little balloon images for every major holiday – see them all HERE. And see the new halloween one in this video!

I got out my pencils; at first I was going to use white paper, but realized it would be “spookier” for halloween on black paper. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

Color a cozy fireplace

Since we’re good friends by now…I thought cozying up to a fireplace together would be fun this week. Rudolph with a present on top just cried out for it with that sweet sentiment. Grab a cup of something warm to drink and settle in to watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

One final giveaway is posted over on my blog – if you’d like to try coloring this cozy card, go leave a comment to qualify to win, and I’ll announce a winner on Sunday!Sandy Allnock Rudolph with a present on top

Simple Silhouetted Background – and mini action wobbles!

When Art Impressions sent me a package of stamps from their latest releases – this had to be the first one inked up. That pig! LOL! Love that he’s a little yellow bee!

Silhouetted Background – and mini action wobbles!

This is one of those grouped stamps that doesn’t need to be masked – the three little images are all in one stamp. The “wobbly” sections – torsos and heads of the pig and duck – are separate stamps, and there are matching dies to go with them! I’ve been wanting to make a card with a really really simple background that everyone can handle – and this complex image seemed a good time to do it.

Meet the puppies! (and Yule Dogs II) (and winner!)

Meet the puppies! (and Yule Dogs II) (and winner!)

 

Give a pet a forever home through Petfinder…so many critters are in need of good homes! If I had a big enough house, I’d have taken tons of the kitties I saw on the website. 🙂

Lots of folks wanted a little more on my new babies….so here you go! (They also now have their own Instagram account!) Watch the video below or click over HERE to my second channel to see it in HD.

Yule Dogs II: call for dogs!

If you’re interested in participating in the Yule Dogs II project, send me an email with a link to a minute or two of your dog sleeping. Watch Yule Dogs I, shoot video of your own dog, and email a link to your footage by Dec 1 2016. A few tips:

  1. Needn’t be puppy-age. All dogs welcome!
  2. Shoot a nice calm sleeping video. Dogs can twitch, yawn, lick lips, etc, just no rambunctious playtime.
  3. A simple setting works best. It can be close up or a little far, but make sure we see the dog well and  visual distractions are minimal.
  4. Add holiday things to the scene if you’d like – packages, holiday toys, etc – bonus!
  5. You can put a holiday bandana or bow on your dog, to add to the Christmas atmosphere.
  6. Upload your movie file to a dropbox or other service where you can send me a link to it – not the file itself.
  7. Deadline Dec 1st so I have time to edit it all together to launch the week before Christmas!

Those who follow me on Instagram might have seen my painting this week of the puppies – and no, I didn’t have them sit still like this in one photo to work from, I had to work from separate shots. One pic is too much to hope for right now. Ha! This was painted in Daniel Smith Watercolors.

Diecut a Round Window Card

If you’ve tuned in to my YouTube channel much, you’ll know how much I love Clearly Besotted stamps…and Stephanie, the owner, blesses me with the new releases to feed my addiction. (Thank you, Stephanie!) These adorable little mice had to go to an ice skating party – and I’ve been wanting to do a little partial-diecutting anyway, so let’s get to it without further ado! (Mistake included in the video…along with puppies!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

There are lots of stamps you can do this partial die-cutting technique with – but these skaters are so cute, you might not be able to resist, eh?
