Humphrey in Daddy’s shoes

Another little Humphrey image for today. This time it’s little Humphrey wearing his daddy’s shoes.

The image is from the new Humphrey’s Corner stamps that were launched on Friday by Crafter’s Companion and it is called “Father’s day”. The stamp plate includes the main image of Humphrey, 3 sentiments (“Happy Father’s Day”, “Special Dad” and “For my daddy”), the little shoes stamp and the tie stamp. So you have all the embelishments to create a father’s day card, a birthday card or any occassion card with little Humphrey.

Father's Day

The papers are from Humphrey’s Corner papercrafting CD-ROM and I have used an insert as a backing paper. I cut the topper with a Nestabilities die and mounted it on some blue card before adding it in the centre of the insert. I used a Martha Steward punch for the corners and then mounted them all together on another backing paper from the CD-ROM.

The main image as well as the two embelishments were stamped on Neenah card and coloured with the Spectrum Noir pens. If you don’t have yours already then you might just make it if you run to the Crafter’s Companion website (just click on the name of the pens above). Leann was demonstrating them on Create and Craft at the weekend and they were very popular!

Have fun crafting!

Baby Humphrey… Not long untill launch now!

Good morning all!

Looking out my window it doesn’t look like such a great day (at the moment) but I imagine you won’t be looking out the window for long as the new S.W.A.L.K. and Humphrey stamps are out today!

Just thought I’d quickly give you a little peek of the “New Baby” stamp from Humphrey’s Corner range by Crafter’s Companion.

I decided to dress him in blue for a baby boy but you could decide to go for pink or turquoise, yellows or anything you can imagine! That is the fun in playing with stamps and using the Spectrum Noir pens! Look out for the shows on Create & Craft this weekend where Leann will be bringing the Speccies on Saturday 30th July 10am, 2pm, 6pm and Sunday 31st July11am and 3pm. I am really looking forward to that to get more tips!

For this little guy I have used the 3 lightest greys (CG0.5, CG1 and CG3) from the Cool Greys set as he is a baby and I wanted to make him look all bright and new. For his blue towel I used the 3 lightest blues (144, 185, 183) from the Blues set. I used CG1 around the whole stamped image to give him a little bit of shadow and added a touch of glitter on the folds with the Sakura Quickie Glue pen. The little image of the two stuffed animals along with the sentiment comes with the stamp so you don’t need to look for any matching elements! With a light blue Sakura gel pen I added some faux stitching on the backing paper – both backing papers are from Humphrey’s Corner CD-Rom. The punch is by Martha Steward (not sure about the name…) – it comes with corner punches as well but I didn’t use them this time.

Let me know what you think – I always love reading comments!

P.S. It’s Friday!!!!!! 😀

Just a little bit of Humphrey – A little sneak peek before bed time…

The new Humphrey stamps will be out in less than 12 hours but I thought just before I go to bed I will give you another little sneak peek.

This time it is Humphrey (as promised). I really think this stamp makes such a lovely wedding card.The stamp is called “Special day”.

I went with a black suit for Mr. and only some touches of grey and pinks and blues on the flowers of Mrs. The papers are from Humphrey’s Corner CD-Rom – I picked some light colours so it doesn’t draw the attention from the main image.

All colouring was done with my lovely Spectrum Noir pens. Make sure you tune in on Create & Craft on Saturday and Sunday to see Leann and of course the pens!

Must go to bed now – one more sleep to go until the launch!

Love, Nandia
