Simon Says Stamp, Summer Cards

Last Day of Summer Hop | Summer Card Project | Adding Color with Ink

Happy last day of summer, my friends! Here is one last summertime card. I’m part of a hop with crafters who are celebrating because they are looking forward to the coming fall months or they are trying to hang on to every last precious minute of summer like me.

I created a card using a stamp set called Summer Sunshine from Simon Says Stamp. The images in this set don’t require any coloring. The colors on my card come from a few Distress Oxide Inks: Picked Raspberry, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade. I stamped my sentiment with all three inks onto a piece of white cardstock. I also stamped out a few clouds and fussy cut everything out. This was a super fast card to put together. I used a few pieces of colored cardstock, a few beads and then put everything together.

Here is my process video for this card. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Next up in the hop is the fabulous Sharon Luska!

Happy fall, everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful and healthy season!

Copic Coloring, Not 2 Shabby

Techniques for Making Your Stamps Fit Slimline Cards | Not 2 Shabby Shop Design Team Project

Hello and welcome! Today I’m sharing a few techniques for making the stamps you have in your stash that are intended for A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) sized cards fit on slimline cards. Slimline cards are all the rage lately, but a lot of our stamps were made for a smaller sized card. The stamps I’m using today fit perfectly on an A2 card but not so well on a slimline card. I’m using some fun stamps and dies from the Not 2 Shabby shop–links listed below.

I have a 10% off coupon code for you to the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Card #1: Split Image Slimline Card

On my first card I’m using a beautiful stamp set from Trinity Stamps called Blooming Bunch. I colored it in with Copic markers and then die cut it using the coordinating die. To make this fit on a slimline, I cut the image in half. I adhered one piece to the bottom left side of my card and the other to the top right edge using foam adhesive to give it dimension. Make sure you adhere the largest of the two sides near the bottom. This will keep your card balanced and prevent it from looking top-heavy. I heat embossed the sentiment in the middle of the card with white embossing powder. I love the way this card turned out!

Copic Markers:

Yellow Flower: Y02, Y08, Y17, Y38,E35, E37, E27; Purple Flower: V04, V05, V06;

Blue Flower: BG72, BG75

Greenery: YG61, YG63 – YG95, YG97 – YG06, YG09

Brown Leaves: E30, E31, E33

Card #2: Small Images Slimline Card

To create the second slimline card, I’m using a small stamp set from Picket Fence Studios called A World of Octobers. This is a very small but adorable set. To make this small set fit on a tall slimline card, I framed them out. I placed two images from this set in two separate windows, and I used the third window to frame my sentiment.

Here is the process video for these cards. You can watch it here of over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Have a lovely week!

Jackie

Christmas Cards, Spellbinders, Spellbinders Small Die of the Month

Twinkle Lights Christmas Card | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month September | Hello & Thank You

Hello & Welcome! I have a short but sweet blog post today showing Spellbinders’ Small Die of the Month Kit for September. It is called Hello & Thank You! There are 18 cutting dies in this set, and as usual, it’s a very cute and well thought out set.

The cardstock and pattern paper I used to create this card are from the September Card Kit of the Month. I glued my diamond shaped wreath together before I adhered it onto the front of my card. One of the small dies cuts out the little white flowers you see in my tray below. They looked like Christmas bulbs to me, so that’s how I used them.

I colored in the bulbs with Copic markers. Copic Markers: RV06, YR04, YG13, G07, B24

I attached the bulbs to the little stems that look like a lot like the string on Christmas lights. After they were all in place, I added glossy accents over them. This really made them look like twinkle lights. I put my card aside to dry for about an hour.

Here is my process video. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful week!

Arteza Art Products, Floral Cards, Watercolor Pencils, Watercolors

Floral Watercolor Cards using Arteza Pre-Made Postcards & Watercolor Cards

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! I have a couple of new products to show you from Arteza. They have some new products just for us card crafters–Blank Watercolor Cards and Watercolor Postcards. I stamped a couple of large floral images on these blank cards and pulled out some Arteza watercolor mediums. The paper of these cards is 100% cotton, and I loved painting on them!

I also have a coupon code for you from Arteza. It’s good for 10% off your purchase: JackiesCraftTable7  It’s valid from September 12th until October 17th.

Postcard: Thankful Flowers

I stamped out my floral images and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This makes watercoloring very fast and easy. You don’t have to wait for your paint to dry before beginning on another section. The embossed lines are like little wells around each stamped section and contains the paint. To paint this, I pulled out my set of Arteza 36 Watercolor Half Pans. I love watercolors, and this set from Arteza really has some beautiful colors in it.

I usually add some type of sequin to my cards, but since this is a postcard, I spattered it with little flicks of paint.

Card: Floral Surprise

Arteza’s Blank watercolor cards are a little bit bigger than the A2 sized cards I usually create. I could have cut this card down, but I wanted to try out this size. It was a great size for the large floral image I used. This time I didn’t heat emboss my image.

I colored in my card with Arteza’s Watercolor Pencils. I love watercolor pencils. You can use them as colored pencils or you can add water to smooth and brighten up your colors.

Arteza Watercolor Pencils I used on this card:

Pink Flowers: Coral, Apricot & Peony

Small flowers: Peony

Yellow Flowers: Yellow Sapphire & Sunflower

Purple Flower: Lilac

Leaves: Matcha & Moss

Dog: Burnt Ochre & Sienna Brown, Orange & Noir

Cat: Space Gray & Peony; Orange & Noir

Background: Pewter

The blog & Instagram hops and giveaways will start Thursday, September 10 and will end on Tuesday, September 15th. We will have 4 x $15 winners!! 2x pulled from blog comments and 2x pulled from the Instagram comments.

For this hop, we are showcasing the Double Stitched Nesting, Wonky Stitched Nesting and Tri-Frame slimline dies from Kat Scrappiness and the “Happy Fall” Stamp set from Not 2 Shabby.

I have a 10% off coupon code for you from the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Card #1: Stacked Pumpkins Slimline Card

This stack of pumpkins was so much fun to create on a slimline card–I wouldn’t have been able to do this tall of a stack on a regual A2 cards. I love all the images from this Happy Fall set! I stamped out my crow first and then stamped down from there, masking as I went along. I stamped on a piece of speckled off-white cardstock from MFT called Primitive Cream Heavyweight Cardstock. I love using colored cardstock for my colored pencil work. It gives you a nice base color to start with.

I then colored in my images with colored pencils. I colored the pumpkins different colors to add variation to my scene. I then masked my images and colored in the background behind them with Distress Oxide Inks. This is a really fast way to add color to your work.

Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils:

Dark Cadmium Yellow 108, Cadmium Orange 111, Dark Cadmium Orange 115, Light Cadmium Red 117, Deep Red 223, Light Red-Violet 135, Purple Violet 136, Delft Blue 141, Warm Grey VI 275, Black 199, Pink Madder Lake 129, Raw Umber 180, Terracotta 186, Burnt Umber 280, Permanent Green 266, Hooker’s Green 159

Distress Oxide Inks: Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Shabby Shutters.

Card #2: Autumn Scenes Slimline Card

I used the largest wonky stitch slimline die this time and cut out a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. This is the paper to use if you are using your Arteza or Zig Real Brush Pens. It allows the pens to blend beautifully. I stamped and masked my scenes using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and poured clear embossing powder over them. Once I melted the embossing powder, the lines were shiny and smooth. The embossed lines contain the watercolors, so you can paint and don’t have to worry about your images bleeding into each other.

I cut out another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using the smallest wonky stitch die and used that for my sentiment strip and to separate my two scenes. I stamped two more sentiments–one above each scene. The sentiments fit perfectly in the top corners of these scenes.

Arteza Real Brush Pens:

Pumpkin – Sunset Yellow, Orange, Autumn Red; Stem – Pale Green, Basil Green; Backbird – Wisteria Purple, Amethyst Purple, Eggplant Purple, Noir; Beak – Lemon Yellow, Peach; Leaf – Basil Green, Pale Green. Lemon Yellow, Orange, Cadmium Orange. Cheeks – Rouge Pink; Scarecrow – Face & Hands – Cantaloupe; Hat – Green Tea; Patches, Lemon Yellow, Orange; Straw Hair – Lemon Yellow, Orange; Jeans – Night Sky Blue

Copic Coloring, Halloween Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Critter Costume Party Card | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project

Hello crafty friends! Welcome! It’s still August but I’m creating my first Halloween card of the year. When I saw this new stamp set from Not 2 Shabby, I had to ink it up right away. It’s called Critter Costume Party. You get a lot of darling images and sentiments in this set.

I also have a 10% off coupon code for you for the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

This is 1 of the 4 new stamp sets in the Not 2 Shabby Shop. All of them are fall/Halloween themed. Here is a link to check them out: New Stamps Bundle

They are all fall/Halloween related stamps. With this bundle you’ll be all set for your fall time card crafting.

I stamped most of the images onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Smooth White Cardstock–great for using with your alcohol markers. All colored them in using the same yellow, purple and brown markers. This will add cohesion to your card. I fussy cut them out with a small, white border.

I used a window die to cut out a frame with black cardstock and with Bristol Smooth Cardstock. The latter paper works beautifully with ink blending. I blended Distress Inks onto the little window panels. The colors I used are Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet on 2 panels. On the other 2 panels I used Carved Pumpkin, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade. I wanted to put some bright colors behind my critters.

Next I started putting the card together. I glued down the window frame and window panel with liquid adhesive.

I used foam tape to pop up my critters in the windows. I also used some Pretty Pink Posh jewels call Boo to add some sparkle to the card.

And here is the finished card! I had a blast putting this one together! Let the fall time and Halloween time card crafting begin!!

Below is my process video! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD!

Have a lovely day! Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Card Kits, Spellbinders, Spellbinders Card Kit, Spellbinders Small Die of the Month

Spellbinders August Club Kits and Fun Stampers Journey Craft Happy Set

Hello crafty friends! I have a few projects to share with you! I’m crafting with Spellbinders August Card Kit, their Small Die of the Month and a darling stamp & die bundle from Fun Stampers Journey called Craft Happy.

The first three cards I created using the August Card Kit. It’s called Around the World, and it’s all about vacations and relaxation. To create card number 4 I used the Small Die of the Month, and on card number 5 I used a new stamp and die set from Fun Stampers Journey.

Card 1: Relax with Fruity Drinks and Popsicles Card

I loved the paper pad that came in this kit. The designs are fabulous. On my first carded I used this happy looking paper paper from the pad Around the World. I also used a lot of cute die cut shapes from the kit.

Card #2: Happy Journey Card

I used another piece of pattern paper for my next card. I love stripes. I also used several die cut shapes and colored them in with colored pencils. I also colored the stripes behind my sentiment pink to help make the sentiment die cut shape stand out a little more. I stamped the word happy with red ink to make it pop.

Card #3: Staycation Card

This has been my vacation this year–a staycation. I didn’t travel anywhere with my family because of the pandemic. However, like this card says, “I heart here!” Home is one of my favorite places to be. Give me home and family and books (and crafting supplies) and I’m a happy camper. I let my books take me to exotic locations this year.

Card #4: A Little Note Card

I used the Small Die of the Month to create this card. The set is called Sitting Pretty. I cut out the dies with several shades of pink cardstock. I glued the shapes onto a gray panel. I used the inlay technique to add pink cardstock inside the die cuts. This set is fun because you can create your own sentiment with this alphabet die set. I love all occasion cards, so I simply spelled out “Hi” and “A Little Note.”

Below you’ll see what exactly these little dies look like. They are very ornamental and pretty.

Card #5: Creativity is Messy Card

On card #5 I’m using a new Fun Stampers Journey stamp and die bundle called Craft Happy. I love the stamps in this set and the pretty lime green coordinating dies. I stamped the paint tube stamp onto pieces of colored cardstock. I used the coordinating die to cut them out. I used Copic markers to add a little bit of detail to each tube. This is a very simple card, but I love how it turned out. There is so much you can do with this darling set!

Here is a look at the stamp set as well as the coordinating dies. I love that they’re lime green!

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Spellbinders Spooky Cottage Treat Boxes | Spooky Cottage & Charming Cottage Dies | Becca Feeken

Hello! Welcome. I’m creating something a little different today. Spellbinders sent me some really adorable cutting dies to kick off our Halloween and Christmas crafting. I’m not ready for fall yet, but crafty supplies like these make me feel a little bit better about our impending fall and winter seasons. These are some new dies set in the Spellbinders shop designed by Becca Feeken, and they are called Charming Cottage and Spooky Cottage dies. I created two treat boxes using elements from both sets. However, I am planning on creating some spooky, fun Halloween cards using these dies.

There are actually three sets in this new release, but I have two of them to show you. I love all the embossed details that these dies create. The spooky tree is just fabulous–the die embosses the grain of the bark!Image5

I filled my treat boxes with lots of Halloween candy–yes, it’s August and the stores are already selling Halloween candy! You can put a lot of candy in these seemingly little boxes.

Here is my process video! I hope you enjoy!

Take care, my crafty friends!!

Doodle Cards using Storytime Paint Pens | Spellbinders & Jane Davenport

Image3

Hello! Thanks for stopping by! I have never used acrylics of any sort in my art or my cards, and today I’m trying out Jane Davenport’s Storytime Paint Pens called Wonderland. I love trying out new art mediums, and I really had fun with these pens. The set comes with 5 bold pens and 5 fine pens of the same colors. I love how smooth they go down on the paper, and I love that they look bold and bright on any color of cardstock you use.

Today they are giving this set of pens away with a purchase of $75 or more. It’s a $39.99 value! They also have black and white acrylic pens.

Card #1: Doodle Flower Die Cuts Card

On my first card I began by doodling on kraft cardstock with these pens. I wanted some of the kraft to show through, but I added many layers of colors. The pens are opaque, so you can add lots of layers and the colors show up brilliantly. I then die cut them with a set of Spellbinders floral cutting dies which came in a previous card kit. However, use whatever dies you have on hand if you want to give this technique a try. I love the look of these flowers–so fun and bright!

Card #2: Doodle Flower on Black Cardstock

I drew in my flower with a white charcoal pencils on a piece of black cardstock. I then went over my lines with these pens. I added lots of dots and doodles, and I thoroughly enjoyed painting with these pens.

Here is my process video! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for visiting!
