10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS October Card Kit 2019 |Thankful Flowers

Hello everyone! We are in the midst of a gorgeous fall here in Chicagoland. I love creating cards with all the traditional fall-time colors, and I went all-out fall with Simon Says Stamp’s October card kit. The floral images and the sentiments in the stamp set form this kit are lovely! However, its the kind of set that you can use all year round.

I created these cards using a lot of different art mediums, and a lot of different techniques. I always have a ball creating with SSS’s card kits, and this one was no exception.  You will see pictures of all the cards I created, my process video, and supply links below.

Card #1: Note of Thanks Card

I stamped the flower image from the Thankful Blooms set onto a piece of darling pattern paper and colored it in with Faber Castell colored pencils. A small strip of metallic paper from the kit, brings this card to the next level.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Cinnamon 189, Light Purple Pink 128, Fuchsia 123, Red-Violet 194, Earth Green Yellowish 168, Permanent Green Olive, 167, Cream 102, Venetian Red 190

Card #2:Black & White Thanks Card with Metallic Sentiment

This black and white floral pattern paper is beautiful enough to stand on it’s own, so I just added my sentiment, a few gemstones and called it done.

IMG_8703

Card #3: Double Emboss on Patter Paper Card

I embossed the floral image as well as the sentiment with Penny embossing powdered onto a piece of pattern paper. I love all the browns of the embossing, the lines on the pattern paper and the dark chocolate card base. I added a pop of interest by coloring in the flowers and leaves with some Distress Oxide inks. Very fast coloring!

IMG_8704

Card #4: Fall Flowers Card

This card took the longest to put together, but it’s my favorite. I colored in the flowers with alcohol markers from Arteza–These flowers are the star of the show; however, I really love the cute pattern paper, and the bold thanks die cut.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers – Tuscan Sun, Sunflower Yellow, Amber Yellow, Macaron Pink, Coral, Tea Green, Olive Green

IMG_8705

Card #5: Diagonal Pattern Paper Cards

This card design in a two-fer. I created two cards in the same time it takes to create one card. I cut down the pattern papers into 5 1/4 by 4 inches, and then I put them together and cut them out diagonally. I added a stripe of metallic card stock and some gemstones to add some bling. I was able to stamp the sentiments right onto the pattern paper because they are bold enough to not get lost.

IMG_8706

IMG_8707

Card #6: White Embossed Pattern Card

I really enjoyed working with this dark chocolate card stock from the kit. A lot of card crafters, it seems, don’t like to work with brown, but I love it! I embossed the large flower cluster several times around the dark chocolate card stock. I used the same thanks sentiment die on this card, a few iridescent bubbles, and that is all. The beauty of the  stamp speaks for itself.

IMG_8708

Card #7: Wood Grain Flower Card

I used my Prismacolor pencils to color in the flowers on this card. I really love the wood grain pattern paper, and I though a wood grain frame would compliment it well. I stamped my sentiment right onto the pattern paper even though the letters are very small. The pattern paper was light enough to allow me to do this.

Prismacolor Pencils: Orange Flower: Spanish Orange, Orange, Pumpkin Orange, Limepeel, Kelp Green  Pink Flower: Deco Pink, Pink, Neon Pink, Magenta Limepeel, Kelp Green

IMG_8710

Card #8: Masculine Thank You Card

This was the fasted card to put together. I simply stamped the flower inside the squares of this plaid pattern paper. I used a strip of metallic paper to add a pop of interest to this card. I then adhered everything down onto a black card base on which I heat embossed the sentiment.

IMG_8709

Card #9: Watercolor Card with Tiny Notes

I just had to watercolor in these flowers, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I used another piece of pattern paper behind the flower cluster. I stamped two tiny sentiments onto cream colored card stock and tucked them behind the flower cluster.

IMG_8711

Card #10: Stamped Pattern Background Card

I stamped all the small images from the stamp set onto a piece of kraft card stock. I adore the dots stamps. I’m keep though out on my desk, because I know I will use them a lot. They aren’t perfect circle dots–they’re wonky dots! I love anything wonky! I feel a bit wonky myself oftentimes. Lol!

After I was done coloring in my background with Prismacolor pencils, I felt it just needed a little something more, so I added a little bit of teal colored pencil on some of the images. It just needed a little pop of color. It didn’t need any gemstones this time; the background is busy enough. I used a piece of metallic paper to mat it. However, I wanted the metallic paper to show up a little more, so I cut slits into two of the corners and slid my panel into it. Kinda different but fun!

Prismacolor Pencils: Goldenrod 1034, Yellow Ochre 942, Limepeel 1005, Artichoke 1098, Olive Green 911, Kelp Green 1090, Light Aqua 992

Pumpkin Latte Fall Themed Cards 2019 | Newton’s Nook

It’s time to create some fall-time cards!! I found this darling stamp set from Newton’s Nook called Pumpkin Latte, and I just love the images in it!! I started out with one design and then mixed it up to create 4 cards with this fabulous stamp set.

Image6

Card #1: Latte Lady

I started out with my background for this card. I used several Distress Oxides to blend out a background for my latte lady. I colored in the images with some alcohol markers from Arteza. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out, and then I simply adhered them to my card base. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Skin – Pale Peach, Peach, Apricot; Coat – Carolina Blue, Sapphire Blue; Pumpkins – Yellow Ochre, Sienna Brown, Vermilion, Pumpkin Orange, Apricot; Skirt – Peaches & Cream, Dolphin Gray; Hair – Jasmin Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Ginger; Boots – Ginger, Hazelnut Brown

Image4

Card #2: Latte Lady with Pumpkins

The background on this card is darker than the first one because I blended on a lot more distress oxide. I used more images that I colored in with alcohol markers. This card is very similar to the first one.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Skin – Pale Peach, Peach, Apricot; Coat – Carolina Blue, Sapphire Blue; Pumpkins – Yellow Ochre, Sienna Brown, Vermilion, Pumpkin Orange, Apricot; Skirt – Peaches & Cream, Dolphin Gray; Hair – Jasmin Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Ginger; Boots – Ginger, Hazelnut Brown

Image5

Card #3: Stamped Pattern Background Card

I love creating stamped pattern backgrounds. I used pigment ink to do this, as it stamps out dark and crisp without a stamp positioner. I blended on some carved pumpkin Distress Oxide ink to create a focal point for my latte lady.

Image7

Card #4: Latte Lady on Kraft Card Stock

This card is different from the other 3 because I stamped my images on to kraft card stock and colored them in with some Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I used a banner die cut to spotlight my latte lady.

Colored Pencils: Skin –   Coat – Cold Grey II, Cold Grey III, Cold Gray IV, Cobalt Blue; Pumpkins – Cadmium Orange, Dark Cadmium Orange, Light Yellow Ochre, Caput Mortuum, May Green, Olive Green Yellowish; Jeans – Cobalt Blue, Prussian Blue Hair – Burnt Siena, Raw Umber, Dark Naples Ochre

Jack-O’-Lanterns & Gelly Roll Pens | 2 Cards Featuring The Rabbit Hole Designs Stamps

Hello everyone! Happy autumn!! I felt it was time to pull out my Gelly Roll pens to create a couple of Halloween cards. I came across a new-to-me stamp company called The Rabbit Hole Designs. I just love these two jack-o-lantern stamp sets called Pumpkin Hair Don’t Care, and Pumpkin Friends. These stamps were perfect to use with this gel pen technique. The lines of the stamps are very sketchy, and that helps to add shading and more interest to the cards.

I am also very excited to announce the launch of my very own Jackie’s Craft Table Glue!! I use liquid glue on practically every card I create, and my glue is a strong, archival quality glue that dries clear. In my slightly biased opinion–lol–it’s as good as any other liquid adhesive out on the market, and it’s cheaper. It’s also super cute with its bright pink cap! Please check out my Etsy shop if you are interested in this new product.

IMG_8555

Card #1: Pumpkin Hair Don’t Card

On this card I stamped out the image with white pigment ink, allowed it to dry for a few minutes, and then drew right over the lines with some Moonlight Gelly Roll Pens. The moonlight pens show up really well on the black card stock. I also used a few Metallic Gelly Rolls. This card was so fun to create, as well as fast and very cute!!

IMG_8551

Card #2: Pumpkin Friends

On my second card I stamped the image with dark brown pigment ink. Then I used an ink smearing technique. All you need to do is put down a little section of ink at a time and then smudge it with your finger. You have to work in small sections to be able to smear the ink before it dries. I left a lot of the kraft card stock showing through because I love the look of it on these pumpkins. I re-stamped my images after I finished coloring them to crisp up the lines–you can skip this step if you want to. I made a mask for my image and then blended on two different Distress Oxide Inks to add a little bit of background color behind them.

5 Cards, 1 Kit | Pink & Main August Card Kit 2019 | Fruit Salad

What is cuter than a fruit stamp set? I loved this kit from Pink & Main with all it’s bold pattern papers, sequins, rhinestones, and twine–and especially the 6 x 6 stamp set. The set provides the outline stamps and the solid stamps; so, you can color in the images or stamp them in. I created 5 fun cards using this kit.

IMG_8373 - Copy

Card #1: Strawberry & Plaid Card

I usually always jump into a kit using my favorite of the stamps and my favorite of the pattern paper. They do most of the work for you. This was a 100% stamped card–no coloring involved, which was unusual for me. If you have a stamp positioning tool, it makes a card like this go very fast.

IMG_8374

 

IMG_8375

Card #2: Action Wobbler Lemon

Another fast and easy card with a big impact. Action wobblers are fun to use, and how could the recipient not love it! Minimal coloring on this card–I only filled in the lemon with a few colored pencils to add some dimension.

IMG_8377

IMG_8378

Card #3: Row of Fruit Card

This card is my favorite! I absolutely love the look of colored pencils on kraft card stock. These fruit images were really fun to color in!! I added highlights with a white gel pen, and this added a lot of charm to the card. Some of the highlight I simply used a white colored pencil.

IMG_8379

Card #4: Distress Ink Fruit Card

I had a vision for this card when I started out, and the end result turned out nothing like the vision I had in my head. Lol! That’s how it is sometimes; however, I love how it turned out in the end. This card went through a lot of changes. My plan was to ink smoosh and then stamp the flowers onto it using the pink embossing powder in the kit. I learned that I need to practice my ink smooshing skills.

IMG_8380

Card #5: Watermelon Card

I realized when creating this kit that the watermelon image was my favorite of the set. Look how cute it stamped out!! All stamping, no coloring for this card too. It should have been very quick and easy, but I couldn’t decide on my positioning of the melons. That took me a while. Lol!

Arteza Everblend Art Markers Review | Card Projects using Funny Farm Set from Stampers Anonymous

Hello crafty friends! I have another art medium to review for you today! Arteza very kindly sent me their 120 set of Everblend Art Markers. These are alcohol based markers, and I love working with alcohol markers; so, I was very excited to try these out!

I created 8 cards using these markers. I also used a new stamp set from Stampers Anonymous called Funny Farm. These barnyard animals are so adorable! The markers have two sides–a fine tip or bullet and a chisel tip. I used the fine tip side to color in these images, and I used the chisel tip side to color in backgrounds behind my animals. I used the chisel tip on these markers more than I use the chisel tip on my Copic alcohol markers. The Everblend chisel tip is significantly larger than the Copic’s chisel tip. It makes coloring backgrounds–putting down a lot of color–very quick and easy.

I also really loved the fine tip. It made getting into the small bits of the images so easy! You can buy the fine tips to put in your Copic markers, and I considered doing this at one time; however, it was just too expensive.

I used these markers on white card stock and kraft card stock. I love the bright, bold look of these markers on white card stock, but the de-saturated look you get on your kraft paper is a lot of fun too!

I am slowly adding to my Copic marker collection–love my Copics. However, Copics are very expensive–I have been collecting them for over 3 years now, and I’m nowhere near having the complete set. The Arteza’s Everblend markers sets have a fabulous price point. They are not refillable: however, you can buy them open stock, and they do have replaceable tips. These markers blended beautifully!

Bottom line–I love these markers!!

I created a swatch chart for these markers. I always like to swatch out any new mediums I’ve added to my collection. Here is the link if you want a copy of this chart: Arteza Everblend Art Markers Swatch Chart in PDF format

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS August Card Kit 2019 | Look for the Rainbows

Hi my crafty friends, I hope you are all having a wonderful day! When I received Simon Says Stamp’s September card like last week, I dug right in. This card kit is full of pretty things. I love floral stamp sets, and I did a lot of different techniques using their stamp set called, “Look for the Rainbows.”

2019 SSS Sept Card Kit THUMB

Card #1: Colored Pencil on Pattern Paper

Polychromos Pencils: Cobalt Green 156, Cobalt Turquoise 153, Light Red-Violet 135, Olive Green Yellowish 173, Chrome Oxide Green 278, Dark Naples Ochre 184, Indian Red 192

I love block text pattern paper, and their is nothing prettier thank stamping and coloring in the flowers right on this paper. I used colored pencils that matches the color of the text. You don’t need to add a lot of color, and these are very fast cards to put together. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock and popped it up off the card with foam tape.

IMG_8431

Card #2: Rainbow Flower Card

Polychromos Pencils: Medium Flesh 131. Deep Scarlet Red 219, Magenta 133, Cadmium Yellow Lemon 205, Cadmium Orange 111, May Green 170, Permanent Green 266, Light Phthalo Green 162, Ultramarine 120, Helioblue-Reddish 151, Dark Naple Ochre 184

I colored in my flower image to match the rainbow pattern paper. I liked how this pattern paper isn’t your usual bright rainbow colors–it’s more muted. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pattern paper that I selectively die cut with an oval die.

IMG_8432

Card #3: No-Line Watercolor Flower

I stamped the flower onto a pieces of Arches Cold Press watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. The ink melted really well into the Daniel Smith watercolors I used to paint this flower. No-line watercoloring takes time because you don’t want to paint petals that are next to each other. If you do this they will bleed together, and you won’t get any distinction between the petals. I really loved this bright green pattern paper that I used for the background. I stamped the sentiment onto the Arches paper as well, and used a watercolor pencils to color it in the same color as the flower.

IMG_8433

Card #4: Colored Pencils on Pattern Paper, Again 🙂

The pattern paper in this kit is fabulous, and I really love polka-dot paper. I stamped this flower cluster with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink. Sometimes colored pencils can dull your lines; however, I didn’t do a lot of coloring on this panel. I wanted to allow the pattern of the paper show through.

IMG_8435

Card #5: Orange & Teal Fall Time Card

Unfortunately, I lost some footage when I was creating this card. I stamped the flower and stem onto a piece of kraft card stock and used polychromos colored pencils to color them in. I used mostly flicking motions to give it some bold stripes of color and texture. I used a wide range of orange pencils and even a white colored pencil to add highlights. Again, I used a lot of paper from this kit to put behind my flower.

IMG_8440

Card #6: 3-D Embossed Foil Card

For this card I selectively cut out a piece of the pattern paper, so the large butterfly could be my focal image. The 3-D embossing folder is fabulous!! Just look at all the detail and shine!

IMG_8441

Card #7: Banner & Birds Card

You can probably tell that I really love my faux stitch banner dies. I keep them out on my desk. I stamped out and colored in the birds from the stamp set. I used my Arteza Everblend Art Markers to color them in.

IMG_8436

Card #8: Pattern Paper Flower Bouquet Card

I again stamped the flowers onto a piece of pattern paper; however, this time I cut them out and adhered them to a piece of the Audrey Blue card stock. I used a light pink colored pencil over the petals to add detail to the flowers and bring cohesion to my bouquet.

IMG_8437

Card #9: Thank You Flower Frame Card

This is my least favorite card, but I wanted to include it just the same. I should include more of my cards that I chalk up to, “I tried.” Lol! I cut the flowers out of the pattern paper–I thought I was being clever, but I should have just used the whole piece of paper. I glued them around my oval frame die cut and my sentiment. I glued on this bright green frame because I felt the frame got lost behind all these flowers. I think I’d be fun if people posted their, “I Tried” cards for us all to see. 🙂

IMG_8439

Card #10: Repeat

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Watermelon Pink A487 & Raspberry Red A45, Amber Yellow A9424 & Desert Sand A9421, Brandy Rose A2596 & Cocoa Brown A2499, Pumpkin Orange A9423 & Vermilion A422

I love this fall time card. It was fast and easy to put together, and I love how it turned out. It’s amazing what you can do with just one stamp sometimes. I used the leaf sprig and stamped it repeatedly over my kraft panel. I used my new Arteza Everblend Markers to color these leaves in various fall colors. The metallic paper behind it is just fabulous. I’m going to used more metallic papers in my card crafting.

Arteza Products Review & Floral Card 2019

Hello everyone! I have some fun products that I’m reviewing today.  Arteza contacted me and asked if I’d like to review some of their art supplies. They sent me a 48 pack of their Real Brush Pens. I have the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, which I really love, but I’ve heard some great things about Arteza’s Real Brush Pens. They also sent a two pack of their watercolor pads, a set of bone folders, and three packs of Holographic Chunky Glitter.

2019 Arteza THUMB

First I swatched all the Real Brush Pens onto a piece of the watercolor paper that they sent me. The colors are all vibrant and beautiful, and I really like the names they came up with for their colors. I had some difficulty getting the colors to move on their watercolor paper with a water brush–I wanted to achieve a gradient from each of the pens. However, I found that if I first dipped the pen into clean water and then onto the paper, I could create a nice gradient effect. Also, Bristol Smooth paper is a great paper to use with these brushes. The coating on the paper allows you to blend and move the pigments beautifully.

To color my flowers, I put down my lightest pigments first using this technique and slowly built up my colors. I left a lot of white space on my flowers for highlights. To color in my light blue background around my flowers, I scribbled the True Blue pen onto my acrylic block and diluted it with water and painted around my flowers with the water brush that came with the pens.

I really enjoyed using all of the products they sent me. On their website they say that their goal is to provide quality, affordable art supplies to put into the hands of the creators, and in my opinion, they have accomplished this goal with these products that they sent to me.

 

Poppy Birthday Card:

Real Brush Pens used: Rouge Pink A190, Red A101, Light Magenta A184, Walnut Brown A164, Green Tea A154, Crocodile A126, Olive Green A146, True Blue A168

IMG_8200

On the inside of the card I painted a strip of the same watercolor paper with the Rouge Pink pen. I again dipped the pen in clean water to lighten the pigment and then colored it along the paper until the pen’s natural pigment came out. I then adhered it to the inside of my card with liquid glue.

5 Cards, 1 Kit | MFT Flowers in Bloom | Tips for Photographing Cards

Hello and welcome!! I love it when card kits include art mediums. MFT’s June kit included Color Burst watercolors. This is a medium I never tried before. I had heard of it, but it didn’t interest me. It took a card kit to get me to try them. I had a lot of fun working with these powdered watercolors, and it was mesmerizing to watch them burst into life when mixed with water. The speckled effects you can get with these are gorgeous and unique.

The kit also included some watercolor paper by Ken Oliver. I loved the bright whiteness of it. It reminded me of the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Card Stock. It was fun to try, but I’ll stick with my Arches watercolor paper which can take on a lot more water than the Ken Oliver paper.

I used many different techniques to create these these cards, but my favorite is the metallic watercolors on black card stock card. This floral stamp set lent itself perfectly for this technique. I love a large floral stamp sets like this one.

At the end of my video, I included a new product I use to take pictures of my cards on. I also show you how I take pictures of my cards for my blog, Instagram and Facebook.

Thank you for stopping by! Links to the products I used are listed below. The MFT June kit is sold out; however, I have links to all the products from the kit which you can buy separately.
