Skiing Snowman Slimline Card | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month Kit

Hello card crafters! I have some really fun dies to show you in this blog post! I adore Spellbinders’ Small Die of the Month Set for November. You can create the cutest skiing snowman, Christmas tree and North Pole sign. They sure packed a lot into the set this month. There are also two different heads you can put on the snowman. The one I used is looking up, and the other one looks forward. This set is called, “Frankie Goes to the North Pole.”

I will have a process video for this card soon. My microphone decided to quit after 5 years of hard work, so unfortunately, I have to replace it.

There is so much you can do with this set. It comes with a lot of little accessories like mittens, a scarf, skis and ski poles. I cut out all the dies using white cardstock. I then colored in all my die cuts with Copic markers. I found this to be the fastest way to add color; however, you could cut them out with colored cardstock or pattern paper.

Here is a list of the Copic marker I used:

Snowman: B0000, B000

Nose: YR04

Hat: N4, N5, N7

Scarf: YG61, YG63, R24

Skis: R22, R32

Arms: E23

Christmas Tree: YG61, YG63

Ski Poles & Star: Y02, Y17

I really love this little Christmas tree too. It even comes with a snow bank to attach at the bottom, baubles and a star. The North Pole sign is adorable too! I love the snow die cut. This is a really well-thought-out kit!

My slimline card measure 8 1/2 x 3 1/2. To add color to the white cardstock I used some Distress Oxide Inks: Candied Apple and Tattered Rose. The sentiment comes from Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month. There were a lot of pretty sentiments in that kit.

Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope you have a wonderful week! Take Care!

Arteza Art Products, Gel Pens, Halloween Cards, Slimline Cards

Hello Bootiful Slimline Card using Arteza Metallic Watercolors & White Gel Pens

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I have a fun slimline Halloween card to show you. I used some fabulous products from Arteza and MFT Stamps to create this card. I used Arteza’s Metallic Watercolors and White Gel Pens, and some adorable stamps from MFT.

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

First, I stamped out my background with VersaMark embossing ink and poured over some beautiful orange embossing powder. This orange embossing powder shows up beautifully on the black cardstock! The background stamp is from MFT Stamps, and it’s called City Block Background Stamp. I love this stamp; it’s so adorable and can be used all year round.

Next I stamped out my ghosts and pumpkins and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I stamped them onto black watercolor paper so I could paint them with some beautiful metallic watercolors from Arteza. I painted the ghosts with the Diamond White color–I love how shiny this paint is and yet still translucent. The pumpkins I painted with Aztec Gold, Iridescent Green for the stem, and Lemon Yellow for the mouth and eyes.

I fussy cut them out and added some pink bats to the tops of their heads–hopefully they look like bows on these ghosts.

I used my favorite slimline dies from Trinity Stamps to cut out the slimline scallop panel. I popped up my images with some Arteza Foam Tape to give them dimension. For a last touch I used the 0.6–the smallest size white gel pen–to add some white details to the back ground panel.

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

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

Colored Pencils, Fall Themed Cards, Not 2 Shabby

More Autumn Cards using Colored Pencils | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project

Hello and welcome! I’m stamping up some cute designs exclusive to the Not 2 Shabby Shop today. For my first card I used the set called “You, Me and Pumpkin Spice.” I love the little squirrels in this set as well as all the fabulous fall images. On my second card I used “Fall Gnomes.” It includes two of the cutes gnome images I’ve ever seen.

Card #1: Stamped Pattern Paper Card

One of my all time favorite techniques is stamping out my own pattern paper. Not only is it fun, but it allows you to use all of the images from your set on one card. I stamped my images onto a piece of kraft cardstock using Fallen Leaves brown ink. This is a pigment ink, so you almost always get a crisp stamping without the use of the stamp positioner. I wanted my squirrels to really stand out from the kraft cardstock, so I stamped them onto a piece of white cardstock and colored them in with colored pencils.

Card #2: Row Stamping Slimline Card

For my slimline card I pulled out my stamp positioner to stamp out the gnome several times. I used the same Fallen Leaves brown ink, and I stamped it onto a piece of light brown cardstock. I cut out this panel using a slimline die set from Trinity Stamps. I stamped the gnome in the middle first, so I could make sure he was centered, and then I shifted my paper along the bottom edge of my stamp positioner 1 1/4 inches on each side and stamped 4 more gnomes.

For the gnome that I colored in, I stamped him onto a piece of white cardstock. I used more colored pencils and fussy cut him out. I popped him up with foam adhesive as well as the sentiment. This slimline card measures 8 1/2 by 3 1/2.

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

Card Kits, Fall Themed Cards, Scrapping for Less

Scrapping for Less | September FOTM Card Kit Reveal | Orchards & Patches

Fall is here! Let’s take a trip to the Apple Orchard or maybe you want to go to the Pumpkin Patch! A little story about pumpkin patches…I started scrapbooking when our first grandchild was born. And boy did I love documenting everything about his growth. When he was 3 I wanted to take him to a pumpkin patch for the sole purpose of being able to do a photo shoot there and as a result create a scrapbook page. So whether you scrapbook or make cards, make sure you enjoy the fall weather and do something fun! Our Guest and Design Team has some fabulous project to share with the September kit “Orchards and Patches.” Please visit Scrapping for Less to get your kit. Also enter the Rafflecopter on the SFL blog post for a chance to win a prize! – Written by Teresa Russell

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hello everyone! I’m guest designing today for Scrapping for Less and their Flavor of the Month September Card Kit! I love these kits–they are packed with crafty delights! I’m crafting up some fall time cards.

Included in this kit are 4 different collections, each including a stamp set and gorgeous pattern paper as well as other goodies. Below you’ll see collections 1 and 2.

Next you’ll see collections 3 and 4. I really love all the stamps sets in these collections.

You’ll also get some beautiful cardstock, and if you subscribe to the Banana Split level, you’ll get an extra packet of goodies.

Card #1: Partial Die Cut Sunflower Card (Collection 1)

To create this card I stamped my image and colored it in with Copic markers. Coloring on a colored cardstock makes your coloring go quick because you already have a base color. I cut out half of my image so it would overhang onto the pretty pattern paper. To cut it out I used my paper trimmer for the straight lines and my scissors.

Card #2: Fall is Sweeter with Honey Card Sketch (Collection 1)

I used one of the card sketches posted on the Scrapping for Less website to create this card. Each month they supplies you with these great sketches. I used more images from the stamp set included with collection 1. The pattern paper adds so much to this card.

Card #3: Autumn Gnome Card (Collection 2)

I adore this gnome in the stamp set from collection 2! I colored him in with colored pencils. To create the background behind him I used Distress Inks: Candied Apple, Ripe Persimmon, and Mustard Seed. To get a smooth blend make sure you use Bristol Smooth cardstock.

Card #4: Scarecrow Card (Collection 3)

Another fabulous stamp in this collection–love the scarecrow! I colored him in with colored pencils. I used three different pattern paper from this collection on this card.

Card #5: Happy Fall Shaker Card (Collection 4)

From one of the die cut shapes included in this collection, I created a fun shaker card. I used a few elements from the other collections to create this card such as the Happy Fall sentiment from collection 2 and the ribbon and buttons from collection 3. The sequins come from the goodie pack you get when you subscribe to the Banana Split level.

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

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.

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

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
