Magic Magnetic Tin Pin Easter Card | Copics & Distress Oxides

Hi! I’m back with another tin pin card, except this time I’ve added a magnet behind the card stock to attach it. The tin pin card is now a little more interactive and fun.

The tin pins come in a set of six, and the coloring for these pins is super easy to match up.  You just need to color in the cheeks and nose.

Image1

I used Copic markers to color in my stamped image, and I tried to select colors that would match up with some Distress Oxide inks.

Image2

I used a stamp set from Altenew called A Splash of Color to create splatter marks behind the bunny.

Image3

I used a Neodynium magnet for this project–it’s very thin and strong, and it holds onto the tin pin through the card stock perfectly. Don’t use black sheet magnets or fridge magnets–they would hold onto the tin pin. I used score tape to hold the magnet in place and surrounded it with foam tape which happened to be the same thickness as the magnet.

Kids and adults alike will love the playfulness of this card. I’m going to have a difficult time giving this one away! Lol! However, I can always make more–and that’s exactly what I’m going to do using the other bunny stamp in the set. So much fun!!

Daisy Delight Birthday Cards (2018) |Gem Watercolors & Copic Markers

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I recently visited the Gina K store again in Wisconsin for a class on Brush Lettering. It was a fabulous class, and I learned a lot–more to come on that later. On the way out of her store it’s impossible not to stop and look at all the pretty things in her store. I came across this stamp set called Daisy Delight, and I couldn’t resist buying it. I love large flower stamps. They are so much fun to color in!!

I heat embossed this image with white embossing powder onto a piece of black card stock. I wanted to pull out my Kuretake Gem watercolors and play with them again. They look so dazzling on the black card stock. My pictures of this card hardly do it justice. I painted them in rainbow order, adding a few petals of pink. The trick with painting on black card stock is not to use too much water. Even then my panel buckled a little, but it flattened out as it dried.

For my second card panel I stamped the image onto a piece of kraft card stock. I’ve never used Copic markers on kraft before, but I found I really liked the effect! It’s more muted but still stunning. Below I scribbled the Copic markers I used for this project onto a piece of kraft as well as a piece of white card stock so you could see the difference.

Image1

I painted about two petals at a time to keep the paper wet–Copics blend better in the fibers of the paper this way.  I went lightest to darkest with my colors and then darkest to lightest again to get a good blend.

Image2

I did some partial die cutting on my two panels. I used a faux stitch die and cut out some of the panel, and then I used my scissors to cut around some of the petals.

Image3

I also used some fun foam behind these panels to add dimension. I added a happy birthday sentiment on these panels, a few embellishments, and these cards were done! I hope you give these techniques a try! They are definitely fun to do!

Tin Pin Cards | Darcie’s Stamps & Copics

Hello!  I’m creating Tin Pin cards today!  These stamps and pins are from Darcie’s Heart and Home, and I’m using them to create two different cards.  These products have been out on the market for a while, but this is the first time I’ve used them.  And I can definitely say this won’t be the last!  I loved creating these Tin Pin cards!!

Aren’t these images and pins fabulous?  I love red rubber stamps; there’s just something about them.  They stamp out so crisp and nice.

Image1

One of the fun things about these cards is that they have the color scheme all selected for you.  It’s also a fun challenge to color in the images to look exactly the same as the packaging example so that the tin pins will match up.  However, you could skip the tin pins all together and create your own color scheme.

Image2

Here’s how my coloring turned out.  I’m holding up the packaging example next to it so you can see how I did.  Mine came out a little darker, but it still worked.  I used Copic markers to color in the images, and I really got to know the Copic markers in my collection a little better because of this stamp set.

Image3

I adhered everything down flat onto my card base–the tin pins add enough dimension in my opinion.

Image4

The tin pins have a glue dot attaching them to the packaging, but it didn’t seem strong enough to keep it in place.  I added several of my own smaller glue dots onto the back of the pins–they won’t be falling off anytime soon.
