Card #1: Hello Lovely Butterflies Card

On my first card, I used the Stacked Decorative Edges to add some beautiful details on a piece of white card stock. I love how the blue card stock behind it really helps to showcase the design. The jar and butterfly images are from the All the Little Things stamp set. You can purchase this stamp set separately from the card kit. I used Copic markers to color in these images.

Copics: Jar: B00, B02; Butterfly 1: RV04, RV02; Butterfly 2: BG05. Y08; Butterfly 3: YR04, Y17

Card #2: Thank You Cat Card

I used All the Little Things stamp set and Stacked Decorative Dies again to create card number two. I adore the cat images for this stamp set! I colored in my cat with warm gray Copic markers to add shading.

Card #3: Oh Happy Day Rainbow Card

I used a lot of components from All the Little Things May kit to create this card. The rainbow and clouds are from the Die Cut Shapes pack. You can buy both the die cut shapes and the pattern paper from this kit separately. I love this piece of navy striped pattern paper. Again, I used one of the Stacked Decorative Edges to cut out the scallop on the pink card stock. I stamped the sentiment in between the blue stripes on the pattern paper. The butterflies come from a 3-D sticker pack from the kit.

Card #4: Pattern Paper & Die Cut Shapes Card

May Blog Hop Photo 5

The pattern paper in this month’s kit is darling! I had to use this piece with the teacups and water pitcher on it. I added a piece of green card stock cut out with another Stacked Decorative Edge to distinguish the die cut shapes from the busy but cute pattern paper.

Card #5: Enjoy Today Butterfly Card

May Blog Hop Photo 4

The kit also contained a pack of beautiful 3-D butterfly stickers. They are the star of this card. I used a Stacked Decorative Edges to cut out a piece of gold mirror card stock. This piece of pattern paper also has some gold foil detailing to it.

Colored Pencils, Not 2 Shabby

Pup in a Cup Stamp Set | Not 2 Shabby Shop | Colored Pencils on Kraft

Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to introduce the release of a new stamp set in the Not 2 Shabby Shop! It’s called Pup in a Cup. The main image is a darling pug holding onto the edge of a cup. This set also includes lots of fun sentiments and smaller stamps.

Image1 (8)

I stamped out the pug image onto a piece of Stonehenge Kraft cardstock using a dark chocolate brown ink. I pulled out my favorite art medium to color in this darling doggy, my colored pencils. I adore the look of colored pencils on kraft cardstock. This particular kraft cardstock is fabulous. It has a slight texture to it that allows you to add lots of layers to your work, and the pencils blend beautifully on this paper.

Image2 (5)

After I finished my coloring, I placed it back in my Mini Misti stamp positioner and re-stamped it. This really helps to revitalize the lines that colored pencils can obscure.

Here is a list of the Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils it used:

Pug: Ivory 103, Light Yellow Ochre 183, Brown Ochre 182, Dark Sepia 175

Coffee: Burnt Ochre 187 & White

Cup: White, Cold Grey IV 233

Wrapper: Raw Umber 180 & Walnut Brown 177

Heart: Deep Scarlet Red 219 & Rose Carmine 124

I then cut it out with a wonky stitch cutting die, added foam tape behind it, and placed in on an A2 sized card base.

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

Spellbinders, Spellbinders Small Die of the Month

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for May

Welcome! Today I’m playing with Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for May. It consists of eight cutting dies in all, and they coordinate together to make some quick and gorgeously detailed cards.

Spellbinders May Small Die of the Month THUMB

One of the dies cuts out a thank you sentiment. There is also a rectangle die that cuts out a cute thin frame around it. See the picture below.

BLog pic with logo

I used several of the cutting dies on a piece of white card stock. I really love the lattice frame die. Next, I ink blended some Distress Oxide inks onto a white card base. I used Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet and Blueprint Sketch. I let the ink dry completely before heat embossing a tiny sentiment at the bottom of the card.

I then used thin strips of foam tape behind my white panel and adhered it onto the card base. I used a few translucent dots on this card, and that’s it.

Card Kits, Floral Cards, Spellbinders, Spellbinders Card Kit

Spellbinders May Card Kit | 5 Card Projects | All the Little Things

Hello and welcome! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! The May card kit for Spellbinders is here, and I created five card projects with it. This kit is called All the Little Things, and it’s filled with lots of darling little things.

I love all the fun elements in this kit, but I especially love the stamp set–it includes the cutest cat and butterfly images! I also had a lot of fun with the dies. You get coordinating dies for the butterflies from the stamp set! I also really had fun with the unusual frame dies. This is another great kit from Spellbinders!

5cardsforblog

Card #1: Lovely Floral Card

For this card I used a flower sprig and butterfly die cut shape as my focus. To help my flower die cut really pop, I framed it using the frame dies and metallic gold paper. The pattern paper also has metallic gold detailing, and it helped bring everything together.

Card #2: Oh Happy Day Cat Card

I love this little cat–his expression just makes me smile! I stamped him on a piece of white cardstock and colored in some gray shadows and pink ears and cheeks with two different Copic markers. I wanted him to be a white cat so I could use this darling floral pattern paper behind him. I also stamped out one of the butterflies onto pink card stock and added shadows with another Copic marker.

Blog Pic Card 2

Card #3: Off-the-Beaten-Path Card

This card is mostly made up of die cut shapes. I loved the tree die cut shapes! First I adhered down this darling piece of scenic pattern paper onto my card base. I also die cut an oval out of the yellow pattern paper with a Spellbinders oval die. This oval helped to spotlight my die cut pieces as well as help differential them from the green background. To me this card has a very Italian Countryside feel to it.

Card #4: Flowers & Stripes Card

I love the blue striped pattern paper, and I wanted to pair it with more florals. I used another flower die cut shape and then I added a flower dimensional stick on top of it. I decided to stamp out my sentiment in between the blue stripes.

Blog Pic Card 4

Card #5: A Card for Card Crafters

The envelope with the flower popping out is my focal piece on this card. I thought it went perfectly with the die cut shapes of the stamps, ink bottle and pencil. I used another piece of patter paper to stamp out my sentiment onto. I really like the look of stamping in between the lines on my last card, so I did it again on this card.
