Colored Pencils, Not 2 Shabby

No-Line Coloring with Colored Pencils | Not 2 Shabby Shop

Hello, crafty friends. It’s time for some no-line coloring. I haven’t done this for a while, but it is a really fun technique. I’m using the adorable hamster image from the set call Yum Yum from the Not 2 Shabby Shop. This stamp set was part of the May Card Box, which sold out super quick. However, you can purchase this as a digi stamp.

I stamped out the hamster using a very pale colored ink called Antique Linen Distress Oxide. If you are printing this image from the digi stamp, you will need to scale back the density so your print is very light. You could also print it off and then trace it onto your card panel with a pencil.

I used a piece of colored cardstock called Barely Peach. Colored cardstock is great for this technique because is give you a base color to begin coloring on. I used my lightest colors first and slowly built up the color and the texture on his fur.

These are the Caran d’Ache colored Pencils that I used:

Caran d’Ache Colored Pencils: Hamster – Brown Ochre 10% 832, Brown Ochre 50% 836, Burnt Ochre 077, Burnt Sienna 069, Naples Ochre 821, Apricot 041, Burnt Ochre 10% 872, Anthraquinoid Pink 571; Pink Flowers – Burnt Ochre 10% 872, Anthraquinoid Pink 571, Scarlet 070; Peach Flower – Brown Ochre 10% 832, Apricot 041; Cupcake – Spring Green 470, Grass Green 220, Burnt Sienna 069, Burnt Ochre 077, Anthraquinoid Pink 571; Grass – Green Ochre 025, Olive Brown 50% 736, Grass Green 220, Moss Green 225

I stamped and colored in some flowers from the Time to Relax stamp set. I then drew in a hill and stems around the hamster. I wanted to keep the background really simple. I love how this card turned out!

Pattern Stamping Technique | Scrappy Tails Crafts | Popping Poppies

Hello crafty friends! There are a lot of gorgeous pattern papers on the market, and I’m sure we have plenty of it in our own personal stashes, but I still adore creating my own pattern paper cards. I’m using a beautiful stamp set from the Scrappy Tails Crafts Shop called Popping Poppies to create a set of stamped background cards.

I’m also using a fast and easy coloring technique with Distress Oxide Inks.

For all three cards I chose a stamp from the set and stamped it several times across a piece of colored cardstock. I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. Once I was done stamping, I poured some clear embossing powder over the images and melted them with a heat tool. Heat embossing your images ensure that when you add the Distress Inks over the flowers, you won’t obscure or smear your lines.

I love the sentiments in this set! To really make them pop off the fronts of my cards, I stamped them on Onyx black cardstock and used white embossing powder.

Card 1

On the first card I used a piece of Persimmon cardstock from Spellbinders. I used Crackling Campfire and Crushed Olive Distress oxide inks and some make up brushes to add some color to the flowers.

Card 2

The cardstock I used on my second card is called Saffron. I used Kitsch Flamingo and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks.

Card 3

For card three I used Poppy Field cardstock and Unicorn White Pigment Ink.

Here is my process video:

I hope you have a wonderful & crafty weekend!!

Stitched Cards | Spellbinders Large Die Club – May

Have you ever tried embroidering on paper? It is a lot of fun and super easy to do–especially with the Spellbinders Large Die Club for May. This die set is called Stitched Card Front, Border and Flower. I also used the Clear Stamp of the Month for my sentiment on this card. I love how big and bold it is.

I used the flower strip dies to cut a diagonal across a white panel. I chose three hues of pink and started embroidering. I taped the ends of the strings down with double sided adhesive. Before I started embroidering the large flower die cut, I glued two of them together to give it some stability.

I had a hard time deciding if I wanted to use Dahlia pink or Cosmic Sky cardstock, so I created two cards. I heat embossed the sentiment with detail white embossing powder. I popped up the white embroidered panel with foam tape. The large flowers and leaves I added to the white panel with micro dots.

I still can’t decide which card I like better. I will definitely be creating more cards with this clever set.

Below is my process video. I hope you enjoy!

Have a lovely day, my friends!

Arched A2 & Slimline Card Creator | Spellbinders Small Die of the Month – May

Hello! I hope you are having a great start to your week. I get to show another of the Spellbinders club kits for May. This one is called Arched A2 & Slimline Card creator. I created an A2 size card, but I will definitely be using this to create a slimline card another time. There are 5 gorgeous dies in this set–perfect for the die cut inlay technique or just putting your die cuts on some pretty cardstock. I did both to this card.

I cut out the dies with white cardstock twice. I wanted to add a little more dimension on my card than one layer provides. I glued one down first onto a piece of Poppy Field cardstock, and then I did a little bit of die cut inlay. I cut out the domed piece with Beeswax cardstock, and then I was able to easily inlay the yellow triangles. This gave the card a pop of color. I also cut out the rectangle strip with Teal Topaz cardstock and pieced the polka dots back in. After I was done inlaying the pieces, I glued another white die cut on top.

I used the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms to cut out a flower and leaves to add to the top of the card. I turned this into a birthday card using the Clear Stamp of the Month for May. A silver bow and some teal gemstones added a pop of sparkle to the card.

Below you will find my process video:

Borders & Sentiments Stamping | Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month – May

Happy Monday, my friends! Let’s start the week out right with a little bit of stamping! Spellbinders Clear Stamp of the Month for May is all about stamping sentiments and borders on your cards. This set is packed with unique sentiments, and floral borders. It pairs with the other Club Kits for May; however, I’m not going to use the other clubs to create my card. Some of you may only subscribe to this kit, so I’ll show you how I used this set without the other clubs.

To create this card I used my Misti Stamping Tool. This helped me stamp evenly up and down the card panel. First I stamped out the happy birthday sentiment and then I stamped out the floral stamps by shifting along the edge of the Misti. I created a diamond pattern by using all three of the floral strips. I used Grape Jelly Memento ink to stamp out these florals.

I cut down my stamped panel and glued it onto a piece of Black & White Stripes pattern paper. I then changed my mind on the sentiment that I stamped flat onto the purple panel, and I stamped it again on a piece of dark purple cardstock, heat embossed it with white embossing powder and popped it up on some foam strips.

I used the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms dies to create the flowers on this card.

Below is my process video!

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