Card #1: Hello Lovely Butterflies Card

May Blog Hop Photo 1

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

May Blog Hop Photo 3

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.

Blog Pic Card 1

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.

Blog Pic Card 3

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.

Blog Pic Card 5

Arteza Art Products, Colored Pencils, Floral Cards, Not 2 Shabby, Slimline Cards

Trinity Stamps Slimline Cards | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Projects | April 2020

Hello everyone! Welcome! Slimline cards are becoming so popular, and I’ve certainly joined the bandwagon. Trinity Stamps has some new fun products to help you create fabulous slimline cards. When I saw that they now have a wonky stitch die for slimlines, I knew I had to have it. I also picked up their Slimline Stripes Stencils (you get two in this set)–I love using stripes on my cards!

For my design team project for the Not 2 Shabby Shop, I created 3 slimline cards. I also used my design team stamp of the month called Petals & Pallets by Concord & 9th to stamp out all the pretty flowers for my cards. I have a 10% off coupon for you to use at the shop: NTS10

Thumbnail

Card #1: Flower Pallets Card

I used the coordinating Petals & Pallets dies to cut out this darling pallet with white card stock. I then stamped the wood grain stamp over it with gray ink. I had fun stamping out a lot of flowers, and I added dimension to them with my Arteza colored pencils. This added a lot of depth to them. You can hardly see the pallets for all the flowers, but I love how this one turned out!

Image2 (4)

Card #2: Hydrangea Forever Friends Card

I used the slimline stripes stencil on my colored card stock. I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink over it, and this gave the card a subtle tone-on-tone look. I love the huge forever stamp from the Petals & Pallets stamp set, and it fit just perfectly at the top of the card. I added a bow around my hydrangeas and a few flower blossoms as accents.

Image3 (3)

Card #3: Grateful Daisies Card

I love stripes with florals, especially black stripes. I used the second stencil from this set and some Black Soot ink to create this panel. I used the pallet die again for this card. This time I cut it out with brown card stock and stamped it with brown ink. I popped up this die cut piece with Arteza foam tape. I also used foam tape behind two of the flowers. The sentiment fit perfectly between the black stripes.

Spellbinders, Watercolor Pencils

Whimsical & Wild Jane Davenport Stamps using Watercolor Pencils

Hello everyone! I’m here again for Spellbinders, and I get to show you their new Jane Davenport stamps sets in the Whimsical & Wild line. The two sets I have are Elephant Dream and Horse Hug. All of the stamps in this line are so enchanting; there are nine of them.

I used watercolor pencils to paint these images. I wanted my cards to be soft and pastel and dream-like. The hot press watercolor paper also helped me achieve this. Hot press paper is very smooth. I had so much fun with these stamp sets! Now I have to get the other seven sets!

Thumbnail

Card #1: Dream Big Card

I started off with the elephant card. I put down a light application of the watercolor pencils. Once everything was colored in, I pulled out a water-brush and blended the paints together. I used Arteza watercolor pencils; they melt out beautifully. I added more shadows and intensified the colors by grabbing the pigment right off the watercolor pencil. When the painting was dry, I even added another layer of color with colored pencils. However, I could have just used the same watercolor pencils. These watercolor pencils work great as colored pencils–no water required. I put a soft background around the elephant and the girl with green and blue watercolor pencils.

Arteza Watercolor Pencils:

Elephant: Elephant Gray, Pewter; Girl: Skin – Peaches & Cream, Burnt Ochre; Hair – Cinnamon; Dress – Peony, Pink Macaroon, Peaches & Cream; Background – Periwinkle, Matcha

Elephant Dream

Card #2: Never Stop Dreaming Card

I love how these images are drawn! I colored in the horse with different gray tones from the elephant. For it’s mane, I used a brown and a purple together. I wanted to add a little magic to it. The girl’s hair was a lot of fun to color too! I went in with several layers of watercolor pencils on this panel and even ended up with a dry layer of the watercolor pencils. I used the same periwinkle blue watercolor pencil for the background in this card.

Arteza Watercolor Pencils:

Horse: Space Gray, Pewter, Charcoal; Horse Mane – Cocoa, Purple Iris; Horse Cheeks – Peaches and Cream; Girl: Skin – Peaches And Cream; Burnt Ochre; Hair – Honey, Cinnamon; Stars – Tuscan Red; Background – Periwinkle

Horse Hug

Here is a link to the swatch chart I created for the set of 72 Arteza Watercolor Pencils:

Spellbinders Flourished Fretwork Collection | Card Projects | April 2020

Today I’m crafting with some gorgeous new cutting dies and stamps from Spellbinders’ Flourished Fretwork collection! I love how intricate these dies are! I’m using two different sets from this collection. For the card on the left, I’m using Shapeabilities Sentimental Finery Etched Dies, and for the card on the right, I’m using All Occasion Sentiments Stamps and Dies Set. This set comes with some beautiful red rubber stamp sentiments. I had so much fun crafting with these beautiful sets!

Both Cards

Card #1: Just Saying Hello Card

The Sentimental Finery Dies Set comes with four dies. I cut them all out separately for my card, but there are many ways you can use them. The die cuts look gorgeous no matter what paper you use, but for my card I wanted to use bright colors mixed with a navy card stock. My favorite die from this set has to be the small rectangle die. It’s meant for threading ribbon through it, and that’s exactly what I did. I love it!

Card #2: Praying for You Card

For my second card I used the All Occasion Sentiments Stamps and Dies Set. This set comes with three dies and beautiful sentiment stamps for every occasion. The colors of my card center around the colors found in this piece of butterfly pattern paper. The card base is dark gray and the card stock behind the filigree die is light gray. I love how this bright green card stock I used on the filigree die looks with all the grays. This design would be fast and easy to mass produce in a variety of different card stocks.

Colored Pencils, Floral Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Adding Shading to Solid Stamped Images | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project | April 2020

Welcome to my blog! I hope you are having a fabulous day! I’m stamping with solid floral stamps today. I love solid stamps because you get to color with ink. They look darling as is, but I took it one step further and added some shading to the flowers in two different ways.

The stamp set I’m using is from Concord & 9th, and it’s called Petals and Pallets. This is an older set, but it is gorgeous! You can pick it up at the Not 2 Shabby Shop. Here is a 10% off coupon code: N2S10 Link are below!

The first way I added shading is stamping the image with a light shade of ink and then tapping a darker color onto the edges of the stamp and stamping again. However, you need a stamp positioner for this technique.

The second way to add depth is color over the images with colored pencils. You don’t have to color over the whole thing, but just add darker colors where the shadows would be. I pulled out my polychromos colored pencils and deepened the color at the base of each petal. This really makes a flat image turn into something more interesting to look at, and it’s fun to do! 

For my background for these flowers I stamped out the wood plank stamps. There are two of them in this set, so you can really mix up the faux wood grain pattern on your projects. I’ve mentioned before that I love flowers and stripes together. I am also loving flowers and faux wood grain together. The wood grain stamps in this set are so much fun to use!

Spellbinders, Spellbinders Small Die of the Month

Wedding Card using Spellbinders Small Die of the Month | April 2020

Hello everyone! I’m crafting with Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for April, and I never had so much fun with a set of dies! This set of cutting dies is so well thought out. It was made to coordinate with another set called Truckin’ Though the Seasons. However, I used only the dies that came in this month’s set. There are 16 dies in all, and my favorites are the ones that make up this adorable diamond ring, and the bow that you can easily turn into a daisy. Oh, and the word dies are fabulous too!!

SmDieApril3Below you will see what the dies look like. You also get a heart balloon die with inserts that spell out the word, Just–as is Just Married. The sentiments in this set say Forever, Holidays, Married, and Happy. This set of dies is the 4th addition to a very popular series of dies. They are called, So Many Sentiments Etched Dies and Even More Sentiments Etched Dies, Truckin Through the Seasons.

SmDiesApril

With these dies you can also create Christmas cards. However, I needed more wedding cards for my stash, so that’s what I created. The picture below shows the shine of the metallic paper I used to cut out the ring dies. I also used silver glitter paper to cut out the diamond and a strip of paper down the side. This set was so much fun to play with!

SmDieApril2

Below you’ll see the darling truck dies from Truckin’ Through the Seasons. (I still need to pick this set up!)

And here are the word dies from Even More Sentiments Etched Dies.

Colored Pencils, Easter/Spring Cards, Embossing Folders, Floral Cards, in love arts shop

Spring Cards | Techniques & Inspiration using In Love Arts Shop Products | April 2020

Hello everyone! I have a lot of fun card crafting techniques to inspire you today! I’m using more fabulous products from the In Love Arts Shop, and I created five springtime cards using them. For each card I use a different technique. I had so much fun putting these together; I hope you are inspired to try some, if not all, of these techniques!

I also have a coupon code for 15% off your purchase at the In Love Arts Shop : S5581.

Card #1: Good Times Wave Card

All that this card involves is a lot of die cutting, but I love how it turned out. This wave die cut is a lot of fun to play with! I cut out two panels at the same time and kept switching out the colors. I covered a piece of white card stock with tape runner and paper pieced it all back together.

Image7

Card #2: Layer Stamping Peony Card

Layer stamping is so much fun to do, and it’s great to have stamps like this in your stash for the days you don’t feel like coloring. I love the painterly look of these peonies. I also used a scalloped die to cut out a pretty edge to the gray card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Image8

Card #3: Tone-on-Tone Hello Spring Card

I love background stamps, and the delicate leaves on this one are so pretty. I had fun stamping it out several times and on several different colors of card stock. I cut them out into banners and adhered them down flat onto a kraft card stock panel. I used die cuts for my sentiment, and this card was done.

Image9

Card #4: Colored Pencil Flowers Card

I love big floral images, and I pulled out my Prismcolor pencils to color this in. I cut off two corners with the wave die and used some striped pattern paper behind it.

Prismacolor Pencils: Purple Flowers – Violet 932, Lilac 956, White 938; Flower Centers – Sunburst Yellow 917, Beige Sienna 1080; Leaves – Peacock Blue 1027, Light Aqua 992, Light Green 920; Fans – White 938, Deco Peach 1013, Electric Blue 1040, Background – Sand 940

Card #5: Leaves Embossed Birthday Card

With embossing folders you can create some very fast cards. All I did on this card is emboss it, ink blend some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink onto the panel, and add a die cut sentiment. However, I decided to add another step–I used a very sharp Prismacolor pencil to color in some of the leaves around my sentiment. I also added some translucent enamel dots and Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen over my sentiment, so maybe it wasn’t that fast after all–Lol!

Prismacolor Pencil: Leaves: Apple Green 912
