10 Cards, 1 Kit | Spellbinders October Card Kit 2019 | Sparkling Holidays

Happy holiday card crafting to you all! If you like to send out holiday cards, this is a great kit to use. I make 10 cards in this video, and I will make many more with the left-over supplies. It’s fun to send out a unique card to everyone on your Christmas list. It can be nice to mass produce one fabulous design. However, it’s more fun in my opinion to craft a variety of cards so you don’t get bored making the same card over and over.

In this kit Spellbinders offers some very nontraditional colors to create holiday cards with, but I enjoyed using the purples, pinks, and soft blues. I always love their packs of ephemera pieces and their pattern papers. It makes creating cards effortless and fun!

Arteza Watercolor Half Pans Review | Floral Card Project

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely day! I have another watercolor paint review for you. Arteza very generously sent me their 36 Half Pan Watercolor set. They are beautiful paints! I wanted to use them on a floral card, and I thought this stamp set from Memory Box would be perfect. I love a big floral stamp–this one completely covers an A2 size card. This is a stamp I purchased from Simon Says Stamp during their Stamptember celebration.

2019 Arteza Pan Watercolors Card THUMB

I inked it up with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink which is a waterproof ink. I stamped in onto a piece of Arteza 100% cotton watercolor paper, and then I  had a ball coloring this beautiful image with these beautiful paints. They are highly pigmented, vivid, and a dream to work with.

IMG_8954

After my painting was dry, I inked it up again with the same ink and poured on some clear embossing powder. After I melted the embossing powder, this made my stamp lines crisp and shiny, and it added a lot to my card project. I cut down my panel with a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 faux stitch die. It was hard for me to cut down this image, but I used a leftover scrap from this panel on the inside on my card.

Scrapping for Less | October 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Reveal | Christmas Around the World

75086829_10157836379468615_8751927491251142656_o (1)

I was an elementary school teacher for many years. During Christmas time for Social Studies we studied Christmas traditions around the world. This was my absolute favorite time of the year with my students. So, for our Christmas Around the World card kit I have chosen my most favorite countries we studied to feature.

Mexico: Great food and wonderful traditions centered around Papa Noel.

Sweden: St. Lucia was my favorite tradition in Sweden we studied.

Australia: My students got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was hot and summer there during Christmas.

Germany: Of course what would a study be without studying the origin of the Christmas tree.

Please sit back and enjoy the elements we put together for our Christmas Around the World Flavor of the Month Card Kit. Make sure you leave our designers some love on their blog and hop back to the SFL blog to enter the Rafflecopter. You can purchase the kit on Scrapping for Less on the Subscription page.

____________________________________________________________________________________________
Hello, everyone!
Welcome to my blog! I am guest designing for Scrapping for Less for their October Flavor of the Month Card Kit. I designed a card for each of the four different collections included in this kit. Check out my process video below! I love Scrapping for Less’ card kits, especially their October kits because they are Christmas themed. It’s a great kit to help you get started on your Christmas cards.
I really love the theme of this year’s kit–Christmas around the world. There are so many fun and unique stamps, papers and crafty goodies inside. I especially love the Papa Noel Stamp along with the Feliz Navidad sentiment! For each of these cards I used one of the Card Sketches that Scrapping for Less provides.
Here is my process video for these cards! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Card #1: Papa Noel
I stamped out Papa Noel on some Stonehenge colored pencil paper–see link below. This paper is fabulous to use with your color pencils of choice. It’s smooth, but it has a fine texture that pulls the pigments off your colored pencils. I used odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps to smooth out my coloring.
IMG_8876
Card #2: Santa in Australia
For this card I stamped out the images on a circle die cut, and I used Arteza alcohol Markers to color it in.
Here are the markers I used: Santa – Pale Peach; Trunks, Beard & Ball of Hat: White Diamond, Cloudy Gray; Trunks & Hat – Red, Ruby Red, and Apple Green; Surf Board – Lime Green & Tuscan Sun; Beach – Jasmine Yellow & Beach Sand; Ocean – Arctic Blue
IMG_8878
Card #3: Easy Ephemera and Pattern Paper Card
This card was the quickest of the set to create. This card leans heavily on the cuteness of the pattern paper and ephemera pieces, and they support it well! I love all the pattern papers in these collections!
IMG_8880
IMG_8882
Card #4: O Christmas Tree Card
I love a great tree stamp, and this one really tickled my fancy. I stamped it out with some green Ombre ink that gives it even more dimension and interest. I stamped the star with yellow ink.
IMG_8883
Next on the Blop Hop is Stacy from Craft-a-holic Momma!
Thank you for hopping along with us! Have a wonderful weekend!

Arteza Watercolor Pencils & Paper Review | Hello Bluebird Pumpkin Time Stamps

Hello everyone! Thank you for stopping by! I am reviewing Arteza’s watercolor pencils and their 100% cotton watercolor pad today. I’m also using a darling stamp set from Hello Bluebird called Pumpkin Time. Thirdly, because of one the the sentiments from this stamp set, I’m also going to talk about one of my favorite authors, L.M. Montgomery.

Let’s start with the Arteza Watercolor pencils & paper first. Watercolor pencils is one of my favorite mediums to use. They give you a lot more control than pan watercolors, and they’re fun to use, especially if you like colored pencils like I do. I have a few different sets of watercolor pencils, and I’m very happy to add Arteza’s set to my arsenal.  They sent me the 72 pencil set, and I love the bright and vibrant colors. They look beautiful on the paper even before you activate them with your paintbrush. The watercolor paper they sent along with them is 100% cotton which I prefer to use these days. I used to enjoy using Canson XL watercolor paper, and it’s not a bad paper, but once I tried out all cotton papers, it’s hard to go back. The colors blend and move so beautifully on 100% cotton papers. They are more expensive, but as a card maker, the paper lasts me a long time.

Here is a link to the free swatch chart I created for these pencils:

Arteza Watercolor Pencils Swatch Chart

The stamp set that I chose to use with the Arteza watercolor pencils and paper is from Hello Bluebird. This is the first time I’ve used one of their stamp sets. I love fox images, and this fox is pushing a wheelbarrow of pumpkins! I just couldn’t resist it. All of the sentiments in this set are beautiful, especially one in particular.

The sentiment I used on my card says, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” This was written by L.M Montgomery–famous for her Anne of Green Gables series. I have very fond memories of reading these to my grandmother who had failing eyesight and couldn’t read anymore. After the PBS series came out in the 80’s, they started re-publishing all of Montgomery’s other works. I gobbled them up. One of my favorites is “The Blue Castle.” It’s sad and funny, and I’ve read it several times. A close second of my favorites is Jane of Lantern Hill. I also really love the Emily of New Moon series. All of her books are great reads!! Let me know if you’ve read any of these, or if you do decide to read one, let me know how you liked it! I love book talk!

Here is a picture of the Octoberesque card I created using all the products I mentioned above. It’s was so fun using Arteza’s watercolor pencils, and I love how the card turned out!

Here is a list of the Arteza Watercolor Pencils I used: Fox – Pumpkin, Blood Orange, Cinnamon, Smoke & Pink Macaroon; Vest – Pewter & Charcoal; Scarf – Moss & Pink Macaroon; Pumpkins – Pumpkin, Blood Orange & Matcha; Wheelbarrow – Burnt Ochre, Charcoal, Pewter, Espresso; Mouse – Elephant Gray & Pink Macaroon;  Leaves – Honey, Pumpkin, Blood Orange, Moss, Matcha, Burnt Ochre

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS October Card Kit 2019 |Thankful Flowers

Hello everyone! We are in the midst of a gorgeous fall here in Chicagoland. I love creating cards with all the traditional fall-time colors, and I went all-out fall with Simon Says Stamp’s October card kit. The floral images and the sentiments in the stamp set form this kit are lovely! However, its the kind of set that you can use all year round.

I created these cards using a lot of different art mediums, and a lot of different techniques. I always have a ball creating with SSS’s card kits, and this one was no exception.  You will see pictures of all the cards I created, my process video, and supply links below.

IMG_8701

Card #1: Note of Thanks Card

I stamped the flower image from the Thankful Blooms set onto a piece of darling pattern paper and colored it in with Faber Castell colored pencils. A small strip of metallic paper from the kit, brings this card to the next level.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Cinnamon 189, Light Purple Pink 128, Fuchsia 123, Red-Violet 194, Earth Green Yellowish 168, Permanent Green Olive, 167, Cream 102, Venetian Red 190

IMG_8702

Card #2:Black & White Thanks Card with Metallic Sentiment

This black and white floral pattern paper is beautiful enough to stand on it’s own, so I just added my sentiment, a few gemstones and called it done.

IMG_8703

Card #3: Double Emboss on Patter Paper Card

I embossed the floral image as well as the sentiment with Penny embossing powdered onto a piece of pattern paper. I love all the browns of the embossing, the lines on the pattern paper and the dark chocolate card base. I added a pop of interest by coloring in the flowers and leaves with some Distress Oxide inks. Very fast coloring!

IMG_8704

Card #4: Fall Flowers Card

This card took the longest to put together, but it’s my favorite. I colored in the flowers with alcohol markers from Arteza–These flowers are the star of the show; however, I really love the cute pattern paper, and the bold thanks die cut.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers – Tuscan Sun, Sunflower Yellow, Amber Yellow, Macaron Pink, Coral, Tea Green, Olive Green

IMG_8705

Card #5: Diagonal Pattern Paper Cards

This card design in a two-fer. I created two cards in the same time it takes to create one card. I cut down the pattern papers into 5 1/4 by 4 inches, and then I put them together and cut them out diagonally. I added a stripe of metallic card stock and some gemstones to add some bling. I was able to stamp the sentiments right onto the pattern paper because they are bold enough to not get lost.

IMG_8706

IMG_8707

Card #6: White Embossed Pattern Card

I really enjoyed working with this dark chocolate card stock from the kit. A lot of card crafters, it seems, don’t like to work with brown, but I love it! I embossed the large flower cluster several times around the dark chocolate card stock. I used the same thanks sentiment die on this card, a few iridescent bubbles, and that is all. The beauty of the  stamp speaks for itself.

IMG_8708

Card #7: Wood Grain Flower Card

I used my Prismacolor pencils to color in the flowers on this card. I really love the wood grain pattern paper, and I though a wood grain frame would compliment it well. I stamped my sentiment right onto the pattern paper even though the letters are very small. The pattern paper was light enough to allow me to do this.

Prismacolor Pencils: Orange Flower: Spanish Orange, Orange, Pumpkin Orange, Limepeel, Kelp Green  Pink Flower: Deco Pink, Pink, Neon Pink, Magenta Limepeel, Kelp Green

IMG_8710

Card #8: Masculine Thank You Card

This was the fasted card to put together. I simply stamped the flower inside the squares of this plaid pattern paper. I used a strip of metallic paper to add a pop of interest to this card. I then adhered everything down onto a black card base on which I heat embossed the sentiment.

IMG_8709

Card #9: Watercolor Card with Tiny Notes

I just had to watercolor in these flowers, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I used another piece of pattern paper behind the flower cluster. I stamped two tiny sentiments onto cream colored card stock and tucked them behind the flower cluster.

IMG_8711

Card #10: Stamped Pattern Background Card

I stamped all the small images from the stamp set onto a piece of kraft card stock. I adore the dots stamps. I’m keep though out on my desk, because I know I will use them a lot. They aren’t perfect circle dots–they’re wonky dots! I love anything wonky! I feel a bit wonky myself oftentimes. Lol!

After I was done coloring in my background with Prismacolor pencils, I felt it just needed a little something more, so I added a little bit of teal colored pencil on some of the images. It just needed a little pop of color. It didn’t need any gemstones this time; the background is busy enough. I used a piece of metallic paper to mat it. However, I wanted the metallic paper to show up a little more, so I cut slits into two of the corners and slid my panel into it. Kinda different but fun!

Prismacolor Pencils: Goldenrod 1034, Yellow Ochre 942, Limepeel 1005, Artichoke 1098, Olive Green 911, Kelp Green 1090, Light Aqua 992

Pumpkin Latte Fall Themed Cards 2019 | Newton’s Nook

It’s time to create some fall-time cards!! I found this darling stamp set from Newton’s Nook called Pumpkin Latte, and I just love the images in it!! I started out with one design and then mixed it up to create 4 cards with this fabulous stamp set.

Image6

Card #1: Latte Lady

I started out with my background for this card. I used several Distress Oxides to blend out a background for my latte lady. I colored in the images with some alcohol markers from Arteza. I used the coordinating dies to cut everything out, and then I simply adhered them to my card base. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Skin – Pale Peach, Peach, Apricot; Coat – Carolina Blue, Sapphire Blue; Pumpkins – Yellow Ochre, Sienna Brown, Vermilion, Pumpkin Orange, Apricot; Skirt – Peaches & Cream, Dolphin Gray; Hair – Jasmin Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Ginger; Boots – Ginger, Hazelnut Brown

Image4

Card #2: Latte Lady with Pumpkins

The background on this card is darker than the first one because I blended on a lot more distress oxide. I used more images that I colored in with alcohol markers. This card is very similar to the first one.

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Skin – Pale Peach, Peach, Apricot; Coat – Carolina Blue, Sapphire Blue; Pumpkins – Yellow Ochre, Sienna Brown, Vermilion, Pumpkin Orange, Apricot; Skirt – Peaches & Cream, Dolphin Gray; Hair – Jasmin Yellow, Yellow Ochre, Ginger; Boots – Ginger, Hazelnut Brown

Image5

Card #3: Stamped Pattern Background Card

I love creating stamped pattern backgrounds. I used pigment ink to do this, as it stamps out dark and crisp without a stamp positioner. I blended on some carved pumpkin Distress Oxide ink to create a focal point for my latte lady.

Image7

Card #4: Latte Lady on Kraft Card Stock

This card is different from the other 3 because I stamped my images on to kraft card stock and colored them in with some Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I used a banner die cut to spotlight my latte lady.

Colored Pencils: Skin –   Coat – Cold Grey II, Cold Grey III, Cold Gray IV, Cobalt Blue; Pumpkins – Cadmium Orange, Dark Cadmium Orange, Light Yellow Ochre, Caput Mortuum, May Green, Olive Green Yellowish; Jeans – Cobalt Blue, Prussian Blue Hair – Burnt Siena, Raw Umber, Dark Naples Ochre

Jack-O’-Lanterns & Gelly Roll Pens | 2 Cards Featuring The Rabbit Hole Designs Stamps

Hello everyone! Happy autumn!! I felt it was time to pull out my Gelly Roll pens to create a couple of Halloween cards. I came across a new-to-me stamp company called The Rabbit Hole Designs. I just love these two jack-o-lantern stamp sets called Pumpkin Hair Don’t Care, and Pumpkin Friends. These stamps were perfect to use with this gel pen technique. The lines of the stamps are very sketchy, and that helps to add shading and more interest to the cards.

I am also very excited to announce the launch of my very own Jackie’s Craft Table Glue!! I use liquid glue on practically every card I create, and my glue is a strong, archival quality glue that dries clear. In my slightly biased opinion–lol–it’s as good as any other liquid adhesive out on the market, and it’s cheaper. It’s also super cute with its bright pink cap! Please check out my Etsy shop if you are interested in this new product.

IMG_8555

Card #1: Pumpkin Hair Don’t Card

On this card I stamped out the image with white pigment ink, allowed it to dry for a few minutes, and then drew right over the lines with some Moonlight Gelly Roll Pens. The moonlight pens show up really well on the black card stock. I also used a few Metallic Gelly Rolls. This card was so fun to create, as well as fast and very cute!!

IMG_8551

Card #2: Pumpkin Friends

On my second card I stamped the image with dark brown pigment ink. Then I used an ink smearing technique. All you need to do is put down a little section of ink at a time and then smudge it with your finger. You have to work in small sections to be able to smear the ink before it dries. I left a lot of the kraft card stock showing through because I love the look of it on these pumpkins. I re-stamped my images after I finished coloring them to crisp up the lines–you can skip this step if you want to. I made a mask for my image and then blended on two different Distress Oxide Inks to add a little bit of background color behind them.

5 Cards, 1 Kit | Pink & Main August Card Kit 2019 | Fruit Salad

What is cuter than a fruit stamp set? I loved this kit from Pink & Main with all it’s bold pattern papers, sequins, rhinestones, and twine–and especially the 6 x 6 stamp set. The set provides the outline stamps and the solid stamps; so, you can color in the images or stamp them in. I created 5 fun cards using this kit.

IMG_8373 - Copy

Card #1: Strawberry & Plaid Card

I usually always jump into a kit using my favorite of the stamps and my favorite of the pattern paper. They do most of the work for you. This was a 100% stamped card–no coloring involved, which was unusual for me. If you have a stamp positioning tool, it makes a card like this go very fast.

IMG_8374

 

IMG_8375

Card #2: Action Wobbler Lemon

Another fast and easy card with a big impact. Action wobblers are fun to use, and how could the recipient not love it! Minimal coloring on this card–I only filled in the lemon with a few colored pencils to add some dimension.

IMG_8377

IMG_8378

Card #3: Row of Fruit Card

This card is my favorite! I absolutely love the look of colored pencils on kraft card stock. These fruit images were really fun to color in!! I added highlights with a white gel pen, and this added a lot of charm to the card. Some of the highlight I simply used a white colored pencil.

IMG_8379

Card #4: Distress Ink Fruit Card

I had a vision for this card when I started out, and the end result turned out nothing like the vision I had in my head. Lol! That’s how it is sometimes; however, I love how it turned out in the end. This card went through a lot of changes. My plan was to ink smoosh and then stamp the flowers onto it using the pink embossing powder in the kit. I learned that I need to practice my ink smooshing skills.

IMG_8380

Card #5: Watermelon Card

I realized when creating this kit that the watermelon image was my favorite of the set. Look how cute it stamped out!! All stamping, no coloring for this card too. It should have been very quick and easy, but I couldn’t decide on my positioning of the melons. That took me a while. Lol!

Arteza Everblend Art Markers Review | Card Projects using Funny Farm Set from Stampers Anonymous

Hello crafty friends! I have another art medium to review for you today! Arteza very kindly sent me their 120 set of Everblend Art Markers. These are alcohol based markers, and I love working with alcohol markers; so, I was very excited to try these out!

I created 8 cards using these markers. I also used a new stamp set from Stampers Anonymous called Funny Farm. These barnyard animals are so adorable! The markers have two sides–a fine tip or bullet and a chisel tip. I used the fine tip side to color in these images, and I used the chisel tip side to color in backgrounds behind my animals. I used the chisel tip on these markers more than I use the chisel tip on my Copic alcohol markers. The Everblend chisel tip is significantly larger than the Copic’s chisel tip. It makes coloring backgrounds–putting down a lot of color–very quick and easy.

I also really loved the fine tip. It made getting into the small bits of the images so easy! You can buy the fine tips to put in your Copic markers, and I considered doing this at one time; however, it was just too expensive.

I used these markers on white card stock and kraft card stock. I love the bright, bold look of these markers on white card stock, but the de-saturated look you get on your kraft paper is a lot of fun too!

I am slowly adding to my Copic marker collection–love my Copics. However, Copics are very expensive–I have been collecting them for over 3 years now, and I’m nowhere near having the complete set. The Arteza’s Everblend markers sets have a fabulous price point. They are not refillable: however, you can buy them open stock, and they do have replaceable tips. These markers blended beautifully!

Bottom line–I love these markers!!

I created a swatch chart for these markers. I always like to swatch out any new mediums I’ve added to my collection. Here is the link if you want a copy of this chart: Arteza Everblend Art Markers Swatch Chart in PDF format

Cards 1 & 2: Piggy Cards
