10 Cards, 1 Kit | Spellbinders | Hey Foxy

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I created 10 cards with Spellbinders card kit called Hey Foxy. As always, I had a ball playing with their kit. I enjoy working with them because I never know what my card is going to end up looking like. I always have a plan in my head when I start designing a card, but the contents of these kits are so eclectic that I end up with something I didn’t imagine. They are usually very fast cards to put together too. They don’t involve a lot of coloring, although I usually find a way to use one of my art mediums. Check out my process video below, and I’ve included links to most of the products I used.

2020 Spellbinders Kit Dec THUMB

Card #1: Stamped Pattern Paper Card

I stamped out my own pattern paper for this card using all the pretty stamps from the set included in the kit. I used a beautiful brown-toned gray ink called Stone. I then used some of the ephemera pieces on top of it.

Image1

Card #2: Easy Wreath Birthday Card

This was the fastest of the cards to put together. I used pattern paper and ephemera pieces. I also used a few gold sequins for a touch of shine. (I love the green striped paper!)

Image2

Card #3: Butterflies & Flowers Card

The focal point of this card is the oval in the center of the card. I surrounded it with ephemera pieces and backed it with pattern paper. The font of these stamps is very pretty!

Image3

Card #4: New Home Card

This is one of my favorite cards! For the sunshine I used an old die from my stash and cut it out with the gold metallic paper. The sentiment fit inside it perfectly. I had to use the house pattern paper and the house ephemera pieces together to create a congrats-on-your-new-home card.

Image4

Card #5: Stripes & Florals Card

Again, love the striped paper–it has craft stripes! I really need more of this paper. There is nothing better than flowers and stripes together.

Image5

Card #6: Foxy Polka Dot Card

I intended this to be a masculine card, but I couldn’t help adding the pink flowers and the cute little fox. I used another die from my stash to create the rectangle piece. The die also cuts out the thin frame.

Image6

Card #7: Queen Fox Card

My favorite part of this whole card is the little crown on the fox’s head. So darling! The fox took some work to die cut and put together, but I love how it turned out.

Image7

Card #8: Happy Bear Card

This card kept changing as I was creating it. I tried to use the sticker that said, “happy,” but it was so thin that I ripped it. I used an ephemera piece instead. I just kept adding ephemera pieces to this card until I couldn’t fit anymore on.

Image8

Card #9: Stamped and Colored Pattern Paper Card

Card 9 is another of my favorites. I love the kraft card stock they usually always include in their kits. It has a very unique coloring to it. I stamped my patter paper using the stamps again, but this time I had to color them in. Card card stock demands colored pencils. I used my polychromos pencils to color in all the images.

Image9

Card #10: Dreams & Flowers Card

I had a lot of fun creating this card. I used a piece of the black card stock behind my images, and I think that makes it look so dramatic. I used Copic markers to color in the girl ephemera picture–her hair was so fun to color in! The sentiment is another sticker, and I love how it blends into the background.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Hello my crafty friends! This month’s card kit from Scrapping for Less is all about Valentine’s Day card making! I LOVE creating Valentine’s Day cards, and this kit helped me get a head-start. All the different collections from this kit is fabulous–it’s really like 4 kits in one. Below you’ll see all the ingredients to the Double Dip Sundae kit as well as the Banana Split level kit. I’m crafting with the Banana Split level–I absolutely love the extra little goody bag of products; it’s always amazing and coordinates perfectly with the different collections.

dec.fullcollection

dec.bananasplitdec.oneandtwodec.threeandfourdec.cardstockHere are all six cards I created using this kit!

Image7

Card #1: Woof You Be Mine Card

I love the stamps from this collection! The puppies and sentiments are adorable–great for creating Valentine’s for kids. I colored in my image with Copic markers and used teal blue markers to color in some background around him. To create this card I used one of the sketches selected for this kit. The sketches are fun to play along with–I end up creating cards that I wouldn’t have created on my own.

Image1

Card #2: Love You Furrever Card

I couldn’t get enough of this adorable doggy stamp. I stamped him again with black dye ink and colored him in with Copic markers. I cut out a piece of masking paper using a heart die and used the negative piece over the card panel. I also put a mask over the dog and ink blended around him using Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink. I really love the pattern paper from this collection, and I used a piece to mat my panel.

 

Image2

Card #3: Wood You Be Mine Card

Collection two contains more fabulous stamps and pattern paper. The inspiration for this card was another of the four card sketches and this piece of plaid paper I used as my background. (I’m gonna need more of this pattern paper!) I colored in the log and the bird with Prismacolor pencils, and I tried matching my coloring to the colors in the pattern paper. I used cool grays and blues and pinks, and I love how this card turned out.

Image3

Card #4: Friendship Card

The stamp set from collection three is so unique and beautiful. I adore it! It has such delicate lines to it, and then you have this cute heart where you can stamp your sentiment. I colored in the hands with more Prismacolor pencils, and I stamped the heart with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. I had to mask the heart while I stamped the hands, and visa versa. I loosely followed another card sketch to create this card.

Image5

Card #5: Arrow Hearts Stencil Card

Collection three also came with a beautiful stencil, and I had fun playing with it! I used some White Glitz Glitter Gel which I dyed pink using a spun sugar re-inker. I gently smeared it over the stencil onto a piece of navy blue card stock. I allowed it to dry for an hour. Next, I used the Love die from the extra pack of goodies you get when you subscribe to the Banana Split level card kit. I cut it out twice and glued them together to give my word die a bit of dimension. This was a fun and fast card to put together!

Image4

Card #6: Snail Mail Card

What a darling stamp set collection four includes! I love the little mail box, and I had to use the puppy stamp from collection one–they went so well together! I colored them in with Copic markers. I used the last of the four card sketches to put this card together. I like how this card turned out because it includes a lot of different papers.

I was asked to guest design again this month! I created a card using each collection from November’s Flavor of the Month Card kit. The theme is “A Vintage Christmas.” I absolutely love anything vintage–especially Christmas decorations! All the stamps and pattern papers from this kit have that fabulous vintage vibe–they were so much fun to craft with! Out of all the collections in this kit, I really couldn’t choose a favorite. Each collection is awesome, and I loved how all my cards turned out. Check out my YouTube Video below and supply links!

IMG_9171

Card #1: Victorian Christmas Card

I stamped this Victorian house onto a piece of kraft card stock from the kit and colored it in using colored pencils. I pulled out my Gelly Roll Pens to add bright glowing colors to the twinkle lights hanging from the eves of the house. I then stamped the snowflakes from the set using white pigment ink.

IMG_9161

IMG_9162

Card #2: Christmas Post Card

The stamp from this collections is from LDRS, and of the back of the packaging they show a picture of this stamp already colored in. I used this as my inspiration, and colored in my card just like it. I love all the white details they left uncolored on their example. I used a mixture of my Prismacolors and Polychromos pencils to color in this scene.

I used one of the sketches to put this card together. I don’t often create square cards, but I had fun putting this one together. It is a 5″ x 5″ card, and I cut out the square window on the red pattern paper as well as the striped pattern paper using a square die.

IMG_9163

Card #3: Jolly Santa Card

I love this Santa image! I’m going to be using this stamp again to make more Christmas cards this year. I colored him in using colored pencils again, but I used a very soft color palette. His hat looks more pink than red, and I love it! I stamped him onto a piece of Insulation Pink card stock. It was my inspiration for coloring in my Santa. It’s such a soft pink–you can’t buy this card stock anymore, so I’m going to hoard the rest of my 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. Lol! I used another card sketch to pull this card together.

IMG_9164

IMG_9165

Card #4: An Ornamental Christmas Card

I used even more colored pencils this time. I love using them on kraft card stock, so that’s what I did. I masked off the flower that was on this bulb so that I could stamp the sentiment there instead. I heat embossed it with Alabaster White embossing powder, but before I heat embossed it, I just stamped it with embossing ink, colored it in, and then heat embossed it. This allowed me to color in the image without having to go around the raised embossed lines.

IMG_9166

IMG_9167

Card #5: Noel Ornament Card

I love this die from the Banana Split level! I wanted to cut it out with some glitter paper, so I found a piece that matched really well with the pattern paper from the kit. I cut it out two more times with the die and glued them together. This added more dimension to the die cut.

IMG_9168

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!

Card Kits, Christmas Card 2017, Colored Pencils, Scrapping for Less

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.

Thank you for hopping along with us! Have a wonderful weekend!

Arteza Everblend Markers, Card Kits, Colored Pencils, Fall Themed Cards, Floral Cards, Thank You Cards

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

IMG_8712

Have a wonderful day!!

Card Kits, Colored Pencils, Pink & Main

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!

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS August Card Kit 2019 | Look for the Rainbows

Hi my crafty friends, I hope you are all having a wonderful day! When I received Simon Says Stamp’s September card like last week, I dug right in. This card kit is full of pretty things. I love floral stamp sets, and I did a lot of different techniques using their stamp set called, “Look for the Rainbows.”

2019 SSS Sept Card Kit THUMB

Card #1: Colored Pencil on Pattern Paper

Polychromos Pencils: Cobalt Green 156, Cobalt Turquoise 153, Light Red-Violet 135, Olive Green Yellowish 173, Chrome Oxide Green 278, Dark Naples Ochre 184, Indian Red 192

I love block text pattern paper, and their is nothing prettier thank stamping and coloring in the flowers right on this paper. I used colored pencils that matches the color of the text. You don’t need to add a lot of color, and these are very fast cards to put together. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on black card stock and popped it up off the card with foam tape.

Card #2: Rainbow Flower Card

Polychromos Pencils: Medium Flesh 131. Deep Scarlet Red 219, Magenta 133, Cadmium Yellow Lemon 205, Cadmium Orange 111, May Green 170, Permanent Green 266, Light Phthalo Green 162, Ultramarine 120, Helioblue-Reddish 151, Dark Naple Ochre 184

I colored in my flower image to match the rainbow pattern paper. I liked how this pattern paper isn’t your usual bright rainbow colors–it’s more muted. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pattern paper that I selectively die cut with an oval die.

Card #3: No-Line Watercolor Flower

I stamped the flower onto a pieces of Arches Cold Press watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. The ink melted really well into the Daniel Smith watercolors I used to paint this flower. No-line watercoloring takes time because you don’t want to paint petals that are next to each other. If you do this they will bleed together, and you won’t get any distinction between the petals. I really loved this bright green pattern paper that I used for the background. I stamped the sentiment onto the Arches paper as well, and used a watercolor pencils to color it in the same color as the flower.

Card #4: Colored Pencils on Pattern Paper, Again 🙂

The pattern paper in this kit is fabulous, and I really love polka-dot paper. I stamped this flower cluster with Simon Says Stamp Intense black ink. Sometimes colored pencils can dull your lines; however, I didn’t do a lot of coloring on this panel. I wanted to allow the pattern of the paper show through.

Card #5: Orange & Teal Fall Time Card

Unfortunately, I lost some footage when I was creating this card. I stamped the flower and stem onto a piece of kraft card stock and used polychromos colored pencils to color them in. I used mostly flicking motions to give it some bold stripes of color and texture. I used a wide range of orange pencils and even a white colored pencil to add highlights. Again, I used a lot of paper from this kit to put behind my flower.

Card #6: 3-D Embossed Foil Card

For this card I selectively cut out a piece of the pattern paper, so the large butterfly could be my focal image. The 3-D embossing folder is fabulous!! Just look at all the detail and shine!

Card #7: Banner & Birds Card

You can probably tell that I really love my faux stitch banner dies. I keep them out on my desk. I stamped out and colored in the birds from the stamp set. I used my Arteza Everblend Art Markers to color them in.

Card #8: Pattern Paper Flower Bouquet Card

I again stamped the flowers onto a piece of pattern paper; however, this time I cut them out and adhered them to a piece of the Audrey Blue card stock. I used a light pink colored pencil over the petals to add detail to the flowers and bring cohesion to my bouquet.

Card #9: Thank You Flower Frame Card

This is my least favorite card, but I wanted to include it just the same. I should include more of my cards that I chalk up to, “I tried.” Lol! I cut the flowers out of the pattern paper–I thought I was being clever, but I should have just used the whole piece of paper. I glued them around my oval frame die cut and my sentiment. I glued on this bright green frame because I felt the frame got lost behind all these flowers. I think I’d be fun if people posted their, “I Tried” cards for us all to see. 🙂

Card #10: Repeat

Arteza Everblend Art Markers: Watermelon Pink A487 & Raspberry Red A45, Amber Yellow A9424 & Desert Sand A9421, Brandy Rose A2596 & Cocoa Brown A2499, Pumpkin Orange A9423 & Vermilion A422

I love this fall time card. It was fast and easy to put together, and I love how it turned out. It’s amazing what you can do with just one stamp sometimes. I used the leaf sprig and stamped it repeatedly over my kraft panel. I used my new Arteza Everblend Markers to color these leaves in various fall colors. The metallic paper behind it is just fabulous. I’m going to used more metallic papers in my card crafting.
