Colored Pencil on Colored Cardstock | Spellbinders Clear Stamp Club & New Colored Cardstock!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I hope you are having a relaxing, crafty weekend! I am using one of my very favorite card crafting techniques today. I’m using my colored pencils on colored cardstock. The stamp set I’m using is Spellbinders’ March Clear Stamp called Wonderful Spring. It includes 3 of the most charmingly illustrated bunnies for spring. You can make up spring or Easter cards with this pretty set.

10 Cards, 1 Kit & Giveaway! | Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit | Love You Beary Much

Hello! Welcome to my blog. It’s been a while since I’ve produced a 10 Cards, 1 Kit video using Simon Says Stamp’s monthly card kit. I love their card kits, but I’ve been pulled in other directions lately. When I saw their January card kit called Love You Beary Much, I knew I had to get it and make up some Valentines with it.

Also, today is my birthday, so I’m giving away two $25 gift certificates to Simon Says Stamp. To enter the giveaway all you have to do is be a subscriber to my YouTube channel and leave a comment there telling me your go-to art medium when creating your cards. My favorite art medium is colored pencils. For my birthday my family gave me a set of Caran d’Ache Luminance colored pencils. I’ve been wanting these colored pencils for a long time. I love my Prismacolors and my Faber Castells, but the Caran d’ache set it the Mercedes Benze of colored pencils. They are lovely!

The giveaway closes on Saturday, February 13th at 9pm Chicago time. On Valentine’s Day I will announce the winners here on this blog post and over at my YouTube channel. Good luck!!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I’m here to announce the two winners of the $25 gift certificates from my 10 Cards, 1 Kit & Giveaway using Simon Says Stamp’s January Card Kit video!

Colored Pencils, Copic Coloring, Scrappy Tails Crafts

Popping Poppies Cards using Colored Pencil, Copics & Kraft Cardstock | Scrappy Tails Crafts

Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I’m so excited about Scrappy Tails Crafts latest release, and I get to show you a few of the new products. These stamps and dies include products for Valentine’s Day, spring, and Easter, but you could really use them all year round.

For today’s cards I used a gorgeous stamp set called Popping Poppies. I love floral stamp sets! This one has beautifully drawn poppies with cute sentiments such as “Popping by to Say Hi,” “You Make Life Pop,” and You Popped in My Mind.”

Card #1: Poppy Heart Landscape Card

The large heart with poppies image fills up your A2 size card. I colored it in with Prismacolor pencils on kraft cardstock.

Prismacolor Pencils:

Flowers: Poppy Red, Raspberry, White, Dark Umber, Canary Yellow

Leaves: Chartreuse, Spring Green, Apple Green, Dark Green

Outside the Heart: French Grey 90%, French Grey 50%

Inside the Heart: Poppy Red, Pink

Card #2: Poppies on a Trellis Top-Folding Card

I stamped out the single poppies onto white cardstock and colored them in with Copic markers. I used one of the dies from the Basket Pop Up Card Dies to cut out the trellis for my poppies to climb up. I also used the Slimline Everyday Border Dies to cut out grass to put under them.

Copics:

Flowers – YR21, YR68, YR07, E23

Leaves – YG63, G46, YG61

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

Colored Pencils, Fall Themed Cards, Not 2 Shabby

More Autumn Cards using Colored Pencils | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project

Hello and welcome! I’m stamping up some cute designs exclusive to the Not 2 Shabby Shop today. For my first card I used the set called “You, Me and Pumpkin Spice.” I love the little squirrels in this set as well as all the fabulous fall images. On my second card I used “Fall Gnomes.” It includes two of the cutes gnome images I’ve ever seen.

Card #1: Stamped Pattern Paper Card

One of my all time favorite techniques is stamping out my own pattern paper. Not only is it fun, but it allows you to use all of the images from your set on one card. I stamped my images onto a piece of kraft cardstock using Fallen Leaves brown ink. This is a pigment ink, so you almost always get a crisp stamping without the use of the stamp positioner. I wanted my squirrels to really stand out from the kraft cardstock, so I stamped them onto a piece of white cardstock and colored them in with colored pencils.

Card #2: Row Stamping Slimline Card

For my slimline card I pulled out my stamp positioner to stamp out the gnome several times. I used the same Fallen Leaves brown ink, and I stamped it onto a piece of light brown cardstock. I cut out this panel using a slimline die set from Trinity Stamps. I stamped the gnome in the middle first, so I could make sure he was centered, and then I shifted my paper along the bottom edge of my stamp positioner 1 1/4 inches on each side and stamped 4 more gnomes.

For the gnome that I colored in, I stamped him onto a piece of white cardstock. I used more colored pencils and fussy cut him out. I popped him up with foam adhesive as well as the sentiment. This slimline card measures 8 1/2 by 3 1/2.

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

Pumpkin Kisses & Harvest Wishes Blog & Instagram Hop | Fall Slimline Cards

Welcome to the “Sending you Pumpkin Kisses & Harvest Wishes from Not 2 Shabby & Kat Scrappiness!” We are thrilled you could join us on this blog & Instagram hop celebration! Kat Scrappiness has some of the best stamps, dies, and embellishments around and Not 2 Shabby is very excited to carry their products! Come hop with us and see what all the excitement is about!

The blog & Instagram hops and giveaways will start Thursday, September 10 and will end on Tuesday, September 15th. We will have 4 x $15 winners!! 2x pulled from blog comments and 2x pulled from the Instagram comments.

For this hop, we are showcasing the Double Stitched Nesting, Wonky Stitched Nesting and Tri-Frame slimline dies from Kat Scrappiness and the “Happy Fall” Stamp set from Not 2 Shabby.

I have a 10% off coupon code for you from the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Card #1: Stacked Pumpkins Slimline Card

This stack of pumpkins was so much fun to create on a slimline card–I wouldn’t have been able to do this tall of a stack on a regual A2 cards. I love all the images from this Happy Fall set! I stamped out my crow first and then stamped down from there, masking as I went along. I stamped on a piece of speckled off-white cardstock from MFT called Primitive Cream Heavyweight Cardstock. I love using colored cardstock for my colored pencil work. It gives you a nice base color to start with.

I then colored in my images with colored pencils. I colored the pumpkins different colors to add variation to my scene. I then masked my images and colored in the background behind them with Distress Oxide Inks. This is a really fast way to add color to your work.

Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils:

Dark Cadmium Yellow 108, Cadmium Orange 111, Dark Cadmium Orange 115, Light Cadmium Red 117, Deep Red 223, Light Red-Violet 135, Purple Violet 136, Delft Blue 141, Warm Grey VI 275, Black 199, Pink Madder Lake 129, Raw Umber 180, Terracotta 186, Burnt Umber 280, Permanent Green 266, Hooker’s Green 159

Distress Oxide Inks: Black Soot, Wilted Violet, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Shabby Shutters.

Card #2: Autumn Scenes Slimline Card

I used the largest wonky stitch slimline die this time and cut out a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. This is the paper to use if you are using your Arteza or Zig Real Brush Pens. It allows the pens to blend beautifully. I stamped and masked my scenes using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and poured clear embossing powder over them. Once I melted the embossing powder, the lines were shiny and smooth. The embossed lines contain the watercolors, so you can paint and don’t have to worry about your images bleeding into each other.

I cut out another piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock using the smallest wonky stitch die and used that for my sentiment strip and to separate my two scenes. I stamped two more sentiments–one above each scene. The sentiments fit perfectly in the top corners of these scenes.

Arteza Real Brush Pens:

Pumpkin – Sunset Yellow, Orange, Autumn Red; Stem – Pale Green, Basil Green; Backbird – Wisteria Purple, Amethyst Purple, Eggplant Purple, Noir; Beak – Lemon Yellow, Peach; Leaf – Basil Green, Pale Green. Lemon Yellow, Orange, Cadmium Orange. Cheeks – Rouge Pink; Scarecrow – Face & Hands – Cantaloupe; Hat – Green Tea; Patches, Lemon Yellow, Orange; Straw Hair – Lemon Yellow, Orange; Jeans – Night Sky Blue

Under the Sea Inspiration Hop Day 2 | Colored Pencil Mermaid Card

109349711_10218011065969574_9109957051633848039_o

Welcome back for day 2 of the Under the Sea inspiration hop! Today I created a mermaid card using a beautiful block stamp that I picked up at my local craft store. I stamped her out onto a piece of Gina K Designs Artist’s Choice Cardstock which is great for colored pencils. I pulled out some Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils to color in my mermaid. I love coloring mermaids, and for her tail I followed the inspiration on the block stamp and colored it in with blues and purples.

I then fussy cut her out, added some foam tape behind her and place her on a velum heart.

The sentiment comes from the LDRS stamp set called Mermaid Treasure. I stamped this using Versafine Onyx Black ink and then I pour on some Gina K Designs Fine Detail Clear Embossing powder. When you melt the powder, it gives a nice shine to the sentiment.

The stencil I used is called Perfect Pool Water from MFT. I used 3 different colors of Distress ink onto this panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock. I used Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio. The white lines left behind seemed to stark white, so I shifted the stencil and added more color.

I love this cute stamp set from Stamping Bella Oddball line called “Oddball with a Sweet Tooth.” The sentiment really spoke to me; it says “Sometimes to stop eating all the chocolate, one must first eat all the chocolate.” It’s a very funny and true sentiment. I know a lot of people who could relate to this sentiment. Lol! I’m going to make up many more cards using this stamp set. I have a 10% off coupon code for you to the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10. The Not 2 Shabby Shop has so many stamps and crafty goodness, and I encourage you to check it out: https://www.not2shabbyshop.com/?AffId=19

I pulled out my colored pencils for this card. I’m using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils on a piece of Stonehenge white colored pencil paper. I love using this paper for my colored pencil work. It has a nice tooth to it. To get a smoother look, you could use Gamsol and a blending stump to smooth out your work, but I like the look of the colored pencil lines.

Here is the list of colored pencils I used to color in my image:

Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils: Dress: Light Magenta 119, Middle Purple Pink 125, Light Red-Violet 135, Mauve 249;

Apron: Cold Grey II, Cold Grey III;

Skin: Light Flesh 132, Cinnamon 189, Brown Ochre 182;

Hair: Terracotta 186, Sanguine 188, Burnt Sienna 283. Light Yellow Ochre 183, Deep Red 223

I also used a set of slimline dies from Trinity Stamps to cut out the two panels for my card. I love creating slimline cards lately. Trinity Stamps make some really fun slimline dies. To create my chocolate covered striped panel I used a Trinity Stamp Slimline stencil and blended on some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.

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

Have a fun, crafty day. Thanks for visiting!

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.

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

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.

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!

Image2 (2)

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!

Here is the process video for this card. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.
