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.

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.

Colored Pencils, Not 2 Shabby, Slimline Cards

Sweet Tooth Slimline Card | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project featuring Stamping Bella & Trinity Stamps

Image6

Welcome! I hope you are all having a wonderful day. Today’s card is a chocolate themed card. 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

Image73

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.

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.

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.

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.

Image6

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

Image10

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

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

Spellbinders April Card Kit Release & Card Projects |Weekend Fun 2020

Hello everyone! It’s time for Spellbinders’ April card kit! The card kit is called Weekend Fun. It’s a very eclectic kit this time–the elements range from old-fashioned cameos to peaches, bees, and fizzy drinks. You can do so much with this card kit, and they provide you with card-bases, tape, anything you could possibly need to create many gorgeous cards. It’s an all-in-one kit–even envelopes are included!

Image11

Card #1: Beautiful Cameo Card

I chose to use the cutting dies first. I love cameos! Look how pretty this silhouette is, and the necklace cutting die just pushes it over the top–so darling! I used a piece of navy blue card stock and one of the floral pattern papers behind my silhouette–the navy paper really makes the silhouette pop! No coloring involved, just cutting dies and paper. The sentiment is from the Die Cut Shapes pack.

Image1

Card #2: Everything’s Peachy Card

I really love this bold pattern paper. The green card stock matched it perfectly, so I used two cutting dies to cut out a frame. I surrounded the peach sticker with tiny flower die cut, and I cut up an oval frame die cut to create the leaves for my two flowers. This card was super fast and fun to put together.

Image2

Card #3: Hey You Flower Bouquet Card

For this card I used a piece of coral pattern paper to cover my card base. I then added a triangle of purple pattern paper in the corner. I covered my seam with a strip of gold metallic paper. I added on two sticker, some sequins, and this card was done!

Image3

Card #4: Old-Fashioned Cameo Card

I wanted to create a cameo card with a very old-fashioned feel to it. This piece of pattern paper did the trick. I also used Spellbinders’ new Hemstitch Rectangle dies to cut out the pattern paper. I love how the pink card stock behind the pattern paper peeks through the stitching! This time for the silhouette, I used the pale pink card stock. I glued on two more die cuts behind it to add a touch of dimension. I love her gold choker necklace!

Image4

Card #5: Retro Dog Card

This dog die cut shape is my favorite of them all! Look at his cute little face! I used a very retro-looking piece of pattern paper behind him, and glued on lots of extra little die cut shapes. The sentiment is one of the chipboard sticker.

Image5

 

Card #6: Bee Happy Beehive Card

One of my favorite techniques is to stamp my images on pattern paper and color them in with colored pencils. I used the retro looking paper again for this card. It provided an excellent base color for my beehive and bees. The cutting dies from this kit include dies to cut out this bee as well as some hexagons–I love that! I was too involved in playing with these cute stamps, and I didn’t plan ahead as to where I would put my sentiment. I ended up stamping it on a piece of peach card stock and tucking it under my beehive.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Cadmium Yellow, Caput Mortuum, Orange Glaze, Light Purple Pink, Light Cobalt Turquoise, Violet

Image6

Card #7: Beehive Celebrate like You’re the Queen Card

I love the color combinations on this card. Purple and yellow are complimentary colors, but add in a blue background and you’ve got something really special! I had fun playing with the stamp set again and die cutting the bee and the hexagons. I stamped the images onto a piece of the peach card stock and colored them in with colored pencils.

Polychromos Colored Pencils: Bee Hive – Cadmium Yellow, Light Yellow Ochre, Caput Mortuum, Flowers – Orange Glaze, Light Magenta, Manganese Violet, Crimson, Mauve, Light Purple Pink, Light Cobalt Turquoise

Image7

Card #8: Hugs Card

All of the pattern paper from this kit is exquisite! I particularly love this painterly looking pattern. I adhered it to my card base leaving an 1/8 of an inch boarder around the sides. Next I glued on my hugs chipboard sticker–make sure to use glue behind these because the adhesive on the back isn’t very strong. I put two of the same butterfly die cut shapes together with a little bit of foam tape to make is dimensional.

Image8

Card #9: Queen Card

For this card I took inspiration from the example page from the kit. I like how they used strips of paper down the side of their card, so I did that on my card. The crown on top of the silhouette’s head is a die cut shape, and I there is a piece of pattern paper that complimented it perfectly. I also cut out the silhouette with gold metallic card stock and staggered it behind the white silhouette to add some shine to the piece.

Image9

Card #10: Yay Card

I added lots of my left over strips of card stock on the front of my last card base. It really is a great design to used up these left-over pieces. I glued down the yay chipboard stickers, and then for some reason, I couldn’t stop adding element to this poor card–lol! I really like how it started but not how it ended up. This is one of those–at least I had fun–cards.

Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit 2020 | Better Together

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well and staying safe and happy! I finally found the time to play with the March card kit from Simon Says Stamp. It’s called Better Together, and it’s a beauty! This kit has sold out, but you can buy all the products separately–However, I would skip the watercolor pencils included in the kit. Lol! More on that below. I created 5 cards with this kit–all floral cards and all very different.

Image6

Card #1: Split Panel Watercolor Pencil Card

There were 3 floral watercolor panels in this kit, and I used them all. For my first card I went for the beautiful poppy panel. I used the watercolor pencils from the kit, but I didn’t enjoy using them. These pencils aren’t very pigmented. If I could do this over, I’d use my Arteza Watercolor pencils. I almost threw out this panel, but I really wanted to make it work. I cut the panel in half, and then fussy cut around the flowers. I popped them up with foam tape and attached them to the card stock. This made it look fuller. I then attached the sentiment with foam tape in the center.

Image1

Card #2: Colored Pencil Dogwood Flower Card

I love this dogwood flower panel! To color it in I pulled out my Arteza colored pencils. They blended nicely on this watercolor paper! After I finished my coloring, I framed it with the striped pattern paper. I did raise it up with foam tape. To embellish it I glued on some Fortune Teller enamel dots–I love these things!!

Arteza Colored Pencils: Flower Petals: Midnight Blue, Ube Purple, Periwinkle Blue, Smoke Gray; Flower Center: Pear Green, Fern Green; Stem: Hazelnut Brown, Fern Green Mushroom Gray;

Image2

Card #3: Colored Pencil on Pattern Paper Card

I used my favorite stamp from this set on this card. This vine stamp is so beautiful and unique! I will definitely be pulling this out again. I used my regular sized Misti stamping tool to stamp this out–it wouldn’t fit in my Mini Misti. I stamped it down on one side of the pattern paper, and then all I had to do was flip the paper and stamp again–easy symmetrical stamping. I used 3 Arteza colored pencils to color in the vines, and I allowed the color of the pattern paper to show through on the tips of the petals.

Arteza Colored Pencils: Plum Purple, Pink Macaron, Moss Green

Image3

Card #4: Watercolor Pencil Daisy Card

I used the 3rd watercolor panel for card #4. I love daisies! I colored in this panel with the watercolor pencils from the kit. I fussy cut around the petals, and then I used more foam tape to pop it up off the white card stock. To frame it up a bit, I die cut a stitched scallop and glued it down with liquid adhesive.

Image4

Card #5: Pattern Paper Showcase Card

I absolutely love all the pattern paper from this kit, and I wanted to use some of my favorites on this card. The bottom layer is a piece of mint card stock, and then I layered stripes of paper over that. I stamped out my image with 3 different colors of Memento ink to create a gradient. I was going to stop here, but I felt it needed something more–and why not add a beautiful flower image? I colored in the flower with more colored pencils. This card it my favorite from the set.

Arteza Colored Pencils: Plum Purple, Pink Macaron, Moss Green
