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.

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.

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;

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

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.

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

5 Cards | Inspiration & Techniques using In Love Arts Shop Products | March 2020

Hello and welcome! I’m collaborating again with the In Love Arts Shop, and I created 5 very different cards with some fabulous products from the shop. There is quite a wide variety of crafting products available, and to create my cards I used their cutting dies, stamps, pattern paper and enamel dots. I also have a 15% off coupon code for you if you’d like to check out the shop: S5581  Here is the link to the shop: In Love Arts

allcards

Card #1: Sweet Thank You Card

The stamp set is called Waiting Girl, and she is just adorable. I stamped her onto a piece of white card stock and cololred her in with Copic markers. I used a beautiful piece of striped pattern paper behind my main panel called Love Forever. I really love the simplicity of this card. I think this image would also go great with the sentiment, “Thinking of you.”

Copic Markers: Skin – E51, E11, E33  Hair – E21, E23, E25  Flowers – Y11, Y15  Flower Centers – E21, E23, E25  Dress – B41, B93, B45, Y11  Desk – N2, N4, N5

Card #2: Paper Pieced Heart Jar Card

The star of the show for this card is the darling cutting die called, Love You Bottle Dies. I cut it out several times with different colors of card stock and paper pieced it back together.

Image2

Card #3: Stamped Pattern Love You Card

I used the Waiting Girl stamp again for this card, but just the smaller images. I stamped them randomly across my purple panel with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I love this ink; it’s crisp and dark. Then I pulled out some colored pencils to quickly color in the images. The word die cuts come from the Love You Bottle Dies. I cut them out 5 times, and used liquid glue to adhere them together. This gave is some fun dimension on my card.

Image3

Card #4: Pocket Full of Flowers Card

I really love this little cutting die; it’s called, Flower in Pocket Dies. Getting a card like this in the mail would brighten anyone’s day! I had fun paper piecing the flowers and greenery over the blue die cut. I used another piece of pattern paper from the Love Forever pack behind my die cut.

Image4

Card #5: Colored Pencils on Pattern Paper Card

I used another of the little girl images on this card, and this time I stamped her directly on a piece of pattern paper. I love the soft butterflies on this paper, and it was my inspiration for my color palette.

Arteza Colored Pencils: Skin: Earth Red, Yellow Ochre, Peaches & Cream, Hair: Sunflower Yellow, Rust Orange, Hazelnut Brown Dress: Watermelon Pink, Peaches & Cream, Mykonos Blue, Robin Egg Blue

Not 2 Shabby Shop Spring/Summer Release & Video Hop 2020

Welcome! I hope you are having a fun weekend! Today is the spring/summer stamp release for the Not 2 Shabby Shop!! I have some darling stamp sets to show you! We also have a video hop and a giveaway to celebrate! The links to the videos and the products are listed below!

The hop will run from March 7th – March 14th leaving you plenty of time to watch and comment on each video. One winner will be drawn randomly from the comments on March 15th. The prize is a $25 gift certificate to Not 2 Shabby!

For the cards I created I used the “Spring is in the Air” stamp set. I adore the images in this set! I will have more videos to come using the 3 other new release stamp sets.

Image7

Card #1: Stamped Pattern Paper Card

I love using every single image in the stamp sets I create with, and all of the images in this set are so fabulous. I stamped all of the smaller images onto a piece of green card stock using green ink. This creates a lovely tone-on-tone look–subtle but beautiful.  I didn’t want my background to compete for attention with the images I colored in using colored pencils. I wanted the bunny, rainbow and sentiment to really pop on the front of my card. (Don’t you just love that cute little bunny!)

JackiesCard1

Card #2: Springtime Friends Card

For card #2 I stamped the images onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock because I wanted to color them in with my Arteza Real Brush Pens. They blend beautifully on this paper. After my painting was done, I came in with some Gelly Roll Pens and added hatching lines to create more depth in the shadows.

JackieCard2

Card #3: Rainy Hello Card

I only created a sliver of a scene behind my little duck image on my third card because I wanted him to be the center of attention. I stamped my image first and covered him up with a mask. I also masked off my card panel with some Post-it Note Tape. Next, I blended on some Distress Oxide Inks, starting at the top, called Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint and Lucky Clover. After that I pulled up all the masks and colored in the duck with Copic Markers. I used the markers to draw in a little bit of grass under the duck so he didn’t appear to be floating on the card. Lastly, I stamped out the sentiment and drew in some rain drops with a white Gelly Roll Pen.

Arteza 120 Expert Colored Pencils Review | Panel Splicing Technique

Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my blog. Today I’m reviewing the set of 120 Expert Colored Pencils from Arteza. They very generously sent me these colored pencils. I love trying out new art mediums, especially colored pencils. These pencils from Arteza are lovely. They are vibrant, easy to blend, and don’t break while you use them. (Free Swatch Chart Below!)

Image1

I revisited an old technique I used in a video a couple of years ago, and I love it. I call it panel splicing. I colored my image on pink card stock, and on kraft card stock. I love using colored pencils on colored card stocks! I then stamped the image again onto pink and kraft card stock, but this time I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This gives you a beautiful tone-on-tone look.

It’s key to use a stamp positioner like the Misti, so you can stamp in exactly the same place on each panel. Then when you cut them apart, they will match up perfectly. I cut two panels at the same time using my Fiskars paper trimmer. I also cut out a 3/4 inch strip on the inside of the image, so I could replace it with a piece of gold card stock. This really makes it look elegant.

Below is a list of the Arteza colored pencils I used on both the pink and the kraft card stock:

Pink Rose: Pink Macaron, Fruit Punch, Magenta, Garnet Red

Cream Rose: Cream, Marmalade Orange, Turmeric Yellow, Rust Orange

Blue Flower: Periwinkle Blue, Ube Purple, Amethyst Purple

Yellow Flowers: Sunflower Yellow, Dark Chocolate Brown

Rounded Leaves: Lime Green, Fern Gree, Jade Green

Thin Leaves: Moss Green, Olive Green

Rose Leaves: Matcha Green, Moss Green

Here is the link for my free Arteza 120 Colored Pencil Swatch Chart:

I love the sentiments that came in this Hero Arts set Called Togetherness Flower Bouquet! They were perfect for this card technique where you combine two different panels together.

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

Have a wonderful day! I hope you enjoyed your time spent at my blog!

Trinity Stamps Mini Encouragement Cards | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project February 2020

Hello everyone! I have some really top-notch products from Trinity Stamps that I’m focusing my design team project on today for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! This is my first time designing with Trinity Stamps products, but it’s certainly not going to be my last. The products that really grabbed my attention are their 3×4 stamp sentiments and the coordinating Slimline Fold & Frame Dies. Use the code N2S10 to get 10% of you purchase at the Not 2 Shabby Shop!!

Ninety percent of the time I prefer to create A2 sized cards (4 1/4 x 5 1/2); however, the cards I created using these products are mini cards (4×5), and I absolutely adore them! Trinity released 5 of these sentiment stamps which you can use to create mini cards, or regular A2 size cards. The sentiments and the fonts are just lovely!

The Slimline Fold & Frame Dies were really fun to use with these stamps because they cut out a perfect sized card base to fit these stamps–it even scores a line in the middle for easy folding. If you’re planning on picking up any of these products, be sure to use the Image7

Card #1: Chalkboard Hug Card

This stamp is my favorite of the set. I stamped out the sentiment onto a piece of black card stock using white pigment ink. I then colored in the sentiment with some polychromos colored pencils. To make the sentiment really pop off the paper, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. You really don’t have to put a lot of time and effort into these cards to make them fabulous. Trinity Stamps has done most of the work for you.

Image4

Card #2:

I couldn’t get enough of this stamp, so I created another card with it. This time I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of kraft card stock. I used the coordinating Sending Monster Hugs die to die cut the word hug with different colors of card stock. I colored in the leaves, hearts, and other part of the sentiment with polychromos pencils and then adhered the letters dies onto my card front.

Image1

Card #3: Hug Window Card

On this card I die cut the word hug with the coordinating dies and place a piece of pattern paper behind it. I used foam tape to pop up my main panel. I also heat embossed the sentiment with more white embossing powder.

Image2

Card #4: Ink Blended Love Card

I heat embossed this sentiment with some clear embossing powder onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock. This card stock is great for ink blending because it has a smooth coating on it. To make the sentiment really pop, I added more colored pencils over the hearts and the love word.

Image3

Card #5: Copic Markers Better World Card

I love the graphics on this sentiment stamp! I had fun coloring it in with Copic markers onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink card stock. I’m loving this paper so far! I added some white Gelly Roll pen to create some highlights–they really helped the card pop!

Image5

I also created some mini envelopes for these cards using my We R Memory Keeper Punch Board. They are so fun and easy to make! Mailing out little encouragement cards like these would create a whole lot of happy in this world!

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

Have a happy day, everyone!!

Chalkboard Cards Technique | SSS February Card Kit 2020 | Window Frames

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all having a fabulous day! I created a few cards with Simon Says Stamp’s February Card Kit! It’s called Window Frames, and I decided to focus on one technique–chalkboard cards! I love creating chalkboard cards because the images really look fabulous on the black card stock, and it involves colored pencils–my favorite art medium.

Image10

Card #1: Balloon Window Frame

On my first card I used my favorite frame from the stamp set! All the balloons are so darling! I planned on heat embossing the images with white embossing powder, but it’s easier to color in the image without the raised embossed lines getting in the way. So, I used Unicorn White pigment ink to stamp the image first.

I decided to color them in with all the rainbow colors. I used three colored pencils on each balloon to give them depth. I used some polychromos colored pencils, and I used many layers so the colors would really pop off of this black card stock. After my coloring was done, I then re-stamped the images with embossing ink, poured over the white embossing powder, and melted it with my heat tool. In the shaker pouches I used some Moonstone Chunky Glitter form Arteza–I wanted the glitter to have more shine than color, so it wouldn’t compete with the balloons.

Image2

Card #2: Heart Frame Card

I stamped out the heart frame using more Unicorn White pigment ink. I was having trouble coloring in the hearts because I couldn’t see where the hearts stopped and the frame began. To help this situation I drew in some lines around the rectangle. I used a #10 Gelly Roll pen and a ruler to do this. Then I colored in the hearts with red and pink polychromos pencils and a white Prismacolor pencil–the white Prismacolor pencil is better than the polychromos white pencil in my opinion. After all my coloring was done, I again embossed the image with white embossing powder.

Image3

Card #3: Flower Frame Thank You Card

I selectively stamped out the flower frame for this card. I wanted the frame to be on the edges on my A2 sized card. This is easy to do if you have a stamp positioner like the Misti. I stamped out one side, flipped over the paper, and stamped the other side. Again for this card I stamped first using white pigment ink, colored in my images, and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. My very last step was to dot my card with white Nuvo drops–this added a  little lightness to the card.

Hero Arts January Card Kit 2020 | Many Techniques & Cards

Hello and welcome to my blog! I adore the Hero Arts January card kit! It includes tons of beautiful dies, stamps, and sentiments. It’s perfect for creating Valentine’s day cards, but it can really be used to create cards for multiple occasions. The sentiments included give you a lot of options. However, the main reason I purchased this kit was for the darling mini envelope die–I absolutely love it! I created 9 cards using this kit this time. The footage for my 10th card disappeared, so it’s almost a 10 cards, 1 kit blog and video.

2020 Hero Arts Jan Kit THUMB

Card #1: Hello Friend Card

For my first card I had to use my favorite products from this kit: the envelope die and the kraft card stock. I used some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to distress the edges of the envelope.  However, I could have added more distressing; it doesn’t show up very well in the photo. I die cut lots of flowers using Neenah Solar White 110# card stock, and I colored them in very quickly using more Distress Oxide Inks and a foam blender.

Image9

Card #2: Envelope & Hearts Card

I couldn’t get enough of the envelope die, so I used it again on card #2. I used some heart dies from my stash to cut out several sizes and colors of heart, and then I distressed the edges using Distress Oxide Inks. I also used the cute text block stamp to create my little letter for the envelope. I used the Pink Sparkle embossing powder from the kit for the sentiment.

Image5

Card #3: Butterfly Silhouette Card

I love creating my own pattern paper backgrounds. First I stamped the text block with gray ink several times on a pink piece of card stock. Then I randomly stamped the small images from the stamp set over the text. I used a piece of ribbon from the kit on this card and some black card stock for my butterflies and sentiment.

Image8

Card #4: Stamped Pattern with Die Cuts Card

I turned the dies from this kit into stamps by cutting them out with fun foam. I then put a few dots of Mono Multi Medium glue. When this glue dries, it dries tacky, and you can put it on an acrylic block to stamp onto your project. You can also reuse these die cut stamps. Make sure you allow the glue to dry for an hour or two before putting them on your acrylic blocks–speeding up this process with your heat tool won’t work unfortunately–I tried. Lol!

Image4

Card #5: Watercolor Die Cuts Card

I had a blast creating the beautiful flowers for this card with some Daniels Smith Watercolors and Arches Cold Press paper. I painted the panel first, allowed them to dry, and then cut them out with all the flowers and leaves dies. I love the soft look of these flowers!

Image7

Card #6: Roses and Banners Valentine Card

For this card I used left-over watercolor die cuts from my previous card. To showcase the flowers and the butterfly I matted them with two banner die cuts. I also cut out the sentiment with the banner die from the kit.

Image2

Card #7: Stamped Pattern with Die Cuts Card–Take 2

I wanted to use the die cut stamps again. I used different colors of Distress Oxide Inks for this one, and I added a dimensional die cut and leaf next to the sentiment.

Image3

Card #8: Peek-a-Boo Flowers Card

Copic Markers: Orange Flowers – YR02, YR04, YR07; Flower Centers – YR24 & YR27; Pink Flowers – RV13, RV14, RV17; Greenery – YG61, YG63, YG97

This is one of my favorites from my set of cards. I die cut more flowers using Neenah Solar White card stock, and I colored them in with Copic Markers. To cut out my white panel I used a scalloped die and popped up the panels with foam tape. I used a piece of soft teal pattern paper behind my flowers.

Image1

Card #9: Butterfly Sympathy Card

This is a simple card, but I love how it turned out! I used one of the leaf dies to cut out several colors of green card stock. For the butterfly I used more white card stock and my Copic markers to color it in. I cut out this butterfly four times and glued them together to add a nice weight to this focal piece of my card.

Card Kits, Colored Pencils, Copic Coloring, Floral Cards, Spellbinders Card Kit

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
