Copic Coloring, Not 2 Shabby, Valentine's Day Cards

Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project | Snowy Bears Stamp & Copics

Hello everyone! Welcome! The stamp set I chose for my design team project this month is from C.C. Designs, and it’s called, “Snowy Bears.” Playing with this stamp set made this arctic Chicagoland January a little more “bearable.” Sorry for the pun. This is the first stamp set I’ve ever had from C.C. Designs, and I adore it. Just look at the droll expression on the skating polar bear’s face in the picture below.

I stamped him onto a piece of white card stock and drew in a winter scene around him. I used Distress Oxide inks to color in the sky, and for the rest on the scene, I used Copic markers. I also used Copic markers to color in this polar bear.

Isn’t he the cutest bear ever!! For the sentiment I heat embossed it onto a piece of black card stock with white embossing powder and attached it at the bottom of my card with a bit of foam tape behind it.

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.

Image10

Copic Coloring, Valentine's Day Cards

Not 2 Shabby Design Team Projects | You’re Just My Type | Lawn Fawn Stamps & Dies

Happy New Year to you all! I’m starting the new year off with a couple of Valentine’s Day cards for my design team projects for the Not 2 Shabby Shop! I was selected to be on their design team with 14 other fabulous designers. The cards I’m creating were extra fun to put together! I’m using stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn’s latest Valentine’s Day release called, You’re Just My Type & Love Poems. I adore the old-fashioned typewriters and the little mice! They come with a lot of fun sentiments to stamp onto the typewriter paper. Check out my process video and product links below! I also get to share with you a code to receive 10% off your purchase at the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10  Some exclusions apply.

Image5

Card #1: Interactive Love Note Card

I stamped out all of the images with my Mini Misti stamp positioner and then colored them with Copic markers. For one of the notes, I only stamped 3 sides of the image so I could elongate the note. I stamped the cute sentiment that says, “Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet and so are you.” On the back of the teal card stock I created a track that holds in the note and allows it to slide up and down from the typewriter smoothly. I put a stopper at the end of the note so it couldn’t be pulled out completely.

I also had fun creating more little notes that the mouse discarded on the floor until he typed out the perfect love note. I curved up the edges of these papers by gently wrapping them around my craft pick.

Below is a list of the Copic markers I used on this card:

Copic Markers: BG11, BG13, BG18, N0, N2, N4, R000, R00, R01, R02, R22

Image3

Image10

Image2

Card #2: Colorful Love Notes Card

I colored in all of my typewriters for this card with cool gray Copic markers with pops of color that match the card stocks behind them. I also used inks that matched my coloring to stamp out the sentiments. I adhered everything down flat to my card base, except the typewriters which I popped up with foam squares. I added a few silver confetti sequins to add some sparkle to the card.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

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.

10 Cards, 1 Kit |Hero Arts May Card Kit 2019

Happy summer, everyone! I can finally say that! Yay! I have a really fun collection of cards to show you all today! I adore Hero Art’s May 2019 card kit. It’s filled with darling little images of scissors, a paint brushes, yarn and knitting needles, (just to name a few of my favorites)–there’s something for almost every type of crafter. Personally, I am a crafter-of-all-trades; I love to paint and color and sew and knit and crochet–I love it all!

I must admit that even though I love these stamps and dies, it sat on my desk for a while. All of the small images kinda overwhelmed me; I’m more comfortable designing cards with larger images. However, once I got started playing with this kit, that overwhelming feeling floated away. Below you’ll find pictures of all my cards, my video tutorial, and links to the supplies I used.

10 Cards, 1 Kit | Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit 2019 | Delicate Flowers

Hello and welcome to my blog! I want to show you the fun cards I designed using Simon Says Stamp’s May card kit–it is a beauty! I love the floral stamp set included called Delicate Flowers and the Moda Scrap pattern papers–these were my favorite items in the kit. In designing these cards I was all over the map; I used a lot of my favorite techniques to create them. (Also, the lilac and tulip you see in these pictures are fresh from my garden! I’m loving the spring weather! Now, if it would just stop raining. Lol!)

I hope these designs inspire you to try out some of these super fun techniques!

Copic Coloring, Floral Cards

Splash of Color Card (2018) | Studio Katia & Copics

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I have another floral card for you today. I love creating cards with flowers, and for this card I used a creative stamp set from Studio Katia called Floral Trimmings. This set comes in two panels or two long narrow stamps that you can stamp together, as I did here, or separate to trim the edge of your card.

The stamps fit together beautifully; however, if you want the gap between them to be unnoticeable, you have to stamp them one at a time. It creates a coloring page that you can paint in using whatever medium you’d like. I colored this card with Copic markers.

Image1

This took over an hour to color in, and I didn’t color it all at once. I’m never able to sit at my craft table very long before one of my kids needs help with something. Lol! I didn’t mull over my color selection; I mostly just grabbed colors out of my container and hoped for the best. However, you can’t go too wrong with florals.

Image2

I had a hard time deciding what to do with my card panel once I finished my coloring. I went through my box of scrap paper to see what colors of card stock I wanted to use with it. I finally decided on a piece of grey card stock for my sentiment and card base. I didn’t want my card base or sentiment banner to compete will all the color on my card.

I cut out the panel with a faux-stitched frame die, popped up the frame with foam tape, and then adhered my colored panel flat onto the card base with some tape runner.

A helpful little trick to adhere your frame evenly onto your card base, is to only half peel off the release paper, position it on your card base, and then pull off the release paper. It’ll make more sense when you watch my video. I learned that great tip from Therese from Lost In Paper. Thanks, Therese!

I also glued on some rainbow confetti! Just couldn’t help myself–this mix from Studio Katia is gorgeous. I do like the confetti better than the sequins–no holes.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Daisy Delight Birthday Cards (2018) |Gem Watercolors & Copic Markers

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I recently visited the Gina K store again in Wisconsin for a class on Brush Lettering. It was a fabulous class, and I learned a lot–more to come on that later. On the way out of her store it’s impossible not to stop and look at all the pretty things in her store. I came across this stamp set called Daisy Delight, and I couldn’t resist buying it. I love large flower stamps. They are so much fun to color in!!

I heat embossed this image with white embossing powder onto a piece of black card stock. I wanted to pull out my Kuretake Gem watercolors and play with them again. They look so dazzling on the black card stock. My pictures of this card hardly do it justice. I painted them in rainbow order, adding a few petals of pink. The trick with painting on black card stock is not to use too much water. Even then my panel buckled a little, but it flattened out as it dried.

For my second card panel I stamped the image onto a piece of kraft card stock. I’ve never used Copic markers on kraft before, but I found I really liked the effect! It’s more muted but still stunning. Below I scribbled the Copic markers I used for this project onto a piece of kraft as well as a piece of white card stock so you could see the difference.

Image1

I painted about two petals at a time to keep the paper wet–Copics blend better in the fibers of the paper this way.  I went lightest to darkest with my colors and then darkest to lightest again to get a good blend.

Image2

I did some partial die cutting on my two panels. I used a faux stitch die and cut out some of the panel, and then I used my scissors to cut around some of the petals.

Image3

I also used some fun foam behind these panels to add dimension. I added a happy birthday sentiment on these panels, a few embellishments, and these cards were done! I hope you give these techniques a try! They are definitely fun to do!
