Metallic Watercolors on Black Watercolor Paper | Arteza Metallic Watercolors Review & Card Project

Happy Friday! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day! I have a fun new set of paints to show you today. Arteza released a new set of metallic watercolors! These paints show up beautifully on all types of paper, but my favorite thing to do with them is paint on black paper–it’s like magic!

They also sent me a set of their watercolor books. Inside is 110 lb cold press paper bound with natural linen–they are beautiful!

For my card project I used a piece of Stonehenge Black Watercolor Paper; however, black card stock will work too. I heat embossed my image using some gold embossing powder, and then I painted in my images–this was the fun part! These paints look gorgeous on black paper. After the paint was dry, I flicked on some of the gold paint with the water brush that came with the paints. Use the code JackiesCraftTable5 to get 10% off your purchase at Arteza. It is good through April 30th. I have all the link listed below.

The stamp set is from Pink & Main, and it’s from their card kit called Fantastic Florals. The pattern paper I used at the bottom of the card is also from the card kit, However, you can buy this pad separate at the shop.

Here is a close up look at these gorgeous paints!

I wanted to try out the watercolor book too, so I painted some very simple Easter Egg doodles that I plan on decorating with my Metallic Gelly Roll pens. The paints look beautiful on the white watercolor paper too! My inspiration for this exercise comes from a video by Creations Cee Cee.

Copic Coloring, Floral Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Coloring Skin Tones with Copic Markers | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project | The Greeting Farm: Miss Anya Buckles Stamp

Hi crafty friends! Thank you for stopping by. My focus for today’s card projects is a new stamp set from The Greeting Farm called Miss Anya Buckles. This is my design team stamp from the Not 2 Shabby Shop for the month of February, and I adore these darling images! I decided I wanted to color them in with my Copic markers. I love coloring various skin tones and hair with these alcohol markers. For each girl I’m using a different skin tone combination and hair combination. The size of these stamp images are great for practicing coloring skin tones and hair with your Copic markers or  whatever medium you choose.

If you’d like to pick up this stamp set, I’ve listed the links below, and I have a 10% off coupon code for you for the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10

Here is the link to the Not 2 Shabby Shop: https://www.not2shabbyshop.com/?AffId=19

Card #1: Friend in Me Card

I colored in this card with the following list of Copic markers:

Skin: E000, E00, E11; Hair: R43, E11, YR21; Shirt: N4, N1; Sweater: YG61, YG63; Skirt: R20, R43, R35; Boots: E31, E35, E37

For the back ground I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink over a brick stencil. I distressed this panel by flicking water onto it, and then dabbing it up with a tissue. I put the stencil back on and ink blended more of the Victorian Velvet ink to make the water distressing darker.

 

Card #2: Hey Card

Copics: Skin: E23, E25, E27; Hair: V01, V17, E49, W3; T-shirt & Socks: V01, V17; Yellow jacket: Y11, Y13, Y17; Blue skirt: B21, B23, B45; Boots: N5, N3, N2

On a panel of Bristol Smooth Card Stock I ink blended on some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Ink.

Flowers: V01, V15, V17; Leaves: YG13, YG17; Yellow buds: Y13, Y17

 

Card #3: So Grateful for You Card

Copics: Skin: E33, E11, E51; Hair: Y27, Y23, Y21, RV04; Pants: B21, B23, B45; Shirt: RV02, RV04, RV06; Boots: E57, E53

On the background I used a cute stencil from MFT, and I ink blended on some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink as well as Picked Raspberry.

All these cards were so much fun to create! I hope you enjoy watching my YouTube video below. The link will take you to my YouTube channel if you’d like to watch it there.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!!

Card Kits, Colored Pencils, Copic Coloring, Floral Cards, Hero Arts Card Kits, Valentine's Day Cards

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.

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

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

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.

IMG_8431

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.

IMG_8432

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.

IMG_8433

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.

IMG_8435

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.

IMG_8440

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!

IMG_8441

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.

IMG_8436

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.

IMG_8437

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. 🙂

IMG_8439

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.

Arteza Products Review & Floral Card 2019

Hello everyone! I have some fun products that I’m reviewing today.  Arteza contacted me and asked if I’d like to review some of their art supplies. They sent me a 48 pack of their Real Brush Pens. I have the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, which I really love, but I’ve heard some great things about Arteza’s Real Brush Pens. They also sent a two pack of their watercolor pads, a set of bone folders, and three packs of Holographic Chunky Glitter.

2019 Arteza THUMB

First I swatched all the Real Brush Pens onto a piece of the watercolor paper that they sent me. The colors are all vibrant and beautiful, and I really like the names they came up with for their colors. I had some difficulty getting the colors to move on their watercolor paper with a water brush–I wanted to achieve a gradient from each of the pens. However, I found that if I first dipped the pen into clean water and then onto the paper, I could create a nice gradient effect. Also, Bristol Smooth paper is a great paper to use with these brushes. The coating on the paper allows you to blend and move the pigments beautifully.

To color my flowers, I put down my lightest pigments first using this technique and slowly built up my colors. I left a lot of white space on my flowers for highlights. To color in my light blue background around my flowers, I scribbled the True Blue pen onto my acrylic block and diluted it with water and painted around my flowers with the water brush that came with the pens.

I really enjoyed using all of the products they sent me. On their website they say that their goal is to provide quality, affordable art supplies to put into the hands of the creators, and in my opinion, they have accomplished this goal with these products that they sent to me.

 

Poppy Birthday Card:

Real Brush Pens used: Rouge Pink A190, Red A101, Light Magenta A184, Walnut Brown A164, Green Tea A154, Crocodile A126, Olive Green A146, True Blue A168

IMG_8200

On the inside of the card I painted a strip of the same watercolor paper with the Rouge Pink pen. I again dipped the pen in clean water to lighten the pigment and then colored it along the paper until the pen’s natural pigment came out. I then adhered it to the inside of my card with liquid glue.

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!
