Colored Pencils, Not 2 Shabby

No-Line Coloring with Colored Pencils | Not 2 Shabby Shop

Hello, crafty friends. It’s time for some no-line coloring. I haven’t done this for a while, but it is a really fun technique. I’m using the adorable hamster image from the set call Yum Yum from the Not 2 Shabby Shop. This stamp set was part of the May Card Box, which sold out super quick. However, you can purchase this as a digi stamp.

I stamped out the hamster using a very pale colored ink called Antique Linen Distress Oxide. If you are printing this image from the digi stamp, you will need to scale back the density so your print is very light. You could also print it off and then trace it onto your card panel with a pencil.

I used a piece of colored cardstock called Barely Peach. Colored cardstock is great for this technique because is give you a base color to begin coloring on. I used my lightest colors first and slowly built up the color and the texture on his fur.

These are the Caran d’Ache colored Pencils that I used:

Caran d’Ache Colored Pencils: Hamster – Brown Ochre 10% 832, Brown Ochre 50% 836, Burnt Ochre 077, Burnt Sienna 069, Naples Ochre 821, Apricot 041, Burnt Ochre 10% 872, Anthraquinoid Pink 571; Pink Flowers – Burnt Ochre 10% 872, Anthraquinoid Pink 571, Scarlet 070; Peach Flower – Brown Ochre 10% 832, Apricot 041; Cupcake – Spring Green 470, Grass Green 220, Burnt Sienna 069, Burnt Ochre 077, Anthraquinoid Pink 571; Grass – Green Ochre 025, Olive Brown 50% 736, Grass Green 220, Moss Green 225

I stamped and colored in some flowers from the Time to Relax stamp set. I then drew in a hill and stems around the hamster. I wanted to keep the background really simple. I love how this card turned out!

Here is my process video!

Copic Coloring, Easter/Spring Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Easter Wishes Card | Not 2 Shabby Shop

Hello, crafty friends. I have another Easter card to show you today. This one features an adorable Easter bunny, lots of Easter eggs and even some paper Easter grass. The stamp set I’m using is called Easter Wishes, and it’s from the Not 2 Shabby Shop’s March release. The yellow polka dot pattern paper is also from the new release–it’s called Dots for Spring.

I stamped out all of the images from this set onto a piece of Spectrum Noir alcohol ink paper. I started with the bunny and colored him in with Warm Gray Copic Markers. I used flicking motions so that it gave the bunny’s fur some texture. After I colored in all my images, I fussy cut them out.

I used an egg die to cut a window in a piece of dark purple cardstock. Behind this panel, I used two layers of foam tape. I wanted a really deep window for the bunny. Next I attached the paper grass–which I picked up at my local grocery store–using some dotliner. I then attached the purple panel to a piece of yellow polka dot cardstock. I love using the complimentary colors of yellow and purple.

I added a single layer of foam tape behind the bunny and attached him in the window. I glued on the basket and Easter eggs on the front of the card and decided to add some stitch lines around the window using a white gel pen. This added a little more brightness to the purple cardstock.

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

Floral Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Bouquet of Happiness Slimline Card | Not 2 Shabby Shop

I’m back with another card design for the Not 2 Shabby Shop. Today I’m using their new stamp set called Bouquet of Happiness. The stamp features some gorgeous begonias and some really cute sentiments. I decided to pull out some watercolors to color in these flowers. My color theme comes from Pantone’s two new colors for 2021: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating. Basically, the colors are gray and yellow.

I have a 10% off coupon code for the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10 There are so many fun things to check out at the shop.

I used a piece of Arches hot press watercolor paper to emboss my images on using some VersaMark Ink and gold embossing powder. Then I pulled out my little set of Daniel Smith watercolors. I painted a flat wash of yellow, then started adding layers and shadows. After my work was dry, I used some colored pencils to add even more shading.

Next, I fussy cut my images leaving a white border around them. I used Trinity Stamps’ slimline die called Hip to Be Square to cut out a piece of yellow and gray cardstock. I then layered these two die cuts and adhered them to a piece of gray cardstock.

Finally, I attached my flowers to the card front with foam adhesive. I added a sentiment and some bubble beads to add some bling.

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

10 Cards, 5 Sketches | Not 2 Shabby Shop Valentine’s Day Box

The Not 2 Shabby Shop has something really special in the shop–a Valentine’s Day Box. It’s filled with three new stamp sets, die cut shapes, stickers, bling, and two paper pads! You can make up lots of Valentine’s Day cards with this kit; however, the stamp sets and everything inside the kit can be used for all kinds of occasions. I created 10 cards with this kit, and I still have tons of left-overs.

To create these cards I used 5 different card sketches. Lately, I’ve been having fun using card sketches for inspiration. I created 2 cards with each set. I love having card sets to give away as gifts.

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.

Copic Coloring, Not 2 Shabby

Techniques for Making Your Stamps Fit Slimline Cards | Not 2 Shabby Shop Design Team Project

Hello and welcome! Today I’m sharing a few techniques for making the stamps you have in your stash that are intended for A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) sized cards fit on slimline cards. Slimline cards are all the rage lately, but a lot of our stamps were made for a smaller sized card. The stamps I’m using today fit perfectly on an A2 card but not so well on a slimline card. I’m using some fun stamps and dies from the Not 2 Shabby shop–links listed below.

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

Card #1: Split Image Slimline Card

On my first card I’m using a beautiful stamp set from Trinity Stamps called Blooming Bunch. I colored it in with Copic markers and then die cut it using the coordinating die. To make this fit on a slimline, I cut the image in half. I adhered one piece to the bottom left side of my card and the other to the top right edge using foam adhesive to give it dimension. Make sure you adhere the largest of the two sides near the bottom. This will keep your card balanced and prevent it from looking top-heavy. I heat embossed the sentiment in the middle of the card with white embossing powder. I love the way this card turned out!

Copic Markers:

Yellow Flower: Y02, Y08, Y17, Y38,E35, E37, E27; Purple Flower: V04, V05, V06;

Blue Flower: BG72, BG75

Greenery: YG61, YG63 – YG95, YG97 – YG06, YG09

Brown Leaves: E30, E31, E33

Card #2: Small Images Slimline Card

To create the second slimline card, I’m using a small stamp set from Picket Fence Studios called A World of Octobers. This is a very small but adorable set. To make this small set fit on a tall slimline card, I framed them out. I placed two images from this set in two separate windows, and I used the third window to frame my sentiment.

Here is the process video for these cards. You can watch it here of over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Have a lovely week!

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

Copic Coloring, Halloween Cards, Not 2 Shabby

Critter Costume Party Card | Not 2 Shabby Design Team Project

Hello crafty friends! Welcome! It’s still August but I’m creating my first Halloween card of the year. When I saw this new stamp set from Not 2 Shabby, I had to ink it up right away. It’s called Critter Costume Party. You get a lot of darling images and sentiments in this set.

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

This is 1 of the 4 new stamp sets in the Not 2 Shabby Shop. All of them are fall/Halloween themed. Here is a link to check them out: New Stamps Bundle

They are all fall/Halloween related stamps. With this bundle you’ll be all set for your fall time card crafting.

I stamped most of the images onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Smooth White Cardstock–great for using with your alcohol markers. All colored them in using the same yellow, purple and brown markers. This will add cohesion to your card. I fussy cut them out with a small, white border.

I used a window die to cut out a frame with black cardstock and with Bristol Smooth Cardstock. The latter paper works beautifully with ink blending. I blended Distress Inks onto the little window panels. The colors I used are Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet on 2 panels. On the other 2 panels I used Carved Pumpkin, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade. I wanted to put some bright colors behind my critters.

Next I started putting the card together. I glued down the window frame and window panel with liquid adhesive.

I used foam tape to pop up my critters in the windows. I also used some Pretty Pink Posh jewels call Boo to add some sparkle to the card.

And here is the finished card! I had a blast putting this one together! Let the fall time and Halloween time card crafting begin!!

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

Have a lovely day! Thank you for stopping by my blog!

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

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!
