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.

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!

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.

Girlfriends Card using Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol

2019 Scrapping for Less Art Impressions Card THUMB 04

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a fun holiday season! I’m taking a break from Holiday Card crafting to create a fabulous friendship card! The stamp set I’m using is called Girlfriends from Art Impressions, and I’m also using some chevron pattern paper from Scrapping for Less called Fairy’s Garden.

I decided to pull out my Prismacolor pencils to color in these ladies. I love AI stamps–they’re quirky and cute. They also provide you with a great example on the packaging of how to color in their images. For the most part I used their example as my inspiration, but I did change up the colors to match the cheery chevron pattern paper.

2019 Scrapping for Less Art Impressions Card THUMB 03

I colored them in pretty simply. Below you’ll see a list of the pencils I used. After I finished my coloring, I pulled out my Gamsol which is an odorless mineral spirit. I dipped a paper stump into the Gamsol and gently blended my colored pencil work. It breaks down the wax from the pencils and smooths out the coloring. It also helps to brighten the colors.

Prismacolor Pencils:

Both Ladies – Skin: Beige 977 & Beige Sienna 1080, Hair: Sienna Brown 945 & Chocolate 1082, Lips: Process Red 994, Cheeks: Magenta 930

Lady on Left – Sweater: Light Aqua 992 & Muted Turquois 1088, Pants: Blush 928 & Clay Rose 1017, Shirt: 50% Cool Grey 1063, Shoes: Goldenrod 1034

Lady on Right – Sweater & Shoes: Apple Green 912 & Dark Green 908, Pants: 50% Cool Grey 1063

2019 Scrapping for Less Art Impressions Card THUMB

To pull this card together, I used a scalloped oval die to cut out my image and added some foam tape behind it. I used a banner die to cut out the chevron pattern paper, and I adhered everything down onto a piece of green card stock. This is a top-folding, A2 sized card. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pink card stock and adhered that over my oval. I love the sentiments in this set–so funny and cute! For a touch of sparkle I added some green gems diagonally across the card.

You can check out my process video below or over on my YouTube channel in HD.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!!

Floral Card Featuring Scrapping for Less’ Fairy’s Garden Pattern Paper & Gina K’s Whimsical Wildflowers Stamp Set

blogpic1

Hello everyone! It’s Jackie from Jackie’s Craft Table, and I’m so excited to be a special guest designer this December for Scrapping for Less!! The card I created features the gorgeous stamp set from Gina K Designs called, “Whimsical Wildflowers,” and the beautiful pattern paper from Scrapping for Less called, “Fairy’s Garden.”

I absolutely love creating floral cards, and I had a ball putting this one together. I chose one of the many beautiful flowers from the stamp set and colored it in with some Prismacolor colored pencils. I used flicking motions to add some texture to my flowers, and I left a white highlight in the middle of each petal–this really helps to make them pop.

I fussy-cut my flowers and leaves, attached them to my sentiment, and popped it up with foam tape. The pattern paper is what really pulls this card together. I love flowers and stripes together–they go together like peanut butter and jelly. I used a piece of the floral paper as well as a piece of the striped paper, and that’s what really added the magic to this card! I used some pink Nuvo Drops and some strips of metallic paper over my seams, and this card was complete! There is also a process video for this card below or over on my YouTube Channe in HD.

The Scrapping for Less theme for December is Hodgepodge Potpourri which means we will be showcasing all kinds of different products and companies this month. Check out the blog to see all of these fabulous products! I hope you enjoyed my card project and were inspired to create something fabulous!

Have a wonderful day, everyone!

Arteza Everblend Art Markers Review | Card Projects using Funny Farm Set from Stampers Anonymous

Hello crafty friends! I have another art medium to review for you today! Arteza very kindly sent me their 120 set of Everblend Art Markers. These are alcohol based markers, and I love working with alcohol markers; so, I was very excited to try these out!

I created 8 cards using these markers. I also used a new stamp set from Stampers Anonymous called Funny Farm. These barnyard animals are so adorable! The markers have two sides–a fine tip or bullet and a chisel tip. I used the fine tip side to color in these images, and I used the chisel tip side to color in backgrounds behind my animals. I used the chisel tip on these markers more than I use the chisel tip on my Copic alcohol markers. The Everblend chisel tip is significantly larger than the Copic’s chisel tip. It makes coloring backgrounds–putting down a lot of color–very quick and easy.

I also really loved the fine tip. It made getting into the small bits of the images so easy! You can buy the fine tips to put in your Copic markers, and I considered doing this at one time; however, it was just too expensive.

I used these markers on white card stock and kraft card stock. I love the bright, bold look of these markers on white card stock, but the de-saturated look you get on your kraft paper is a lot of fun too!

I am slowly adding to my Copic marker collection–love my Copics. However, Copics are very expensive–I have been collecting them for over 3 years now, and I’m nowhere near having the complete set. The Arteza’s Everblend markers sets have a fabulous price point. They are not refillable: however, you can buy them open stock, and they do have replaceable tips. These markers blended beautifully!

Bottom line–I love these markers!!

I created a swatch chart for these markers. I always like to swatch out any new mediums I’ve added to my collection. Here is the link if you want a copy of this chart: Arteza Everblend Art Markers Swatch Chart in PDF format

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!

10 Cards, 1 Kit SSS Limited Edition Card Kit 2019 | Eggstra Sweet Easter

Happy Easter to you all! I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend! I’ve finally published my 10 Cards, 1 Kit video using Simon Says Stamp’s limited edition card kit. This kit was packed with pastel fun!! I loved all the Easter Bunny images and the cute sentiment stamps!

I am publishing this super late because my father in law passed away a few weeks ago. We will be missing him greatly this weekend when we get together as a family to celebrate Easter. It will be good to remember on Easter that because of Jesus, we will see him again. My father in law left a wonderful legacy of love for his family and a great example of kindness and service to others.

Thank you all for your continued support and kindness to me!!

10 Cards, 1 Kit | Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit 2019 | Lucky Rainbow

Hi crafty friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I’m excited to show you all the cards I designed with Simon Says Stamp’s March card kit. The largest of the two stamp sets in this kit is called “Amazing,” and that’s exactly what I thought of it. I love geometric shape stamps, and the circles from this set has lots of fun patterns to them.

The small stamp set is called “Wooly Lucky,” and it is St. Patrick’s Day themed. I don’t usually send out happy St. Patrick’s Day cards, but the stamp set was sure fun to play with. I love the llama image in this set.

Card #1: Diagonal Flowers Card

I really love the circle image I used on this first card. It looks like a rose to me, so I used it that way. I stamped two flowers on a piece of white cardstock and die cut the center circle with a faux stitched circle die to make it a little smaller. I popped it up with foam squares between the larger flowers to give the card some dimension. I drew in my own leaves and cut it out on a diagonal. I used a piece of Doll Pink cardstock behind it, and heat embossed my sentiment with white embossing powder.

Card #2: Rainbows & Dots

This was a fast card to put together. I stamped out all the solid circle images with the Lucky green mini ink cube around my sentiment. I also stamped out a few black circles to match the black sentiment. I added a few green pearls and stars from the Lucky Charms sequin mix–loved this mix of sequins!

Card #3: Rainbows & Unicorns

I knew I had to use some of the Doodlebug stickers to make a birthday card for my daughter. She loves rainbows and unicorns, so I turned this card into a birthday card by adding my own birthday die cut. I love the sticker from this kit–great on card fronts as well as on the insides of the cards. Decorating the insides of your cards makes them extra special in my opinion. It doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it does add a lot more fun.

Card #4: Wonky Flowers

I love the look of colored pencils on dark cardstocks! I stamped out these circles stamps with white pigment ink first, and then I colored over the images with polychromos pencils. I then stamped them again–I made sure to keep the stamps on the door of my Mini Misti. I used clear embossing ink this time and poured on some white embossing powder. I also white heat embossed my sentiment. A few white Nuvo Drops across the panel helped brighten it up a little.

Card #5: Wooly Lucky Llama Card

I had to color in this little llama with my medium-of-choice–colored pencils. I used more of the pattern paper and cardstock from this kit behind him. I love how the yellow circle die cut really makes the llama stand out as the focus of this card.

Card #6: Rainbow Llama Card

I thought i’d go all out for this card and color an Irish scene behind the llama including some purple Irish heather. I used my softest shades of Copic markers to color a rainbow behind him. I didn’t want the rainbow taking over the show.  I also colored in the llama with soft earth tone Copics. I think this card it my favorite of the lot.

Card #7: Rainbow Circle Die-Cuts

I have a very eclectic assortment of circle dies. Sometime I want to purchase an infinity set of circle dies without stitches or anything–just circles. However, I used what I had to cut out my white heat embossed circle images. I used Distress Oxides to color them in. I didn’t put them on my card in rainbow order, but all of the colors are there. I used foam squares behind my sentiment as well as behind some of the circles.

Card #8: St. Patrick’s Day Shaker Card

I used a tag die from my stash to partially die cut a window in my green leaf cardstock. I made this into a little shaker window and placed another tag over it. I love this little Irish girl sticker and placed her on the tag. No coloring went in to the creation of this card, but I love how it turned out!

Card #9: Sunflower Card

I really love the sentiments from this set. They are encouraging, substantial and just fun! The one I stamped on this card it my favorite. I used two of the circle stamps to create what I hope look like sunflowers and stamped them across this panel. I also added a few small circle stamps to add lightness to the panel. After all my stamping was done, I used a wonky stitched die to cut out the sentiment. I matted it with more orange peel cardstock and popped up the panel with foam tape.

Card #10: Purple Fireworks Card

This was another quick and fun card to put together. I wanted the circle stamps to look like fireworks and confetti this time. I used more of the blue violet cardstock from the kit as well as a piece of the purple rainbow pattern paper. I stamped out my circles on a piece of white cardstock and matted it with blue violet cardstock. I chomped the corners to soften them. To make the sentiment really pop and not get lost on this busy panel, I heat embossed it with more white embossing powder on blue violet cardstock and then cut it out with a banner die.

10 Cards, 1 Kit | SSS Limited Edition Card Kit 2019 | Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day! I love making Valentine’s, and this Limited Edition Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp called Valentines was packed with cute products that inspired me to create lots of sweet Valentines. My favorite item from this kit is the 6×8 stamp set called “The Sweetest.” The critters in this set are adorable, and I enjoyed coloring them in. Below are pictures of all my cards, as well as pictures of the insides. I love adding a little something on the inside my cards–it makes them that much more fun for the recipients.

I used a wide variety of mediums and techniques to create these cards. I love being elbow deep in paper, colored pencils, stamps and etc. When I am in the middle of creating cards with these kits, my desk becomes a lovely, chaotic mess, but that’s part of the fun! I have a link to my video below. 😉
