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!)


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

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.

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.


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.


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.


Here is the video I filmed for this card! You can watch it here or on my YouTube Channel in HD.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Magic Slider Cards | Copic Markers

Happy Friday to you all!  I have some fun cards to share today.  I’m using a die set from Lawn Fawn called Magic Color Slider.  I actually won this die set from Jennifer McGuire’s blog last December.  This was the first time I won anything, and I was so excited!!  Thank you, Jennifer!!  The set includes three different window frame dies, so I decided to create a card for each window!


This is what the set looked like before I opened it and started snipping the dies apart.


It took some time to chose the colors of cardstock I wanted to use and die cut them, but here are my cards all cut out.  It looks complicated, but once you create one, you get the hang of it, and it’s smooth sailing from there.


I used a Mini Misti to stamp the images onto Neenah White 110 pound cardstock using MFT’s Extreme Black Ink.  While the images where on the Misti door, I switched out the cardstock for a piece of acetate the same size and stamped the images again.  I used Stazon Ink to stamp on the acetate.  I used two different inks because Stazon is not Copic friendly, and I wanted to color all these images with Copics.


Once all my coloring was finished, I started to assemble my cards.  I put dot liner on the back of the colored panels, aligned them through the window, and then pressed them into place.  To align the acetate, I put down skor tape around the inside of the windows, peeled off the release paper, placed the acetate over the colored images so they aligned perfectly, and then closed the frame onto it.


Before sealing the sliders together, I made sure to put in my white slider piece, and then adhered the two sides together with more skor tape.  I pulled the white slider up and down a few times to get it slide smoothly.  These cards can be so addictive to play with!!  Lol!!  I added my sentiments and embellishments on the outside of the slider elements and then adhered them all onto card bases.  Some crafters don’t attach them onto card bases, which is fine, but I wanted to make them into mini cards and enable them to stand up.


Here is the video I created for these cards!  You can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel in HD.

Thank you for visiting!  Have a nice weekend!!
