Not 2 Shabby Shop Spring/Summer Release & Video Hop 2020

Welcome! I hope you are having a fun weekend! Today is the spring/summer stamp release for the Not 2 Shabby Shop!! I have some darling stamp sets to show you! We also have a video hop and a giveaway to celebrate! The links to the videos and the products are listed below!

The hop will run from March 7th – March 14th leaving you plenty of time to watch and comment on each video. One winner will be drawn randomly from the comments on March 15th. The prize is a $25 gift certificate to Not 2 Shabby!

For the cards I created I used the “Spring is in the Air” stamp set. I adore the images in this set! I will have more videos to come using the 3 other new release stamp sets.


Card #1: Stamped Pattern Paper Card

I love using every single image in the stamp sets I create with, and all of the images in this set are so fabulous. I stamped all of the smaller images onto a piece of green card stock using green ink. This creates a lovely tone-on-tone look–subtle but beautiful.  I didn’t want my background to compete for attention with the images I colored in using colored pencils. I wanted the bunny, rainbow and sentiment to really pop on the front of my card. (Don’t you just love that cute little bunny!)


Card #2: Springtime Friends Card

For card #2 I stamped the images onto a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock because I wanted to color them in with my Arteza Real Brush Pens. They blend beautifully on this paper. After my painting was done, I came in with some Gelly Roll Pens and added hatching lines to create more depth in the shadows.


Card #3: Rainy Hello Card

I only created a sliver of a scene behind my little duck image on my third card because I wanted him to be the center of attention. I stamped my image first and covered him up with a mask. I also masked off my card panel with some Post-it Note Tape. Next, I blended on some Distress Oxide Inks, starting at the top, called Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint and Lucky Clover. After that I pulled up all the masks and colored in the duck with Copic Markers. I used the markers to draw in a little bit of grass under the duck so he didn’t appear to be floating on the card. Lastly, I stamped out the sentiment and drew in some rain drops with a white Gelly Roll Pen.


Here is my process video! You can watch it here or over on my YouTube Channel in HD. Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check out the other videos along the hop for more fabulous inspiration!
