Good Morning and HAPPY EASTER!

It’s Susan here today sharing some fun cards – you’d think since it’s Easter that I would’ve made some Easter themed or bunny cards but I didn’t. I forgot it was Easter when I made these.

I recently received the Penny Black Birthday Balloons stamp set and I couldn’t wait to play with it. I grabbed my Copics and Prismacolor Pencils and set out to play.

The card above on the left is colored with copics. I didn’t do anything fancy – mostly because I don’t have a lot of colors and I’m still learning how to use them. I used a white paint pen to add some fun patterns to each of them.  The one on the right is colored with Prismacolor pencils. Here too I kept the coloring really simple using two shades of each color and the same white paint pen to add the highlight on each balloon. You could use a white gel pen for this as well.  I chose not to color the girl in bright colors because I wanted the balloons to be the focus.

 

This next card is a little more detailed. I used a 4 1/4 x 11″ piece of card stock and scored it on the 4 1/4″ side 2 3/4″ in from both ends.

The image on the right side of the card is stamped directly onto the card base but the balloons on the left were stamped onto scrap card stock, fussy cut out and added to the left side of the card base. The balloons furthers to the left were added with some craft foam. Here again the coloring was kept really simple. I used Pismacolor Pencils – 2 shades of each color and the white paint pen for highlight.

For my last card today I wanted to do something that would be considered a little more formal. Something for a 21st or 50th birthday or any special occasion. You could change out the sentiment to make it an Anniversary or Retirement card.

I used gold and silver Prismacolor Pencils for the balloons and then used a clear sparkle pen to add some shine to them. This time I colored the girl in using gold and black to coordinate with the balloons. A little fun strip of paper along the side and these cards are done.

I have an idea for another card with this set. I’ll get it made and share it over on the Scrap’n Stamp Facebook PageHave you seen the Random Acts of Cardness Challenge on the Facebook page yet? Be sure to check it out – there are all kinds of ideas to inspire you.

Having a HOOT with coloring mediums!

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

I had so much fun playing with MFT- Warm & Feathered Hugs Stamp set. I made two tags using different mediums- Copics and Fabercastell Pencils.

This stamp set has a 3 adorable owls to choose from and so many fun sentiments, so I couldn’t decide which to use, so I used two images from the set and colored them with different mediums onto different cardstocks.I started with the second larges die in the Tim Holtz Stacked Die set cut from Neenah 80lb Cardstock and Bazzil Kraft Cardstock.

First up, I colored the owl with the adorable scarf and stamped him onto Neenah 80lb cardstock with Versafine Black Onyx ink and heat set it to dry.

I colored him with Copics and added a Signo White Gel pen for highlights. SO MUCH FUN TO COLOR THESE LIL’ GUYS!!

I added a branch for him to be perched on from Tim Holtz- Bird Branch Big Die and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.  I adhered the branch to the tag and trimmed off the excess as it is a large die. I inked some Antique Linen Distress Ink to warm up the background a bit and stamped a sentiment from the Warm & Feathered Hugs set with Versafine Sepia Ink . I adhered the tag to black cardstock and trimmed around the tag leaving about a 1/8″ border and some gingham ribbon finished off my first tag using Alcohol Markers and white cardstock.

Next up, I stamped a different owl onto Bazzil Kraft Cardstock with Versafine Sepia Ink.

I colored the image using Fabercastell Goldfaber colored crayons- I  love the effect of coloring on Kraft cardstock with  colored pencils, such a sweet and soft look you get by layering the colors. I then added some white Signo Gel pen for highlights and added a Lawn Fawn Stiched Hillside border and edged the hill with some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to give the snowhill some definition.

I then added a different sentiment from the Stamp set and added the black cardstock border and ginham ribbon, like I did in the first tag.

There we have it, a couple of quick and easy tags using different coloring mediums and cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to see y’all in the New Year!

Pumpkin Spice And Everything Nice

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

Hi everyone! It’s Jessica here and today I’m sharing a sweet gift card envelope using Stitched Heart Envelopes by Lawn Fawn.

This set has it all figured out for you, and I simply ran the heart through my die cutting machine with kraft card stock. To create a custom pattern paper look, I stamped the mug image with brown ink.

For the main image, I stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored in with alcohol makers. To create the sentiment, I heat set gold and white embossing powder on blue Bazzill card stock.

To finish off the card I added glossy accents to the coffee, a Snow Marker effect to the whipped cream and coordinating sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
