Inktense and Simon Says Stamp Succulents

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a really quick card.

This was super duper easy to put together and I just love the simplicity of it. Honestly, the hardest part was finding where I stashed my Intense Pencils!

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I will have links for you at the end of the post!


A couple of months ago, The Mom Cave flooded. It was a mess! So, with little to do because all of my stuff was packed up, I amused myself with a lil shopping. Retail therapy is always a good thing right? Well, one of the things I bought was a set of Derwent Inktense Pencils. I "put" them away  and then in the hoorah of getting my room finished and put back together, I totally forgot about them. Shame on me! Yesterday I was going through a some of my 12x12 cardstock containers and what do I find? The pencils. Seems like a perfectly reasonable place to store pencils to me.

Anyway the lost was found and I was super excited to give them a go and I thought the Cups and Succulents Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp was a great start! So I lined them up on a piece of Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock in my MISTI Stamping Tool, stamped them with Hero Arts Black Ink and just simply colored them in. I used a Zig Medium Watercolor Brush  (my fave) to add just a little bit of water so the color would blend out and called it good. As always, I added some Clear Wink of Stella for a tiny amount of shimmer.

Before I mounted the panel on a Neenah White Cardstock base, I tied some American Crafts Black Hemp Twine around it and tied it in a bow. I added a rhinestone, but decided no to add any other embellishments.

That's it! Easy peasy. I think maybe I should go through my craft room more often. I have to wonder if I have anything else stowed away in there I've forgotten about. Kind of like going on a treasure hunt!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Do something other than flowers, it's abracadabra I have myself a card panel with lots of pretty masked flowers that must be colored in with Copic's. Oy. So, stop me if you've heard this one! I'm back today to share a card with lots of pretty masked flowers, that I had to Copic color.
