Newton's Nook Love Grows With Watercoloring And Simon Says Stamp Stenciling

Hey folks!

The last time I ordered products, I made a point of buying things that were going to have some longevity and versatility in my stash. When I do that, I'm always a lil nervous if I've made good choices. Let's face it peeps, the bank account is not bottomless and I like to spend my dough wisely. 

I can't say that I am disappointed with any of the products I've used on this card. They are all wonderfully versatile and so exciting to use!

I made two cards using some new stuffs (some are new, new and some are new to me), I'm sharing one today, but stay tuned, because I will share the other with you all soon. 

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

I just loove a versatile stamp set. I recently ordered the Love Grows Stamp Set by Newton's Nook. This is a Mother's Day set, but I can think of so many different uses for it and that is just fine by me! 

Something else I find super useful are stencils. I admit, I don't use them often, but they are a great "go to" when you need a lil somethin in the background. Besides they're fun to use! Inks, pastes, embossing powders...the possibilities are virtually endless folks. The Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil is no exception. It's a fabulous stencil and would work on so many levels.

I masked off the Roses and Leaves with Inkadinkado Stamp Mask Paper on a piece of Ranger Watercolor Cardstock. Hero Arts Black Ink is almost always my ink of choice for watercolor. I then die cut around them with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die (another must have for any cardmaker, I promise). I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to color in the Roses and Leaves. I simply colored in the "U" with a gold gel pen.

I've had the Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz Metallic Pigment Inkpad for ages, but I never use it (shame on me, because it really is a dream to work with) and thought it would be a great ink to use with the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Stencil. I really wanted those lines to pop and this did the trick.

For some more added interest, I used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die and a piece of Neenah White Cardstock to put behind the Roses and Leaves Stitched Circle.

With all of the Gold Stripes going on, I kept the embellishments simple. I used a lil bit of DMC Gold Embroidery Thread and Ranger Glossy Accents and called it a day.

That's it! I'm pretty stinkin excited to share the other one I made with you as well. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this one. Thanks for visiting me!

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.


Altenew - Garden Treasure + Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

Happy-ish Monday! I don't know what in the halibut it is peeps, but every time I think I'm going to do something different. Break out some mediums I've haven't used in a while. 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!

Doesn't Altenew have the most fab flower stamps EVER? I never get tired of coloring their flowers. So for my card today, I chose to use the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I love it. It's a nice sized 6" x 8" set with all of those gorgeous layering options Altenew is known for.

As usual, I start…
