Copic Coloring, Ink Blending and Partial Die Cutting

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share my last Halloween card of the year with you all! 

In our house we usually start preparing for Halloween months in advance. It's a pretty big deal. This year we slacked off quite a bit, but it's cool. This year instead of decorating, I've had the pleasure to work with a lot of insanely ADORKABLE stamps and dies and get my craft on. It is however time to concentrate on making sure my Youngest Midget has her Halloween costume ready and to start working on other projects.

The cutie patutie I used for this card is the Hey Pumpkin Stamp Set from Simon Says Stamp. It makes me soo happy. It was a no brainer I was going to use Copic's. Since it was so easy to color I thought I would throw in a couple other techniques.


I started by stamping this guy on Neenah White Cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored him in with my choice of Copic's. You can see my link below for color choices. 

To do the Partial Die Cutting, I used a Stitched Rectangle Die by Simon Says Stamp. You can click here or I have linked below to a really fabulous video by Jennifer McGuire, where she shows you how to do Partial Die Cutting. I also used another Stitched Rectangle Die from the same set to die cut the entire Panel.


For the Night Sky, I trimmed down a piece of Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock and using a Ranger Ink Blending Tool I added Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord and Black Soot. Then I used the Falling Snow Stencil by Simon Says Stamp and Hero Arts Unicorn Ink to add some "Stars". 


To finish this guy off, I added a lil bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the Pumpkin, his nose and his ears. I also stamped the Sentiment from the Set on to the Panel with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink.

That's it peeps! Next up will either be Avery Elle Cupcakes that I'm strongly considering doing some foiling on or some Altenew Garden Grow. Hmmm...decisions, decisions. Also Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit, is off the hook! Be sure to check it out!

In the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed my cards today! Don't forget you can follow me on Instagram  and on Facebook! I would love to see you there.

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! I'm back today to share a card with lots of pretty masked flowers, that I had to Copic color.

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…
