CAS Newton's Nook Festive Flamingo's with Zig Clean Color and Copic

Hey folks!

I had a lot of fun with non traditional (ish) Christmas cards this year. I prefer the traditional red and green in my own decorating style, but when it comes to cards, it was great to think outside of the box! The cards I'm sharing with you today are case in point.

I'm a huge fan of Newton's Nook. I could stamp and color Newton all day long. I was even more excited to get my hands on the Newton's Nook Festive Flamingo's! Pink Flamingo's for Christmas? Yes please!


For the card pictured above and the one below, I stamped my images on Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Hero Arts Black Ink. I wanted them  clean quick and easy, so I colored them both in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

For this card, I used some of the smaller Images in the Festive Flamingo's Stamp Set and stamped them on a piece of Simon Says Stamp Green Apple Cardstock with the matching Green Apple Ink.


I die cut this Panel with the Stitched Rectangle Die from the Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes. I also die cut the Panel on the first Card with the Simon Says Stamp A2 Card Curved Edge Die as well as a strip of Simon Says Stamp Doll Pink Cardstock.


I wanted to mix it up a bit, so for this Card, I colored these guys with Copic's. You can see the thumbnail links below for my color choices. I used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circle Die to die cut them out of the Panel.

On a strip of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Cardstock I used the Lattice Grid Background Stamp and the matching Audrey Blue Ink and added that to the edge of my Neenah White Cardstock Card Base.


To finish off the Cards, I added some Clear Wink of Stella, a couple of Little Things From Lucy's Cards Muted Metallics Sequin Shaker Mix and some DMC Silver Embroidery Thread.

That's it! Easy peasy.

Up next, I will have a set of cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Poinsettia Die and the Big Joy Dies. I know that it's too late to get these for Christmas Cards this year peeps, but I'm telling ya they would be great additions to your stash!!


Don't forget about the Simon Says Stamp You Have My Heart Release! Now the time to start thinking about Valentine's Day folks! In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed my cards today!

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…
