Altenew Floral Motifs and Colored Pencils On Black Cardstock

Hey folks!

I'm back to share a surprisingly simple card with you! A little bit of masking and some coloring on a colored cardstock and you have yourself a card that makes a huge statement!

I love the idea of coloring directly onto a colored cardstock of any kind. Most people reach for Kraft, I do too, but I gotta say I am in looove with black. Even if it does look like one of those 1970's Velvet Pictures...

Any who...The Flowers and Leaves are from the Floral Motifs Stamp Set by Altenew (Say it with me folks, GORGEOUS!) I used Hero Art Unicorn White Pigment Ink on Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock.


Now, I used Irojiten Color Dictionary Colored Pencils by Tombow to color in the Images. They worked awesome!! Prismacolor Colored Pencils would also be great for this of course.

I think this would be groovy as a one layer card, but I decided to fussy cut the bottom half and mount it on a Simon Says Stamp Black Cardstock Base with Fun Foam.


I kept the embellishments to a minimum. In fact, I probably could have left them off all together. I added a few Beetle Black Sprinkles by Doodlebug Design and called it a day.

That's it peeps! Easy Peasy. I hope you enjoyed my card 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.

As usual, I start…
