Hero Arts Love Bug - Copic Coloring and Ink Blending

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a set of card with you! These were a little different for me. I actually started by testing out some new (to me) inks and the cards grew from there! I really do have a way of doing things backwards...

Ok so, here's the deal peeps. These cards were really easy to make. There are several steps in them, but they are sooo simple to do.


I started by using a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool to blend My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink in Tropical Teal, Razzle Berry, Coral Crush and Blueberry on for Neenah White Cardstock Panels. Oh man, these colors....I just love them.

Then I Die Cut two circles from the My Favorite Things Die-namics Wonky Stitched Circle Die Set and four rectangles from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die Set and Die Cut more Neenah White Cardstock.


Using the Hero Art - Lia Griffith Love Bug Stamp Set, I stamped the Image on the Die Cuts with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. There are lots of lil bugs in this set, but I just can't get over the Butterfly and Bee!

I also stamped the Sentiment in the Set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat embossed it with Simon Says Stamp Clear Embossing Powder.


I colored each Die Cut Panel with Copic's (you can see the thumbnail links below for color choices).

I used the next size larger for each Die Set and cut some My Favorite Things Translucent Vellum Cardstock. I thought I would just add these to my Ink Blended Panels, but decided to dome some Partial Die Cutting Instead.


Jennifer McGuire does an amazing job showing how to do Partial Die Cutting in This Video, so I won't go in to details on how I did it here. I love this technique because it's ridiculous easy, but it looks snazzy so that's what I did to the Ink Blended Panels.

I couldn't get it to show in the pics to save my life, but I used three panels of Neenah White Cardstock and stamped them with Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment Ink and the Simon Says Stamp Leaves Background Stamp and let it dry. Then I cut each Panel in half so I would have one for each of the six Cards. Take my word for it peeps, in person, it's groovy.


For the Cards with the Bees on them, instead of trying to blend out ink, I just did the Partial Die Cutting on some My Favorite Things Black Licorice Cardstock.

I didn't add any embellies, but I did add some strips of My Favorite Things Gold Shine Cardstock, Ranger Silver Foil and a whole lotta Clear Wink of Stella to the Butterflies and Bees.


That's it! Easy peasy. Don't forget there's still time to participate in The Daily marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. 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.

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.

As usual, I start…
