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 started by stamping my masks on some Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and trimmed those out. Then, using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped all of my images on Neenah White Cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. You could totally use a stamp block instead of the MISTI, but I knew I was going to make more than one card so the MISTI was a must.

I did the Blue-Green card first. I had this idea that I was going to make it more monochromatic. As in all varying shades of Blue-Green, but once I got down to coloring the lil flowers on the end I chickened out and decided to go with orange. I will have thumbnail links below if you are interested in my Copic choices for both of these cards.


For my second card, I was inspired by a shirt my daughter was wearing. Copic RV63, RV66 and RV69 are my favorite red-violets and I thought that large center flower would be groovy in that color.

For both of my cards, I used a T-Sqaure Ruler and really just played around with a couple of "faux frames. I lightly added them with pencil first and then when I decided I didn't hate it, I went over the lines with a Copic Multiliner.


On the Blue-Green card, I used a Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen to add details to the inside of the flowers. On the Red-Violet Card, I used a Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen. I really wished I had stayed with what I had done on the BG card, but what d'ya do?

On both cards, I used a Sakura Clear Glaze Pen to add a teensy weensy bit of dimension to the black dots and the inside of all the flowers. No card is complete in my world without some Clear Wink of Stella


I really felt like I had probably more than enough going on both of them so I left off any embellies. I attached them both to 4.25" x 5.5" in card bases and called it a day.

That's it! Easy peasy.

I really hope you enjoyed my cards and as always, thanks sooo much for stopping by to see 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 suer 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.

Using Dies On A One Layer Card + Altenew Majestic Blooms

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you all! I've done loads of Copic coloring lately and today's card is no different, but I wanted to try some new (to me) as well.

I think Altenew has some of the most amazing flowers on the market. Their design and versatility is ah-mazing. The Majestic Blooms Stamp set by Altenew is actually a multi-layer set, but I climb on the struggle bus every time I attempt this kind of stamping, so I decided to stick with what I'm comfy with and simply use the outline of the flower and color it in with Copic's.


Since, I'm going to color this in with Copic's and I don't want them to bleed through the inside of my card I stamped the flower and leaves on a piece of Neenah White Cardstock with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink. This …
