Watercolor Mama Elephant

Hey there!

In case ya'll haven't gotten enough of me using Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils, I've gotta another for you! I tell ya, I have Copic's, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Ranger-Tim Holtz Distress Markers and these. I honestly love, love, love them all. I feel I'm reaching for these a lot lately because they are soo easy to use. The colors? The colors are Ah-Mazing! 

I would also like to point out that the Charmed Stamp Set by Mama Elephant is like the sweetest thing EVER! They make me smile! In fact, I have at least one more card planned with this lovely set.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used I will have links for you at the end of the post!

So. I kept this one really simple. I stamped all of the images on a piece of Ranger Distress Watercolor Cardstock with Hero Arts Black Ink. I also stamp a small section of the Wreath on a small strip of Post-It Tape so I could mask off a small section to add the Branch. 


Coloring them in with the Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils was easy peasy and I love how these colors pop when you add water to them. I also added a lil bit of Clear Wink of Stella in a few places. A little bit o' bling us always a good thing, I think.

I recently purchased the Wavy Scallop Stitches Border Dies by Simon Says Stamp. They are from the Splash of Color Release. What a FUN collection! If you haven't seen it, go check it out! The Dies are groovy because they have three sizes in the set. I couldn't decide which size I liked best, so I used all three. I went over the Middle one with the Fuchsia Inktense Pencil to match the Wreath.

I mounted the two Scalloped Strips and the Panel to a Neenah White Cardstock Base with some Fun Foam and left it at that. I really couldn't bring myself to add anymore to it. Yeah?

That's it for now peeps! thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy!

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 …
