Masking Clearly Besotted + Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share another card with you! It has definitely been awhile since I've posted. I have spent the last couple of weeks crazy sick, but I'm up and running and good to go again!

My favorite thing to do when making a card is building up the images on my card panel with masking. I just LOVE the finished look. Dies are great, however I think by masking and layering your images it gives a card a lil extra oomph. I gotta be honest, I would be in ab-so-lute heaven if stamp companies made dies just for the purpose of masking.


For my card today, I used the To Have And To Hold Stamp Set by Clearly Besotted. This set is gorgeous folks. It's intended for weddings, but it's fab for other occasions as well. In fact, for this card, I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Uplifting Thoughts Stamp Set on the inside.

So, I started by making mask of the images I wanted to use with Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper, then stamped all of my images with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink on Neenah White Cardstock.


I colored in my images with Copic's (see thumbnail links below), but you could totally use colored pencils or watercolor and it would be just as beautiful.

After I had everything colored in, I went over the highlights on each of the flowers with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Glitter Pen for a lil bit of bling.


Using my T Square Ruler, I lightly added lines down both sides of my images with a pencil, added the shading with my Copic's, then went over the lines with a Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze Black Pen. I was careful not to get too crazy, but I didn't want them to be perfectly straight so I didn't use the ruler for this. I also used the same pen to go over the stamens and centers of the flowers to give them a lil more texture.

I skipped the embellies because I thought the panel had enough going on and called it a day.

That's it! Easy peasy.


ALSO, Simon Says Stamp is celebrating Coloring Book Day by having a 40% off Sale on all IN-STOCK coloring books. Be sure to check that out, because that's a great deal peeps!

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me and as always, 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 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 …
