Altenew Smile More + Shortcut Masking + Video

Hey folks!

I'm back to share another card with you today! However not only do I have a card to share with you but I also have a video! Yep, you heard me A VIDEO! Since this is my first, the video isn't the entire card from start to finish, but please do give it a watch a tell me what you think! I gotta be honest. I totally felt like I was a cross between a yelling teenager and speed talking squirrel.

I really can't get enough of Altenew's floral images. Most of the time I color them in with Copic's, but you could totally use any medium and they would look fabulous! If you would like to check out my video head on over to my YouTube Channel or by clicking on the image below.




I stamped a few of the flowers from the Altenew Smile More Stamp Set on a Neenah White Cardstock panel, with My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid Ink. I also used a stamp from the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set. I wanted a lil something as a filler and this was perfect.

When I masked the panel, I used Inkadinkdo Stamping Mask Paper, but due to some technical difficulties some of them had to be thrown away when I was done with them.

I decided to go with a different color palette on this card folks. I didn't save the link, but I remember seeing a picture of some flowers on Pinterest that were a lot like this. I love the idea of the blue, yellow and white and white together.


With a T-Ruler and a pencil, I lightly traced a frame around my stamped images. Then, I cut some pieces of Post - It Labeling Tape and mask off the border around my card.I said in my video that it was Scotch. It's not. What day's do?

I still needed to be able to mask off all of my images to do my ink blending. Since I lost some of my masks, I decided to place my card panel on my printer and copy the whole thing. Once it was printed I cut around the perimeter of the grouped images. This was a huge time saver and with a some Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue that I had let dry, it made the perfect mask!

I started with Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Persian Blue and using  a Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool, I lightly blended that on. Then I blended on Altenew Crisp Dye Ink in Lavender Fields. I did this a couple of times for each color because I wanted a pretty solid background.


To finish off my card, I used a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Glitter Pen and added some bit Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Glaze Pen to the center of the flowers as well as the brown flowers? leaves?

The last thing I did, was use the My Favorite Things Distressed Patterns Stamp Set. I didn't want to mask everything off again and I wanted to keep my border nice and clean.

That's it! Easy Peasy.

I really hope you enjoyed my card today and as always thanks so 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 …
