I stamped the large image in the stamp set onto Canson watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then painted the image using Prima watercolors. After painting I added in some details using colored pencils.

I trimmed the painted image down using my Tonic Trimmer. I then cut a frame out of black cardstock using my Hero Arts nested rectangles die set. I glued the frame on the painted panel.

Next I took a piece of black cardstock and taped the Diagonal Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp over it. I blended over the stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. This creates a nice, subtle background for my card. I adhered the panel to an A2 size card base.

I took the painted panel and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card and instead stamped one inside.

I stamped the Outline Butterflies background on some Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I adhered the background panel to an A2 size card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Love You Mama stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on some vellum and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I fussy cut that sentiment out and popped it up on the card with foam tape.

I stamped a smaller sentiment on white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I cut it into a small strip and popped it up above the larger sentiment. Next I used a white Prismacolor pencil to color in the butterflies in the background.

To finish up the card I added some clear sequins. I also used Wink of Stella on the smaller sentiment as well as on some of the butterflies in the background.

No-line Coloring Get Well Card | Colorado Craft Company

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a no-line coloring card featuring a stamp set from Colorado Craft Company!

1.jpg

I stamped the large image from the Get Well stamp set onto Neenah Desery Storm cardstock using my Misti tool. I stamped with Versamark ink so that the image would just be a very light watermark. This is what makes the no-line coloring technique possible.

I coloring in the image using my Prismacolor pencils. Once the coloring was done I die cut the image out with a circle die. I then glued that circle to a slightly larger circle die cut from white cardstock.

2.jpg

I cut a piece of Slate cardstock to 4.25 x 4.25 and then adhered it to a card base that was also cut to be 4.25 x 4.25. I glued my circle piece to the middle of the card. For my sentiment I embossed one of the stamps from the set onto Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with Alabaster white embossing powder. I popped the sentiment up onto the card with foam tape.

To finish up the card I added some really simple embellishments. I used two white hearts from Doodlebug and a sequin from the Girl’s Best Friend sequin set from Simon Says Stamp.

Sneak Peek January 2019 Release | Pink & Main

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing some sneak peeks from Pink & Main’s upcoming January release. This The entire release is so amazing but for today I am sneak peeking four new products on a card.

17.jpg

I stamped the cute image with the bears from the Perfect Couple stamp set with black ink and colored it in with colored pencils. All of the bears in this stamp set are so adorable! I used the coordinating die set in order to cut the bears out.

18.jpg

The next product I am featuring is the Watercolor Foil paper pad. I grabbed a piece of this gorgeous 6 x 6 paper and cut it down for the background on the card.

20.jpg

I wrapped a piece of vellum around one side of the panel to be a base for where I place my bears. I didn't want to cover up the pretty paper, but I also knew my bears needed a base so they didn't get lost. Vellum is a great solution here because it allows you to still see the paper! I popped up the bear onto the vellum with foam tape.

My sentiment comes from the Perfect Couple stamp set. I popped that up on the card and then added some of the new Rose Gold Glossy Dots. As a lover of all things Rose Gold I was ecstatic when I saw these in the release!
