This stamp set is perfect for little dancers. My daughter absolutely loves dancing, so I can see myself using this a lot in the future! I started by stamping the three little girls onto some Archers Cold Press watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then watercolored the images with a combonation of Prima watercolors and Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Once the paint was dry I added details to the image with Prisnacolor pencils. I also used a white gel pen to add dots to the dress on the girl in the center. I thought the yellow dress could use some sparkle, so I took a gold paint marker and added some dots to the tu-tu and the frill on the front.

I picked one of the sentiments from the set and stamped it on the painting with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then popped the panel up onto a plum colored card base with foam tape and added a few sequins.

For my card I used the Healing Hugs stamp set. I stamped the floral from the set onto a panel of Cornflower blue cardstock with Gina K’s In the Navy ink. I then colored that in with Prismacolor pencils.

Using the same floral stamp I stamped around the edge of the panel using Versamark ink. I picked out the “Get Well Soon” sentiment which fits perfectly inside the floral wreath. I stamped that with the In the Navy ink and then I stamped it again right on top with Versamark ink. This way I was able to emboss over that sentiment with a clear embossing powder.

I dragged my Versamark ink pad along the edges of the panel and then embossed that with silver embossing powder. I blended some white ink onto the center of the card and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink along the edges. Using a clean cloth I wiped away any of that ink that was on the embossed areas.

I popped up that panel onto a 6x6 card base made out of In the Navy cardstock. Next I used a white gel pen to add a small amount of highlights to the flowers. I also took that pen and added little dots in different sizes around the wreath.

To finish up the card I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the centers of all the flowers to add some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by with me! I hope you have a blast this Stamptember. Happy crafting!

Trying Out Arteza Alcohol Markers

Hey crafty peoples! Today I have a card with lots of coloring because I was trying out the Arteza Everblend markers.

1.jpg

To create my background I took out a piece of Neenah white cardstock and used the chisel nib on a light peach marker to free hand some stripes down the panel. I then took out the One Cool Pineapple stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and stamped a sentiment from that with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

3.jpg

I used Versamark ink to stamp a bunch of watermelons all over the background and then colored them in using the Everblend markers. Check out the video to see the coloring in detail!

2.jpg

I used my ATG gun to adhere the panel onto a piece of Peacock teal cardstock and then glued that whole panel onto an A2 card base.

4.jpg

To finish up the card I used a white gel pen to draw a line along the space between the watermelons and the rinds. This card was very simple, but helped me to really get a feel for these markers!

Fish Bowl Shaker Card | Pink and Main

Hello my friends! I am sharing a card today using some products from Pink and Main’s upcoming release! This release comes out on the 20th and I am sharing a look at the Fintastic stamp and die set.

6.jpg

I stamped the fish from the set with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored him in with Copic markers. I then cut him out with the coordinating die. I embossed a sentiment from the set on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with white embossing powder and cut it down to a strip.

7.jpg

I cut the fish bowl from the Fintastic die set out of Sea Glass cardstock. I cut the inner section of the bowl out of a panel of Neenah cardstock and glued a piece of acetate to the back. I then took the Sea Glass bowl and glued it to the front of the panel.

5.jpg

To create the background for the shaker I took Peacock cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and embossed a Wavy stencil design in clear embossing on it. I then added foam tape around the shaker wingow, filled it with sequins, and closed it up with the background.

8.jpg

To finish up the card I glued the fish to the front and popped up the sentiment. I also added a few raindrop embellishments and glued the shaker panel to a card base.

Teacher Thank You Spinner Card | Lawn Fawn

Hey y’all! Today I am sharing a thank you card for a teacher and this card is special because it is a spinner card!! The stamp set I used for this card is the Thanks a Bushel set from Lawn Fawn.

1.jpg

I started this card by stamping a bunch of the apples and the basket of apples on Neenah cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I then stamped faces from the set on each of the apples. I colored in the images with Copic markers and then cut them out with my Scan N Cut.

3.jpg

I die cut a circle out of Lucky Clover cardstock from Gina K and a ring out of Green Apple cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I then stamped the Plank background from Simon onto a 4.5 x 4.5 piece of Dark Chocolate cardstock from Gina K. I adhered that background to a 5 x 5 card base made from Kraft cardstock.

2.jpg

Using foam tape around the inside of the Green Apple ring of cardstock I started making my spinner on the card. I closed it up with the Lucky Clover circle. I then glued the apples all around the spinner and the basket of apples to the center.

5.jpg

For my sentiment I stamped the Thanks a Bushel stamp on Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it to a strip. I popped that sentiment up with foam tape on the card. I then added a second sentiment to the inside of the card which says “for being a great teacher.”

4.jpg

For the finishing touches on the card I added highlights to the apples with a white gel pen.
