Watercolor Bouquet + Color Burst

Hello everyone! Jenny here! Today is the last day of Kathy‘s 30Day Coloring Challenge. For today, I created a card featuring The Ton Stamp’s Watercolor Bouquet stamp set and coordinating die. I had so much fun with emboss resist technique using the Color Burst Powders and I love that the pigment look so vibrant and rich!

Here’s the card!

I started the card by stamping the Watercolor Bouquet image on watercolor cardstock in Versamark ink. I stamped the bouquet repeatedly across the whole panel and heat embossed in between with white embossing powder. When all the stamping and heat embossing was done, I gave a light spritz of clear water and sprinkled Ultramarine Blue and Prussian Blue Color Burst Powder. I spritzed more water and I heat set the panel. I splattered white opaque watercolor for more interest. I let it dry completely and die cut the panel using the largest die from The Ton’s Large Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Next, I stamped one more Watercolor Bouquet image on vellum this time. I heat embossed the image in white and die cut it out using the Coordinating Die. I also stamped sentiment (borrowed from the Basic Banner Stamp set) on black cardstock, heat embossed in white, and cut it down to a small banner.

On a white A2 card base, I adhered the watercolored background panel. Then I adhered a banner (white cardstock & Glossy Fine Silver Glitter Adhesive paper) and adhered the vellum cut out on top. I also popped up the sentiment banner with foam tape and embellished the card with Glass Slippers Sequins from The Ton.

That all from me today! Hope you enjoyed today’s project and thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting!

Watercolor Wreath – stamping with Zigs!

Hello, everyone! Hope all is well!

I can’t believe today is Day29 (what??!!!) of Kathy’s 30day Coloring Challenge already! I’m bit bummed out that I’ve been so busy this month and missed a lot of days. 😦 I was determined to create something, but I didn’t have a lot of energy to create (It’s been a long week!). Sooooo I decided to do something simple, the watercolor stamping technique! Stamping with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers is one of my favorite way to create a simple and quick watercolored cards. The Ton Stamp’s Watercolor Wreath stamp set is perfect for this technique, so that’s what I went with!

Here’s the card!

I grabbed bunch of Zig markers in pastel hues and scribbled them on the stamps. I spritzed some water on them and stamped right onto the watercolor cardstock. I used my Mini Misti stamping tool to make the stamping easier. I moved the pigment around tad bit and I heat set the images with the heat tool. Then, I die cut the images using the Coordinating Dies.

Next, I went ahead and made the background panel. I scribbled light pink Zig marker and gave a good wash of water so it’d blend out softly across the panel. I heat set the panel and die cut it out using the largest die from The Ton’s Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies. I adhered the background panel on mint color A2 card base and adhered the die cut images. I popped up the wreath with foam tape. I created a sentiment banner using the images from The Ton’s Basic Banners stamp set. I stamped the banner in Ballet Slippers Dye ink and the sentiment with Amber Citrine Dye ink and die cut it out with the Coordinating Die.

I dressed up the card with some Mix Dew Drops, My Tutu sequins, and Fairy Pink Sparkling Clear Sequins and the card was complete!

Large Peony 4 – Happy Birthday, Kathy!

Hello, everyone!

Today is Kathy Racoosin’s Birthday and I’d like to share the card I made for her. I really tried my best to keep the card, well… “Kathy Style”! 🙂 I love how it turned out, but I’m not sure if I achieved “the look”. Lol!

Let me show you the card!

Kathy_Bday2017_FE1.jpg

 

I started the card by stamping the Large Peony 4 stamp from The Ton Stamps on Neenah 80lb. cardstock in Caviar Hybrid Ink. Then I colored the image with Copic Markers. The markers I used are: R56, R89, R22, R11, YG99, YG62, YG17, G21, C3, C1, C00, and the Colorless Blender. I took a risk, not going with my usual go-to color choices, keeping Kathy’s style on my mind.

Then, I went crazy with Kathy’s “Eye Lash” technique! I didn’t stop there and I also added colorful background, applying Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide ink with sponge dauber over Tim Holtz’ Bubble Layering Stencil. I stamped the sentiment in Noir Dye ink, and die cut the panel using the largest die from The Ton’s Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Next, I created the background panel (that’s match the peony) by coloring the edge of the panel with the R56 Copic Marker. This is something I learned from Kathy also. On a black top folding A2 sized card base, I adhered the background panel and the main panel. I dressed up the card with some Dew Drops and Clear Rhinestones from The Ton, and the card was complete!

Hope you enjoyed the card! I also would like to wish Kathy a Happy Birthday! She’s been a great inspiration to me. Also, she’s one of the kindest and down-to-earth crafter/artist I know!

Thank you for stopping by! Happy crafting!

Poinsettia – ME

Hello everyone! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today, I organized all my holiday stamps from last year. I’ve been card making only for few years now, so I didn’t think I had so many! I went through a difficult time last holiday season with death in my family, and I wasn’t able to make many holiday cards. Therefore, I have many holiday stamp sets that were never used or used once or twice. This Mama Elephant’s Poinsettia stamp set is one of them. I think it’s such a beautiful set and I decided to color it for Day 17 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

ME_Poinsettia_FE1

 

I started the card by stamping the Poinsettia images and the sentiment (sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Pals stamp set)on Neenah 80lb. cardstock in Caviar Hybrid ink. Then, I colored them with Copic Markers. I used R89, R29, R27, R24, YG67, YG17, YG03, YG01, YG99, YR23, and Y17. I added some gold dots and lines with Gold Gel pen to add more interest. Then, I die cut the panel using the largest layer from the Small Double Stitched Rectangle Dies.

Next, I dressed up the edges of A2 sized white cardbase with Gold Glitter Adhesive Paper and adhered s slightly smaller red cardstock on top. I adhered the main panel using the foam tape and finished the card by adding some Matte Gold sequins and Nuvo Golden Sunset Glitter Drops.

Dot. B September Release Day2

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to share my first ever shadow box card using adorable digital stamp Goblin Animal from DotBstamp etsy shop. These images are designed by Eunji, one of my favorite artists!

Here is the card!

DotBstamp_Goblin_FE

I started the card by downloading and printing the Goblin images on 21% scale on my printer on a Neenah 80lb. cardstock. Then I colored the images with various Copic markers. When the coloring was done, I traced all images with journaling pen and fussy cut them out.

 

DotBstamp_Goblin_CE1

Then I moved on to making the shadow box. I used Shadow Box and Meadow Borders die sets from Lawn Fawn. I ink blended all the die cut images with Distress Inks and stenciled clouds on the background using the cloud border stencil from MFT. Next, I adhered all the images and die cuts on the shadow box card base and dressed it up with “hello” Word die cut and butterfly die cut (also from Lawn Fawn) on the front of the card.

Hope you enjoyed my project for today! It was so much fun coloring these cute goblins and making a shadow box card with them! Head on over to https://www.etsy.com/listing/544356396/goblin-animal?ref=shop_home_active_1  if you’d like to check out these adorable goblins in DotBstamp shop!
