New “Love Cynthia” stamps

Hello!

Today I received my first set of stamps from Love Cynthia. I have been waiting for about forever to get hold of these stamps as all of the ones I really like are always out of stock. I finally got the chance when they went back on stock last month and took the opportunity to buy some goodies.

So what better way to make of today than to use one of the set into a card 🙂

My card sketch inspiration is from Sketch N Scrap, Sketch # 81.

I first stamped the two doilies in the background in two different colors, then colored my images using promarkers and copics. I also diecut the frame from Mama Elephant dies and added some sequins and ribbon for texture.

CAS coloring and die cuts

Hello!

A clean and simple card using my new stamps from WPlus 9, Get Well Gang.

So many cute images in the set but for today I used the dog image. I colored him with copic and promarker then diecut him along with the mouse and a medicine bottle.

I also run an embossed wonky stitches though it doesn’t show much in the paper. I need to add another paper next time to emphasize the embossing.

For some color, I also added some colored dots and distress inks in the background.

I used a sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches, Challenge #190 Sketch. I flip the sketch with the curved on top rather than to the left.

Die cutting and Embossing

Hello!

Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s (CAS)E this Sketch #189.

I used a word die cut ‘Hugs’ from Simon Says Stamp and I embossed the yellow card base with this medallion design embossing folder. Its so easy and I finish the card while I’m on the phone with a friend. Multi- tasking you know 🙂

Two ink colors & sequins

Hello!

Today I have the chance to play with a stamp set  from Hero Arts stamp set that I have for so long now. I was looking at my stamp box and remember that I still haven’t used these flourish stamp ever. Sometimes all you have to do is look into your supplies and use whatever you have before buying new ones right? 🙂

I used a very minimal supplies on this card. Two ink colors, some sequins, a diecut Hello from Mama Elephant and rectangular stitched diecut and I’m done.

Copic coloring and washi

Happy Monday!

I had a quick copic coloring using this hog stamp from My Favorite Things. I saw several cards online with this stamp set and made sure that my next craft order will have this stamp too.

I used only two pink color of copic markers, the one I got is from the basic skin color set and I used the lightest flesh color with pink. I added some vellum die cut for the clouds and some coordinating sequins from Neat & Tangled for some texture.

Happy to use some washi tape on this card too.

Spritz fun

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been looking for some card challenges different from the ones I usually join in and got this one from Virginia’s View Challenge, Challenge # 23.  The challenge is to use Spray, Mist or Splatter so I looked at my supplies to use.

I found this mini mist Mr Huey’s from Studio Calico that I got from a box haul long time ago. I only  have one color  called Jubilee so I decided to make a monochromatic card instead. It would be nice to have more colors but since I seldom use mini mist and I need the supply now, why not work on what I have and see what I can get out of it?

So I sprayed the mini mist to a white cardstock, then let them dry for sometime. I haven’t played a lot using this technique but it was fun 🙂

then I selected parts of the sprayed paper to stamp my fishes from Avery Elle. I love them 🙂 Since the eyes were also colored with the mist, I stamped the eye part of the fish in a clean white cardstock and fussy cut them to put on top of the sprayed ones. A nice clean pair of eyes would be good right?

I used a sprayed watercolor paper with the same Jubilee color for my background piece. I also added a framed die cut to placed the fishes. An additional sequins would be good also, with the same color scheme of green.

The spritz color added a soft coloring to the stamped images which I love 🙂

Coloring with alcohol markers

Hello!

Today’s project uses this cute fairy stamps from The Greeting Farm. I recently received this set from my haul and need to color them quickly to make it to The Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 373. I find the colors in the photo image perfect for these fairies to use, soft yet some darker reds underneath.

I used my promarker and copic markers to color the images. These are alcohol based markers that are great to blend. I have a limited markers of this type but they serve me well in coloring small images like these stamps.

The fairies have coordinating dies but I don’t have them so I fussy cut them including the mushrooms 🙂 need to do what I need to do to make them look good when I put dimensional tape to pop them up.

I used a card sketch inspiration from (CAS)E this sketch # 188. I used some fabric ribbons in the sides and also used my new wonky rectangular diecut to the white panel.  Love how the texture stitch add interest in a plain paper.

Coloring, Embossing, Die cutting

Hello!

I had some extra time and what better way to use that than to create  a card right?

I dig some of my patterned papers and older stamp set from Mama Elephant to make this card. It’s nice to make use of older supplies just because they are and will always be great to play with.

I did some rectangular shapes die cut and embossed the mid-sentiment with white embossing powder. For my image I colored them all with promarker and die cut them also with their coordinating dies.

Simple Coloring with Inktense Pencils

Hello!

I recently purchased some new stamps online and finally had the chance to use this Trouble in a Tutu stamp set from Clearly Besotted 🙂 They’re so cute right? The  set has coordinating dies but I was not able to buy those yet but will definitely get them in my next haul.

I colored the images with Inktense pencils, using only pink and black. I used a very light stroke in coloring the areas that are supposed to be dark and let the highlights be in white. This card makes me smile really.

For my sentiment I white embossed them and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some more fun.

I used a card sketch inspiration from CAS(E) this Sketch #187.

I also used a die from Mama Elephant to emboss the borders of the card base to add details. Just enough to put some texture on a plain card base.

Masking and watercolor

Happy Sunday!

I did some more watercoloring this time using My Favorite Things stamps. I cut a rectangular piece of watercolor paper and did some stamping using the fence then masked it to stamped the wooden base. I then stamped the pot of flowers then watercolor them all.

I had a gnome that I already colored in the past and used it this time to complete my little garden scene.

I then added some flower gems from Hero Arts and a purple washi for my side banner.
