Embossing Folder Techniques and Save the Crafty You Tuber Video Hop

Hello everyone,

I am so excited to be part of the Save the Crafty YouTuber Video Hop again, which was put together by the very talented Justine Hovey to discover and celebrate crafters of cardmaking video tutorials!

For my part in this hop, I wanted to share with you a few ways to create backgrounds using embossing folders. I made several examples by applying a variety of techniques to create my projects and today’s focus is fun ways to create with embossing folders.

MFT BB Adorable Elephants stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Garlands Embossing Folder by Carabelle Studios.

To start my cards, I first cut down several pieces of Neenah 110lb. white cardstock to A2 sized panels. This is the cardstock thickness I found embossed with the best results.
For the first card, I simply took one of the panels and embossed it with Garlands Embossing Folder by Carabelle Studio. To complete this card, I added one image of MFT’s BB Adorable Elephants, a pink heart die-cut with an Outside In Stitched Heart die by Lawn Fawn and the sentiment white heat embossed onto black cardstock.

Copic Color Combination: Elephant C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, C1, R22, R20 Flower Y15, Y11, R22, R20

MFT BB Mermazing stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Mermaid Scales Embossing Folder by Echo Park.

For the second card, I focused on adding color to the embossed background by ink blending with a very light hand Distress Oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon. The embossing folder I choose for this card perfectly complemented the image of this adorable mermaid by MFT. I added a rectangle frame die cut from red cardstock and completed the card with a sentiment which I white heat embossed on a piece of black cardstock.

Copic Color Combination: Hair E50, E53, E43, E57 Skin E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 Tail BG49, BG43, BG53M BG10, BG000
Sparkling details added with White Gelly Roll Pen

Honey Bee Little Ladies stamp colored with Copic Markers and combed with Large Circles Embossing Folder by Carabelle Studios.

For the third card, I applied ink directly to the raised edges of the embossing then placed my white cardstock very carefully and ran it through my Big Shot. The end result is ink impressed into the cardstock for a debossed look.  For this card, I added an action wobbler to the Little Ladies image by Honey Bee Stamps.

Copic Color Combination: Ladybug N9, N7, N5, N3, N1, R29, R27, R24, R22

MFT Too Cute stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Mermaid Bubbles Embossing Folder by Echo Park.

For this card, I tried a variation of the above technique but this time after embossing the white panel, I very lightly applied Versamark ink on the embossed edges then applied a very sparkly gold embossing powder.  I did take a thin paintbrush and wipe off any clumps of embossing powder that was in the open spaces before heat setting it. The images I choose for this background is MFT’s Too Cute.

Boy Turtle G05, G14, YG05, YG03, YG01 Shell E44, E43, E81, E40

MFT BB Magical Dragons stamp colored with Copic Markers and combined with Textured Impressions Swirls Embossing Folder by Sizzix.

And finally, for the last card, I think my most favorite, I embossed a piece of black 110 lb. cardstock then added Perfect Pearls to the raised embossed edges. In order for the powder to stick, I applied Versamark ink this time with a brayer and found that this was easier and less messy than the technique for the previous card. To finish this card, I simply added the Dragon by MFT and stamped the sentiment onto a Copic colored piece of cardstock.

Copic Color Combination: Dragon V06, V04, V01, V000, BG34, G00, G000 Cloud B00, BG000, BG0000, Blender

In the video tutorial below, I’ll walk you through some techniques I used for creating the backgrounds and finishing the cards.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM January 2019 Card Kit | Perk Up and Start the New Year | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: January Flavor of the Month Card Kit. The January kit is called “Perk Up and Start the New Year” and is all coffee themed. There are still some kits available for purchase here.

Scrapping For Less January 2019 FOTM Card Kit Perk Up and Start the New Year featuring from collection one: Humming Along stamp by Scrapping For less and Coffee Time patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Scrapping For Less January 2019 FOTM Card Kit Perk Up and Start the New Year featuring from collection four: Brew it Anya stamp by The Greeting Farm and Coffee Collection patterned paper by Echo Park.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For my first card, I used the coffee cup and the humming bird from the collection one stamp set. I used my Copic markers to color up both of the images, leaving the cup image on the circle panel and fussy cutting the humming bird.

Color combinations: Cup B16, B14, B12, B00 and Coffee E00, E11, E13, E18

Scrapping For Less January 2019 FOTM Card Kit Perk Up and Start the New Year featuring from collection one: Humming Along stamp by Scrapping For less and Coffee Time patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

For the second card, I followed sketch three to create a paper layered designs for little Newton. This happens to be my most favorite card because I just adorable the color combination and of course the image of Newton.

Color combinations: Donut E49, E47, E44, RV34, RV11 Newton E44, E43, E42, E41

Scrapping For Less January 2019 FOTM Card Kit Perk Up and Start the New Year featuring from collection two: Newton’s Donut stamp by Newton’s Nook Designs and Love, Coffee and Donuts patterned paper by Scrapping For Less.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 4

For this card, I tried my hand at creating double shaker elements and was besieged with a number of issues along the way, hence why shaker cards are not my strong suit. In the end, the card does look adorable with the shaker elements and I love it.

Color combination: Skin: E00, E11, E13, R20 Hair E47, E44, E43, E42 Clothes BG45, BG53, E53, E50, E13, E18 Coffee E50, E53, E18, E15

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 2

And finally, for the last card I used my Copic markers to color up Anya in semi neutral tones. I wanted her to stand out against some of the business of the patterned paper behind her.

Color combinations: Skin E04, E21, E13, E11, E00, E000, R22, R20 Hair E29, E18, E15, E13, E11 Clothes RV14, RV13, EV11, N5, N3, N1, N0 Purse G99, G94, G24 Coffee E13, E11, E00, E29, E27, E25, E21

Spring + Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop | Sweet Stamp Shop Mugging | Copic Coloring

Hello everyone,

Today I’m playing along with the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop! One of the biggest blog hops and it’s all related to COFFEE!

Sweet Stamp Shop Mugging stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper sketch background handmade card.

For my second card and second entry, I used a stamp from Sweet Stamp Shop of a coffee cup and the sentiment that it absolutely 100% true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stamped my image onto white smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink and Copic colored the cup. I also decided that my cup is full and drew in the line to represent coffee.

Copic color combination

Cup RV69, RV66 and RV63
Coffee E27 and E25
Ground C3, C1 and 0

Sweet Stamp Shop Mugging stamp colored with Copic markers and patterned paper sketch background handmade card.

Once the coloring was done, it was time to work on the rest of the card. I wanted this card to have a very summery look so I picked a few colors and patterns that to me represents a summer feel.

I dug through my notebook of card sketches for inspiration and decided on this particular one for no other reason than it appealed to me at the time.  To complete the card, I added just a few enamel dots on the background for interest.

All the information on how to participate is linked above and here!

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

P.S. I edit all my projects using Pic Monkey, which allows me to crop my images, add effects, adjust exposures, sharpen colors, minor touch up and add my watermark. Click here for more information

Your Next Stamp Insanely Happy colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned paper handmade birthday card.

For this card, I began by stamping the image onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with VersaFine Onyx black ink. Using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I colored the image with the following combination:

Troll with balloon
Hair: 025 Pink and 202 Peach pink
Skin: 036 Light Blue and added water to blend out
Nose: 092 Blue Gray
Dress: 041 Light Green and 202 Peach Pink
Head Piece: 041 Light Green and 051 Lemon Yellow
Balloon: 051 Light Yellow and added water to blend out

Your Next Stamp Insanely Happy colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned paper handmade birthday card.

For this card, my inspiration came from the sketch and I used patterned paper from the Echo Park Birthday wishes collection. To finish the card, I used the sentiment from the stamp set wishing the recipient an insanely Happy Birthday!

And that completes this adorable birthday card. As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

My Favorite Things Be Mime ~ Zig Clean Color Watercolor Brush Markers ~ handmade card

Hey everyone,

I’m starting the week off with a card I made for My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge and Color Challenge.

MFT Pure Innocence Be Mime stamp colored with Zig Clean Color Real Waterbrush pens and patterned paper handmade card.

I used MFT’s cute little girl from Pure Innocence Be Mime stamp set and stamped her onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink.
I colored the image using my Zig Clean Color Real Watercolor Brush pens.

Colors I used:

Jeans: Persian Blue
Shirt: Wine red and a white gel pen
Skin: Flesh color and shaded with Blush

MFT Pure Innocence Be Mime stamp colored with Zig Clean Color Real Waterbrush pens and patterned paper handmade card.

To put this card together, I stamped a diagonal stripe on one edge using Hero Arts’ Deep Ocean hybrid ink. I cut a piece of adorable red with white stars patterned paper from Echo Park Birthday Wishes paper pad, and adhered it to an A2 top folding card base. I took a piece of grey cardstock and cut a stitched circle and the sentiment tag. The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set as the image and I stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink. For final touches to the card, I added a few blue rhinestones from my stash.

Greeting Farm Mini Remix Brewtiful ~ Spectrum Noir Markers ~ Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop

Hey everyone,

This week I’m starting off with a card to be entered into the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop, all information can be found on their website

Greeting Farm Mini Remix Brewtiful Clear Stamp colored using Spectrum Noir Markers handmade card.

For this card, I started by stamping my image from Greeting Farm’s Mini Remix Brewtiful Clear Stamp onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Using my Spectrum Noir markers, I colored the little girl using the following markers:

Skin: FS2 and FS3
Hair: CT1, EB1, TN1 and TN2
Dress and boots: CG3 and LG5, I added a little shimmer using the Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen
Cup: BG1, IG1 and IG2 and heart: PP5 and DR3

I fussy cut the image and used the Memento Black dual marker around the edges to give it a cleaner look.
To put the card together, I did some paper layering using Echo Park’s Sweet Summertime patterned paper pack. I used a lemon colored A2 sized card base, I then added a strip of green plaid paper, and I also adhered a piece of the colorful paper cut using Stitched Rounded Rectangle die from Pink and Main. I added a green scalloped circle cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities and adhered the stitched circle with my girl on top of that.
To finish the card, I used a sentiment from Unity Stamps’ Love to go set on a banner and added three enamel dots from Echo Parks Petticoat and Pinstripe collection.
I will be back tomorrow with another coffee inspired card for the Coffee Lovers Blog hop, until then!

Thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
