Heffy Doodle You’re Weird | Love You to the Moon and Back | Copic coloring

Welcome back to my blog! Today I want to share with you an adorable “LOVE YOU TO THE MOON and BACK” alien card featuring
newly released images by Heffy Doodle called You’re Weird. I’ll be honest, aliens are not the typical images I choose, but these
were so stinkin’ adorable, I could not pass them up.

Heffy Doodle You’re Weird stamp combined with Sunny Studios’ Cityscape Border Die Cut and a nighttime ink blended background featuring Distress ink, to create a Love You To The Moon and Back handmade card.

To begin this card, I stamped out all of the images from the stamp set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock
using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used Copic markers to color in all of the images and ScanNCut to cut them out.

Copic Markers Combination

Aliens: YG07, YG05, YG03, YG01, YG00, R22
V09, V06, V05, V04
B18, B16, B14, B12
Spaceship: C9, C7, C5, C3, C1, Y17, Y15, Y11
Sidewalk: C5, C3, C1, C0
Moon: BG000, C1, C0, Blender

I created the background by ink blending Distress inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot for a nighttime sky, leaving a moon outline covered with masking tape while ink blending.
Once I removed the masking paper, I added some shading with Copic markers to create some depth and shadows on the moon.
Next, using the Cityscape Border Die from Sunny Studios, I die cut several pieces with black cardstock and one white cardstock.
I kept all of the windows die cuts in so that my nighttime building had reflective windows.

Heffy Doodle You’re Weird stamp combined with Sunny Studios’ Cityscape Border Die Cut and a nighttime ink blended background featuring Distress ink, to create a Love You To The Moon and Back handmade card.

At this point, all of the elements of this card were ready and I began adhering them to an A2 sized card base to create the “Love You To The Moon and Back” mini-scene card.

I have a process video over on my YouTube Channel, linked below.

Scrapping For Less June 2019 Card Kit | Under the Sea Babies | 5 Cards from 1 Kit

In today’s video and blog post I’m sharing the five cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: June Flavor of the Month Card Kit.
June’s theme is all about under the sea babies!

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For the first card, I colored all of the images from the Avery Elle stamp set with Copic markers and cut them out using my ScanN Cut.
I cut the patterned paper following the sketch format only changing the measurements to complete this card.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

For the second card, I followed sketch three to arrange all of the elements onto an A2 top folding card base. I limited the number of
patterns in this card by omitting the center panel and adding a piece of light blue vellum. I love using this trick to help tone
down some of the business on the background and often will use a piece of vellum instead of adding another patterned paper element.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 4

For this card, I combined two panels of patterned paper and separated the panels with a piece of black cardstock, which I used to
stamp the sentiment on. I did omit the oval element in the sketch for this card but I felt that it worked for this card.

Scrapping For Less June 2019 Flavor of the Month Card Kit Under the Sea Babies. Collection three: Sea Otters stamp by Hero Arts combined with Sea Creatures patterned paper by Scrapping For Less handmade card.

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 2

I wanted to incorporate the stencil in this card and add a little glitzy shimmer by adding glitter paste by Bo Bunny in Turquoise.
I love to combine teal and purple colors together so naturally, I added a purple polka-dot patterned paper and my focal
point images to complete this card.

Card 5 – Bonus Card

I wanted to create a card with these adorable sea horses and I thought I would make a shaker card. Now, I still struggle to make
those and made a couple of mistakes but in the end, I love the end result of this card.

Hero Arts Color Layering Stamps | Creating Backgrounds | 5 Card Examples

 

Hi everyone,

In today’s video and blog post, I’m sharing five cards featuring Hero Arts’ Color Layering Stamps. For these cards, I’m sharing several ways to incorporate subtle background techniques so that the stamped image remains the star of the card.

For the first card, I am using Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Butterfly stamp, set onto a lightly inked background.

Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Butterfly Stamp combined with ink blended background handmade card.

For the Monarch Butterfly, I am using Hero Arts Bold ink in Summer Sky for the lightest shade, Indigo for the mid-shade and finally black dye ink for the outline and the darkest shade.

Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish Stamp combined with a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background stamp handmade card.

For the second card, I decided to create a stamped background by using a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background stamp with Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink. This background reminds me of sea bubbles and is paired perfectly with the Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish.

Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish Stamp combined with a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background stamp handmade card.

For the “Gold Fish” I used Altenew Crip Inks in Frosty Pink for the lightest shade, Coral Berry for the mid-shade and Grapevine for those small details in the darkest shade.

Hero Arts Color Layering Betta combined with a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background Stamp handmade card.

For this card, I followed the same card design as the previous card, changing only the cardstock color for the background panel. This time I chose a teal cardstock and did some tone on tone stamping with the Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink.

Hero Arts Color Layering Betta combined with a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background Stamp handmade card.

To complete this card, I am using the Hero Arts Color Layering Betta Fish with Lawn Fawn dye inks in Narwhal for the outline, Wild Rose for the most solid stamp, and Lobster ink for all of the details.

Hero Arts Color Layering Rose Stamp combined with a Sunny Studio Dapper Diamonds Embossing Folder handmade card.

This was the most involved card out of all of the cards I made because I stamped out several colors of the Color Layering Rose by Hero Arts.

Yellow Rose: Altenew Crip inks in Buttercream (light), Warm Sunshine (medium) and Caramel Toffee (dark)
Pink Rose: Frosty Pink (light), Coral Berry (medium) and Ruby Red (dark)
Teal Rose: Lawn Fawn inks in Minty Fresh (light), Merman (medium) and Peacock (dark)
Purple Rose: Lawn Fawn inks in Fresh Lavender (light), Grape Soda (medium) and Juice Box (dark)

And for the last and final card for today, I am creating a little sea scene using a Hero Arts Reef Border and Fancy Frame Die.

Hero Arts Color Layering Sea Turtle combined with a Hero Arts Reef Border and Fancy Frame Die handmade card.

After I die cut the Reef Border from Neenah 110 lb., I added several layers of cardstock to pop up the die cut and adhered it to an inked background.

To complete the ocean scene, I added the Color Layering Sea Turtle stamped in Lime Green, Green Hills and Forever Green Hero Arts Ink.

Scrapping For Less May 2019 Card Kit | Myths and Legends | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

I’m so excited to be a guest designer for this month’s kit for Scrapping For Less. Today, I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Flavor of the Month May Card Kit. This month’s kit is all about Myths and Legends.

I’ve been a long-time fan of the Scrapping For Less Card Kits because the value of their kits far supersedes their price and you always get enough of a variety within each collection but still within the theme.

The next person on the blog hop is listed at the end of the post.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 1

For the first card, I colored the adorable Nessie from Kindred Stamps with Copic markers and added the image to the patterned paper with waves. The only thing left to do to complete this card was to add the sentiment and a few sequences from the collection.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch 3

I simply adore this image of the Pegasus by Sunny Studio Stamps. I used the patterned paper from this collection and followed sketch three to create the background. After Copic coloring the image, I added it to a stenciled sky background to complete this card.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch 2

The feel of this collection reminded me of garden fairies and I colored the images of the two fairies to reflect the softness of the patterned paper.  Next, I chose several pieces of patterned paper from this collection and added a little bit of the Sour Apple cardstock for contrast.

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch 4

And finally, for the last card which happens to be my favorite from the kit, I colored the adorable gnomes with Copic markers to reflect the bold patterned paper. I added a piece of vellum to the background to soften the brightness so that my little gnomes are still at the center of the card.

Gnome by Stamping Bella Copic colored and combined with Gnomie Home paper by Scrapping For Less.

Scrapping For Less April 2019 Card Kit | Spring Critters | 4 Cards from 1 kit

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch 4

For my first card, I created a mini scene using Just Bee-cause stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps. I used my Copic markers to color the images after I free-hand drew the tree branch. The patterned papers fit perfectly with the spring theme to complete this card.

Scrapping For Less: FOTM December 2018 Card Kit | Arctic Animals | 4 Cards from 1 Kit

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the cards I made using the Scrapping For Less: December 2018 Flavor of the Month Card Kit called Animals in the Arctic. This has to be my most favorite kit thus far. It features all of my most favorite animals in the Arctic and as a bonus, the color of the kit is predominantly purple in color. Which is definitely my favorite! And now onto the cards.

Each card is created with the contents of one of the collections and follows the suggested sketch provided on the Scrapping For Less website here.

Sadly, the kit is sold out for the banana split level but there seems to be an option for the double dip kit or the Ala Carte products.

Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection one: Bear Hugs by Sunny Studios and Winter Skies by Scrapping For Less patterned paper.

Scrapping For Less December 2018 FOTM Card Animals in the Arctic featuring from collection four: Arctic Animals by LDRS and Arctic Snowfall by LDRS patterned paper.

Card 1 – Collection One – Sketch # 4

For my first card, I used the super adorable polar bear (happens to be my most favorite Arctic animal) and followed sketch number four. I combined the collection one stamp with the Christmas Tree stencil to create a nighttime winter inspired scene.

I colored the bear using Copic markers, white heat embossed the sentiment and added the beautiful patterned paper to complete this card.

Card 2 – Collection Two – Sketch # 2

For the second card, I followed sketch two and decided to try my hand at monochromatic coloring of the super sweet penguin by Stamping Bella.

Card 3 – Collection Three – Sketch #3

For this and the last card of the kit, I created one-layer mini scenes, which happens to be one of my most favorite techniques in creating cards. The third card features two of the most adorable Arctic animals floating on an iceberg. I used my Copic markers to  color the entire scene including the water and the sky. As a final touch I added snow with a white gel pen because it would snow in the Arctic!

Card 4 – Collection Four – Sketch #1

And finally for the last card for this kit, I stamped the sweet momma and baby fox from the Arctic Animals stamp by LDRS on Grapesicle  cardstock and used my Fabre-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencil that I got from my beautiful sister for Christmas. This is my favorite card I made from this kit!

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing the four cards I made using the Scrapping for Less Flavor of the Month July 2018 Card Kit, a bit late. With the start of school, it has been hectic with homework and after school activities around here. But I did sneak away and played in my craft room to create these four cards.
