Pawsome Stamps Announcement | Distress Oxide Spray Background Card | Copic Coloring

Pawsome Stamps Playful Pandas

Hi crafty friends! I’ve been keeping this a secret and I can finally share that I am joining the Pawsome Stamps design team for the upcoming term. I am super excited about this new creative journey!

As an official design team member, I want to share my first card featuring the adorable pandas from the Playful Pandas stamp set.

I stamped all of the images in the set and colored everything using my Copic Markers in the following combinations.

Copic Marker Combination

Panda (dark) N7, N5, N3, N1
Panda (light) N1, N0, R20, R30
Bamboo: E31, G28, YG25, YG11

To create the background, first I die-cut a piece of watercolor cardstock into an A2-sized panel. Next, I reached for several Distress spray inks to set my scene. I used Squeezed Lemonade towards the bottom portion of my card, Wild Honey in the middle, and Picked Raspberry at the top then set the panel aside to dry.

Using a stitched grass hillside die, I die-cut green cardstock and ink blended the bottom with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink to give it some shading. I also added texture by splattering it with white acrylic paint.

Once all of the elements were dry, I adhered them to the background panel using foam adhesive and finished my card by embossing the sentiment.  

In case you missed the announcement, here is the official Instagram post. I hope you will come back later in the month to see more of my design team projects featuring this awesome company.

MFT Stamps Bunny Wishes | Rainbow Slimline Card | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps Bunny Wishes

Hi crafty friends! What is it about rainbows that put a smile on people’s faces? Maybe it’s because a rainbow symbolizes hope, happiness, and a sense of excitement. Or, maybe it’s the promise of sunshine after the rain.  Whatever feelings a rainbow elicits for you, for these two friends, a rainbow makes their hearts feel happy!

I stamped and colored the image from MFT Stamps’ Bunny Wishes set using Copic Markers. Next, I die-cut the SMILE die-namics and used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to add the rainbow colors.

Copic Marker Combination

Bunnies: E44, E43, E2, E41

Zig Clean Color Real Brush

Pink: 025, 200
Yellow: 052, 050, 051
Green: 041, 053
Blue: 030, 031, 036
Purple: 080, 081

 

MFT Stamps Bunny Wishes


To create the scene, first I die cut smooth cardstock using a stitched slimline die then, I ink blended the sky using the Micro Cloud Stencil and Distress Oxide ink in Mermaid Lagoon.  I used a stitched hillside die to create a grounding element for my image and added a little shading with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.

To finish my card, I stamped and embossed a sentiment, then added all the images with liquid adhesive or glue dots. A quick little tip for aligning the large SMILE die-cut is to use a ruler since the letters are individual and I wanted to be sure that such a bold sentiment was perfectly straight.

After coloring all the images and using my ScanNCut to cut those out, I set them aside to work on the background. Using a stitched rectangle die, I trimmed a piece of cardstock to an A2-sized panel and inked the background with Distress Oxide ink in Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick.

Next, I used a piece of teal cardstock and the Stitched Pond Die to die-cut the pond, then I inked the edges with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide.

Lawn Fawn Toucan Do It | Ink Spray Background | Copic Coloring

Lawn Fawn Toucan Do It

Hey crafty friends! How many times have you heard that classifying yourself as a beach or mountain person says something about your personality? Apparently, beach people are more of an extrovert and mountain people are more introverts.  

I’m not sure if there is any truth but it’s been a dream of mine to visit the mountains of the rainforest and the inspiration behind my card.

For this card, I used Toucan Do It, Stitched Mountain Borders, and Meadow Borders Die all by Lawn Fawn. I began by stamping the images onto smooth cardstock and using my Copic Markers to color everything in the following color combinations.

 

Copic Marker Combination

Cheetah Body: E59, E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
Cheetah Spots: E29, E23
Toucan: N9, N7, N5, N3, Y35, YR00, Y00, YG05, B05, B00, R39
Butterflies: B05, B00, N7, RV19, RV52
Tropical Palm Leaves: G28, G07, YG25, YG11
Tropical Foliage: BG57, BG32, Y06,
Tree Branches: E27, E25, E23, E21, YG01, YG05, YG17
Hibiscus Flower: RV66, Y06
Flower: RV00, RV55, Y06

 

Lawn Fawn Toucan Do It


After coloring all of the images and using my ScanNCut to cut those out, I set them aside to work on the background. Using Distress Oxide spray in Mermaid Lagoon and Dylusions Ink Spray in London Blue, I sprayed a panel of watercolor paper for the background and then began working on the background elements.

I die cut the Stitched Mountains using kraft cardstock and added a little Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink for dimension. Next, I die-cut green cardstock and added Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink to the bottom edge.

Once all of the elements had time to dry or set, I used glue dots or liquid adhesive to create my little scene.

I was inspired by the current LawnFawnatics Challenge to create this card featuring my dream getaway destination to the mountains.

Hi crafty friends! I have a fun one-layer scene card to share with you featuring Newton’s Nook Designs’ Winston Takes Flight.

I created a simple one-layer card by stamping out the images, which luckily did not overlap.

I splattered the background with white paint and colored the images with my Copic Markers.

When my card panel was complete, I used a stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel to A2 size. For the sentiment, I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and set it with black embossing powder.

I am so excited about this challenge and I hope you like my take on a one-layer challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Happy Sunday crafty friends! Cheers to kicking off the summer season. I am a preschool teacher by day, and my summer officially begins in less than two weeks. How excited am I??!!! I would say from all the excitement if I could do a backflip, I sure would!

I created a fun card featuring Gerda Steiner Designs’ Penguin Love stamp set with a fun summery background. Where else can you see penguins and palm trees? Only in Florida!

To begin this card, I stamped and colored the image with Copic Markers and used my ScanNCut to cut the image out.

Penguin: N9, N7, N5, N3, N1, N0
Heart: RV17, RV55, RV52, RV00

For the background, I started by ink blending Tattered Rose in the center and Worn Lipstick around the edges. Then I used a cover die to die cut the panel. I also added the palm tree that was die cut and colored with Copic Markers.

When my background was done, I added the sentiment, clouds, palm tree, and the image with foam adhesive or glue dots to finish off my card. I hope you like my card and as always, thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Happy May, crafty friends! It’s the first Sunday of the month and that means a new challenge on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. This month, team A is sponsored by Joy Clair Designs. The design team was given “Cup of Joy Digital Set” to work with for this challenge.

I printed the image onto smooth white cardstock and created a mask by printing the image again onto a piece of copy paper. Once I had the mask in place, I ink blended the background using Mustard Seed Distress Oxide ink and Wild Honey Distress Oxide at the edges. For texture, I created white and yellow splatters and then colored the image with Copic Markers.

Gerda Steiner Happy Hoppy Bunny

Hey crafty friends! And Happy Easter to all those that celebrate. In my family, we celebrate Easter by attending church and enjoying family time in the afternoon. My children are a little past the Egg Hunt stage (which I’m thankful for) but not too old for an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt!

My card today is not religious in nature but instead features the Easter Bunny. I began the card by stamping the images onto smooth cardstock and using my Copic Markers to color all images in the following color combinations.

Copic Marker Combination

Bunny: E57, E55, E53, E51, R20
Balloon: Y00, Y13, Y15, Y17
Flowers: YG17, YG01, Y19, RV00, RV17, RV52

Gerda Steiner Happy Hoppy Bunny

 

I used a panel of pink cardstock and heat embossed the polka dot background stamp by MFT Stamps. I wanted to add some dimension to the edges by inking with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink.

Next, I created the central scene by die-cutting a piece of teal cardstock. I inked the panel with Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide ink at the outer edges. Then, I added the grassy hill die-cut from green cardstock and inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.

After the background was complete, I stamped the sentiment and added the images using glue dots or liquid adhesive to finish my card.

I hope you like this little bright and cheery Easter card. As always, thank you so much for stopping by; until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

I love to integrate bright backgrounds and for this card, I created a sunny cloudy sky using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink. For the grassy hill, I simply die-cut a piece of white cardstock and ink blended the bottom portion with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn at the top. I splattered both panels with white paint for texture.

Once the panels were dry, I used a stitched slimline rectangle die to die cut the entire panel. Then, I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Black Onyx ink. To finish the card, I added all of the images using glue dots or liquid adhesive.

For this card, I was inspired by the MFT Slimline challenge.
