Your Next Stamp Holiday Buddies ~ Copic Colored ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

I still have so many Christmas cards to make and so little time left before I have to send them out. This week I made another Christmas card using very traditional Christmas colors to play along with YNS Sketch and Color challenge # 78.  

Your Next Stamp Holiday Buddies colored with Copic Markers and Christmas patterned paper background handmade Christmas card.

I chose to create a card based on the sketch this week and use some very Christmas-y patterned papers for the card base, which I layered according to the sketch. For the focal layer, I used a stitched oval die to cut a piece of white cardstock and add my components on top.

The image of the dog is from Your Next Stamps’ Holiday buddies, at least I think it’s a dog but it could be a sheep, although he is one funky colored sheep if he is a sheep. The layer of trees is cut using Your Next Stamps’ Evergreen tree border die and sparkle green cardstock.

I colored the “dog” using Copic Markers with the following color combinations:

Bird: W5, W7, YR12 and YR15
Bird’s hat: YG03, YG05, R29 and R39
Dog: E11, E13 and E25
   belly: 0, C1
Dog’s hat: R29, R39, 0 and C1

Your Next Stamp Holiday Buddies colored with Copic Markers and Christmas patterned paper background handmade Christmas card.

 

I adhered all of the components to an A2 sized card base and added my sentiment from the stamp set using a tinsel embossing powder in red. And that will complete another Christmas card!!! YAY!!!

With this card, I am also participating in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything goes!

Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie ~ Copic Colored ~ Happy Dance card

Hey everyone,

I just adore this little Elphie card I made and will be entering it into the Lawn Fawnatics Color Inspiration Board Challenge #9! 

Lawn Fawn Elphie Selfie colored with Copic Markers, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Rainbow patterned paper and Lawn Fawn inks handmade card.

To create this card, I started by stamping the solid hearts from Lawn Fawn’s Elphie Selfie stamp set with the different color inks inspired by the challenge colors onto a piece of white cardstock panel. Using Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Rectangle Stackable dies, I cut the panel down using the second largest die.
I also stamped Elphie with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink onto a piece of Spectrum Noir paper and colored her in using my Copic markers.

Colors I used: C1, C3 and C5

I’m still new to Copic markers and I’m still learning about the blending, shadow and color combinations but I’m practicing and hopefully it will show in my cards.

To put this card together, I reached into my beloved Lawn Fawn paper hoarding stash and pulled out this teal plaid paper for the background. I cut the panel down to 4.25” by 5.5” and adhered it to an A2 sized top folding card base. (Yikes, that was my last piece of plaid paper and after a minor panic attack, I placed my order for another pad!) 
I added the hearts panel on top with fun foam for added dimension and added Elphie towards the bottom with foam tape.

For the sentiment I used Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy stamp set, and after looking at little Elphie who looks like she’s dancing, I chose Happy Dance, which I stamped onto a piece of black card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

And that completes my very happy Elphie card for an entry into Lawn Fawnatics Color Inspiration Board Challenge #9! 

Have a great weekend, and as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Hey everyone,

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

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.

Love from Lizi products showcase

Hey everyone,

I am finally able to sit down and write my post for a few cards I made using the Love from Lizi products. Love from Lizi is an online store in the U.K that sells card kits, mega-packs, mini-packs and other crafting products. She carries the most amazing patterned paper products, in my opinion that I’ve seen.  A few weeks ago I purchased several items and was so excited to start creating with these goodies!

I mostly choose to focus on the beautiful patterned paper and added very little embellishments. And I mostly focused on birthday cards because I needed a birthday card for my mom.

Love from Lizi Card kits, mega-packs and mini-packs crafting products for handmade card.

For this card, I used two patterned papers from the January card kit I previously purchased. The bottom wood grain paper is adhered directly to the base of an A2 size card, while the beautiful rose patterned paper is accented with stitched scallop border die from Lawn Fawn and adhered to a piece of fun foam for some added dimension. To finish this card, I die cut the sentiment from an add-on die and a butterfly from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack using copper mirror cardstock.

For card two, I used a card base from my stash because I specifically wanted a pearlized look to the card. Using a piece of patterned paper from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack, I cut the bottom of the paper using a check mark die from MFT stitched scallop basic edge set. The bird stamp, also from the Vintage Blooms mega-pack was stamped directly onto the base of the card using VersaMark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Tip to self for future, stamping onto a card with a pearlized finish is tricky. Heat embossing is not much better. I went through a few card bases before I was happy with the end result. I stamped a sentiment from the Soft Floral mini-pack and embossed it in gold to match the bird. To finish the card, I used a heart wood chip veneer, embossed it in gold and attached it as if it’s hanging from the sentiment.

My intent was to give my mom one of these two cards for her birthday BUT as I was finishing she stood looking over my shoulder and wanted to know what I was going to do with those cards.

So moving onto card three, I created this background paper by stamping a faded text background using Encore ultimate metallic gold ink. I did a little ink blending using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick to add a touch of subtle color. Using a sticker from March card kit add-on, I added some foam squares for dimension before adding it to my card. To complete the card, I added a small butterfly sticker from the same sticker set. With this card, I felt that less is more and didn’t want to take away from the subtleness by adding any more embellishments.

And since I was on a roll, I made one more card. This time I used the butterfly stamp from Vintage Blooms mega-pack to create a background for my card by stamping it several times onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and using a charcoal embossing powder. I did some ink blending again using Distress Ink Oxides in Worn Lipstick. To finish the card, I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set in Soft Floral mini-pack onto a piece of black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added a piece of foam tape to the back of the sentiment piece and adhered it to the card.

I wanted to mention that I was in no way sponsored to write this post or that I am not an affiliate of the shop but choose to showcase Love from Lizi products because I personally use them and I absolutely adore all of the products in her shop. More information can be found at lovefromlizi.com

I hope you enjoyed the cards I made, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
