My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals ~ Copic Colored ~ Distress Oxides Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

This weeks’ card is inspired by MFT’s Color Challenge # 82, and the card I made using MFT’s Polar Bear Pals. Personally, I love polar bears and I think they are one of the most majestic wild animals on this earth.

My Favorite Things Polar Bear Pals stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress Oxides ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I started by ink blending a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Oxides Ink in Salty Ocean to create the background and die cut the panel using MFT’s Stitched Rectangle Stax’s.
The various polar bear images were stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I am still learning to pair my combinations and blending but I think these images did not turn out too bad.

Working on the snow banks, I used a piece of white glittered cardstock and die cut the banks using MFT’s Stitched Basic Edges 2. I adhered those pieces to the card base and added my images with some foam tape for dimension.

All there was left to do to complete this card was stamp the sentiment and add some falling snow using 3D Puffy paint. In hindsight, I would have chosen a different sentiment and maybe even heat embossed it with white embossing powder. And my falling white snow has now taken on a bluish tint from the background. And lastly, I will be very happy to finish using up the glitter paper, as it flakes terribly. Although I am happy with the design of my card, some components not so much and will note to self for future!

The inspiration for this card is MFT’s Color Challenge # 82

That’s it for me for now, as always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

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!

 

 

And the Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge # 78

Newton’s Nook Designs Christmas Delivery ~ Copic Markers ~ Distress Ink Background ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

I have been falling a little bit behind my Christmas card making since I had a week off of work (preschool teacher) and my kiddos were home for the Thanksgiving break. But I was able to make one adorable card using a Newton’s Nook Designs’ stamp inspired by the Inky Paws challenge #60

Newton’s Nook Designs Christmas Delivery stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

First, I stamped all of the images onto a piece of Neenah Solar white 80 lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black dye ink. Next, I used my ScanNCut 2 to cut out all of the images. I am still learning how to properly calibrate my machine so that it cuts an either even white border around the image or right on the stamped line of the image. And last, I used my Copic Markers to color all of the images with the following combinations:

Sled: Y35, Y38 and E55 and E44, E47, and E79
Newton (Cat): C3, C5 and R20
Dog: 0, C1, C3
Christmas Hat: 0, C1, R29 and R59
Presents: R29 and R39, YG13 and YG6, B2 and B5
Trees: G05 and G28

Newton’s Nook Designs Christmas Delivery stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

To create the background, I used a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and did some ink blending using Distress inks in chipped sapphire and peacock feathers, which are my favorite color combination to create a nighttime sky. Using MFT’s Snowfall stencil and Nuvo glimmer paste, I added some glittered snow to mimic the falling snow on the background panel.
To complete this card, I added the black frame around the edge of the card, the sentiment embossed with a silver embossing powder and a silver bottom layer for a little sparkle. As a final touch I took a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter brush pen and bedazzled all of the components of my card. It’s a Christmas card and it HAS to sparkle. And that will complete another Christmas card for this year, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helper ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas card

Hey everyone,

Moving right along on making Christmas cards, I made this one inspired by YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #77 using Santa’s Helpers stamp set from Your Next Stamp.

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helpers stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned papers handmade Christmas card.

I wanted to use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers for this card so I began by stamping all of the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Versafine Onyx black ink. I also embossed the images using black embossing powder, so that I can have a nice dark outline.
Using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, I used the following color combinations:

Chimney: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Santa suit: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Santa boots and belt: 095 Dark Gray and 010 Black for shadows
Santa hats: 024 Wine Red and 260 Deep Red for shadows
Penguins: 095 Dark Gray and 010 Black for shadows
Penguins beaks and feet: 070 Orange
Penguin bellies: 091 Light Gray
Snow: 091 Light Gray and 099  Cool Gray 1

Your Next Stamp Santa’s Helpers stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and patterned papers handmade Christmas card.

To put this card together, I fussy cut the images out and adhered them onto an A2 sized card base using the sketch template and patterned paper from Recollections called Christmas Noel paper pad. I generally leave my cards blank on the inside, however, the sentiment in the stamp set was just begging to be added and since I had an extra penguin image I added the little guy inside to complete my card.

The Greeting Farm American Heroes ~ One Layer Card ~ Copic Markers ~ Veterans Day card

Hey everyone,

I made a one layer veterans inspired card using two stamps set from The Greeting Farm, perfect for thanking the veterans or those still serving in honor of Veteran’s Day that we celebrated this past Saturday! This particular card was inspired by The Greeting Farm’s November Farm Fresh Challenge – 1 layer card.

The Greeting Farm American Heroes and Main Street stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Veterans Day card.

To create a one layer card that looks 3-dimensional, it’s important to stamp the images at different levels so that it looks as if the items in the front are larger than the items in the back hence the 3-dimensional perspective. This is usually achieved by stamping images, masking the forefront images and then stamping the images behind in the background.

I am also super excited that I was able to film the process video for this card and will be posting it to my You Tube Channel for those that want to see it here!

The Greeting Farm American Heroes and Main Street stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Veterans Day card.

I used Copic colors to color all of the images and the Copic Combinations I used are: (There is a lot!)

Army girl
Skin: E00, E11, E13 and R20
Hair: Y21, Y26 and YR24
Camouflage Outfit: E31, YG67, G94, G99 and E79

Airforce boy
Skin: E00, E11 and E13
Hair: E42, E43 and E44
Outfit: G94 and G99
Glasses: C5, C7 and C9

Flag
Red Stripes: R46 and R39
White Stripes: C1
Blue: B37 and B39 added white dots for Stars with white gel pen
Flag pole: C3 and C5

Houses
Shutters and Ownings: R27, B05 and C5 to mute the brightness
Roofs: E55 and C5
Windows: B000

Other
Sidewalk: C1, C3 and C5
Grass: YG00, YG01, YG03, YG05 and YG07
Trees: YG25, YG63, G94, E47 andE79
Clouds: B0000 and B00  

I’m very proud of the end result of this card as this is one of my first few attempts at a single layer card, especially with this much detail. This card is for a special veteran that served in the Air force during the Vietnam War, and we want him to know that we are very thankful for his service and his sacrifice for our country. As always, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star ~ Zig Clean Color Real Brush ~ Christmas Card

Hey everyone,

It’s been a hectic two weeks around here, hence the lack of posts and participation in the card challenges that I love so much.
But I’m finally finished with the project that took me away from my craft time and now I can get back in to my happy place to create some cards.
This card was inspired by Your Next Stamps’ Sketch or Color Challenge # 76. This week I choose to do the color challenge with this one layer card.

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

I did not intentionally set out to make a one layer card (originally, I wanted to use an evergreen trees die in the background) but the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry, so they say!
I started by stamping the images onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock using Versafine Onyx black ink and masking it using Molotow art masking liquid.
I have to say that I was not a 100% happy with this product when I removed it as it left some of the blue residue onto the image. Perhaps it’s a user error and I will try another time before I make up my mind. 
I wanted to create a wintery scene background and used my favorite distress inks for the night time sky and added a spritz or two of the Shimmer Sparkle spritz for an all over sparkle. I finished the background with splatter of diluted white paint to mimic snow.
I used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color my images and very little water as I had to cover up some of the blue residue left by the masking pen.

Colors I used:
Bear: 068 Deep Brown, 065 Mid Brown and 072 Beige 
Scarf: 029 Geranium Red and 022 Carmine Red
Gingerbread man: 072 Beige
Shoes/bow 032 Persian Blue 
Hat: 022 Carmine Red 
Star: 051 Lemon Yellow 

Your Next Stamp Huggles Christmas Star colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress ink background handmade Christmas card.

To put this card together, I cut the main panel using a stitched rectangle die and adhered it to a white A2 sized card base.
The sentiment I used is from the same stamp set and I die cut it with a banner die after stamping it with Versafine Onyx black ink. And that will complete this simple yet I think stunning Christmas card!
I followed the Color Challenge on this card and hope that I made a card that inspired you.

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

Newton’s Nook Designs Fall-ing for you and Wagon of Wishes~Fall Inspired~Copic Colored~Challenge entry

Hey everyone,

My kids and I have this little thing between us where every Friday afternoon (after I pick them up from school), we dance to “Hands up for the Weekend” by Eden xo and today is definitely a day to dance it up.

For my end of the week project, I made a fall inspired card using Newton’s Nook Designs stamps and am adding this card into the Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge # 57.

Newton’s Nook Designs Fall-ing for you and Wagon of Wishes stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink scene background handmade fall inspired card.

To start, I stamped the pumpkins from Fall-ing for you and Newton in his wagon from Wagon of Wishes onto some Spectrum Noir Ultra smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Dye ink.  I Copic colored the images and fussy cut them out.

Newton’s Nook Designs Fall-ing for you and Wagon of Wishes stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink scene background handmade fall inspired card.

Colors I used:
Pumpkins: YR65, YR68 and YR09
Wagon: R24, R27, R29 and R39
Wheels/handle: C5, C7 and C9
Newton: E55, E57 and E59

Newton’s Nook Designs Fall-ing for you and Wagon of Wishes stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink scene background handmade fall inspired card.

Next, I took a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blended the background using my favorite combination for the sky and the grass. I also die cut the panel using Gina Marie Designs’ stitched scalloped rectangle die for a more polished look.

Newton’s Nook Designs Fall-ing for you and Wagon of Wishes stamp set colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink scene background handmade fall inspired card.

To put this card together, I cut a piece of bright orange cardstock and adhered it to an A2 sized card base, next I added a piece of patterned paper and added my panel with the scene background using fun foam for added dimension. I then arranged my image components and added a sentiment from Fall-ing for you stamp set to complete my card.

I really like the end result of this card and I especially love the contrast between the colors of the patterned paper and the scene panel. As always thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Hero Arts CL Christmas Tree with Lawn Fawn Into the Woods~ Christmas Tag~Copic Colored~Challenge entry

Hey everyone,

So I seem to be on a Christmas roll as last week I completed my first Christmas card and this week I made some Christmas tags for the upcoming season. They are fairly simple but I think they are absolutely adorable! These tags are inspired by A Blog Named Hero Challenge.  

Lawn Fawn Into the Woods combined with Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and layered with dye inks handmade Christmas tag.

First I die cut all of the tags from a piece of Neenah Solar White Smooth 80 lb cardstock, but if I had to do it over, I would have cut it from a 110 lb cardstock, as the 80 lb is not as sturdy as I would like the tag to be…. Live and learn!
Next, using the MISTI tool positioner, I stamped the Christmas tree from the Hero Arts’ Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp set directly onto all of the tags using various green dye inks. The last tree layer was stamped with Versamark ink and Hero Arts’ white embossing powder to mimic snow on the Christmas tree.

Lawn Fawn Into the Woods combined with Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and layered with dye inks handmade Christmas tag.

Next, I began working on the focal point image and I choose to add a baby deer from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods stamp set. I Copic colored the images before fussy-cutting them out.

Copic colors I used: E33, E35,E37and R20

I also used white gel pen to add three white dots on his body.

Lawn Fawn Into the Woods combined with Hero Arts Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and layered with dye inks handmade Christmas tag.

To complete the tags, I stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts’ Color Layering Christmas Tree stamp set using Hero Arts’ Black dye ink, adhered the baby deer onto some foam adhesive for dimension, added a few gems for a little bling, and looped some matching twine on top of the tags.

These tags as simple as they may be are perfect to add to the teacher’s gift or student gift exchange!

Until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Cute Critters by Emma

OK, so this was a card designed, created, and crafted by my Jr Designer in training, Emmanushka. This 7 year old little spitfire is always in my crafting room, getting into stuff, looking at ways to repurpose things, and crafting something from pretty much anything. She picked out the background papers, and where she wanted the stamps to go, and colored the card. All I did was stamp the paper, and some minor assembly. The rest was left to her imaginative mind!

Which I have to admit…came out pretty darn good. Even in the photo staging, she chose the props and the little string of lights to “give it some bling”. She came up with the idea, and concept of the card and which colors she wanted to use. She used my set of Spectrum Noir markers and cardstock, and picked out the design from my Lawn Fawn collection.

So this was a cute little Birthday Card for one of her classmates created by Emmanushka that I am entering into the LawnFawnatics challenge.
Be sure to leave her a little comment or a thumbs up and let her know how she did as Jr Craft Master in the Making!

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

Lawn Fawn Christmas inspired card~ Copic colored~Lawn Fawnatics Challenge entry 14

Hey everyone,

I finally made my first Christmas card of the season! Not bad, considering that there is 73 days until Christmas.
This year, I’m starting a little early and I started with a whimsy, cutesy card created by combining three different stamp sets from Lawn Fawn!
This card is also my entry into the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 14 – Happy Little Critters. Please follow the link for more information.

Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park, Winter Sparrows and Ready, Set, Snow stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

I’ve been very intrigued with scene making ever since I saw a couple of other bloggers post their projects and I thought this would be an ideal opportunity to give it a go.
I first stamped all of the images onto a piece of Spectrum Noir Ultra smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo dye ink.
Using my Copic Markers, I colored all of the images…..

Birds: E55 and E57
Snowman: BG000, BV0000 and colorless blender
Red caps/shawls: R24 and R27
Green shawls: YG05 and YG07
Carrot Noses/Beaks: YR14 and YR18

Lawn Fawn Winter in the Park, Winter Sparrows and Ready, Set, Snow stamp sets colored with Copic Markers and Distress ink backgrounds handmade Christmas card.

Next, I created the scene for all of the cute images by creating two snow banks using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Hillside Borders die and some white smooth cardstock.
The sky background was created by ink blending my favorite Distress Inks onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock.

After adhering the background pieces to an A2 sized card base, I added the images onto some foam square for dimension and a stitched frame around the edge of the card for a more polished look. And that completes my first Christmas card and entry into the challenge!

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