MFT Stamps We Beelong | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps We Beelong

 

Hi crafty friends! Aren’t these bears adorable??? Well, if you ask me, ALL bears are adorable. I am a teddy bear collector and my love of teddy bears comes out of my childhood love for the teddy bear.

For this card, I used a recently released We Beelong stamp set by MFT Stamps. I began the card by stamping all of the images using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock.

Copic Marker Combination

Bears: E44, E43, E42, E41, R30
Water: BG45, BG53, BG01, BG000
Flowers: RV19, RV02, Y17
Grass: YG17, YG05, YG01
Bee: Y17, Y15, Y11, W9, W5, W3, BG02, BG000

For the background, I ink blended two hillside die cuts and the sky. Next, I added some hearts with a heart stencil then added interest with blue ink splatters.

Using a sweet sentiment from the stamp set, I white heat embossed it onto a piece of black cardstock before trimming it with a sentiment strip. Lastly, I added all of the elements to the front of my card panel using foam adhesive, liquid glue, or glue dots.

Julia Spiri The Little Ladybug

 

Hey crafty friends! Welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Challenge Blog for the month of June. If you are wondering how it could be June already, then you are not alone! It seems that one blink and we are past another month.

For this challenge, I used The Little Ladybug by Julia Spiri, and created a fun Summer scene card. Just in case I didn’t mention it before, but scene cards are my most favorite card design to create.

I printed the image onto a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of smooth white cardstock and used my Copic Markers. I began by coloring in the sky a nice sunset shade. After coloring the bottom part of the scene, I decided that I did not like the sky. Since I added yellow, I had to think of a way to creatively cover it without creating a bigger mess.

I added the cliffs in and that took care of half the problem but the center portion of the card was still a bit of a dilemma. I thought that my trusty Distress Oxide inks would solve the problem and Salty Ocean did the trick. 

Copic Color Combination

Water: B000, B00, B12, B14, BG11
Grass: YG03, YG17, YG67
Sand: E21
Cliffs: E70, E71, E74
Leaf: YG17, YG05, YG03, YG00
Pink: RV17. RV55, RV52″
Yellow: Y38, Y18, Y04
Black: N5, N3, N1
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20

To complete my scene, I added clouds by using diluted white acrylic paint and a stiff stenciling brush. Since my card was printed to an A2-sized panel, I simply trimmed the panel with a rectangle-stitched die and added the sentiment.

We would love for you to join us and enter in the World-Wide Open Design Team Challenge this month. Don’t forget, you must be part of a design team to participate unless you are part of the Julia Spiri Facebook Group.

MFT Stamps Lovable Leopards | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps Lovable Leopard

 

Hey crafty friends! It has been such a busy week that I absolutely needed some downtime and what better way to relax than to create a fun card. Normally, I find coloring to be my solace and these guys are just the cutest image.

Unfortunately, this stamp set is discontinued but there are a ton of other stamps similar to this one by MFT Stamps.

I started my card by creating the background first. Using MFT Stamps’ Mini Cloud Edges stencil, I created a fun cloudy sky with Distress Oxide Ink in Mermaid Lagoon. Next, I stamped and colored my images using Copic Markers.

Copic Marker Combination

Leopards: YR18, YR14, Y35, Y23, YR30
Nose/Snout: YR24, Y23, YR30
Brown: E29, E27, E25
Green: YG17, YG05, YG03, YG01

 

MFT Stamps Lovable Leopard

 

After coloring all of the images, I used the coordinating dies and set the images aside to continue creating the background.

I ink blended the grassy hill using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink then added a little Lucky Clover to create some depth. For the last element on my scene card, I die-cut yellow cardstock and added Wild Honey and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide for dimension.

After coloring and ink blending, I began building my scene card by adding the image and die cuts with foam adhesive or liquid glue.

And finally, I heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and trimmed it with a banner sentiment strip.

I hope you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it. As a bonus, I have the perfect recipients for this card in mind. I want them to know that even though we have not seen each other for a while, I hold them very dear in my heart.

Good morning crafty friends! It’s time for a new challenge on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. This month’s sponsor is Ching-Chou-Kuik with her stunning and whimsy images and as always, our challenge is Anything Goes.

I used the Lil Bookworm Fairy to create a scene card, which happens to be my favorite design. After printing my image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock, I drew in the details with a pencil. Next, I created several masks and covered my images to ink blend the background.

Using Distress Ink in Blueprint Sketch, I inked up the bottom of my scene card and added Wilted Violet towards the top.

After removing the masks, I colored in the rest of the card using my Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combination

Skin:  E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E25, E27, E29

Since my card was printed to an A2-sized card panel, I used a large stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel, then added my sentiment by white heat embossing it onto a piece of black cardstock.

Newton’s Nook Designs Newton Dreams of Paris | Copic Coloring

Newton's Nook Designs Newton Dreams of Paris

 

Hey crafty friends! It has been a dream of mine to one day travel to Paris since I was in my early teens. I don’t know what happened, but I blinked and time flew by. I can still dream along with Newton’s Dreams of Paris stamp set by Newton’s Nook.

One of my favorite card designs is to create scenes and I thought this was a perfect stamp to create a French countryside scene with Newton and of course the Eiffel Tower. I began the card by stamping all of the images onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. Then I colored the images with Copic Markers using the color combinations listed below.

Copic Marker Combination

Black Cat: N7, N5, N3, N1, R32, R30
Red Shirt: R29, R27, R24, N1, N0
Beige Cat: E44, E31, E53, E51, R20, R30
Black Hat: N9, N7, N5, N3
Red Scarf: R29, R27, R24
Flowers/Hot Air Balloons: BG49, BG45, BG53, V17, V15, V12, RV17, RV55, RV52, Y18, Y15, Y00
Eiffel Tower: N7, N5, N3, N1

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 ink in Tumbled Glass, I lightly inked up a piece of heavy-weight smooth cardstock. Next, I created the clouds using the Cloudy Sky Stencil and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. I trimmed the background panel using a stitched rectangle die and set it aside to work on the grassy hills.

With Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide inks, I ink blended a couple of strips of cardstock and die-cut them using the Stitched Hillside Borders die by Lawn Fawn. And finally, I created a speech bubble for the sentiment by modifying the cloud stamp image.

At this point, I had all of the elements and began adhering the images to create a fun Parisian Countryside scene with two of the most adorable cats!

MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together

 

Hey crafty friends! During the summer months, I like to re-build my stash of birthday cards for the upcoming year. Today, I’m sharing a fun birthday-inspired card featuring MFT Stamps’ Let’s Stick Together. These cacti are beyond adorable!

I stamped all of the images onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. All the images are colored with Copic Markers using the color combinations listed below.

 

MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together

 

Copic Marker Combination

Cacti: G28, YG67, YG17, YG13, YG01
Terracotta Pots: E18, E19, E08, E97, E95
Pink: RV17, RV55, RV52

I absolutely love bright and vibrant colors on my cards and this card called for a nice yellow background. Using Distress Oxide inks in Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade, I inked up a piece of heavy-weight smooth cardstock. Then I created some texture by spritzing water on the panel and blotting it dry with a clean paper towel.

I thought the panel needs a little more so I splattered diluted white paint, yellow paint, and a little bit of orange paint for a festive look.

 

MFT Stamps Let's Stick Together

 

I was inspired by the MFT Sketch Challenge for the layout of this card and I followed their design sketch. For the rectangle element on my card, I simply added the scalloped rectangle frames and placed my images in the center. Finally, to finish this card, I stamped the sentiment and layered the front panel with foam adhesive to a brown cardstock mat.

Hey crafty friends! Welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Challenge, today I’m sharing a special card I made for a wonderful friend of mine in celebration of Teacher’s Appreciation Week. Now typically, one would give a card of gratitude during this week, but a special person is a co-worker and I would not be the teacher I am without her.

MFT Stamps Magical Dragons | Copic Coloring

MFT Magical Dragons

 

Hey crafty friends! I needed to make a card for a wonderful friend of mine and reached in my stash of older stamps for this one. Being a huge fan of mythological creatures and dragons, as cute as these, they are at the top of my list.

I am slowly working through my stash of stamps that I had to have and never used, you know the one most of us crafters seem to have. And this set was perfect for the occasion. I started by stamping out all of the images with black ink and coloring with Copic Markers.

Copic Marker Combination

Teal: BG49, BG57, BG45, BG53, B00
On the second blend, I added BG72 in the shadows and BG11 to the highlight areas to create a teal blend.
Pink: RV17, RV52, RV52
Princess: Skin E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E30, E33, E31, YR31
Dress: RV17, RV55, RV52
Crown: Y26, Y21, Y02
Clouds: BG0000, BG000, BG01

 

MFT Magical Dragons

 

For the background, I created an ink blended background and a grassy hill using an older die from MFT Stamps. The Snowy Hillside Die-namics is not available anymore but there are several other similar products on the market.

Finally, to complete this card, I added a brown mat to an A2-sized white card base. Next, I layered the background elements using foam adhesive and added a white heat embossed sentiment strip onto the same brown cardstock.

For a little relaxation, I colored the other images in this stamp set to use for another time.

Fabrika Fantasy Beautiful Seahorse

 

Hi crafty friends! Am I the only one that wonders how it could be May?? I guess time does fly and waits for no one. Today, a new challenge begins on the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and the design team is creating with stunning images by Fabrika Fantasy.

I created a thank-you card using the Beautiful Seahorse.  I printed the image onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and colored the image with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combination

Gold: YR18, Y35, Y11, E44
Yellow: Y15, Y11, Y00, E43

Purple: V17, V15, V12, BV08
Fish: Y28, Y26, Y15, Y06, Y02, Y00

 

Fabrika Fantasy Beautiful Seahorse

Since my card was printed to an A2-sized card panel, I used a large stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel, then added a mask to ink blend the background. To create a mask, I simply print the image a second time on regular paper, fussy cut the image out, and add liquid repositionable adhesive.

After ink blending the background using Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink, I added white paint splatters to create some texture in my card. I created a sentiment strip by white heat embossing onto black cardstock then trimmed the sentiment into a small strip.

Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubbles Sentiment | Copic Coloring

Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments

 

Hey crafty friends! I’m sharing a fun birthday Rainbow-inspired card today featuring the adorable little mouse from Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Bubbles Sentiment stamp set.

My intention was to create a mouse holding a balloon for a fun Rainbow birthday card. I started by arranging the images in my Misti since I would be repeat stamping, then I stamped out the image several times. Next, using a Copic-friendly black marker, I drew a line connecting the images to create a string for the balloon.

Copic Marker Combination

Pink Mouse/Balloon: RV66, RV55, RV52, RV10, RV00 (On Balloon)
Green Mouse/Balloon: YG17, YG06, YG03, YG01, YG00
Blue Mouse/Balloon: BG07, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000
Yellow Mouse/Balloon:  Y38, Y18, Y15, Y13, Y11
Orange Mouse/Balloon: YR09, YR07, YR04, YR02, YR01

 

For the background, I decided to create a rainbow watercolor smooshing look. Using a piece of acetate, I smooshed the ink onto white cardstock and added additional water droplets with a clean brush. I used Kitch Flamingo, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, and Carved Pumpkin to create the background. When I was happy with the background, I set the entire panel to completely dry.

 

Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments

 

I used the Scalloped Slimline with Hearts in Landscape die to die-cut a piece of black cardstock. I layered the die-cut on a piece of slate gray cardstock and stamped out the sentiment. To create a little interest to the background, I created a stencil by die-cutting cardstock with the Polka Heart Backdrop by Lawn Fawn and ink blending an bolder colors of Distress Oxide ink. Finally, I added the watercolor panel with foam adhesive to layered cardstock.

I have a speed coloring video on my Instagram for you to check out if you’re interested, where I share how I colored one of the images.  As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
