Newton’s Nook Designs Deer Friends | Christmas Tag | Copic Coloring

Newton's Nook Designs Deer Friends

 

Hey crafty friends! As we near Christmas Celebrations and begin exchanging gifts, creating handmade gifts tags is the perfect finishing touch to add.

For this tag, I used Newton’s Nook Designs’ Deer Friends stamp set, Fox Hollow stamp set, and tag dies by Sizzix.

To begin my tag, I first stamped several images of the deer from the Deer Friends stamp set, and the evergreen trees from the Fox Hollow stamp set. Then, I used my Copic Markers to color in all of the images.

Copic Marker Combination

Deer: E39, E37, E35, E33, R22, R21, R20
Light: E33, E31, E30
Tree: G28, YG67, YG63, YG03

After coloring, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out leaving a small border. I knew I wanted to have more of the ink blended background visible so I opted to use a large tag die-cut. My tags are die-cut from Bristol smooth cardstock using Sizzix Framelits Tag Dies.

The sky is ink blended with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink at the top and Dried Marigold Distress Oxide ink toward the bottom of the tag. I added splatters to the background with diluted acrylic paint that mimics snow.

Once the tag was dry, I stamped the sentiment with black ink. I created a snowy hill from white cardstock and attached the images with glue dots.

To finish this tag, I fed a coordinating ribbon through the hole at top of the tag. This tag was inspired by the current Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge. As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

Milkewee Reindeer with Friends Digital Stamp | Copic Coloring

Milkewee Deer with Friends

 

Hey crafty friends! I am beyond excited to share today’s card with you. It features a digital image by an extremely talented illustrator.

Who is this illustrator, you ask? Well, I may be a little biased but nevertheless, this illustrator happens to be my little sister. She recently opened her Etsy Shop under the name Milkewee, stop by and check out her designs.

For my card, I used Reindeer with Bunny Friends digital image. To begin, I printed the image onto a piece of solar white smooth cardstock then stamped the background. I created masks for the images prior to stamping the background then used the masks to ink blend over the top portion of the card. Using Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry, and Seedless Preserve Distress Oxide inks, I created this background.  Next, I colored all the images with Copic Markers using the color combinations listed below.

Top of the head: E31, E30

Grass: YG21, YG23, YG17, YG63, G94, G99
Trees: E42, E41, E40

After coloring the image, I used a stitched rectangle die to trim the panel down to slightly smaller than an A2 size panel. I stamped and embossed the sentiment to perfectly sum up this friendship and finished this card by adhering the panel to a white card base with foam adhesive.

Newton’s Nook Designs Candy Cane | Copic Coloring

Newton's Nook Candy Cane

Hey crafty friends! Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is time to start making those Christmas cards. I am starting my Christmas card making with this adorable cat by Newton’s Nook Designs. This stamp is called Candy Cane and it is adorably festive for the occasion.

To begin, I stamped all of the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto smooth cardstock. Using my Copic Markers, I colored all of the images.

Copic Marker Combination

Cat: E44, E43, E42, R22, R20, R30
Belly: E42, E41, E40
Red: R39, R27, R24

After coloring the images, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out leaving a small border.

Working on the background, I ink blended a piece of smooth cardstock using Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. Next, I trimmed the panel into three pieces and matted the ink blended panels onto a piece of white A2-sized card front.

At this point, I was ready to assemble all of the elements onto a card base. I heat embossed a sentiment, added the images, and finished the card with a white frame.

This card was inspired by the current Newton’s Nook Inky Paws Challenge. As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

I’m so very Grateful | Lawn Fawn You Autumn Know | Copic Coloring

Lawn Fawn You Autumn Know

 

Hey crafty friends! As we celebrate Thanksgiving in the U.S. we reflect on what we are grateful for. Among many things I’m grateful for,  I’m very thankful for my family and friends that uplift me daily. I feel grateful for the most amazing group of teachers I work with that inspire me to be my best. And I’m thankful for all of you. I appreciate each and everyone one of you that stop by my little corner of the web, leave comments or connect with me through social media. I’m grateful to be part of this crafty community where we support and build each other up. I was inspired by the grateful mindset to create this slimline card featuring You Autumn Know and Scripty Autumn Sentiments by Lawn Fawn.

 

Lawn Fawn You Autumn Know

 

To begin, I stamped all of the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto smooth cardstock. Using my Copic Markers, I colored all of the images.

Copic Marker Combination

Mice: W7, W5, W3, W1, W0, R20, R30
Bellies: W3, W1, W0
Leaves: YG06, Y15
Leaves: YG03, YG01, Y15
Leaves: YR07, YR15, Y35, Y15

 

Working on the background, I die-cut brown cardstock using the largest stitched slimline die from Stitched Card Panels and Windows by Trinity Stamps. Next, I die cut a scalloped slimline panel using Scalloped Slimline with Hearts in Landscape by Lawn Fawn and ink blended the panel. 

 

Lawn Fawn You Autumn Know

At this point, I began assembling all of the elements onto my top panel using liquid adhesive or glue dots. Part of the sentiment was white heat embossed then die cut with a coordinating die. Lastly, I added the top panel to the brown mat and adhered everything to a slimline card base.

Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest | Copic Coloring

Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest

 

Hey crafty friends! I’ve been on a kick lately to reach into my stash of crafty supplies and pull-out stamps that have not seen the light of day since they were bought. You know those that you had to have, then you bought, and never used. We all have them.

Don’t get me wrong, I love new release items but there’s a little issue of space and money to consider at this point in my crafty journey. Long story short, I personally need to be very particular about the new items I purchase and revisit some of my older crafty goodies to create with.

 

Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest

 

I’m starting off with this gem by Lawn Fawn called Critters in the Forest. My favorite type of stamp is critters and these were super fun to color.

Copic Marker Combination

Pine Tree: G29, YG67, YG63, YG03
Fox: E09, YR18, YR07, YR14, YR12, E53, E50
Owl: E47, E44, E43, light E43, E41, YR18, Y35
Raccoon: W7, W5, W3, Light W5, W3, W1, W0
Hedgehog: E49, E47, E44, E43, Light E43, E52, E41
Tree trunk: E29, E27, E25, E23 Light E23, E21
Toad Stool: R29, R24, YR15, E44, E43, E41

 

After coloring the images, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out leaving a small border. For the background, I die cut a piece of Lawn Fawn paper bag cardstock using the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die. Next, I added Vintage Photo Distress ink to give the panel some depth.

 

Lawn Fawn Critters in the Forest

 

I created a little scene for the front panel by ink blending Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink for the sky. Using Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink, I ink blended the grass and die cut the panel with Simple Grassy Hillside die.

To complete this card, I added all of the focal point elements to the front panel, stamped the sentiment, and adhered the panel to the background.

All Dressed Up Digital Images

 

Good morning crafty friends! It’s time for a new Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge and this month we are sponsored by All Dressed Up. I have been a huge fan of Wendy’s hand-drawn work and love all of her digital images. This month, I opted to use this beautiful image called Sleepy Time. I thought it was a perfect time to create an Autumn-inspired card.

I printed my image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock and colored my image with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combination

        E33, E31, E30, W7, W5, W3
Yellow: Y13, Y03
Pink: RV06, RV00
Burgundy: RV69, R43

 

All Dressed Up Digital Images

 

After coloring the image, I used my ScanNCut to cut the image out then worked on creating the background.

I ink blended a panel of smooth cardstock using Broken China Distress Oxide ink at the outer edges, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide in the center. For a little interest, I added gold splatters by flicking gold spray with a paintbrush.

Next, I created the Fall Leaf Wreath by die-cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock and adding watercolor in several shades of yellows, oranges, greens, and reds.

Once both of the panels were dry, I began adhering the elements to an A2-sized card base. Lastly, I added a white heat embossed sentiment die cut with a wavy banner die.

Morgan's Art World Fantasy Fae 18

 

Good morning crafty friends! It’s the beginning of a new month and the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends begins with a new challenge. This month, Team A is sponsored by the talented Morgan Fitzsimons from Creative Art Design Studio. For my project, I used a lovely image called Fantasy Fae 18.

To begin my card, I printed the image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock and again on copy paper to create a mask. I simply fussy cut the image and add temporary adhesive to the back. I like to use Zig Two-Way Glue Fine Tip. It is permanent when it is wet, but it dries the adhesive is temporary.

Next, I added my mask and ink blended the background. I began with Tumbled Glass closest to the image, then Blueprint Sketch, and finally Chipped Sapphire just at the outer edges of the panel. I added texture to the background with diluted acrylic white paint. And finally, I colored in the main image with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combination

Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000
Hair: E49, E29, E27, E25, E23
Feathers: RV17, RV55, RV52
Shirt: G21, YG61, G40
Flower: RV09, RV55, RV52, Y02, Y00

After coloring the image, I used a large stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel to an A2-sized piece. I added the sentiment which I white heat embossed onto the background. And finally, I added a few clear round drops.
