Hi Everyone! I’m here with a card from the January 2020 Release “Winter Fairies” I also used the “Winter In Pink” 6X6 Paper Pad, the release included “Fairy House” as well! I loved these sweet fairies especially the one sleeping on the moon!
For this first card, I stamped the image on 110lb Neenah Solar White card stock. I am making an A2 size card I used a stitched oval die to cut out a frame for the card. I used a powder blue color card base and cut one of the pieces of pattern paper down to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, so the piece is the size of the card with no borders. I used a stitched oval die to create a frame from the pattern paper. Then I adhered the floral design to the card base and used foam tape to pop up the frame piece and adhered it while lining it up. I stamped the sentiment on the same type of paper and cut the thin strip to about 4 inches and fishtailed the ends. I adhered the sentiment to the card panel toward the bottom leaving some of the frame hole showing on the bottom. I used Crystal Nuvo Drops and some sequins from my stash to finish off the card.
For the second card, I stamped the image on Strathmore Colored Pencil paper, the card is A2 size and I cut the back panel from pattern paper to 4in X 5 1/4in to leave a border from the dusty pink color card base I used. I used a stitched oval die to cut out the image, used “Worn Lipstick” Distress Oxide Ink to give some color just to the outer edge of the oval. Then I cut out an oval the next size up from the same colored pencil paper and layered it behind the oval with the image. I adhered that piece toward the bottom center of the card, stamped a sentiment from the same paper, cut out the strip, fishtailed one end and adhered it to towards the top of the card. I finished off the card by adding some Crystal Nuvo Drops.
For my final card, I stamped the image on Strathmore Colored Pencil paper, the card is A2 size and I cut the back panel from pattern paper to 4in X 5 1/4in to leave a border from the Neenah Solar White card base I used. I then used strips to crisscross measuring 2in X 4 1/4in and 1 3/4in X 5 1/2in. The image I cut down to 2 1/2in X 3 3/4in and adhered it to a rectangle piece measuring 3 1/4 X 4 1/2in. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the image paper and finished it off with some Nuvo Stone Drops.

Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a couple of Christmas cards using the wonderful Great Joy stamp set by Pinkfresh Studio. I love a great wreath stamp and this one is just too cute!
I knew that I wanted to use Kraft card stock with white embossing, but I couldn’t decide if I should color the images in the wreath or not. So, I made two cards!! Let me know in the comments which one you like better. I like both… there’s something about that clean pop of white and then there’s also something about those sweet colored images. I really can’t pick!
I stamped the wreath on the Kraft card stock using my Stamp Platform so that I could easily make two cards. I stamped them with VersaMark watermark ink and then heat embossed them with a fine white embossing powder. I then stamped the bow using a red ink and then I stamped it again with VersaMark watermark ink and heat embossed a fine clear embossing powder. That gives it that pretty shine, but also gives it that touch of color that I wanted. I colored a few of the images in one of the wreaths with a few Prismacolor Pencils. I fussy cut the wreaths and blended on some Forest Moss Distress Oxide inks around the inner and outer edges. I set the wreaths aside to start on the card bases.
I chose the beautiful Christmas Wishes papers by Amy Design to pair up with these cards. I die cut two pieces of the pretty plaid paper with a large stitched rectangle die and adhered them to kraft card bases. I then trimmed two pieces of kraft card stock down to 4-1/4 x 2″. I stamped the sentiments using the Stamp Platform again so that I could stamp with the red ink and then the VersaMark watermark ink. I heat embossed the fine clear embossing powder again to make the sentiments shine.
I then adhered the wide sentiment strips to the card and popped up the wreaths with foam tape. To finish off the cards, I added a few red enamel dots. I just love the touches of red with kraft and white! So… which card do you like better? Leave a comment with your thoughts… I’d love to hear!
Hi Everyone! Luci here from “My Crazy Craft Life” with a card colored with Prisma Colored Pencils on Kraft cardstock and a Penny Black stamp “Tweetie“. I made this CAS card which anyone who knows me, knows I have a hard time with them. I used my stamping tool and Hero Arts Intense Black ink to stamp the image and sentiment because it’s a fairly large image I wanted to make sure I got a good impression. I used Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb. cardstock. Then I colored the image with Prismacolor Premier colored pencils and that’s it! It’s so hard for me to say that! LOL Hey gotta work the things we can right???!!! There’s a video below you can check out.
It’s Desiree here with another design team project for Scrapping for Less! Today I want to show coloring a stamp image using PrismaColor Pencils!
The stamp set I am going to use is called Raccoon Rascals and it is by Newton’s Nook! So, let’s get comfortable and start coloring!
I started my project by stamping my images using a very pale grey dye ink. I wanted to color my image to be a no-line color design.
The paper I chose to use is my Mixed Media Toned Grey by Strathmore. It is perfect for color pencil mediums. Once my image was colored and grabbed my standard A2 size card base in desert storm and stamped another image inside with more sentiments.
I popped my colored panel up using doubled sided foam and we have a fun and cute birthday card for anyone!
I started my project by creating my background using my Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers and Broken China. I used my finger sponge daubers to lay down my color then sprayed my panel with water to get those colors moving. I found some wood grain paper in my stash and cut 1/2 inch strips and layered them at the bottom to create a wood floor.
I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored each image using my Prismacolor Pencils!! They are my favorite medium… Once they were done I fussy cut them out and got them ready to be the center stage on my background!
The sentiment I chose was “Life is a Circus” and used a banner die from my stash.
Set my panel on a standard A2 size side folding card base! We are now ready for the celebration!
