This card was so much fun to make! When I got my package of goodies from Faber-Castell, I immediately opened the Gelatos because I have heard so many great things about them. I knew I wanted to make a card using the ”Fleece Navibaa”
stamp set. Looking at my new Gelatos, I thought it would be fun to make this little guy a Super Ewe! I took strips of 1/4 inch paper and colored them with the Gelatos on both sides of the paper. I used a wet paintbrush to even out the colors which also brought out the shine of the pigment in them. Really pretty! I then curled the paper so you could see the underside colors and so it would give fun movement to the flying ewe!
I then colored the sheep using the Faber-Castell watercolor pencils. The grey selection was perfect as their were three shades to choose from.
If you haven’t seen the other two artist’s blogs today, go and hop on over to Faber-Castell to comment all week!
Hi everyone! I am stopping by the blog today to show you a really great way to make a huge impact on a card and you don’t even have to be good at coloring!
My favorite thing to do as of late is to use my gold embossing powder, but not in just any way, in a bold way. I love the look of foiled paper, and this is a great and easy way to achieve the same rich look. First, start with a neutral, but colored card stock. For this card I went with the Gina K. “Moonlit Fog” card stock. I then gold embossed a flower form the Bold Blooms stamp set.
I then colored it using only ONE copic marker. The number I used was V09. I love how rich it looks. For the inside of the flower I randomly colored some of the leaves and left some open.
This gives a nice effect. I finished the card off with a background element from the Bold Blooms stamp set as well as a sentiment from the Poster Board Sentiments stamp set.
The Design Team for Gina K. Designs welcomes you to another fabulous Inspiration Blog Hop! Gina and the Design Team will inspire you with many beautiful ideas! And as you hop through their blogs, make sure to leave a comment on each of them because we will choose a few random comments and those stampers will each win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! To see the full list of winners check the Big News forum at Stamp TV a few days after the hops.
My first card today is using the new Free with Three set, “A Little Something”.
Keeping it simple and light, I made a birthday card using black onyx ink and some sequins. This is great because it can be made so quickly and yet look like a million bucks!
Throw some of those sequins in your envelope, and you will give your recipient a little surprise party
My next card is using the new Green Thumb Diva mini stamp set. I totally love how this sweet card came out!
I colored the diva in with copics, but then paper pieced her pants to match my accent card stock which I stitched down the sides using my sewing machine. This is a nice idea because you are just bring a little bit of the background accents into the foreground. I grounded that gingham paper by using it to set off my sentiment as well, which then brought the gingham in three times, which is what you want to strive for in good design. I also brought it into the front of my envelope I made.
I kept her colors as close to the patterned paper colors as possible. I shaded her in a light violet. Remember, shade has color!
I also finished off the back of my envelope I made with my Kreate-a-Lope envelope maker and glue. Notice the stitching detail I brought into the strip. Before you adhere the strip, just run it on the sewing machine. This now ties in with the card front!
Hope you enjoyed the inspiration today! Go check out the other designers!
