Believe in your strength, Copic coloring with Grace's Little Notes


Hello cardmaking friends. First off, thank you so much for visiting my blogpost! Today I made a clean and simple floral card with lots of masking and Copic Markers.

To begin, I stamped one of the small floral images from the Grace's Little Notes clear stamp set. I then stamped it 3 other times on masking paper and fussy cut them out. I continued stamping, masking each image as I went, until I achieved a bundle of flowers in the lower right hand corner of my card panel.

Once the staping was complete, I die-cut the entire panel with the largest of the Stacked Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then used the You Inspire Me stamp set and stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx blaxk ink. The sentiment reads 'Believe in your strength.'  I added clear embossing powder to it and heat set until a smooth, shiny, raised finish occured. 

Then it was time for the fun part (for me anyways).... coloring!!! I pulled out my Copic markers and decided I wanted to go with pink flowers today. To achieve this corally pink I used a (new-to-me) color combination of RV25, R46, RV21 and R20. Once I liked how the flower petals looked I began coloring the background. I used B00 to trace closely to the stamped flowers. I then blended it out with B000 and B0000 and the 0 colorless blender marker - fading the color as I rose toward the top of the card-front. Lastly, I colored the leaves with only 2 colors, YG03 and YG17.

To finish the card I adhered the stamped and colored panel to a black, Eclipse 100lb., top folding, card base. The Tropical Treasure sequin pack matched my project perfectly, and I added 3 sequins as my finishing touch. I hope you like my pink, floral, believe card and thank you again for taking the time to visit my post. Hugs!!

Spreading Kindess card

Hello everyone, Erica on the blog today!

I don't know about you but I've been quite saddened to see so much hatred, friends attacking friends and general unkindness going around lately. Regardless of your political/religious/personal beliefs I think we can all do better with keeping it a bit civilised and perhaps doing less talking and more actions. With that in mind I made this card with a positive message to send out some positive karma into the world.

















Using an A2 panel cut out from Ranger Ink water colour paper, I dusted it generously with my anti-static tool as I was going to heat emboss the gorgeous Just A Rose stamp set. I started by stamping it in the middle with VersaMark ink and dusting it with white embossing powder, also from Ranger Ink. Using a mask I already had, I stamped it again on both sides to create a rose bush border, before adding and setting the embossing powder with my heat tool.

Using a sentiment from Mama Elephant's 'Butterfly Kisses' I st…
