CARD DETAILS

Can you believe I left white space on my card today? I know, weird right?

I started by stamping my image from Moon Magic onto Arches Cold Press Watercolor card stock with Embossing Ink. I heat embossed the image with Gold Embossing Powder.

Next, I used the same technique that I did in my video from Monday (click HERE to check out the video watercoloring with Zig Markers) to watercolor my image with Zig Markers.

Once my image was dry, I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

On a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock 110 lb., I stamped the large image from Grateful Heart stamp set using Black Ink. I added my Lunar Moth with foam squares for dimension.

All of the sentiments are so beautiful on the Moon Magic stamp set. I stamped one of them onto Black card stock with embossing ink. Then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I attached my sentiment straight to my card front with a tape runner.

To finish off the card I added a few of the Like Magic sequins using liquid glue and topped them off with Cloud 9 Nuvo Dream Drops.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Even though I love a dramatic background, I do love how this came out.

I water colored my image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Unfortunately, I did not write down my colors as I was kind of in an experimental mood.

I die cut my image using the coordinating dies and attached to the front of my panel with black foam squares.

To finish off the card, I attached the re-released Like Magic Sequins mix around my image using Lawn Fawn Liquid glue. I topped off the sequins with Nuvo Cloud 9 Dream Drops which leave them looking like little pearls!

VIDEO

I have a video to share today doing a quick walk through of the new release and creating a card start to finish. You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

CARD DETAILS

We are going to be creating some magic today with this new set. My image from the Moon Magic stamp set is stamped in embossing ink onto Arches Cold Press Watercolor card stock using my Misti Stamping Tool. Then heat embossed with Champagne Embossing Powder.

I water colored my image using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. For this card shown, I am using No.031 Cobalt Blue, No.032 Persian Blue, No. 084 Deep Violet and No. 902 Natural Gray. To do the watercoloring I’ll be using a Royal & Langnickel Zen No. 3 brush.

For my background, I ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink onto Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock using blending brushes. I’m doing my ink blending on a Waffle Flower Media Mat which is Silicone mat and helps my paper stay in place.

After ink blending, I flicked on some watered down White Glimmer Metallic Ink from Hero Arts using a paint brush.

My sentiment is from the Moon Magic stamp set as well. I heat embossed it using Champagne Embossing Powder onto Pitch Black card stock and trimmed down.

Now you’ll notice I have two cards here. The one in front is the one I created in the video. The one in the background is my original version where I had used the Deep Purple for contrast. While I was coloring my image for the second time in the video, I decided to skip the purple and just deepen the blue with the Persian Blue.

This is the beauty of water coloring is nothing will ever come out exactly the same. They are very similar and while my husband couldn’t really tell the difference, I could.

I finished off my cards by adding the NEW Like Magic sequins mix with Lawn Fawn liquid glue. Then I topped off the sequins with Nuvo Dream Dots in Cloud 9 which almost look like pearls once dry.

I can’t wait to share what else I’ve been working on!

Remember, this release is available NOW! I’ll have more inspiration to share over the week but don’t miss out on this release because I have a feeling it will fly off the shelves! (see what I did there?! )

Neat & Tangled Stamptember Exclusive!

Welcome everyone! I’m so excited to share with you the exclusive stamp set from Neat & Tangled for Stamptember! It is breath-taking!

Remember, this is an exclusive stamp set only sold at Simon Says Stamp and only while supplies last! Once it’s gone – it’s gone!

Shopping links will be provided down below.

I have two cards to share with you today because I was really enjoying coloring this image. This is the Beautiful as You stamp set. It is a 4″ x 6″ stamp set with a partial floral image with a line border. It also comes with a solid line and 5 lovely sentiments.

I stamped my floral image onto Arches Cold Press Watercolor card stock with Embossing Ink. Using the Misti tool, I stamped it three times to make sure I had a solid impression since this is a textured card stock. Then I heat set Champagne Embossing Powder.

I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to water color the image. The colors I used are No. 260 Deep Red, No. 080 Violet and No. 047 May Green.

I stamped the sentiment onto Black card stock with Embossing Ink. Then heat set with Champagne Embossing Powder to match my image. I trimmed my sentiment into a thin strip, adding a little slant to one end.

I then attached my sentiment to the front of the card with foam tape.

My next card is very similar but in a different orientation. I stamped and heat embossing the same as above.

I still used my Zig markers to watercolor. The colors I used were No. 061 Light Brown, No. 052 Bright Yellow, No. 260 Deep Red, No. 080 Violet, and No. 047 May Green.

To be completely honest, I stamped the image crooked on my card stock but didn’t notice until after I finished coloring. To save my hard work, I decided to hide the stamped line with a sentiment.

This sentiment also comes from the Beautiful as You stamp set. I stamped it in Embossing Ink on Black card stock. Then heat embossed with Champagne Embossing Powder.

I trimmed the sentiment down to a thin strip to match the size of my A2 size card front. Then attached the sentiment with foam tape. I was pretty happy with this save since I put so much work into the coloring.

I hope you enjoyed today’s cards.

Be sure to head over to Simon Says Stamp to pick up your Exclusive stamp set!

Gina K Designs September Release Part 3

Welcome back everyone! Today I’m sharing more inspiration from the Gina K Designs September Release.

I’m starting with the gorgeous Majestic Peony stamp set. This large flower takes up almost the entire front of an A2 size card and is so fun to color!

I stamped my image onto Arches Coldpress Watercolor paper using Gina K Designs Embossing Ink. Then I sprinkled on Silver Embossing Powder and heat set.

After my image was cool, I started to color using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a paint brush. I used the colors, No. 050 Yellow, No.024 Wine Red, No.004 Fl. Green, No.041 Light Green, No.036 Light Blue, No.031 Cobalt Blue and No.034 Dull Blue.

Once my panel was dry, I trimmed down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a piece of craft foam to help flatten my panel. I attached my colored panel to an A2 size card base made from white card stock. My sentiment, which comes from the Happy Fall stamp set, is stamped on white card stock with Obsidian Ink

For my next couple of cards I’ll be using stamp sets from the Autumn Splendor card kit. This kit is currently sold out but if you ordered it, I hope this brings you some inspiration. If you missed out, the stamp sets will be sold individually in October.

On a piece of white card stock, I started by stamping my sentiment from the Layered Leaf Prints stamp set. I thought it was best to have that stamped first so I knew how far to go in with my leaf images.

Using the comfort blocks, I went around the entire edge of the card adding my leaf prints. I used a variety of non-traditional Fall colors including, Lovely Lavender, Edible Eggplant, Key Lime, Fresh Asparagus, Innocent Pink, Tomato Soup, Sea Glass, and Tranquil Teal.

Very clean and simple card yet so much fun especially when changing up colors.

My last card is featuring the Colossal Cone Flower stamp set from the Autumn Splendor kit. On a piece of Turquoise Sea card stock, I randomly stamped my flower image with a comfort block and Embossing Ink. Then I sprinkled on Clear Embossing Powder and heat set.

It’s fun creating your own backgrounds especially subtle ones like this.

I trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a piece of craft foam for dimension. Then I added the panel to an A2 size notecard made from white card stock.

The sentiment is from the Mini Sunshine stamp set. I stamped this tiny greeting in Embossing Ink onto Black Onyx card stock, sprinkled on Champagne Embossing Powder and heat set.

I trimmed the sentiment down to a thin strip and attached to my card front with foam squares.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. I have all my supplies listed down below
