Floral Garden Thank You Friendship Card | Studio Katia


Floral Garden Thank You Friendship Card for Studio Katia by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Hello sweet friends!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer, I am on the Studio Katia Blog today with this beautiful Floral Garden Thank You Friendship Card. This card makes me think of the beautiful flowers of the season.

CARD DETAILS

I began this card by stamping out the image from the FLORAL GARDEN set onto Neenah paper and colored them in using Copic markers.

Once the panel was all colored in I used the frame from the SCALLOP HEARTS COVER to die cut the panel. I then die cut the word thanks from the center of the floral design using the thanks die from the A CUP OF THANKS DIES. I also die cut 3 more thanks dies using black cardstock that I stacked and glued together and then glued it back in place in the center of the panel and added the finished colored layer to the top.

To make the thanks Sparkle, I added a layer of Liquid Pixie Dust and once that was dry I added glossy accents to the top.

To finish off the card I stamped "my friend" from the ALOHA onto black cardstock and heat set it with white embossing powder. I also added some Majestic Fusion Sequins for some added sparkle.

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹

Believe In You Release | Sunflower Cards | Simon Say Stamp

Believe In You Release | Sunflower Cards for Simon Say Stamp by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Yay! The Believe In You Release is now live on Simon Say Stamp!

I'm not sure about you all but I love sunflowers, and I was super excited to see that Simon Say Stamps sent me the Sunflower Frame Die from the release to play with. Thank you Simon Says StampπŸŒ»πŸ’

CARD DETAILS

For this first card, I die cut and stacked the Sunflower Frame 5 times, stacked and glued them all together. To the top flower, I cut it out of the frame and watercolored it and let it dry completely before gluing it back in place.

It is difficult to see from the brightened pictures, but I added some score lines to the card panel before gluing the frame in place.

The sentiment I used comes from the Fresh Bloom SENTIMENT STRIPS. I then finished the card by adding glossy accents to the center of the flower and then adding some sequins.

For this next card, I die cut 6 Sunflower Frames out and separated the flower from the frame. To keep all the little pieces of the flower petals together I added some tape behind the flower heads. I then used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers to watercolor them in.

To the background, I blended out Salty Ocean Distress around the edges and then spritzed the panel with water and lifted some of the ink with a paper towel. I then stamped the sentiment from the BIG SCRIPTY GREETINGS using Blackout Ink in the center.

To finish I arranged the Sunflowers as seen and glued them in place. Anything that was hanging off the edge of the card was snipped and then glued back onto the edges to fill in any space. I also added some sequins and white gel pen detail to the flowers.

Repeat Stamping and Coloring with Pencils on Kraft | Honey Bee Stamps


Repeat Stamping and Coloring with Pencils on Kraft for Honey Bee Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

OMG, you guys this picture makes me so happy! The colors, the images, but most of all happy because I think have overcome my fear of coloring with pencils, and that's what excites me the most!


CARD DETAILS

If you all have been following my coloring on Instagram for Kathy Racoosin's Daily Marker Challenge you would have seen some sneak peeks of the cupcake card as I posted a speed coloring video of the process. I had so much fun practicing and was loving the results that I had to make some more.

So here is the cupcake yumminess card that started my new love of pencils, and by the way, I used Prismacolor Pencils for all my cards today. For this card, I stamped out the cupcake and the cherries from the PIECE OF CAKE stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and a stamping Block for quick stamping.  To color the images in I began by laying down the darkest color first and then the white highlight area then layered on a lighter color to blend out the two. I then repeated the steps to add more pigment. Once there is enough wax left behind from the pencils the wax begins to blend quite nicely with a little more pressure. I used medium pressure for the first layers and then would end with harder pressure. I am by no means an expert and consider myself a beginner but I did like the result I achieved.

To make these images pop even further, I went back over all the black lines with a very sharp tip using the black Prismacolor pencil.

To finish off this card I stamped out the sentiment below from the ONE OF A KIND set and die cut it using the coordinating ONE OF A KIND Honey Cut set.

I couldn't resist using the cutest Bee's, from the HAPPY FALL Y'ALL set for my next card. Here again, I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and stamped out all the images using a stamping block and then again repeated the same coloring process as above starting with the darkest color and then ending with the lightest. I used the same principles as I would if I was using alcohol markers, the only thing that is different was laying down the white highlight first as I was working with Kraft paper instead of a white paper. To make these really pop once again I went back over the lines with a very sharpened black pencil.

Just to give you an idea of how long it took, each full-sized bodied bee took about 10 mins to color. So needless to say, this card took a couple of days and a few sessions to complete as I didn't have the time to do it all in one sitting. But just look at how cute it turned out!!!

For the sentiment, I used the Happy Beeday greeting from the HI HONEY stamp set and then used the HI HONEY Coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut them out.

For this last card, I pulled out the SHINE ON set, one of my favorite girlie Honey Bee Stamp sets. Again using the same techniques mentioned above. This time to make coloring quicker and because I had learned some things from the previous cards, I first laid down the white pencil highlight layer to all the areas I wanted to highlight and then added the other colors.

The Sparkle On sentiment comes from the SHINE ON set, and the "your birthday" comes from the WISH set.

I hope these cards inspire you to pull out your pencils and play with them as mine had just been collecting dust for the past few years!
