Floral Card set…

Hello, hi!

I’m back today with one more card set that’s available in the store to show you!  When I created these card fronts, I videoed the process to show you how I colored mine.  Of course, we always want to encourage you to pursue your own unique creativity, but if you are short for time or need some inspiration then you can watch these to see just how I did mine.

The first one I want to show you is this floral design.  The images are stamped on watercolor paper, heat embossed with gold embossing powder and painted with a mix of Prima watercolors and other pan paints like Daniel Smith.

Here is the video that shows how I painted this card front. It’s a video created with HyperLapse, so it’s sped up and without sound.  You’ll notice that I often go in with some intense color, then go back with a clean brush to soak up some of that color.  When that first layer is dry, I go back again with more color to create layers of color.

The next card I’m going to show you is a background stamp.  Sometimes background stamps are little more than a small repeating pattern that doesn’t require any coloring to make it stand out.  But this BG stamp is covered with a variety of florals so I used much the same palette as the card above and just colored in all the flowers, berries, leaves and back ground.

Watch my coloring/painting process here:

The last two cards in the set don’t have process videos made for them, but you will find with ALL of the recently released stamped card fronts that each set includes a color photograph of these card samples for you to refer to. to help your own inspiration.

Critter cards…

Hi friends, I’m popping in today with a quick post to show you another of the card sets that are available in the store for you now.  They are all stamped and waiting for you to color them and make them into cards, similar to what I’m showing you here today.

I used Copic markers to colors these designs.  Copics are alcohol based markers similar to Sharpies, but where Sharpies have 24 different colors, Copics have 355 different colors!  I bet you didn’t even know there WERE 355 different colors!

Lori will be bringing in another line of alcohol-based markers that are very similar to Copics, called Spectrum Noir, and they provide the same beautiful blend-ability at a much friendlier price point.  And don’t forget, you can accomplish the very same kind of shading with colored pencils.  Your kids will give you permission to use theirs without a second thought.  Until they see what you can do with them.  Then they’ll want their pencils back to try some of this magical coloring too!

The stamped designs of these cards is such that you can simply color them up, and adhere them to a card front, or you can crop them and make a more elaborate card with mats, patterned papers and embellishments.  I left mine quite simple here because it’s the style I love best.  Just some coordinating Nuvo drop dots and I’m good.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
