Card Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! It's my day to post at Stamp AnnieThing and I have a fun card to share. I used the Julie-Ahoy Matey stamp set for my challenge card. The theme for this challenge is a card sketch.

I decided to create a scene card inspired from the card sketch and man did I have a lot of fun creating this one. I created the ships wheel and the railing on my Silhouette Cameo. I really enjoyed creating these original elements for my card using my Silhouette. I did some ink blending with my Distress Inks on some Tim Holtz woodgrain card stock to create this ships deck. I also ink blended the background to set me scene as if Julie is sailing at dusk.I coloured Julie image with my Copic Markers and popped her up with some foam tape.

I hope you enjoyed my card!

Until next time - Stephen

Hi and welcome to Day #1 of 
Stamp Anniething's August Release!
This release is ALL ABOUT THE BOYS!!

Zac will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show you  this week!!

Hi Friends! Its hard to believe that is August already, I can't believe how fast the Summer has flown by. On the bright side, ITS RELEASE WEEK at Stamp AnnieThing!! I am so excited to share my card creations over the next few days.

I wanted to create a bright, fun, and cheerful card using the super cute Zac - Technology stamp set. I found some patterned paper from a MFT paper pad and pulled my colour pallet from that. I used my Distress Inks to ink blend a rainbow and framed it using a mirrored paper diecut using the Single Stitch Line Rounded Square Frames by MFT (thats a mouth full). I also added some Nuvo drops in various colours for a fun extra touch. I stamped all the word bubbles and abbreviations and cut them out with my Scan n' Cut.

I coloured Zac with my Copics using the following colours. 

Skin - E15, E13, E31, E30, E95, E04
Hair - E49, E47, E44, E43

Wedding card featuring Stamp AnnieThing stamps

It's my turn to share over on the Stamp Anniething Blog today!
I've made a sweet Wedding card with a shaker element featuring two stamps from the May Stamp AnnieThing Release - Eloise Congratulations and Tommy Way to Go 
I kept my colour pallet and card design more simple to allow the focus to remain on Eloise and Tommy.
I started with a A2 sized card front and adhered a diagonal stripped pattern paper to the left hand side. I then Die cut out the window using the Stitched Dome Frames from MFT. I used the same die and cut out another frame but this time out a white glitter paper. I adhered a piece of clear acetate on the backside of the card front and then glued the glitter frame I cut out on the front. I popped my card front up with a double layer of foam tape onto another piece of card stock that I ink blended some Victorian Velvet Distress Ink on. I filled the card with a bunch of coordinating sequins, prills, and beads. 
I coloured Eloise and Tommy with my Copic markers and then adhered them to my card front. I stamped the sentiment that came with Eloise on a a thin piece of paper that I cut into a banner shape. To finish off my card, I added some Nuvo drops around then sentient in the colour Silver Linings. 

I hope you like my card creation!

Until Next Time - Stephen

Kraftin' Kimmie - Let them Eat Cupcakes pt 2

Happy Wednesday friends! As you know I created a card that I shared with you on Monday that used the "Let them Eat Cupcakes" stamp set from Kraftin' Kimmie stamps. I loved the stamp set so much that I coloured all the images in the set and ended up creating two very different cards, the second which I am sharing with you today.

I coloured her using my Copic markers with the following colours
Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00, E50, E93
Hair - E47, E44, YR27, YR23, YR21
Vest/Headband - R39, R37, R35, R32
Shirt/Shoes - BG49, BG45
Pants - T10, T8, T6, T4

To create the background, I used the Triangle Turnabout background stamp by Concord & 9th. If you haven't seen this unique stamp in action, check out the video here 

I used the "Happy" die cut from the "Happy Greetings" die set from MFT and popped it up with fun foam to give it added dimension  For some added detail, I used some clear Nuvo crystal drops overtop of the letters to add some extra shine. I then cut out the "Sentiment Label Strip" die cut and adhered the word "Happy" to it and then stamped "Birthday" underneath. I think it adds a fun touch to the card yet doesn't take away from the image I coloured. 

I hope you like todays card!

Until next time - Stephen

Kraftin' Kimmie - Let Them Eat Cupcakes

So I'm just going be upfront with you all and let you know that you're gonna' be seeing lots of cards using Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps in the future. I have recently become obsessed with their unique designs and man, oh man, are they challenging yet, oh so fun to colour.

For todays card, I am using stamps from the "Let Them Eat Cupcakes set"

As always I stamped my images on Hammermill 100lb card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with my much loved Copic Markers using the following colours.

Skin - E04, E11, E21, E00, E50, E93
Hair/Muffins - E59, E57, E55, E53
Pants/Headband - RV29, RV25, RV23, RV21
Shirt- Y17, Y15, Y11, Y13, Y11
Apron - YG09, YG07, YG06, YG05, YG01

I kept the layout of my card pretty simple as I wanted the focus to be on my image that I had so much fun (and time spent) colouring. I used the scallop die and fishtail banner die from the Blueprints 27 set from MFT to create the majority of my card layout. I added some striped patterned paper for some added interest and as well I used a stitched circle die to help ground my image. I coloured 4 strips of white Hammermill paper in Green, Yellow and Pink Copic markers and glued them overtop of the patterned paper to tie in all the colours. 

I am pretty pleased with the results of this card, as it is a different card style then I'm accustomed too. I ended up loving this stamp set so much that I actually made a second card with it; I'll be sharing that fun card with you Wednesday. 

Until next time - Stephen
