Posts Tagged ‘Prismacolor Pencils’


It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast (FS563) so a big Congrats to Helen, the newest Featured Stamper! She has a really sweet gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really liked the color combo & mixed media look of the background so I kept those, but I used different images, a different layout & made mine a Christmas card.

To make my card, The strip in the middle is actually part of a large tag I made w/ Distress inks & a little platinum Brilliance for some sparkle. The aqua & lime sparkle layers were die cut w/ curved dies & the largest lime sparkle was embossed on both ends. Though the small manger image was meant to be a postage frame, I wanted to use it on my card so I added the large star from the wisemen image in the center of the postage frame. For the rest of the wisemen, I stamped them on the aqua layer & added some white Prismacolor pencil highlights.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used on small nativity image.


Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs – Jesus Heart Postage, Three Wisemen, (inside: Simplify Christmas Greeting)
Paper: X-Press It white, lime sparkle, aqua, manilla tag
Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versafine onyx, Distress inks in twisted citron, tumbled glass, peacock feathers, evergreen bough, Brilliance platinum planet
Accessories:  Copic markers, Spellbinders rectangles, curved borders dies, Sizzix embossing folder (Snowflakes & Flourish set), white Prismacolor pencil

And since it’s almost Thanksgiving, I also cased THIS card of Helen’s. I kept most of the layout, but used different colors, different images & turned mine horizontal.

This card was pretty quick & easy. I had a Wrinkle Free Distress background I made a while back that I stamped the leaves onto & fussy cut. The white rectangle with cut out hole was leftover from another project so I added the brown & gold layers then the greeting on a little word window tag.

Supplies:

Stamps: DRS Designs –  Open Leaf, Fall Leaf w/ Acorn, Happy Thanksgiving
Paper: Staples 110# white, watercolor, brown textured, harvest gold
Ink: Versafine vintage sepia,  Distress inks rusty hinge, mustard seed, spiced marmalade
Accessories:  Spellbinder A2 matting basics A & B dies, Quickutz nesting ovals, sequins

Thanks so much for stopping by!

You have through Sunday Aug 20 to leave comments on the blogs for a chance to win. Mary will announce a winner on Aug 21 on her Blog.  Each month a different image is 50% off. This month- it’s the Airplane! On the first & third Wednesdays of every month., we’ll be celebrating with a Blog Hop!

For my Airplane card, I did the opposite of what I usually do, I picked out the papers first then colored my scene to go with them. I cut the piece of designer paper w/ the text & put it into my Misti & stamped the Airplane first w/ Memento ink. After coloring it w/ Prismacolor pencils, I stamped over it w/ Versafine to bring the details back then antiqued it a bit by sponging on some antique linen ink & edged it w/ a black marker. The greeting was stamped on a small piece of vellum & I die cut a stitched flag frame to go over it. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT Blogs..it will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

It’s my turn to host the Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Challenge so a big congrats to AJ Bodine (aka rutabagapie)! Her gallery is full of beautifully colored images & fun designs. After much browsing, I chose THIS to case. I liked the image running over onto the circular frame & the flower theme so I kept those, but I used different images, different colors & I used a die cut for the greeting instead of stamping it.

I’ve had this image for awhile & I’ve been wanting to get it out & use it. So today is the day! After coloring,  I smoothed out the blends a little using Prismacolor pencils then I die cut it a couple of times w/ 2 sizes of large ovals.  I didn’t have a pierced oval that large so I did it the old fashioned way…w/ the SU piercing set. The outer frame is actually popped up just a bit from the  rest of the image. Due to the size of the image, there wasn’t a lot of room left for a greeting but I had a die cut that fit in pretty well. I double stacked it, black on white to give it a little depth.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
