VIDEO: Colored Stamping on Kraft

Hello! Today I'm sharing one basic design with three different looks all using the Little Bits and Festive Greetings stamp sets.

The first card features colored stamping on Kraft cardstock. I used to create with Kraft a lot - I mean A LOT. But I have been really into color lately. By using this technique, I can have the best of both worlds!

By stamping the image first in white and then over-stamping the image again in color, I was able to maintain a color more true to the ink.

I really loved this simple design, so I decided to try it in a couple different versions as well.

The gorgeous color combo of Sweet Nectar, Lake House, and Old Gold looks amazing on white.

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and added a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Sequins to dress it up.

Then I wanted to try a more monochromatic color combination.

I added pops of silver and gold along with a little twine to this one.

I think you could use the other images in Little Bits (hearts for love - stars for birthday - sequins for congratulations) and switch out the sentiments for just about any occasion. Talk about versatile!

VIDEO: Snowy Copic Background + a GIVEAWAY

Hello! Today I have a video for you featuring the newly released Merriest Wishes stamp set.

In the video, I go over the color combinations I used and how I colored this sweet little scene. I am not a Copic expert, but I share a few of my tips and tricks for achieving some depth and easy effects, including how to create that snowy background. I just love how it resembles watercolor, but is actually achieved using a Copic marker and some Colorless Blender Solution.
