Hello

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Videos

Hello everyone.. it’s Holly here today with another watercolor card and process video. I’m using the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely  set and some Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

I started by stamping the flower image onto a piece of watercolor paper and then I heat embossed it using some White embossing powder. Then I taped the image panel to a board using some painter’s tape. I added some clear water around the image and then I dropped in some Light Blue using a wet paintbrush. This is the wet on wet technique. Then I heat set the area with my heat tool. I repeated the same process with the rest of the image. Adding in color within each embossed area and drying in between layers.

Once the image was dry I trimmed the panel to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and added it to a top folding Black card base. I stamped Hello from the same set and heat embossed it onto a piece of Black card stock using White embossing powder and trimmed it out with my large scissors. I adhered it to the image with some foam tape. This is a great image to practice watercolor with, it has lots of great large images and it can be embossed.

You can see more details on how I created this in the video below…

Most Beautiful Day: Negative Space Coloring

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you today and I am so excited to share a card I’ve created with the new Concord & 9th Stamp Set: Hello Lovely

Now I’m not sure if the technique of color on the outside of the image has a technical term, but I call it Negative Space Coloring.  To create this card I started by stamping my image onto Neenah Solar White Card stock with Memento Ink and my MISTI tool.  I wanted a really nice dark black color to the image so I inked it up and re-stamped it several times, hence the use of my MISTI.  Next came the decision to color the outside of the image rather than the image itself.  I have seen this done several times by other crafters, but I myself have never tried it.  Let me tell you… I LOVE it!  I think it really made the image itself pop.  Comic colors I used include: BV0000, BV01, BV02, BV04.

Since the floral image is rather large I decided to add my sentiment over top of it.  I also didn’t want to cover the image up so I used a strip of vellum to stamp and emboss my sentiment before adhering it around the sides and onto the back of my paneling.  This sentiment comes from the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set.

Adding details with copics!

Written by Jessica Frost. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Good morning, Jess here!  I wanted to create a CAS card using primarily stamping with ink pads but with a little extra details from copic markers and I’m really pleased with how it turned out.  Concord & 9th is one of the newest companies that MarkerPop is carrying and I wanted to show you how easy it is to create a bunch of really pretty cards with nothing but a handful of ink pads and copics!

That little bit of copic shading at the base of each bottle tree really adds depth to the card!  So I started by stamping the trees from Concord & 9th’s O Christmas Tree across my card base using a variety of dye inks.  I also used my MISTI to make sure my trees lined up correctly.

Next I added shading using two copic markers for each tree.  I left the color lighter in the middle of the curve to give it a little depth.  Then I added clear spectrum noir sparkle and trimmed the panel down to 4″ by 5.25″.  Once it dried I prepped it with my powder tool and then stamped the sentiment across the card with versamark before  I heat-embossing it with gold embossing powder.  Finally I covered the edge of another piece of white cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder to create a frame.  I adhered the tree panel to the gold frame and that was it!

These would be fun and easy cards to mass produce for a holiday card.  You could use different color palettes or do an ombre look using varying shades of one color.  Thanks so much for stopping by today and have a wonderful day.
