New Fall Stamps with Sunny Studio Stamps

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here again, woot woot!  Today I’m popping in with a card using the newer Sunny Studio Stamp set called Pretty Pumpkins, and this set is pretty!  I love layered stamps and Sunny Studio Stamps creates some of the best ones.  The dimension is incredible!  I also love to give them a watercolored look, and these stamps really make it look hand done check it out…

Aren’t they so cool?  With this set you can achieve some clear and crisp dimension if you use just your inks, but with the Clean Color Real Brush Markers I was able to achieve the more blended and watercolor look that I was looking for.  Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers used include:052, 023, 070, 061, 066,072, 036, 047,048.  I also have to thank my MISTI for making these images so easy to stamp.  To start I would color directly onto the stamps first and stamp them several times.  Then I could go over the ink with a water brush to smooth the color out.  For the darkest layer I chose to keep the lines more crisp and only went over them very lightly with my water brush.  For a more dimensional scene I used masking for the largest pumpkin and stamped the other two pumpkins in the background.

I then used colored in my own ground and a touch of a blue sky.  To finish the stamped panel I added a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Giving Thanks set with Memento Ink, and die cut the whole thing with Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Rectangle Dies.

With layers of patterned paper, enamel dots and twine my card was complete!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and Happy Crafting!

Glimmer Paste on Dark Cardstock

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Hi!  It is Lisa here today and I am sharing what I think is a scrumptious and pretty card!  I was so excited with the way the glimmer paste by Nuvo shows on dark cardstock, that I seriously want to cover everything with this stuff! Take a peek at how I mixed this paste with lots of Altenew goodies…

To create this card I started by going over the Altenew Stencil: Sketched Lines on black cardstock with the Glimmer Paste.  I then set this off to the side and stamped and embossed my sentiment from the Altenew Beautiful Quotes Stamp Set in gold.  Next, I stamped flowers onto watercolor cardstock from the Wild Hibiscus Stamp Set.  To watercolor the flowers I used a mix of Distress Markers and Distress Oxide Ink.  I decided to fussy cut them out and added some Nuvo Drops to the centers.

Finally, I layered all of these up onto my cardbase.  Isn’t it just so pretty?!  Sometimes you just can’t help but feel excited when an idea turns out just as you were hoping.  I hope to see you share some of your new creations with us in our latest challenge featuring Christmas in July!

Happy Crafting!

A Clean and Simple Watercolor Featuring Tombow Markers

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you all today and I have a very clean and simple card to share with you today that incorporates layered stamping with watercoloring.  Most often layered stamps are used for their crisp lines and well obvious layers.  When you add watercoloring to these images it tends to soften layers, and depending on how much water you add it can even mix the layers more than desired.  For my card I chose to stamp the images using my Tombow Markers instead of ink pads, and this allowed me to have a little more control of how and where any blending would occur once I added clean water…

To create this card I first started with the stems of the flowers.  I loved that by using the markers I was able to achieve a two toned look without much effort.  I then went in with a brush and clean water to blend and smooth out the colors.  Next came the leaves, and finally the flowers on top.  For each of these I went back over each layer with a brush and clean water, making sure that the first layer was completely dry before adding my next.

The Timless Tulips by Sunny Studio also had the perfect sentiment for my card so I stamped it with Versafine ink.  I finished the card off with Distress Ink in Tumbled glass to give it a soft blue background.  To tie in the watercolor look I added a few drops of water to the background and blotted them off.

If watercoloring seems too “messy” or “uncontrollable” for your tastes then using markers such as Tombow is a fantastic option for you!  I can’t wait to see what you create with this technique, and feel free to add it to our latest challenge, where we are asking you to watercolor people or animals.

Happy Crafting!

Watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a Hello card that features one of the My Favorite Things Background Stamp Sets and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  These markers are fabulous for coloring and watercoloring, and I find the colors to be so vibrant just take a peek…

This background stamp set is called Floral Fantasy, and it is exactly that!  I love all of the details and zen tangle look to it!  For my card I opted to color everything but the flowers.  Kind of backwards, huh? hehehe!  I thought it might be fun to make all of the background images front and center, and I do love the way it turned out.  Here is a look at what it first looked like before I trimmed the image down for the needs of my card…

For my sentiment I decided to die cut the hello from Lawn Fawn three times, adhering them all together and adding some sparkle to the top layer with a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

I then finished my card off with a few layers of cardstock panels and some Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
