It’s time for another SP Color Combo Challenge. This is #144.
Before we get started, DON’T FORGET! We are blog hopping tomorrow. It is going to be epic!

The winner of SPCC#143 is. . .

 

I picked a pretty bright/summery color combo that is also a little bit frilly. I hope you like it!

  Our SP Color Combo rules are simple:
*At least one SP product must be used on your project. Don’t own any of our fabulous stamps or color supplies yet? Well, then head to the store and check us out! Our stamps start at $1.99! We also offer a couple of freebie digital stamps as well so everyone can play along.
*Projects must be NEWLY CREATED just for our challenge (no backlinking & please link to us so we know you are really playing along). 

Here is my sample card:

To make my card:
I found a card on Pinterest that was my inspiration for this card. I pinned this to my Scrappy Awesomeness board on Pinterest.

I used patterned paper from the This and That Graceful paper pad from Echo Park. This was included in a past SP Monthly Kit. June kits are already shipping, but kit club signups are ongoing!

On the flowery layer, I inked around the edges with Ocean Waves Premium Chalk Ink and the Tim Holtz Ink Applicator.

I stamped the flower with the same ink using the Medium Polka Dot Background.

I added a big double bow to the side of the flower and then added a piece of SP Flair from the Flamingo Pink Heart Patterns pack.  In next week’s tutorial, I am going to show you this neat double bow technique. I will probably use this technique again on some future cards. I really like how it turned out.

The sentiment is also stamped in Ocean Waves ink. It is a sentiment from the Swirly Doos stamp set. It is actually a one line sentiment so I cut the sentiment in half to make it two lines.

That’s all I have to share so now it is your turn!! Link up below. One winner will be chosen at random to be showcased on my blog!

Faux Ocean Waves Inking Tutorial

Hi everyone! Today is Tutorial Tuesday and I have an inking tutorial for you! I am having a blast with the new SP Premium Chalk Inks.

For this tutorial, I decided to try my hand at ocean waves using INK! Our new Ocean Waves and Aqua SeaGlass inks are perfect oceany colors so I really wanted to show them off and make some ocean waves with them.

Supplies:
Ink Applicator (a sponge, a Tim Holtz tool etc)
Ocean Waves Premium Chalk Ink
Aqua SeaGlass Premium Chalk Ink
White cardstock
Scrap paper (the thinner the better! I used regular printer paper) + one sheet to protect your work surface.

STEPS:
Rip some scrap paper into long strips. You want a rough looking edge to use as your mask.

Place your white paper onto another piece of scrap paper and lay down one of your ripped pieces about 1 inch or so up from the bottom edge of your white card stock.

Ink up your inking tool & start inking up the section of white cardstock that is showing.  I added mostly Aqua SeaGlass with just a bit of Ocean Waves.  In the photo below, you can see that I used different ink on each end of my tool so that I didn’t mix the inks on my ink pads.

Once you are done inking up that section. Block off another section using pieces of the ripped scrap paper to block off another section about 1inch thick. Be sure to leave a little bit of white between inked up sections.

To decorate my card, I added a sentiment from the Friends Forever stamp set from the Gill Roberts Collection.

I used the medium die from the Polariod Frames die tool to cut out the shape and then added the cloud patterned paper inside the frame.

Then I added some satin ribbon from my stash and an Aqua SeaGlass button. And that was it. I really wanted the background to shine through so I didn’t decorate the card very much.

And that’s all for today. Tomorrow will be a new Trends Challenge so I will see you then! Have a great one!!

Thanks a Bunch Card

Hello there! Happy Copic Monday to ya! I don’t have a Copic coloring video for you today, but I do have a fun Copic project to share with ya.

IMG_8489 copy


The image I used on this card is from the Gill Roberts Collection and it is called Girl Picking Flowers & Berries. I thought she was just super cute and I loved that I could play around with fabric pleats. I will HAVE to do a video about this fabric pleating because it is such a fun (and EASY) way to make your Copic images POP off the page.

I used the following Copic colors:

  • For the hair: E57, E35, E97, E99, Y23
  • V12, V15, V25, BV34
  • G29, G28, G46
  • E000, E00, E02, E49, E11, E59
  • R22, R27, R39
  • Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, Y18

I used patterned paper from the The Sweetest Thing -Honey paper pad from My Mind’s Eye.

I also used a sentiment from the Bold Sentiments I stamp set. To finish off the card I added some Lilac twine from The Twinery.

That’s all I’ve got for you today! I don’t use purple and yellow together a lot but I like it together. Do you like Purple & Yellow together?
