Alex Syberia Design Coloring Therapy

Hello Crafty Friends! Thanks for stopping by today to check out my project for the new July release from the awesome Alex Syberia! Lots of fun things in this release, and of course, some beautiful flowers for your coloring pleasure! To celebrate Alex’s new release, we are having a super fun Instagram Hop, with a chance to win a $20 gift certificate for her shop! You can check out her Instagram or my Instagram for all the details! For today’s project, I’m featuring the Coloring Therapy A2 Panel, so let’s get started!

I began by printing the image on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock. When I printed the image, I did adjust the opacity down to about 30%. By doing this, you can get somewhat of a no-line look, especially when watercoloring. I then got busy coloring. I started with the purples, and thought that I was going to color the whole thing purple to resemble grapes, but then decided that it might be cool to do rainbow colors instead.

The Copic Markers that I used were BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV04, BV23, BV29, Y00, Y06, Y08, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, RV00, RV02, RV11, RV32, R85, YR23, YR24, YG11, YG13, YG17, BG000, BG01 and BG02. Goodness gracious, that’s a lot of markers, right!?!? Anyhoo, once everything was colored, I used the PinkFresh Studio Diagonal Stitched Rectangles to trim the panel.

I also used a Copic Multiliner 0.3 to add back the black dots on the “berries” as they got lost during the coloring process. I opted for a Thanks sentiment using the Concord and 9th Scripted Thanks die cut. I cut it three times from black cardstock and adhered those together using liquid glue. I also cut the SSS Etched Dragonfly from black cardstock.

I adhered the sentiment and the dragonfly to the colored panel using glue, and adhered the panel to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb, using foam tape for dimension. To finish up the project, I added some Soft Snowfall Pearls from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards. I thought the softness of them added a nice little touch!

I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope you found some inspiration to get crafty in your space! Head on over to Alex’s Etsy shop to check out the full release! You don’t want to miss it. Stay awesome sweet friend!

Simon Says Stamp Thank You Gold Fading Hearts

Hello there crafty friends! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your day! I’m still playing with goodies from the new Rainbows release from Simon Says Stamp! The Fading Hearts Stencil is one of my favorites from this release, so let’s jump right in!

I always tend towards white cardstock, but decided to mix it up with this project by using kraft cardstock instead. I began this mini slimline card by cutting a panel of kraft and adhering my stencil to it using masking tape. I then used ThermoWeb Deco Foil Transfer Gel to get a good layer on my cardstock before removing the stencil. Don’t forget to wash your tools right away, so as not to ruin them. Did I sound like your mom there? I let the panel dry for a few hours while I continued to figure out my sentiment.

Once my panel was ready, I used Tonic Studios Nuvo Gold Gilding Flakes on the hearts. I just put some flakes on and rubbed them around with my finger until all of the hearts were covered, beautiful and shiny! I decided on some SSS Sentiment Strips to adorn this card, so I trimmed those down and adhered them to my panel using 3M Foam Tape. I also found a cute, black heart in my sticker stash to add as well.

I adhered my kraft panel to a larger black panel, because I love that contrast. I then adhered those to my card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock.

That does it! Super duper simple card with lots of shiny impact! Don’t forget to check out the new SSS Rainbows release! Lots of pretty things!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and don’t forget to stay awesome!
