Hey, everyone! It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for another Saturday Stamp Day card and video. In this week’s video, I’m making a pastel ice cream cart card (ha!) with the Served Up stamp set from Create A Smile Stamps. This stamp set is simply adorable and I love how many options there are with the different sundaes, cupcakes, coffee and other delicious goodies.
You probably know by now that I’m trying to improve my Copic coloring skills. That’s why I have been coloring more and more in my recent videos. I wanted to mention that Kit and Clowder offers a free mini online class on the basis of coloring with markers. You can check it out by clicking HERE. I signed up for it, but I still have to check out the classroom. The description looks really nice so I’m looking forward to learning new things!
I started out by stamping the ice cream cart and hippo image on Copic friendly card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Like I mentioned in the video, I used the Mini MISTI tool to stamp the image but you could also use a regular acrylic block. I did some simple Copic coloring with soft hues.
Since the image is quite large already, I didn’t really need to add a bunch more to my card after coloring. I did adhere a small strip of patterned paper from the Sorbet Collection from Avery Elle. Don’t you just love the fact that the name of this paper pad collection matches with the whole ice cream feeling to this card? 🙂 I created my own colored card stock with a BG11 Copic marker.
My Versamark ink pad is all dried up so I needed to get a new one. This time I used the Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad from Wow. You all know how much I adore Wow products (I’ve been using their products for years!), so obviously I think this pad is brilliant. I embossed my sentiment with my favorite white embossing powder from Wow. Finally, I finished off my card with a little bit of shimmer and shine. Because that’s my favorite way to end a video, ha! 🙂
That’s it for now. Thank you so much for watching my video and for reading my post. See you soon! Xo
