Happy Saturday, everybody! I am so happy to be here again with a new Saturday Stamp Day video. Sometimes, when I don’t feel inspired to make a card, I say to myself: “What would (insert a crafter that inspires me) do?” This time I was wondering what my talented and dear crafty friend Julia would do. Whenever I think about Julia’s creations, I immediately think of her bright colored cards. She likes to use rainbow colors quite often, so that inspired me to do some rainbow coloring, too!
A while ago, I purchased some of the sets from the Winter 2016 Release by Essentials by Ellen. These fun and quirky stamps and dies are designed by the amazingly talented Julie Ebersole. In this video, I am featuring their All Inside and their Up the Happy set to create a bright and happy card!
I stamped and masked off the butterfly stamp from the Up the Happy set multiple times. Then, I went ahead and used my Copic markers to give them a pop of color. My Copic coloring is far from perfect but in the video I share some tips that work best for me. As I mentioned in the video, I didn’t show all of the coloring. I included a guide/list of all the colors that I used for each butterfly. I hope you find that somehow helpful! 🙂
Next, I grabbed the All Inside die cut set and I die cut that adorable bear. After stamping the coordinating stamp, I colored the bear using some light gray Copic markers. Felt is so hot in the card making world right now! It’s becoming a big trend real fast so I decided to use some felt on this project. I had some leftover felt that I used to die cut a heart and I tucked it in the bear’s hands. This was easy since the die is made that way. So cute! Finally, I used some Wink of Stella, Glossy Accents and some sequins to finish off the card.
Here is a list of the Copic markers I used for each butterfly and for the letters of the sentiment (all of these markers are linked in the supply list below):
