2 Different Styles, Same Supplies - Part 1

Hi guys, this is Emily Cupely! For today's card I used the Brain Freeze and the Neener Neener stamp set. This card is all about a distressed look. Next week's card is going to be the second part which will have a completely opposite look. Can you guess what look will it has? :) Below is the video which shows you how I created it. Enjoy!

Hello! Lisa here with another great back to school card that will have your kid beaming!  I've said it before, but I'll say it again I really love the Express Yourself Stamp Set and the fun backgrounds you can make with it.  This time I mixed all of the letters up and heat embossed them in clear. I then spritzed the watercolor paper with water and dropped some of my Magicals Powder and let them do their thing.  Then I added my die cut panel on top.  Ta-da!

Hi Friends!  Meredith here bringing you a project that I made using three different Alley Way sets called Words To Live By, Little Fellas and All Washed Up.  I did a wild and funky watercolored main image and then layered my papers keeping it cool and neutral.  I created a little heart embellishment by cutting multiple hearts out of my favorite glitter paper and then stitching them together for a layered and dimensional look!

Hi everyone it's Holly here with a fun Flashback card using the cute set Black Beard's Loot! This is great set for all those Pirate fans out there.. or for fun masculine cards! I colored the images in with watercolors and added some gold watercolor to the coins for a bit of shine.

Happy Saturday everyone! Simonne here with a CAS card using several of the stamps from Old School. As soon as I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to make a pac man inspired card as this was my favourite childhood computer game! I took a 148x105mm piece of black cardstock and stamped the little trio of dots from Old School in versamark ink twice, then heat embossed them with white EP.  I stamped the "pac man" and the ghost image onto some of my Copic colouring paper, added the eyes (love that the stamp set comes with 2 different eye options!), coloured them and fussy cut them out. Finally, I added them to the card front using foam pads for dimension.  A very quick and simple card!

Hi everyone it's Holly here with a festive card... featuring the set Cha Cha Cha and some banners from Cake Day! I colored the cactus and banner images with Copics. I fussy cut the banners and added them over the cactus images. 

Hey friends!! Jeni here. I just have to giggle as I see these Old School images!! I have to say that I come from a large game playing family, so this fun sentiment made my heart sing!!! I just love it!! Can't wait to get this one in the mailbox!

Happy Saturday everyone! It's Yuki here with a sweet CAS card featuring the super cute flamingo from "Tropic Topic."

I colored the flamingo with with Copic Markers. I used RV10 and RV11 for the feathers and added a touch of blush with my R22 marker. I used YR12, YR14 and YR16 for the beak and legs. I then fussy-cut the flamingo and left a white border.

My image didn't initially stamp as dark as I would've liked, so when I was done coloring the flamingo, I went over the stamped image with a black Copic multiliner pen. I do this often to give my stamped images a finished look since Copic-friendly inks don't always stamp as dark as other black inks. I inlaid die cut a hi speech bubble die from pink and white cardstock. I used a large stitched tag die for my focal panel and mounted it onto a stitched rectangle panel which I matted on a piece of pink cardstock. To give the background a little added depth and dimension, I added a white scalloped rectangle on top of the white cardbase.

This was such a fun and quick card to make and I just love how it turned out. I hope you were inspired by today's card and visit my blog for a full list of supplies. Thanks again for stopping by!

Hi there, Julia A. here for you with a card showcasing the cutest monster in the crafting world, brought to you by the adorable Oogles stamp set.

I decided to try something completely different and color directly on kraft cardstock, using my Prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen. Check out the video below or on Youtube to see how to got the colors to shine so brightly.

Hi Friends!  Meredith here with a project I made using Moosing You and Express Yourself.  I watercolored the moose and added lots of fun mix and match papers for a layered look.  I stitched around all of my panels and added my sentiment using Hero Arts black dye ink.  I wrapped some black and white baker's twine and added some enamel heart stickers for a little extra texture touch.

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with a flashback card featuring a couple of my favorite older sets, Speak Easy and Castaways! I created a fun shaker card, coloring the octopuses and window background with watercolors, and using washi tape for a little accent on the bottom of the card. :)
