No-line Coloring with Spectrum Noir Colorblend Pencils and Gamsol | C.C. Designs Dragons


Hi everyone! Today I am back with another cute card created with the adorable Dragons stamp set by C.C. Designs! I also decided to experiment again with the no-line coloring technique, but this time using my new Spectrum Noir Colorblend pencils. 


I started by stamping my little dragon on Strathmore Vellum cardstock with InkOn3 FadeOut ink, and I then colored him with my pencils. I use the Spectrum Noir blending solution to smooth out the colors and, once I was done coloring, I die cut the image with the coordinating die.


I created the background elements using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables and the My Favorite Things Blueprints 31 Die-Namics.
I used my Altenew watercolors to paint the rounded rectangle and I created a little shaker behind the dragon.


I stamped the sentiment with Scrapbook.com Premium Hybrid Black Ink and added a few Nuvo Drops in Apple Green and Caribbean Ocean.

And that's my card for today! I really hope you liked it and I hope I inspired you to create with these adorable dragons by C.C. Designs!

No-line Watercolor with Gansai Tambi | Studio Katia Kind Bouquet


Hi everyone! Today I am back with a post and a video showing how to create a floral birthday card! Today I decided to experiment with the no-line watercolor technique, and for my focal image I chose the gorgeous florals in the Studio Katia Kind Bouquet stamp set.


I started by stamping the image in the Kind Bouquet stamp set over some watercolor cardstock, using Inkon3 Fadeout ink. I then painted the flowers with my Gansai Tambi Watercolors and, once the painting was done, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.
For more details about watercoloring with the no-line technique you can watch the video at the end of this post.


I then created a quick background by applying a light wash of watercolor on some more watercolor cardstock, that I die cut with the Scallop Hearts Cover die. I added some extra detail with the Brush Stroke Waves stencil and Distress Oxide in Antique Linen
For my base layer, I die cut some more watercolor cardstock using the Darling Ribbon and Frames dies and blended Distress Oxides in Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose on its edges.



As a last step I stamped one of the sentiments in the Blooming Bunch stamp set with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide, and that finished off my card.

If you would like to see the card making process in more detail, you can watch the video down below!

Easy Birthday Card for a Boy feat SugarPea Designs Hey Honey




Hi everyone! Today I am back with a cute birthday card and a video tutorial showing how to create it!

The stamp set I used is the Hey, Honey stamp set - such an adorable set with that cute bear and the bees! I love it!

To start off the card I die cut a rectangle out of some yellow cardstock using one of the dies in the Card Front Element Builder II set. I then used the Honeycomb Cover Plate die to cut some light brown cardstock.


To create another element for the background, I die cut a tag out some Bristol Smooth Cardstock with another die from the Card Front Element Builder II set. I then added color and shading to the tag by blending Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean.



I then stamped my images on Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers. Once the coloring was done, I die cut everything with the coordinating dies.


I assembled everything on a top-folding A2 card base, raising the bear, the beehive and one of the bees on some foam tape. To finish off the card, I added some white gel pen details to the bear's cheeks and some Glossy Accents to its nose.
