Hey Friends! It’s EK, and last week I discovered how gorgeous coloring on Soft Finish Cardstock is with colored pencils, so today I thought I would play around with some stamps that are simply meant to be colored with this medium. I can not be more impressed with how stunning Charlene’s stamps look colored in with my pencils.
Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Stamp the sweet gal from the Make a Wish stamp set into the center of the paper. Stamp the image again onto some masking paper (I used post-it note paper). Trim out the image on the masking paper and add it to the stamped image
Step Two: With the making paper in place, stamp other images from the stamp set over the sweet gal multiple times.
Here is what the cardstock looks like with the masking paper still in place.
Here is what the image looks like after the masking paper is lifited.
Step Three: Color in the image with your colored pencils.
Step Four: Trim a piece of True Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 and added it to an A2 cardframe with some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Five: Die cut the focal image with one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die sets and adhere it to the True Green Soft Finish Cardstock.
What do you think of this medium on Soft Finish Cardstock? Have you experiment with colored pencils on your projects? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting!
Hey Everyone! It’s EK today with some sepia toned love cards.
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to create a collection of romantic cards that can be used for Cupid’s holiday or frankly any day. Charlene’s A Field of Flowers stamp set is the perfect way to create a simple collections of cards. And let’s be honest, these flowers are just begging for a sepia treatment.
Step One: Stamp all the images from the A Field of Flowers stamp set onto Watercolor Paper using water proof ink.
Step Two: Using watercolor pencils in shades of brown, tan and peach color the flowers.
Step Three: Using a watercolor brush, spread the pencil out.
Step Four: Repeat steps one and two with the rest of the images.
Step Five: Using a watercolor pencil, shade around the edges of the watercolor paper. I used shades of red, pink and purple.
Step Six: Using a watercolor brush, blend out the pencil.
Step Seven: Repeat steps five and six with rest of the images.
Step Eight: Using the Love Sentiments stamp set, add the sentiment onto each image. I used grey on all except the one with the leaves.
Step Nine: Mount the watercolor paper onto an A2 card frame.
I hope you enjoy these super simple, yet romantic cards. Let me know in the comments below what you think about turning the flowers into sepia tones. Until then, happy crafting.

It’s Karen here today. My parents have a milestone anniversary coming up. 6o years is the Diamond anniversary, so I turned a square on its side to create a diamond-shaped card!
We are throwing them a dinner party, and I wanted to create a few printed invitations for special guests. I used a few of the flower stamps to create the invitations. On the back of the card is where I put the details about the event printed from my computer.
