Using a Subdued Color Palette with Spellbinders

 Hello Crafters! 

I hope you had an amazing week! 

Yesterday was a hard mom day. 
Sometimes it just happens and you gotta roll with it. 
I'm optimistic the weekend will be better for the both of us! 

I shared this video on the Spellbinders blog last week and wanted to pop in and share it here. 
I definitely leapt  outside of my comfort zone with this one haha!


If you stopped by the blog recently you probably saw this video where I go on and on about how much I adore Stephanie Low. The gorgeous stamps I used on today's card are part of her Inked Messages Collection with Spellbinders. 



I used three different sets from the collection but since they are all drawn in the same style you can't even tell they aren't from on set. I love when products make friends don't you? 
I started by stamping my background using Antique Linen Distress Oxide. Man, these oxides are so awesome for stamping solid images. Seriously, swoon. 


Next I stamped out all my images and before I started in with the Copic markers I went looking for a color combination I would love. I have a Pinterest board that I start with because I already know I love those combos. You can check it out here. 

I didn't find anything I loved right away but I knew I was using a vanilla color for the base. I started typing in the Pinterest search board "color combinations tan and" and then I hit enter. Pinterest automatically fills in the blank pulling up color combos with tan in it. 
Super simple :) 

You can check out the whole card from start to finish in the video below. I'm not sure what my issue was but turn up the volume on this one, it's really quiet. 


Even though it's so far removed from what I normally make it's almost unbelievable I actually really love it. That mauve color is making me so happy guys :) 


Thank you so much for joining me! 
I'll be back soon with another video. 
Enjoy your Friday!

Grateful For You, Concord & 9th: Mixing Autumn Copic Colors

 Hello Crafters! 

Happy Sunday! 
I hope you all are having an amazing weekend. I'm back to work tomorrow after having 11 days off and I'm a little sad about it haha. 

I got my hands on the new release from Concord & 9th and wanted to share this new beautiful Fall bouquet. 
Even if, I am in no way, ready for fall. 
At. All. 


Concord & 9th always has the most clever designs. This one features a fun background you can actually stamp around the flower bouquet. I couldn't pass up a chance to use it! 



It's actually super simple to put together. Stamp one side of the background, stamp the flowers, stamp the other side of the background. Easy Peasy. I used navy blue for mine. Because in case you didn't know, Blue is my boyfriend. 


I jumped right into the Copic coloring after that. I mixed a few colors to get a different look in my Autumn palette. I use Copics but the rules for mixing apply to any medium. 

You can check out the whole card and hear about my dogs escapades in the video below 


I need a fence for sure. And I'll keep you updated on these dip nails. 
Back to the card...do you usually mix up your colors or do you stay in the same color family? 



You can see the height on that sentiment in this side shot. It was a pain in my tushy but worth it for that glittery goodness to be popped up :) 

Thanks for stopping by to visit!
