Grounding Your Images: Beginner to Intermediate Scene Cards

Hello Crafters! 

Well it's taken me all day to get this post written. 
It's just been that kinda day. 

It's okay. Vacation is just around the corner. Praise the Lord. 

Sooo I have three cards for you today. 
I actually made four BUT the last one was a little bit involved so I decided to split them into two videos. The next one will be up either later this week or next week. 
But while we wait let's check out these cards shall we?


These cards all surround one special stamp set. 
Get Grounded from Ink Blot Shop. 
Tifany said she was inspired to create it by guess who?

Lil' ole me!
I was actually just as surprised as you probably are lol. 
I really love the idea of a stamp set that makes it easy for people to create scene cards. I love them SO much but I know they intimidate people. I hope that this set inspires more people to give it a try! 
 

I tried to progress them from beginner to intermediate to advanced. 
This is a beginner scene. I only had to mask her shoes...well it would have only been her shoes if I had been paying better attention lol. I stamped it a bit high and caught the bottom edge of her jacket. Don't worry I fixed it :) 


This one was legit only her shoes :) 
With this one we're moving a little bit closer to intermediate with the coloring and the texture added into her dress and the grass. 


This is full blown intermediate level here. The sand stamp gives the card a great jumping off point to create a more involved scene. I drew in a little rock for her to sit on. I was feeling my Disney childhood in this one obviously! 

You can see all the cards from start to finish in the video below. 
AND get a sneak peek of that fourth card too!


I think all three of them are super cute! No matter what level of coloring you think you fall into I hope you found something you'd like to try here :) 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll see you soon :)

  1. Gorgeous cards Kelly, I love that you showed also the grouding stamp set. Personally I tried to make backgrounds myself because I don't use a lot of doll or critter stamps.
    I would love to meet you in person but I don't live in the USA. Online classes I am not sure about taking them.
    Thank you for showing your video and have a great week.

  2. Great cards, as always. I love watching your coloring and scene building. The things I find most daunting and usually avoid doing are skin and hair on people. Because I find these challenging, I usually don't buy sets that include people, which in retrospect makes it difficult to practice and get better at them. I would love to take an in person class with you, though we live too far apart (I'm in CA) for that to happen at this point. I think asking people to bring supplies to a class is fine, except if it was an intro to Copics class, where someone was looking into starting with Copics. I would be interested in an online class, with or without your side stories. I haven't had the best of luck with some of the online classes I have taken, but I am willing to give it a try. Thanks for sharing your talents. Have a great vacation.

  4. Oh and YES PLEASE to the online classes!
    As for the in store classes...How about having the option to bring your own supplies but having the supplies available as a kit at the store for purchase :) pleases both groups of peoples :)

  5. Hello Kelly, such sweet cards and your colouring is brilliant. I've found your blog and thought I would follow you as I've been enjoying your You Tub videos, Kate x

  7. Could watch & learn from you for ages n ages. Great cards for me as a beginner with markers. As far as the other things, I struggle with florals, no matter how I try to shade them they do not look like a genuine flower, intact not even comic book style more mismatched blob to be honest. So that's a huge learn for me. As far as classes, unless you're coming to the UK & the middle of nowhere, which is where I live its internet classes all the way. If I had a list of products I need them I could sort that & pay for internet access to class. Keep us all informed with your choices. Have a great weekend x

  8. Love these cards! I would totally take an online course with you and I would rather pay more and have what I need to mimic what you are doing. I am not close enough to you for an in person class!
