I Like How You Roll – Sushi Card


Today’s card is a little sushi card with stamps from Lawn Fawn.  I love sushi and Lawn Fawn makes such cute stamps. I also did a little video for this baby which you can watch below. So, I have a confession to make, I wasn’t loving this card about half-way through. I was really tempted to toss it but I kept working on and once I added the Stickles I just loved it. Something about Stickles over Copics just makes me smile.  Without further ado:

I started by stamping the sushi and soy sauce. I used my post-it notes to create masks. I also added a tiny bowl of wasabi but I ended up covering that with my sentiment.

I then colored in my sushi with Copic Markers, you find the full list of colors used. I stamped the background with stamps from this set using Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. To create the “table” for our sushi I used my post-it notes to create a straight line and then using my ink blending tool I applied the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

It was at this point in my process that I was a tiny bit unsure of what I was doing so I die cut the sushi using my Spellbinders Label Four set. Then I changed my mind and went in a different direction. I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock 4″x5 1/2″ and die cut another of the labels in the center.

I then used Shabby Shutters, Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to create an green ombre look. I used the small flower shape to create a little additional dimension on the card.

I then adhered my sushi piece to the center of a piece of green cardstock and then mounted my green ombre on top with foam tape. I stamped my sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then die cut this with a Spellbinders circle die. I added the teal flower in Peacock Feathers and inked the edge with Shabby Shutters.

I then added the Stickles and Glossy Accents which totally made me adore this card. I added a few gems from Mark Richards and Me & My Big Ideas and then a few polka dots using White Opal Liquid Pearls. I love the sparkle and shine on this card.

Arigato – Distress Marker Watercolor


My card today is a fun Thank You card I created with the Lawn Fawn Let’s Roll stamp set and Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I was really going for a whimsical feel to the painting. Something that would feel almost storybook.

I lightly stamped the images on Strathmore Watercolor Paper using Distress Ink in Black Soot. I stamped the image off twice before stamping on the paper. I also used masking to create the layered looked.

I started with the shrimp and painted the tops with a combination of Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. The rice was painted with Milled Lavender and Pumice Stone. The sake was painted with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean just a touch of Seedless Preserves and then Gathered Twigs for the soy sauce. I painted the roll with Black Soot, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn and Wild Honey. The chopsticks were painted with Chipped Sapphire.


The background was painted with a new technique (for me) I applied water randomly around and the painted with a light application of Gathered Twigs. This allows the paint to move randomly around the paper and created pools of color. I think that this adds to the storybook feel. Once my background was dry I stamped the sentiment in Black Soot and then went over all of the lines with a very small paint brush and Black Soot ink.

I trimmed my watercolor panel and adhered it to a pice of Apple Crush cardstock from Bazzill. Then I added this to a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and another piece of Apple Crush. This all then went on an A2 base.

Masking & Copic Marker Coloring Tutorial


I am back today with a new tutorial video. I created this simple card using the Critters at the Dog Park stamp set from Lawn Fawn. I really like this set and thought that it would be a fun card to share how I use masking and how I colored the main image with Copics. I hope you enjoy the Masking & Copic Marker Coloring Tutorial.

I created another video but I changed the process a little bit. This is my fist video where I am doing a voiceover as I create the card. I think that this allows me to give much more detailed information and show you more steps along the way. It is far from perfect but I think that this will be a better style of video over all.

I started by creating the mask for the  circle. To do this I started with a piece of cardstock the same size as my card front and then using my Fiskars Circle Cutter I made a circle in the center of the card. This allows me to line-up the mask with my working cardstock so I didn’t have to measure the placement every time. I used this design to create about 10 thank you cards so measuring once instead of on every card saved lots of time.

Next, I created my mask for my happy little dog. To do this I stamped my image on a post-it not. This is a great use for post-its because the adhesive on the back is perfect for this process. It holds but doesn’t leave a residue on the card. Once I stamped the dog I fussy cut around him, just to the inside of the line. Since this will be a mask, I wanted to be sure that I had my background as close to the edge as possible.

Now I was ready to get the process started. I applied ATG to the back of my circle mask. I stick this piece of cardstock to my shirt or pants so weaken the adhesive, since I want to remove it. I really should have used removable adhesive but since I didn’t have any on hand, this worked. I lined up my mask and stamped my dog with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black in the center of the circle.

I then added my post-it note mask over the dog and stamped the grass from the Critters at the Dog park. Now comes the really fun part of creating the background. I used my circular Ink Blending Tools to apply Luck Clover and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks for the grass. Once I have the grass as I would like it, I move onto the heavens okay, just the sky. For this card I used Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks.  Once this is done you simply remove the masks and voila. You have created a cool background in a circle shape.

Next, I colored my darling pup. I used Copic Markers in E30, E33, E35, E37 and E29. I laid down a base color over the whole body using the E30 and then blocked in my other colors and then went back and blended them. I used the E29 for his nose.

My inked and colored panel was mounted to a piece of pattern paper from Stamping’ Up and then this was added to a navy panel. This all went on a card base and that was it. You could really use any shape you wanted and any stamp to create just the feel you want.

Happy Dog-4

Darling Dachshund Dashing


My computer is right by the window in my studio and so I get chilly when it is cold, as it is today. So, to combat this I am wearing a hat, scarf and extra sweatshirt. I am sure that I look pretty silly but whatever, at least I am warm.

Since it is so cold today, I thought that I would share a sunny warm card. There is something so very happy about dachshunds. I adore this set from Lawn Fawn and it was perfect for this quick little card. If you would like to see another of my cards made this set, take a peek at this http://www.jenniferminer.com/?p=838.

Dog Park Day-1

I started stamping the little dachshund and butterflies with Tuxedo Black ink from Memento. I stamped the grass with Glorious Green ink from Stampin’ Up. Then I set about coloring. I used Copic Markers and I will list all of the colors in the “Materials” section.  I mounted the stamped piece to a black piece of cardstock.

Dog Park Day-4

I then created my banners. I stamped the paws and bones on  scraps of paper then trimmed and colored with Copics again. The black banner was just from a scrap of black cardstock. I assembled all the pieces on my card base.Dog Park Day-5

May last step was to add a little sparkle. I colored the butterflies with Wink of Stella in Clear and added a tiny drop of Crystal Effects on the dog’s nose. I also added two small adhesive gems from Little Yellow Bicycle.

The Copic coloring took awhile since I used lots of colors but overall this was a very simple and fairly quick card.

Dog Park Thank You Card

Good Evening –

You know those nights when you get distracted from working on your craft blog and find yourself watching Macklemore’s new video for Downtown, a total of five times? No? Perhaps it is just me. I really should have been writing this post an hour ago but I cannot stop myself.

Well, on to what we are here for. Today I have my first card with a new set for me; I just received the Lawn Fawn Critters at the Dog Park set. The French Bulldog reminds me of our Frenchie; Bella. I mentioned in my post for my Distress Watercolor Sea Life Card that I was going to do another like it; well this is it.

I will be adding this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for this week which is No Designer Paper. No problems with that challenge here.

Technically this technique is No Line Distress Watercoloring , just so you know if you are looking for more like this. I started this card by stamping the dogs and dog-related paraphernalia on a piece of Strathmore Watercolor Paper using Antique Linen Distress Ink. Next, I painted away. I used a lot of different colors and you can find a full list below in the Materials list.

In my last card, I used ink from Distress Ink Pads and this time I used the markers. I am not really sure that it matters one way or the  other but I thought that I would mention it. Instead  of leaving my watercolor with “no line” I traced around the edges with the Distress Markers using the fine tip once the watercolor portion was dry. I felt that it just looked better and more finished on this card. I am sure this has something to do with the quality of my painting.

Once the dogs and other items were dry, helped along by my heat gun, I painted the background using Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers I used a lot of water and very little ink. Once that was complete I stamped the dog prints using Peacock Feathers.

I then cut a white circle and scalloped circle using my Spellbinders Dies and added the sentiment from a Retired Stampin’ Up Set called Much Appreciated using Peacock Feathers. I added the ribbon from American Crafts and the gems and then mounted everything to the teal background and then card base.

I really enjoyed painting this project and am happy that I have added these pooches to the stamping line up.
