All About Stamping Lesson 5 – Lawn Fawn

June 8, 2011

You know I couldn’t have gone without featuring Lawn Fawn, right? :) Here’s today’s (well, yesterday’s) lesson video:

Here’s the card we’re making today:

It’s just one layer. Imagine that! I love the look of colored pencil on kraft so much that I don’t think you really need anything else.

Supplies: Cardstock – Papertrey Ink (Kraft), Stamps – Lawn Fawn (Petite Florals, Fly Free, Critters in the Forest, Critters in the ‘Burbs and Sophie’s Sentiments), Ink – Tsukineko (Memento Tuxedo Black), Colored Pencils – Prismacolor (48 Count Set), Corner Rounder – We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper).

Also, here’s the PDF print out for today. It’s free and includes lots of the information I talk about in the video:

I hope you enjoy today’s lesson and stop back tomorrow because there will be another one up! One that I have to go film right now. Ha! One day I will be ahead… I’m enjoying the cool, cool air here in my bedroom even though it is way to stinkin’ hot outside (but much better than yesterday). I hope you pick up some colored pencils and do a coloring card tonight!

Love,
Britta

    Thank you, I had no idea before I started watching your videos that you could blend colored pencils. It’s my favorite new technique. And this card is so adorable! :)

    super cute card, I so need to get more Lawn Fawn stamps. I just can’t decide which ones. Thanks for using a regular pen for the stems, I have wanted to sometimes add a little something with a pen before but new little me in the card making world was not sure if that might be a big no, no. Also thanks for showing how you ink your ink pads.

      Some people may frown upon using pen on a card, but I say that if it makes it look better, go for it! The pen I use just isn’t the “cheap” kind. Bic is my favorite for making lists, but these signos (they run like two dollars-ish) give a really dark black line. Sorry for enabling! Hehe. Let me know if you can’t decide between a few sets. I can always help. :)

    DaRn it Britta! I just got a ton of Copics (very expensive) because your projects turned me on to them and now I feel like I must get Prisma pencils again (I had them once but sold them because I got out of coloring images for awhile) because this card is so stinkin cute and I love the look of the pencil on the kraft too! You are making me go broke girl! :)

      Hehe. Sorry! I like both methods of coloring; they’re both just very different. You could always look on a local selling website to see if someone is getting rid of their set. You are definitely not the first person I know that has sold their pencils and bought them again later. They last forever, though- my mom still has her set from art school 25 years ago!

        Do you ever use the pencils with the odorless mineral spirits to blend them or do you just use the pencils alone? I used to use the spirits with them when I had them the first time.

    Love the colored pencil on craft. I guess I will be off to buy a few Lawn Fawn sets! I had been resisting, but they are way cute.
