Anita Jeram Candy Cane Mice by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! Just a quick post today. Lots of Christmas things going on — shopping, decorating, organizing — so I’m squeezing in crafting time when I can. But I would be remiss if I didn’t show you this project featuring the new Anita Jeram Candy Cane Mice, part of the new release from Colorado Craft Company. And as always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I used the main image from the Candy Cane Mice stamp set for my card. The set also includes single candy cane stamp and two individual candies. Coordinating dies are sold separately. All of the image was stamped on Hammermill Smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers (see marker lists below). After coloring, the image panel was trimmed using Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle dies and I stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clare ink in Nocturne. I adhered craft foam to the back for dimension using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive. then glued front panel was then glued to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest.

That’s all from me today! See you again soon!

New Holiday Release! Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! It’s time for another Anita Jeram release from Colorado Craft Company.

TODAY’S PROJECT

Anita Jeram Dear Santa by Colorado Craft Company

I have three cards for you today, all created using the Anita Jeram Dear Santa stamp set. The set includes clear photopolymer stamps with a dog, a bunny and a mouse writing and mailing letters to Santa in a snow-covered mailbox. The stamps can be used with the coordinating Dear Santa complete dies set (AJ733-D) and the Dear Santa single die set (AJ745-D) both sold separately. This stamp set includes 7 images and 5 sentiments.

Once I got started, I was quickly on a roll making cards. Coordinating dies are also available for this stamp set, although I didn’t use them here.

All of the images and sentiments were stamped on Hammermill Smooth cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic markers (see marker lists below). After coloring, the image panel was trimmed using Hero Arts Infinity Rectangle dies and I adhered craft foam to the back for dimension using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Craft Adhesive. The front panel was then glued to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest.

So let’s take a closer look!

Santa Bunny (again!) by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! In case you hadn’t guessed, the Santa Bunny stamp set by Colorado Craft Company is one of the my favorite images. I don’t usually color an image more than once, but I’ve used this one to make cards (1 and 2), a tag and even did a Copic coloring video featuring the image. So for something a little different, I pulled out my colored pencils and colored it one more time. As always, I’ve linked supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

FEATURED PRODUCTS

The Santa Bunny image was stamped on Stonehenge Drawing Paper using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. I used the multi-colored Stonehenge paper pad, selecting one of the grey tone sheets. This is actually my favorite paper and tone to use for colored pencils. I used Prismacolor Premier Pencils to color the image and applied Gamsol with a blending stump to blend the colors.

To finish, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Anita Jeram Hanging Stockings Mini stamp set using Versafine Clair in Nocturne. I trimmed the panel using one of the dies from Blanket Stitched Rectangles die set. I cut panels from Red Hot and Field Day Card Stock from My Favorite Things. I assembled the layers as shown.

That’s all for today! See you again soon!

Anita Jeram Boo Time by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! I’m a little late posting today – a new washer and dryer is being delivered here today which is exciting news for us. Trying to find an in-stock washer and dryer in the midst of ongoing supply chain issues that would fit in a cramp space was beginning to feel like an exercise in futility. But on Thursday, I managed to track down the last set in the metropolitan area of the model we wanted and it’s being delivered today. So we’ve had to double check all the measurements — even fractions of an inch makes a difference between fitting and not fitting — and make sure everything is ready for delivery.

BUT FIRST, here’s some housekeeping of a different sort!

FREE SHIPPING DAYS: October 1st and 2nd, ending at midnight, mountain time. Free domestic shipping and $6.95 off international shipping. No promo code required. If you’re thinking about ordering, now’s the time to do it!

BOO TIME
SIZE
: A2
Featured Products:

For the background, I cut a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock (my preferred paper for ink blending) to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and masked off 1″ on each side using strips cut from Masking Magic. Then I masked along the bottom of the exposed area to create a 1″ gap where I ink blended Distress Ink in Black Soot. Next, I removed the bottom mask and realigned it to cover the Black Soot and ink blended the remainder of the center with Distress Ink in Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonade and Wilted Violet. I created the clouds using the Cloud Stencil from My Favorite Things blended with Black Soot.

Finally, I removed the mask covering the bottom Black Soot blending and stamped the images using Hero Arts Intense Black ink. Then I removed all the masks and started coloring. Since I used Distress Ink (as opposed to Distress Oxide) I can color with my Copics directly over the dye ink. Marker list provided below.

I stamped the “Boo Time” sentiment on a piece of white cardstock using Versafine ink. I cut out the circle using one of the dies in the Hero Arts Infinity Circle Dies set.

When I was assembling the card, I decided to trim 1/8″ off of each side of the panel. From there, I just assembled the layers as shown.

Today’s Project

To kick off the Halloween 2022 Release, I have a card featuring the Anita Jeram Scaredy Cat stamp set. If you like masking, then this is the card for you! If masking is not your thing, coordinating dies are also available.

SCAREDY CATS
SIZE:
A2
Featured Products:

To start, I cut a piece of Hammermill Smooth Cardstock to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and stamped the trick or treaters along the bottom using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I stamped the same images on a piece of Masking Magic, fussy cut the images, and applied the masks to the panel.

Next, I stamped the fence using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. Afterwards, I used medium sized moon from the Tim Holtz Moon Mask Stencil set and lightly traced the outline of the moon in pencil. Then I started coloring, use the Copic markers listed below:

  • Cat 1: BV20, BV23, BV25 (fur); R35, R56, R59 (coat); E01, E04 (collar & cuffs); YR04, YR09 (pumpkin)
  • Cat 2: BV20, BV23, BV25 (fur); V2, V25, V28 (hat); YR09 (pumpkin)
  • Cat 3: E13, E15, E19 (fur); YG03, YG17, G29 (cape)
  • Cat 4: C0, C1 (fur); V2, V25, V28 (coat); E01, E04 (collar & cuffs); YR09 (bag)
  • Sky: FB2, B28, B69, B79, BV08
  • Moon: Y21, YR23, Y26, B00
  • Pillars: W1, W3, W5, W7
  • Gate: T5, T7

For the moon, I lightly colored using Y21, leaving a small white border along the inside. For the moon details, I used the coordinating mask to color in the features using YR23 and Y26. Then I used B00 to color the white space, creating the glow around the moon.

I stamped the sentiment on the moon using Versafine ink, covered the ink with clear embossing powder, and heat set the powder.

Finally, I trimmed the panel to 4″ x 5.5″ and applied craft foam to the back using Beacon’s 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue. Craft foam is getting hard to find, so you could use foam tape if you prefer. I glued a piece of Licorice Cardstock to an A2 cardbase cut from Neenah Classic Crest and then adhered the image panel to the center as shown.
