Crafting Forever stamp set

  • Crafting Forever with Berry Burst Pens
  • Project Life Hello Lovely collection

Crafty Pens

I saw this new stamp set in April, ordered it right away, and then it sat on my stamp shelf until today.  You can see the images in this set further down in this post.  I used the three pens today, but can't wait to use some of the other images later this week.    

It took me a while to figure out how best to color the pen images.  I started with ink and Aqua Painter and found it to be kind of hard to control the details.  Then I reached for the new In Color Markers and found the colors too saturated and I lost the details of the small images on each pen.  Then I reached for my water color pencils and that seemed to be the best option for coloring the pens.  However, the colors were a little dull when I finished, so I grabbed my Aqua Painter and just barely touched each watercolor pencil area to make the colors pop.   We don't have In Color watercolor pencils, but I think the Melon Mambo,  Old Olive and Basic Gray worked well on this card.   

The card is accented with a 1/2" Berry Bright Finely Woven Ribbon tab.  The sentiment is stamped in Night of Navy, as is the image of the 3 pens.        

The basecard is Basic Black, accented with a Berry Burst Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.  The image block rectangle is Whisper White and Berry Burst cardstock.  The oval image block is die cut with the Layering Ovals dies using the Big Shot Die Cut machine.  The Whisper White oval is matted with a scalloped Basic Black oval. The sentiment is stamped on a Stitched Shapes Oval 


I did a version to use as a Graduation card with a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set and some of the Glitter Enamel Dots.
