Hi crafters, Julia A. here! Today, I have a step-by-step coloring tutorial for you, using Inktense pencils and the brand new It's My Party stamp set!

I stamped the adorable turtle with Archival ink and then grabbed my pencils to color this little guy up. Check out my video here or on Youtube in HD to see how I build up layers of color to achieve shadows and highlights.

Hi Alley Way Friends!  Meredith here bringing you a simple yet fun technique that works so well with the new set Big Time!  As a background I used a wonderful set called Love Knots.  I stamped my image first with Hero Arts dye ink in Pale Tomato using my MISTI tool.  I then stamped over top using Versamark Ink.  I coated my sentiment with clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I then stamped my background image over the entire panel - sentiment included, using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.  The Versamark over the sentiment resisted the Distress Ink and I simply wiped any excess off with a paper towel.  I added a strip of glitter cardstock and some faceted embellishments to finish it off.  

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here with a flashback card featuring the ever adorable Pick One and Speak Easy sets.  This card came together so quickly, and it's super cute to boot! :)

Hi, it's Yuki here today sharing this super cute clean and simple card featuring the new set "Flap Happy." I absolutely love all of the fun bird images included in this new set; however for today's card, I wanted to highlight the smaller birds to make a quick, clean and simple card.
CAS Hello Card by Handmade by Yuki | "Flap Happy" by The Alley Way Stamps
I started off with a white card panel measuring 5" x 3 3/4". I used a "hello" word die to cut the sentiment from the center of the panel. I made sure to hold onto all of the little pieces of the die cut. I then stamped the little birds directly onto my panel and did some super quick Copic coloring. To give the front panel some dimension, I cut a piece of craft foam to the same dimensions and die cut the "hello" die in the same spot. This made it super easy to align my top panel with the foam layer and was a lot quicker than adding a bunch of tiny pieces of foam tape. To give my focal panel some added color, I added a strip of light blue polka dot pattern paper. I rounded the top two corners of each layer and then mounted my panel onto some pink pattern paper and a white cardbase.

This was such a quick and easy card to make and I just love the clean and simple design. I hope you enjoyed today's card and were inspired to use the smaller images included in this set. Be sure to swing by my blog for a full list of supplies. Thanks for stopping by! ♥
