Hi Friends! It’s EK and I am back once again to share how I colored up another one of Charlene’s new 6×8 inch stamp sets. Today I am playing around with the new Make a Wish stamp set. This is a really stunning stamp set filled with feathers and floral images. But hands down my favorite thing about this stamp set is the gal in it. What do I love about her? Well, I think she could be anybody. She could be any girl you want her to be. She can be brave, or curious, she could be sad or celebratory. She can be you or your best friend.
So I today I am creating a card that is wishful…for what, I haven’t fully decided yet, but I love how the feathers help create the feeling I as going for.
Step One: Trim a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock to 6×6 inches. Then Using a copic friendly ink, stamp the feathers from the Make a Wish stamp set all over the cardstock. I choose to use a collection of four colors to color up the feathers, so I planned out where each color would go. You can see where I marked each of the feathers with the lightest colors so that I did not accidentally color two feathers next to each other the same.
Step Two: Finish coloring up the feathers. I used a collection of earth tone copics to finish this card. The four collection of colors I used were as follows: E11, E13 and E15/ E40, E42, and E43/ E70, E71 and E74/ and finally E93, E95, and E97. I also used my E40 collection around the edges of the cardstock.
Trim a piece of Cafe au Lait Soft Finish Cardstock to 12×6 inches. Score and fold the cardstock to make a 6×6 card frame. Adhere the feather cardstock to the card frame using some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Three: On a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock (my favorite weight paper to fussy cut), stamp the image of the gal from the Make a Wish stamp set using copic friendly ink. Then color the image. I used E23, E35 and E57 for her skin tones, E23, E25, and E27 for her hair, and E07, E09, and E19 for her dress. Fussy cut out the image. Adhere the girl to the feather image.
Step Four: Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Mustard Soft Finish Cardstock. Then die cut the sentiment using the Fitted Indented Square die set. Adhere the sentiment to the card.
I like that this card really could be used for almost any occasion. It is a nice one to have lying around for when you have an ‘opps, I need a card’ moments in life.

It’s Karen here today. My parents have a milestone anniversary coming up. 6o years is the Diamond anniversary, so I turned a square on its side to create a diamond-shaped card!
We are throwing them a dinner party, and I wanted to create a few printed invitations for special guests. I used a few of the flower stamps to create the invitations. On the back of the card is where I put the details about the event printed from my computer.
The newest Planner Essential collection included 8 new stamps and 8 new dies sets, with Christmas and cooking themes! We also released 3 new planner colors alongside this collection! Take a look at some of them below!
One of the things I keep talking about with the new extra large (6×8 inches) stamp set line from designer Charlene Van Der Vorst is that these images were meant to be colored. I mean they were seriously designed with coloring in mind. So you can image my joy when I saw that the new stamp set Halloween Party was not only a large stamp set meant to be colored, but a large stamp set that was meant to be colored and Halloween themed!!!
Today I decided to share a little pictorial tutorial on how I colored these images in with my copics for anyone who is feeling intimidated by the coloring process of such awesome stamps!
Step One: Stamp the bat cat image onto some White Soft Finish Cardstock using copic friendly ink. Create a mask for the image and add it over the stamped image. I use post it tape.
Step Two: Stamp the other images with copic friendly ink over the mask.
Step Three: Peel off the mask.
Step Four: Color the bat cat in. I used C5, C7, and C9 for the cat’s body, W5, W7, and W9 for his wings, and V00, and V01 for his nose and ears.
Step Five: Using a copic friendly pen, add some lines under the pumpkins to mimic the Jack-o-lantern.
Step Six: Color the first two pumpkins in a bold orange color. I used YR61, YR16, and YR68.
Step Seven: Color the second two colors a faded orange. I used YR20, YR24, and YR27.
Step Eight: Color the pumpkin stems with a muted green. I used G43 and G46.
Step Nine: Color the ground using a warm grey. I used W5, W7, and W9. I also colored in the Jack-o-Lanterns teeth with W3 and W5.
Step Ten: Color the background. I used YG13, YG17, YG67, and G99. I also added dots of sparkle gel pen and white gel pen to the background.
Step Eleven: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, add the colored cardstock to a piece of 6×12 inch Rich Black Soft Finish Cardstock, folded and scored to make a 6×6 card frame.
I hope this series of photos help simplify the coloring process. I am in love with this stamp set and totally have big plans for it beyond just the Halloween card making season and other plans of playing with different coloring mediums with this set.
