Art Impressions Harvest Try Fold

Hello friends!! I’ve got a few things for you today. First, today is the FIRST! If you don’t know what that means… it means today is Anything But A Card’s FIRST challenge! Please head over and check it out!

Second, I wanted to share this really awesome card that I made using Art Impressions Harvest Try Folds. Currently this stamp is available in stores only, but should be available online soon.

I didn’t use the stamps as they were originally intended. Instead I stamped all three stamps onto one layer. I did however create a video to show you how to use them properly. Leave it to me to break the rules! :)

I took photos as I colored, so you could see the colors I used, and so you could get an idea of how I colored… and what it looked like as I went along. I colored this while camping with my family, or else I would have just taken a video for you! There are several photos, so I’ve uploaded them as a gallery so it doesn’t take forever to load. If you want to look at them individually, simply click on a photo. If you want to view them in order, simply click on the first image, and it will open as a slideshow.

I used Rose Peach, Pumpkin, Mandarin, Sunflower, Pink Lavender, Wild Orchid, Red Violet, Light Fawn, Nutmeg, Auburn, Rosewood, Apple, Chartreuse, Sea Green, and Lipstick Red to color the image. You can purchase Letraset FlexMarkers from Simon Says Stamp, or directly from Letraset (you can find their link on my sidebar). Once it was done, I used a stencil from The Crafters Workshop to add the clouds.

Hope you’ve enjoyed todays card! Happy Labor Day, hope everyone has a great Labor Day!

PDS115 & Letraset (FlexMarker) giveaway!

The challenge this week, at Pixie Dust Studio, is to case an old card. So I went through some of my older PDS cards, and found one that inspired me!

Picked a color combination…

And created this:

Somewhere along the lines, I lost the blue… but, I loved the green and orange together!

I used Pixi Lilly for this card. You can get her as a free digi download from Kathy HERE. She’ll be perfect to use for this weeks challenge!

Instead of using copics, I’ve been using FlexMarkers (and a few ProMarkers as well). So, for this image, I used several different colors, which are photographed below. If you’re not able to read my writing, please feel free to email me! jessica [at] canyoupixelthis [dot] com

The letters next to each (P/F) just indicate if it was a ProMarker or FlexMarker that I’ve used. I’ve done a rather sloppy review of the markers, which include information about a giveaway. :)

Letraset has kindly donated one set of 12 FlexMarkers to one of my blog followers! I’m going to sweeten the deal by offering an additional set of 12 FlexMarkers to one of my TWITTER followers!

I have a video, that will take another 2 hours to upload, but, once it’s live, I’ll edit this post to add in the video.  The video is now live! In the meantime, follow on my blog, and follow on Twitter for your chance to win! Winners will be contacted by March 1st.

Happy Thursday friends!
