Colorado Craft Company | Cardmaking & Coloring in Graphic Style. Video + Giveaways (Now Closed)

Hello! Today I have something very special to share with all of you and I also have a giveaway to thank you for being my loyal subscribers and viewers. There are 5 giveaways sponsored by Colorado Craft Company.

Colorado Craft Company is a newer stamp company. I have shared a video and several projects with their products back in July 2019 and January 2020 and I had an absolute blast creating with their stamps. What I love most about their designs is their huge size. The images, especially in their Big & Bold line, are very large and easily take center stage on an A2 card and can readily be used on larger projects.

I have 3 cards to share with you all featuring their new Big & Bold stamp line, the new designs for July 2020. These are available exclusively at Simon Says Stamp for the first 2 days after the launch, so July 3rd and July 4th, and after that, on July 5th they will also become available on the Colorado Craft Company’s website.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

BIG & BOLD SETS BY COLORADO CRAFT COMPANY

Each of the Big & Bold sets features one large size image that easily takes up the entire space of an A2 card and the stamp sets also have a number of coordinating sentiments done in various styles to complement the image.

Because of the size of these images, you have the freedom to really go to town with your favorite coloring mediums and add as many details as you like. You also have a lot of room to dress up your cards with additional mediums and add in more detail with a white pen for example, or glossy accents.

CARDS DETAILS

I started to work on my cards by stamping my images in Copic Marker friendly ink, Simon Says Stamp Intense Black, on white cardstock. I’ve done some prep work and have picked the colors of markers I wanted to use to color my flamingo. I tested various combinations and I also tested various alcohol markers, not just Copics. I ended up deciding to use RV10, RV21, and RV23, those are Copic markers and 453 marker, which is a Nuvo marker by Tonic Studios.

Included in the flamingo set is beautiful tropical greenery. I stamped it in black ink and my idea was to color it, cut it out and layer over my bird. I also stamped a sentiment, it reads Tickled Pink that we are friends. I adhered my panel to the A2 white side folding card base, next I added Pink Blush Jewels from Pretty Pink Posh and covered the image with Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to add some shimmery shine to my flamingo.

The hummingbird card features some masking. I stamped the image of the hummingbird, masked it and stamped flowers cascading from the top down. I ended up having 4 flowers creating a busy floral background for my bird. I used very similar marker colors to do my coloring. I went with RV10, R83, and RV19.
The leaves were colored using Altenew markers and I used G702, G715, and G554. The bird was colored using:

I also used a B000 marker to color the background light blue. I love this trick – using my Copic markers to add color to the background. I stamped a sentiment in black ink on a separate piece of paper, cut it out and foam mounted onto the card. Next, I used a white pen and cleaned up the flower stamens a bit and again used a Nuvo shimmer pen to add shimmer and shine to my bird.

I’ve found the peacock image the hardest to color using my no blending method. I think that is probably because I’ve never colored a peacock before and I just had no idea where to start. To make things easier for myself, and you can use this trick also, I used a pencil and sectioned the image indicating what color each section needed to be. That made the coloring so much easier! In a way, this ended up being like paint by number.

    1. Ha! Ha! I comment for this giveaway, but MISSED the lip color question! I would say, Light Pink! If it has some shimmer to it, I’m fine with that too! ;)<3

    1. Love your cards! Those birds are just fabulous and your backgrounds with them are spectacular! I know I’ve missed the giveaway, but will give a light pink or a more neutrally tone for me. But I do love the bold red lips that others are comfortable enough to wear 🙂

    1. Your cards are stunningly beautiful! After stamping for many years, it is rare I get as excited as I am
      about these new stamp sets! I love your coloring technique on them. As for favorite lip color, I love a bold
      red. 🙂

    1. Love to use watercolor pencils or just colored pencils. The lips… not bold enough to wear the red but think it looks beautiful. Thank you for all you share with us!

    1. Enjoyed watching your video, I was not familiar with this company, and love the birds, and your bright coloring.

    1. I love all stamps sets. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. Congrats to other winners

    1. I have not tried your technique yet but I surely will soon, i use copic markers as those are the only ones I own, thanks for sharing
