Isabel Cristina Stamps - Me Time - Waterfall Card

samedi 6 juillet 2019

Hey there,

It's time to enjoy some me time and to relax thanks to this new set designed by Isabel Cristina Stamps.

I started by printing the images on Neenah solar white cardstock using my Epson printer. Next I cut them using my Scan n Cut machine, and colored them using my beloved alcohol markers.

For the backgrounds, I cut five circles out of colorful strip papers to create walls and also three other circles out of cream paper to create floors. I cut the cream circles more than in half and attached them on the strip circles.

I attached my sentiment on a rainbow circle, and attached each small panel on a coordinating circle to continue the monochromatic theme.

I cut a 3cm wide strip, placed a circle on one side and marked the edge. I traced a line from this mark, and marked six centimeters from the pencil line. Next I scored lines on each mark, and folded the strip.

With the pencil line at the bottom, I applied double sided tape under each folded line, but not under the pencil line. And next I stuck all the circles down on top of one another and under each folded line.

I trimmed the strip behind the last circle, and attached a rainbow pull tab on the other end of the strip. To keep both ends of the strip together, I cut another strip, folded it around the long strip, trimmed off the excess, applied tape on the inside middle part, attached it to the end of the strip, turned the whole element over, and closed the strip.

Next I applied double sided tape at the back of the strip, and only on the part, and I stuck my waterfall element down to a white panel brighten up with a rainbow frame. I attached the panel to a white card base, and finally added "It's ok to take a break" on the tab.

  1. Marine - I love your coloring and have been watching your spectrum noir color combination videos. I am thinking of investing in a set and was wondering if they have a strong smell like a Sharpie marker. I have a few Copics and don't notice a smell with them, but I haven't tried any Spectrum Noir.

    1. Hello Kelly! I've never used Sharpie markers so I can't compare but yes, Spectrum Noir markers have a smell. I'm pretty sensitive to strong smells (I can't go to a perfumery shop for example) but it doesn't bother me when I color so I guess their smell is not too strong ^^ And I think it also depends on the markers, some colors smell stronger than others ^^

    2. I am sensitive to smells too which is why I was wondering. Thanks for your response!
