Video: One Layer Card using Amazing You Stamp Set & Colored Pencils

by May Sukyong Park

Altenew AmazingYou MayPark 5Hi, crafty friends! It's May here today with a one layer card featuring the gorgeous floral images from the Amazing You stamp set. It was my first time trying colored pencils and it was so much fun than I expected.

Altenew AmazingYou MayPark 4I started by stamping my images with following crisp inks: Rouge(flowers) and Frayed Leaf(leaves). I did lots of masking along the way to create some dimension on my flower bouquet.

Altenew AmazingYou MayPark 3After coloring my images, I added some shadows along the bottom of my bouquet with a light brown colored pencil. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set.

To finish off my card, I added a few clear sequins on the card front. I'm still on the fence about adding those sequins – maybe it would have looked better without sequins? I almost added red ink splatters right before I took photos of my card. But I'm glad I didn't.

Altenew AmazingYou MayPark 2Don't you love all the layers in different shades of red? I was surprised to see myself being able to color with colored pencils. It's a shame that I've owned a full set of colored pencils for 4 years, and I just realized that how wonderful coloring medium it is!

I made a video tutorial to show you how to make this card from start to finish. You can watch it here or on YouTube channel:

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Happy crafting!

This is a lovely card. The colored pencils create a lovely, soft look to these flowers. Thanks for sharing this.

Beautiful card. I love colored pencils. It was fun watching you work. I think the sequins look great. But the card would look great without them, too. Hope for more colored pencil cards!

Thanks for sharing this using colored pencils! I would like to sharpen(no pun intended) :) my skills with this technique and will look for more ideas from you. Your card is beautiful and since I’m not a huge fan of sequins, I would have left them off the card, but they do not detract from your card!

Thanks so much for the awesome video! your colored pencil roses are wonderful. I will be ordering a better sharpener for mine as I have a problem with mine breaking the pencils. Thanks for the tip!

Absolutely stunning! You make me want to color more, May!

Love this card the sequence looks good. I have the same problem with those pencils. I have the 150 set so I called prismacolor and they are sending me another set after I send mine to them. There has been a problem with the lead breaking inside the wood part and some will not sharpen at all. They asked if I was using their sharpener for their pencils and I was of course. Good luck and just love your work.

beautiful card and i love the coloring :) thanks for the video tutorial

May, this is such a lovely card. Great job! I have watched several videos with colored pencils prisma are very soft leads don’t drop them they do break very easily, so when you sharpen them that’s why they break.
