Altenew - Ornate Foliage - Halftone Hello - Therese Calvird (card video) 1 copy

This set comes with all the pieces to ‘stamp layer’ but today I thought it would be fun to do some colouring….  and some bright colouring too!

Altenew - Ornate Foliage - Halftone Hello - Therese Calvird (card video) 1 copyI used a piece of Lagoon Cardstock as my base and added a sentiment from the classic Halftone Hello Stamp Set with a sub sentiment from the You Are Stamp Set.

  1. What a stunning card!
    Really love the effect of coloring pencils on this cardstock.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. That lagoon color card stock is just beautiful! And the colors you chose all make the card a beauty! Thanks for the tip about stamping, coloring and THEN heat embossing!! Thanks for the video.

  3. I think our stash of colored cardstock only gets half the attention it deserves … like this gorgeous Lagoon one! You’ve given it a treat today, Therese – and I can’t wait to see you make it… I’m off!!!!!
    =]

    1. I think my only concern with embossing after is whether the embossing ink would stick to the wax based pencil if I went over a line…. it’s something that I will have to try when I get home from camping. I would love it if you let me know how you go if you try it first. Have a great and crafty day, Hugs Therese

  4. Gorgeous card and beautiful choice of colors! I love the Lagoon background! I always appreciate colored pencil tutorials and tips- thank you!

  5. Beautiful vibrant card Therese. It looks quite exotic. Another amazing release. The problem is that I never get a chance to use everything I’ve bought from one release before the next one is available.

  6. Therese – I love watching your videos. I have used my coloured pencils on my last couple of cards so I really enjoyed seeing your card today.

  7. Gorgeous card! I always seem to reach for white cardstock when I stamp. I definitely need to start pulling out some colors. 🙂 Thanks for the tips about using colored pencils on cardstock!

  8. Wow! I cannot put colors together. Never would have seen these colors together myself. They are a beautiful combination! Thank you!

  9. This is beautiful on the colored card stock. I so appreciate your tips, as always and especially for colored pencils, since I seem to need all the help I can get! 🙂

  10. Therese, as always another amazing card. I always learn something watching your tutorials. Absolutely appreciate your sharing of your talents and creativity. You always inspire me to tru the tips, tricks, and techniques you show.

  11. You have a gift of adding colors together I would never think about. These colors take my breath away and get me excited about coloring!!!!!!! Thank you.

  12. Beautiful! This technique really adds a lot of depth to your flowers! Thanks for sharing a video, I pinned it to try one day 🙂

    1. I can’t remember it taking too long to colour the flowers, but then I find colouring very relaxing and if it’s for the look that I want then I will just do it. Another way this card would look amazing (and take much less time) is to stamp and emboss the images across the whole front panel and then just highlight one card to colour. Thanks so much for your lovely visit and comment today. Therese

  13. Therese, you used my favourite stamp set from this release & the card you created with it is stunning. Love the blue lagoon cardstock, & as you said it could just be left with the white heat embossing & it would be great. Thanks for your video & I appreciate your tips.

  14. Hi Therese
    Beautiful colour combination. I would never have thought to use the blue for a background, but it works beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing.
    BTW where do you get your pencil holders?
    T x

  15. Beautiful card — this caught my eye on the Altenew blog. I never would have thought it was done with colouring pencils (or pencil crayons as we call them in Canada).

  16. The pencil coloring on this teal color is SO pretty! Wonderful card. I am going to watch your YouTube video tomorrow when I have my coffee in the morning. Thanks for sharing!

  17. That Ornate Foliage set is just beautiful! Especially against the teal background, it reminds me of a tapestry or fabric on a chair. Definitely going on my wish list!

  18. Beautiful card, This may be my favorite stamp set of the release and I loved your design and colors. Thanks for sharing

  19. The colors you chose look amazing on the Lagoon card stock. I love coloring with my Prismacolor pencils too! A gorgeous card!
    Is this a long camping trip like last year?

      1. Hope you are having a great time. I know what you mean about missing crafty time. I sure miss it if I can’t get to my craft room to work on cards!

  20. WOW WOW WOW! I just LOVE your colouring. So gorgeous. I really love how you used the three enamel dots in the different colours to match your outstanding colouring. Just amazing!

  21. I love when you color on colored cardstock!! It always comes out amazing! This card is beautiful!! Thank you for sharing your inspiration with us.

  22. I have to start paying more attention to Altenew’s paper; I haven’t ever really looked at it much and it’s very pretty. Your coloring of the Ornate Flowers is just beautiful.

  23. I just did a colored pencil piece on black cardstock, and I had some similar issues with the white embossing staining. I decided that I kind of liked how it incorporated the bright white into the coloring a little more. (Though I’ll be honest here: I’m not sure if that’s because I actually didn’t mind the staining or if I was just too lazy to care. Both are equally likely.) Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards and coloring techniques with us!

  24. Can’t stop looking at this card, its so gorgeous and the colours really speak to me. Must make time to watch the video tonight while tucked up in bed!!

  25. Oh Therese, your colouring is always “at another level”! Love the colours you chose and couldn’t help but notice how well used your pencils were – unlike the full set that lives in my drawer!!!!! I also loved the look of just the white embossing. I will give both of these ideas a try, because, hey, for once I do have the exact stamp set.

  26. Beautiful card – love your color choices. Thanks for sharing the video. I always enjoy your videos!😊

  27. I’ve been using my pencils a lot lately-having fun. Can’t wait to try using your technique. Gorgeous card!!

  28. Therese, I’m so happy I found your blog and your card today is just stunning. I so appreciate your video and the great tips you gave. Thank you for such great inspiration. 🙂

  29. These flowers are so pretty and I love the way you have colored them! Might be time to get out my pencils again.

  30. I always enjoy watching your videos and appreciate all the tips to help me improve. This card is beautiful with the color choices and design.

  31. Oh so many pretty cards with the Ornate Foliage Stamp Set…you all are inspiring me and making me NEED that set!!!!

  32. Love the colors you used in your card, Therese! And, that bright teal background is a great way to showcase those gorgeous flowers! Thank you for making a video showing us how you colored those awesome flowers!

  33. What a beautiful card! Loved that you colored on the colored cardstock. I don’t think I would have tried that….lol! Thanks for all the tips on coloring on the darker cardstock and on heat embossing!

  34. Beautiful card using my favorite from this wonderful release, the Ornate Foliage set. Your coloring is amazing.

  35. What a fun video Therese. You are so REAL…. the look you achieved with the colouring on the teal background is just awesome.

  36. Gorgeous! Thanks so much for the tips on using pencils on colored card stock and how not to emboss first. Lol

  37. Dear Therese
    wow what a lovely card. The coloring as usual is perfect but I never for once thought it was color pencils.Love the blue lagoon u have used for the background and the bright colors of the flowers stand out very majestically. I cant watch your video as social media is banned in Sri Lanka. I just wanted to ask whether water color pencils will be ok. I am trying to learn coloring from all of you lovely people. Thanks for the inspiration.
    Love and hugs

    1. Hi Surekha, all pencils are different in the way that they sit on the paper, the Prismacolors are fabulous because they are wax based which makes them soft, the colour vivid and they blend with themselves (or with Gamsol), but you can certainly try any pencils that you have and even though the effect may look different it can still be just as amazing. If the colours aren’t as vivid you could try a lighter cardstock in the background or even lay down a layer of white (which I did on this card) as a base colour on the flowers so that the colours popped even brighter. Hope this is helpful and that your social media ban is lifted soon…. I don’t know what I would do without my crafty online friends. Big hugs, Therese

  38. I love the colours you chose for this card! I feel like that flower stamp is asking for lovely bold and bright colours. Beautiful design as usual, and the enamel dots add a cute touch

  39. Love your use of the Ornate Foliage set. And your pencil coloring is amazing. Thanks for the inspiration and the great video! Love all the tips you gave!

  40. I love your card Therese, the vividly coloured flowers look so stunning on the bold card stock and your colouring really is amazing! Thank you for sharing you video tutorial, I always enjoy watching your videos and learning from your tips. I am so happy you used the Ornate Foliage Stamp set, it is my very favourite from the Altenew May release, so beautiful!

  41. Your card is amazing. I love the stamping, heat embossing and color penciling in white then the color you chose so they pop on the beautiful lagoon cardstock. It’s just gorgeous.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
