Card & Envelope – Faber-Castell Polychromos on Dark Cardstock

Happy Tuesday, all! I have a fun card and envelope for you today featuring the new Spice Garden stamp set from Waffle Flower. I thought the images in the stamp set would look great on a simple card where the images can stand out. I love to create clean cards like this because it makes it all about the coloring and I can just enjoy the process.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I stamped the images on Slate cardstock in InkOn3 Fade-Out ink and colored them using Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. I also stamped on a white envelope and colored the leaves.

NOTE: This pencil sharpener is my favorite since it sharpens to a fine point.

To finish off the envelope, I adhered some green vintage postage stamps. Super easy, and yet sophisticated. :)

    Hi Kristina, I received these pencils for Mothers Day this year and have been enjoying them very much. Your card and envie are sooo pretty. And I think the image is a Sage leaf.

    Simply gorgeous! I just started coloring on non-white surfaces, and I’m really enjoying it. I appreciate the tips, helps and encouragement of seeing you do it too! And I’m also a huge fan of how you match up the envelopes; it takes every card and makes it that much for special.
