Made You A Present

Hi there,

I haven't made a lot of Christmas cards this year but I made a few to send to the Grandkids. This one is from Whimsy Stamps called Grumpy Holidays .  Have you tried these stamps yet?  They are so fun to color!  I thought this one with the dog on it would be good for a boy.

Snowman and Friends Snow Globe

Hi there,

It's been a while since my last post so I got inspired yesterday to color up this adorable stamp from Purple Onion Designs called Snow globe. I just adore Stacey Yacula and her designs. You can check her work out on Etsy.  The inspiration for the colors comes from a new coloring class from Passionate Paper Creations Rhea is the instructor.  Even if you've been coloring for a while you will learn something new.  It's always good to go back and review too! On this image I used the color combo she used as well as coloring sky, snow, flicking and texture on the animals. I love how it turned out.  Its not the image she used but it worked for mine.

other supplies used:
DP is Fresh Pink Studio Christmas Wishes
Hero Arts Red Royal ink

Autumn Winds

Hi there,

I have another fall card to share.  This time its a stamp from Stampendous House Mouse Designs called Autumn Winds.  I just love these House Mouse Designs.  Don't you?  This one was so fun to color too!  I airbrushed the sky with Copics as well. The Sentiment is from Powerpoppy Feeling Fall Set. I stamped it with Hero Arts ink then used Ranger super fine detail powder in clear. Die cuts are from Spellbinders Lg. Deckled Rectangles and and sentiment is a die cut from Lawn Fawn Stitched Labels. DP is from BoBunny Dreams of Autumn Collection.

Happy Fall and Happy Coloring!

Oak Leaves & Gourds

Hi there,

I'm back with my first fall card of the season. I'm afraid I'm not getting very far as my craft room is a disaster right now. Having some work started shortly on the back patio and have some of the furniture stuffed in my room right now. I can't seem to get any crafting done when its a mess.

I chose to use two stamps sets from Powerpoppy.  Have you tried these stamps? They are always so much fun to color. the first one is Olive & Oak Expanded and Feeling Fall. She also carries digitals.  DP is from BoBunny and I just added some Nuvo drops and stickles for sparkle.

Happy Fall and Happy Coloring!

Daffodil Jar/First Day Of Summer

Hi there,

Well summer has arrived! It's a bit toasty here hope you are keeping cool wherever you live.  I am sharing my last project for the Graciellie Creative Design Team.  I decided to color up this daffodil jar from the Simple Wisdom digital stamp set for June.  I really wanted to color this jar because I attended a Copic Advanced boot camp in May and we colored something similar focusing on the jar, water, transparency, added water drops and of course flowers. I feel I achieved what I set out to do here.

I want to say thank you to Gracie of Graciellie Design. I have enjoyed my time with her team. Everyone was a joy to work with. So many talented team members and Gracie always blows me away with her talent!   I will be taking some time off for the summer.
