Thanks

Hello there! Wow! Feels like forever since I posted a card project. Life’s been so busy from the time I went to vacation in November and even after returning from the trip. Add to the fact that the holidays are busier and the first quarter of the year even crazier 🙂

It’s good to get back on my crafty life slowly but will sure get there eventually.

So for this card I used my favorite washi tapes for the background. I also die cut the sentiment “Thanks” from Lawn Fawn while the stamp came from My Favorite Things.

There are a lot of craft supplies that I still need to use and hopefully I’ll be showcasing them individually soon.

I’m using a card sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch #196.

Coloring with markers

Happy Saturday!

I have a quick share of a card using Love Cynthia stamp.

I stamped the main  image from two different sets and colored them with one of my favorite coloring mediums, the alcohol based markers, promarker and copic marker. I only have limited colors on these markers but I’m glad I’m able to use what I have and make the most of it. These markers are quite expensive especially the copics but I get by with my crafty coloring using only what I have. One doesn’t necessarily need to buy all the available colors in the spectrum to get you to coloring 🙂

One thing I love about alcohol markers is that it blends nicely when you combine 2 to 3 colors and they also give vibrant colors.

I die cut the frame using My Favorite Things scallop die and additionally stamped some swirly vines on the sides.

I’m using a card sketch from CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge # 192.

MFT stamps and die – Card 2

Hello!

Just popping in quickly to share my second card for My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar 2016.

Print

You can find my first card entry here.

I totally forgot that I have this Die-namics Floral Fusion Cover Up die that I really haven’t used yet. Wow! That was bought sometime ago. I saw a card set before that used this cover up die and I made sure that time that I need to get this floral die. It’s a shame that I haven’t played on it yet until now 🙂

I’m happy to use it in today’s card background. I used it to die cut a subtle designed paper, with a hint of soft color outline.

Also, I had some coloring on my images, my gnome with watercolor and the fence and flowers with promarker.

I also placed a die cut vellum using MFT dies and placed it behind the images so they will not be lost in the floral die cut design on the base.

Sketch Challenge

Hiya!

Just popping in quickly to share my take in this week’s Sketch Challenge at My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge # 298.

I used the stamps from You Gnome Me and die cut the images too with their coordinating dies. For coloring, I used my promarker and a bit of copics. I also used the square scallop dies also from My Favorite Things.

I’m into MFT stamps lately and I’m building my collection slowly when I get the chance to get new supplies online.

There’s a stamp sale currently at Ellen Hutson and bought new stamps from where else, MFT stamps 🙂

So here’s my take

New “Love Cynthia” stamps

Hello!

Today I received my first set of stamps from Love Cynthia. I have been waiting for about forever to get hold of these stamps as all of the ones I really like are always out of stock. I finally got the chance when they went back on stock last month and took the opportunity to buy some goodies.

So what better way to make of today than to use one of the set into a card 🙂

My card sketch inspiration is from Sketch N Scrap, Sketch # 81.

I first stamped the two doilies in the background in two different colors, then colored my images using promarkers and copics. I also diecut the frame from Mama Elephant dies and added some sequins and ribbon for texture.

Mist and more coloring

Hiya!

I did some mist and spritzing the other day and yesterday’s card and I continue to use that in today’s card share.

I used another mist background using Mr Huey’s Jubillee mini mist and love how that small circle dot mist mimics the circles in my die cut tag shape.

I’m using Paper Smooches stamps, firstly  the main image and the pie and strawberry. I colored the images with promarker and copic markers for the skin color. Since the strawberry is a silhouette only, I stamped that only with red ink. I don’t seem to have a small cupcake stamp to let the guy hold as birthday present so I used the pie and top that with strawberry as alternative 🙂 That should do right? 🙂

Coloring with alcohol markers

Hello!

Today’s project uses this cute fairy stamps from The Greeting Farm. I recently received this set from my haul and need to color them quickly to make it to The Cupcake Inspirations Challenge # 373. I find the colors in the photo image perfect for these fairies to use, soft yet some darker reds underneath.

I used my promarker and copic markers to color the images. These are alcohol based markers that are great to blend. I have a limited markers of this type but they serve me well in coloring small images like these stamps.

The fairies have coordinating dies but I don’t have them so I fussy cut them including the mushrooms 🙂 need to do what I need to do to make them look good when I put dimensional tape to pop them up.

I used a card sketch inspiration from (CAS)E this sketch # 188. I used some fabric ribbons in the sides and also used my new wonky rectangular diecut to the white panel.  Love how the texture stitch add interest in a plain paper.

I used my new stamp from My Favorite Things BB You Gnome Me.  How cute is that gnome? 🙂 Always makes me smile. I colored him with  promarkers, and added some sequins for some more fun.
