Coloring with Promarker & Blog Hop

vday-hop-header

Hello!

Welcome to my stop on the Some Odd Girl Valentine’s Day Blog Hop! You should have arrived from Anna’s blog but if you just stopped by then head back to the beginning to get started so you don’t miss any stops.
For my stop I’ve created a clean and simple card using Some Odd Girl stamp that I adore. I used one of the cute cat from the Clever Kittys Clear Stamp and colored that with promarkers.
I build the colors by laying light colors first- a very light brown color, then slowly adding some yellow-orange and brown to intensify the darker areas or spots in the cat’s hair.

I kept the mid-section light to show some light areas of the cat’s color.

For my card base, I also stamped a ball of thread with very light gray ink.

Coloring is somewhat therapeutic and you can use any type of coloring medium as you wish. One thing that I love about the Some Odd Girl stamps is that they are big enough to color and very pretty stamp designs too 🙂

One layer card stamping

Happy Saturday!

A super quick stamping with only clear shimmer from Wink of Stella Glitter pen and Pretty Pink Posh sequins in today’s card.

I have this hot air balloon with hearts on it that I won sometime ago. I used this stamps in a kid’s card drive before and I think it just gives a warm-thought-feel to someone you’ll be giving this card to from across the miles.

I did two more stamping here using Hero Arts ombre inks, and this one color stamp too.

Hi Friday!

Today is the 5th of the month and this means a new challenge is now up at the Sarah Hurley 365 blog. This month’s challenge – Buttons!

Who wouldn’t love buttons? These are the first supplies I bought when I was starting out creating cards. I may not have tons of them but I love seeing and collecting some for my  fancy. I do use a couple of them in projects and still have a lot waiting to be used.

For the take on the challenge, I use the buttons from Sarah Hurley’s A Few of my Favorite Things Tropical Favourites kit. The letter stamps are from Sarah‘s Block Alpha stamp set.

I did a combination of shapes and fish tail cut banners from Sarah’s kit and Snip N Cut sheet included in the Documented365 kit.  The triangles are from another Documented365 kit.

Be back soon for another project share.. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Me & You

Happy Monday everyone!

Today’s my take in Sarah Hurley 365 blog post and since Valentine’s day is celebrated in February, I did a love-related card 🙂

I selected random papers from Sarah Hurley’s A Few of my Favorite Things Caught on Camera (this is one of my most loved kit plus stamps) and another from the 8×8 Paper collection. I also got another paper from the Curio collection.

I played around these papers and die cut them too for some fun shapes. The hexagon shapes are similar to a block that I usually see in sewn quilts.

I embossed the sentiment from the Sentiments stamps with white embossing powder, and I also embossed the couple from the Expedition stamp set. What I love about stamping and card-making in general is I can mix and match stamps and papers from different collections without limits.

I’m entering this card in Curtain Call Cozy Quilt challenge.

Card challenge and a news

I’m entering a card today at Freshly Made Sketches challenge # 80.  I used papers from K & Company, cut them in an inch strips and adhered them on the card base leaving a small gap in between strips. The stamps are from Papertrey Ink as well as the die scallop shape.

Now for the news..I was accepted as a Design Team member at the Sketch N Scrap challenge blog 🙂

Beginning 1st of May, you will see my works at the Sketch N Scrap blog along with my fellow DT card designers. The challenge runs every 1st and 15th of the month so be sure check them out too.
