You Add Color to My World Featuring Neat & Tangled

I spent yesterday at the Creative Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention at the Lancaster Convention Center helping out Tracy in the Photo Scraps booth. It was great to see so many people stop by the booth where Tracy was selling her custom scrapbook papers. When things slowed down a bit, I had some time to walk around and check out the other vendors. I couldn’t avoid the temptation to shop, so a few new stamp sets, stencils, and embossing mediums made the trip home with me.

One of my purchases was this Paint Night stamp set from Neat & Tangled. Being a colorist myself, I couldn’t resist both the cuteness of this stamp set and the endless possibilities for its use. I mixed various stamps from the set to create this scene and colored it with Copic markers (see colors below). I wanted to keep the design fairly simple, so I used texture instead of color to add interest to the card. I embossed the background layer using one of the Tim Holtz Alterations Embossing Folders from Sizzix, adding texture to the background without competing with the colored image.

So that’s it for today! What’s waiting for you on your craft table?

Butterflies and More Butterflies!

Today I’m back with the details on two cards that were available yesterday at Queen’s Ink Art du Jour. We had a great group throughout the day yesterday and I ran out of card kits before the end of the event. Next Art du Jour will be held on Tuesday, June 5th. I haven’t decided yet what I’ll make, but I suspect that it will have a summer beach theme.

Yesterday’s cards were all about the butterflies. For the first card, I created with a colorful version of Laurel Burch’s Flutterbye using a few non traditional colors for butterflies and Laurel Burch! At one point, I was asked how I decide on what colors to use. In the case of Laurel Burch images, Stampendous provides a coloring guide so I usually pick one or two colors from the guide and go from there. For the second card, I pulled out all of the butterfly stamps included in the Indigo Cats stamp set to create a cheery and colorful scene. The sentiments for both cards are from Penny Black.

So with no further ado – here the supply list for the projects. And stay tuned – my next Copic class at The Queen’s Ink will be on Tuesday, June 26th. Card models are on display in the store and the details will be announced shortly!
