Anita Jeram Big Love by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! Still coloring through my stash of stamp sets that I purchased in the past year. Obviously, I bought a lot of Anita Jeram images because I’m back today with another – Big Love.

Today is a special day in my family. It’s my father’s 94th birthday! I needed a card to celebrate the occasion so I got to work coloring. As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Lots of Love by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! Here is the last of my clean and simple cards from my snow day in the studio coloring spree! I have a lot of Anita Jeram images — don’t you just love her illustrations! — so for this card I used the Lots of Love stamp set by Colorado Craft Company. I love the simplicity of her images and they really are easy to color. So if you are in need of a Valentine’s Day card, keep this one in mind.

Better Together by Colorado Craft Company

HEY FRIENDS! More clean and simple projects as I work through my stash. Today project features another Anita Jeram stamp from Colorado Craft Company – Better Together. I love these images. They’re easy to color and can stand alone as the central image without further embellishment. As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Rowhouse Greetings | Better Together by Colorado Craft Company

So this card is pretty straightforward. I did the usual – stamp the image on a Copic compatible paper using Amalgam Ink in Obsidian by Gina K. Designs. The image was colored with Copic markers (see list below). Once the coloring was finished, I ink blended the sky and grass using Catherine Pooler Designs inks in It’s a Boy and Lime Rickey using a domed foam blender. I liked the effect, especially for the sky since it gave the impression of clouds. After the ink dried, I stamped a sentiment from the Wishing You Happiness stamp set using Versafine ink in Onyx Black.

That’s it for me today! Talk to you again soon!

Cute Chemists by My Favorite Things

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Monday was a snowy day here in Maryland so I spent it in my studio. I’ve not done much Copic coloring lately and I’m really getting out of practice. So I decided to make the first project of the new year one with a clean and simple design where I can just color and not worry about the card layout. I also decided to use a stamp set that has been in my stash for awhile — BB Cute Chemists by My Favorite Things. It’s time to stop buying stamps and start using the dozens of stamps that I’ve purchased over the past year that remain unused! As always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Today’s project features:

  • BB Cute Chemists by My Favorite Things
  • Copic coloring (marker list below)
  • Additional supplies linked in thumbnails below.

To start, I stamped the image from the Cute Chemist stamp set with Hero Arts Intense Black ink on the lower left corner of a piece of Hammermill 110# paper cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″. Next, I colored the image with Copic markers (see list below). Then I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set on the lower right using Versafine ink in Onyx Black. Finally, I added a few silver metallic pearls from Pinkfresh Studio to mimic bubbles escaping from the beaker and test tube.

I feel a few more clean and simple cards in my future! Honestly, I can color quickly, but agonize for hours about the layout. Maybe it’s time to just keep it simple!

That’s all for today! See you again soon!

Easy Gift Tags Featuring Holiday Happy by Stampendous!

HEY FRIENDS! I’m in a crazy whirlwind trying to get ready for Christmas. Luckily I’ve been making Christmas cards all year so they’re already made, so I’ve been making gift tags. I get hung up in card design – I can color an image in 15 minutes and then spend the next 8 hours trying to design the card. The nice thing about tags is that you can just color an image and cut it into a tag and you’re done!

When I was straightening up my craft room, I found that I had a couple of images already colored that I could quickly turn in to tags. You’ll probably recognize the images since I posted the finished cards earlier, but when I create a coloring video, I sometimes end up with extra colored images so I turned those extras into tags.

Be sure you look around your craft space! I bet there are some die cuts, colored images, or incomplete projects that you could quickly turn into gift tags. You can clean up your work space AND finish a few projects at the same time. For me, that’s a WIN / WIN!

Today I’ve got TWO tags to show you that I created from previously colored images! All three have coloring videos from when I made the cards so be sure you check them out. And as always, I’ve linked the supplies below with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

The image was too big for my tag die, so I used one of the dies from the Zig Zag Square Stackables by Lawn Fawn instead. The zig zag edge added a fun border to the tag.
