Be Creative (Again) by Colorado Craft Company

WELCOME BACK FRIENDS! I’m loving these Anita Jeram images from Colorado Craft Company so I decided to color the stamp set Be Creative this time using Copic markers. I have a new Copic coloring video for you as well so pull out those markers and get coloring!

I also recently colored this image using Karin Brushmarkers and you can see that project here. Speaking of which, I’m going to be teaching a Karin Brushmarker class at The Queen’s Ink later in the month that will be featuring Anita Jeram images. I’ll have more information on that class shortly.

Be Creative How-Tos

  • For the card base, cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# cardstock to 4.25″ x 11″ and score at 5.5″ for a top fold card.
  • Cut a piece of solid cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″ (I used Limelight Prestige Cardstock by MFT Stamps).
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock to 3.75″ x 5″.
  • Cut a piece of pattern paper to 3.75″ x 2″ (I used a sheet from the Summertime Polka Dots 6×6 paper pad by MFT Stamps which has been retired).
  • Cut a piece of coordinating patter paper to 3.75″ x 1″ (I used a sheet from the Black & White Stripes 6×6 paper pad by MFT Stamps).
  • Stamp the image from Anita Jeram Be Creative Mini on a Copic friendly paper with a Copic compatible ink (here I used Hammermill Premium Color Copy Cover 100# Cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black).
  • Color image with Copic markers (see marker list below and video for additional instruction).
  • Trim top of image with the Notebook Border Die from Taylored Expressions. Trim remaining image to desired size (mine is approximately 2-5/8″ x 4.25″)
  • Arrange on card background elements on card front as shown. I applied craft foam to the back of the white cardstock layer and the image layer for added dimension.

High Flying Adventure by My Favorite Things

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with another card featuring the High-Flying Adventure stamp set by My Favorite Things. This stamp sent reminded me of my husband. Every time we get in the car, my husband and I joke that we are off on another adventure. Usually those adventures are on the ground, but a couple of summers ago, we had the opportunity to fly to Tangier Island, a small island community in the Chesapeake Bay accessible only by air or by ferry boat. A friend of my husband is a pilot with a single-prop plane and he offered to take us along on one of his trips to the island.

I’m not a good flyer — in fact, I don’t like to fly at all — so I was hesitant to go along. I knew that I would regret not going, so after a lot of reassurances from the pilot, I decided to go.

Flying in a small plane is not the same as flying in a commercial airliner. We flew at a much lower altitude so we could see the details of the landscape below us. On the one hand, it was interesting, but if you are also afraid of heights like I am, you want to be either a lot closer to the ground or high enough that you don’t see it! But after awhile, I relaxed enough to enjoy seeing the world from a different perspective.

We walked around the island, had lunch with the locals, and thoroughly enjoyed our day. If I hadn’t gone, I would have missed out on a memorable high-flying adventure!
