Dragonfly Ride by House Mouse Designs

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Today’s card it a little bit of a throwback to my early coloring days. When I first started coloring, most of my early images were from House Mouse Designs. As time passed, I started coloring images from other stamp companies, but I still have a soft spot for Amanda, Monica, Mudpie, Maxwell and Muzzy. So today’s card features Monica and friend on a Dragonfly Ride!

When planning my project, I decided to start with the stenciling. I didn’t want to have to recolor the image if I made a mistake with the stenciling. So I die cut the paper and stamping the image so I would know where to position the stenciling. Using Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, I carefully stenciled around the image. Then I colored the image with Copic markers and heat embossed the sentiment. I added Wink of Stella in Clear to the dragonfly wings for a little extra shimmer.

That’s it for today! See ya soon!

Fun with Stencils: Class Wrap Up

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Just finished up another class at Photo Scraps yesterday featuring different techniques and products to use with stencils. Everyone had a good time and hopefully will be inspired to incorporate stencils into their projects.

Since I ran out of paper AND printer ink when I was preparing the card kits, I wasn’t able to give everyone my usual handout listing all of the products. So as promised I am following up today with the product information. Tracy and Lisa asked that I offer another stencil class later in the year. Stay tuned! I’m thinking about ways to incorporate stencils into holiday cards!

And be sure to join me TODAY from noon to 3:00PM at the Photo Scraps Yard Sale. Arrive early for the best deals!

Meet the Oddballs by Stamping Bella

GOOD EVENING FRIENDS! I’m back today playing catch-up after the rush of the previews and release of the Enchanted Flower collection from Power Poppy. Hope you enjoyed all the cards that we put together for the preview and blog hop. I appreciate all the comments you left me. It means a lot when you take a few moments to leave a message.

So this is a big shift in gears – the past two months I’ve been teaching Copic classes at the Queen’s Ink featuring the Oddballs from Stamping Bella.

Power Poppy Sneak Preview – Day 4

Enchanted Garden Clear Stamp Collection | Summer Berries | Power Poppy

DAY 4! ARE YOU READY! I’m back again with another sneak peak at the new Enchanted Garden clear stamp collection from Power Poppy. Both classic and new illustrations are featured in this summer-centric clear stamp set. A tumbling vine of ripe raspberries makes for the juiciest of focal points, while a sweet bird among strawberry stems is a gentle image you can color up in minutes. A strawberry cluster can be both a small focal image or used in a repeat border. Six sentiments round out this 4″ x 6″ clear stamp set.

Doesn’t this stamp just make you think of summer? Berry jams, strawberry shortcake, raspberry sauce over ice cream? OK, so it makes me think of food, but at least they’re summertime foods!

I stamped the image on to white cardstock and then colored it with Copic markers (colors shown below). I fussy cut the image (i.e. Scan and Cut) and set it aside. I used two of the dies from Spellbinders Elegant Ovals, cutting the largest in vellum and the next in white cardstock. I added a sentiment, stacked the layers and used foam squares to pop the image up for dimension.
