Warm Cup

I loved this design paper from Doodlebugs so I decided to pair it with another House Mouse Designs oldie but goodie – the Warm Cup stamp. This one really is quick and easy to color. Paired with a sentiment from Paper Smooches and you have a fun card to share with a friend.

Prosecco Time

Noor Design is the Sponsor of the Week over at the Passionate Paper Creation and Friends Facebook group so I just wanted to show off the card that I put together using embellishments from the Crafteezee Collection. The image is one of the new releases from All Dressed Up called Prosecco Time. One of the three stamps in the set is shown here.

I’ve been experimenting with skin tones and I’ve started using some of the BV shades as an undertone for the E skin tones. I first saw this on Sandy Alnock’s blog. I’m still working on my technique, but I think that the BV undertone provides a more realistic shade for skin rather than the straight E combinations that are usually used.

Time to Sparkle

I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog today to share a project featuring one of the newly released All Dressed Up stamps called Time to Sparkle as well as the Basic Background Builders I die set from Creative Basics used to cut the gold and blue foil papers for the decorative scalloped edge.

In keeping with its name, I decided that I wanted to make the dress really sparkle and stand out. First, I colored the image with Copic markers on X-Press Blending Card (by Copic). I used Y23, Y15, Y17, Y19 to achieve the gold tone of the dress. But it’s hard to get much depth with the Copic yellows, so I first mapped out the valleys of each fold using BV01. Then I just did some straight blending from dark to light (Y19, Y17, Y15, Y23) to complete each fold.

Once the dress was complete, I added sparkle with layers of dots created with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen and a gold Uniball gel pen. I concentrated the dots in the valleys and then randomly distributed them across the rest of the fold.

Time for a Coffee Break

I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog today with a recent project featuring one of stamps that debuted last month at Creativation. This image is from All Dressed Up called Time for a Coffee Break will be available soon in the LDRS store.  These images are perfect for a clean and simple (CAS) layout. I added a burst of color with a bright red die cut using one of my go to die sets:  Basic Cutting Edge Borders I by Creative Basics.

Chick and Bunny Wobble

I happened upon the Cool Chick stamps from Stampingbella and knew immediately that I needed to color them. I posted one card using Mail Chick last month. Now I’ve completed another featuring the stamp Chick and Bunny Wobble and using a slightly different color combination on the chick this time. I’ve added another color map so that you can follow along.
