Sharing a little green

Hi gang!  I wanted to stop by and share a little bit of green with you today.  I keep hoping and wishing for Spring to hurry up and arrive!  I decided to create a little spring inside my craft room. 


This card features a lovely little flower bunch from Grace's Happy Hearts.  I colored the flowers with some Zig Clean Color real brush markers and a water brush.  The orginal image was stamped on to Bristol smooth cardstock.
I kept the card very simple.  I cut out the flowers with a die from MFT Stamps and used a larger die from the same set to cut out the striped paper.  All of the patterned papers are from the Vivienne paper pad by Basic Grey.
For the finishing touch I added 3 sequins from the Lemon Sorbet sequin mix.  And that's it for my card today.  I hope you see some signs of Spring soon!

Planner tag and shaker

Hello there!  Cindy from In Love with Paper back on the blog with you today.  I've got a couple of fun planner projects to share.  
The first project is a tag that I made for my planner.  I used my Create 365 Happy Planner punch to make this tag that goes into my planner.  The top of the tag and the ribbon sticks out of the planner.  I thought this was a fun way to mark a page.

I used the Time to Blossom stamp set for this project.  I colored the flowers with colored pencils.  I added some Frosted Lace Stickles for some sparkle.  And a crinkle ribbon bow completes the tag.
This is the tag in my planner.  


My second project is a shaker for my planner.  I used the wonderful Friendship Blessings stamp set.  I also used colored pencils on this image.  And I used my Fuse tool with a waterfall sleeve to create the shaker pouch.  The sequin mix I used is called Frozen.

A Rosy Card

Hi! Marina is here with a rosy card. Big flower stamps often inspire me for a stamped background. A rose from Just a Rose stamp set is just great for such a background. I stamed it with bright pink WRMK ink.


The word Hello I die cut from black cardstock and adhered it to the mint flag banner.

For a little accent I used a black sequin from the Autumn Blessings mix. I also drew little black dots with a marker to fill the gaps between the flowers.

A Little Inspiration

Good day all!  It's Brenda here with a few little creations I made using the Kennedy Grace stamp set, Inspirational Verses.  I made these tags to give to co-workers, friends or even as inspiration for myself.  I keep them in my "war binder" ready if they are needed.  If you are not familiar with a war binder, quite simply it is a cross between a planner, bible journal and a scrapbook.  

The first three tags were foiled.   The verses were stamped on cardstock with VersaFine onyx black and adhered to the tags.

You'll see a lot of shine going on here.  Which I happen to love.

This tag was also foiled and a few of the beautiful Kennedy Grace Creations Frozen sequins were added for another pop of shine.


The last foiled tag was mounted on a metallic die cut for a little extra pizzazz .

The background for this card was smooched with water colors and sequins from the Autumn  Blessings mix were added.

And the last tag was embellished with sweet little flowers from the You In…

Using Complementary Colours

Hello! It's Donna.
I'm back with yet another card using the Friendship Blessings stamp set. I just can't get enough of this stamp. The clean petals make it a dream to colour. I have to admit to going out and purchasing another yellow Copic marker just so I could get the shading I wanted on this image. (I know, I suffer, right?) Once I'd coloured the image in Copics, I cut it out, leaving a white border around the edge. I then used a colour wheel to work out the exact complementary colour of the yellow. It was a blue, with just a hint of red in it. I mixed this colour using my watercolours. You can see that it took two layers to get the colour exactly right - the first set of lines were slightly too blue. The yellow really pops with the complementary colour underneath, don't you think? I spattered some black paint on the background (which I die cut with a wonky stitched rectangle die) before adding the image, and then popping the sentiment up on foam tape. The sent…

Happy Birthday

Its Karen back with you today.  I'd like to share a softly coloured Happy Birthday card.  This card features the Beautiful Blooms - Hydrangea stamp set.  Its stamped in soft pink ink so the lines blend and fade with the colouring.  The look I was going for was like the image was behind vellum, soft and muted.

I coloured the flowers in pencil and shaded the pinks out with white to make them really soft.  In the centre of each flower is a small amount of green with white gel pen over the top.  This added a bit of interest and gave the flowers a little more life, otherwise they were a little flat.  The outside of the bloom is shaded in very soft grey blended out with white.  The leaves are done the same way with soft green, again blended out with white.

I used a piece of green cardstock on top of pink to bring the card together.  Final step was to stamp the sentiment in black to add a little drama to the card and draw the eye to the flower.  Finished off with a few sequins from the …
