The No Line Coloring Trend Continues! Macaroons!

Good morning and happy Monday to you!
I am literally obsessed right now with no line coloring.  I chose this set from Jane's Doodles, Tea Time.  I adore the macaroons in this set.  I did lots of masking and used my mini misti to line them up.
I did change my coloring medium to Prisma Colored Pencils.  I was at a charity crop a few weeks ago and wanted to pack light.  So all I brought were stamps and Prisma pencils.  When I got home I assembled my colored images into a finished card. Do you see the little stars around the image? That was due to my Mini Misti being dirty with black ink and me smudging the background with specks of black.  So I had to disguise it.  No way was I throwing all of my hard work away!  So I added more black specks with a Sharpie and glued tiny gold stars on.  Distraction works every time! HA!  I tied a long silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply store and added a mini pink flower from Queen and Company

Harvest Mice and More No Line Coloring!

Good morning!
It is a very gloomy, rainy day here in Chicago. 
I am heading out the door soon to pick up Cortney. We were invited to a charity bowling event tonight for her best friend, Patty.  It will be great seeing her and even greater that she gets a chance to catch up with her "old" friends!

I absolutely adore this stamp set from MFT called, Harvest Mouse. I also LOVE the look of no line coloring and am thoroughly hooked!  I did a bit of masking so my mice were behind the piles of leaves. 
I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I used my Mini Misti to line up my sentiment so it wasn't wonky!  I added a bit of polka dot paper and red gingham ribbon. For my final touches I used glossy accents on the cherries, and my Wink of Stella pen for the leaves. 
Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

House Warming Cards and Bags

Good morning! I am sharing a  couple of cards and gift bags that I thought would be perfect for enclosing a gift card for a new home owner or a recent college grad! 
I used my Silhouette to cut the silhouettes! I adhered a dream sticker from the Everyday Life collection.
I added a few sequins and some glitter glue to the heart.
I am in love with these cute striped bags!  I added a silhouette and a sentiment from the Everyday Life collection. I wanted the word, Life to stand out, so I colored it with a pink Copic marker. 
I am loving the colors here of mint green, turquoise, and hot pink! 
I did the same set but used the pink polka dot bags instead and a slightly different color combination. I used the same sticker for the bag and again colored it with a pink Copic marker.  
Pink and baby blue....doesn't get much sweeter!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!!

Guest Tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers!

Good morning! I am so thrilled to be participating in Splitcoast Stamper's Falliday Fest. 
I kind of feel like a superstar right now! ;)

I created a step by step tutorial on how I created this ornament using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam stickers, glitter, and a few fun trinkets from Queen & Company!
And since I am technology challenged, Dina Kowal also created a video for me,  with her take on these ornaments.  She created two gorgeous ornaments to share!

Birthday Girl! No Line Coloring!

Good morning friends!
I am up on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog with this card.
I picked up this cute stamp by Prima and decided to use the no line coloring technique on it.  I really like how it turned out! I stamped the image in a pale grey ink and then colored it using Copic Markers.  
I adhered the image to a pink tag and blue background with Crafty Foam Tape to give it dimension.
Because this cute tag needed a little something more, I dressed it up a bit by tying a ribbon through the top opening. Then I secured the flower and sprigs with Dodz Adhesive Dots Medium.  To embellish her dress and hair, I added a couple of teeny flowers using Adhesive Dots Micro. Finally, add the embellished tag on top of a layered tall card base.


 

Thank you so much for popping in today!

Halloween and No Line Coloring

Good morning! How are you all doing today?  
I went away this past weekend to a charity scrap event and decided to pack lightly. 
I brought my Copic markers and Prisma pencils.  I am loving experimenting with the look of no line coloring.
This image is by Hero Arts and it was colored with Copic markers. I was trying to be a bit different with the dies....and I am thinking it was a bit of a fail. But the image was colored and at that point was NOT throwing it away! ;)
So is it my favorite card? Nope. But I am sure the person I send it to will not be critiquing it the way I do. (Or at least I hope not!) 
I added a few purple gems and some cute polka dot paper to finish off the card. 
Thank you all for stopping by!
I appreciate your visits very much!

Lawn Fawn and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog Hop!

Good morning and happy Friday to you!
I am excited to be participating in a blog hop between Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Lawn Fawn!
For my post today I used this cute set called, On the Mend.  (So popular that it is sold out at the moment! )
This set was so cute that I ended up making 3 cards with it!  The first one uses Zig Clean Color Markers, water color paper, and a bit of masking.  I used my Mini Misti to line up the sentiment and added a few sequins using Dodz-mini.  The layers were adhered using my favorite Crafty Foam Tape.
Lawn Fawn Blog Hop and Giveaway - Day 5 Speedy Recovery Card by Michele Kovack
This second card is a one layer card.  I stamped the images, masked them, and layered a stencil over it.  I used a Tim Holtz ink to get those cute polka dots.  Then I removed my masks.  I Copic colored the images and attempted my first wood grain table.  ;)  I once again added sequins with Dodz-mini
For my third card, I stamped a bunch of the Band Aids.  I work with 9 year olds, and have learned that Band Aids make EVERYTHING better! ;)  I adhered my sentiment and colored panel with Crafty Foam Tape.  I also added sequins.  (There is definitely a pattern here I think! LOL) 
Be sure to stop by the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog and the Lawn Fawn blog for your chance to win some great prizes!  
I am off to a scrapbook weekend with my friends! I am ready for a bit of coloring therapy and girlfriend therapy! 
Have a wonderful weekend!
