Hearts on a string card: using my very first stamp!

Hello, crafty peeps! Today I am sharing a card I created for Valentines Day using MY VERY FIRST STAMP by Inkadinkado. I remember looking at this stamp 2 years ago thinking, ” What I am supposed to do with it.” This time around I did better with it by implementing all the coloring tips I learned from The Daily Marker creator Kathy.

I colored the hearts with Copics and added details with Gelly Roll pen. Shadowing with C2 marker made the images pop a little! I cut out the hearts with an unbranded stamp die and adhered it to the card base. A bit of ribbon and a few stamp images by Lawn Fawn, and the card is finished. I am totally surprised by the results.

Thank you for stopping by; looking forward to seeing the projects created by my new crafty buddies!





Power Poppy Digi wreath and a freebie

Good evening, crafty friends! I have been coloring every day for at least 15 minutes: #thedailymarker30day is an amazing challenge to work on your coloring skills and learn many tricks and tips from the challenge’ creator Kathy. Visit her blog The Daily Marker to check out videos on coloring with difference mediums.

I purchased my first digital stamp Peony Love by Power Poppy : a digital stamp is basically a printable image that you can size to fit on a card base. I fell in love with beautiful florals by Marcella Hawley: the images are so big and bold. I also downloaded a freebie ”Let it Be” image that would make a great card.

I used Copic markers to color the wreath adding accents with a white Gelly roll pen and  shadow around the wreath with a cool gray C2 marker. The You trio die and All About You stamp set by My favorite Things came in handy again.  I also applied  Glossy Accents to two flower centers and added glitter finishing touches to the die cut with Wisk of Stella.

I am so thankful for all of you who had time to visit my blog. I cannot wait to see what you are creating. Happy Crafting, everyone!
