I just couldn't stop coloring.

I finally took the plunge and bought myself some Copic markers. I didn't know I would love them so much. Because they are alcohol-based, they blend so well, and there are very few marker stripes. Now, I'm in trouble, and I can't stop coloring! Here are three cards I've made, using the Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet and New Leaf trios.


Paper: PTI White, Berry Sorbet, SU Gable Green
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow
Stamps: PTI Year of Flowers: Violets, Birthday Basics, Women of Life
Other: PTI Hibiscus Burst satin ribbon, rhinestone stickers, Copic markers

  2. Cheryl that middle peach card is amazing. Your coloring is so good for someone who JUST got some Copics! I've had mine for quite a while and I'm nowhere near as good as you! You go girl!

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:



It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.


Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy



Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
