Once again I choose to go with the sketch!!  Take a look at my card:

Thank you so mush (YNS)


YNS: Plant Some Kindness, Teal Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Lawn Fawn Sweater Weather, Copic Markers, My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink, Clear Wink of Stella, Foam Tape

I have to say this was a hard sketch for me.  I couldn’t figure out what to do or what stamp set I wanted to use.

So I decided to go with a stamp set that I haven’t used yet.

This card was easy to create.  I simply cut my cardstock and pattern paper to different size and adhered them to the card base.

I stamped my image using MFT Hybrid Black Ink and colored the images with some Copic markers: Y06, R29, G17E25, E31.

I pop the stamped panel up with foam tape.

I add three gumdrops to the bottom right corner.

So are you ready for the new challenge?

You have until August 20th at midnight EST to play along and submit your project on the YNS Blog post.  One random participant will win a $15 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp Store.  If YNS stamps or dies are the focal point then the winner receives and additional $5 gift certificate fro a total of $20.  The winner will be announced on the YNS Blog the Sunday after the challenge closes.

Copic Coloring

Hello everyone!!  I’m here to share one of the cards I created for Kathy’s 30 day coloring challenge.

I used the new Lawn Fawn Gleeful Gardens stamp set to create my card.

Check out my card:

I love you so mush

I’m so excited about this card.  I really love how my coloring turned out.  I’ve been really trying to master my Copics and I finally feel like I got it.

Thanks to all of my Instagram friends for the encouragement and guidance.

I used Copic R24, R27, R29 and R89.  I’m loving that R89!!

I used Copic E47 and E49 for the stem.

I used W1 for the shadowing.

I added Your Next Stamp Clear Gumdrops. I’m obsessed with these.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the top of the mushrooms.  So pretty in person.

Take a look at some of the photos I shared on Instagram to get me to my finished card.
