I love to colour in!!

When my sister and I were young, we used to love colouring a book mum had, which had lots of quilt patterns in it. You were meant to use the book to see how your quilt would turn out in the colours you had chosen. We copied all the pages in the book so we could still keep the original and would end up with lots of different “quilts” in paper.

So now I can continue to colour in with my new Blendabilities pens. I love these pens, although it does take a bit of getting used to the blending part of it. But I’m getting better each time I use them.

I wanted to have a play yesterday with my Blendies, but didn’t want to spend ages colouring in the Blended Bloom stamp. It seems that I actually don’t have a lot of stamps suitable for colouring in (don’t worry, I’ve got it under control in my first order from the new catty!!) but I did find the Flower Shop stamp set which has a good flower for colouring.

Well what to do with it? I love a good sketch, so I headed off to Mojo Monday to check out their latest sketch. (You can check it their post here)

So their sketch is Tall and Skinny this week but I didn’t really want to do that. I also used my colour coach for a colour challenge and I went with Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow.

So here is the sketch.

And here’s my interpretation. You can’t really tell from the picture but I coloured the rhinestone with the Coastal Cabana bel

So what do you think? I’m impressed!!!

Happy Stamping!!

24 January 2011 – First Post, finally!!

My goal this year is to post at least once a week.  I know, it’s a bit of a challenge!!

So here is a long one to start the week off.

One of my customers (hi Lynn) is moving and I wanted to give her a little gift to show my appreciation.  I got the Milk carton die for Christmas and I have been dying to use it.  They are the cutest little milk cartons that you have ever seen.  They are a bit smaller than I first thought but what they lack in size, they make up for in cuteness!!!

I found an example of a milk carton made into a bird house and I fell in love!!  I just had to make one.  I used a piece of actetate behind the hole, so that the surprise inside didn’t fall out. 

Paper:  Marina Mist, Elegant Soiree DSP, Acetate

Accessories:  Big Shot, Milk Carton Die, bird punch, 1″ circle punch, sticky strip, scalloped edge punch

I also made a card for Lynn, using the Word Play set.  I love the words in this set, espeically the size.  I also used the Colour Coach for the combination – Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Cajin Craze.

Stamp Set:  Word Play

Paper:  Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze

Ink:  Cajun Craze

Accessories – Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon, Brad from Hodgepodge Hardware, Elegant Lines Embossing folder, Big Shot

I’ve got another post plannned for this week, so keep an eye out.  Until then, have a great week!!
