No-Line Coloring Technique

No Line Coloring Technique

Hello Friends,

I've had a lot of questions lately about coloring so I thought that I would share with you today the soft and lovely No-Line Coloring Technique for cards.  It may surprise you to know that I used the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set for today's card.  By coloring the stamped images with darker colors the stamp set takes on a whole new look.  The flowers look more like old-fashioned roses rather than magnolias.  Let me show you how it's done.

Are you ready to give the No Line Coloring Technique a try?   It really is very beautiful!  Plus, one of the nice things about crafting with paper is that it's easy to start over if you are not satisfied with your results.

Double Pop Up CardHello Friends,

Have you seen the New Wonders Hostess Stamp set?  A stamp set this cute just begs for a Pop Up Card, so why not make it a double.  And the good news is that this Double Pop Up Card will sail through the mail because it flattens and fits into an envelope.  How cool is that! 


Watch this video for tips and trick for making a Double Pop Up Card.  As a bonus, I also threw in some coloring tips for coloring these little cuties.

Did I mention that the New Wonders stamp set is an exclusive Hostess Stamp Set?  What does that mean?  It means that it is only available with orders of $150 or more.  You need to purchase it with your hostess rewards on larger orders.

Simple Coloring Tips for Cards

Free As a Bird Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends, 

Recently, I've had a lot of requests for simple coloring techniques, so I thought that I would share with you some coloring tips for making today's Free As a Bird Card in a Video Tutorial.  I love the soft colors on these handsome little birds.


Learn some simple Coloring Techniques for handmade cards using the Free As A Bird stamp set and Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up!.

Clematis from the garden

I mentioned in my video that I would show you some clematises from my garden. This one is a little pinker than the Purple Posy color, but they are just so pretty that I had to share.

Bell Clematis

These little bell clematises are a little deeper and a little bluer than the new purple posy color.  What would you say?  Are they a cross between the 2 clematises? Anyway, let me give you a bit more card detail.

Free As a Bird Stampin' Up!

I splattered a bit of Calypso Coral ink with my aqua painter across my card face to add a splash of additional color.  The "thanks" was cut with the Well Written dies and Purple Posy Card Stock.  and layered behind my bird is a snip of Very Vanilla lace Trim and some frayed Nature's Twine (Blackberry Bliss).  Scroll down for a Clickable link card supply list.
