Friends With Flair

It has been so long since I was able to play along with Friends with Flair. I have been having fun with my stamps again. A little bit here and there, hopefully I will get more time for stamping soon! I made a really simple Thank You card with the Charming Cone Flowers Stamp and the Everything Wonderful sentiment set. 

I made a mask so that I could stamp the flowers multiple times and then I colored them with my Spectrum Noir markers. The background was painted with blue watercolor paint. I added a ribbon from my stash, some Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist in Frozen Jack Frost and some Shimmer mist in Frost. 

It was a fun and simple card to make.

Spectrum Noir Markers used: OR1 DG3 CG4 PP5 PP4 CR2 

Another Birthday {Unity Challenge Entry #2}

Today I am sharing my 2nd entry in this months be{inspired} challenge at Unity Stamp Company. Again, I went with the color palette, minus the orange. I had the prange originally but I thought it looked a little funky so I colored over it with some red. 

I used the stamp set called Cari Girl on this card. It's one of my favorite stamp sets, so much fun to color. It's a huge stamp so I made this into a 5x7 card. She was colored with my Spectrum Noir markers, but I lost my color list. I know I used a lot of IGs and CRs though.

Blend Of The Week #2 {Really Red}

Today I have the 2nd Blend of the Week to share with you.

I think red is one of those colors that a lot of people struggle with. I know I did. I avoided using red for a long time. Then I got a little braver with playing with blends and found some great combinations. 

The one I have today I call Really Red. It's a nice red blend, it doesn't have a dark shadow, but it's a good general red blend. You can always add a darker color to it if you are looking for a deep shadow area. I'll have a blend like that later on in the series. 

The blend is CR11 CR8 CR7, from darkest to lightest. 

You can see my full project using this blend here.  

I would love to see how you use this blend, feel free to link up your projects below. 

Have a color that your struggling with? Leave a comment with a color blend you would like to see and it might be my next Blend of the Week.

Anything Goes at Crafty Gals Corner

Hey hey! There's a nice easy challenge at the Crafty Gals Corner this week- Anything Goes! I know everyone loves those. This time around we are being sponsored by My Besties.  This was my very first time working with them. 

So here is my first My Besties card. 

I had printed the image fairly large so I kept the rest of the card simple. I added a small stamped sentiment and a few purple rhinestones in the corner. She was colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers and I have the pin-able color palette below. 

So stop by The Crafty Gals Corner and enter for your chance to win a prize from our sponsor.
