Red White and Blue Lawn Fawn and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I hope that everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July! We sure did! 

We've had so little rain this year that fireworks were banned for the evening. We're in for a nasty fire season, I'm sure. However, my heart goes out to the peeps in the Eastern part of the country...Us West Coast folks would love to take about half of your rainfall!

So are plan was to just hang out at home and veg. We were all stuffed like turkeys from dinner, everyone was getting ready to watch movies (and eat MORE food) and I was all geared to to do a blog post, when there was a knock on the door. Our neighbors were inviting us next door for some holiday festivities. My husband and I used to party like it was 1999 every Fourth of July when we were younger, so we spent most of the day trying to convince ourselves they we are NOT old and lame We accepted the invite. So I'm a day late, but it's all good!

I love this stamp set on so many levels. It's the Dream Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn. I love how simple it is in design, but there are so many possibilities for it! I "fan girl" for anything Lawn Fawn, so it's no surprise that I really dig this one. Watercoloring is next on my agenda for this set, but this time I thought I'd do some Copic Coloring. Momento Tuxedo Black was my ink of choice on Neenah White Cardstock and I used Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper for mask off one of the Feathers.

I kept the embellishments simple and only added three Craft Medley Gold Sequins, but I did go over the Feathers with my Clear Wink of Stella Pen.

The paper I used for the red panel and blue card base were my inspiration for the coloring on the card. They are in the Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit. The red is Lipstick Red and the blue is Soft Navy. Simon Says Stamp kits are always rock n' roll and this one is noo different. If you don't have it, you should.

That's it peeps. I hope you like it!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.

Happy-ish Monday! I don't know what in the halibut it is peeps, but every time I think I'm going to do something different. Break out some mediums I've haven't used in a while.

As usual, I start…
