Perk up! Coloring Coffee Cups (Inktense Pencil Tips)

I haven’t gotten out my Inktense pencils in a long while – so it was about time! And with coffee cups I thought they’d be fun to use to create highlights – this set from Technique Tuesday has a lot of different sizes, so there are lots of options. One required a pen fix – uniball to the rescue (LOL!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And if you need more sentiments, Technique Tuesday has another set with fun coffee sentiments – cute huh!

Hummingbird – Set of Thank You Cards

I’d like to start by wishing Paulina a happy FOURTH birthday! Yes, it’s her 4th year as Pretty Pink Posh, and I’m very happy for her – it’s not easy to keep a business afloat! #girlpower!

She sent me some of the new release, and I chose these really pretty little hummingbirds; they’re perfect for CAS cards with tiny little watercolored birds. I used Tombow markers, but you can try whatever water-based markers you have at home. (Don’t do this with alcohol markers, you’ll mess up your stamps!)

Peekaboo Shaker Cards (with puppies)

Peekaboo windows. Shaker cards. And puppies. All in one! Okay technically all in four cards. These are lots of fun to make, and keep the coloring limited – some easy diecutting and fashioning of a shaker….badaboom badabing! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Here’s peeks at each one of the cards…..so darned cute!

Today’s charity

I’m sending some money to the Humane Society today. Why? Because the data on animal welfare was removed from the USDA website in February 2017 – which has bothered me since I read that. The Humane Society has been watchdogs and need information to monitor what’s going on out there….which uses the federal records, as well as state inspection reports, to publish its annual “Horrible Hundred” dog breeding operations that have been cited for welfare violations. They have had a Stop Puppy Mills campaign going on since September.

We can’t go restore all that data that was lost, but at least we can give, and promote adoption of pets! There are a ton of charities that help pets….go give a little to your local shelter or a national charity!

Lots of you have expressed an interest in creating scenes….but wanting something quicker and easier to do when making multiple cards for Christmas. Well, I have a tree idea for ya! This cute little reindeer sits happily under his tree, and could be colored with any medium – but I’m using watercolors today. Enjoy! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

MFT Guest Post: Love you to the core

MFT Guest Post: Love you to the core

Hello coloring friends!! I’ve been doing guest posts over at MFT and this month is no different of course! The second I saw this little Pure Innocence girl snacking on an apple from her little basket, I had to color her right up – and add a fall scene behind her! I’ve been obsessed with fall scenes lately – and you can check my Instagram feed for lots more scene ideas for your fall, halloween, and Thanksgiving cards. (And I’m moving into Christmas now, too, so ya best run and catch up! lol!) But first – enjoy the watercolor pencil video:

Lots of fun – and easy, too. That’s the great thing about trees…they’re just blobs of color!

Glossy Accents is one of my favorite embellishments on an image – adding just a little shine to her apples and shoes!
