No Line Coloring with Crafter's Companion

Hello!!

I'm starting the week of with some No Line Coloring. I haven't done this in awhile but I saw someone doing it on Instagram and it inspired me to break out my gorgeous Crafter's Companion flower stamps!! My card today features the Beautiful Blooms set!

To make the image no line I used Spectrum Noir Inkpad Sandstorm, but I stamped it off first to make it a really light tan color. I stamped the image three times on a card stock panel.

Then I got to coloring! It does take longer because you have to be aware of the lines, doing a little at a time. I use the packaging as a guide to make sure I'm really coloring a petal the correct way. But, don't worry about being perfect! Only you know what the image should really look like and there were definitely places I color it a little different then the original stamp!!

To color the images I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers - Blends: Pale Pink, Light Yellow, Hydrangea, Dull Green.

When I was done coloring I stamped the Birthday Wishes with the SN Inkpad Noir Black. Last I added a few sequins for a little texture and sparkle!

For both cards I made my tea cups, but using my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the die cut cup brown. I used a coffee die cut from MFT to cut the ice cubes, using a gray marker to add some shading.  The straws are from the pattern papers I used.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Blog Hop - Card 3

Hello!!

Yep, me again with my 3rd card for Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Blog Hop! My card today features a few different Sponsors! While driving home from my internship I had an idea on mixing non coffee stamps, with a coffee cup! While not strictly spring or summer, I craft more in the Spring & Summer as the craft room can get cold in the winter. This limits the time I can be in the room!
Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - Unity Stamp Co Spectrum Noir Markers

I started with Unity Stamp Company Crafty Supplies Border Backgrounds, stamping it on a white panel. Then I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers to color it up.

Next, I pulled out Honey Bee Stamps Tea Time stamps and dies and used one of the mugs. I masked off the the tea bag hanging over the cup. Because the background is so busy I wanted the cup the be simple.
