Let's Pucker Up No-line colouring!

Hi guys!  It's Erica, in full summer mode, on the blog today! As it's full-on summer here in Spain, and it's hot, hot, hot, I´m really into limonada (Spanish lemonade) to cool me down. It's so refreshing and zesty. I love it!  I'm incorporating my love for limonada in today's post by making a card with the Pucker Up stamp set, that is a couple of lemons hanging from a branch.

CAS Paper Glitz Nativity Scene with Rachelle

It's purr-fect, if you ask me.  I stamped up the biggest image in the set with Black Hybrid Ink on Copic friendly ink, on Neenah card stock.  Naturally I went with a rainbow theme for the books the cat is perched on. I mean, duh, right? LOL.  The cat was coloured grey as I have a stray cat living with me, who's grey and I call him Carlos...

Color Blocked Wild Daisies

Hey cardmaking friends, welcome back.  Sandi here and today I have Color Blocked Wild Daisies to share with you.  I have been circling back around to some cardmaking techniques I have enjoyed in the past and color blocking came to mind.  I decided to do a little masking to create the Stripes and use my Distress Oxide Inks for the blending.  The beautiful Wild Daisies outline stamp from Picket Fence Studios was perfect for this application with it's big bold image. How to create the Color Blocking Technique Start by masking off the left side of the card front with...
