Midwinter Tilda....

I did it... I finished all the Tilda's in the box!
This is Midwinter Tilda.
The paper is from My Mind's Eye -  Stella Rose Collection.
I've had it in the box for a while and wanted to use it.
It's really pretty!

Since I finished up all the Tilda's in the box that meant I could get some more!
Like this one... Koala Hug

and this one... Tilda with Daisies

Aren't those both ADORABLE!
Along with 7 other Tilda's & 3 accessory stamps. I can't wait.
I'll have to get these colored up right away so I can order some of the new
collection when I can order individual stamps. Right now you have to pre-order
the whole collection and that's too many for my budget.

But if you see some of the new ones you want me to start with
make sure and let me know and I'll get those first! 

Have a great day!
Oh and Happy Leap Year Day!!

Tilda with Wild Flowers...

Happy Tuesday everyone!
Since I spent all weekend working on Magnolia kits and didn't do a skin coloring page
I thought I would show you another one of the Magnolia's.
This one is called Tilda with Wild Flowers.
Isn't she adorable?
The paper is Basic Grey Picadilly.
the cool flowers are the center from the My Favorite Things Botanical Beauty Die-Namic.
I thought the centers made cool flowers all by themselves.

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll try and get some more coloring pages done this week.
Have a fabulous day!

Winter Tilda...

I spent all weekend getting caught up on Magnolia images.
I told myself I couldn't order any new ones until I did up the ones I had.
I knew I had to get on it since they are releasing a new collection and I still haven't
gotten any of the current collection.
Well I did it I made up the three I had left into Copic Coloring Card Kits.
So I went and order some of the Sweet Crazy Love Collection.. 

I'll see you tomorrow with another Magnolia image.
Have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by.

Flowers For You...

Well I finally managed to do up another Crafter's Companion image. This one is called Flower's For You. He's a Copic Coloring Card Kit and I have used the new Echo Park paper This & That Graceful.
For the rolled flowers I used a new tool I picked up for the store: Imaginisce Petal Roller.
It was super easy!
It's actually a quilling tool, so it has a small slit in one end you slip the paper into.

I've done a quick tutorial on the Dotty Background I did.
I just need to edit it and I'll share it with you later this week.

I'll be working on the 3 Magnolia's I colored a few days ago today.
So if you love Magnolia's look for the kits in the store soon..
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great weekend!

Skin Tones 5 & 6...

Today's skin tones are more in my color range.
You can click on the picture to make it bigger.
Top one is Skin: E11, E00 & E000 Cheeks: R20 & R00
Bottom one is Skin: E11, E93 & E00 Cheeks: R00
I like the top one best, but the bottom one reminds me of a two year old's skin tone when they are just starting to
Throwing a Fit.
We've all seen that at one time or another I'm sure.

Previous Skin Tone posts can be found HERE.
I have a few more skin tones written down on post it notes.
If you have a favorite feel free to share it!

The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. She's called Bossy.

Thanks for stopping by. 
I hope you have a great week!

Just for Fun - Wryn Grow a Little Love

I love to color!
So I thought I might throw in some posts Just for Fun.
This isn't a kit in the store and never will be..
You can pick up this cute Tiddly Inks Digital Image
Wryn - Grow a Little Love 

I bought a bunch of these cute Wryn images and haven't had a chance to color them.
So a couple of nights ago I print out a few and sat and listened/watched TV.
That's what I call it when I color with the TV on.

The card is super simple because I just could bring myself to cut out one more flower.
So I had to search my paper pad stash for a great piece of paper.
It had to do all the work.
Ta Da.. Prima - Madeline to the rescue.
I didn't even have to cut out the border or hearts.
They where left overs or didn't get used in a kit.
(In other words I hated how they love on the current project)

If you would like to color up Wryn, head over to Tiddly Inks and pick her up.
Here are the Copic colors I used:

*Skin: E21, E00, E000
*Cheeks: R20, R30
*Dress/Shoes: G00, G000, G0000
*Shirt Sleeve: YR65
*Flower Pot: E09, E08, E07
*Hearts: R29, R27, R24

Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be working on the April Tutorials today. So keep a look out for those soon.
Have a fabulous day!

    A Little Gift Tilda...

    I haven't done a water coloring card kit in a while.
    So thought I would do A Little Gift Tilda.
    She's been patiently sitting in the box waiting for color.
    The paper is Kaiser Crafts Sweet Nothings.
    It has some beautiful designs.

    I added lots of Stickles Star Dust to her wings, dress and socks.
    She looks very pretty.

    I actually colored her in Copic's first, but then changed my mind on what kind of kit I was going to do.
    So I'll be back later with the alternate coloring on that.

    Thanks for stopping in!
    I hope your having a great day.

    P.S. If you love her and want a kit don't wait to order.

    Skin Tones 3 & 4...

    I found a couple of skin tones to share today.
    You can click on the picture to make it bigger.
    Let me just say these are completely out of my comfort zone.
    But I think they turned out pretty good!
    The top one is Skin: E13 & E11 Cheeks: RV32 & R00
    The bottom on is Skin: E17, E15 & E13 Cheeks R85
    I wasn't going to go to all the trouble of coloring the outfit, but it looked ridiculous.
    So I colored them in.
    Kind of grounded them.
    If you missed the first 2 posts they can be found under labels Skin Tones.

    The image can be found at Mo's Digital Pencil. She's called Bossy.

    Thanks for stopping by.
    Have a great day.

    Romantic Gwen...

    I found another kit I forgot to post.
    She's a Some Odd Girl stamp.
    I love these clear stamps.
    The saying also comes in the stamp set along with two others.
    The beautiful heart is two new Memory Box dies.
    Doesn't it look cool!
    Of course I had to use the new Basic Grey Kissing Booth collection too.

    Thank for stopping by.
    I hope you have a great weekend!

    Wee Bunny...

    Isn't this guy adorable? 
    This is a new Whimsy Stamps image by Sylvia Zet called Wee Bunny.
    The pretty Heart Chain Border is a new Memory Box die.
    It embosses the hearts.
    The hearts are called Hearts a Plenty by My Favorite Things.

    I used the Atyou Spica Glitter pen to add some sparkle, but I maybe should have added some Our Craft Lounge Sparkle Fluff to his tail..
    Oh well maybe next time!

    Groove Dude...

    Check out this rockin Whimsy Stamps stamp Groove Dude. He's totally rockin it. I don't do many guy images, but when I seen him I knew he had to go into the basket. He was so much fun that I pick a couple more by Kenny K to color up. Now just to make time to play.

     I've been working on putting the store into Point of Sale this week, so when I go to shows I don't have to spend the whole next day counting every last thing in the store. That is not a fun chore I wanted to repeat. So decide I had to come up with a better solution.. Ta Da Point of Sale.

    Needless to say I haven't had time to do a How To video this week. Plus I have all the computer equipment set up in the video shooting area. But I'll get one done for next week. I'll also be working on the next Monthly Kits this weekend. If you haven't picked up the current Monthly Kits there is still time ( I have 1 water coloring kit & 4 Copic Coloring Kits ready to ship when you order). Remember these kits come with a video tutorial or if your in the area you can come to class (March 17th).

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope your having a great week!

    Product Review...

    Have you ever gotten some adhesive on your card where you don't want it?
    How about sticking over the edge onto the next piece in plain view?
    Good heavens I do this kind of thing all the time.

    Xyron Adhesive Eraser to the rescue! 

    Now I'm not saying it's going to remove every adhesive all the time.
    But it sure does a bang up job on my tape runner adhesives.
    Just rub it over the adhesive you want to remove and Ta Da it picks it up.

    I've had mine forever and I still use it all the time.
