For my challenge inspiration, I used this adorable image from Saga Stamps called Celebrating Love, which I’ve colored with my Spectrum Noir ColourBlend Pencils. I used my Gemini diecut and emboss machine to emboss the “Love” embossing folder from the Sara Davies Signature Love and Romance collection for the background, and colored it using various distress inks. The sentiment was diecut using the “Always and Forever” die, also from the Sara Davies Signature Love and Romance collection.

Color up anything using your Spectrum Noir products and play along with us!

Seasons Greetings

Brrrr, we’re currently under a winter storm warning here in the US Midwest, snow is falling and baby it’s cold outside! But it also makes for the perfect time to wrap up in a blanket, watch a little TV, and do a little coloring with my Spectrum Noirs!

I just love this adorable penguin digi from Scrapper’s Delights! He’s called Penguin Willie North Pole, and he was so much fun to color!

I found some fun, festive candy cane patterned paper in my stash, and paired it with some Sara Davies Signature Collection Festive Wonder Snowflake Trio and sentiment Season’s Greetings diecuts. The border diecut framing the coloring was made using the Die’sire Decorative Dies – Enchanted Spring border die. All diecutting was done with the Crafter’s Companion Gemini machine. I added clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker over the sentiment for some winter shimmer.

Bridal Shower Celebration

My good friend Alyce Keegan, owner and coloring instructor at Kit & Clowder, recently wed her true love, Jon, and as part of an online bridal shower that was held for Alyce, Janice Collyer of Scrapper’s Delights created this beautiful limited edition bride image, complete with a bouquet enhanced with markers!

weddingstep2jclarksnwm

I colored her up using Spectrum Noir markers, and created a fun step card using my Big Score scoring board and an adorable bride and groom edge die from the Die’sire Edge’ables Bride and Groom set. The dress/suit edge diecut, plus the corner and flower dies, are all part of this set. Simply beautiful! To top it off, I used the Always & Forever die from the Sara Davies Signature Love & Romance collection for the sentiment,  and the heart locket and key die set called Key To My Heart, also from the Love & Romance collection, for the step inset panel. All of these dies cut beautifully using my Gemini die cutting machine.
