Yesterday I had a Spectrum Noir Alcohol Marker coloring class, which focused on shading clothing. I had recently ordered from Etsy a Sherri Baldy digi stamp (there were two images to my surprise and delight). I thought this would be a great image to practice clothing coloring. A color palette of blues and pinks was chosen. When she was finished, I knew I had to submit another card to the Fusion Card Challenge – Pretty in Pink Card Challenge.

She was so much fun to color. Here are the markers we used: Hair – base from roots to midway of hair GB11 then GB4 to the ends. TN3, GB 10, TN5, EB4, EB5 (dots throughout hair); skin – EB1, FS7, FS9 and FS8 for cheeks and lips; dress and headband- TB1, TB4, TB5; Pants – LY1, CT4; Flowers PP1 and PP3 and Blender throughout project.

The flowers are from the Heartfelt Creations – Botanical Rose. The base of the card is FSJ Whip Cream with FSJ Watermelon Fusion and FSJ Bubble Gum cardstocks as mats. The oval was cut from Heartfelt Creations Strawberry Fields 12 x 12 paper pack. The pearl accents are FSJ pearls and they were colored with Spectrum Noir PP2 marker to make them pink. A layer of Journey Glaze was added to all the flowers to make them shine and pop. And, finally the bow is SU! silk ribbon made into a double bow.

Here in Georgia, the weather is fine, the trees are blooming, the birds are building their nests, and wouldn’t you know the most adorable bunnies showed up in my craft room wanting to make a grand entrance as well. They hopped right over and posed for a Pretty in Pink Bunny Delight portrait.

This was perfect timing for the Fusion Card Challenge – Pretty in Pink. Fusion Card Challenges allow three variations to a crafter’s designs. First choice, you can choose just the template layout; second choice, you can choose the color theme; or, you can combine both into one design. I decided to stick with the color theme of PINK.

Once the bunnies were settled down and ready for me to create, I stamped their images onto Spectrum Noir cardstock using Fun Stampers Journey Spring Fling stamp set. I then colored them with the following Sprectrum Noir Alcohol Markers: The bunnies heads and bodies IG1 and IG2; their ears, feet, bellies, cheeks, and noses PP1. This was a very simple and easy coloring project. Great for beginners. They are just too cute.

The base of the card is Fun Stampers Journey Whip Cream cardstock, and the mat with a large oval cut out of it is FSJ Watermelon Fusion cardstock.  I stamped circles with FSJ Watermelon Fusion ink from the FSJ Planner Sketch stamp set. An acetate sheet was placed behind the Watermelon Fusion mat. The zig-zag accent mat is from Pink and Main Spring Fling 6×6 paper stack. The Watermelon Fusion mat is raised using a double layer of foam tape. The bunnies are popped-out using FSJ Foam Squares Medium. The sequins in the oval are assorted sequins from my stash (Note: a horizontal strip foam tape about a 1/2″ up from the bottom of the oval to keep the sequins from “disappearing” when the card is upright). The final touch is a double bow created from SU! pink ribbon.

Such a cute card.

Here is the post featuring the last of the three cards we made this weekend. I used the card sketch from the Fusion Interlocking Hearts Card Challenge. This design features Pink and Main Rain Frogs stamp set. This set is just too cute. Here is the sketch and the image of the stamps in the Rain Frog set:

            

The frog and umbrella, rain boots, and sentiment were stamped on Spectrum Noir cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The images were colored with Spectrum Noir markers. I will admit I didn’t write down the colors I used but I think I can give a good guess as to which ones I used.

The frog – DG1, DG2, DG3, DG4. The umbrella – TN2, TN3, CT1, CT4, DR1, BP5. The raincoat and raindrops – TB1, TB2, TB3, IB1, IB2. The rainboots – CT1, CT4, DR1, BP5, TB1, TB3, TB8. The words – BP5, TB2. The frog and rainboots were cut out using a Brother Scan n Cut 2. The sentiment was fussy cut. All images were popped up using FSJ Foam Squares. The base printed cardstock and the yellow with white polka dot banner were from a Pink and Main paper pack. Love the designs. The circle mat was cut using a FSJ pierced die from FSJ Whip Cream cardstock. The embossed mat was cut from FSJ Huckleberry Fusion cardstock and embossed with a We R Memory Next Leveling embossing folder. Both mats were die cut with stitched rectangle dies (one from Simon Says and the other from My Favorite Things). The banner was matted on a piece of FSJ Watermelon Fusion cardstock. Last but not least FSJ Journey Glaze was added to the raindrops and puddle as well as the toes of the rainboots.

So cute!

I have had this brand new bundle “Fry Friends” from Fun Stampers Journey sitting around for the last three weeks. Last night, my best bud spent the night, and when we got up this morning, I said, “Do you want to make a card?” Of course he said, “YES!” So, I pulled out Fry Friends and he chose the shake and fries along with the sentiment. He wanted to make his card for his friend, Gloria. Here he is working away.

Here is his finished card.

He is very excited to give her this handmade card.

My card design was based on Freshly Made Sketches Card Challenge #271. Here is the card sketch:

I had some scraps let over from my recent Make It classes and pulled together a simple and cute card for someone special. The base of the card is FSJ Whip Cream as well as the 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ mat. The mat has been scored diagonally (my photography skills do not showcase the diagonally scored lines, but they are there). The strips of paper are cut from Watermelon Fusion and Cranberry Bliss FSJ cardstock. The pierced circle is cut from FSJ Bubble Gum cardstock with FSJ pierced circle dies. The fries and shake are colored with FSJ Color Burst Pencils. This is a super quick card to make on the go.

I think this would make a great Make It card for either a class or a party.
