STAMPlorations products Gwendolyn used:
I used the stencil with Brushos before embossing it and added the thanks diecut.


I did a no line watercolouring on the gorgeous Blossom Sprays #1 stamp using my Zig clean color real brushes and added a sentiment from Fond Expressions 2.


I stamped a coffee cup from the Sketchy Coffee Cups set around the sentiment from Coffeeology 2 and coloured them in with my Zigs again. If you want to know why my cups are so shiny, come on over to my blog!



STAMPlorations products Renee used:

After making a wash of the colours used in the background, I diecut the words Peace Love Joy from the Cutplorations set of the same name. I added some glitter to it afterward for embellishment.

The stamp used here is from Christmas Bell Medley, which I stamped in various distress inks to make a beautiful background.

This is the completed project, using one stamp to make the background. I love how the green glitter cardstock enhanced the green hues of the card.


Colouring the candles in a Christmas palette.

Leaves outline in brown coloured pencils to make them easier to see and colour.

No line colouring with Prismacolor pencils.


The roses were painted using Ranger's distress inks.



STAMPlorations products Vinita used:

Created the DI background, then stamping with masking and colored the same color hues using Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils.


Stamped the image with three different DI. Colored with same color pencils. Created the label background in different inks. Stamped the sentiment.

Once I completed the stamped panel, I inlay die cut word BE sentiment and popped it up. I thought it would be cool to use the letter BE and combine it with "Be Kind" sentiment! Finished it off with a double shade twine.


I stamped the 3 images for same stamp set. Colored them with Copics and one with ZIG brushes.

On a blending panel with water splatters using DO inks and a strip of PP, I adhered those flowers with dimensions and bold die cut word you and matched it with lovely sentiment.


Lovely creations, aren't they? If you enjoyed and were inspired by today's post, come visit again in a couple of weeks because Gwendolyn, Renee, and Vinita will be back for another color-filled post!
