Join the 30 day coloring challenge, starting June 1st

It's that time again when Kathy Racoosin does her wonderful 30 day color challenge. You can read all about it here.

Anyone can join. The idea is to color just a little bit every day.

During the challenge there's lots of giveaways and other fun stuff. But the best part about it is the wonderful online community that is so encouraging. Follow on Instagram or FaceBook. I do Instagram because I find it easier to post and follow others. Post your coloring and tag it with #thedailymarker30day and just play along.

Altenew dahlia stencils

I totally fell in love with Altenew's Dahlia layering stencil and had to get it. I cut out some masks with a large post-it note pad (full stick) and could then easily mask off the flowers and leaves and use different colors. I used distress ink and an ink blending tool.
I cut the finished panel down a bit and layered it with a piece of black card stock. The stamped sentiment reads "Thanks so much" in Swedish and is from Slöjd-Detaljer. I also added some Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh and some sequins from a Neat and Tangled pack.


The finished panel was cut with the 2nd largest rectangle die from a Hero Arts set. I also cut a black A2-sized panel with the largest rectangle die in that same set. I offset the panel to one corner for something different. The stamped sentiment reads "Thanks so much" in Swedish and is from Slöjd-Detaljer.


The finished panel was cut with the largest rectangle die from a Hero Arts set. The stamped sentiment reads "A big hug" in Swedish and is from Slöjd-Detaljer. I also added some sequins from a Neat and Tangled pack.


The finished panel was cut with the 2nd largest rectangle die from a Hero Arts set. I also cut a black strip of cardstock and attached it to the left side. The finished card is a bit smaller than an standard A2-sized card. The sentiment is die cut with a Lawn Fawn die.

Happy village pivot pop-up

The Lawn Fawn set Happy village really created a huge craving and I've been creating with it for a while now. I wanted to make a pivot pop-up card using these cute little houses and here it is;

I used papers from the Perfectly plaid Spring collection and the stamps and dies from Happy village. The "Bon voyage" comes from another Lawn Fawn set called "Plane and simple".

Newton is taking a bath

I received #happymail from Newton's Nook the other day with stamps and stencils. I decided to use them directly for this edition of the Inky Paws challenge which is a sketch challenge;
This is how my card turned out. I used stamps from Newton's Summer Vacation and the Ocean waves stencil. The window die is from My Favorite Things. I used Zig clean color real brush markers to color the images.



The window is mounted with foam tape for a little dimension. I added some clear droplets from Pretty Pink posh for some extra detail.

The scuba kitty also have some Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on them for some extra glitter.
