I have been playing with all sorts of things I have had in my collection for a long time, that have been neglected or not used at all!
So today I have my first card from my stash to share today! Today I pulled out the You Gnome Me set from MFT and kept it monocromatic with some blue pencils from my Luminance stash!
I really love the look on toned grey paper, I love seeing how much shade variation I can get while using the same pencils all the way thru.

Hey everyone! I have a fun card today. I have been getting myself out of my funk, and today’s card was nothing but fun! I feel am loving making cards again!
I stamped this girl from Miss Anya Coffee Break on a piece of toned grey paper. I decided to see what I could do with 6 pencils, one of them being black to retrace the stamped lines. It was a challenge and a great time to see all the different shades of brown I could get with the same 5 coloured pencils!
Luminance – Sepia

Hey all! Welcome back to day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm! We are nearing the new release!
Today’s set is called The More the Merrier! It is full of the cutest little critters ever!
Let’s talk about this card! I had a fantastic time colouring up the little hedge hog and door! and for some reason while I had them all masked out I decided it was a door to no where? Notice the blue sky and green grounding. But, I was so happy with how it looked all put together that I did not want to change it and try and make it look like the inside or outside of a house. So I left it the way it was. I am really happy with how it turned out.
I have been doing so much painting with my watercolours lately, that it was so much fun to pull out my colored pencils and colour this one up!

Hey everyone! We are back for another set of previews for The Greeting Farm! This month’s release is amazing!!
I pulled out all my coloured pencils for this one. One thing I love about this medium is how friendly they all play together. Prismacolor, Polychromos and Luminance. I can mix them in endless ways to create tons of looks!
I think added a little bit of detail with a white Posca marker and added some stitching to finish it off. The sentiment comes from the Holiday Wishes stamp set.

Hey everyone! Welcome back to the second day of previews for The Greeting Farm! Today we are changing things up and have a couple sentiment dies to share with you! Both are birthday themed!
I stamped out one of the girls from the new Cheeky kit that was release a little while back and coloured her up with my coloured pencils. After that I picked a yellow cardstock that coordinated with her top and die cut out this fun sentiment! I am over the moon with these big word dies that The Greeting Farm is coming out with!

Hey everyone! This one took 3 days to complete, but I am in love with the way it came out.
I have wanted this set, Wallpaper Art from Altenew, since it first came out. I finally got my hands on it. I had this vision of white flowers on kraft paper. Which meant coloured pencils.
It turned out exactly as I imagined, and during the 30 day colouring challenge it fit in perfect. Took a few days to complete, with a little colouring a day.
Hey everyone! Today I have a guest post for Stamping Bella! I am so thrilled to be guest designing for them, it really is a dream. I have loved the stamps this company releases for years!
For my first card, I pulled out Curvy Girl Eats Cake and my coloured pencils. I haven’t shown my pencils much love lately, but this was the perfect opportunity.
I stamped her out with a light colour ink, to give the no lines colouring look, once everything was finished. Then I went in and coloured it up with my Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.
Once I got her all coloured up, I decided I wanted the sentiment to look really sketchy as well. So I stamped it with the same light coloured ink, then traced over it with my black pencils to give it the sketchy look.
Thanks so much for stopping by
Hey all! It is time for a month long challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps! As always the theme is ANYTHING BUT A CARD!
I love all these pretty planners that everyone has and decided I want to start decorating mine! Soooo here is my spread for this week. I filled in some of the info but not all of it!
I coloured up the Sweet as Can Bee set in similar colours to layout and added them on. They are a perfect fit on an insanely busy week!
Check out the skrappy creations by our Krafty Team for your inspiration!
Hey all! Today I have a super fun pencil card and video to share with you all! It has been quite a while since I have shared a pencil video!
I love the slightly sketchy feel to this card, and how the image isn’t completely solid and feels storybook wise!
