Hey friends! Long time to type/talk! We are back for a new year and I have 363 days to figure out what I wanna do with this blog and youtube. I really miss making cards so lets kick things off there!
Today I pulled out Wplus9’s Flora and Fauna 3 and made a card! And yes I filmed it for my youtube channel!
I have been doing so much with my watercolours last year that you didn’t get to see, I decided to grab something different do this one all in coloured pencils! I am going to be honest this was not a fast process. This card took me over 3 hours. Because I had 3 hours of footage to edit down for todays video!
I really love all the small details when it comes to one layer cards, shadows under the focal peice, the shading to make it look slightly sunken boarder. This one was just a blast! I love the little gouache addition to help the sentiment pop and brighten up the centers of the flowers!
You can watch the entire process below!
Thank you all for stopping by, even though I have not been around! I appreciate you all so much!
Hey friends! Today I again was playing with my Kraft paper, Copics and Coloured Pencils. It has been my jam the last few days. They take me about 3 mornings of colouring before work!
So I masked out the little van and put the tree in behind it. After that stamping the sun to the right side of the paper. All using Ink on 3 No Lines ink. I really like it on the kraft paper for this look.
I do really love the white highlight I added between the images and the blue sky.
Hey friends! Today I pulled out the Magical Dragons set from MFT and my copics and coloured pencils on some kraft paper.
I stamped it out with come really light ink for the no lines look. Then added in the background and detail in the dragon with my coloured pencils. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep track of all the coloured I used, cuz it was just some late night colouring for 100% fun!
I added the cloud in the background with a stencil then added the colour after. A few small enamel dots with a small sentiment finished off this sweet little card!
Hey all! Welcome to the June release for C.C. Designs! We have a bunch of new super sweet images to share with you!
I am sharing my first project of a super clean and simple card using the New Snow Swissie! I love her ever so much.
I decided to colour her up using my coloured pencils, something I have not picked up in a very long time! I had so much fun playing with them. I die cut it out with the Scalloped Rectangle die to put her on the card front.

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!
Pencils used: Luminance – Sepia Sepia 50% Brown Ocher 10% White Faber Castell – Bister Black
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! I have been doing tons of colouring lately. But not a lot that I can show… yet!
So for today, I pulled out the Bring Out The Sunshine set from My Favorite Things, and coloured her up on Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. I haven’t coloured up anything on kraft cardstock in a long time.
I recently purchased a set of 20 Caran D’ache Luminance coloured pencils, and 4 additional colours to that. So I mixed them with my Polychromos to colour up this little lady.
My verdict on the Luminance pencils after their first use… I will be buying more. Lol I am an art supply junkie!
