Talented Trio from Stampin’ Up!

A trio of notecards created using Talented Trio from Stampin’ Up!

Good morning folks, and how are you today? If you have kids are you surviving the school holidays? And even if you don’t are you surviving them? 🙂

This morning I have a simple little set of notecards to share with you, that I made for my niece. I’m looking after her and her brother this week, so we have a house full.

I love the Talented Trio from Stampin’ Up! for all the colouring possibilities. You can watercolour with it, colour with pencils or markers, use ink and a blender pen too….

I used colour pencils for this set and kept the cards very CAS – clean and simple.

I used the Washi tape punch to create the banner for the sentiment. I must admit I was a little skeptical when I first saw the punch but I bought it anyway! And guess what? I love it!!! Totally hooked now!

Anyways, I’ve got to dash. Got 4 kids to entertain! Hope you liked today’s projects. Thanks for stopping by. Check out this week’s weekly deals before you go.

Adult colouring using Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You

Adult colouring using Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You. Create a beautiful set of Thank You cards coloured with colour pencils – colouring in is not just for kids!

Good morning peeps, how’s you today? It’s a bit dull and dreary here but I have some lovely bright flowers to share with you this morning! I’m stupidly excited about these. You’ll have to fogive me, but my inner child was released with a vengeance when I saw this video by Lydia Fiedler on her Understand Blue blog! Serioiusly I did not know that you could colour on black paper or card stock with colour pencils! How did I not know that? I had some colour pencils, which I’d bought on a whim at Hobbycraft and I gave it a go – they worked fairly well but were too waxy for my liking and have been relegated to a practice set to use with my Adult Colouring books (when I get the time!).

So I ummhed and ahhhed for a day or two before diving in and buying a set of the pencils Lydia used in her video. (I also bought another set of a different brand, after watching a couple of reviews, and I love them both – luckily!).

Anyway here’s my cards. I started off with the Magnolia flower from the Remarkable You set, trying to achieve a realistic colour for the flower – hmmmm not sure I managed it too well.
