ColorPlay: A Day At the Park Mini Album

How'd you like the box of cards? Fun, right? Well, today I have another project using the same Color Play A Day At the Park papers. It turned out so cute! (If you don't mind me saying so.) Sadly, something happened when I moved my pictures from my camera to my computer. Several of them went missing. And, since I no longer have the album any more I can't take more pics. But, there are still quite a few pics of the album. Enjoy!

Well, I hope you liked what I was able to share. It's an accordion album in case you weren't able to tell from the pics. Hopefully I can find my missing pics and I can fill in my post.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

ColorPlay: A Day At the Park Cards and Box

I have been super busy lately and hopefully I'll be able to share all the things I've been making with you over the next several days. First up is this fun card box including five cards I made using ColorPlay's A Day At The Park. Enjoy!
First there's the box. 
 Side view...
and the back...

 And when you lift the lid you can find the cards. As you can see there is plenty of space to add envelopes and even more cards.
 Here is a close up of each of the cards:

Fun, right? Love this paper. It is great to work with and ColorPlay offers three different paper packs to work with. The standard collection paper pack which includes two of each of six double sided papers and one page of stickers. Then there is a pack of Solids and Prints which is also two of each of six double sided papers. Last but not least, the pack of Tiny Prints, which as the name suggests, gives you many of the same prints but in a smaller size. Some of the Tiny Print papers are divided into 6x6 sections so you get four designs on one piece.

All three of the paper packs  coordinate beautifully together. I will be showing a mini album I made with a combination of all of these papers next!

Hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by.

Poinsettia Card

Hope all of my US friends had an enjoyable Thanksgiving last week. We (my family) did. Quiet with just the three of us, but lovely. Over the weekend I   colored up one of my favorite stamps and turned it into a card. The stamp came from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. Oh, how I loved seeing Claire's creations each month. I wasn't always able to by every stamp set, but I'm so happy I was able to get my hands on a few of her sets.
On first blush, you could say it's a simple card. After all the time to color and cut out the poinsettia, you'll probably change your mind. So, here's a step by step on how I colored it.
 Look closely, …  you'll see I used a very faint ink to stamp the design on to some white card. You're welcome to stamp or draw out your design using what ever color you have. I used a very faint color because I didn't want it to show when the coloring was finished.
 Then, little by little started to add color. I'll stop talking now and you can scroll the pics.

 Using the same three Copic colors I colored all of the poinsettia leaves.

 I left a handful of the bottom leaves to color in green.

 I added and blended the same seven colors (one yellow, three reds, three greens) to get the final results. Then decided to cut the image out, and mount it using foam adhesive to the front of the card.  I used a sentiment stamp from a second WMS set to add Merry Christmas to the cover of the card.
And that's it. Hope you liked it. Put those markers, watercolors, colored pencils, crayons to use and color up some fun!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Have a fantastic day!
