Color Me Happy!

Coloring is not just for children! 
Adult coloring books are all the rage and are everywhere! 
It has been proven that art therapy (coloring) can lower 
blood pressure, train your brain to focus, and helps with stress.  

Why spend all that time coloring in a book?  
Color with purpose on beautiful greeting cards!

These sets of eight cards with a matching storage box would make a wonderful gift to give someone who loves to color or to keep and color for yourself! 
Your choice of sentiments and design theme. 
Add on cards available. 

Find your favorite markers and color pencils and 
get ready to de-stress!
No markers or pencils?  No problem, I can help you there with the amazing Shinhan Touch Twin Markers and the CTMH Watercolor Pencils!  The Tombow Blending Pen works great with the Watercolor Pencils!

Choose Daisy Florals, Fun Fireworks, or Fancy Paisley.
Sentiments: It's Your Day, Thanks so Much, Happy Birthday to You, and/or 
You Mean the Work to Me!

Decorated Card Box and 8 Cards $24 plus $6.80 postage.
8 additional cards to add to your set are $12 + $1 more postage.
If you live local to me and would like to pick up your order, I'll add 2 bonus cards to your card box order!

Here's to LOTS of coloring happiness!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

A Bunch of Love

Oh, how I love our Seasonal Expressions supplement catalogs!  The newest copy is the Seasonal Expressions 2 and it is packed with beauty!  Beautiful papers, stamps and accessories!  
It's perfect from cover to cover!

Get your FREE copy of this awesome catalog 
with your first order this month!

Here's the first card I made when my new products arrived.  The Florence papers feature gorgeous colors such as Flaxen, Peacock, Poppy, Ruby, Saffron and Whisper.  So pretty! 

I used the super duper handy dandy Thin Cuts which match the
"A Bunch of Love" stamp set images.  They make life SO much easier!  Just run them through the Cuttlebug with your paper choice and ta-da, lots of cut out shapes ready to stamp with my favorite black Memento pad and color!  Love it!

I used the CTMH Watercolor Pencils and a Blending Pen to color the flowers.  The daisy cutouts are from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge in Poppy and Peacock cardstock.  I finished it off by sprinkling on a little sparkle with the new Florence Sequins and some Bitty Sparkles.

But Where's the Cake?

Here's to thinking outside the box or in this case, square!  This "Celebrate with Cake" May Stamp of the Month has a cute hand drawn style with lots of potential and versatility!  I used a cake layer shape and gave it a spin in all directions creating a background for this cheerful Birthday card.

After all the squares were stamped, I added pastel colors of watercolor washes to each shape.  When dry, I stamped the little roses in random squares and painted them with soft pink and green paint.  

I love how the new Calypso Sequins add just the right amount of shine!
