Coloring Foiled Roses with Alcohol Markers + A look back to our February Digi Release

Our February Digi Release had some amazing floral stamps! You know how much I love flowers! And I have been playing with different mediums to stretch the use of my digital stamps. My card for today features floral stamps from -You are Loved-.

This color combo ruled my craft room this month! I love the contrast! I colored the images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. The trick to get a clean foiled finish without any stains from the markers is to actually colored the flowers first and foil them once they're done. (Images were printed on laser printer and foiled with Deco Foil on a laminator.)

I hope you have a chance to try out this super easy tip! We have now over 40 digital stamp sets available and our shop continues to grow, so I know you'll find something to suit your cardmaking style so you can experiment with all these fun techniques we've shared along the way.

For more inspiration using our digital stamps follow our monthly blog hops. The creative team comes up with beautiful ideas all the time! We will be back with new stamps and more project ideas on March 1st, so please mark your calendars. See you then!

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
