The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 20


Today we are colouring Bun Intended by The Ink Road. I coloured my bun with Copic markers, cut her out with a circle die and then put the die cut back into the card mounted on foam tape. Easy peasy, clean and simple. 

I hope you excuse my sassiness today, but I think this card is actually really fun and perfect for that warrior in your life!


Thanks for popping in again today!

The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 15


Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. Especially to my Dad, this picture was taken this past January on my Dad's 90th birthday.

He has always been a rock star to me, the most unselfish man I have ever known who would do anything for his family and his friends. He taught me compassion, empathy, how to love unconditionally and how to laugh in goods times and in bad! Love him to the moon and back! 

Happy Father's Day Dad!

I am playing a bit of catch up with the challenge. Things got busy the past few days so I have fallen a bit behind. For Day 15 we used the cute octopus set from Jillibean Soup to colour with alcohol ink markers. I have been trying to make cards each day this challenge because I find if I just colour I never seem to go back later to make the card. I made a shaker card for the ocean scene, I probably could have filled it a bit more but once that lid goes on, it stays on--lol.


Enjoy your day!

The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 13


Today we are colour Essentials by Ellen City Lady! These ladies have been so fun to colour with all their cute clothes and accessories! The Essentials by Ellen City Lady designer dies cut all the images out perfectly allowing you to create some of the most fun scenes.

All my images were copic coloured but her pants. I masked off her pants and sponged with Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink and the I sponged the same ink onto the cross hatch pattern from the Essentials by Ellen Pattern Play stamp set and stamped over top of the already sponged pants to create the subtle pattern. The Pattern Play clear stamps are a must in my opinion, so many ways you can use all these patterns in all of your stamping!


Thanks for coming by again today!

Beach Lady


Another new Essentials by Ellen Leading Lady - Beach Lady! I just love her sweet dress and fun accessories. I think this month's Leading Ladies might be my favourite yet.

I sponged a background with Antique Linen and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. Then I added a sentiment from previously released Make it Beautiful. I die cut her and the accessories I was going to use with the Essentials by Ellen Leading Lady - Beach Lady designer dies. Then I coloured the lady with Copic markers and adhered her to the card with foam tape for some dimension.


Thanks for dropping in today!

Muse #270 and The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 11


Happy Monday! Time for new challenge at Muse!
Doing something a little different this week. The pretty Studio Katia Lovely Blooms (SSS|SK) has been coloured with pencil crayons on toned grey cardstock. In Canada we call coloured pencils, pencil crayons--so many memories of getting a new package for back to school each year. I coloured the image with Prismacolor Premiere Colored Pencils.

Now don't let the inspiration make you nervous, remember that at Muse your card is inspired by the Muse card. So you chose how to interpret it.


The sentiment is from the Studio Katia Birthday Greetings stamp set (SSS|EH|SK).


I can't wait to see how this inspires you!

Essentials by Ellen June Release


Yay it's Sunday and the new Essentials by Ellen June Release is available for purchase at Ellen Hutson LLC! I had the pleasure this month of playing with the newest Leading Ladies, this month there are three being released.

I did a sneak peak earlier this week of the new Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies - Woodsy Lad clear stamps by Brandi Kincaid! She was stamped and die cut using the new Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies - Woodsy Lady designer dies. I made a fun background for her by smooshing three Distress Oxide inks onto a Bristol Smooth cardstock panel. I used Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint and Broken China. Really easy, I laid all three colours on my craft may beside each other but not touching and then spritzed with water and one swipe!


I used the newly released Essentials by Ellen Pattern Pattern Play clear stamps by Brandi Kinkaid to make a camouflage pattern on her vest! This is a fantastic set and is so perfect for adding pattern to and of your Leading Ladies clothing and accessories!


I created an inverse mask for her vest so that I could stamp on the vest and not on the rest of her. There is a tiny leaf stamp in the Pattern Play set that I flipped over and used the back of the stamp to randomly stamp all over her vest with three shades of green ink and two shades of brown ink until I filled in all the space. I removed the mask and voila--a camouflage patterned vest!

Woodsy Lady comes with all kinds of cute 'woodsy' accessories.


I have a feeling that all this month's Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies and going to fly off the shelf. Get your before they are gone. I have provided affiliate links below for you, affiliate links used at not cost to you.  I will be back later to share another card made with the new Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies - Beach Lady!

The Daily Marker 30 Day - Day 9


Yay it's Saturday, hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Today we are colouring  the Stampers Anonymous/Tim Holtz Hipster cat (SSS|EH)

A bit out of my comfort zone for colouring but I grabbed Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint and Black Soot Distress Oxide inks to watercolour with. I love watercolouring with Distress Oxide ink, I am always happy with the results. When I finished colouring him I did not tint his shades and you could see his green eyes but this cool hipster needed some tint so I went back in with the Black Soot and upped his cool factor a bit!


Pop back tomorrow when I will be sharing the new Essentials by Ellen Leading Ladies when they go live!
