Friendships Grow Speed Coloring Video w/Stampers Delights

Hi everyone! I’m on the Stampers Delights blog today with a quick coloring video with you using the new Chibi release Friendships Grow. She comes as a Clear Stamp but I’m working with her as a digital stamp which is also available in the Stampers Delights store

She is just too adorable!! I have a speed coloring video to share with you today… I always struggle with colors but this time I started with the patterned paper I wanted to use which made it so much easier!

Here’s the speed coloring video – it’s sped up 4x so this image took me about 25 minutes to complete. And I always leave the reds and pinks for last because I find that they tend to bleed a bit more easily!!

And if it doesn’t work, click here to see the video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/b2nBVUJrbsk.

And here’s the Copic colors I used for her:

Hair: E15, YR24, YR23, YR21
Skin: E21, E51, E50
Dress: RV23, RV21, R20
Boots: C7, C5, C3
Watering Can: YG17, YG13, YG01 (RV23, YR04 for flower)
Eyes: BG07, BG15, BG11


Thanks for joining me and see you again soon!

Virtual Friends Reveal Wheel Card Kit

Hey everyone! I have the assembly video up on YouTube today for the Virtual Friends Reveal Wheel Card Kit – this was a weekend workshop we did back in March and I have a limited number of card kits available so thought I’d share the assembly video so that it’s easier to put together! And I promise it’s super easy to put together!! I hand stamped, cut, and hand colored (with Copics!) the pieces so all you have to do is provide some basic supplies (plus 3d dots/foam tape) in order to assemble!!

And here’s the assembly video – total assembly time including thinking out what I was going to say took less than 20 minutes from start to finish.

It was so much fun to do and I’m so excited to put my next workshop together! I’m thinking maybe Christmas in July? haha!! Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!!

Inspiration Station Challenge #6

Hi all! It’s new challenge time over at Inspiration Station! Here’s the Inspiration Picture for Challenge #6:

And as always, feel free to use anything in the picture that inspires you!

This cutie Airel from LeAnn’s World 101 has been half colored in my stack of stamped/printed images since 2018 or so… no joke! I was so surprised and super stoked that she was still in good condition lol!! I finished coloring her the other week and then knew I had to put her on a card. What better fit than this challenge?!?

I absolutely love her headphones and I’m so suuuuuuuper happy with how her hair came out. Playing with fun and different color blends brings me so much joy!! And honestly guys, I’ve been watching a lot of hair and makeup videos on YT and FB and secretly wishing I could dye my hair something super fun and crazy like this!! Maybe after my Board tenure is over in 2022 I can go crazy and celebrate haha!! Or who knows, maybe I’ll just go for something fun but a little more subtle sooner than that. We shall see!!

Hope you come join us! Thanks for stopping by!

Kendra’s Card Challenge #2


I’m so happy to join the team over at Kendra’s Card Challenge! If you haven’t heard of it yet, it’s a quarterly challenge that uses (6) 6×6 sheets to make 15 or so cards… how fun is that?! There’s also a FB Group if you want to see other sets that people have made too!

I’ve absolutely loved the idea of One Sheet Wonders but am not always in love with the cards I end up making with the templates… this time I absolutely LOVE the cards that came out of this challenge!

So how it works is you use the provided cutting guide and card sketches (pdf file) in order to put your cards together. There’s definitely a little wiggle room in exactly HOW you follow the sketches… You’ll see that I have to flip some things around to make it work but I definitely use the sketches as a starting point!!

  • Upload pictures of your card creations on social media and use the hashtag #KendrasCardChallenge2 (on Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube).
  • One set of 15 cards counts as 1 entry.
  • You can enter up to 3 times per challenge.
  • There will be THREE randomly selected winners who might win the following prizes:
    • 🎁 Mystery Cardmaking Kit – Contains patterned paper with coordinating ephemera, cardstock, embellishments, stickers & more!
    • 🎁 Mystery Mixed Media Bundle – Contains stencils, embellishment mousse, perfect pearls, powder pigments & more!
    • 🎁 Mystery Stamp & Die bundle

I ended up making some super cute kitty cards. I also did a super sped-up video walkthrough that kinda goes through my process for doing these cards. I won’t always talk, and I apologize for saying “um” a lot… lol. TALKING IS AWKWARD, Y’ALL. Only once in a while I’ll do talking videos. Normally I just play some chill music and put words on the screen. I’ll definitely do that more often haha.

Okay and here’s the cards I made.

So for card #9 I totally had to flip this on its side because I messed up my notes in the beginning and didn’t mark this one on the cutting guide as a rotated piece. It totally still works though!

For card #10 the angled square pieces behind the circle piece just didn’t feel right so I switched it up a bit to make it work for me!

How fun was that?!?Thank you for making it all the way through this long post! And super extra thanks for stopping by! I hope you come join in the challenge. Can’t wait to see what you make!! And make sure to swing by the FB Group to see what the other designers have done too!
