Brew It Anya from Greeting Farm and Spectrum Noir

It's International Coffee Day so I couldn't let the day go without a card.    Sharing Brew it Anya from the Greeting Farm and colored with Spectrum Noir products.  

I used Tri Blend- Brown Grey Blend, and Fair Skin Blend.   Also used the original markers- TB1, TB3, TB5, TB7, MB1, MB3, DR1, DR3, DR5, DR7, BG1, Colorless Blender and then Illustrators- TN1, TN3, TN 5.

I used some coffee themed paper from my stash that I had gotten from Club Scrap.   I used a real coffee jacket for behind the image.   I also used a paper doily from my stash, and some heart shaped gems also added great finishing touches.

I hope you enjoyed.   See you soon!

Butterfly Meadow from Crafter's Companion

I read a quote once that really resonated for me- "without change there would be no butterflies"- this is so very true.    I love butterflies so I was so excited to color this stamp up from Crafter's Companion- Butterfly Meadow.

I stamped the butterfly 2x with Finesse by Spectrum Noir- Alcohol Proof Ink in Noir Black on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest Card Pack.   

I colored with Spectrum Noir Original Coloring System markers:  BT1, BT3, BT4, BT6, IG3, IG5

I added the Crafter's companion Scalloped Filligree border die and added it in between my 2 butterflies, which I fussy cut out of the cardstock.

I also used some Black Matt Cardstock from Crafter's Companion which is my hands down favorite black cardstock.

I used some teal cardstocks from my stash, as well as a few gems from Studio Katia to add the finishing touches.

I hope you enjoyed!

See you soon!

The Black Widow from Simpy B. Stamps and Spectrum Noir

I am back!   I took about a month off from blogging as I underwent a hysterectomy last month and the recovery definitely took some time.  Although I still have a ways to go, I am so excited to be back to my craft room more and able to do more blogging!

Today I share The Black Widow Digi from Simply B. Stamps.  This is my favorite time of year.   I love Fall, Halloween and Christmas and I am so excited to get into full gear on all of these projects.

I used Spectrum Noir Original markers:
FS9, FS4, FS1
IG1,IG3, IG5, IG6, IG10
PP2, PP5
Triblends: Purple Blend, Brown Grey Blend--- If you haven't yet tried these markers- they are amazing!!

Sparkle Pens: Emerald Green, Soft Jade (fpr her glass) Harvest moon (I used this to add a bit more color to the spider) and Orchid for the Bat.

The pink and the orange paper are Crafter's Companion Luxury Cardstock 

I also used Crafter's companion Black Matt paper and Neenah Classic Crest for the image.

I used some pinstripe pattern paper from my stash.

I used some ribbon and some enamel dots and glitter spider button to add the finishing touches to my card.

I hope that you enjoyed!   See you soon with another fun card!
