Valentine's Pizza Card | Prismacolor Colored Pencils


Michael's received some new stamps in the Recollections brand recently. I liked this one the best. There are a lot of pizza themed stamps out there lately and they are all so cute. (Pizza is my comfort food).

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week is add a sentiment. Check out what others have done and all the info here.

Anyone participating in the 30 Day Daily Marker challenge? I'm making it more of a point to color more often but not trying to do every single day. This was colored for Day 1. After the Daily December Challenge I'm not ready to dive back in to anther whole month challenge.


I stamped the pizza's in light gray ink and the mushrooms. The tomatoes and bell peppers were stamped with green and red ink. Gives a different look besides stamping everything in black ink and coloring between the lines.

It was hard to decide on what to do with the colored panel of pizzas. I didn't want to cover all that hard work up, using dies in a inlaid fashion worked well. I cut 3 sets of the stitched outline heart and the inside heart then glued and stacked them together. Inked the edges with a black marker and it gives just enough dimension, makes it mail friendly and doesn't take away from all the coloring.

Did you get a new set of Prismacolors for Christmas or another brand? Check out my favorite colored pencil storage (BTSKY) down below under the Amazon links. I bought the Silver metallic one and it is so nice. I have several of these cases for Copics, pencils and other writing pens.

I dig you | Washi tape background | Watercolor Pencils

Here's an easy way to make a pattern paper design. The background of this card is made out of 4 different styles of washi tape. I don't have an abundance of overly popular tape but I do have a few rolls and my mom was sweet when we were out shopping the other day and picked up a set of washi tape for her and me.



I took a piece of Neenah cardstock and lined up the washi tape in a diagonal pattern. Then ran it through my Big Shot with a We are Memory Keepers embossing folder. By doing this you add some dimensional one of a kind pattern paper.

The inside simply says "I dig you" and is from the same stamp set as the dog images.


This was inspired by the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge: pattern paper.

I'd like to experiment more with this technique and use other colors and embossing folders. Because, lets face it... I have a lot of embossing folders that should be used more often and now my washi tape collection has grown a little. =)

The blue with magenta foil washi tape and the magenta with gold foil washi tape are both from Little B. I however could only find a link for the magenta with gold foil.

Art Journal Page | Santoro & Dylusions | Watercolor Pencils


I'm getting another, quick, Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge entry in before time is up. Art Journaling is not new to me but I normally do not show what I create. For me it is a creative outlet that I can just be free with, but I rather enjoyed this page and since it was inspired by the challenge prompt "Winter Blues" I thought I would make a post.



Using a mix of the Santoro Gorjuss stamp "Sweet Tea" and Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions "Doodle Delight" I colored them with watercolor pencils and fussy cut each image out.



This is the same Traveler's Journal that I did the Daily December Prompts in. I really love it. It was worn well. The corners are a little frayed and that was because I was carrying it around in my purse for a while.

I was happy with out the watercolor Pencils reacted with the thin paper in this insert. The one I'm working with now is a inexpensive blank Traveler's Journal insert from Michaels.

The paper definitely warps because of using water with the watercolor pencils but it is not so bad that the other side is wrecked.

Unfortunately the Santoro Gorjuss stamp "Sweet Tea" is hard to find through my normal links. I did by the one I had at Craft Warehouse so check your local stores.
