MFT Penguins in Paradise

So I will be the first to admit, I am not a good colorer. I want to be, I really do. But I just don't seem to have the natural talent. I have decided to just get over my anxiety and jump in head first. I own hundreds of Copic markers, Prisma color pencils, Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers, and Distress Markers, but I just don't have any confidence to use them. 

I made myself get out my Copics 
and color these little penguins. 
I did my best at shading and using several markers
 in the same color family and for a beginner 
I am actually quite proud of myself. 
To my eye I don't think they're half bad. 

Maybe next I'll practice at ink blending. 

 

Now to use all these little guys in some cards:

Twist Pop Easter Card

I recently had the opportunity to teach a friend who is new to card making this technique. She went ga ha for it!  Here is the card I made while I taught her the technique. 

I used directions from MayMay Made it. To check out her video, click here.  I also typed up directions and diagrams based on her tutorial. You'll find that below.

Doodlebug Easter Express


I made this card with the Doodlebug Easter Express 6x6 paper pad and icon sticker sheet.   I used the Everyday PopUp dies from Lawn Fawn. I think it turned out so sweet. I can't wait to give it to a loved one this weekend.

One Dozen Cards | Jen Hadfield Simple Stories

Today I'm using the Jen Hadfield "Simple Stories" 6x6 paper  pad to make some quick cards. This paper is sooooo pretty, not my usual style but nonetheless still soooo pretty. 

I used the one page with the cut-a-parts and made a grouping with a doily, paper flower, and a wood veneer heart. 

It's a simple layout I frequently use when I need to crank out a large quantity of cards. I'm going to use many of these for Mother's Day cards. 


 
 
 
Products used:
  • Jen Hadfield Home Made "Simple Stories" 6x6 pad
  • Doodlebug Designs 3" white paper doilies 
  • The Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby) paper flowers
  • Wood veneer hearts from my stash
