Stained Glass Peacock 30 Day Coloring Challenge

TO UPLOAD YOUR COLORING go to:…/day-1-the-daily-marker-30-…/  or here on Instagram - or here on Facebook (FB is a closed group). Please remember to use the hashtag #thedailymarker30day and tag @kathyrac. 

And be sure to visit all the sponsors blog that are participating in the blog hop for this FUN challenge and great give-a-ways!  Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring a $20 gift card!
Here's my card for the challenge...

OH MY WORD, how I LOVE the 3 NEW Whimsy Stamps Stained Glass Collection stamps!  If you love to color these stamps are definitely for you.  And once you color them they are basically an entire A2 sized card on their own, you really don't even need a sentiment unless you want to add one.

This is Stained Glass Peacock and I used the following Copic markers to color it
 (all are available at the Whimsy Stamps store):

BG000, BG0000, BG53, BG57, 
E27, E35, 
Y15, Y17, Y11, 
G21, G24, 
YR15, YG03, YG17

This card was really easy to do and it was so relaxing coloring it.  It looks like a very involved card but really the stamp does all the work and you can color it with any of your favorite coloring mediums with really zero technique needed.

After I colored the Stained Glass Peacock I just trimmed it leaving approx. a 1/4" border all the way around and matted it onto a white card base and called it done.
Be sure to visit Whimsy Stamps for a list of all the sponsors on the blog hop and have FUN with your coloring!

An Unbreakable Bond FurEver

Have you seen the Rainbow Bridge Collection from Whimsy Stamps?  I designed these sets as a tribute to the furbabies that I have lost and for all others who have had to endure the same.  One of the best things about these sets is they're not only pet sympathy but they have other everyday and pet lover sentiments in them too.

This card base is 5.25 x 5.25 and for the background I used one of my all-time favorite rubber stamps the Farmhouse Fabric background.  I inked it up with a kraft colored ink and stamped it on white card stock.

I drew in the floor line with a pen then used distress inks to watercolor the image which is from the new set An Unbreakable Bond.  


On some scrap watercolor paper I added a little bit of soft blue ink then cut it out with the FurEver Friends die set for the sentiment. Then I cut it out two more times from plain watercolor paper and glued them together stacked on top of each other for more dimension.

I layered the image panel on a kraft matte then onto the card base where I had already added the Farmhouse Fabic background to.  I know making sympathy cards can be difficult but they really do mean so much to the recipient and a handmade one with heartfelt sentiments means even more.  Here are the products I used to make this card:

PAPER DOOR Enjoy the Journey

If you've been waiting for a masculine PAPER DOOR kit then you're going to love this box!

The stamp set has an old fashioned steam engine and a bunch of vintagy sentiments that can be used on all kinds of cards.

There's even a set of four Notched Rectangle dies included in this months box!  The one I used on this card is the smallest one in the set.

You can see all the contents of this PAPER DOOR Enjoy the Journey kit HERE (click on your country and there's an unboxing video toward the bottom of the page):

The papers in this kit are full of texture and richness, there are 3 each of 8 different papers.  I like using two for my projects and saving one to drool over (ha). 

Open the door to creativity and Enjoy the Journey with PAPER DOOR.

Making Scripture Waves


I started this card off with the Falling Dots embossing folder on a teal cardstock.  And I used the NEW Wavy Edgers die set for the stitched scalloped top portion of  the card.

I cut the circles with the Shaker Maker Combo Die set once from chipboard for the outer circle and once from white card stock for the center.

I sponged on some teal ink on the white circle with the NEW Making Waves Stencil this is such a cool stencil, it has 3 different wave options all on one stencil.

The sentiment is from the NEW Stained Glass Scriptures clear stamp set.  This is a lovely set with several different scriptures all of which fit the new Stained Glass Tiffany Window and are great for  inside sentiments too.

There are lots of great summer products out this month for you to enjoy from Whimsy Stamps.  Happy almost summer :O).

Puppy Paws Birthday

Eeee I love this new rubber Puppy Paws Background stamp, it's just the right size paw print pattern! And I also used (one of my new go-to favs) the Gingham Background stamp too.  

The doggy is from the FurEver Friends die set, I cut him (or her) out once in black then cut out an extra collar from silver glitter paper.   

I used my Crop-o-dile and punched a small circle from the same glitter paper for his tag. 

All three sentiments are from the new Everyday Scripted Sentiments set which covers lots of occasions and has lots of combinations of words.

And I also add the same silver glitter paper under the Gingham panel.

 The thought bubble is actually a cloud from the Angel Blessings set which fit the feel of this card perfectly.

And the final added touch is the stitching at the bottom which is from the Straight Edgers die set ...  another of my new go-to favorite products.

Have a great day!
