Simon Says Stamp: Among the Stars Blog Hop

Hello Crafters! 


Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Among the Stars Blog Hop! 

If you've been hopping along you should have arrived from the fantastic Suzy Plantamura's blog. I'm a huge fan of Suzy's Paintables. Such cute images just begging to be colored :) 
In fact, i love them so much that's actually what I'm going to share with you today. 

Before we get to the card let me remind you that Simon Says Stamp is generously giving away a new product that hasn't been released yet to one random winner from each stop on the hop. You just have to comment to be entered to win so make sure you're leaving some love for these talented ladies as your hopping along! 

Let's get to that card shall we? 


Eeep. These floppers are just too cute. I love Suzy's whimsical style and the pre-drawn images allow me to sit down and just color without having to think about layout or composition. They are the best to just relax and have fun. 

You can see the coloring in the video below. I had two pieces of footage disappear on me, so sorry! They aren't huge pieces so I think it'll be okay. 

  

I know it's a long one but coloring can take some time haha. If you're just buzzing right through the hop feel free to stop back and watch the video. Maybe bring a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. It's going to be a minute. 


Your next stop on the hop is my dear sweet friend Debby Hughes. I know she'll blow your socks off. It's what she does. 

If you stopped in the middle of the hop or get lost along the way here is the whole line up. 



Thank you so much for stopping by!!

  8. Flip Flopping goodness. Like the coloring & how the scene is done. As far as what am I looking forward to this Summer I'm hoping to go to the StockYards in Ft Worth TX which I've never been to and trek to the Dallas & Ft Worth Zoos. Have a Bee-utiful day!

  9. OK, so I won't talk about your mad colouring skills, Kelly, since it will sound like I keep repeating myself. What I will say is that your SHADING skills are OUT OF THIS WORLD ... that detail makes the words look like they're popping off the page! (OK, let's skip the fact that shading is part of coloring too) ;-)

  69. I live in flip flops - love the card - as to summer - I'm going on my first cruise - ever - with my husband to the caribbean - this summer - he says it is a one and only trip because he will never get on a boat again, but I'm hoping that once he's on it he'll love it - I am soooooo excited. So basically I'm wishing my summer away because we don't leave until September, I know that's horrible, but I am so excited.

    I love the way you color with Copics, especially the sand!! Wow!! It's gorgeous! I think the coloring cards are the best idea! I have a couple of adult coloring books, but I always feel like I'm wasting my time when I could be making a card! Now these allow us to do both!
    Thanks so much for sharing your talents!
