Your Next Stamp Autumn Leaves





Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

I love all things fall!  The cooler weather, the changing leaves, and
getting pumpkins at the pumpkin patch.  When I saw this adorable fall
stamp from Your Next Stamp I knew I had to color it.  I just love the cute
puppy and birds along with the fantastic fall leaves.  The stamp set is called
Autumn Leaves and it was a great way to practice coloring the fur on the puppy.

I also used some fantastic dies from The Stamp Doctor.  Here I am using her
A2 Card Layers #1 dies.  These dies create the perfect A2 sized card layer and when
used with the smaller dies creates a 1/8" matting.  It make cutting out my layers so easy now.
I am going to get so much use out of this die set.  There is also a coordinating die
set called A2 Card Layers #2 dies which when combined creates 1/16" matting.
So many matting sizes to create.

Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

Today I am using this adorable image from Di's Digi Stamps!  The image 
is called Whoo Loves You. I decided to use this image to practice

Whimsy Stamps - Cottage Garden



Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

What is better then relaxing in the garden on a spring day?  Absolutely nothing!

I am slowly adding to my garden every year and this image is a great
inspiration on what I hope mine will look like someday.  I love that flowers
and trees come in so many colors and textures you can really make
your space into a work of art.

I am using this beautiful image from DoveArt Studios available through Whimsy Stamps.
The image is called Cottage Garden.  I used a lot of different Copic Markers to color
this image today but really you could use just a few and it would come out just as
stunning!  I have been doing a lot of work in my garden and hopefully it won't be
raining this weekend so I can add some gladiolus bulbs to my garden beds
for another dose of color.  Being in the garden is so relaxing!

Power Poppy Tulips



Welcome back to Robin's Crafting Nest!

Have you considered taking online Copic Marker coloring classes?  
If you haven't you should give it a try.  I just took a fantastic class by Rhea Weigand
at PassionatePaperCreations.com.  Rhea teamed up with Marcella Hawley from Power Poppy to develop an amazing class using the Tulips digital image.

I learned so much in this class and really enjoyed learning new Copic skills.

Here is my final card using what I learned in this fun class





For all the details for this card jump over and sign up for Rhea's class at PassionatePaperCreations.com

I hope you enjoy the class and the beautiful cards you can make from it in the future.

Thanks for Visiting!
