2019 Year in Colour!

Hi Everyone! Here is my year in colour! What colour is your favourite?

The 30 day Colouring Challenge Roadtrip @ MFT Stamps in Eustice Florida

Hi Everyone! Today I'm sharing an event that I had the opportunity to attend! It was the Coloring Challenge Road Trip by the wonderful Kathy Racoosin! This Roadtrip was held in Eustice Florida at the My Favorite Things Boutique on December 6th & 7th 2019. Each day was a seperate session so you did not have to attend both days. I did because I was travelling from Canada. 


Here is the entrance to the My Favorite Things Store! It's a crafty wonderland! Check out my IG Highlights to see inside! 

Check out the clipboard provided to all attendees by @kathyrac! 

Kathy is sharing her techniques for colouring skin and hair.

Of course I had to snap some pics with some crafty peeps! @mzdayajoy and @pocono.pam

The amazing @kathyrac & I.

If you ever get the opportunity to attend a Coloring Challenge Roadtrip just do it. Don't debate about it just do it. The cost of the event goes to a charity and the crafty friends that you will make is 100% worth it. I have met many people in real life that I would not have had the opportunity to without @kathyrac's roadtrips. So when she posts new locations and dates (the daily marker blog) see if there is one close to you and run...don't walk. It definitely is worth it!

Got Joy Creations Holiday Series 2019

Hey everyone. It’s Karen from Cards Stamp’s and Ink here with you and I’m taking over Dana’s blog and Youtube channel to share in the fun of Dana’s Got Joy Creations Holiday Series for 2019. Make sure you are following this series for amazing holiday inspiration, giveaways, discount codes and don’t forget to leave a comment below to qualify for all of the giveaways. There will also be tutorials and cards shared by Dana as well and she will have a few surprises to share with you! 

Today I decided to use the Oversized Merry die from Waffle Flower! I pulled out some Yupo paper and my Deception Alcohol ink pearls from Ranger. I wet the yupo with the blending solution first and then added my alcohol ink pearls. I used an air blower to help move the ink and solution around on my yupo paper.  I decided to make a second panel since I was having so much fun! Once the ink was where I wanted it I left it to dry. Then I used the Waffle Flower oversized Merry to cut out the middle of the paper. I popped out the die cut and glued it to my card base made from 110 pound Neenah cardstock with Gina K Designs Connect glue.  I made sure to save the inner pieces of the R’s and Y so that I could use them to make a second card from the same piece of Yupo.  I added a few gems from Pretty Pink Posh and voila! 4 Christmas cards! Let me know if you decide to try this!

The GJC Holiday Card Series runs from November 17 to December 14.  Each day Dana will have a Guest Designer right on the Got Joy Creations blog sharing their holiday card ideas just like I did today. Hopefully you will find something to inspire you to create holiday cards for your family and friends this year. Follow along on her YouTube Channel and make sure you leave comments on each designer's posts or videos for chances to win.

Thanks for stopping by!
