Day 6: 30 Day Coloring Challenge

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Birthday Card, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends!

Today I have my Day 6 cupcake project to share with you. You may be wondering, where is Day 5? Well, I actually haven’t finished that card yet! It’s in progress so will be coming soon.

I found that even though I colored the cupcakes in a certain order that my projects may be happening out of order!

Instead of cutting out my cupcake, this time I just colored the background with a blue caliart alcohol marker to make a super quick birthday card. Then I added some glossy accents to the strawberry, wink of stella and sequins!

I finished up with a blue rectangle with a vellum overlay for the sentiment.

As a reminder, I used the Colorado Craft Company Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake for all 30 days of the coloring challenge and I paired it with sentiments from My Favorite Things Sugar-Coated Sentiments clear stamp set. I think this two stamps pair perfectly!

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

Day 4: 30 Day Coloring Challenge & ALL Coloring up to Day 12!!

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Birthday Card, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends,

One more blog post today. This one has both my Day 4 coloring and completed card and ALL my coloring up to day 12.

First up, here is my day 4 card.

I love this little card! It measures 4 1/2 x 4. This is still the same stamp from Colorado Craft Company/My Sweet Friend but this time I stamped the bottom only and then drew the rest of the cupcake on the top.

I think this sentiment goes perfectly with this little cupcake or really muffin…lol. I also used a We R Memory Keepers star embossing folder to create the background.

Now here are all my cupcakes from Day 5 to today, Day 12!!! Cards will be coming soon!

Day 5

Day 6

Day 7

Day 8

Day 9

Day 10 & Day 11

For Day 10 & 11, I used the exact same colors. When I compare my chocolate frosting to Day 2, I am amazed at the difference. I really like how both Day 10 & 11 came out. Sometimes I think the strawberry looks better on 10 and the frosting looks better on 11 but then I swap. I don’t really know which I like better! But I can tell my coloring got better.

Day 12

And here we are at Day 12! I really liked the chocolate frosting so I decided to go back to yellow for some lemon frosting and really focused on shading. What do you think?

I think my strawberry and even the cupcake liner are way better on this last version also.

I have 18 more cupcakes to go! I cannot wait to see how my coloring looks by Day 30.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Day 2: 30 Day Coloring Challenge- My Sweet Friend Cupcake Card

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Birthday Card, Caliart, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends,

I am finally back with my Day 2 finished card! I had posted the coloring of this cupcake with my Day 3 coloring & card but hadn’t finished the card but here it is.

It is a Double Z fold Card. This is my 3rd card with the My Sweet Friend Cupcake stamp from Colorado Craft Company.

It measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 when closed and when open it measures 5 1/2 x 11.

I used my Spectrum Noir and Caliart markers to color my image and then I added some Glossy Accents to give my strawberry a little sheen. I also added some tiny purple hearts with a stencil.

The inside of the card says “This Card is Sprinkled with Love” with space for a handwritten message and on the opposite side it says “Hello, Cupcake”. Both sentiments are from the MFT Sugar-Coated Sentiments stamp.

I also used the 2nd half of my Day 1 coloring to make a 2nd card.

It is a bit slimmer than the Day 1 card at 3 1/2 x 5. I decorated it the same way though with sequins and my stamped sentiment on Vellum.

My next blog post will have my Day 4 coloring & card and ALL my coloring up to day 12. Making the cards is taking a bit longer but I am definitely keeping up with coloring.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

30 Day Coloring Challenge/ Day 3!!

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Caliart, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things

Hi Friends,

Today is Day 3 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge that Katy Rac is hosting over at the DailyMarker.com. This is my first time participating in this challenge and I am loving it.

Admittedly, while I colored my Day 2 cupcake, I haven’t made the card yet! That is coming soon…

I did finish my day 3 coloring and the card. I just love so much how this one came out that I went straight to making the card. The card size is 4 3/4 x 5.

If you missed my day 1 post, I am using the same stamp for all 30 days. I am using the Colorado Craft Company- Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake. I decided to use this one for all 30 days because I so often buy a stamp and only use it once or twice so I decided to push myself to use the same stamp.

For my sentiments I am using the My Favorite Things Sugar-Coated Sentiments Clear stamps. I think this sentiment stamp is perfect match for the cupcake stamp.

I am also using a mix of alcohol markers. Today I used my Caliart markers for the strawberry and cupcake and I used my Spectrum Noirs for the frosting.

I used my MFT Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 5 to make the little tag for my sentiment and then I added some green and white twine for a pop of color.

I also added some Clear Glass Bugle Beads on the frosting for some little sprinkle like embellishing.

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things

Hi Friends!

I am super excited to share I decided to try Kathy’s 30 day Coloring Challenge over at the DailyMarker.com.

I actually decided that I was going to use the same stamp for all 30 days and make 30 different card designs. Will it work? Will I get bored? Who knows??!!! But I’m going to try!

The stamp I am using is the Colorado Craft Company, Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake. I am also using the My Favorite Things: Sugar Coated Sentiments Stamp for ALL of my sentiments.

Today is actually day 2, but I am going to be behind in posting the actual finished cards.

So here is my Day 1 coloring & card.

And here is my Day 2 coloring. I will share the card tomorrow or I may batch cards and share 5 at a time.

There is still lots of time to participate. You can find the challenge here:

Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope you enjoyed my projects!
