Happy Sunday! If you are not following me on Instagram then you may have missed all 30 of my cupcakes. That’s right, I colored cupcakes for all 30 days!!!
And while it was fun and I loved using my alcohol markers (I have a mix of Spectrum Noir, Caliart, Promarker and Copics) as much as I did, I am glad it is over.
Here you can see all of my cupcakes!
Right now I am working through all of my projects with these cupcakes. Some are going to be cards and a few I have my eye on for a birthday banner. I’ll continue to share my finished projects here…but it’s going to take me awhile!
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
I have a fun project share for you today which is also my card for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop.
The theme was Spring/Summer and although the lady in the image I used is wearing a sweater I am positive it’s probably because its cold inside the coffee shop.
I created a 6 x 6 card with a gorgeous image from Krista Smith. You may love Krista’s designs as much as I do and remember her designs as Saturated Canary. The image I used is the Once A Month Image April 2019. You can find it in her Etsy Shop: Shop Krista Smith here.
The paper collection I used is from my very own collection, Magic Bean and you can find that here.
I colored up the image with my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers. I wanted the card to be dimensional so added a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and 5 x 5 layers on pop dots and then an oval cutout for the image with more pop dots.
The sentiment stamp I used “Instant Smile in a cup” is from the Greeting Farm, Mini-Remix Brewtiful.
Lastly, I embellished the card with some gold sequins and a tulle bow and brown cord bow.
I really enjoyed coloring up this image and making a card with less embellishments but more dimension with all the layers.
I have a different type of project share for you today! It is a freebie printable! Here is an adorbs Unicorn Daily Planner sheet.
The Unicorn Daily Planner is a great way to organize your day with a super cute layout.
Want a break down of all the sections?
Here it is:
Brain Dump: Use this section to jot down all those thoughts, ideas and to do’s in your head. Get them all on to paper here!
Must Do’s: This section is for you to list everything you need to get accomplished today. I know there are a bunch of things you want to do but you can’t do them all. What do you absolutely need to get done today.
Schedule for later: Did you write something down in your brain dump section that you need to get on your calendar. Write it down here. Maybe you need to remind yourself of an upcoming deadline or that you need to schedule an appointment. These are tasks that don’t need to be done today but you want to keep track of.
Delegate: It’s so hard to let go! But that is exactly what this section is for. You should do things every day only you can do. If there is something that you know you need to give someone else then do it. Pass along those things you should not be doing.
Appointments for today: This is just what it says. Write down all those appointments or errands you have scheduled for today.
Move to tomorrow’s To Do’s: Even with the best to do list and most organized day sometimes you just can’t get it all done because well, life happens. These are to do’s that you had scheduled for today that you need to move to tomorrow’s list.
