I’m in the spirit of Christmas cards at the moment, so I have to share loads! Sorry, not sorry! Here is Elliot and Marcel making Snowfetti. It is from Purple Onion Designs’ Julian Charlton range. I think the stamp is super cool and tried something new: pencil colouring on a blue background. Fun! I’ve added extra snow and a fun border around. Love how the pencil colouring turned out, so don’t be surprised if you see more like it!
Did you see the colouring video I made back at the end of February? You can view it on YouTube here and the blog post can be found here. I used Prismacolor pencils for colouring up the Altenew Statement Flowers and now I’ve finally completed the card as well. I cut it out by hand and added some foam tape to the back of it, sprayed some black ink on a kraft card base, doodled a little in the corners and used their Hello die and enamel dots to finish off the card.
I have another pencil colouring video for you today. This time I’ve used a stamp by My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. The image has been stamped twice at slightly different angles using GinaK Designs’ Amalgam Ink and it has been coloured up using Prismacolor Premier Pencils.
There’s no audio this time either and the video itself has been sped up so that it is twice as fast as the real time colouring. Then you have an idea of how long it took to colour it. It takes longer to make the actual video than it takes to colour up the image, that’s for sure!

Pencils used: (brown) 947, 945, 943, 997, (green) 109, 1097, 1005, 989, (pink) 994, 929, 928, 1014, 938
As you’ve noticed I am quite fond of colouring with pencils on kraft. I have yet to actually try to use them on anything else! This time I’ve coloured up a stamp from Power Poppy. The numbers were cut out using an MFT Stamps die and then coloured up with the same pencils so it would match the colour of the flower. I finished it off with the recipient’s name and a few enamel dots.
I have coloured up a few of Lee Holland‘s adorable images this year, but I think this might be the first time one of them has made its way onto a card. It would work as both a birthday card and a Christmas card (well, and encouragement and friendship cards), but in the end I opted to make a birthday card out of it by using a Papirdesign sentiment. I kept the whole thing quite simple. The stamp was coloured up using Prismacolor pencils.
