Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

One of my newest favs is pinning on Pinterest! If you’d like to follow me, I’m “andreasscraps” there. My boards are still relatively new, but growing fast!

  1. Peeling Brights
  2. Gumball Brights
  3. Flamingo Hues
  4. Worn Bright
  5. Tiger Tones
  6. Decadent Tones
  7. Mineral Yellow
  8. Iced Tomato
  9. Color Polish
  10. Inked Blues

Have a great day!

Let’s get back into sharing some projects that I’ve been working on. Granted these are relatively quick and easy as compared to scrapbook pages, but I’m still using my supplies and creating. It feels good.

I’ll share some ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) and cards that I’ve done recently. I had a lot of fun making them, mostly because I’m using stamps from my vast collection. I can’t even tell you how many I have because I don’t know!

I’ll also share some class samples from a Copic coloring online class that I’m taking from Melissa & Kristy at Created from Color. Even though I’m Copic Certified, I’m sure that I’ll learn and practice more techniques on coloring skin, hair and using a light source.  Kristy owns Some Odd Girl stamp company (digis and clear) and I just love her images and coloring samples.

My share today is a card using a sketch from CPS (Card Positioning Systems) and color combo from Color Throwdown. Take a look:

I just had to have this gnome collection from Whimsie Doodles. These little guys are so cute and fun to color! I loved incorporating this week’s white, black and hint of green from the Play Date Cafe’s Challenge in the card too. Check it out!

I just LOVE Whimsie Doodles digital stamps! They are super cute and I love coloring them.

I watched some Copic coloring videos on YouTube recently and tried some of the new to me techniques on this little guy. Not too bad! I still need some practice time, but the results are better than before I think!

This is for this week’s Whimsie Doodle ‘Get Well’ challenge. Hope you like him!

Whimsie Doodles challenge #70


I purchased and won (yea!) some clear stamp sets from The Cat’s Pajamas. I used a set in one of the cards for the Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoaststampers recently and am using another one to meet a couple challenges this week.

I paper pieced the little girl in this set using BasicGrey’s Two Scoops Collection, an oldie but goodie. The colors are so yummy! I also used one of my new Spellbinders fancy label dies that I just love. So fun and a great result! I hope you’ll think so too.

It’s Virtual Stamp Night this past weekend on Splitcoast Stampers, so I thought that I would indulge myself in some stamping just for the fun of it.

So, VSN has various challenges under this month’s theme of You Make My Heart Sing. The hostesses are extremely creative with their challenges all relating back to the main theme. Great job ladies!

This is the last card that I made over the event. So much fun and I made 15 cards!
