Happy National Coloring Book Day ~ Blossom Bliss Blog Hop

Hello everyone… Welcome to the Blossom Bliss Blog Hop! Happy National Coloring Book Day!!! Today, I am joining STAMPlorations Design Team to celebrate this fun coloring book day and I have 3 coloring project to share with you all!

My first project is an encouragement card. I using one of the Blossom Bliss Coloring Book pages that I colored it with Prismacolors Pencils. The sentiment is from the Faith Expressions Stamp Set. I used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies to cut out the watercolored background panel and the coloring page.

My second project is another card with the Blossom Bliss Coloring Book Page that I colored it using Pearlesscent Watercolor Paint. It looks so pearly and glittery in real live…

The butterflies are from the Trendy Butterflies 2 Stamp Set. I stamped them on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black and then colored them with the Pearlescents Watercolor Paint. Then I fussy cut them with scissors. I curled the wings little bit with stylus for extra dimension to them and then I added them on the card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

And for the sentiment is from the Fond Expressions Stamp Set that I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment strip.

And my third project is an art journal. I applied thin coat layer of clear gesso on the Blossom Bliss Coloring Book Page and then colored with Distress Crayons and waterbrush.

I cut out the black frame with Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and then I added the colored page on the back of it.

I stamped the sentiments from Faith Expressions Stamp Set and Fond Expressions 2 Stamp Set on white cardstock with VersaFine Onyx Black and trimmed them. I drew the lines around the word to make a thin frame.

On the background of my art journal, I added the acrylic paints with brayer, and then I applied some white gesso with palette knife. Next, I added black acrylic paint using Crisscrossed ARTploration Stencil and make up foam on both corners.

I sprayed some of the Marabu Spray Paints on the page for extra splash of colors. I dried the whole page with craft heater.

And then, without using stamping block, I stamped randomly the script from the Mixed Media Element Stamp Set with Ranger Archival Black Ink Pad on both corner.

Final step, I added the framed colored page in the middle of the page with dries-clear adhesive glue. And then I added the words around the page with dries-clear adhesive glue.

  1. I really enjoy that you used a beautiful Bible verse on your encouragement card. I certainly need to be saying that verse to myself over and over. The second card is lovely with the butterflies. I like how you’ve curled them up slightly. My favorite is the journal. I’ve never made one. This is very inspiring.

  2. Fabulous projects, love all the beautiful flowers, and the butterflies are so pretty. Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. Hugs, Sandra
