Spectrum Noir Colorista Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Colorista Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the Spectrum Noir Blog!

The Spectrum Noir Colorista line is coming and it truly is amazing! I created a picture that will be hanging in my craft room using one of the Travel Packs called Inspiring Sentiments.  I used pretty much every single Colorista marker to color this in!

I love these paper packs!!!! It makes creating projects so fast and simple.  I colored this in and framed it and it was done! I could not believe how fast I created this and it looks so professional, too!

Next up on the hop is Laine Webb! Make sure to check out the Crafter’s Companion US for full details. There are all kinds of amazing prizes to win!

Create A Card Base Dies from Crafter's Companion!

Hi! Recently, Crafter's Companion released some Create-A-Card dies.  These dies are pretty stinkin' cool because they create the card bases for you! No more trying to create cool shaped cards by adhering two bases together - it's all done in the cutting!

I created this sweet card inspired by my kiddo! I die cut the base using the Rosie Die, the Elegance 11x17 Paper Pack, and my Gemini. Then I also die cut it a few more times in smaller sizes and cut them apart for the background.

I used the Angelica and Friends: Eleanor EZ Mount Stamp set and I colored everything in with Spectrum Noir Markers PP1, PP2, PP5, CT3, TN7, TN3, FS4, FS6, FS8.

Rock Forever with Crafter's Companion!

I wanted to pop in and share this card I created with some brand new supplies from Crafter's Companion, created by Sheena Douglass.  I adore this range! It is so perfect for my teenage son, who lives and breathes music these days!

I created the card using Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Rock Style Rock n Roll EZ Mount Stamp Set and the Just for Men Checkerplate Embossing Folder. The background is from the Just for Men 6x6 Urban Collection paper pack.

To create those awesome metallic splatters, I used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen Spun Gold (from the Metallics set). I just squeezed the barrel and flicked it across the background. One more use for those amazing pens!

Everything was colored in using Spectrum Noir Markers.

Colors used: GB1, GB2, GB3, GB4, TN1, TN2, TN3, TN4, TN5, IG1, IG2

Thanks for stopping by today!!! And if you're looking for more inspiration, follow Crafter's Companion US on Pinterest!
