STAMPlorations National Coloring Book Day Hop

Hi Everyone,

I finally jumped on the coloring book bandwagon.... It always takes me a while.... and Idecided to take part in this amazing coloring book blog hop. I was so impressed with all the beautiful cards I saw on the last coloring book hop, that I didn't want to be left out this time.

No automatic alt text available.

But it takes definitely a lot of time to do this. On the other hand, its also kind of relaxing.
I made three cards and used three different coloring mediums:

For card #1 I used my favorites - Inktense pencils. Also added the Birthday CUTplorations die and a little heat embossed happy.

For card #2 I used Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. Worked great, I think. I used THOSE CUTplorations dies and mounted them on lime green fun foam.

For card #3 I used Copics. Added some white gel pen accents. I used the luggage tag CUTplorations die and also elevated it with a scrap piece of cardboard, to make it stand out more.

As you can see, the coloring book works with all kind of different coloring media. 
So come and hop along - you don't want to miss all those wonderful projects from our talented DT girls!
There will be 2 winners on this hop:
- one (1) will receive a copy of Blossom Bliss and $15 GC to the store -- randomly drawn from entries in the linky party
- one (1) will win a $10 GC to the store -- randomly drawn from all comments left on the STAMP blog and designers' blogs.
Linking up and commenting is from August 2 to 9, with the winners announced on August 10.

And if you want to order, use code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA
you will get an 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store.

Happy Hopping!

Lovely cards. I especially like the Derwent Inktense card. That's the 2nd in the hop that I've really loved the colors. Like you, I'm late to the coloring book craze. I like that you can use a variety of mediums. [Bunny]

Fabulous bright cheerful cards Cornelia, thanks for sharing the different colouring mediums you used - gorgeous results all of them and the use of green fun foam will be added to my try list

I cant pick a favourite out here because they are all stunning and totally different. Love the inktense colouring then the full colouring of the prismacolour pencils and finally that wonderful tag and only partial colouring just wonderful. I hope I get a chance to join in this one it is amazing.

What fun samples! Loving the camouflaged die cut and the tag used as a spotlight piece. Thanks for a treat for the eyes!

Wow, I didn't even see the die cut word at first, but what a fun way to sneak it in!! Love all these pretty cards
