My New found LOVE....Magnolia Stamps and C.C. Design stamps

    You would think that I'd have some cards to show by now......but one thing is for sure, I will have plenty of stamped images when I do begin my card making process. I have found my new favorite stamps to color...yes, Magnolia Stamps....don't get me wrong, I still love ALL my House-Mouse stamps and those are trully my favorite to color, however, I challenged myself to these stamps as well as the C.C. Design stamps.

Here are just a few of the images that I've colored so far:

I have plenty more to color:
Now on to my House-Mouse.....

I also purchased a few of the C.C. Design stamps, but haven't gotten to those yet:

I am really going to challenge myself to start using up these images and start making some cards.....hopefully my next posting will be of cards.  In case you are interested in purchasing Magnolia Rubber Stamps, I got them from their website: , the C.C. Design stamps I got from:

How I add background color to my stamped images...

I have to start by saying this is not a technique I came up with....I have to give the credit to Jeanie, her Youtube link is:  You may also visit her blog at: ~ her cards are all so beautiful and amazing. 

I posted a video on my Youtube channel, titled "What I've been up to...." and in this video, I shared my love for Copic markers.  I am a newbie, so be gentle.  I received many requests on how it is that I added the background color to my stamped images, so here is my tutorial.

 I have to say that I am so, so, hooked....I cannot stop coloring.  So, I've been visiting lots of blogs of ladies who are "pros" at coloring with these markers....and I've learned a lot.  I came across Jeanie's blog and noticed she had posted a link to her first Youtube tutorial...I was so happy.  This is where I learned how to add color to my stamped image resulting in an amazing look.

Okay, so I'm off to color some more....Thanks for stopping by!
