Days 5 & 6, The Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

What....a box card?! Yep, I'm still at it! I used the images I colored for days 5 and 6 to create this camping themed box card, which may be among my top faves so far! These kids are just too cute and Birdie Brown has always been a huge favorite of mine (as you can see by looking at my stash of MFT stamps). 

Again, I have used the Level Up dies which gives a stadium affect to the layers. My favorite. I've had several questions about the measurements for these cards. There is no measuring required when using this die set! It goes so quickly and leaves more time for jazzing it up with all the fun pieces. This links you to the MFT youtube video showing how to assemble the Level Up Box Card.

Day 5 I colored the cute camping kids with a box card in mind. I used glossy accents on the magnifying glass, and later, on the kids' glasses.

Day 6 I colored a few accessories I knew I would add to the camping theme.

Do you stalk your mailbox??

...like I do? LOL This new set from My Favorite Things is the cutest. The sentiment is perfect for us crafters, particularly those of us who have little choice but to shop online for supplies. If  you live in BFE, like me, you know what I'm talking about. LOL So here is my shout out to online shoppers and our ever faithful delivery people! 

For this porch, I basically made it mine. The door, mailbox, light and porch are all in the colors of my house. I do have a window in my door, but this is close enough. ;) 
Also, I only have imaginary plants on the porch at the moment but hopefully soon that will change when I add some pots! 
Notice the package on the porch? Undoubtedly craft supplies I hope my husband won't see. LOL (kidding!!)
As with all the box cards, this folds flat for mailing. I love that feature!! The My Favorite Things dies are the best. Highly recommend. (link below)

Day 3 & 4, Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

I combined some of the images colored on Day 3 and 4 (yesterday and today) to create this cute mini slimline card. I'm pleased. Hope you like it. 

The newest My Favorite Things release is so fun. This set by Birdie Brown is called Sittin Pretty. I love the cute little porch with mailbox and porch light. This one fits the current MFT Slimline Challenge, Spring has Sprung. The tulips are perfect! Join the MFT Slimline Card Challenge here.
I love using foam tape, as you know. The added dimension really makes the images pop. 
Here's a side view to show the dimension created with foam tape.

Day 2, Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

Day 2, Daily Marker Coloring Challenge. For my finished project, I ended up using only a few of the images I colored, so the others will likely show up on something else later. But here's my finished card. I used the My Favorite Things Sketch #537 for my layout. I'm pleased! Hope you like. :) 

My new MFT release order arrived today and I'm as happy as I knew I would be. I had to use them for today's coloring. 
The stitched circle die is this month's freebie. (There are shaker pouches for purchase as well that are made to fit the window.) 
Sentiment from MFT, Little Love Notes. 
These are all the images I colored. As you can see I used only three of them this time. 
Copic colors I used for the pieces I ended up using on the finished card.

Day 1, Daily Marker Coloring Challenge

I'm so excited for another round of Daily Marker Color Challenges. This time it's 10 days, so not as long as the usual 30-day, but just as enjoyable and fun! Here's the card I made with Day 1 coloring. Sorry I forgot to get pics of the colored images before I put them all together on a card. I'll try to remember to do that for the remaining days. 

This one is a box card using My Favorite Things, Outside the Box dies with the Level Up add-on. For the adorable submarine (I can only see yellow when I color a submarine! LOL) and prominent sea creatures, I used Subbing In from Ellen Hutson, Essentials by Ellen. I've also used sets by My Favorite Things (see product list below).
