Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here, and today I have a pretty little card to share and a few little step by step tips on simple colouring technique. The stamps and coordinating dies are from Picket Fence Studios. The Que Sera, Sera collection.  Here are all of the details. Step one is to stamp the images you would like to use onto white cardstock using Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. Now I gathered the colours that I wanted to use on my images. A little trick of mine, is that I keeping the backing from my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Foam Squares. They can be used as blending surfaces. I always have a little pile of them at my desk for just this purpose. Often when I am colouring I like to add colour straight to cardstock in the areas where I want the colour the darkest. Here is…

Hello crafty friends! Tracy here and today I have a pretty little card to share today featuring Gateway Dies and the Cascading Wisteria collection from Heartfelt Creations.

Hello crafty friends! Tracy McLennon here on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Today I have such a fun little card to share featuring a cute little stamp set from Picket Fence Studios and coordinating dies. I also used some of my favourite Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L products and Ranger inks.
