Hello crafty friends! Have you seen the newest release from Simon Says Stamp? Their Mothers Fathers and Florals release is packed with lots of new goodies that are perfect for Spring themed projects.

I really love the new Best Mom Ever stamp set; the gorgeous roses and leaf images are PERFECT for coloring! So I did just that and colored these in a no line coloring style. For those of you that are not familiar with no line coloring, this is a technique where you use a light colored ink to stamp your images so that when the coloring is finished, you cannot see the outlines of the stamped piece.

Normally you would choose a really pale color of ink (such as Simon’s Barely Beige), but I personally prefer using ink colors that closely match the colors I plan to color with. For the stamping I used Hollyhock, Lake Shores, Fern, Jellybean and two new inks from Simon: Velvet Orchid and Clementine.

Coloring was very easy with these images because they didn’t have too many small areas. I have been enjoying using my Prismacolor colored pencils over top of my Copic coloring lately. These are great for adding fine details to my coloring, which is what I did today. I have all the colors used listed further down in this post.

Once my coloring was finished, I gold heat embossed a sentiment from the Mom and Dad Icons set onto Lavender cardstock. This piece was popped up off the colored floral panel. I also added some Nuvo Jewel Drops and glitter onto the flowers for some embellishments.

While my coloring may have been done, I was far from being finished! I next tackled creating a coordinating envelope for this card using the new Sending Flowers stamp set.

I love this set because it makes decorating envelopes that much more fun! After I stamped the frame and sentiment, I masked off that area and stamped all the flowers. Then I colored them in exactly as I had the flowers in the card. This took quite some time to do, but it was totally worth it!

    I have to try the no-line stamping – haven’t gotten
    up the nerve to try it yet. Love the idea of
    stamping on the envelopes.
