Cultivating Happy!

Hi All! Just wanted to share a little card I created from a coloring piece I did earlier in the month for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge (#thedailymarker30day). I've been posting my coloring on Instagram, which you can see here.

Let's take a look at the card:


This medallion is from Close To My Heart's Ornate Blossoms stamp set. I stamped it on Pearl Shimmering Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with my Copic markers. 

The card is a 3 1/2 x 5-inch top folding base cut from White Daisy cardstock. I cut the shaker frame from White Daisy using dies from the Stitched Rectangles Stax by My Favorite Things. I added gold dot acetate from We R Memory keepers to the frame to make the window. After I added foam tape to all four sides of the window, I filled it with heart glitter by Martha Stewart Crafts. I then added it to the card base and popped the medallion on top with more foam tape. 

Here's a look at the medallion up close. The picture on the right is my attempt to show the shimmer of the paper:


I stamped the inside greeting in the same Memento ink using a stamp from the Bitty Birthday set by Close To My Heart. Here's a look:


And finally, one last look at the card:


This coloring challenge has been a lot of fun! There's still time left to join in. It's a great way to spend a little time relaxing and creating each day.

Have a wonderfully creative week!

  1. Oh, what an amazing card, Kim! That shaker is just SO fun! Love that you made the window from dotted acetate, as that just adds a whole other dimension to the shaker. And that medallion is fabulous! And brilliantly colored!
