Our March card kit is ideal for whimsy-loving, color-craving, card-making machines. Doodled Blooms includes two stamp sets AND two Die-namics – all of which combine for endless crafting opportunities. The Doodled Blooms stamp set includes (7) flowers and (4) stems. Each image features fun-to-color doodled lines and encompasses a wide range of sizes so you can build a unique, dynamic bouquet or field perfect for frolicking. The coordinating Die-namics provides for perfectly sized die cuts every time. It is open inside to allow you to stamp then cut OR cut then stamp. This feature makes the Die-namics lighter weight and allows for easier removal from the die. More Essential Sentiments is the follow up to the Essential Sentiments stamp set. This set includes a wide-ranging collection of greetings, phrases, and sentiments in a clean, legible sans serif font. It will quickly become a go-to set both for pairing with your Doodled Blooms images as well as combining with virtually any other images in your crafting arsenal. The Interactive Rectangle Word Windows Die-namics includes three sizes designed to perfectly accommodate all of the phrases in More Essential Sentiments. These dies feature three cut edges, and one embossed edge, for creating a flap to conceal your sentiments. In addition to (10) sheets of Smooth White Card Stock, you’ll also receive (10) A2 envelopes in 5 bright colors. These colorful envelopes are simply begging to be accented with the Doodled Blooms images for a perfectly complementary enclosure for your handcrafted cards.

Critter Clan – Doodle Coloring with Sandy Allnock

Create8Logo

Happy March, friends! I’m Sandy Allnock, coloring addict…back with another video for you this month!

Sandy Allnock

Before I get started – I want to address what you might be thinking: I don’t see color in this picture. It’s not coloring! Well, technically, black is the absence of color, and white is ALL colors of the spectrum. So even though I’m coloring by doodling – there’s more color here than you might have guessed!

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

These cards are also clean and simple – they make for a quick card but really cute, and still have your love poured into them. Check out the video for tips on how I created these sweet cards using Critter Clan!

Doesn’t that make you want to get out a pen and start doodling? It’s so relaxing to just mindlessly fill in patterns. Think of all the cute MFT stamps you can use to apply this technique!

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

I think the horse is my favorite – he’s got the most spaces to fill in with the doodling. You could do his entire body and leave his mane and tail white, or just use different textures and intensities to create a difference between them.

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

And then…there’s the little fox. I have a special place in my heart for any fox, know what I mean? This little guy is so sweet, and I’ll be getting out my Copics to color him over on Instagram today – so be sure to pop over and see him!

Handmade cards from Sandy Allnock featuring products from My Favorite Things #mftstamps

One of the best parts of this kind of a technique – you can get your stamping done, then take any black pen and hit the road to doodle at baseball practice, or while waiting in the card- any time you have a few minutes to just doodle! I hope you try playing with simple sketching skills, and add a little fun to some of your stamps!

See you next month – or over on my blog! (psssst I’m going to be having a ninja battle over there soon. #justsaying LOL!)
