In2Stamps March Challenge - An Easel Card

Hi Everyone

Wow, I can't believe that we are already in March!!  This year seems to be speeding along; before you know it we will all be racing to get our Christmas cards finished on time !!!!

Anyway, a new month means a new challenge over at the In2Stamps Challenge Blog and this month the challenge is to make an Easel Card.  I love these.

Here's mine:

I've used a stamp from the In2Stamps Baby Collection called Here I Am! and I've coloured it using Prismacolor Pencils blended with Sansodor and Paper Stumps.

As usual, In2Stamps are offering a fantastic prize to the winner of this month's challenge 

The complete Basic Grey Collection Origins 6" x 6" papers
3 In2Stamps stamps of your choice

So, what are you waiting for?  Hop on over to the In2Stamps Challenge Blog where you can get all of the challenge details as well as being able to see the rest of the talented Design Team's fantastic creations.

The challenge lasts for the whole of March.  If you don't have any In2Stamps stamps there is still enough time to purchase some and enter the challenge.  There are plenty to choose from, including two new collections!!!


Stamp: In2Stamps "Here I Am!"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Colouring Medium: Prismacolor Pencils blended with Sansodor and Paper Stumps
Papers: From my stash
Tools: Nestibilities Labels 8 with Sizzix Big Shot
Embellishments: Ribbon, brads and a charm from my stash

I look forward to seeing all of your Easel Cards.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Great card and image - not done a card like this think I need to have a go. Tried your flower from the other day..will post soon, though not sure how it will fit in the envelope...think I need to change one or two things next time

Love this card, especially that little silver postmark. If that's a stamp I NEED it! lol*
Thank you so much for replying to my post about how to stick down flowers. I was like a kid in a sweetie shop when they arrived. I am going to get some silicone glue and have a play. Great tip about putting a flat flower underneath and curling the stem too.. thanks.

Penni, beautiful easel card. Great colour combo and beautifully coloured. I've never tried colouring with coloured pencils--I keep saying one day, one day I'll try it, LOL. Love your teddy bear charm--perfect touch.
