Hello Fall + Coupon Code For Extreme Cuteness

I've been focusing on fall more this year - trying to stamp in season.

Well, in season for y'all. Here's it's still summer.

But it helps me enjoy things in real time if I'm not doing Christmas cards in July and if I can fill October with autumnal splendor.

The natural color combos are the ones I reach for anyway - piercing blues and hot oranges.

Well my friend Lori has enabled me into a new coloring medium that I'm absolutely freaking out about - these brush markers.

These are really unique - the ink flows supremely well through a porous point nib that reminds me of a Copic nib. They are so incredibly juicy and intensely pigmented, as you can see.

My favorite way to color with these is to scribble a darker color on my craft mat, and then take the lighter of two colors and pick up that darker color with the lighter marker, and then color from a dark area to a light area, like on the mushrooms until the lighter color is pure again!

It's amazing! I love them so much. Now I need them allllll!

This image is from Suzy's fall cards, which are great, as usual. I color these in front of the TV at night purely for relaxation - I rarely blog them. But I loved two of the ones I did so much one I thought I'd share.

If you purchase these cards, come back on Friday for another one with the same markers!

I also have a Life Favorites site to share with you today! (Plus a discount!)

I was on Facebook and an ad came up for the CUTEST stuff I've ever seen from this store - Kawaii Pen Shop. It was very hard for me to exercise self control with their washi tapes, adorable stickers and overall cuteness. These are some of the things I bought.

These fun & funky sticky notes:

These GORGEOUS layered sticky notes that are die-cut:

This gorgeous set of washi tapes called Blue World:

They even have adorable wood stamps, which I also bought and will be making cards with. Everything is super reasonably priced. Had I discovered this site as a child, I would have lost my mind. Everything I took to school would be covered with kitty stickers for DAYS. :)

I asked them if they would share a coupon code with all of you, and to my delight, they said yes!

So if you shop there, you can use code understandblue for 10% off your order!

Go forth and find cuteness.

  1. I like your fun mushroom piece! Thanks for the tip on how you add several shades with the markers. I have a few of these cards, but haven't colored or inked them yet. You have inspired me to first find where in the world I put them!, and then get busy. :)

    I was a self proclaimed Hello Kitty addict in school, so that website would have caused me to short circuit! Cuteness overload! Thank you for the link and discount code.

    I also want to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind comment about my card project. That was very nice of you!

    Enjoy your day!
