Pre Coloured Delightful Images

This is the quickest way to completed a card
Pre-coloured images at
As a busy working mom who still wants some crafting time these precoloured images are my solution and they print off so nicely, it even looks like I shaded them in!!!!
Let's just say I am NUTS about pre-colours, LOL

Stampscapes Trishutter card Tutorial

Today I thought I would post a trishutter card,
I have not made one of these for awhile and I just loved how it turned out
Base is 5 1/2 X 12
(I like to use a black cardstock base for my Stampscapes cards)
scor at 2,4,8 and 10
1 1/2 from border cut between 2 and 10 scor lines
fold to make the trishutter
next
Glossy paper 5 X 11
Make your scene, keep in mind where the folds of the base will be
colour in your scene
(I used many Adirondack Inks)
helpful hint- Q tips are handy for small areas such as the light house
Cut out your scene to fit the tri shutter
Helpful hint- make a cutout with cardstock for side and middle the pieces that will fit the base to make it easier to cut the scene out to fit
Add the moon, clouds and sail boat
I did this once the scene was attached to the base just to make sure I got the moon and the boat where I wanted them to be

Hope you like, this was the first time I used my lighthouse set
