Spectrum Noir Colorista Blog Hop

Colorista Hello Sunshine Card by Annie Williams - Main

I’m so excited to share a couple of projects with you today that I’ve made with elements from the new Spectrum Noir Colorista range debuting on HSN on August 30th (only a week away!).  This post is part of a blog hop showcasing everything Colorista, so if you arrived here from anywhere but Jo’s Blog, you can click the links at the end of the post to keep hopping or start back at the beginning by clicking here.

Colorista Hello Sunshine Card by Annie Williams - Full

First up is a super simple card I made using one of the designs from the “Inspiring Sentiments” Premium Marker Pad.  After coloring the entire page with my Colorista pens (the shading you can achieve on this cardstock is amazing!), I decided that it only needed a coordinating turquoise mat and a small bow of twine to be complete.

And how unique are the colorable glitter accents on the “In Full Bloom” Premium Marker Pad?  Summer is almost over, but I couldn’t resist shading in these pretty tropical drinks!

Many of the images in the marker pads are the perfect size to be cut out and used on cards or small gift boxes.  This card features elements from the Textures range (embossing folders and stamps) that will presented on HSN next week as well.
