Spectrum Noir Colorista coming to HSN + a winner!

Hello friends! I am back and today I want to introduce you (if you haven't heard about it yet) to the new Spectrum Noir Colorista line, that includes 6 different Coloring books, pencil, markers, cards!! You can check out the collection HERE (the giveaway over there is already closed), during my recovery days (well still recovering) I did a little bit of coloring. I colored a page from one of the big coloring books, I used my Colorista markers and voila!!

After coloring the page, I decided to use it and make cards and they turned out beautiful!

Let me show you the cards I made:

Card 1: For this card, I just added a stripe of black shimmering cardstock and gold tape, adhered it to a white card base. The sentiment was stamped on a black shimmering cardstock in Versamark Watermark and heat embossed with white embosing powder.

Card 2:  The coloring panel was put on top of a yellow pearl shimmering cardstock, about 1/4" bigger on each side, sentiment was stamped  on a piece of  black shimmering cardstock in Versamark Watermark and heat embossed with white embosing powder. Added a piece of vellum and some shiny dew drops.

Card 3: For this card, I cut the panel in 3, adhered the top and bottom on top of the vellum piece and the middle piece was put behind the vellum, this way the "Celebrate" die-cut in black shimmering cardstock will show much better. (well at least I think it does), added a coastal shimmering cardstock behind the panel and a bow.

Card #4: This card is the simplest of the whole group. Just a white cardstock base, the coloring panel and the sentiment.

Last, but not least, the giveaway winner!! I used and it selected #8

OMGosh you poor thing, I hope you are feeling better soon. Gallstones and surgery are enough to wipe you out for a while. After surgery, it is usually the gas they inflate that really takes a while to get out of your system. Try to walk around a little several times a day. Get well soon.
Holly, please email me at giovanachavez @ msn. com with your information so I can mail your prize.

Thanks so much for your kind words, I am still in recovery mode, not much has changed since last time, tomorrow I have an appointment, hopefully I will get some answers about this.

Hope you like my cards!
Have a fantastic day/night.


  1. Wow, a fabulous set of cards! Love all the four makes, they are so sweet and colourful!
    Congrats to Holly! Enjoy! :D

  2. Wow, these cards are just gorgeous! The color and composition are just amazing!

  3. Beautiful cards Giovana. I plan to use my finished colouring book pages this way as well. I see no point in keeping them in a book once finished. These are fantastic.
    Congratulations to Holly and I am glad you are recovering.
