Hey all! I am so excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp with their Stamptember Blog Party!

Stamptember is always a thrilling event for the entire month over at Simon Says Stamp! There are tons of things to scavenge around the website to find, deals, freebies new stamp sets everyday!

I got to play with the Detail Elm Leaf Die, this one is so pretty! I cut it out with scraps of Arches Coldpress watercolour paper. (This stuff is to expensive to waste I keep all my scraps!) Using some of my Daniel Smith Watercolours I added a splash of watercolour onto the die cuts then layered them onto some grey cardstock. Adding a sentiment from the Hey Bestie stamp set.

Supplies:
Simon Says Stamp – Detail Elm Die
Simon Says Stamp – Hey Bestie

The Greeting Farm – August Preview Day 4

Hey all! Today is the final day of previews for The Greeting Farm, that means you can get all the wonderful sets from this release tomorrow!

Today is the digital set, I love instant gratification, don’t you?!?! This set is called Birthday Party and it will work perfectly with the Birthday Girls and Birthday Boy stamps sets already released!

Along with the new Birthday Party and Birthday Girls sets I pulled in some of the others to create a rather large scene. I used the Suv Trunk, Food Truck, and 2020 Girls sets to build this scene.

Thanks so much fot stopping by,
Hugs

The Greeting Farm – August Previews Day 2

Welcome back to the second day of August Previews for The Greeting Farm.

Today we are sharing some adorable unicorns called Unicorn Dreams! Seriously, what is cuter then a unicorn eating icecream, I am really obsessed with that particular image from the set.

I pulled out my waterclours to paint this one up in some soft colours, adding a tree into the background to give them a little bit of a scene behind them. I have always enjoyed the contrast of the black stamped images to the no lines, free handed backgrounds. Something always feels dreamy about it to me.

Thanks for stopping by,

Altenew August 2020 Release!

Hey everyone I am so excited to be joining Altenew for the August 2020 new release!

My first project I pulled out my Altenew Watercolours an stamped put these gorgeous flowers and painted them up!

I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and added them to a splashy background with Altenews typically stunning sentiments!

For my next project I wanted to create something super soft, so I stamped the outline of the Amarylis stamp the. Added some soft colour using Altenews watercolours again. I love using paints on projects.

I then filled in the background with some solid black and added a banner with the sentiment for this card. It is super simple and fast to bring together but packs slot of punch!

Don’t forget to check out the Altenew Blog to get to the start of this hop!

You should have got here from Reiko Tsuchida, and you have found the end of this fun hop!

The Greeting Farm – August Preview Day 1

Hey all! Welcome to day 1 of August previews for The Greeting Farm!

Today we are sharing a super Cute Couple! This stamp set features 2 characters and a bunch of fun little icons.

Sometimes I see these images that just need to be the center of everything for a sweet little girl who is the center of her families world and that is what I did with this one. It is just the coloured image and the sentiment on the front of the card and that is all!

Tomorrow I will have something with some more detail!

The Greeting Farm – Preview Day 4

Hey all! Welcome to final day of previews for July at The Greeting Farm! Today is digi day, we have 2 new digital stamps for you! Poolside and Poolside Peeps will let your scene building creativity continue to flow!

I built up this scene from the bottom up in MS Word, starting with the tile, adding the pool then continuing with all the details. It was super fun to colour up with my copic markers.

If you look closely you can see how I carry colours thru the whole image, the yellow is the same in all areas, the blue for the water is dufferent then the other blue/green combo but that one goes thru everything, as well as the pink. I find using smaller colour palette and spacing the colours out thru the whole image allows it to feel very much one piece!
