Butterfly Card

So, as lots of you know I have been playing catch up with the Watercolor For Cardmakers Class. It is fun, challenging, and irritating all at the same time. All I can tell you is I am sick of flowers… hence the butterfly.

The circle is made with Gelato’s in some random colours, blue, pink, yellow, orange, grey, and purple. The butterfly stamp is a Martha Stewart one from 2009, and is stamped in Distress ink .

I stamped the image with Dusty Concord, then watercolored in peacock feathers, and picked raspberry. The sentiment comes from the Handwritten Greetings set from Simon Says Stamp, and is stamped in Versa Fine Onyx Black. As usual my card base is Neenah Solar white 110 lbs cardstock cut to a standard A2 size card, the pink pannel is out of my scrap bin, so I am unsure of where it came from and is 4x 5 1/4, and the front with image is Canson 140lbs coldpress watercolor paper cut to 3 3/4 x 5.

So here is my first card from the class and I have a couple more on the go down in my craft room. I like the way this one turned out for the most part. If I was to do it again I wouldn’t add the solid colour panel.

Father’s day is coming! For a change, I am ahead of the game. (Don’t get use to it lol.) I have been having tons of fun playing with this set and doing some simple masculine cards, they always seem to be a challenge.

Oh, Hello

Oh Hello 1 Oh Hello 2 oh Hello 3 Oh Hello

So I was playing on my ustream channel, just making some cards, and I chose a wonderful little stamp set from Scraptastic. I am a subscriber to their PL kit, and their scrapbooking kit. Yes, I don’t only make cards, ha ha!

I thought it would be fun to use a stamp set that was designed for scrapbooking in a card! It can be done!

Oh Hello 1

 

I know the Iphone image did not stamp perfect, probably because I was using the rougher side of the watercolour paper, but I like it anyway. The sentiment also comes from the same set.

April’s Favorites!

Its the first day of May! Woot woot, maybe the snow will finally stop in my part of the world. Wishful thinking!

So I am going to start a new little series here on this blog where on the first day of the new month I will post some of my favorite things I have used in the previous month. (Does that make sense? I sure hope so). Hopefully you enjoy these little posts with a few products I love, and maybe a couple that I figure were a huge waste of my hard earned money. Yes, I have those once in a while, maybe more often then I like to admit.

Favorite #1

I am taking the Watercolor for Cardmakers Class, which starts on May 5, 2014. So I bought myself a little treat for this class, the Cotman Watercolor Compact Set.

I love the colours in this set, and they paint so lovely. I have only played with them a little bit, so maybe making them a favorite is a bit premature, but I am sure you will see cards I make with this set throughout the month of May.

Favorite #2

I have raved about this stamp set for a long time, I regularly tell people that it should be a staple in every stampers collection. Its the Simon Says Stamp Lots of Dots Set.

Favorite #3

And my last favorite for the month of April, is something I have been saying they should make since I first fell in love with the distress inks. The Ranger mini ink blending tool.
