Azalea Process and Zig Clean Color Revie

Hey everyone, today I have a rather long video for you, and its a little something different. I recently picked up some (7) Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens to try out. So I recorded that as well as a complete card process for you all so its a bit of a long video this time.

PP Azalea 1

I painted up the Azalea Stamp set from Power Poppy for this little card. I used dark pink, pink, turquoise green, and light green to colour it.

Hope you enjoyed the video, I know I forgot to colour in the stems but I am still thrilled with the way the cards turned out.

I would like to enter this into this months challenge over at Power Poppy – Happy Mail.

Hear No Evil

Magnolia Tilda Hear no Evil 1.jpg

Hey everyone! Today I have a soft and pretty card to share with you all. I have been using my Schminke watercolours now for a few months and absolutely LOVE them! I will have a youtube video coming up on them very shortly. But when I first got them this, Magnolia Tilda Hear No Evil, was one of the very first images I painted with them and it finally got on a card!

I do not have a list of the colours I used as I mix all of my watercolours and do not use them straight from the pan very often unfortunately, but, like I said above I will have a youtube video coming up and that will let you see more detail about how I choose what colours to mix together.

I used up a bunch of scraps of paper, a couple flowers from my stash some ribbon and lace and a doily, a little bit of cheese cloth tucked in here and there finished it off.

P.S. Canada Post may be going on strike on July 2nd and the Etsy store has been put into vacation mode while that all gets figured out, this card will be listed there as soon as they have it all sorted out.

Spectacular Soiree

SOG Soiree 1.jpg

Hey everyone, I have a couple of fantastic things to share with you all today! First of course is the image Spectacular Soiree by Some Odd Girl! Do you see all of the fastastic die cuts on this card, that show off that image ever so well! Well those dies all come from Diemond Dies, and I have the honour of being one of their Guest Designers!

SOG Soiree 2

The front of my card was cut with the Labels 2 Top Notes die set,  I cut the circle around my image with the Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circles Nesting Die Set, and I used the Natures Flourish Die to highlight my flower cluster.

If you would like to save 10% and get yourself some of these wonderful dies, I would love for you to use the code thanksjessie at checkout!

Eggstra Special

LDRS Egg 1

Hey everyone! Today I am here with a card for LDRS Creative featuring Saturated Canary – Eggstra Special!

I did something different this time around instead of using a medium I use quite often I reached for something I NEVER colour or paint with and that is my distress inks, so many ladies on the LDRS team and in the cardmaking community in general do so well, and inspired me to finally try my hand at it.

LDRS Egg 2

I kept the rest of the card fairly simple bright coloured patterned paper matted on more bright cardstock, a little mesh type ribbon, a cut of the LDRS Lovely View Die and thats the card!

Strawberry Fields

LDRS Strawberry Fields 1.jpg

Hey everyone! Today I have a fun card using Candibean Strawberry Fields, and the Just Because Sentiment set.

I stamped the sentiment onto a kraft cut of the Gilded Oval Labels, with versamark in and embossed it with white embossing powder. I tucked it a couple cuts of the Gilded Doily Die, seriously if you don’t own this die you should probably go get it right now as it has quickly become one of my current favourites!

LDRS Strawberry Fields 2

I painted my image up with my Schmicke watercolours on Arches 140lbs Coldpress watercolour paper, I love the coldpress paper with the strawberries and the mice the little texture does so much for this image without me having to do any of the work!

Hey everyone! We are still going strong and having a great time playing with Power Poppy images over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends this weekend. If you aren’t over there with us yet you really should be!

PP Hellebores wc 2

To colour the Hellebores image up I used my Schmincke Horadam Aquarel watercolour set. I will list the colours I used, but just remember these colours were mixed together and used with different amounts of water to achieve the look I was after not just straight colour out of the pans.

Colours used – Lemon Yellow, Chrome Yellow Deep, Magenta, Permanent Carmine, Delft Blue, Idigo, Prussian Green, May Green, Colbalt Green Dark, Olive Green Yellow, and Yellow Ocher.
