I really love this fun summerycolour pallet they gave us to work with. I broke out my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and set to work with the Prehistoric stamp set.

I am so over the moon with this set! I need to use it again with my copics. My son thinks its awesome that I can make him Dinosaur cards! I kept everything really simple following the colour pallet provided. I even recorded a video of making this card for you all!

I have a fun little video of this card. I hope you enjoy!

Inspire Me Monday – Washy Watercolour

PP_Blog_InspireMeMonday_Badge_JessieBanks.png

Hey everyone! I am here today, hopefully to help inspire your creative week, using an awesome floral image from Power Poppy!

I am all about floral cards, in ever medium ever!! Today I have a video with some super soft watercolour on the Bubbles and Fizz digital stamp!

PP Bubble and FIzz

I really love this image, I chose to print the lightened version of the stamp and use some light washy watercolours. I really love the way this card came out. In my usual style I blew up the image to fit the front of a card and added the sentiment that comes along with it!
I hope you enjoy my video!

I have always loved how washy watercolours work so well with florals, you don’t have to worry about picking every little detail to come out with a super lovely card front!

My Favorite Things – Camp Create Day 4

Print

I know I am doing them out of order, but I am here with another card for Camp Create 2017 over at My Favorite Things stamps! This card is for Day 4 Sensational Sliders!

Print

I used the rest of the images from the Farm Friends set! I really am enjoying doing videos colouring the whole set, then making cards with all the parts of the set!

http://jessiebanks.com

I used the Surf & Turf slider dies to create this card, it was my first attempt. I learnt a lot going through this process, I attempted to put the two slider elements together with bakers twine, but that flopped them all around so I went with a think piece of cardstock. Worked like a charm!

There is the colouring video (if you watched the video on the prior card you have already seen it)

My Favorite Things – Camp Create Day 1

Print

Hey everyone!  I am a little late getting started, but I am hoping to finish all the badges I will have two of them for you all today, the first one is Wonderful Watercolor! It is one of my favourite mediums (who I am kidding they all are!)

Print

So for today’s card I pulled out the My Favorite Things – Farm Friends stamp set (I am going to try something new on my blog and link all the products used at the bottom of this post so they are easy to find) and coloured it all up, There is a video of me colouring all the images attached at the bottom of the post.

Copic colouring on the cow, watercolor background. Be sure to check my blog for a colouring video!

I kept everything super fun and washy in the background, which is something I have really been enjoying doing for the last little while. An awesome sentiment from the same set and a few dots using my Nuvo Drops and this card was complete! That is why I love doing this backgrounds cards and super fun and easy!

This video also includes colouring for a card that will go up following this one!
