Hey friends! Long time to type/talk! We are back for a new year and I have 363 days to figure out what I wanna do with this blog and youtube. I really miss making cards so lets kick things off there!
Today I pulled out Wplus9’s Flora and Fauna 3 and made a card! And yes I filmed it for my youtube channel!
I have been doing so much with my watercolours last year that you didn’t get to see, I decided to grab something different do this one all in coloured pencils! I am going to be honest this was not a fast process. This card took me over 3 hours. Because I had 3 hours of footage to edit down for todays video!
I really love all the small details when it comes to one layer cards, shadows under the focal peice, the shading to make it look slightly sunken boarder. This one was just a blast! I love the little gouache addition to help the sentiment pop and brighten up the centers of the flowers!
You can watch the entire process below!
Thank you all for stopping by, even though I have not been around! I appreciate you all so much!
I pulled out my Tweet Friends stamp set from MFT and Stacey Yacula.
Stamping it with my Cement Gray ink pad, and pulling out my coloured pencils and getting to work!
I have always loved the look of pencils on toned paper, kraft, gray, or black I love all of them with my coloured pencils. After slowly building up the layers to get the main image coloured up. I added a start white outline just to let the little bird pop off theback ground. Some gental scratchy colouring to give the feeling of a background really did finish this one off.
I love these XL Greetings! They allowed me to freehand paint a flowers and put a nice bold sentiment right over the middle of it! Keeping it simple with just a big thanks!
I really enjoy being able to add my own art to a statement sentiment!
Now as for Stamptember, make sure you stop back at Simon Says Stamp everyday through the month to see what they have instore for us! Did you see the coupon code I have at the top of my blog post? Make sure you head over to the Simon Blog and go check out the other creators and see what codes they have for you as well! It is a giant scavenger hunt!
Hey friends! Long time no see. My summer has been crazy. Outside of being down in the dumps over the world situation, the busy work schedule made me completely step away for a while. But I have missed cardmaking and am hoping you are all excited to see my new creations as I am to get back into cardmaking!
So for today’s project I am sharing what i mae for Day 2 of MFT Stamp Camp and Create! When they announced a watercolour day, there is no way I could not participate!
I pulled out my Art Philosophy (Prima) watercolours and the Magnolia Blossom set from MFT and went to town. ( I will link all products at the end of the blog post)
Just slowly building up intensity, and layers of colours to get the look I want. I start out nice and light then just add layer and layer usually 3 to 5 layers later and I have the look I am picutring in my head.
I then pulled out the All about you set and stamped the “you” in my antique linen Distress Ink then watercoloured over it with a brown. Stamping the rest ofthe sentiment on a co-ordinating cardstock and embossing it in gold finished off this clean little card!

Hey friends! I have been having so much fun finding things in my stash as I move craft rooms!
So for this card, I pulled out a set from MFT that I have had for a long time and my Caran D’ache Neocolor ii’s to create this fun galaxy style card!
I really am happy with how this one came out, I am sure I could have blended the galaxy more but all in all this one came out awesome!

I got to play with the Spring Blooms Corner Die! So I inkblended up a couple of background and then cut the die out on some white and black cardstock in order to create the two cards.
I really love the way these came out, it is so fun to get a small mystery parcel from Simon every month and get to play with something new! I popped up the panel with foam tape to get a bit of a shadow on the ink blended background.
