Altenew Wallpaper Art and Watercolors

Hey everyone! Today I am here with a soft card featuring Altenew Stamps and Watercolors!

I have had these paints in my collection for quite some time now. I have discovered that I have this issue where I am afraid that I will use them up, and then want them. But, I really need to get over it, and use this stuff. So this card was a step in the right direction, to using my stuff!

As for these paints, I really enjoyed using them. They rewet awesome, the mix well. They layer fantastic, which is how I do most of my painting. Saturation was great, color selection is gorgeous. All in all I really love these paints!

As for my card today, I have been doing one layer cards for such a long time now. This is such a step outside of my comfort zone. I really love how this one came together.

I do have a complete process video of this one for you all as well!

Black Watercolor paper?!?!

Hey all! Today I am playing with a new to me paper. Stonehenge Black Aqua paper! I had a blast pairing this with white gouage and floral stamps!

This card was super fun, I really enjoyed spending a couple of hours with a new paper and one tube of paint.

As for the Black Aqua paper, I really like it. It accepted the Gouache and water just as I expected it to, I did go into it considering it a watercolor paper. It is 100% cotton and is 140lbs the big difference is that it is black and not white.

I do have a process video to share with you all as well!

My Favorite Things – Squirrels

Hey everyone! I have been in a funk for the last few months. Why? I have no idea. But, I feel like I am back! I have some awesome things coming to share with you all!

Today we are starting with a card and complete process video of this!

My poor markers, had been so neglected lately. I have been on this watercolor kick! While, I still love my paints, I do need to make the effort to use all of the awesome things that I have in my collection.

I had so much fun creating the stenciled background! and the die cut grass. Of course I have a complete process video to share with you all!

The Greeting Farm – October Release Blog Hop

It’s the 15th, and the OCTOBER RELEASE is now available for purchase in The Greeting Farm Store! Our first set, features the beautiful HOLIDAY ANYA 7 with a gingerbread man cookie and the sentiment Oh Snap. The 2nd set called LITTLE ELVES has an entire crew of worker elves getting all the toys ready in Santa’s workshop. Next, we have THE MORE THE MERRIER with the cutest woodland animals celebrating the holidays in style. Lastly, we introduced two new large word dies: SANTA BABY and MERRY CHRISTMAS.

For my card today, I coloured up our image in my copic markers. I have been ignoring my poor markers lately and am so happy I pulled them out again. I love how she came out, once she was coloured I did add some black coloured pencil to help with a little more depth on the image.

Fussy cut her out and added her to the patterned paper, and star stenciled panel. A small sentiment and this card was complete!

To celebrate we are having a short BLOG HOP, where one lucky fan will take home the entire release!

The Greeting Farm – October Previews Day 4

Hey everyone! Welcome to the final day of Previews for The Greeting Farm!

Today we are sharing a couple of dies with you all! I chose to use the Santa Baby die, and pair it with the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember set that I didn’t get a chance to use, because it got to me after it was released.

So I stamped and masked a little holiday scene colouring it up with my copic markers. I then die cut the sentiment from the top, and also from a piece of craft foam to create the sentiment in white but with it being lifted it is still able to be easily seen, the name for this style of card escapes me. But I love it!

Ornamental Wreath – Simon Says Stamp

Hey everyone! Today I am sharing with you a fun new release from Simon Says Stamp called Cheer & Joy!

I had a blast playing with the Ornamental Wreath die and the Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Markers. Being as it is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, the colour scheme was ever so perfect!

I love that this die does not cut everything completely out, it’s like stamping with a die! I am super happy with how this clean and simple little card came out!

I do have a complete process video for you all!

The Greeting Farm – October Preview Day 3

Hey all! Welcome back to day 3 of previews for The Greeting Farm! We are nearing the new release!

Today’s set is called The More the Merrier! It is full of the cutest little critters ever!

Let’s talk about this card! I had a fantastic time colouring up the little hedge hog and door! and for some reason while I had them all masked out I decided it was a door to no where? Notice the blue sky and green grounding. But, I was so happy with how it looked all put together that I did not want to change it and try and make it look like the inside or outside of a house. So I left it the way it was. I am really happy with how it turned out.

I have been doing so much painting with my watercolours lately, that it was so much fun to pull out my colored pencils and colour this one up!
