Oddball Turtle

Hey everyone, I am on my second last guest post for Stamping Bella!

It has been so fun creating for them, and there will be more Stamping Bella shared on my blog here, even after the guest spot has ended.

This week, I decided to pull out my watercolours again and paint up the Oddball Turtle.

Using my Daniel Smith paints to paint up this salty little guy. Working in light layers and letting them dry completely to achieve the depth of colour I was after.

Hugs,
Jessie

The Greeting Farm – May Previews

Hey all! Welcome to Day 1 of previews for The Greeting Farm.

We are kicking things off this month with some new dies! We have a Hi Hello die set and a Thank you die! I used the Hello die for my card.

I painted up some flowers from the With Love stamp set, with my watercolours. Once I got that all painted up, I cut the hello out of white cardstock 4 times, then cut it out of the watercolour piece layering the die cuts all together I added that all back into the card.

I am super happy with the way this one came together!
Thanks for stopping by,

Bouquet of Thanks

Hey everyone! Today I have a card I shared on Instagram during the 30 day coloring challenge. But now I have edited the video and am going to share it here with you all on my blog.

I pulled out Simon Says Stamp Bouquet of Thanks for this fun little card. I really love how the white heat embossing makes the flowers pop in a softer way the the black stamped lines. All links to supplies will be at the bottom of this post.

I have a complete process video of this one for you!

Bouquet of Thanks

Hey all! I am still playing along with the 30 coloring challenge. I had a super busy day, and almost forgot to put this one up!

I used the Bouquet of Thanks stamp from Simon Says again. For a completely different look then the first time I used it! You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

I stamped and embossed the image, then got to playing with watercolours. Love of water and just dropping the pigment in and letting it do its magic! It was a super fun and simple card to put together!

Sketched Flowers

Hey all! I have lots of things and goals I want to accomplish this year, and part of it is branching out and working with other companies. So today I decided to play along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge. This weeks theme is Something New, which made it pretty easy.

Simon Says Stamp - Sketched Flowers - Jessie Banks

I pulled out a brand new set, that I haven’t used yet from Simon Says Stamps called Sketched Flowers. I also used a new watercolor to me Daniel Smith’s Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.

I had so much fun painting this piece and playing with some colours I haven’t used much, or at all before.
