Magical Dragons

Hey friends! Today I pulled out the Magical Dragons set from MFT and my copics and coloured pencils on some kraft paper.

I stamped it out with come really light ink for the no lines look. Then added in the background and detail in the dragon with my coloured pencils. Unfortunately, I didn’t keep track of all the coloured I used, cuz it was just some late night colouring for 100% fun!

I added the cloud in the background with a stencil then added the colour after. A few small enamel dots with a small sentiment finished off this sweet little card!

Valentines Card

Hey friends! Another new thing from me today, I do not normally do holiday themed cards a whole lot. It just isn’t my cup of tea. But this was a fun quick and simple card to put together!

The pink in this card, is way NEON in person, which I love but neons do not photograph real well.

This one was simple, just an ink blended heart die cut and then a sentiment called it done!

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

Frosted Garden

Hey friends! Today I have a card and video sharing a card I am in love with. That involves NO COLOURING. If you have been following my blog for any length of time you know that I colour literally all the time. This is so outside my norm. I would love to know what you think!

I stamped out all the images using the Coffee Break in set on white cardstock, and watercolour paper. Then spend AGES fussy cutting them all out. I then inkblended a tall slimline card to place them all on. A fun die cut sentiment paired with a stamped one finished this card off!

I do prefer the solid stamping on the white cardstock as opposed to the stamping on the watercolour paper. I am interested to know which look you prefer!

And now for the process video!

I also filmed this one for you all!

Stronger Together

Hey friends! Today I have a clean and simple card to share with you. Using Alcohol inks and my copics, both of which I have been neglecting!

I started off by creating the background panel with my alcohol inks, using some pinks. Which helped me choose the yellow flowers of the copic coloured image to contrast off of that pink background!

I did a primarily black sentiment as I wanted it to pop out from all the colour and white space that is on the front of this card. I haven’t done a clean and simple card like this in quite some time!

I do have a process video of this one to share with you all!

Cat-astrophe

Hey friends! Today I am again playing along with MFT Sketch Challenge for the week!

I started off by pulling out the Cat-astrophe stamp set, creating a rainbow striped background some cut out stars.

I love how the sketch challenges really push me out of my comfort zone, dies and coloured cardstock have not been part of my regular crafting lately and it fun to bring them back. I hope to keep pushing myself!

I did get this one filmed and edited for you all this one on time! I hope you enjoy seeing my process!

Seaside Seagulls

Hey friends! Today I decided to play along with MFT Sketch Challenge, this use to be one of my favorite things to do every week, I am hoping to play along regularly again.

This is the sketch from this week, it was a sweet one to play along with. I took the little flag banner off and then added the sentiment to one of the rectangle planners.

I started by colouring up the seagulls and clouds from the Seaside Seagull set. Then I masked out the background and used the small cloud stencil to create the coloured panels.

I popped up the seagulls and with some foam tape and added the sentiment to the card and called this one complete.

I do have a video for this one, but it isn’t quite ready. I am hoping to have it finished late tonight, so keep an eye out of my Youtube channel.

Wonderland

Hey friends! Today I am sharing a card I made using Altenew and inspiration from Del and Artie!

I stamped and embossed the lovely florals on some watercolor paper, then went in with multiple layers of come gorgeous Paynes Grey!

I went in a completely different direction then Daniel did in his live video, but none the less I love the way this one came out, and now I think I need to play more with my Qor watercolours! I did film my process to share with you all!

Altenew Fresh Start Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey friends! Today I am thrilled to be participating in Altenew’s Fresh Start Blog Hop! You can see the entire Fresh Start Collection here!

I have a couple projects to share with you all today, but I will kick things off with this gem using the Airbrushed Flowers Stamps, dies and stencil.

I started off by inking up the background panel in a brown gradient, then adding some silhouettes of the flowers and leaves in the same brown in the background.

I then stamped out the flowers and leaves on some watercolor paper and painted them up using the Altenew Artist’s Watercolours and die cut those out layering them on the card front. Keeping the sentiment simple with a little Hello to to finish it off!

For my second card I white embossed the large floral in the Enchanted Roses stamps set on some kraft coloured cardstock.

I then kept it simple using Tea Party and Green Hills mixed with a little Green Meadows to paint them out. Kraft paper does not take watercolour as well as watercolour paper, but I kept the water to a minimum and it worked out so well! Stamping “Live” with the Limestone ink and outlining it with some white really set it off, and a small flag pannel finished off the rest of the sentiment!

Giveaway Prizes! $300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 10 winners!
