Tiger Lily XL

Hey everyone,today I have a card and video for Power Poppy Stamps, hopefully to kick your mojo into high gear and remind you that no flowers have to follow traditional colours!

I have coloured the Sunflower Power Digital stamp, every colour under the sun! And this Tiger Lily XL is quickly becoming the same thing. I love that about florals, just because something “should be orange or pink… doesn’t mean I can not colour it teal!!

Seriously I love this flower, the size is amazing! And if you have seen any of my work with the digital stamps here at Power Poppy, I tend to blow them up and crop this, and this stamp gives me that same effect just in clear form! P.S. keep your eyes peeled for a new release, I have it on pretty good authority that another XL stamp is going to have to come live with me!

Oh yeah, of course I have a process video of colouring this lovely image up!

Thanks for stopping by,

Planning for Magnolias

Hey everyone Jessie here today sharing another watercolour card for Power Poppy with you all today! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it! I am thrilled that I will now be able to share an Inspire me Monday post with you all every month!
I stamped out the branch of flowers from the Planning For Magnolias stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink on Fluid watercolour paper. I painted the image with my Schmincke and Daniel Smith watercolours (there is a process video for you here in this post.) After everything was nice and dry I stamped the sentiment from the Prairie Cheer Set!
I have recently created a facebook group, that the wonderful Marcella told me to share with you all! The group is called Cards and Colour! In the group I am doing one or two live colouring events a month using different colouring mediums (There is even one coming up for Power Poppy, shhhh!!) It’s also a place where we chat about different things with colouring and stamping and share everyone’s wonderful makes, I would love you to come join us!
Now that is enough of my babbling and on to sharing the video!
Thanks for stopping by,

Hear No Evil

Magnolia Tilda Hear no Evil 1.jpg

Hey everyone! Today I have a soft and pretty card to share with you all. I have been using my Schminke watercolours now for a few months and absolutely LOVE them! I will have a youtube video coming up on them very shortly. But when I first got them this, Magnolia Tilda Hear No Evil, was one of the very first images I painted with them and it finally got on a card!

I do not have a list of the colours I used as I mix all of my watercolours and do not use them straight from the pan very often unfortunately, but, like I said above I will have a youtube video coming up and that will let you see more detail about how I choose what colours to mix together.

I used up a bunch of scraps of paper, a couple flowers from my stash some ribbon and lace and a doily, a little bit of cheese cloth tucked in here and there finished it off.

P.S. Canada Post may be going on strike on July 2nd and the Etsy store has been put into vacation mode while that all gets figured out, this card will be listed there as soon as they have it all sorted out.

Spectacular Soiree

SOG Soiree 1.jpg

Hey everyone, I have a couple of fantastic things to share with you all today! First of course is the image Spectacular Soiree by Some Odd Girl! Do you see all of the fastastic die cuts on this card, that show off that image ever so well! Well those dies all come from Diemond Dies, and I have the honour of being one of their Guest Designers!

SOG Soiree 2

The front of my card was cut with the Labels 2 Top Notes die set,  I cut the circle around my image with the Die-Normous Stack-Ems Circles Nesting Die Set, and I used the Natures Flourish Die to highlight my flower cluster.

If you would like to save 10% and get yourself some of these wonderful dies, I would love for you to use the code thanksjessie at checkout!
