Hey everyone! It’s getting ever so close to a brand new year! And this card could be used to celebrate just that occasion. I used Let’s Celebrate from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. I stamped it out with Ranger Archival Ink on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs hot press watercolour paper. I painted this image with my watercolours (Daniel Smith, Golden Qor, and W&N Cotman).
Here is the speed painting video of me painting this image, there was roughly 3 1/2 hours of footage I used and sped up for this 15 minute video! I hope you like it!
This card was super fun to make and aside from the painting I kept it rather simple a few layers of patterned paper, flowers, ribbon and a few sequins.

Hey everyone! Christmas is so close, and I am almost ready!! One of the last things I do to prepare is a bunch of baking and this past weekend that included a crazy amount of cookie baking (I think its my sons favorite activity). So here I am scrapbooking a few instagram pictures of the cookies we made on the weekend.
I am a subscriber to the Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit, and on the member forum on facebook, Kimberly gave us a weekend challenge and this is the layout I did for the challenge. The recipe that needed to be used for the challenge was using an image she posted as inspiration for the layout (that is where my stenciled backround came in to play), include a minimum of three fonts in your title, use stamping on your project (this is difficult to see on my layout but on the bright green paper I stamped falling snow in versamark and embossed it in silver), include gold or silver, and use a minimum of three patterned papers.
It was a challenge for me to make sure I had everything included that is for sure! I rarely follow a recipe or sketch for my layouts, but it was fun to play along!

Here it is folks! My first project for the Scrapadabadoo Design Team. I got to play with the Indigoblu Kit in a Box, the gilding this creates is simply stunning and I am in love. Did you take notice that I made a shaker card with a vellum front and filled it with the mega flakes? I think it is so awesome that you can see them through, they move around its awesome. The shaker part of the card is 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″, I used foam squares around the outside that are 1/4″ wide then created a mask for the center out of scrap paper 2″ x 3 1/4″, so that I could use flitterglue around it and on the sides of the foam and use the mega flakes on that as well. The butterfly was covered in Flitterglu then I used the Mega Flakes on it as well. I then wrapped and tied some Twine, similar to the Burlap String around the shaker element and tied a pretty bow. The wood veneer saying yay is from my stash, I am not sure if you can use any fun little element here. Below it I stamped my sentiment on a banner I had die cut ages ago, you could easily cut a strip of paper, cut a V in each end and fold it to create a similar look. I then adheared the whole shaker onto a piece of scrap striped patterened paper, it looked like the cardbase needed something more to it so I took some Distress ink in Dried Marigold, and Worn Lipstick. Mixed those together and added a bunch of water and just did a light scribble of it with a brush right on the card base. Thanks for stopping by Hugz Jess
Wow, lets chat about this technique from the Watercolor For Cardmakers Class, Swarup Murthy taught this lesson, and boy what a lesson it was. I am semi pleased with the results. Would for sure skip the enamel dots when I attempt this again. But this lady makes it look ever so easy, and lets be honest, this was one of the most challenging lessons I had run into in this class. I will attempt it again, hopefully this weekend so be on the lookout for that.
There is a closer shot of the flower the lines you are seeing in the flowers are not the stamped line, they are actually dropped in with watercolour. I use a Windsor and Newton, compact Cotman watercolor pallet, on Canson 140lbs coldpress watercolour paper. The sentiment is from one of me flower sets from whimsy stamps, I believe it is on the Hibiscus and Lily set, but will have to check for sure.
