I love these XL Greetings! They allowed me to freehand paint a flowers and put a nice bold sentiment right over the middle of it! Keeping it simple with just a big thanks!
I really enjoy being able to add my own art to a statement sentiment!

Hey friends! Welcome to my last post and video for 2020! Just remember going into 2021, no matter what happens just Be Kind!
So I pulled out one of my favorite sets from 2020, called Be Kind from Simon Says Stamp. I used some OLD sticky back canvas (that’s not really sticky anymore) and some watercolour ground so I can use my favorite medium!
Once I watercoloured up the leaves, I then took some inktense to finish off all the little details! I do have a process video, hope you enjoy!
Hey all! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all that good stuff!
Here in Saskatchewan we are only allowed to gather with those in our household, so that has lead to my son playing video games, my fiancé playing video games, so I am in the craft room for a while!
I pulled out the Majestic Mistletoe set from Altenew and pulled out my watercolours. Stamping it out with some no lines ink and painting the leaves as well as the sentiment and a light wash in the background tuned out so much fun on this card! Finishing it off with a few drops!
I hope you all are having a wonderful day today, reguardless if it is a lot smaller then normal, like my families Christmas is, or if you are blessed to be able to spend it with all your love ones!

Starting off with my first project was the stamp set that jumped out at me first! The foxes from the Let’s Curl Up stamp set.
This cute little guy just had to meet some of my watercolours! I also used some of the greenery, bending it so I can use it on both sides. Mounting the watercolor pannel on some Tangy orange cardstock really finished this one off! I also stamped the sentiment is the same ink as the image then painted over top of it with watercolor so that it matched the same look as the rest of the card.
For my second project to share with you all today, I pulled out my markers and some distress Oxides and had a real good time! It even lead to me recording a video!
TheSweet Safari stamp and die set just screamed make a bright fun card! So I obliged!
I will let the video for this one give you all the fun details!
Stamptember is always a thrilling event for the entire month over at Simon Says Stamp! There are tons of things to scavenge around the website to find, deals, freebies new stamp sets everyday!
I got to play with the Detail Elm Leaf Die, this one is so pretty! I cut it out with scraps of Arches Coldpress watercolour paper. (This stuff is to expensive to waste I keep all my scraps!) Using some of my Daniel Smith Watercolours I added a splash of watercolour onto the die cuts then layered them onto some grey cardstock. Adding a sentiment from the Hey Bestie stamp set.
Hey everyone. Welcome to the United we Craft Blog Party! I hope everyone is doing well in their social distancing, quarantining or work. Whatever it is you are doing right now.
I know my world has been full of work. Where I am, most businesses are closed or doing curbside pick ups. I have worked in construction for over a decade, thus far I am still working full time and then some.
But! Crafting is still my way to relax after work. And I love sharing projects with you all! So while I haven’t been able to take any extra crafty pictures, or things. I will share some of those with you all this weekend. I do have a fun card to share for this blog party!!
I had so much fun watercolouring up this set of leaves in two different colour ways, then adding them to a tone grey piece of paper where I used Distress Oxides to stencil on a circle.

Hey all! Today I am back with some more watercolouring! It has kinda become my obsession lately!
I stamped them out with Tea Dye Distress Ink, then used my Mexico palette to paint this one up, I am so happy with how soft the colours came out, and how stamping in light ink and not adding the character faces back in creates suck a different look from this stamp set.
I always start with a light wash of colour, just to get rid of the white of the paper, and ease the intimidation of painting it! I love working in light layers of colours over dry paper.
I then slowly worked my way across the cacti, addint layers of greens and yellows and building up the depth till I got to the finished card!
I chose not to stamp a sentiment on the card front and add it to the inside, when I decide who I am giving it to and what sentiment I need.
Hey all! Welcome back to day 2 of previews for The Greeting Farm.
Today we are sharing a new set called Bouquet, and I played with the “Mexico Palette” again when painting these pretty florals up!
I stamped it out with Tea Dye Distress ink then started painting it up, I love working in layers and creating depth on the card, adding a little gray dropped shadow to some of the florals and the sentiment really finished this one off!
