Let’s Stick Together

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.

MFT Stamps and Posca Paint Markers

Hey all! I have been on this kick of playing with new things, changing up my cards and using things that have been in my stash forever and not used.

With that in mind today’s card is incorporating Posca Paint Markers into my card making!

I started with some pre copic colored images using MFT Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes, and creating a background. I do have a process video of the background!

You Gnome Me

I have been playing with all sorts of things I have had in my collection for a long time, that have been neglected or not used at all!

So today I have my first card from my stash to share today! Today I pulled out the You Gnome Me set from MFT and kept it monocromatic with some blue pencils from my Luminance stash!

I really love the look on toned grey paper, I love seeing how much shade variation I can get while using the same pencils all the way thru.

Cute Chemists

Hey everyone! Here is my second entry to the MFT Stamps Card Design Superstar, this one is for the Coloring Virtuoso!

I pulled out the Cute Chemists stamp set and stamped the little guy and the puff of smoke in distress ink so it disappeared as I watercoloured this guy up. I have been loving watercolouring for quite some time, and am finally feeling fairly confident with it.

Slowly building up all the layers to bring this guy to life. then adding some additional smoke in behind him. He turned out ever so perfect!

Bring Out The Sunshine

Hey everyone! It is another season the Kathy Racoosin’s The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge. I love trying to make a project everyday for 30 days, even if I fail at the completed project everyday, I do get some colouring done everyday. Which, after all, is the point.

So for today’s card I used a stamp from MFT called Bring Out The Sunshine. I love MFT, we all know this but I have a great time playing with them regularly!

So, I am still on this super clean and simple card kick. For this one I did some no lines colouring, adding a little grass at her feet. the sentiment at the bottom and a little twine at the top finished off this sweet little card!

MFT Stamps – Piggy Pebbles

Hey everyone! Today I am back with a one layer card full of all different types of mediums!

I am loving all the stamps that My Favorite Things now is making with Stacey Yacula. Today I have pulled out the Piggy Pebbles set!

I started by stamping and masking out the pig and the sentiment. Masking it off I then embossed the raindrops, followed by inkblending the background. Then went at the image with my copic markers. But check out my complete process video!

Birthday Cake

Today I am playing along with My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I simplified this weeks sketch but am in love with what I came up with.

I do not often make cards without any stamped images filled with colouring. But when this die was release I needed it in my life, I love how this one turned out slightly wonkey and pretty pinks and yellow made me so happy creating this one!

I also have a super fun video of this one for you!

Gill Friends

Hey everyone. Can you believe it is almost the end of March, the snow is melting fast here! Spring is in the air, my son pulled out his bike and is impatiently waiting for me to make a trip to the city to get him a new skateboard. That is probably happening next weekend. I am pulling out bright vivid colours into my cardmaking, impatiently waiting for summer.

I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, this weeks theme is CUTE! I don’t spend a lot of time watching youtube videos lately, and yes I know I need to film some more. That is coming I have my ducks almost in a row again, I know I say that all the time. But I did watch Jennifer McGuire’s recent video about shadow box cards, I altered it a bit to create a dome card and still have a folding card in the back. But that was the basis of the card.

I pulled out the Gill Friends set from My Favorite Things. All links to products used in this card will be at the end of the blog post. I stamped and coloured all the fish in a no lines style, then fussy cut them out.

Creating the dome aquarium panel to lay on top of the wave stenciled background. I used a little fishing line to pop some of the fish up near the front. I am thrilled with how cute this card turned out. I may have to make a few more in this style!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed my little project. Now to head to the basement and do some filming!

It’s Mice Time to Celebrate

Hey everyone! Today I am again playing along with My Favorite Things Card Challenges.

I pulled out the new It’s Mice Time to Celebrate set for this fun card. Hand drawing the balloon I stamped the mouse in Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then pulled out my Stoneground Paints and created a fun little scene into the balloon.

This sketch was super fun! I would have never thought of painting a simple little scene in a balloon without it. I can’t wait for the next one!
