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.
Supplies: Affiliate links used where possible at no additional cost to you. All funds are put back into my blog and youtube channel.
Hey everyone! I am still plugging along on the 30 day colouring challenge! I pulled out one of the newer sets from Simon Says Stamp called Chillin’ Frenchies!
I have not played with my pencil’s in a long time. Also, seeing as my son’s baseball season is coming to an end I thought it was the perfect opportunity to make a fun card for the coach from all the boys on the team. I don’t normally gush about my boy, or people in our lives. But my goodness did he get a great coach this year, he went above and beyond doing extra practices with the boys, and helping them become little men.
So I coloured this one up on some kraft coloured cardstock. Super happy with this clean and simple card. Now I need to colour up the rest of the dogs in this set!
Hey everyone! Today I am back with a sweet watercolor card featuring Simon Says Stamp Delicate Flowers!
I painted it up with my Daniel Smith Paints (all links are at the bottom of the post). I had tons of fun masking and creating this little cluster of flowers, then making them all sorts of colours. Bright colour, not my usualy more vintagy tones. But I did bring back that vintage tone with the Hematite Burnt Scarlet in the background.
Finishing it off with a the comfort word from one stamp set and a couple lines from the Tiny Words set and I was over the moon with how this one came out!
Hey everyone! Today I have a super sweet little card to share with you all.
Debby Hughes is one of my favorite card makers, in a long list of people I adore. But she often makes a card that gets to me to buy a stamp set. That is what happened here. I bought the Comfort & Prayers stamp set because of a card she made, so here is my version of her card.
Now I need to make another one using this set that my own brain comes up with.
But for this one I stamped out the butterflies and pulled out my Stoneground Paint Co. watercolours to paint up these vintage butterflies. It took me about 2 hours but I love sitting and watercolouring pretty cards, so I find the process super relaxing.
You can find all the supplies I used on this card linked below!
