Chillin’ Frenchies

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!

Delicate Flowers

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!

Comfort & Prayers

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!

Beautiful Flowers

Hey all, today I have a pretty flower card to play along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme this week is No Designer Paper. Which, thankfully is pretty easy for me, I do not use a lot of patterned paper anyway.

I filmed a process video of this card. I had 2 hours and 45 minutes of footage so this video is a longer one for me. As per usual I painted in tons of layers. and am super happy with how this one turned out.

The video will be here as soon as it finishes uploading!

Spring Flowers

Hey everyone! I have a new floral card and video for you all today, featuring a couple older sets from Simon Says Stamp.

I played with my Pink Fresh Studio watercolours again on this one. I really do love liquid watercolours they are super fun to play with. The embossing keeps the watercolours where I want them without splashing outside of the lines. I really do love having the tape boarding around my watercolour card pannels, especially when the embossing goes outside of where the painting is.

You watch the entire process video below!

Bouquet of Thanks

Hey all! I am still playing along with the 30 coloring challenge. I had a super busy day, and almost forgot to put this one up!

I used the Bouquet of Thanks stamp from Simon Says again. For a completely different look then the first time I used it! You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

I stamped and embossed the image, then got to playing with watercolours. Love of water and just dropping the pigment in and letting it do its magic! It was a super fun and simple card to put together!

Sketched Flowers

Hey all! I have lots of things and goals I want to accomplish this year, and part of it is branching out and working with other companies. So today I decided to play along with Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge. This weeks theme is Something New, which made it pretty easy.

Simon Says Stamp - Sketched Flowers - Jessie Banks

I pulled out a brand new set, that I haven’t used yet from Simon Says Stamps called Sketched Flowers. I also used a new watercolor to me Daniel Smith’s Sleeping Beauty Turquoise.

I had so much fun painting this piece and playing with some colours I haven’t used much, or at all before.
