The Greeting Farm – August Preview Day 1

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first day of previews for The Greeting Farm! This month’s release is absolutely amazing!

We are kicking thing off with Mini-Remix Friend! I love when we get mini’s of some of the larger stamps! They are always so fun to put together on a card! I did pull out my watercolour while I painted this one beside my fire at the camp site.

Friends with Fins

Hey everyone! Today I have a sweet little fish card. Using some My Favorite things products!

I pulled out my Schminke watercolours and painted up all the fish in the Friends with Fins stamp set. I stamped them out with Distress Ink Antique Linen. Then I fussy cut them all out once they were painted.

The background started with a blend from light to dark blues. Adding the white rays over the top with the pigment ink, then giving it a bit of a finished edge with the brown distress oxide.

Adding a few sequins and tiny enamel dots finished off this card.

The Greeting Farm – June Previews Day 3

Hey all! Welcome back to the third day of previews for The Greeting Farm! Today we have a sweet sentiment set called You.

I have been playing around with watercolouring my own foliage and floral. So for this card, I tried pulling out what I have been working on and putting them onto my card. I am fairly happy with how this came out, they are a sweet little line of leaves and buds down the one side, with the super uplifting sentiment from 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!

Technique Junkies June Release

Hey everyone! Welcome back to another new release showcase for Technique Junkies

Sometimes you run into these stamps that you just have to colour, that is what happened with me and the new Nautical Doodles from Technique Junkies.

So I pulled out some of my watercolours and went to work filling this in. The fun in colouring this stamp was that I didn’t need to spend time on shading, everything is just one layer of colour on it. I personally love the way it came out!

Make sure you jump around and see what the rest of the team has created for this fun release!

Hey everyone! It is that time of the year again, when Justine goes crazy and organizes a ton of us cardmaking youtubers into a super fun hop full of prizes and inspiration!

I blew up the Hellebores digital image from Power Poppy onto my watercolour paper, then painted it up with my Daniel Smith Paints.

Of course, being a Youtuber hop, this one has a video. There is also a 25$ Giftcard up for grabs over on my Youtube Channel. But you have to make sure you comment on the Youtube Video!
