Video Tutorial - Lawn Fawn - Water Coloring a Fun Halloween Scene

(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:




To create my card, I stamped all of my images onto Canson XL watercolor paper and then colored them with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I used the following colors:
Dog in pumpkin costumer: Dark Brown, Brown
Pumpkin Costume: Brown, Orange, Dark Brown
Dog in Witch Costume: Brown, Light Brown
Witch skirt: Black
Witch Hat: Black, Violet, Light Violet
Pumpkin bucket: Orange
Bone: Light Gray

I then cut out all of the images with the Coordinating Happy Howloween Die Cuts from Lawn Fawn.  This stamp set is so fun to play with, it's like paper dolls with puppies! :)  It's so fun to pick out their little outfits and dress them up :)

Next, I created my galaxy night sky background using my Gansai Tambi 36 set Watercolor Paint set.  Next, I cut out the tree frame and the little hillside using the Leafy Tree Backdrop - Portrait Die Set from Lawn Fawn.  I then stamped some bones from the stamp set onto the hillside using some Versamark Ink and some white embossing powder.  I then adhered the frame die and the hillside die to the watercolor panel with some Scor Tape (1/8 inch).  I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base with foam tape.  I then stamped the sentiment with some Versamark Ink onto some black cardstock and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then adhered it with foam tape.  I then adhered the puppies to the panel with foam tape.  I added some Metallic Gold Confetti Mix Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to the panel for a fun touch.  Finally,  I added some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes and nose of the puppies to make them pop.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Hugs!!!

VideoTutorial - Sweet Stamp Shop New Release - Watercolor Painting and Distress Ink Watercoloring

Hi everyone!  I have a super cute set of notecards to share with you today using the brand new just released Merry Cactus Stamp Set from Sweet Stamp Shop.  I have a video tutorial to share showing how I put these cards together:
(To watch on YouTube, click HERE )

And here's a picture:
These cards are super simple, but super fun to create and would be really easy to reproduce for the holidays.  To create the cards, I used some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.  I rubbed the pad onto a palette and then with a paintbrush, added some water and painted the watercolor background.  I then used my Zig Markers and a water brush to color the images.  I used Green and Light Green for the cactus and Dark Brown for the pot.  I added some sequins from my stash to finish it off.  Again, super easy cards to make, but fun! :)

I hope you enjoyed today's video.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Huge hugs!

Video Tutorial - Sweet Stamp Shop New Release - Distress Oxide Inking

Hi everyone!  I'm so lucky to be designing this month for Sweet Stamp Shop.  I got to play with their brand new release and today's video showcases a brand new stamp set called "That's What She Said."  It's such a fun tongue in cheek set and if you ever watched the TV show The Office, you'll get a kick out if it, I'm sure.  It's also a great birthday set for standard birthday cards.  Here's my video:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:




To create these cards, I inked some distress oxide ink onto the panel (for the pink, I used Picked Raspberry, for the gift box, I used Salty Ocean).  I then colored the images with my Zig Markers and a water brush, added the sentiments to the Kraft panel using the same Oxide ink, added the sentiment with black ink to the main panel, then popped the images with foam tape.  Super simple but fun.  To purchase the stamp sets, head over to Sweet Stamp Shop.

Video Tutorial - Honey Bee Stamps - Creting a Fun Fall Card with Watercolor, Distress Oxide Inks, and Glitter Paste

Hi everyone!  It's Christine here for Butterfly Reflections Ink and I have a new card and video tutorial to share with you today.  I'm really excited to share today's project.  It uses a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps.  I was blown away with Honey Bee Stamp's most recent release and I bought almost the entirety of it from Vanessa's shop.  Here's today's video:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:





To create today's card, I first created the background.  To do that, I inked a piece of Canson XL Watercolor Paper (cut slightly smaller than an A2 sized card base) with Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide InkCandied Apple Distress Oxide Ink, and Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink.  I then spritzed some water from my Distress Sprayer onto the panel and then let it dry.  Next, I used a heart stencil from my stash and applied some Gold Glitter Paste to the stencil, which resulted in the beautiful gold hearts you see on the panel.  Next, I stamped the Forest Friends Stamp Set from Honey Bee Stamps onto some Canson XL Watercolor paper and then painted the image with my Zig Markers and my Detailer Water Brush.  I used the following Zig Markers:
Bear: Dark Brown, Brown, Light Pink, Pink (for cheek), and Black
Hedgehog: Brown, Light Brown, Light Pink
Basket: Light Brown, Cornflower Blue
Bunny: Gray, Light Gray, Light Pink, Light Blue (For slight shadow on tail)
Bird: Brown, Yellow, Orange (for beak) and Light Pink

I then cut the image out using the Coordinating Forest Friends Honey Cut Dies and then adhered it to my distressed panel with foam tape.  Next, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink onto some black cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then cut it out and adhered it with foam tape. I then adhered the entire panel to a standard A2 sized card base.  What do you think?

Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Video Tutorial - Mama Elephant - Using Embossing Paste to Create a Fun Background on your Card

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.  I have a new card and video tutorial to share with you today featuring the adorable Me and My Yet Stamp Set from Mama Elephant.  This stamp set is SO fun to work with, I literally can't put it down :)  Here's my video:
(To view on YouTube, click HERE)

And here are some pictures of my card:







To create my card, I first cut a piece of Neenah Desert Sand Kraft Cardstock to 4" x 5 1/4".  I then applied some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink and some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink to the Kraft cardstock and then added some water with my Distress sprayer for a little distress effect.  I then used a snowflake stencil from EK Success, placed it on top of my Kraft cardstock, and added some Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Sparkle Texture Paste over the stencil to create the glitter snowflakes (you could use any embossing paste that you have for this technique).  Next, I painted the Yeti with  my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush (I used Light Blue, Gray, Light Gray, Peacock Blue, and Sugared Almond Pink for the Yeti) and then coated him with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush.  I so painted the little boy and the little girl (skin tones for both here Flesh Color, Blush, and Sugared Almond Pink; Girl's hat and jacket were Violet and Light Violet, scarf was Red, Hair was Dark Brown and Brown; Boy's hat and scarf were Red and Cornflower Blue, jacket was Cornflower Blue, Hair was Brown and Light Brown).  I then cut the images out and cut slits in the arms with an Exacto knife so the kids could rest in the Yeti's arms.  I then stamped my sentiment from the Sentiments from a Yet Stamp Set from Mama Elephant with Versamark ink onto black carestock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I tapered the end to give it a "V" shape and then adhered it and the Yeti onto the snowflake panel.  I then adhered that to some black cardstock and then adhered the entire panel to a white A2 sized card base.  I also added some dark blue twine to the top.  What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today.  Thanks so much as always for stopping by.  Hugs!
