He is Worthy Watercolor with Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique

Todays project is my second Design Team card for Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique and it's gorgeous while easy.  I started out by arranging my stamps on a 4.5" x 6" piece of watercolor paper in my MISTI.  You'll want to use a stamp positioner with this project because watercolor paper can be tricky to stamp on with the uneven surface.  I stamped on the smoother side of my paper using Archival ink.  I chose Archival because it's waterproof and a dark black.  It did take several stampings to get each word smoothly even.  Because I stamped it several times, creating several layers of ink, I set it aside to dry for an hour or so before moving on to adding my watercolors. After taping my piece down to a flat surface (I used a small craft cutting board), I wet down the entire piece with a modest amount of water and began to add paint.  I used blues, teal, pink and purple, being careful about the teal and pink mixing too much to avoid mud.  You also want to be careful about adding too much water so that you avoid getting a lot of puddles.  You can sop up any puddles with a paper towel; you don't want to let them dry like that because you can get ugly edges and hidden mud.  It doesn't show in the pictures well, but I also added a shimmer spray over the top when I was done adding color.  This step adds shimmer (obviously) but also helps to blend it a bit as well.  After it was dry, I ran it through my Big Shot with a stitched rectangle die and then trimmed added a 1/8 inch wide strip of Scor-tape to each side. After removing the backing one side at a time, I added black microfine glitter and burnished it into the tape with my finger.  After mounting to a top folding cardbase, the card is complete.  Here is the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Creative Worship Worthy King
Creative Worship Words of Life: Actions
Neat&Tangled Christmas Journaling
Ranger Archival Jet Black ink
Canson XL Watercolor paper
MISTI
Gansai Tambi watercolors
Imagine Crafts Shimmer Spritz
Stitched Rectangle die
Scor-tape: 1/4" and 1/8"
Black Microfine Glitter

Thanks for joining me today!  Don't be afraid or intimidated to get started with watercolors; I know it can be daunting because it looks so easy when other people do it.  This style is a perfect place to start as it's just dabbing on paint and there's no "right" way to do it.  Let me know if you have any questions and I'll see you next time.

For His glory and much love,

Bee Popcard by Art Impression with Copics and Distress Oxides


 I'll be honest, this card...I got frustrated with this card and I'm sure we've all been there with projects we just about gave up on.  However, it's so dang cute and I had already put a lot of work and supplies into it, so I kept going.  As much as I love Art Impressions, someone dropped the ball with this set.  They don't provide clear instructions and there are stamps with coordinating dies that I couldn't figure out what they were supposed to be.  But don't let that stop you.  Hopefully, my video will make your bee building a breeze, as I've tried to work out some of the kinks.  The stamps and coordinating dies come together, but you do need a separate template die to build your bee.  Here is the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Art Impressions Bee PopCard set
Art Impressions PopCard template
Bristol Smooth cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Distress Oxide inks
Vellum
Black Cardstock
Copic Markers
  • C6, 8, 9 and Y02, 08, 17
Pre-embossed Honeycomb patterned paper
Woodgrain patterned paper
Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen
Imagine Crafts Sparkle Spritz
Little Things Lucky Dip Marigold
Matte Medium
Tombow Mono Multi
Foam square adhesive
Scor-tape

It took a bit of finagling, but I was really pleased with my finished product and I think my little nephews will enjoy it.  Thanks for joining me and I'll catch you later!

Zig Butterfly Flight with Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique

 Hello!  Todays project is the first of three Design Team projects for Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique and I'm so excited to be working with them.  I've stamped and masked my butterflies starting with the pink butterfly and ending with the yellow one, using Altenews Bejeweled stamp set.  I stamped the butterflies using Archival ink because it's waterproof and wont run or smear when any water based medium is applied.  Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper was the surface is chose to work on.  Zig Clean Color markers are a brush tipped water-based marker that you can use with water to create a lovely variety of watercolor effects, without having to go into actual watercolors and using them with watercolor paper gives perfect results because the paper is designed to accept a lot of water without pilling or warping.  You can use these markers with Bristol Smooth cardstock, but I don't suggest using much water with it.

Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel.  Supplies are listed and linked below.

Supplies:
Canson XL 140lb watercolor paper
Altenew Bejeweled stamp set
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die
Masking paper or Post-It notes
Archival Jet Black ink
Zig Clean Color markers
Orange: 70, 50, 51, 52
Pink: 25, 26, 27, 28
Green: 33, 38, 42

If you are at all interested in watercolors, give these markers a try.  They are so vibrant, fun to use and you can create beautiful projects with ease.  Let me know if you have any questions; I'm always happy to help.  Thank you for stopping by.  I so appreciate every like, share and subscribe here on my blog and my YouTube channel; every one helps.

Under the Sea with a Distress Oxide Background

 Summer is beginning to wind down, but it's not over yet.  I've been playing with my Distress Oxide re-inkers to see what they can do and created a few backgrounds (here's the video with those).  Stamping Bella had a new release in the beginning of July with Mermaids, fishes and lots of other sea life which I couldn't resist.  Flipping through my backgrounds and going through some new stamps, these two just fit together like sun and sand.  I colored my images with Copic markers and created a Shaker card with elements on the inside and outside to create a bit more dimension.  If you are new to Copics or are interested in learning more about them, I highly recommend Sandy Allnock's Copic Jumpstart class at art-classes.com.  Here is the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Shaker Shake-up with Heat Resistant Acetate

 Todays project is a bit of a spin on a Shaker card.  Instead of a die cut window with stamping on the surrounding panel, the stamped image is on the window, making the shaker window the true focal point.  I created this using Heat Resistant Acetate.  Because it's heat resistant, you can stamp and emboss on it without it shrinking, warping or twisting.  A powder tool is key when using the acetate with embossing powder because of how prone to static acetate is.  I rub my powder tool over the entire area I'm going to stamp and heat emboss to ensure that my image comes out clearly.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Concord & 9th Hello Lovely stamp set
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle dies
Versamark
Wow Turkish Nights embossing powder
Hot Off The Press Heat Resistant Acetate
3M Foam tape
Scor-tape
Little Things Sequin Mixes
  • Gold Dust

Mermaids Mean Summer

 I LOVE these mermaids.  And I want to go swimming with them.  I had this watercolor background sitting on my studio table and that was the inspiration for the card.  It has a fantasy ocean feel that made the mermaids a perfect fit.  I don't have footage of the background in the video, but it was very simple.  Using a wet on wet technique, I added lines of blues, purple and some teal, then laid in a bit a gold and let dry.  My mermaids are colored with Copics and finished off with a sparkle pen.  Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Trust His Word featuring Concord & 9th

 I was so excited and appreciative the first time I saw the Faith and Love set by Concord & 9th.  While more and more companies are producing more faith based sets now, it's been a long time coming.  With Bible Journaling rising in trend, it's having a ripple effect into cardmaking and I love it.  As I sit, writing this post and watching the myriad of colorful birds at my birdfeeder, I am again reminded of how creative God is.   I like to talk to God while I drive and often look up at the sky, so that was the initial inspiration for the design.   He is the center or focus of this card so I used "His" as the center stamp and placed the other words around it until I liked the composition.

The design for this card is simple; a few stenciled clouds and heat embossing with glitter embossing powder.  Keeping the background light and simple allows for the glitter powder to stand out and catch attention.  Any time you want to use a glitter embossing powder, I suggest you do that as your last step.  Anything you do over or on top of the glitter powder (obviously after it's been heat set) will end up removing some of your glitter.   Here is the link to the video on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock
My Favorite Things Wonky Stitches die
Concord & 9th Faith and Love stamp set

Leather Look Father's Day with Distress Oxides and Concord & 9th

Father's Day is certainly one of those occasions that requires a masculine design and it can be a challenge to create something different every year.  Woodgrain is a texture that is perfect for masculine cards, but I wanted to do something different and thought of leather.  I combined the emboss resist technique and ink blending with Distress Oxide inks to create this card and I really love how it turned out.  Here's the link to the video on my YouTube channel and my supplies are listed below.

Text Hugs with Concord & 9th

 I've been on a roll with Concord & 9th products lately; I just can't help it.  I get so many ideas and it's hard to narrow it down sometimes.  That's not a bad thing though.  Hopefully, my ideas and designs will inspire your ideas and designs and we'll all be happier as a result.  The world needs more cuddles and hugs anyway.

This card started with having the hugs die cuts left over from other projects, whose videos are linked below if you're curious, and using gray helped to ground the card as well as help the teal and purple tones stand out.  The tone on tone gray text background served to soften the design as well as give it a coziness.  To create the frame, you can use any two rectangle dies; just make sure they're spaced evenly before you run it through your die cutting machine.  Here's the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Concord & 9th Cuddles and Hugs stamp and die sets
Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock and ink
Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock (base)
Tombow Mono Multi glue
Little Things Sequin mixes
  • Pearl Necklace
  • Starshine

Traingle Turnabout with Concord & 9th

 Welcome!  Concord & 9th are becoming known for their innovative products, and this triangle turnabout stamp is no exception.  After each time you stamp, you turn it 90 degrees and stamp again until you've stamped 4 times and completed the rotation.  The possibilities for designs is really endless as you can do a minimalist approach with only one stamp, heat emboss a layer to and texture and dimension, emboss resist, 4 different colors (like I did) or monochromatic with 4 shades of the same color; so many options.  I went with really bright, fun, tropical colors and finished it off with a bold black sentiment and sequins.
Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Concord & 9th Triangle Turnabout stamp
Concord & 9th Lovely stamp

Ink Blended Rainbow Hugs with Distress and Concord & 9th

 Hello!  As you know, I love bright colors; they make you happy.  Ink blending being one of my favorite techniques; it's one I use often and I love experimenting with new color combos to see what I can create.  Emboss resist, ink blending and die cuts are all employed to create this bright, happy, punchy card. 

If you have trouble with ink blending, I have a few tips for you.  The first is to change your cardstock.  I used Neenah 110 lb Solar White for years and I got good results, but it took some work.  I heard some good things about Strathmore Bristol Smooth and once I tried it, I never looked back.  Bristol Smooth is a bit heavier and smoother than Neenah, but Neenah isn't a bad cardstock.  I still use it for sturdy cardbases.  The second tip is to hold your blending tool at an angle so that the entire surface of the tool is not in contact with the cardstock.  Use circular motions and little pressure; more pressure creates more friction making is harder to move the tool around. 

Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel where I demonstrate how to create this project from start to finish.  My supply list is below.

Supplies:
Concord & 9th Cuddles and Hugs stamp and dies
Bristol Smooth cardstock
Neenah Solar White 110 lb (cardbase)
MISTI
Distress Inks (original)
  • Mermaid Lagoon
  • Squeezed Lemonade
  • Abandoned Coral
  • Wilted Violet

Summer inspired Mixed Media DT project with Infinity Engraving

 Hey there!  Todays project was inspired by summer and my husbands step-mom.  She is such a wonderful, sweet, kind and generous lady.   I have been thinking about what to do for her canvas for quite some time, as her tastes are simple and mellow.  I used her favorite colors as a starting point and her love for gardening as a theme. 
 Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and the supply list is below.  Feel free to leave any questions in the comment section here or on YouTube and my supply list is below.
Supplies:
8x10 Canvas
Infinity Engraving die cuts

  • White Linen
  • Lemon Zest
  • Fresh Lime
  • Cut Grass
  • Vibrant Turquoise

Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Pure Platinum
Imagine Crafts Sheer Shimmer Spritz
Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Moonstone
28 Lilac Lane Embellishment Mixes

Mixed Media can be intimidating, but don't let fear stop you from learning, creating and growing.  I don't always have a finished project in mind and my projects don't always turn out the way I imagined.  However, they always come from my heart and that's what's important in the end.  The person receiving or buying the piece finds beauty and meaning in it; that's the key to keep in mind.
See you next time!

Soft and Loose Watercolor Mother's Day Hugs Shaker with Concord & 9th

 We are almost half way through the year already and while I'm wondering where the time has gone, Mother's Day has quietly crept up.  I have three Mother's Day cards to make every year and I enjoy the creative challenge of doing something different.  Traditionally, flowers make an appearance and while my Mom and both MIL's enjoy flowers, I went a another direction.  This design is really versatile, perfect for birthday, thinking of you, encouragement and sympathy.  Starting with white embossing on watercolor paper, I used powdered watercolor paints to create a loose and soft emboss-resist background.  After that was dry, I die cut the "hugs" and the border edge detail.  To finish it up, I stamped an accompanying sentiment in the bottom right corner, built the shaker and mounted it to a card-base. 
Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supplies are list below.  If the idea of Watercolor is intimidating, try the loose technique demonstrated in my video.  It's really easy and so user-friendly, not to mention hard to mess up.

Supplies:
140 lb Watercolor paper
Concord & 9th Cuddles and Hugs stamp and die sets

Shaker Cards Galore

Hello!  I'm back with a new shaker card menagerie.  We finished up with AWANA for the year this week and I wanted something to give to my kids that was fun and personalized.  What's better than a shaker with your name on it?  I did each one a little different with their favorite colors in mind and did my best to keep the boys' cards' as masculine as I could as they are definitely in that "pink is for girls" phase.  3 of them are moving on to youth group next year and we'll certainly miss them.  

If you aren't familiar with AWANA, it's a program that spans for 4 years old - 6th grade that teaches kids about the Bible and Jesus at an age appropriate level.  I work with the 5th and 6th graders and we have so much fun while making sure they know we are there for them and are a support system if/when they need it.  

I only filmed one card because the process is the same for each card; I only changed colors of ink and paper between the girls' and boys' cards.  Here's the link to the video on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.

Supplies:
Boys Ink colors:
  • Lawn Fawn Lobster
  • Simon Says Stamp Orange Peel
  • LF Sunflower
  • SSS Fern
  • LF Fish Tank

One Layer Beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers

 Hello and Happy Easter to you and yours.  Todays project is lovely, simple, easy and one-layer. Watercolor paper is my first choice when using just about any water-based medium because it doesn't warp easily.  I wanted to layer the sentiment over the flowers, so I stamped the floral image and heat embossed over it, then added color.  I did it in that order so that I wouldn't have to wait for the flowers to dry before stamping and heat embossing.  If the flowers were still wet at all, I may not have achieved a clean stamped sentiment and the powder would have stuck everywhere, effectively ruining the project (no bueno).

Here is the link the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below.
Supplies:
Canson XL 140 lb watercolor paper
Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die
Archival Jet Black ink
MISTI
Penny Black Divine stamp
Mama Elephant His Love stamp set
Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen
Versamark
Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder
Zig Clean Color Markers
  • 83 Lilac
  • 81 Light Violet
  • 42 Turquise Green
  • 44 Deep Green
  • 51 Lemon

Neenah cardbase

Thanks for stopping by and hanging out with me.  As always, I'm happy to answer any questions and would love to know what you think.

Easter Triple Play

Todays post and video are done in a bit of a different style than usual.  I have 3 cards, all of an Easter theme celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus, utilizing experiments.  When I get new products, I like to play with them and experiment so I have a bin in my studio with several random bits.  These cards were created using a few of those panels.  I chose to do it this way because Easter has devolved into chicks, bunnies, toys and candy.  I wanted to convey it's true purpose and true meaning and I hope you enjoy.
Oh Happy Day Supplies:
Nuvo Glimmer Paste
Tanzanite Lavender
Peridot Green
Neat & Tangled Scalloped stencil
Bristol Smooth cardstock
Simon Says Stamp Cross die
Simon Says Stamp Oh Happy Day die
DCWV Gold Foil cardstock
Stick-It Sheet Adhesive
Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock base
Scor-tape

Start with a Bristol Smooth panel cut to 4"x 5.25" and tape the stencil down on the corners.  Smooth the lavender Nuvo paste over the top half and the green over the bottom half, blending the two colors in the middle.  Remove stencil while paste is still wet.  Set aside the panel to dry and immediately wash the stencil and palette knife.  The panel will take an hour or so to dry completely, but I let mine sit for several hours.  Once dry, center the cross die in the middle of the panel so that the pattern is even in the die and run it through your die cutting machine.  Give it a few passes; you may have to use your craft knife to help complete the cuts in a few places.  Cut the gold cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5" and adhere to the card base using Scor-tape.  Center the glitter paste panel and center it over the gold.  Apply Stick-It to the back of some gold cardstock and run the Oh Happy Day die with the gold cardstock through the die cutting machine.  Remove the die cut from the rest and remove all the little bits and pieces.  Arrange the die cuts over the glitter panel, remove backing paper and press down.  I started with Day because it was at the bottom and wanted to make sure it didn't hang off the edge of the glitter panel.  The card is complete.

In order listed above, I used the ink blending technique to add color to my panel.  Next, I applied the glimmer paste using the stencil and let that dry.  Once the paste was dry, I ran in through my die cut machine with the largest of the MFT Wonky Stitches dies.  Using vellum with Stick-It on the back, I stamped and heat embossed my images followed by die cutting them.  To finish up, I adhered the colored panel to the cardbase with Scor-Tape and layered the vellum images on the front.  Card completed.
