Altenew Under the Cherry Blossom Tree

Hey everyone!  Today I'm sharing a quick and easy card featuring the Under the Cherry Blossom Tree stamps and dies, from Altenew!  To make this card I stamped the cherry branches with VersaMark ink, and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder.  I did this several times to create the branches.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the cherry blossoms out of acetate to use as my masks.  Why didn't I think of this before?!?  I could see exactly where the mask was, so there were no gaps!  Then I colored all of the images with Prismacolor colored pencils.  Quick and easy!  I did make a YouTube video, if you would like to watch!

Wplus9 Little Dreamer

Hey everyone!  Today I'm sharing an easy watercolor card featuring Little Dreamers stamp and dies from Wplus9.  If you saw any of my haul videos lately, you know I have been obsessed with watercolors!  Today I am sharing how fun it is to play this inexpensive watercolor set from Prima.  To make this card I used watercolors to make the starry night sky background, as well as to paint the images to look soft and cuddly.  I also had to make some splatters of pearly white and gold with my Finetec Pearl Colors.  I have a card tutorial on YouTube if you would like to watch!

Happy Hippos Celebrate~My Favorite Things

Hey everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using the adorable new stamp set from My Favorite Things, Happy Hippos!  This was a easy shaker card using some new dies from MFT as well.  To make this card I colored my images with Copic markers.  Then I cut out the dies from Bristol Smooth cardstock, and used Distress Oxide Inks to color the die cuts.  I cut out the star out of Neenah 100 lb cardstock and added the shaker pouch.  Then I adhered all the pieces to my card panel.  I have a process video on my YouTube video, if you would like to check that out!

Neat & Tangled Beach Day

Hey everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using Beach Day stamp and dies, from Neat & Tangled.  What a fun summer stamp set this is!  To make my card I colored all the images with Ziggies, then coated several parts of each with Glossy Accents.  For the ocean waves and beach sand, I used Nuvo embellishment mousse.  Click below if you would like to see my tutorial on YouTube:

Red, White, and Anything but Blue!

Hey everyone!  The Blog Hops with Heart have a fun theme this month!  We are all sharing a project that is red, white and anything but blue!  If you came from Kelly's magical blog post, you are in the right place.  I love a color challenge, especially when I love the colors!

I was excited to play with my new Happy Hippos stamp set from MFT.  I really wanted to put a cute skirt on the girl hippo.  I was actually inspired by some vellum paper with little gold dots all over it from CTMH...but after looking all through my craft room, I couldn't find it.  But, this was a super simple one layer card that I colored with Copic markers.  I also used the banner from the Up in the Air stamp set from MFT, as well.

Now you are off to see what Wendy's Blog has in store for you!
