Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS friendship card featuring the Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin’ stamp set. (I previously shared a card with this set in this post.)
I stamped the images on Arches watercolor paper and colored them with watercolor pencils. I heat-embossed the sentiment on Poppyseed cardstock cut with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle Stackables set.
The background, cut with the largest die in the Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Stackables set, is dry-embossed with a Taylored Expressions folder.
Hello! I’m sharing another card featuring the Neat and Tangled Wild Ones set. (I shared one here as part of Neat and Tangled’s 5th birthday.)
I used the smooshing method to add Distress Oxide Orange Marmalade ink to Canson watercolor paper. Once dry, I stamped the giraffe image. I then added color for the spots, nose, ears, and mane with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I also used the smooshing technique on the background with Distress Oxide Broken China ink. The grass, on which I stamped the sentiment from the set, was colored with Mowed Lawn Distress ink and cut with the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die. I dry-embossed the background with a Sizzix woodgrain embossing folder.
Hello! Today, I am sharing a CAS punny apology card created with Taylored Expressions products.
I stamped and watercolored the images from Lookin’ Sharp Stamp & Die Combo. Once dry, I cut the images with their coordinating dies. I cut a ledge with Sitting Pretty which I shortened to fit the space. I applied the Broken China Distress Oxide ink behind the area where the cacti would be placed. The punny sentiment was cut with a die in the Banner Stacklets 4 set.
Hello! This past week, I saw the first leaf of the season fall, and I have heard that Starbucks will soon be serving Pumpkin Spice Lattes! I figured I needed to share any remaining summer-themed cards before we move completely into the fall and holiday seasons! My card features the Lawn Fawn Mermaid for You set.
I stamped and Copic-colored the mermaid images, cutting them with their corresponding dies. I used Distress Oxide inks to stamp the underwater foliage. The background was created using the smooshing technique on Canson watercolor paper.
Hello! I’m delighted to be on the Neat and Tangled blog today celebrating their 5th birthday as part of the design team reunion; I was one of the original design team members.
I hope you will head on over to the Neat and Tangled blog for the details – the products I used and how I created my card!
Congratulations Danielle and Happy Birthday Neat and Tangled!
Today, I’m sharing Taylored Expressions September and October watercolored panels for my 2017 calendar.
I colored the images, part of the 3×4 Watercolor Panels – Calendar set, with Distress Inks and added frames cut with a die in the Build a Scene – Calendar – 5×7 set. It’s been quite hot here in the Pacific Northwest, so it was fun to think about the fall days ahead, and watercoloring these panels was relaxing!
I have previously shared my April panel and my November and December panels.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS card featuring supplies from Lawn Fawn.
The Happy Howloween set includes lots of fun images for a fall scene, but I wanted to use the dogs in a summer scene. I stamped and heat-embossed the Happy Howloween dogs on a variety of watercolor papers and started coloring them with Distress Inks; in part, I was experimenting with which colors and watercolor papers I liked best. The ones shown were colored with Gathered Twigs on Arches (left) and Distress Oxide Vintage Photo on Strathmore (left).
I colored Canson watercolor paper with Distress Inks for the tree trunk, foliage and grass borders, and once dry, I cut those pieces with the Leafy Tree Backdrop – Landscape, Meadow Borders, and Grassy Border dies. For the background, I applied Distress Oxide Broken China on Canson watercolor paper using the smooshing method. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from the Hello Baby set with VersaFine ink. To create the frame I cut Arc Crafts White Birch with the largest die in the Stitched Square Stackables – Large set and then with a smaller square die included in a Lil’ Inker set I own. The card measures 4 1/2″ square.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a watercolored card created with the Penny Black 30-305 Smile All Day stamp set.
I stamped the image on to Arches Cold Press watercolor paper with VersaFine ink and colored it with watercolor pencils. Once dry, I masked the image, (I stamped the image on masking paper, fussy-cut it, and applied to the watercolor image), and applied Distress inks for the sky and grass with Clarity Stencil Brushes. In the past, I’ve watercolored the sky, but doing so causes the panel to curl. By applying the ink dry with the brush, the panel was relatively flat. After removing the mask, I stamped the sentiment, cut the image with a circle die, and added it to a card base created with patterned paper.
Hello! I’m sharing a “miss you” card featuring the Avery Elle Ribbit Ribbit stamp set.
I stamped the images on Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper and colored them with Zig Clean Color brushes. I used the Clarity stencil brushes to apply color to the card background to simulate water. I masked the first part of the heat-embossed sentiment from the Handwritten Notes set, which reads “I Miss You” since I had two frogs.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS watercolored thank you card featuring the Penny Black stamp set 30-418 Stitched Flowers from the BLISS 2017 release.
I stamped the floral image with VersaFine ink on Arches watercolor paper and colored it with watercolors, watercolor pencils, and Distress Inks. Once dry, I stamped the sentiment. I added the panel to a card base which I colored with Distress Inks to match the floral blooms. To finish it off, I added a die-cut frame cut from gray cardstock.
