Today, I’m sharing a Taylored Expressions watercolored panel for my April 2017 calendar.
Today, I’m sharing a watercolored card created with Penny Black supplies.
I watercolored the 40-445 Flower Box image, which I stamped with VersaFine ink on watercolor paper, with Zig Clear Color Real Brush markers, watercolor pencils and watercolors. Once dry, I trimmed the panel down and added it to a custom-sized card base.
I die cut the 51-340 Dream Big sentiment twice (for added depth) and added it to the image over a vellum circle.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS friendship card created with Penny Black supplies. It was so relaxing to watercolor bright flowers given the rain and overcast we’ve been experiencing here in the Pacific Northwest.
I stamped and heat-embossed one of the images from the 30-346 Perfect Pairing stamp set on Arches watercolor paper and colored it with Zig brushes and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. After the panel was dry, I stamped a sentiment from 30-344 Sunny Wishes and adhered the panel to an A2 card base.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS Valentine created with Penny Black supplies. This postman hedgehog is making his rounds with Valentines!
I stamped the hedgehog image, from the 30-271 Share A Hug stamp set, on watercolor paper and colored it with a variety of mediums, including watercolor pencils, Zig markers and Distress inks. I cut a frame for the image from patterned paper in my stash. I die-cut the sentiment, from the 51-284 Filled With Love set, twice for extra depth. I added the sentiment to the frame with foam adhesive.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a friendship card created with Avery Elle supplies. I don’t believe that I’ve ever created a frog card before!
I stamped the Avery Elle Ribbit Ribbit images on Arches Watercolor Paper with VersaFine Ink and colored with ZIG Brush Markers. I also used a Zig marker to add color to the background using the smooshing method. I cut the images with their corresponding dies and added to the background with foam adhesive, after stamping the sentiment on the watercolor background.
Hello! Today I’m sharing a CAS Valentine created with Penny Black supplies. This cat image makes me smile!
I stamped the cat image, from the 30-271 Share A Hug stamp set, on watercolor paper and colored it with a variety of mediums, including watercolors and watercolor pencils. I also painted a strip of watercolor paper with paint, and once dry, I die-cut the strip with one of the dies in the 51-284 Filled With Love set. I added the sentiment to the image with foam adhesive.
Hello! Today, I’m sharing a CAS holiday card created with Penny Black supplies.
I stamped the pair of cats from 30-317 Deck the Halls with Versafine ink and colored the image with watercolor pencils and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.
I cut the 51-084 Jingle… sentiment from watercolor cardstock which I had colored with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors and adhered to the watercolored panel.
Hello! Last week, I shared some of the pages of my 2017 calendar created with some of the Taylored Expressions November 2016 release products. Today, I’m sharing pages for November and December in which I’ve included the 3×4 Watercolor Panels – Calendar.
I like to craft seasonally and enjoyed working on the November and December pages now, even though they’re for next year.
Hello – it’s a beautiful fall day here in the Pacific Northwest, but rains are in the forecast for the next week! I’m sharing another CAS Halloween card featuring the Penny Black 30-318 Bewitched stamp set. (I blogged a card using a cat image from this stamp set here.)
I colored the adorable hedgehog with watercolor pencils and paint, and when dry, I fussy-cut the image, as well as the pumpkin balloon.
To frame my image, I cut a partial circle in a rectangular panel, which I then dry-embossed. I watercolored a teal blue background, onto which I stamped the hedgehog image again (to get the balloon string), when the panel was dry.
I cut the sentiment from watercolored cardstock with 51-077 Eeek! and added it to the rectangular panel (for extra depth I cut a second sentiment and glued the two together).
Before adhering the watercolor hedgehog to the background with foam adhesive, I glued down a small fence created with the 51-073 Haunted Hallow die set.
First of all, a confession. I’ve had this stamp set on my work table for a month. Last week, I looked at the set and mentally thought, “Darn it, I meant to make a card with that before Halloween,” thinking Halloween had already passed! How nuts is that?! That’s what happens when you’re working on projects a season ahead. Thank goodness October is still out there!
Back to the card, I stamped the cat and pumpkin image with VersaFine ink on Strathmore watercolor paper, coloring him with watercolor pencils and Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I fussy-cut the image and set it aside.
I sponged Mustard Seed Distress Ink onto a card base through a vellum circle, and I stamped the cat image again on the sponged circle. I adhered the fussy-cut cat to the image with foam adhesive. I die cut the “BOO” sentiment with 51-077 Eeek! from foam and white cardstock, adding it to a dark gray cardstock strip. To finish off the card, I stamped and die cut the bat with 30-249 Spooky Spheres and 51-075 Boo Crew.
