Happy Purr-thday

Hi Guys!

I don't know how many times I said this, but I love challenges! And I love combining challenges, the more things I need to but together to work in a card I see the more excited I get. My Favorite Things always have two challenges going at one time, a sketch challenge and a color challenge. Today I combine the active challenges into one card. The tip in my video today is how I make a diecut longer by partial diecutting.

Hello Summer!

Hi Guys! I'm a total Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy fan and when I saw that Barbara (owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps) had made some Towel Day Images I knew that I needed to make something with them. Sadly I didn't have time to get them done to Towel Day that was this week but I thought that they could be used for other occasions, like a summer card, he does have a bath towel with him. And as it now happens, Simon Says Stamps flickr challenge is Summertime Fun, so thought I would kill two birds with one stone. The colour scheme on Douglas is a very neutral brown, white and blue one. That makes him easier to place on any cards you want, today I wanted to use the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid blues as I feel they are very summery. With that I choose to use the Flip Flop Season stamp set by Simon Says Stamp to make the card even more summery and fun! The sentiment and the flip flops are stamped on different kind of papers and in the video I show you how the copics blend differently on the two papers. Hope you'll enjoy the card and the video. Btw if you haven't seen it yet, you can now subscribe to a newsletter so every time I post a new card you will get an email in your inbox.

Tulips | No-Line Watercoloring with Distress Inks

Hi Guys!

Today is another release for Little Blue Button Stamps, and one of the releases is these gorgeous tulips. I have printed them as a watermark in a word document(I use open office but they work the same) to get the lines as faded as I could. I printed on some 180 gsm watercolour cardstock with my laser-printer, my choice of paper was so it would go through my printer. To see my process watch the video down below.
