Cutest Little Critters - and Quick Tip Video!

Good morning! Dropping by again this morning to share a few more cards I made with the new release stamps from Unity Stamp Company - I have a weakness for cute critters - and these ones have stolen my heart!!! I used them to put together a set of cards, using one paper pad, one stamp set, one primary layout - and creating four cards quickly and easily! This is a great way to use up scraps of pattern paper! :)

Here is that video, sharing a bit of my process:

And here are close up photos of each card:

I was originally planning on coloring the images, but decided in the end to keep them simple and black and white. I think it fits the style of these quite well. Something good to know - sometimes it's okay to just leave a cute image to shine on it's own!

Here is some of the sale info - a darling free set, these new Woodland critters, and some darling little Outer Space stamps!!! Eeeeek! The cuteness kills me!

Here are links to the supplies I used on my card. Thanks so much for stopping by this morning - have a wonderful day!!!

Color Splash Watercolor - Quick Tip Video

Good evening! I'm posting a little later than I planned tonight - but wanted to share a card and Quick Tip video that I made using one of the brand new Angie Girl stamps from Unity Stamp Company - there are 4 new ones, and a few other darling stamp sets as well! I wanted to tackle some options for the person who maybe doesn't love coloring - I know sometimes I can be intimidated by these big images, and I love to color! So I thought I would share another way to use them a little more creatively! :)

Here is the video sharing how I got this effect:

This makes me think of a tie-dye t-shirt! Anyone else?!?!? I added some Crate Paper striped pattern paper on the side, and a little border cut with a Pretty Pink Posh die in between the two layers.

Here is some of the sale info - a darling free set, new Angie Girls - AND, all the Angie Girls are on sale as well! Perfect chance to stock up!

Here are links to the supplies I used on my card. Thanks so much for stopping by today - hope you have a wonderful evening!!!

Little Tangles - Watercolor

Good morning! Time for a new challenge at Little Tangles this morning! The challenge one of my favorite things ever - watercolor!

I actually love it so much, I made TWO cards, because I couldn't choose what was my favorite! :)

For the first one, I heat embossed my images in white on watercolor paper, and added a rainbow wash of watercolors. Finished by mounting on a kraft card base.

The second one I stamped in black Versafine ink, colored in slightly bolder shades, then turned into a shaker card!

I filled it with with some cute little iridescent heart confetti!

Below are links to most of what I used on these cards. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you will join in with the challenge and play along!
