Watercolour Card using Distress Inks and Clearly Besotted Stamps

Hi Crafters!

Back to teaching this week, back to university this week - it is going to be a busy one! I am so excited to meet the new students arriving at our school and begin a new year. It is always a very exciting time in the life of a teacher!

Today I am featuring one of my favourite new stamping companies that I discovered not too long ago taking an online card class - Clearly Besotted Stamps. This Elegant Butterflies Stamp Set made my head spin with all the possibilities. Not only that, Stephanie has a whole section just for butterfly stamps (which are my favourite!). She is such a sweetie, I sent her an email to tell her how much I love her stamps and she took the time to write me back and thank me, I love dealing with small companies who appreciate your comments! Clearly Besotted Stamps are also available at Simon Says Stamp.

This is one of my first real attempts at a watercolour card. This was inspired by Kristina Werner's video and I did a similar technique, but instead I used butterflies :) I love the way it turned out. Please take the time to check out my Youtube video below on how to do this card. (I finally figured out a good angle for my camera but unfortunately I forgot to tie my hair back so I apologize in advance!) I really need to figure out how to get my camera over my workspace again!

Thanks for stopping by!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for STAMPtember Video Tutorial

Hi Crafters,
Today I created this sweet card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - the challenge being to stamp something since they are celebrating STAMPtember over at Simon Says Stamp. I used a variety of products which are listed below and better yet - I created a video tutorial for you to watch! I am still experimenting with my camera since I don't have a shelf directly above my workspace anymore since I moved so bear with me over the next few videos until I get it right :)

This card heavily features the masking technique and you can view the "how to" in the tutorial below:

Distressed Vintage Christmas Card

Hi Crafters!
Today I have a special card to share with you and I am entering it into the Christmas Card Challenge.  I always find Christmas sneaks up on  me every year so I am trying to start now to avoid the rush! This week over at Christmas Card Challenges (#40) the theme is everything goes. I really had fun creating this card. I decided to just go for it and experiment with the different mediums I have in my stash. Here it is:

As many of you know, I am on the Jessicalynnoriginal Design Team for a while. This poinsettia stamp that I used is from the Celebrate the Season with Santa stamp set. This is a really cute set for Christmas cards and adding a special something to your Christmas baking gifts :) If you have any questions on how I created this card, please comment below...or you know if you like it you could also leave some love ;)

Here is a closer look at the poinsettia - I just love the shading in the flower (I used Copic and Shinhan alcohol markers) and topped it with come Distress Glitter and combined with some gold sequins and pearl pins (retired) and metal accents.
