Another Embossed Background

I had so much fun with the tree background that I decided to try a different one.  I picked this triangle embossing folder from WeRMemory Keepers and did the same technique.  You can see the whole process from start to finish on my YouTube channel.

I used the Booyah stamp set from Lawn Fawn, my favourite Halloween stamp set this year =)

Embossed Backgrounds

Just wanted to pop in really quick to show you a card I made last night and to let you know that the tutorial is up on YouTube.  All you need is watercolour powders (I used Nuance by Magenta), watercolour paper, an embossing folder and something to colour in your trees.

You can easily do this with Brusho or Color Burst if you have them.

Hope you like it!!

More Fall Fun with The Greeting Farm

I really enjoyed making my fall card the other day so I thought I would share the process in a YouTube video.  I started out by filming two backgrounds using the Nuance Powders from Magenta (a canadian company!) with the beautiful fall colours.  And then I stamped out a couple of my Greeting Farm images to colour in.

For the first background I put blue in it by accident, but it still turned out so pretty.  I coloured my image with a little bit of blue to bring out the colour.

The second one was just perfect with the little touch of green.  both of the them were framed with the scalloped card front from Mama Elephant and adding a little banner with an image.

The funniest part was I didn't realize until I was colouring out the last image Evie from the Super Secret Stamp Club that she is holding a phone and not a coffee mug like I thought.  I had to have a second take when I noticed the little dot in the top right hand corner and realized that that was the camera from her phone - too funny!!

Check out my video for the background and colouring process.  I did show my peerless water colours and how I use them when colouring images like this.  And don't forget to subscribe when you are over there =)  I will be having a giveaway soon to celebrate my growing subscribers.

Happy Fall Y'all!

Today is the first day of fall so I'd like to celebrate with a fall card.  I was playing with my Nuance powders from Magenta and made a beautiful background that reminded me of fall leaves changing colours, so I wen through my stamps to find an image that would go with a fall theme.  I picked this super cute Tawny from CC Designs Pollycraft by Paula.  I just love their little images, they are so cute.

I stamped the image out in Black Licorice MFT Hybrid Ink and coloured it up using Peerless Water Colours.  I love the bright colours that you can achieve with these water colours and they are so fast and easy to use.

The saying is from a CC Designs AmyR set called Happy Harvest.  Those AmyR sentiments are the best for cards and more.

To finish off the card front I wrapped some black embroidery thread around and tied a bow, added some acrylic leaves and popped up the image on foam tape.  I will be sharing this card in more detail on my YouTube channel later this week.

Happy Fall to everyone!!

Bring on the Marching Band...

Anybody miss me??  Well I'm sure if you've been following me on YouTube and Instagram you haven't missed a thing.  But I thought I would come back to the world of blogging.

Lately I went a little crazy at Simon Says Stamp and who wouldn't during this wonderful holiday of Stamptember - yup Stamptember.  September is the month that Simon puts together a new release and also does collaborations with other stamp companies to produce exclusive stamp sets that you can only buy during the month of September or until they are sold it - which is pretty fast some times.  So normally I don't get caught up in the world of "I have to buy it before it's sold out", but when you get the emails and follow them on Instagram and see all the images and samples.  I just couldn't resist.

So I thought I would share with you a card that I made as soon as this cute little stamp set showed up in the mail.  I used Band Camp which is a Stamptember exclusive from WPlus9.  They are so adorable and I love the sayings so much.

The background was created with Nuance powders from Magenta.  I coloured the little band members with copic markers and fussy cut them out to glue down on top of he background.  To finish it off I embossed the saying in black embossing powder.

Really love these cute little guys and the images and saying are so versatile.

Check out my YouTube channel for a close up of these and stay tuned for more super cute cards =)
