Stamp and Color a Mason Jar

Inktense pencils on Neenah? Oh yeah! Just use a teensy bit of water. I was amazed it worked so well! I also show you how to stamp the stems under the glass so that you can make the glass look right. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I finished the card off with a simple stitched die around the edges, and the sentiment on a vellum panel taped to the back of it.

Fall Flowers Series 2018 #6: Masculine Floral Card

Fall Flowers Series 2018 #6: Masculine Floral Card

 

Fall Flowers Series 2018

I love creating a little series of videos for you sometimes….kind of like a mini public “class”! I had a bunch of flower stamps in my growing stash that I haven’t shown yet, so they’ll be collected together this week into a series. Enjoy!

Masculine Floral Card

I threw myself a challenge – make a fall floral that could be sent to a GUY!? You’ll have to decide if I achieved it or not…… Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Colors used…I misspoke, weathered wood is walnut stain. W’s ya know?

So tell me…is it masculine?? lol! My dad used to always say “Take it easy” instead of “Bye!”….so I used this sentiment from this sloth set.

Creating Sea Foam

Warning! Super easy technique ahead! You’ll be looking for any of your stamps to make sea foam with because it’s that easy. And if your markers are dry? It works even better! (Yes I need to order some replacements!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Feeling Foxy – Zigs + Daniel Smith Watercolor

If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know I almost always buy the cute fox stamps – I just love coloring them! This one’s no exception. I did combine my Daniel Smith watercolors with Zigs here; I wanted the intensity of the Zigs for the fox, but I like few of the greens from the Clean Color marker collection. So as I always say…use what works! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

When I combine different mediums I do get lots of comments saying, “Boy I just never thought of doing that!” So hopefully now you’ll remember the enxt time you don’t have a color available in one medium that you do in another!

AI Interactive Series #2: Circlet Tryfold Cards – four ways!

AI Interactive Series #2: Circlet Tryfold Cards – four ways!

This is part of a series this week with NEW interactive stamps and dies from Art Impressions…BIG thanks to them for providing them so I can show you – and you can decide which if any need to come home with you! (My apologies to your wallet!)

 

AI Interactive Series #2: Circlet Tryfold Cards – four ways!

I saw some photos from CHA showing alternate layouts for these cute circlet tryfold cards. Lots were way crazy fancy! The circle ones had patterned paper layers and more – I do hope someone does videos showing how they made them. And the “booklet” style one too – the pic I saw had paper layers and was on a normal sized card. But instead, I did the “CAS” version of what I saw, all on Canson XL paper – which works better with markers like the Zig Twin Tip ones used here. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

First, the “basic” format of a tryfold – shown in yesterday’s project.

Next is a “booklet” style card, with an extra panel inside.

Here’s a birthday card that attaches at the top to open, using a brad. Note the round sentiment is missing on this one, but it’s on the stamp set – I masked and wiped it off.

And last but not least, a chain-style round card that spins on two brads.

Cactus Cards – Stuck on You

I bought this cactus set and tried a bunch of different things, but couldn’t find anything “teachable” right away. I like to actually have something new to show you, not just a stamp set. Then….I saw my woodgrain paper on the shelf staring at me. And decided to see if it can handle a bit of water. (I tried it with Copics HERE.) And this made me happy!
