Peekaboo Tag Baby Card

 

Peekaboo Tag Baby Card

I fell in love with the little elephant in this set – I don’t even make many baby cards but I just had to get this one and play with it! And adding a lyric from Annie Lennox and the Eurythmics?? Bonus for me. (Yes, I’m dating myself!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The construction on this was a little unwieldy at first, but did work out in the end. Love the peekaboo on the front!

Penny Black guest week: Sharing a Song & 3 other shading maps

Happy Monday! I have a treat for you this week…..I’m guest-designing with Christmas cards all week over on the Penny Black blog! There’s a video on my channel today, of course, but the posts and pics will be over on their blog. (There will only be a video today – the rest of the week will be stills but lots of shading maps!) I’ll be back here for my regular Wednesday and Friday videos.

Today’s video shows this Sharing a Song card………and here are peeks at the rest of the week!

Bird week: Altenew July 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

If you’ve arrived from Lydia Evans’ blog, you’re on the right track here on the Altenew bloghop! See details including amazing giveaways later in this post.

Altenew Bloghop: Watercolor Parrot Paradise

Welcome to my stop on the hop!  I decided to take a vacation in paradise on a card, since I don’t have a tropical vacation on my calendar….and took my watercolors with me! I figured out how to paint an easy background on a card like this – you’ll facepalm when you realize how simple it is to do this on cards! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The Parrot Paradise stamp set can be used in tons of other ways too – check out all the shapes of the leaves that can layer beautifully, too:

The ease of painting right over the image really makes painting a card front like this easy!

And the parrot can also be used with your own painting in the background…this video was privately shared with my patrons earlier this week:

And now….those bloghop details!

Happy birthday, G! And a guest feature to check out

I’m featured over HERE for World Watercolor Month – some not-before-posted paintings are there, so go over and leave a comment to say hey!

It’s hard to believe….my little man is a year old tomorrow! I picked out some pics from the year to make your puppy ovaries ache a little. *grin* If you’d like to give him a birthday present, scroll on down.

 

If you’d like to help the little man continue his journeys in parks – please make a $5 birthday gift in his honor to SODA, Park Pals, or Grandview! He needs his parks…all the pups do!

Bird week: MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE! (Seaside Seagulls Card)

Welcome to Accidental Bird Week! There’s no international holiday celebrating our feathered friends, no reason to celebrate birds except that…well….I noticed I had three bird cards scheduled. So we’re gonna call it a holiday week!

MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE! (Seaside Seagulls Card)

These MFT seagulls crack me UP. I can totally “hear” them gathering on the dock and yelling “MINE” over each other, everyone wanting that one chip. Can you hear them too??? Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

There’s a “MINE” word in one of the sentiments if you want to stamp it instead of writing it, but it was quick to just write the word. (And then no one has a heart attack watching me cut a sentiment stamp. LOL)

No Prob-llama – Dot Card Watercoloring

No Prob-llama – Dot Card Watercoloring

You can get an awful lot of painting done with just dots of color! I barely scratched the surface of the dots on this whole card, and there’s plenty left for future projects. But be careful, shipping is crazy for *just* a dot card…add it to another order when you have other stuff you need! Like these Darcie’s stamps, because, unicorns, llamas, and foxes, right?? Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I stamped the same image on Neenah cardstock too, and colored it with my Copics as well…

And I promised unicorns – both watercolor and copic!

Unicorn Surprise Party – Gerda Steiner Designs

Unicorn Surprise Party – Gerda Steiner Designs

I might be the only person EVER to make a unicorn card in black and white. Without a rainbow of color. Because, unicorns and rainbows, right? Well, this one….this one has a crazy story inside my head about a unicorn coming home after a long day at work as a unicorn….and, well. You just have to watch it. LOL. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And of course the inside of the card has the “SURPRISE!” inside….and I let a little tiny bit of color loose on the cupcake!
