Welcome to my little stop on the Colorado Craft Company bloghop!
I’m embarking on my usual winter sabbatical – taking off til the end of the year from big tutorials. But I do have a little “short” to show you, as well as step by step photos for one of my two cards. AND a video from earlier this year showing the technique too. Let’s get to it, shall we?
The full release is available now- and if you use my link, you qualify to win the full release of either Anita Jeram or Kris Lauren (I’m only showing you two sets here, be sure to view the rest of the hop or just TAP TO GO SHOPPING while there’s still stamps in stock!
YT Short: Stamping and gouache

Countdown to Christmas
If you found that short quick and helpful, be sure to subscribe to my YT! Tap the BELL beside the button and click ALL so it notifies you when I have a new upload. As my COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS I’m going to try to post a little short every day!

The steps on the penguin card
In a stamping platform like a MISTI, stamp the image, and paint your design in gouache. This is an opaque paint, so it’ll cover the lines. But don’t worry, you can stamp over it once it’s dry! (You can try this with acrylic but gouache dries flatter and faster.)
Then paint the figures in whatever stamp you’re using. You might go past the lines, so just stamp it again when done, easy peasy! To finish mine off, I drew in a squiggly line and painted on lights – and used the same colors for some lights in the sky too.
The pup card
I used the same process for this one but didn’t take photos….I painted it to look like my Vienna!
BONUS: full stamping & gouache tutorial
Here’s a long form video that shows the same technique but with a different CCC release.
