Thanks for being there!

Hi everyone! I have a coloring card process video over on my YouTube Channel. You can watch it here:

I made this card using Unity Stamps Care and Hope Iris illustrated by friend Sandhya Ilyer. It’s such a beauty. I first stamped it onto Canson Mixed Media 138lb. watercolor paper with Versafine ink and Clear embossing powder from Hero Arts. I began coloring with my New Tombow Markers with tropical colors in mind. The colors I used are 195, 725, 817, 126, and 026. I used my #2 Silver Black Velvet Brush with a little bit of water. I did dry my panel in between layers using my Wagner Heat Tool. I also used my Prismacolor Colored pencils for the nooks and crannies in Pc034 Golden rod, and Pc 913 Spring Green. I then used Ellen Hutson’s Rectangle frame dies to cut out my panel using my Spellbinders Platinum die cutting Machine. I also cut it out with a orangly color to match my background and doubled them up. I added foam to my A2 card base which I like the dimension a little bit more than foam tape sometimes before adding my panel.

I had stamped and heat embossed a bunch of these sentiment strips from Taylored Expressions You are the Best and then used the Asymmetrical die to cut them out. I also added foam to the back before adding it onto my panel. Lastly, I added some sequins from Catherine Pooler to match. I hope you have enjoyed my card and details. Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! I have a card to share with you today. I was asked to make a Birthday card and this is what I came up with.

I started out by using this already made panel from Unity Stamps that was a Digital stamp. It is called Gingko greetings. This digital is not for sale as a digital anymore but it is a red rubber stamp so you still can get it. Yay. My friend Sandhya Iyer illustrated it. So I printed four panels out on a 8×11 sheet of Bristol cardstock. I knew I wanted to watercolor it, because I have colored one previously in a different color combo. I chose to use a blue color combo this time using my Karin Markers, a black velvet brush, and water. I let my panel dry and then I added gold paint droplets from my Kuretake paint set. I cut my panel with a rectangle die set from the Greetery.

I used Sugarpea designs Happy Thoughts for my sentiments. I stamped and heat embossed the “happy” on to my panel with Versamark and clear embossing powder using my stamping tool. I then heat embossed the rest of the sentiment onto black cardstock with white embossing powder. I cut it with my paper trimmer and added that sentiment with foam tape onto my panel. My panel was then added to a black papel sightly larger and then added to a blue A2 card base. I added some gold sequins to match and that finishes my card. I hope you like it. I hope the recipient likes it too! Thank you for stopping by!
