Hello

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Videos

Hello everyone.. it’s Holly here today with another watercolor card and process video. I’m using the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely  set and some Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

I started by stamping the flower image onto a piece of watercolor paper and then I heat embossed it using some White embossing powder. Then I taped the image panel to a board using some painter’s tape. I added some clear water around the image and then I dropped in some Light Blue using a wet paintbrush. This is the wet on wet technique. Then I heat set the area with my heat tool. I repeated the same process with the rest of the image. Adding in color within each embossed area and drying in between layers.

Once the image was dry I trimmed the panel to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and added it to a top folding Black card base. I stamped Hello from the same set and heat embossed it onto a piece of Black card stock using White embossing powder and trimmed it out with my large scissors. I adhered it to the image with some foam tape. This is a great image to practice watercolor with, it has lots of great large images and it can be embossed.

You can see more details on how I created this in the video below…

HUGS

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Uncategorized, Videos

Happy Tuesday everyone… It’s Holly here today and I have a new video and a Super Cute card featuring Your Next Stamp & My Favorite Things!

I started out with a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and I die cut a panel using the Blueprints 27 die-namics from MFT. Then I die cut the Big Hugs from MFT from the center of the panel. I added a piece of pattern paper from Doodlebug’s new Spring Things 6×6 pad behind the HUGS opening. Then I added an additional piece of pattern paper from the same pack to a White Card base and adhered the sentiment panel.

I stamped some birds from the Your Next Stamp Word Critters- Gardening Birds set using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink and colored them in with the following Copics. BG0000, BG10, BG11, Y17, No, N1, N3, YG01, YG03 & YG25 Then I used the coordinating die cuts to cut them out and I adhered them using foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of the pattern paper and used the banner from the Blueprint 27 set to die cut it out. I adhered it just under the HUGS with some additional foam tape. For some shimmer I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the birds and some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hello everyone.. I hope you all had a great Holiday Weekend! It’s Holly here today with a new video and a fun shaker card. Im using the new set from Neat & Tangled called Cottontail Cuties and the coordinating dies.

I created the tags using the Blueprints Tag Builder #6 set from My Favorite Things. The background in the tag is some of the new Doodlebug Spring Things pattern paper. The center of the shaker is created with an MFT Shaker Pouch. I added some sequins and seed Beads from my stash. The image is stamped onto some Tim Holtz watercolor paper using the Mini Misti in VersaFine Black ink and heat embossed in Clear embossing powder.

 I colored the image in with Distress markers and a Damp paintbrush. I used the following colors for the image: Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Pumice Stone, Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose & Rusty Hinge. Once the image was dry I die cut it with the coordinating dies and then I adhered it to the front of the shaker with some liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment onto some Neenah Solar White using VersaFine Black ink. I attached the tag with some Twine. This is perfect for a Basket Tag or to add to a gift.

Check out the video below for more details on how I created this card.

Have a great week!

Hello everyone.. I hope you are all having a great week so far! Have you played along with Challenge #112 yet? This week it’s all about the Moon and Stars. You can find all the details on the Challenge in this post here. The challenge is open until Friday January 27th at 11pm est.

I created a cute card today using the Challenge theme and the Lucky set from My Favorite Things.

I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White card stock and I die cut a panel with the MFT Blueprints #15 die-namics set. Then I die cut the center Star area using the MFT Starry Circle Die-namic. I die cut the stars a second time from a piece of the MFT Watercolor Wash 6×6 paper Pack. I added a piece of scarp paper to the back of the panel and then I adhered the blue star panel with some glue. I stamped the sentiment in some Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink using the Mini Misti and set it aside.

I stamped the images from the Lucky set onto a piece of Neenah Solar White using the same Jet Black ink and colored them in with Copics in the following colors:

Moon: Y0000, Y000 & Y00 Stars: B0000, B000 & B00 Clouds: C00, C1 & C3 Cheeks: R20 I also used some 0 on each image.

Once the images were cut out I die cut them with the coordinating dies and adhered them to card front with some glue and foam tape. I added some additional foam tape to the back of the panel and adhered that to a top folding A2 size card base. For a touch of Shimmer I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the Stars and the Moon image. I also added some of the Mixed Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.
