Watercoloring with Cheap Watercolor paints




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m doing some watercoloring, and I’m using this inexpensive watercolor set to color in my images and create my background.  The stamp set I’m using is Wplus9, Going Places.  Super cute stamp set.  you can either tuck in the critter in the hot air ballon or you can have them hanging, like I did on this card.  I wanted to share that you don’t necessarily need to spend a lot of money, in order to watercolor.  You can start out with a set like this and see if you like it.  Then you can decide if you want to spend a little more.  I created a background doing some embossing, which will resist the watercolors.  I’ve embossed some clouds with white embossing powder and added just 2 shades of Blues, just dabbing the watercolor to the paper.  I didn’t want to make the colors even, since were creating the sky portion.  I stamped the hot air balloon and the rabbit on a separate sheet of watercolor card stock and watercolored them as well.  I fussy cut them out so that I can pop them up on to our background.  I made a pretty ample card today.  I hope you like this card and I thank you so much for stopping by.  I still have the GIVEAWAY going on until tomorrow, Thursday at Midnight so go head over to my Youtube.  Subscribe and comment of your chance to win some prizes.   I appreciate you guys so much, thanks again!

CAS Card Sets using Wplus9-Tupelo Designs LLC




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making some cards for Tupelo Designs LLC.  With the Holiday’s approaching, I’ll be making many sets of Cards so that I can give them as gifts.  You’ll be seeing many more of these, that’s for sure.  I decide to make a set of 4 and I made my own background paper using the Penny Black’s Blips background stamp with Rangers Dye inks.  Rangers Dye inks are very bright and I love the colors they offer.  I thought it would be fun to make different color backgrounds with the same stamped image.  When you are mass producing cards, it’s easier to do it in assembly style.  I first prepared all the card stocks that I’ll be using: 4 card bases (110lb Neenah), 4 black mats, 4 background paper, etc….

I’m using the Wplus9 stamp set, Wishing you and I chose out the 2 bunnies that has the back toward us. I stamped out 4 of them in a 2 1/2″ circle and colored them using my Copic Markers.  This is going to be very clean and simple.  It’s best to keep it that way, so that you can create these cards pretty fast.  I then assembled everything together.  I did not put a sentiment to these cards, because I like to add them later, depending on who I’m giving these too.  You can also stamp multiple sentiments on a separate piece and give them together.  Then they can choose which sentiment they want to use, and just attach it to the card.  I hope you like this clean and simple card set and I thank you guys so much for stopping by.  Be sure to subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  All the supplies I used will be located below, if you’re interested in any of the supplies I used today.  Thanks again and I’ll catch you guys next time.

Simple Watercoloring Using Peerless Watercolors Tupelo Designs LLC




Aloha Guys!

Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’ll be doing some simple watercoloring using the Peerless Watercolors.  The stamp set that I used are these Stampendous Jumbo Hummingbird stamp set.  I personally love their Jumbo stamp line because they are so fun to color.  They are very large so you can experiment with all types of mediums, and have fun.  Today I decided to emboss these birds using the Wow white pearl powder, which will give us this soft watercolor look.  I used the Peerless watercolors today, and if you haven’t tried these watercolors, I recommend them very much.  They come in paper form and it has a highly pigmented colors on them so they are very easy to work with.  This is one of my favorite watercolor set.  The colors are so rich and vibrant, they are absolutely gorgeous.  If you have a hard time staying in the lines when you watercolor, try embossing the stamp first.  This will make the embossed lines raise up, which will help you stay in the lines.  I just love how these birds turned out, and I love the colorful look, these birds have.  I hope you enjoyed this card and please check out the video for step by step instructions.  I thank you guys so much for stopping by and all the supplies I used will be located below if you want to check that out.  Please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks again.

Today I’m making a card for Tupelo Designs LLC and I’m using the Wplus9 Unforgetable stamp set.  These elephants are super cute and I was very excited to use it.  I am not doing any coloring  today but instead, I stamped one of the elephant out on a design paper and fussy cut it out.  I also used some glitter design paper from my stash and cut 2 cloud border using the Mama elephant border trio die.  If I had the Lawn Fawn’s new Fluffy cloud border die, that would of been perfect for it as well.  I wanted the elephant to look like he was floating in the cloud because of the sentiment I chose out from the stamp set.  I hope you can watch the video up above for a step by step on how I made this card.  I hope you guys like this and please subscribe and follow for more inspirations and ideas.  Thanks so much
