Projects

I made 7 cards+2videos using new amazing stamp sets for today’s Blog Hop.

Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set

I used this beautiful stamp set for the first two cards.

The first card. I started by heat embossing the image onto watercolor paper. I used Zig art&graphic markers and altenew inks to watercolor it.

I stamped the sentiment and glued the panel to the card base. To finish off my card, I added gold sequins and some accents with Wink of Stella brush pen.

The second card I started by stamping the image onto a piece of white cardstock. I colored the image using my dotted coloring technique. You can watch the video HERE.

I then mounted the panel onto a black card stock and glued it onto a card base. I added a sentiment, white embossed on black, several sequins and made some accents with Wink of Stella brush pen.

I filmed 2 videos showing how to create the cards from start to finish. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy it. This is the video 1.

Watch it below or in HD at my YouTube channel.

Bountiful Branch Stamp Set

My next card I made using the masking technique. This is one of my favourite techniques.

I masked off the top and the bottom of the card panel. I then stamped the image, made masks for the image and blended ink.

Adhered the card panel to the card base using double-side tape and heat embossed the sentiment on the black cardstock. To finish off the card I added some sequins.

Holiday Bow Stamp Set

I made 2 cards using this gorgeous Holiday Bow Stamp Set. For the first card I came up with the idea to create the Christmas wreath.

I drew a circle using a pencil and made some masks. I then stamped the images in a circle.

I added sentiments, white embossed on black cardstock. To finish off my card, I added gold sequins and some accents with Wink of Stella brush pen.

For the next card I started by stamping a sentiment, berry and pine branches and heat embossed everything in white embossing powder. For the card panel I used dark blue cardstock.

After adhering my panel onto a card base I added red berries using Nuvo Drop.

To finish off my card I added several snowflakes.

Two new stamp sets Holiday Bow and Mini Christmas were used for this card.

Starry Night Stamp Set

I love this set so much!

I embossed the image from the set using Zing embossing powder Glitter finish. Mounted the panel onto a card base and popped up a sentiment with foam tape.

From Our Home Stamp Set

For my last card I used From our Home stamp set and Starry Night Stamp Set.

I started by stamping houses. I white embossed the roofs of the houses and trees, then embossed the sky with glitter embossing powder.

A background was masked and blended with Altenew inks. I mounted the panel onto a card base and added a sentiment.

This is the Video 2. Watch it below or in HD at my YouTube channel.

I am overwhelmed by all the inspiration in this bloghop. You and the rest of the DT have gone above and beyond with this release! I’m amazed by your watercoloring. I especially love all the hard edges in the first one; they create such an interesting image to look at. I just want to stare at it all day. I also love how the star tree doesn’t need much of anything to make a perfect Christmas card. Thanks for sharing all these lovely ideas with us!

I loved all of your cards. Your use of the Zig Art Markers is incredible. I love the way you do the dot technique. It adds such an interesting take on watercoloring. The techniques used on the other cards were amazing and inspiring. Thanks for the time and effort to put in to show us your talent.
