Our Own Beauty - Brea Reese Brand Ambassador Post!

Happy Tuesday!!  I've got a new Brea Reese Brand Ambassador post for you today, celebrating National Hat Day!  I myself am not a big hat-wearing person, but I really wish I was!  I always love trying them on, but they just never look like "me", so I wanted to make a card celebrating someone gutsy enough to wear one!


So ya'all know I looooove my Glitter InksViolet, Ultramarine Blue and Lake Blue blended horizontally created the wintery background.  Now my stamped die cuts, I used lots of different products to color them.  Oh but first, I custom-colored my ribbon!  I used Violet Glitter Ink to tint my ribbon.  I used water to lighten the ink in spots, to create an ombre look.  This is a technique I haven't done in awhile but I think I should do it more often!


The sentiment tag, I colored first with the Metallic Watercolor Pan set, then I dropped on some Ultramarine Blue Glitter Ink while it was still wet so it would blend and wick, creating a bit of an icicle effect.  The girl was colored with the same watercolor set, except for the background which I painted first with Liquid Glitter and then blended Lake Blue Glitter Ink over it.  Metallic Brights Pens were used to add detail to her gloves and the snow.

I know it's hard to see in photos but this card just sparkles and shimmers, it's so pretty.

Look for the RAINBOW in Every Storm....

It's been a rough day here.  I don't even think I've fully grasped yet what's been going on.  But all of a sudden I heard these song lyrics in my head and boom, I was putting aside what I NEEDED to do and making this, because that was something I HAD to do.  Completing this card made me feel a little lighter, even if it was only for a minute.

Winter Wonderland - Momenta Brand Ambassador Post!!

Happy Hump Day!!  And happy 2019!!  It's my first Momenta Brand Ambassador post of the year, and I've got a winter card for you!  I like to send greetings all through the season.  I used one of my favorite paper pads, Metallic Watercolor for my main imagery, letting the sentiment sticker just accent the background.  I really love these Christmas vellum stickers, there's a nice assortment of sentiments on one sheet!



Be sure to check out all the fun Momenta products!  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

DIEcember - Day Twenty-One - Sometimes The Card Is The Present....

....okay so this isn't really one of those times, but it also kind of is.  Usually when I say the card is the present, it's filled with popping-up gift cards.  This time the card LOOKS like the present!!!  I made a TON of these and donated them to Cards for Soldiers.  I just love how they came out.





I liked it with all the patterns too, it's just a fun card!
