Happy Tuesday!! I've got a new Brea Reese Brand Ambassador post for you today, with an inspirational card. The first word that came to mind was "DREAM" so that's what I went with! I've been so excited to play with my Tropical Love Resist Paper Pad. I blended colors from both the Jewel Watercolor Set and the Classics set to create this background. I just love how vibrant the colors are!!
If you haven't used a resist pad before, I'll explain how awesome they are. These pads are made of watercolor paper with a pre-embossed design on them. When color is added (I chose to use the Classics and Jewel watercolor sets but any water-based medium will work!), the embossed design resists the color. I did take a wet paper towel and wipe the excess color off the embossed design after my ink dried, and it REALLY made the images pop!!
The letters I cut using Handwritten Uppercase Alphabet dies from Momenta, out of plain black cardstock. The camera doesn't really show it but I painted it with three coats of Liquid Glitter. It's super shimmery in person!!
Happy Thursday!! I've got a new Momenta Brand Ambassador post for you today, with some happy HELLO cards! Even though we're about to get buried in a winter storm, I'm already thinking about spring! The Peony Paper pad is perfect for spring projects. I used it as my base for these cards, and added black cardstock and the Hello Cutting Template to finish them.
You'll notice one of the cards doesn't have the wreath around the Hello. I shared that card too to show that even mistakes can make pretty cards. When I was die-cutting my sentiments, I forgot to tape one of them down and the wreath was only half cut. I cut the rest of the wreath off with scissors and I actually really like how it looks! Plus it makes that die a two-fer, maybe even a three-fer. I could probably use the wreath without the "hello" attached, too.

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 Inks. Violet, 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 BlueGlitter 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.
Hi everyone! It's the first Sunday of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at Angie's Digi Stamps!! Our theme is always Anything Goes and this month we don't have a twist so we could go nuts with our creations! I made a fun shaker card!
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.
Happy Friday! It's our first challenge of the year at Crafting with Friends and as always, our theme is Anything Goes! We don't have a sponsor this challenge so we got to make whatever we wanted. I always get sentimental after the holidays so I made a Thank You shaker card!!!
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!
