Happy Birthday – Balloons

By Cards

Hi all,

For today’s card I wanted to play with some different techniques and I think the results are quite charming. The balloons were stamped on watercolor paper and colored in with watercolor pencils. I love working with pencils over a paint palette because it makes me feel like I have much better control on my canvas. I used a water brush to do my actual blending. The lacy designs on top and bottom were created using Japanese style washi tape.

Happy Birthday

Paper: DCWV & Strathmore watercolor paper

Online Card Class – Day 2

By Cards



Hi all,

Here we are on day 2 and challenge number 2 for Clean & Simple cards. Todays “homework” is to create a 1 layer card. Believe it or not, this was a huge challenge for me, as I always tend to gravitate toward using physical layers to create a card. For today’s card I wanted to not only make a card, but use an added technique that was shown by the amazing Jennifer McGuire using rainbow colors and watercolor inks. To get the affect I wanted I used InkTense pencils.

Here’s my take on the assignment.

Online Card Class – Bonus Day 3

By Cards


Hi all,

Today’s bonus was pretty awesome! I loved taking a peek into other blogs to see what others are working on. For today’s card I decided to revisit the concept of “blank space” and create a card that had a large visual impact without too many elements.

Here it is! Enjoy!

His&Hers Day 1 (Masculine Card)

By Cards


For today’s Masculine card I wanted to create a cards using “Thinking of you” as a sentiment and products that would stretch to both of projects. For both cards I used Embossing folders, washi tape, my circle cutter and papers from My Minds Eye.

Stamps: Studio G : Thinking of You/ Miss You So
