Happy Friday, everyone! Today I have an in-depth review of some of the new watercolor products from Prima. I got a glimpse of these at CHA a month ago and I was very curious about it. Thankfully, Prima sent me a box of goodies to try out and all three Watercolor Confections sets (The Classics, Tropicals, and Decadent Pies) and the Watercolor Coloring Book were included! Thanks, Prima!
NOTE: As usual, even though the products were sent to me for review, all opinions included here and in the vider are honest. It’s always my policy to share my real opinions will you all. :)
Let’s see all the cards you sent to me in January 2016! The theme was birthday cards! :)
NOTE: The feature image above includes cards sent by Sara in Idaho, Xenia in Florida, and Ben in South Carolina.
Today I’m playing with the new Hipster Animals stamp set from Hero Arts, and I’m turning it into a masculine card. Many of you ask for more masculine cards, and these animals were so quirky I couldn’t resist using them on a card. :)
Hello all! Today I am taking part in a blog hop celebrating the 30 Day Coloring Challenge from Kathy Racoosin. Kathy is a close friend and I’ve personally seen how addicted she is to coloring! Whenever were together, her bag of markers and stamped images in never far away. :)
Kathy has hosted 30 Day Coloring Challenges in the past–in fact, this is her fourth! Each time, there is a ton of participation on Instagram and it’s so fun to see what everyone is working on. Check out the #thedailymarker30day hashtag to see more!
The challenge encourages everyone to color something–anything!–each day for an entire month. You can color something small or color something big! And you can color with whatever medium you’d like
For my card today, I’m coloring the Happy Pandas stamp set from My Favorite Things…
With all of the watercoloring that I’ve been doing recently, I’ve been wondering how hot pressed watercolor paper holds up under water-heavy backgrounds as compared to cold pressed paper. I decided to put it to the test today and create two cards using the Blogging Buddies stamp set from Mama Elephant.
For comparison, I used Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper and Arches Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper.
Hello, all! Today I created a card using products from the February 2016 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. I’m so honored to be able to design products for the Simon Says Stamp card kits, and I especially like the stamps and dies I designed for this kit. :)
Unfortunately, the kit itself is sold out, but you can still buy a lot of the individual components separately, including the Hello Beautiful stamp set and Mini Hearts Outline dies.
Today I have a lettering video showing how I letter with the Pentel Fude Touch Sign Pen. This pen has a flexible tip that is wonderful for a brush lettering type of look. I bought the entire collection of different colors a while back and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed practicing with them.
