Distress Marker Watercolor Resist – Make a Card Monday #243

Hi all! Sorry for missing a video last Friday. It’s been a really crazy, busy couple of weeks. But here I am with a Make a Card Monday card and video! :)

I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire last week where she used Distress Markers to create a watercolor background and I thought it was so cool! I wanted to try it out using a greeting from the Happy Every Day stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I also die cut some stars from the Large Holiday Shapes dies to use on the card. I coated the stars with Stardust Stickles glitter glue as well.

Make a Card Monday #242 – Watercolor Emboss Resist

Hi everyone! Today I started out making only one card, but it morphed into two. :)

I used the Very Special stamp set from Simon Says Stamp for both cards, and added the Wide Stripes Background stamp to one of them. I embossed the stripes with clear matte embossing powder… which just might be my new favorite clear embossing powder. Such a fun texture! I say in the video that it feels like velvet, but a better description would be suede. :)

Anyhow, enjoy!

Make a Card Monday #241 – Watercolor Hugs

Happy Monday, all! I hope your Monday was wonderful. :)

Today I sat down to make a card and wanted to create a watercolor background to go behind a large diecut word. I used Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks to create the watercolor background, and diecut the Big Hugs die out of woodgrain cardstock.

I totally love how the watercolor turned out! Sometimes you just never know how it will look–if it will create pretty colors, or just a muddy mess. Thankfully, this one turned out really cool looking! :)

I finished off the card with iridescent sequins and enamel dots.
