Soft Blending with Circle Mask (Card for Mom)

Hello, all! Have you seen the new release from Lawn Fawn yet? Adorable! I couldn’t help myself and just had to create a card using one of the new stamp sets called Mom + Me. The images are so cute and perfect for Mother’s Day cards for for moms at anytime. :)

Simple Distress Watercoloring & Soft Ink Blending (feat. Paper Smooches)

Happy Monday, all!

Paper Smooches is celebrating their 5-year anniversary this month! Yay! I’m so excited for my friend and Paper Smooches founder Kim. She’s such an amazing person and I couldn’t be happier for her. :)

As part of the celebration, I’m taking part in a blog hop. Each person on the hop is using a different product from the February release. Today I’m using the new Fun & Flirty stamp set–which happens to be a free when you buy $60 worth of product at the Paper Smooches store! More details HERE. You can also purchase the stamp set. There are some great greetings in the set.

NOTE: The Fun & Flirty stamp set is now sold out! So, the free stamp set with a $60 purchase is now the Fascinators stamp set. :)

This is a great way to eliminate trapped pencil lines under watercolor. THIS is the light pad I use.

New Watercolor Pan Sets from Prima & Coloring Book Review

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. :)
