Metallic Watercolors | Pretty Pink Posh

Using metallic watercolors on black watercolor paper is super fun! Add a stencil into the mix and you have endless ideas — but it is finicky. The consistency of the watercolor has to be right, not too wet but not too dry. Once you get the hang of it, it works really well and gives you a cool effect on black!

Partial Background Stamp | Miss Ink Stamps

Happy Wednesday — I’m sharing this magical birthday card today and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I love a background stamp that can help set a scene for you and this is one of them. Although it will stamp out a 6×6 background, I really wanted to showcase the Stars stencil as well, so my solution was to cut a partial part of it! What do you think?

Die Cut Leaves | Honey Bee Stamps

Scene Card | Hero Arts

One of my favorite kind of cards to make! Scene Cards! They are so fun because you can interpret scene cards in so many different ways and use stamps that are standalone in a new way. It’s great for really stretching your stamps and giving your own view on them! That’s what I did here:

Ink Blending | Hero Arts

I have a mental “crafty company bucket list”, which is a list of crafty companies that I love that I’d be so happy to guest design for – and Hero Arts is definitely one of them! And proximity wise, they are the closest to me (sometimes they have warehouse sales and it’s so fun to actually go into their store!)

Anyway, I did a guest design blog post for them featuring two cards so please go check it out here.

But surprise! I also have a full length YouTube video featuring one of them!
