Black and White with a Pop of Color Watercoloring

Popping in this afternoon to share another couple cards and a Quick Tip video that I made recently for Unity Stamp Company and hadn't had a chance to share yet! One is a Mother's Day card, the other a birthday card - something fun I did with watercolors:

Video of my watercoloring this card - and putting it together:

I love the neutral watercolors - and then the pop of yellow on the flowers.

Here is the other card - same technique, different sentiment.

Detail shot:

Thanks for dropping by! Below you can find links to the supplies I used on this card! Have a wonderful evening!

Age is merely the number...

Good morning! I'm back and sharing another birthday card with these adorable Cuddly Critters from the new Simon Says Stamp My Favorite release last week - combining it with a sentiment from the previously released Big Birthday Wishes to make another birthday card:

I pretty much want to pick up each of these critters and cuddle them - and this koala is no exception! Added some torn vellum, and again some more plaid Lawn Fawn paper.

Also linking this card up with this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes:

Here are links to my supplies for this card! Thanks so much for stopping by today - have a wonderful day!

Distress Watercolor Teepee - Unity Hip Hop

Good evening! It's time for the monthly Design Team hop with Unity Stamp Company! There are a bunch of fun releases, lots of inspiration along the hop, and prizes to be won as well! So get settled in and ready to hop! I'm sharing a card and Quick Tip video using one of my absolute FAVORITE'S from the new release - drawn up by the talented Angie Bloom - and it was one I requested! LOVE LOVE LOVE it so much!

Here is that Quick Tip video - showing how I got it all vintage and distressed - and yet still sparkly and fun:

Love the sparkle from that tiny confetti - it's from Pretty Pink Posh and one of my favorite embellishments lately! Also tore an edge of the woodgrain paper and added some jute twine.

Make sure and hop along to win one of the prizes for leaving comments!

And don't forget to check out the weekend sales!

And here are links to the supplies I used on these cards - and below that the rest of the stops along the hop - make sure and visit them all! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful evening!
