Hello Beautiful with Jessica Frost-Ballas

Good morning!  Jess here with a bright and cheery jungle card featuring the Tropical Foliage dies and Jungle Littles stamps! To start I blended evergreen bough, peacock feathers, and pine needles distress ink onto a piece of ranger watercolor paper in a diagonal pattern.  Then I spritzed it with water and blotted off the excess.  I set that aside to dry while I worked on the leaves.  Next I die-cut a bunch of leaves with the Tropical Foliage dies from canson montval watercolor paper.  I added a little color with zig clean color real brush markers and then used...

Hello, Gemma here today to share a card using some lovely products from the May release. Just Sayin’ is a really fun and versatile set.

This set is so super cute and I loved playing with some watercolours for all my colouring today, since lately I’ve been very moved towards Copics. To begin my card today, I started off with stamping my images onto some watercolour cardstock with black ink and clear heat embossed over them, so when I watercolour; the colour is a little more contained and easier to handle. I used my Kuretake Gansai Watercolour Palette for today, since I haven’t used it...

100% Chance of Happiness with Audrey Tokach

Hello there!  Audrey here with a card to share with you using the recently released Puddle Play stamp set and coordinating Puddle Play dies!  I live in Florida, and this time of year, the weather is all over the place.  Once minute the sun is shining and the next, it’s pouring!  My umbrella is getting a work-out these days!! 🙂 I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit with this card, and pulled out my Prismacolor Pencils and some medium grey cardstock.  Colored pencil is not a medium that I work with often, but I am trying to...
