Hero Arts Safari and Watercoloring with Distress Inks

Hello crafty friends!  Buckle in for a super fun card where we get to be artists of sorts.  We are going to be playing with this incredible sun die, and these two amazing sets from Hero Arts:





This card came together so easily.  I used a few different pieces of watercolor paper and started first by taking Distress Oxide colors in Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade.  I smooshed them on my craft mat, spritzed with water and then dipped my watercolor paper in them.  I thought that they may have blended too much (I know...how dare I say that...) so I added a bit of Fired Brick to them.  That was just the trick, since I was using this panel for the Hero Arts Sun Die.  Once that was done, I started working on the other watercolor paper.  Pulling out some good old Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, and Candied Apple, I did some light watercoloring. It was absolutely therapeutic; I love watercoloring simple things like this background.  

I then stamped out the grass line, followed by a…

A CAS card with Brich Press Design stamps & dies by Noga Shefer

Hi Crafty Friends! I’ts Noga and today I'm here to share a Clean And Simple card with the amazing  Birch Press Design products.

The heart was cut from 3 different  cardstocks using Caprice Heart Layer Dies Set - Birch Press Design.



The base of the cards was cut from white cardstock using the frame die from Frames & Flags Die Set - Newton's Nook Designs .




Sewn with Love by Altenew

Hello everyone!!  Today we are making some elegant Mother's Day cards with Altenew's Sewn with Love.  This set is just magical and comes together easily and beautifully!  When setting yourself up to use this stamp set, all you have to do is get your colors prepared and ready.  If you are staying monochromatic, you will need 2 sets of colors; one for the flower bud and one for the stem.  A stamping tool really does help for this type of set because you can fiddle with it to get it lined up perfectly before committing.  One thing I noticed was that you really have to get directly over the image as you are laying it down so that the pieces are lined up exactly.
I decided to do multiple cards because I had all of the supplies out and it would save time in the end.  Once I stamped out all of my beautiful flowers, I cut them each down a little differently so that I could have some fun with variation.  One of the buds I cut out with a heart die and gave that dimension by putting so…

You'd fall in love with these layering dies.

We've added some fantastic dies to our store by Birch Press Design. Each set contains three dies A, B, and C. These dies could be used as a set of layering dies or each die could be used individually.  Prem layer set craft die - Birch Press Deign 56076ViewGrace layer set craft die - Birch Press Deign 56080ViewButterfly garden plate layer set craft die - Birch Press Deign 56079

3-layered Stamping with Sunny Studios Bold Balloons

Hello everyone! Today's cards feature Bold Balloons from Sunny Studios.  I have loved these stamps from the first time I saw them.  They look so realistic and bring such a great dimension to your cards. Sometimes layered stamping can seem intimidating but I think we can all agree once we see the end result, it's magical.  And these stamps from Sunny Studio are some of the easiest muli-layering stamps I've ever used.  They are amazing! I started by using three colors of Distress Oxide Inks  which, because of their pigmented property, stamped really well.
 After stamping the star balloons, I ink blended some Tattered Rose around the edge of the card but happened to drag some of the red from the stars and it smudged a bit.  I then used a Tombow Mono Sand Eraser to pick up some of the ink; works like a charm.  I finished off the first card by filling the balloons with Glossy Accents and Nuvo Glitter Drops.  The second card was similar with a little more focus on the backgrou…
