Hello Lovely Watercolor card featuring Concord and 9th

Hi Crafty Friends!
Stopping in to share a watercolor card with you!
It was a super simple one to create. My little love (5 month old daughter) doesn't give me a lot of time to craft these days she likes to be busy so CAS cards seems to be my go to lately!

I started with an A2 size piece of watercolor paper and literally just slapped on some streaks of Zig real brush markers in some purples and blues and used a water brush to sort of smear it all together, using a paper towel to pick of blotches as I went.
Once dried I stamped the lovely sentiment directly on it from the Hello Lovely stamp set from Concord and 9th.
I stamped the hello sentiment from the same set with versa-mark onto black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut onto a banner shape before adhering on with dimensional tape.
To finish off my card as usual I scattered some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh:)

Pretty Pink Posh July Release Blog Hop

So happy to be part of the July release blog hop for Pretty Pink Posh!
There's so many amazing new products!

You should have arrived from the lovely Carly Tee Minner's blog.
I created two creations to share with you today.
My first card features the very cute Bear Hugs stamp set , coordinating dies and the Stitched Diamond dies.
I used Fog card stock as my card base and cut the diamond out of the center. I used the same die to then cut a diamond out of white card stock to in lay it in my space I had cut. I stamped my bears and images on separate white card stock and colored in using Copic markers,I cut them out using the coordinating dies and adhered them in place onto the white diamond on my card.

For my second card I used the super adorable Sea Friends Stamp set and Coordinating dies. I started with watercolor paper and used my Zig real brush markers to draw a wave like line and water colored with blues and purples below it to create my water.
I stamped my images on a separate piece of watercolor paper, colored in with the Zig real brush markers and cut out with the coordinating dies. Once the images were adhered on my card where I wanted I stamped my sentiment to finish off my card.

That's it for my creations! Your next stop on the hop is Eloise Blue!

Sending You Sunshine featuring Pretty Pink Posh July Release

Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend!
I have a fun summery card to share with you today featuring the brand new Summer Friends stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh released today!!

I'm simply in love with this set! I can't wait to use it on some fun summery scrapbook layouts too!

I kept my card fairly simple today, focusing mainly on the cute characters.
I started  by stamping my characters on watercolor card stock along with the sun from the new Fly a Kite stamp set, and water colored with Zig clean color markers and cut them all out using the coordinating dies.
I used an A2 sized white card panel and die cut the Scallop Circle die on it. On a white card base I blended some blue Distress ink and spritzed with water on it to create my background. I then adhered my die cut panel over top and adhered and inlaid the scallop circle. I adhered all my images to create my scene and stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set.

That's it! Nice and simple but love the pop of color!
Be sure to head over to Pretty Pink Posh to check out the new release and I would love for you to join me again on July 14th for the New Release blog hop!
Thank you so much for stopping in today!

CAS Floral Hello featuring Concord and 9th

Stopping in with a nice and quick card today using some colored pencils for coloring.
If you've ever colored with colored pencils before you know that process is actually not quick at all because of all the layering but its a very CAS simple card other then that.

I used the very pretty Hello Lovely stamp set from Concord and 9th on a white card base and colored in with Prisma colored pencil crayons. I'm still learning how to color with these for the best look but there's so many amazing tutorials on YouTube you can find for guidance.
I then stamped the hello sentiment in versa-mark ink on black card stock and heat embossed with white embossing powder and cut into a banner shape and adhered onto my card with some dimensional tape.
I finished off the card with Sparkling Clear confetti from Pretty Pink Posh.

That's it, as I said other then the coloring a super simple card!
Thank you so very much for stopping by today!

That's it!
Wow that was the quickest description ever !

Scallop Background featuring Pretty Pink Posh

I have 2 cards to share with you featuring the same technique but different looks featuring the Scallop Borders 2 die.

I have realized over time that I'm not always the best putting my explanation of how to make a card into words, so I took picture as I went, it also helps me remember because I have a 5 month old at home that doesn't believe in sleeping so I often have mommy brain😋

I then took my card panels, my first one being an A2 size of Neenah desert storm and my second being an A2 size of white card stock, from there I lined up my die cut , temporally taped it down and ran it through my die machine until my panel was in multiple pieces. I made sure to keep those pieces in order as they were cut( as shown in picture) and then adhered them onto my card base in order to create my background! For my kraft colored card I splattered some gold water color on it from the Gansai Tambi starry water colors for some added interest.

For my second card I did the same as above but just using a different border die from the set and I decided to add some color. So I ink blended some distress ink onto the individual pieces , I used Dusty Concord, Broken China and Spiced Marmalade. Once I had the pieces colored I splatter some water on top for a sort of fun distress look and once all dried I adhered onto my base to finish background.

For my sentiment I used the same sentiment for both cards from the Woodland Critters stamp set. I stamped it onto strips of vellum. I should have mentioned before I adhered down my die cut pieces I tucked my vellum under one piece, or you adhere your pieces on a piece of card stock before you put it on your card base.
I wanted to add a little on each piece of vellum on my collored card I used the owl from the Happy Owls stamp set and for my kraft card I used a bee from the Bee Friends stamp set. I stamped them on a white card stock colored in with Copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies

To finish off both my cards I scattered some Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix.
It gives the perfect finishing touch!

That's it for me today!
I appreciate you stopping by!
Hope you have a lovely day!
