I am happy to announce that I am the guest designer for October for Tombow! Have a look at how easy it is to use these makers:

If you want to win the markers I used then leave a comment here then head over to the
Tombow Blog where you can leave a comment, see full contest details,  and visit the rest of the designers on the blog hop!

I used the Layered Poppy stamp set from Rubbernecker. It is intended to be stamped and then the watercolor layers (which would be great to ink up with the Tombow pens) would be stamped on top but I found the outline layer so striking that I wanted to just color that. I love stamps and markers that are versatile in design, don’t you?

Make sure you I hope you try these techniques on your next card. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

You’ve Got a Friend in Me {WOYWW & 2 Video Tutorials!}

I had a pretty busy day yesterday but I managed to sneak down to my studio to play a bit:

 

I love anything Wizard of Oz themed! I’ve had this set from Crafty Secrets for quite a while, uninked, and I had to remedy that! I decided to do a video on the chevron resist background and also one on how I colored the image since I get asked for coloring videos a lot. Up first is the background video:

To be honest I scorched the sample in the video, there was smoke coming from my paper but it did not show up in the video LOL! The resist was fine but not as bold as the one on the rectangle card. It wouldn’t be one of my videos without some mishap! Now here is a video on how I colored the image, you will learn a gradient blend and how to get the look of metal.

Here is a close up of the coloring:

 

And here are my cards:

 

And since it is What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday here is my messy post videos desk:

 

Well, that just about does it! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Try something new: a gatefold easel card! {video tutorial}

Happy Monday folks! I saw a really pretty card on a blog the other day (I’m so sorry I cannot find the card I saw, I went hunting for it again, so if you recently posted a pretty gatefold easel card on your blog leave me a link so I can check it out!)  I couldn’t get the lovely card off my mind so I decided to try to make one and came up with this. I used Lily digistamp from my Pretty Posies Digital stamp set for the center panel. By the way, Everything at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff is 36% off through Wednesday! It’s my birthday sale! Anywhoo…on to the card:

 

Here it is closed:

 

Remove the band and open the flaps:

Here is the cutting, scoring template:

 

I tried to find out who originally came up with this idea and saw many more lovely cards (not the one that first inspired me tho!) so if you know who came up with this idea please leave a comment so I can credit them:) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
