Watercoloring and Embossing Fall Card

Hey peeps.  Happy Friday.  I'm working with some gorgeous Daniel Smith watercolor paints today and gold embossing powder.  I love watching Yana Smakula watercolor and she shared a quick technique on how to stamp multiple images without having to mask off your images.  She made such a beautiful card and you can see it here.  I was so inspired by her I decided to make a card of my own.


The stamp set is from Simon Says Stamp and it's called Fractile Leaves.  The sentiment is from a older stamp set from Sugarpea Designs.  I love how this card turned out with the deep blue background.  Love using the gold embossing powder instead of white I would of normally used.





Have a fabulous weekend everyone.  See you back here on Monday!!

Watercoloring With Distress Inks Tutorial

Hey peeps.  Happy Monday.  I LOVE watercoloring.  It has become a go-to tool in my craft room. To me it's a very free flowing coloring process that can give you stunning results.  Today I'm going to share a little bit of watercoloring with stamps.  Yes, you can use a stamp as a to watercolor with.  Just stamp the impression with distress inks and you can easily move the shape of the image to get a watercolored look.


I loved using the Hope stamp set from Concord & 9th as it renders a beautiful flower watercolored or just stamped.



Here is a tutorial sharing how easy this technique can be.  You can do this with any flower stamp that has a nice lined stamp and will be easy to blend to a watercolor effect.  You can watch the video here or on my YT channel mzdanajoy.




All products used in the tutorial are listed below.  Affiliate links where used at no cost to you.  Have a great Monday everyone and I'll see you back here soon.

Merry Making Card Class - Day 2

Happy Friday everyone. I'm sharing another card for the Merry Making card class.  This is such a cool technique and I will definitely be making more of these cards.


To achieve this background I used the abstract triangles background stamp from Simon Says Stamp and Copic markers.  Next I splatted on small gold paint and added a very pretty large sentiment using a stamp set from Paper Smooches.  I'll try to share a tutorial after the class is finished on how this card come together.  






I love bold graphic designs on my cards and this one really is my favorite of all the cards I have made so far during the class. (I know I've only shared two here on my blog but I've made a total of five during the class).  Okay time to get back to "class" and work on my homework.  Best homework to ever have.  LOL  Have a great Friday everyone.

Merry Making Card Class - Day 1

Hey peeps.  I'm participating in the Merry Making Online Card Class.  I've participated in a few of the classes on this site and again I'm really enjoying this one.  Here is one of my cards from the class.  I'll be sharing more with you as the class goes along.

For this card I used some distress oxide inks in shades of purple and an older snowflake stamp set from My Favorite Things.  The popped up merry sentiment is from Altenew and the sentiment on the black strip from Lawn Fawn.  


I'll be back with more holiday cards to share my classwork with you.  Have a great day everyone.
