A Succulent Mothers Day Card




Hi Friends I am back at it again today creating a really fun and unique mothers day card.
I love Succulents, they are so beautiful and they come in so many different shapes and sizes.
I noline watercolored these up with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens. 
I first stamped it out with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink and then added small amounts of Zig brush pens to it. Using my Zen water Brushes, I dragged the color out and dropped in color where I needed it.





I stamped the photo strip on acetate and then fussy cut it out. Cute right??? :D






Crafting Life Hack...
I know we have all been hearing about the Life changing Blending Brushes. But I went to my local CVS store and picked this up. I feel they work just as well in my opinion. They blend great and they are cheaper. I don't loose any of the fibers out of them and they easily wipe off so you can use them with all your colors. They come in a pack of 3 Large, Medium, and Small.



Well thats if for me today. I want to thank you so much for stopping by my blog today, and Please leave a comment so I can thank you. I would also love to follow other crafty people so make sure you share your blog info so I can follow you  back. Until next time Keep Crafting!!!!

Easy Watercoloring




Clean and Simple!


Hi Friends. I have been busy creating some fun cards this new year, and I realized I haven't taken the time to blog about them.
I LOVE flowers, they are always my go to when I have not mojo, and this stamp designed by Graciellie Design is AMAZING!
It is so easy to create this style of watercoloring. What you will need is your favorite way to watercolor, a water brush or water pen, some distress ink and Stazon ink for your image.









 I put down a light layer of water first then used my Zig Clean color pens and scribbled them on my Tim Holtz Glass work space, picked up the color with my water brush pen and just colored away. It was literally that easy. Before the teal dried I dropped in my purple for some fun. 
I then used my distress ink Antique linen for a wash look around the flower, next I took my black soot distress ink and splattered around the flower to give it some depth.

Well that's all for today. I do hope to be doing some videos soon so keep on the look out for some fun desperation. 


As always Keep Stampin and I'll see you next time. Bye

Red and Craft Hello Friend





Hi all Amanda here again!

I have been missing my crafty space so much this December, so I carved out some time today to creat this fun card. 
I have always loved Red and Craft card stock together. There is just something so stunning about it.

I used Purple Onion Designs Moose that I am OBSESSED with, and colored it up with Prismacolor Pencils. So cute right!
I used Stampers Anonymous Crazy Talk CMS2236 for the sentiment. 






I used Gina K Premium Pigment  white Ink with the All Night Media background stamp that looks like snowflakes. I then heat set the ink to make sure it doesn't smear. SO MUCH FUN!

I used Newtons Nook Designs Purr-fect dies They are postage style and I love them so much!
I used some white sequins for some sparkle. 





I used white embossing powder for the sentiment and popped it up on Popdots. 


Well I hope you enjoyed this little fun card, and as always Keep Stamping!

Hi friends Amanda here again. I know I was going to post all month this December but... my month got crazy busy with family and Christmas. So  I just wanted to share a fun card I made using Newton's Nook Designs  Moose Mountain.
It is so much fun to color these little moose up and put them on a card. I am just obsessed with them.

I added glossy accents to his goggles and some Gelly  Roll pen for dots and highlights.
The Mountians are Lawn Fawn Stitched Mountain Boarders
and the hill slops are Lawn Fawn Stiched Hillside Boarders.

I added Stickles Frosted Lace to the snow to give it some shine .

I’ve entered this card in the Coffee Lovers Fall/Winter Blog Hop
I love all things moose and when Newtons Nook came out with this adorable snowboarding set I know I had to have it.
