Simple Watercoloring with Stamped Images {Picket Fence Studios}


Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card I created using Picket Fence Studios stamps and some of my favorite handmade watercolors. I really like the look of this type of line art image and couldn't wait to create a painterly look using my watercolors for a clean and simple card. 


I love the soft look these watercolors created - this is one of my favorite techniques to use when watercoloring stamps and watercoloring in general. It's quick, simple and super effective (to quote on of my favorite YouTubers!)


I hope you will enjoy the watercolor process video to create this card below or on my YouTube channel. SPOILER ALERT: I had a super cute buddy "helping" me or rather keeping my company for this one. If you aren't already a subscriber, I would appreciate your support and as always truly appreciate each and every one of you!

Picket Fence Studios + Watercolor for World Cardmaking Day 2019!


Hi everyone! Happy World Cardmaking Day 2019!! A couple weeks ago (or maybe just a week ago?!) I went to the Scrapbook Expo in Denver and fell in love with a new to me company - Picket Fence Studios. I had a blast with friends and got some new goodies of course like this cute mermaid stamp.


Along with her, I picked up some new Prima Marketing, Inc watercolor palettes and couldn't wait to pair them together. 


I hope you'll check out the coloring video on my youtube channel or below! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and hope you have a great day celebrating World Cardmaking Day!

#ShowUsYourMEdia Gratitude Challenge #1


Hi everyone! Happy mixed media Monday - after a long summer focused on our house and getting it ready to list, it has been so nice to get back to doing some art in my free time again. I have packed up a lot of my supplies and I am actually really enjoying the simplicity of not having ALLTHETHINGS because I have realized that clutter actually stifles my creativity...so hopefully I can keep this up!


I am working in the Dina Wakley Media 6x6 journal for the #ShowUsYourMEdia A Year of Gratitude challenge that started up again this month. For more details, be sure to check out the Ranger Ink blog. Dina Wakley's blog is a great place to see just how gratitude can improve your quality of life and why she chose to focus on it for the next 12 months. 


The first challenge prompted us to think about Simple Pleasures in our lives. Once you start thinking about it, the list becomes endless but the first thought that ran in my head was simply: Music. I Love music...LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I can listen to it all day long. In fact, one of the reasons I do voice overs is because when I'm creating art, I listen to music. LOUDly. 


I hope you will enjoy the process video below as well. I go more into the reason behind this page, what I plan to accomplish with this challenge over the next 12 months and a bit of my process.

Simple Watercolor painting using Shawn Petite Stencils


Today, I'm sharing my first project as part of the Shawn Petite Creative TeamToday I kept it pretty simple because all I've wanted to do was watercolor this deer and paint some flowers. I really love how this piece turned out - so much so, that I actually framed it and it's now sitting on my mantle! I know it probably isn't what you are used to seeing done with Shawn Petite's amazing stencils but I hope you get some inspiration from it.

Head over to my YouTube Channel or Shawn Petite's Blog to see the video.

Unboxing The Greeting Farm's NEW Mystery Stamp Box!


Hi Friends! I am super excited about this video. I LOVE surprises so when I heard The Greeting Farm was doing a Mystery Box filled with their stamps, I couldn't wait to get mine! It has arrived and I go over all the details in the video but here are a few things I want to point out:

1. **SPOILER ALERT** All Mystery boxes contain the same items SO if you did get one and haven't received it yet; don't watch this video if you don't want to ruin the surprise! LOL It is an unboxing and I'm revealing what is inside!

2. It is NOT a subscription box. It was a one time preorder item in May and they are now shipping in June. All the stamps inside are exclusive, brand new and not available anywhere else at this time.

3. You are not able to purchase this particular mystery box any longer. If you LOVE what you see (and I'm pretty sure you will!) be sure to head over to The Greeting Farm and scroll to the bottom to sign up for their newsletter. This is the BEST way to get notified when the next mystery box is up for preorder to be able to get it. You can also follow The Greeting Farm on Instagram and Facebook but some people did not see those posts this time and missed out. Newsletter is best!

So if you are ready to see what's inside - just watch below or head over to my YouTube Channel



Thanks so much for watching - I hope you enjoyed the video. I know it's not normal for me to do unboxing but they are fun every once in awhile and I'm a total goof ball in this one because of  my uninhibited  and true response to what is inside! I think this box is amazing - it has a variety of stamps from critters to the classic Anya, some great sentiments and even a brand new stamp from a line we haven't seen in a while! Let me know in the comments below if you would like me to color with Copics or Watercolors for my next card making video featuring one of the stamps from this box!
