Fishing You All The Best


Hello Crafty Friends!



No coloring today on my fish bowl card. I've been a bit behind with my DT creations due to life being in the way but finally caught up. This die set - released earlier this month -  is called NEW Kitty Cat  Extras die set. I've used the fish bowl and fish dies from this set to create the main image. The die cut water plants are from an older set called Build an Ocean die set. I used the Making Waves stencil to create the water in the bowl. A little extra touch was added by using one of the NEW Fish & Mice border dies with an underlayer. of matching blue cardstock.

Hot Flash - Whimsy Mini Release


Happy Memorial Day!


Whimsy Stamps is having another Mini-Release today and I am showcasing several of the new stamps and dies on my comic-book style card today. The NEW Menopause clear stamp set is just hilarious {and fits me oh so well...LOL} and goes perfectly with the the NEW Comic Speech Bubble dies and NEW WTF Large Word & Shadow die. All the A2 sized Wonky Window dies are perfect for creating comic-book style cards. I went with the Wonky Window 1 die on my card.
I colored the image using Karin Markers on Bristol smooth paper. If you heard me say I don't like Bristol smooth for watercolors, you can read what changed my mind here

Moo-chas Gracias

Happy Wednesday!


On todays card I showcase super adorable stamps from the Crissy Armstrong collection that were released earlier this month. This set is called Barnyard Squares. I stamped onto Bristol smooth cardstock and colored with my ZIG brush markers. The A2 size die is called 

I have to say I never liked the Bristol smooth for watercoloring until recently. I bought a new pad of the Bristol smooth from Strathmore and compared it to the one I had for several years already (also Bristol smooth from Strathmore). Not only is the cover different but also the paper feels different and is in deed smoother. It looks like they changed the way they seize the paper. With the old one it was not possible to watercolor, the paint soaked into the paper immediately. Love the newer Bristol smooth and I also love that it is bright white!
