So it's not July (or December yet!) but here are some early Christmas cards I made!

ScrappyScrappy: Big Blog Hop + [NEW VIDEOS] with Unity Stamp - Christmas card Glitter Snow paste #scrappyscrappy #unitystampco #card #cardmaking #christmas #holiday #papercraft #glittersnow #timholtz #distressink #copic #stamp #stamping

I made this card using Eve Girl -- which I have colored her in with my Copic markers. Then I inked the background with some Tim Holtz distress ink {Broken China}.

To create my glitter snow paste, I used Golden's Fiber Paste with Tim Holtz "splatters" stencil -- and then I sprinkled the paste while it was still wet with some Diamond Sugar dust glitter.

And ta-da! 
I made my very own glitter snow paste. :)

For my next Christmas card, I wanted to try something fun!

First I stamped the cute bird from the Cool Little Christmas  kit and colored him in with Copic markers. Then for the Christmas ornament, I carefully cut out the insides with a blade (DO BE CAREFUL!!) and used that part as my shaker element!

Do watch the video above on how I made the shaker part :)

And for my final card, it's some watercolor magic time!

ScrappyScrappy: Big Blog Hop + [NEW VIDEOS] with Unity Stamp - Molotow Masking Watercolor #scrappyscrappy #unitystampco #card #cardmaking #maskingfluid #molotow #papercraft #vivadecor #gansaitambi #flowers #watercolor #stamp #stamping

I am using Peyton Girl ---which I think this stamp is SOOO beautiful --- and colored just the flowers in with my Kuretake Clean Color Real brush pens.

For the background, I used the Molotow masking fluid pen to draw out the motif and then painting it over with my Gansai Tambi gold watercolor paint.

I also added some liquid pearls with Viva Decor's paper pen in Gold.

Under the Sea Slider Card with SVG Attic

Happy Monday.
I am sharing my DT post over at the SVG Attic Blog --  an interactive slider card I made using CG Under the Sea kit.
This set is AMAZING and Cyndy did such a great job creating this kit.

Interactive cards are THE trend right now and this card is just PERFECT to go wild with your imagination.

I gave the diver a funky cool looking suit to swim under the sea with all the pretty sea creatures.
Oh, and he says "Hi there"! :)

I inked up the corals with some distress inks for some soft blend of colors and added glitter to the bubbles too.

Faux Watercolor Painted Poppies with Unity Stamp

Hi :)

Lately I've been seeing so many watercolor paintings that are AMAZING and I'm only starting out --- so I may not be as good as some I'm inspired by. But hey.. Art is one's way of exploring and everyone has their own way of expressing themselves. So, art is never about being perfect but having FUN doing it :)

So, since I really wanted to paint some flowers --- I decided to "cheat" and use the beautiful poppy stamps from Unity Stamp's Kit of the Month 06/2016 "Beautiful One"

ScrappyScrappy: Faux Watercolor Painted Poppies #unitystampco #scrappyscrappy #poppy #watercolor #chalkink #flowers #card #papercraft #cardmaking #emboss #butterfly #gold

I inked up the flowers using VersaMagic chalk inks and mixed the colors before stamping. What I love about chalk inks is -- the colors are so pretty and it does mimic the watercolor painting feel.

And BONUS feature is -- the ink stays wet for a while so I was able to even emboss my butterfly partially! :)

So, do try it out for yourself and show me what you made in our Facebook Unity {show & tell} group.

Have a wonderful day and DON'T be afraid to TRY new things :)

Cute Tutu Glitter card with The Cutting Cafe

Happy mid week! 
It's almost the weekend and it's time for another Inspiration Time on The Cutting Cafe blog with the Design Team.

This week we are SUPER SIZING our projects -- making it BIG and NICE! :)

I made this cute tutu glitter card using the All About Girls printable stamp set.

ScrappyScrappy: Cute Tutu Glitter card with The Cutting Cafe #scrappyscrappy #thecuttingcafe #card #cardmaking #ballerina #tutu #distressglitter #timholtz #glitter #printable

I SUPER SIZED and printed the colored ballerina tutu dress to fit my 4" x 6" card and glittered it up using Tim Holtz's Distress Glitters in Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Pumice Stone.

For the background I mixed a few of the words included in this printable stamp set and made it all pinky pink :)

I also added some Viva Decor paper pen liquid pearls in pink for some extra interest.

Here's a close up of the cute tutu dress -- in all its glitzy glitter!
