Watercolor Card Set

April 16, 2016

I just got a heat gun and embossing powder recently and couldn’t wait to play with them. I made this set of note cards as a donation for a local fundraising auction. I used some of Lawn Fawn’s backdrop stamps and white heat embossing powder to make a resist for my Distress Ink water coloring. Lastly I added flicks of the same inks all over the cards. All of the sentiments are mini stamps that I received when I ordered from Lawn Fawn.

Our neighbors are expecting their first baby. I just love the sweet animals from the Mom + Me set. They make the cutest little family. We gave the parents – to – be a gift card, so instead of a regular card, I made a rip open card with Essentials by Ellen’s Zipper Panel Die.

Starry Thanks Card Set

April 3, 2016

My kiddos’ school was having a basket auction fund raiser. I donated a handmade card set, because what else would I donate? I had also just gotten a heat gun and embossing powder and was having way to much fun learning how to use it.

I water colored each background with Distress Inks. I wanted the cards to each be different, so I cut each water color piece in a slightly different way. After the backgrounds were completely dry and cut, I gold embossed some stars.  I also used a variety of sentiments to give each card a unique feel.
