Today I am showing you how to simply watercolour the IndigoBlu Layering Stamps using the Tim Holtz Distress Markers. I started by stamping the images onto the Distress Watercolour paper using Black Archival Ink. I then added a bit of colour using the Distress Markers. I dipped a brush in water and painted the image with the colour from the marker. You can always add more colour or multiple colours. I finished off the card by adding the marker around the edge of the card and then painting it with some water. Above I used the Christmas Stocking and Big Holly stamps.
I did the same technique on the Triple Bauble and Triple Parcel stamp sets!
Today I am featuring the Magical stamp and die set from Waffle Flower! I love that this set can be used for Holiday cards as well as regular cards throughout the year. I made a variation of the card using reds for the holidays and pinks for a birthday card! I die cut the pegasus and wings and then stamped the details onto them. When using clear stamps I like to cut first and stamp second. I then stamped my greeting and put the card together!

I then mixed the Frosted Crystal Embossing Powder and the Sky Blue Embossing Powders 50/50 in another container. I removed the protective sheet from the adhesive and covered the adhesive with my embossing powder mixture. I melted the powder using my Heat Tool. The Ranger Adhesive Sheet is designed to with stand the heat – not all adhesive sheets may be able to with stand the heat.
On the first card above I didn’t ink up the paper first. You can see that the card that was inked is a lot more blue. If you don’t want it to be so blue, then don’t ink the paper.
I glued the snowy backdrop onto my card and cut out the Let It Snow die cut from sparkly white paper and added it to the card!

Today I am featuring the Imagine Crafts Iridescent Creative Mediums. These mediums show their true beauty when used on dark surfaces. I used them through a variety of Crafter’s Workshop stencils. Above is the green, blue and purple. They dry smooth with a fabulous shine to them!
To make these cards I used the Turquoise Iridescent Creative Medium through a Snowflake Stencil on an 8 1/2″x11″ piece of black paper. I let the medium completely dry and then cut the sheets into 4 card fronts. I adhered them onto a card, and just like that I had 4 cards to send out to my friends!
I did the same technique using Pink Iridescent Creative Medium and the Crafter’s Workshop Hex Flowers template. These are great for general cards or note cards.
Here are the completed cards I made in the video using a variety of colours of the Iridescent Medium.

On the next episode I am making a card using Frosted Embossing Powders and the Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop Lawn Cut!
In this video I am featuring the Lawn Fawn Tobaggan Together Stamp and Die Set and showing you how I made the card above! I love now that so many companies are matching up their stamp sets with dies. This makes cutting out the images so easy! Since Lawn Fawn has clear stamps, I like to cut the die first. I can then simply stamp the image onto the die cut. I used the Memento Black Dye Ink to stamp, since I was going to be using a Blender marker. I coloured the stamps with Coloured Pencils. But if you ever coloured with pencils, it is hard to get that nice smooth finish. So I used the PrismaColor Blender Marker and went over the image. This blended the pencil crayons, leaving a nice smooth finished look! You can also try this with a Copic Colourless Blending Marker.
I cut the hill from the 6×6 Let’s Bokeh paper pad. I stamped the snowflakes onto the background. You may want to stamp your message before placing your critters. Then just glue your pieces onto your card!
