Embossing and Watercolor Technique On A Card

Hello! Today I am sharing my second guest designer card I made using the Hedgehog Hollow May Card Kit.  I wanted to go rather simple with this card with a pop of color.


Below is a video tutorial showing how I created my card.

In the close-up photos below, you can see the details in the flower border stamp and I love how the chipboard sentiment piece looks on the bright rainbow watercolor strip in the middle.

For the background of the card, I was trying to go for a desert look to it. Not sure I accomplished that or not but I had fun trying. :)  It kinda looks like caramel too, or maybe I am just hungry...lol
Either way, the irRESISTible Texture Spray from Imagine create some great texture on the Rinea Foiled Paper.


Isn't this Wild Things Stamp Set from Pink and Main fun? Super easy to color too!

DIY Bookmarks - Perfect For Back To School

Today I am sharing some DIY bookmarks I created that are perfect for a back to school or for a gift for an avid reader.


Poppystamps & Xyron has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

Below is a video tutorial showing exactly how I created the bookmark.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.


This was my first time ever using the Gemini Foil Press and I had a lot of fun using it with the Poppystamps Lovely Idea die. I really love how you can use any die with this machine. Gives a whole new way to use your dies.  To adhere the little lightbulb die cut I used the Xyron Sticker Maker and then used my Xyron Creative Station Lite with the Xyron Double-Sided Laminate cartridge to laminate my bookmark.
