Thankful for You | Stamping Bella Watercolor

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you’ve had a wonderful day with your loved ones. I’m sharing another fall card with you today. I’m again using a Stamping Bella Tiny Townies design, this one is called Fay Loves Fall and she is just adorable.

You can check out the video here:

Here are some still shots:

I love using that white gel pen as an accent, it adds a much needed pop.

Make Pie | Stamping Bella Watercolor

Hello there!

I’m aiming to share a few fall cards with you before I start my Christmas series. So today I’ve done a watercolor using an adorable tiny townie from Stamping Bella. You can check out the process video here:

Here are some still shots of the finished card:

Isn’t she adorable?!? Stamping Bella is one of my favorite companies and her Tiny Townie line is just the cutest of all.

And that sentiment – what an original take on the phrase. It’s bound to put a smile on any one’s face.

13 Days of Halloween – Day 8

Hello everyone,

Here we are, Sunday again – How do the weekends always go by so fast?

Well in any case, today is Day 8 of my Halloween series and I’d like to share another watercolor with you. I found Stamping Bella a few years ago and the little Tiny Townie series is my absolute favorite, but really all their stuff is great and super fun to color! You can take a look at the process video here:

This little witch isn’t scary at all – I think she’s Fab-BOO-lous! (sorry, couldn’t resist)

Here are some close-ups of the finished card:

Card FrontInside

The black ink is easy to read in real life, but it gave my camera some trouble when I was shooting it. Sorry the color is a bit off, this was the best photo of the batch and I wanted you to be able to read the sentiment clearly.

Card & Envelope

It’s hard to get the shimmer to show in the pictures but it really gives the finished picture some extra pop!

Thanks for stopping by today, I’ll have some more Halloween fun to share with you tomorrow.

xoxo, Sarah

Mama Elephant Botanic Hello | Watercolor

Hello! Hope your week is going well…

Over the weekend I was in the mood to watercolor (I blame the SSS June card kit) so I pulled out the Mama Elephant Botanic Hello stamp set and went to work.

I’ve had this stamp set sitting in my stash for months now and don’t know what took me so long to get to it. Just time I guess, there is never enough of it. Especially for crafting! I started keeping all the stamps I purchase in a box and I’m not allowed to put them away until they’ve been used at least once. I’ll never catch up, but it’s a problem I wouldn’t wish to be rid of (though I have slowed down a bit).

I used my Kuretake watercolor set and since I did the clear embossing and it’s difficult to see on the white paper, I thought it was really fun to watch it appear as I added the colors.

 

 

It ended up being very tropical which worked out well for a summer time card.

I didn’t show it in the video, but while I was at it, I stamped a second image and heat embossed it in black because I wasn’t sure what kind of outline I wanted to work with. I decided I liked the clear embossing best, but I had the second panel so I went ahead and watercolored it with the exact same colors.

second card

I still like the lighter image best, but I wanted to share the second card with you too. Crazy how different the same colors can look just with the change in embossing powder and finishing huh? Let me know which one you like best in the comments below.
