Planner Stickers in Cardmaking

 I admit it ...I am never going to be someone who keeps a planner. I like to buy stickers, but that is one papercraft that I really don't see myself embracing. So let's use some of those stickers on a card. That I will do. Yes, there is a video you can watch...just head here.

Graphic Watercolor Background


I want something bright, so here is what I came up with. I got to use my Gina K Masking paper for the first time. I have heard great things about this paper. It did not disappoint. This was super simple. It is great for men and women. With just a few supplies you are good to go. If you can write well, you could just handwrite a sentiment instead. Hope you try out your paints...I know you have some in your stash, if not you can use your inks as watercolors. That would work too. You can watch this video here.

Triple Mat Stamping

 Decided to go back in time a bit. I have never in all the years of cardmaking made a triple mat stamped card. Not sure why I waited so long. There is probably more than one way to do this but here is the video showing how I decided how to tackle this.

Adult Coloring Page- Made into a Card

 So I picked an adult coloring book up at dollar tree. Of course, that meant a card was going to be made as soon as I got one of the images colored. I like finding things that may be unexpected to add to a card. This is just as good as some of the background papers I own. Check out your dollar tree for some alternative options if you are on a budget. To see the video for this card head here.

This was pretty quick to color so I decided to do a second one.
