Dogwood Thank You Card - using Zig Clean Color Brushes + Stamping


Hello everyone!

Today I want to show you how easy it was to create this beautiful watercolored  Dogwood Thank You Card. Recently received some Zig Clean Clean Color Brushes and thought I would experiment with them and this is the result!


I was very please with how easy it was to do and wanted to share with you how you could obtain the same or similar results. As you will see my water colouring isn't perfect, and that is totally OK with me, but I still think the results are beautiful! ;)

To show you how I have recorded a really short process video.
To watch it on You Tube click → HERE!

Hope you were inspired today by my quick Dogwood Thank You Card using Zig Clean Color Brushes and Stamping Technique! Once you give this a try you will see what I mean. Oh and just one more important thing make sure you use WATER COLOUR paper or you maybe disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Spring Thank You Card


Hello crafty friends!

Today I have another sweet and simple Spring Thank You card to share with you.

I keep getting inspired by all the crafty goodness from the FB Stamping Enablers Group. If you are at all interested in stamping you need to join their group! BTW I'm not affiliated with them at all, but if you are looking to get inspired they are a truly an enabling group :)

What better way to say thank you then with flowers!
At least these ones will last forever ;)


Here is the recipe for this card:
  • Stamps - Spring Hello by Lia - Hero Arts
  • Ink - distress inks - Tim Holtz
    • Tuxedo Black - Memento
  • Blending tool - 1 Inch Round - Ranger
  • Stamp Positioner - my own DIY Stamping tool
  • Dies - Wonky Stiched Rectangles Stax- My Favorite Things Die-Namics 
    • Flower pot (present) - Party Dies - Craftin Desert Divas
  • Cardstock - Neenah Solar White 80lbs
    • Craft - Recollections
  • Twine - hemp twine

The flower and leaf stamps once stamped were then cut on the Silhouette PixScan mat using a scanner. Click HERE for a previous tutorial on the pixscan/scanner method.

The hardest part of the card was piecing and layering the flower arrangement!


 Hope you've enjoyed my card today :)

Thank YOU all for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)

Hello Spring Celtic Card | SVGCuts

Hello Everyone!!!

I cannot remember the last time we have had such a mild winter. The little snow that we had is almost all gone! Every year it feels like we only get a few weeks of Spring and then go straight into summer because of our extremely long winters! This year I think we will see it fairly soon (fingers crossed). I cannot wait for Spring to arrive!

When I first saw the latest FREE Celtic Card file from SVGCuts, I immediately was inspired to create a Spring/Easter card. Look just how beautiful it turned out!
