Using Vinyl to Create Watercolor Cards + How to Video


Recently I have seen watercolor cards popping up everywhere ! So I had to jump on board and give them a try!


Before I even got started I watched tons of you tube videos but I have to say I fell in love with Kristina Werner Design videos. What a talented artist! I even went out and purchased some masking fluid to create something like I saw from one of her tutorials. But then one night, I had a light bulb moment and thought to myself why not try making a card using vinyl rather than the masking fluid. With the fluid you need to be really steady with your hand and have great calligraphy skills. But, with vinyl all you need is a nice font and a electronic cutting machine. The designs with the Silhouette are endless!

So then came the experiment and I am pleased to say I am truly happy with the results. I have to admit I had so much fun working with watercolors that I am positive this will be the first of many projects using them!

Take a look as I flub my way through my first actual (speaking) video tutorial. I thought it would be cool for you to see as I saw my experiment come to life! Hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think :)


Here is a look at all 3 cards I made created using this same technique. Mini works of art!


Stamps I used come from Snarky Stamps found here.

Hope you enjoyed this fun and unique way of personalizing watercolor cards using vinyl :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Freakin' Awesome Snarky Stamps 3X3 Cards


Hi Guys!

Today I want to share some really fun quick 3x3 cards I made using a couple of Snarky Stamp Sets created exclusively for Paper Issues. I have had these for a while now and have been dying to try them out! Check out the Snarky Stamps sets below...  the stuff you can come up with is endless! 



Anyways, I made these 5 piece sets for some colleagues of mine at work. I'm sure they will get a kick out of them as they are not your typical greeting card quotes!

Hoping that no one takes offense to them as they are meant for laughs!


Here are a few close ups of each card.




Here is a pic of the back of the card. I have had this Justrite wood block stamp for years and am just starting to use it now... I'm such a craft hoarder! Yup, freakin' rights, LOL! ;)


Hope this has inspired you to be real and create your own Snarky Cards, just remember they aren't meant for everyone, and hope you liked them anyways ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
