"Fixing" a Card with Bless Our Nest with Lynnea

Hello, everyone! It's Lynnea and I have a card video for you today featuring the new Bless Our Nest stamp set from Beth Duff Designs! It's the cutest stamp set with some amazing sentiments and a couple of birds, a birdhouse, and a nest! I'm going to be honest...this video jumps around a bit. I almost didn't share it. This card did NOT go as planned! Haha! But, I wanted to share with you how I fix my mistakes! From ink smudges to design errors! They can all be fixed!






This card didn't look anything like this in the beginning! I had a design in my head - stamp a sentiment and a column of birds and outline them to create almost a picture frame (you will see it in the video) and then do some watercoloring to create a one layer card. That didn't happen (obviously haha!) I did all the work and ended up cutting it apart! The color scheme looked much different in my head! Does that ever happen to you? I had a light red background with a yellow border...and it just looke…

Watercolor with Stencils with Lynnea

Hello, there! It's Lynnea! Thanks for stopping by! Today I have a fun card using the soon to be released Cuddle Like a Panda stamp set from Beth Duff Designs! It's the cutest little panda stamp set with four different panda images and a BUNCH of buildable sentiments!






I created a simple background using a stencil and some watercolor markers. You could use any stencil at all for this design! In fact, I want to revisit this technique with circles, triangles, even stripes! I used the Puffy Heart stencil from Pink & Main and taped it to the back of my 4.25" x 5.5" watercolor cardstock. I used Staedtler dual ended felt tipped markers and chose a yellow, two shades of mint, and two shades of pink for my color palette. I used the tip of the marker to outline the shape of the heart and continued tracing until I had filled up my whole card front. Now comes the fun part! I used my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay sparkle pen to pull the color from the outline of the heart into t…

London Calling - Collaboration with Witt and Sass

When Amy from Witt and Sass and I started talking about our two British themed sets due this fall we knew we had to do something fun with the two sets together. Using Witt and Sass's Fabulously Gobsmacked and BDD's Adventure's Abroad - London, releasing September 22nd, our teams put some awesome work in and made great cards!



 I wanted to use Amy's sentiments as a fun background paper in my first EVER shaker card! Our whole team worked really hard and I can't wait for you to see them all.
