Remarkable Watercolors

This pretty card was a CASE from Natalie Lapakko of StampWitch.  I love the colors and decided to share it with my technique class.

The colors are elegant eggplant, berry burst, and melon mambo.  The sentiment is actually early espresso (not chocolate chip).

Below is the video on how to make:

Polished Stone Technique

Happy 4th of July!  Today's technique is called Polished Stone (modified).  Simple technique that can be done in a variety of colors.  These colors are dapper denim and real red.  The Happy Birthday thinlets work great on this card.  There is a piece of vellum behind it so it doesn't get lost in the background.

Here is the video to do the technique:

Wood Pieced Technique

Wood piecing is so popular in the home designing world, so I thought I would share that technique in a card.  I've created a video to learn how to make this card.  Please excuse the bloopers .. every time I tried to record the phone rang, the dog barked, then the phone rang again!  No one ever calls that number.  That of course, got me all flustered and I just couldn't record it one more time.  Please enjoy!



So with all the bloopers, here are the dimensions:

Card base -- Early espresso 5-1/2 x 8"
Pool Party -- 4 x 5-1/4"
Early espresso -- 3-3/4 x 5" (finished size)
Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Pack -- 1/2 x 3" strips

Faux Leather Technique


This is one of my favorite cards ... I love the faux leather technique, which is what we used for the boots.  Lots of sponging, but love the look.

Here is the video on how to do it.  Enjoy.
