Simple Valentine's Day card with Distress Ink watercolouring

Hi everyone!

I know it's past that lovey-dovey time of year, but I thought I'd make a super simple and cute Valentine's Day inspired card.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for links to all the products used.



I stamped a bee from our Bee's Knees stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and Canson watercolour paper, before painting the bee with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and a waterbrush. Even though I only used a tiny bit of each colour, it worked out so well! I just love how vibrant he turned out. A good tip is to make sure to dry the ink well before painting. :)



I cut a cardbase to 10x10cm and glued on some strips of beautiful patterned paper and glitter paper. Next, I white heat embossed a sentiment and finished off the card using super pretty sequins and a tiny die cut heart! I think they just make the design pop. Don't you? :)

Pastel Popsicle Card

Hi crafty friends! I'm back with another card and video, this time featuring some yummy popsicles and a sweet pastel theme.

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for links to all the products used.


Before I began making this card, I knew I wanted a cute pastel theme, so I started flipping through my stash of 6x6 patterned papers, and found a pretty pink chevron pattern! I cut it into a thick strip, and adhered it onto a plain white cardbase with tape runner.


For a bit of dimension, I then cut a panel of cardstock and stuck that on top of the chevron with lots of foam adhesive. To go with the cute theme, I decided to use some popsicles from our Anything is Popsicle stamp set, and cut them out with their coordinating dies. For colour, I used my trusty Shinhan Touch Twin Brush Markers, in a candy/pastel theme. The two grape pops were stuck down with sticky glue dots, while the blueberry one was stuck down with a few foam squares.


To finish the card, I wanted something to tie in the blue of the popsicle, so I cut a strip of cardstock as a little banner, and heat embossed a cute sentiment on it, and for some sparkle glued on some sequins.
