Handlettered Birthday Card

I recently put up a blog post about the Etsy listing of this card.  To view that, click here.

I love to post videos of the how I created my Etsy listings so that viewers, and shopppers, can see that all the products I create are truly made by me.  I also love to inspire people to create their own masterpieces pulling from techniques that I show in my videos.

Please take a moment to share this video with all your crafty friends and family.  Also subscribe to my channel so you won’t miss out on any new content.


Cardmaking – Hope Your Day Is Awesome

That metallic acrylic paint is awesome.  By loosening it up with a little bit of water, I painted on a thin, even coat of the metallic paint onto the watercolor paper.

The results are magical!

I really wish I could tell you where that paint is from.  I hope I can find something comparable when I finally run out of it.

If you have any suggestions for a good metallic acrylic paint set, leave them in the comments below!

A little Christmas 2012 recap..

I was ambitious this past Christmas and created my own gift card holders.. I gave out a lot of gift cards this year..

Here are a few examples of the card holders I made. Each of these are 4bar sized. I had tons of 4bar envelopes left over from my wedding, so I decided to use them up.

Some of them are stamped using Lawn Fawn stamps. I had purchased most of their holiday stamp sets for this Christmas project. Most of them, I just ended up handwriting the sentiment on..

Hope you enjoyed that. I’ve got tons of Christmas gifting crafts I created for this past Christmas. Next week I’ll show you a few money holders..
