Thank You... for all you do!

Happy Friday! I hope you're having a great week! I wanted to make another card just like I made the other full glitter card this week. I absolutely love how this turned out! :) All of the glitter feels like velvet and won't rub off! :)

Have a great day! :)

Hugs, Ash-

Simply Wonderful Rainbow

Happy Thursday! It's a rainbow kind of wonderful today! I just wanted to share a quick card I put together a few days ago. A beautiful watercolor rainbow again! :)

I used watercolor paper and first embossed the white dots onto the paper using white embossing powder. Then using my Tim Holtz distress markers I made stripes of color across the entire paper. Then using a water brush I blended the colors. Super quick and easy! The embossing resists the watercolor so they stay white. :) I added the adorable banner with "you are simply wonderful." And added a little washi tape from Target to the side of the sentiment. :)

I hope this card brightens your day! My little guy (4 years old)  is going in for surgery later today so we need all the prayers we can get! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!

A Rainbow of Thanks

HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!! So here is the other card I was talking about in yesterdays blog! I use the thanks that was die cut from this rainbow paper on yesterdays card! :) I have a thing for rainbows lately and they are very popular right now! :)

I used some watercolor paper and my Tim Holtz distress markers with a water brush to create this beautiful rainbow paper. :) I had so much fun making it! A super quick and easy technique. :) Then I used my Paper Smooches "THANKS" die and cut out the thanks.

I used my wink of stella clear glitter pen to color in the negative space with glitter. Then added glossy accents over the letters for some extra shine. :)

I woke up at 3am this morning ready to make a card or two so I have another post for tomorrow with a different rainbow card! LOL! So check back for that!

Glittery Shiny Thanks

Happy Tuesday! Well, this would be the first card in 4 months that I've made! LOL! My photography business and family has taken first priority... as they should. It did however feel great to sit down and create something just for fun! I love getting the creative juices flowing. 

I love EVERYTHING glitter!! I walk around permentently with glitter all over me. I decided I would try a technique that I learned from Jennifer McGuire's youtube tutorials. I made the background paper using sticky paper, a stencil, and some glitter! You can learn how to do this technique on her video HERE

I used my thanks die from Paper Smooches to cute out the paper "THANKS." I will be posted another card tomorrow using where I got this Thanks from. You will see I used watercolor paper and watercolor markers to created the rainbow effect. Then used the die to cute it out. :) So keep an eye out for that post coming soon. 

I hope you're doing amazing! Have a blessed day!
