If you like to create hand made cards for the holidays, an easy tip to prepare is to make a variety of backgrounds on blank notecards. You can then add a quick sentiment and you have a card ready to hand out or mail.
Halloween and shaker cards go hand in hand in my opinion. Glittery sequins bouncing around in the background do have a candy quality. For my project today, I will be using a new to me product that makes your shaker windows a little more interesting—and easier to make.
If you’ve ever had a difficult time coloring with colored pencils and getting a smooth finish, you may want to try watercolor pencils. In today’s post, I’ll be using the Art Advantage watercolor pencil set to color a pretty wreath of sunflowers and fall foliage.
Lately, I’ve been trying a lot of techniques with my Spectrum Noir Aqua markers. These markers are a great way to get a watercolor look if you’re not that comfortable with traditional water coloring with a brush and paint. One of the really fun techniques I tried was stamping with the markers using a layered stamp set. I really like Avery Elle’s Layered Rose set and wanted to see what these markers could do.
Even though getting together with friends looks a little different right now, there are ways we can stay connected. Sending cards is an easy way to do this and even easier using a scrapbook kit. I’ve mentioned before in previous posts, I love using scrapbooking supplies to make easy cards. You make the most of your supplies and it’s so easy because everything is pre-cut and patterned. All you need are some card bases and a little foam tape.
