Watercolor poppy flowers and tutorial.

Today, I am sharing a watercolor card with poppy flowers, stems and buds.


Sentiment:  Hello friend.

These pretty flower stamped images were brought to life with watercolor pencils.  I like that it is perfectly imperfect.  The sentiment was heat embossed onto a vellum panel.
I incorporated two of the newest kits from Unity.  The flowers pieces were all separate images.  I decided to make a poppy plant with them.

Here is a quick video tutorial for these poppies.


And here it is a little closer:

A love themed floral card with dreamy accents.


Sentiment:  You make my heart sing.

This was stamped with the newest Unity releases.  I made a wreath frame from flowers and branches and then added the sentiment.  To soften the look, I added a dreamy trim with white blending.
This is great for a loved one, anniversary or Valentine's Day.

Here is a video tutorial for this floral card.

Because, I am forever in need of birthday cards, here is a mixed media style masculine card with a birthday twist.


Sentiment:  Happy B-day.

This was stamped with a holiday kit, but it can totally work for birthdays.  I used the stars, added a birthday die-cut sentiment and mixed media watercolor to get this masculine look.

Here is a quick video tutorial for ink smooshing on this masculine card.

Hello, it's Gaylynn here with a project for the blog hop with CardMaker Magazine and Spellbinders.

I am featuring the lovely Spellbinders Large Die of the Month for September 2017.


Sentiment:  Happy YOU day.

For this design, I used patterned paper for the background.  I wanted a soft look, so the intricate die-cut details are in white and in turquoise.  I trimmed this beautiful die-cut to fit my A2 size card.
