MFT Beautiful Butterflies

I got the MFT Beautiful Butterflies Card Kit back in February.  Just now getting around to using it.  As of today, the kit is still available over on their site.

I decided to try the black embossing one more time.  I had previously thrown away my black powder because it seems to have way more static than others and just simply gets everywhere.  Then again, that could just be me.  Anyway, I used it and did a little watercoloring with my Mermaid Markers.  Very quick and easy card to do.

Hope you enjoy the video and I've listed link below to the Kit and all the supplies.

Crafting on a Budget ~ Episode 2 ~ Digital Stamps, Galaxy Background, & Spinner

For my second Youtube episode of Crafting on a Budget, I wanted to share digital stamps.  These are inexpensive, some free, readily assessable, and can be manipulated to change the size, the opacity, and printed on your home printer.  The type paper you use, will just depend on your personal printer, so I'd suggest trying several different kinds.

I also wanted to try a couple of new techniques for me.  You may already be familiar with the galaxy background and interactive spinner card.  I've never done either, so thought this was the perfect digital stamp to try these techniques.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the video.

Some Bunny and Friendship Blooms

As I've stated before, I just love the new Some Bunny stamp set from SSS.  That bunny and chickie are just darling.  I was trying to think of a way to use the set with an element other than the included egg(s).  While looking through my stamps, I came across the Friendship Blooms from last year and this daffodil was just the perfect size for what I had in mind.  I also ran across the Loving Heart sentiment set and the sentiment I chose just seemed perfect for the look and feel.

I decided I wanted to do some simple and fast coloring, which lead me back to my watercolor pencils that I haven't used in several months.  I use Caran D'ache Supracolor pencils, but I'm sure whatever you have on hand will yield the same result.

As I often do, I filmed the process and I hope you enjoy the video.  The list of supplies is also below.
