Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing Altenew’s Watercolor 36 Pan Set!  If you arrived here from the talented Nicole Picadura blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

This beautiful set of 36 vibrant watercolor half-pans coordinates perfectly with our line of ink. They are intensely pigmented, fade minimally when drying, and some colors have lovely granulating effects. They are stored in a convenient plastic case, designed with space for your brush (included) and a palette in the lid for mixing. Some of the case lids snap off upon opening and can easily snap back on after you are finished creating so you can store your mixed paints with the rest of the pan colors.

The set contains

  • 36 Artist Grade Watercolor Half-Pans

  • Plastic Case

  • Water Brush

Take a look at my Watercolor Traveler’s Notebook:

Altenew Watercolor Pan

I recently took a vacation with my daughter to Cuba and it was amazing. The country is a must see. Although the infrastructure is on the decline, you can still see the beauty in the country. We had a blast and learned a lot.

I used the watercolor pan to add color to my pages that would match the colors in the photos.

I love how the watercolors mix and move across the paper. The interesting thing is, I used linen paper and it did well with the watercolors.  I was surprised. The colors are vibrant and smooth.

Let’s take a look inside:

The right photo is of the port of Havana. So pretty!

Technique Tuesday August 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!! Today I’m showcasing one stamp set from Technique Tuesday August 2018 Release!! I’m so excited about this release because its all about travel and as you are reading this post, I’m on a nice tropical vacation having a blast!! I will share as soon as I’m back!

Let’s take a look:

Sassy Vacation

I love making list of the items I need to pack because believe it or not, I will forget some of the most important items. That’s because I wait to the day before to pack. LOL, I know, I know. Why would I do that, who knows but I do. So, this list reminds me of everything I need.  My daughter laughs at me all the time.

I used Technique Tuesday Sassy Vacation Memories stamp step to decorate my planning page. The stamps are nice and small and perfect for my planner.

Here’s what I did:

  1. Stamp the two images and sentiment using Altenew Jet Black Ink.
  2. Color the images using Winsor & Newton Watercolors Pan Set.
  3. Add some stickers to the left of the page.
  4. Write down my list using Tombow Mono Drawing Pen.

Super easy and effective!

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

Take a look at my card:

For this week’s cue card I used the new Love You to Pieces Clear stamp set and Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die from Technique Tuesday!!  Yes, they are brand new and will be released on March 1st.

This set is so fitting for our cue card.  When you die cut the heart, it appears to be in pieces but the pieces are attached at the corners.  They just need a small pair of scissors to snap those corners to break the pieces apart.  Which is what I did above.

I love how this card turned out.  I also created another card, similar in style, using this same set, take a look here.

Super simple and easy.

What do you think?

Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release Countdown Day 1

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today for the first time as a Technique Tuesday Design Team Member!! I’m super excited because I’ve loved Technique Tuesday for a long time, so to be apart of the team is amazing.

 

Today we are showcasing Technique Tuesday March 2018 Release!  You are going melt into pieces when you see what we have in store for you! So lets get right to it!

Let’s take a look:

Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die

Now tell my you heart didn’t just melt. That Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die is just the cutest!! Guess what, you can pair it with the Love You to Pieces Clear Stamp Set.

The puzzle pieces are attached just at the corners but with a pair of snips the can come apart for versatility. The stamp set is amazing because of the different font styles in each sentiment. I love the bold paired with the smaller lettering.

Here’s how this card was created:

I created a watercolor piece using Prima Watercolor Confections Odyssey set and Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. The colors are delicious!

Once the watercolor piece dries, use a die cutting machine to die cut the Pieces of My Heart Crafting Die.

Position the heart die where you want it on the 4×4 card front, then stamp the sentiment right next to the die cut in the bottom right corner.

Add Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals behind the different pieces and adhere the heart to the card front.

Use We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to round the top corners of the card.

Super clean and simple!!

Where Creativity Meets C9 Watercolor Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Watercolor!!

Watercoloring is one of my favorite mediums to use.  It is so forgiving and no matter what happens it is your masterpiece.  There are no mistakes with watercoloring and that is what is so much fun when I work with them.

For my card today, I created my own background using a couple of colors and a paintbrush. Super easy and totally fun.

Take a look at my card:

For this card, I used Prima’s Confection Odyssey Watercolor, a 12 flat brush and Concord and 9th By Your Side stamp set.

Here’s how I created this card:

  1. Select the colors you want to use.
  2. Wet your brush, pick up a color and create squares on your card front.
  3. Once you have as many squares as you want, heat set so that the watercolor square could dry.
  4. Stamp the sentiment using Altenew Permenant Black ink.
  5. Round the corners using We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.

Super quick and simple!

{Clean and Simple} – Butterfly

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

Take a look at my card:

For this week’s cue card I used my Paper Artsy Eclectica 3 by Kim Dellow paired with Derwent Inktense Pencils.

Simply stamp the small marking stamp using Altenew Permenant Black Ink in the lower left corner.

Then stamp the butterfly image with the same black ink and watercolor the image using the three colors of your choice with the Derwent Inktense Pencils and spread water with a zero paintbrush.

Let the watercolor dry.

Position the butterfly where you want it so that you could stamp the sentiment.  Once the sentiment from Papertrey Ink Butterfly Hope stamp Set is stamped then adhere the butterfly using Stampin Up! Mini Dimension.

Super simple and easy.

{Clean and Simple} – Cherish

Hello everyone!!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Take a look at my card:

For this cue card I went with Darkroom Door Fine Butterflies Stamp Set paired with Altenew More Than Words Stamp Set.

When I think of the word cherish, I think of something special. Love is special and so are are butterflies.  I thought about leaving the butterfly uncolored but quickly changed my mind.  Watercoloring this image really made the image pop.  I used Jane Davenport Mermaid Markers.

Nice, simple and easy.
