Painted Season Masculine Card Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog today, I hope that you are having a wonderful day so far.   I am going to be sharing with you a card I created for my YouTube Live back a couple weeks ago.  I used the Painted Seasons Stamp Set to create my card.  Here's a look at the card.

This was a super easy card to create and only uses just a few supplies.  I used two stamp pads one stamp sets and a scrap of the painted seasons designer series paper.  Here's a look at the live replay. 

For the inside of the card I just simply stamped the pine cone and boughs. 

As of this past Friday we now have matching framelits that you can purchase to match this stamp set.  I know right I couldn't believe it either.  The are the Four Season Framelits and you can purchase them up in my online store while supplies last.  

Thanks for dropping by I hope that you have enjoyed my card today, and the replay of my YouTube Live.  I will be live on Tuesday afternoon about 4 pm CST on there.

Saturday Simple Stamping Episode 14

Hello and welcome to my YouTube Channel and Blog today I am going to share with you another episode of Saturday Simple Stamping!  The stamp set we are using today is a host set called Artfully Folded and features the cutest paper folded swans and other birds.  Rick's Saturday Simple stamping is a series for beginners; where I share quick and easy cards featuring stamps ink and paper.  Every once and awhile I may throw in an additional item, but I try to keep it to just stamps ink and paper as much as possible.  Here's a look at today's card.

This was a real fun card to do for this weeks simple stamping video tutorial.  I loved stamped the followers from the stamp set on the Flirty Flamingo card base (4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2) in Flirty Flamingo Classic Ink.  I cut a little square from Scrap Whisper White cardstock and stamped the swan in Tuxedo black ink and the inside 2nd image in Flirty Flamingo ink along with the sentiment.  It was matted on a piece of Powder Pink Cardstock for a tone on tone monochromatic look.

Blogging Friends March Blog Hop: Theme: April Showers

Hello and welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop; this month our inspirational theme was April Showers.  Which with all the rain we have been having lately was fitting except it was February.  I always heard as a child that April Showers Bring May Flowers.  So for my card today I went with this saying and am sharing some beautiful roses from the Climbing Roses Stamp Set and a little watercoloring to color them in.   Here's a look at my card.

Climbing Roses stamp set, Stampin' Up!, Rick Adkins, Watercolor, Roses
I started out my heat embossing the rose stamp from the set in white stampin emboss powder on watercolor cardstock.  I then heat set that and then started coloring with a little watercolor.  I started out light and build up layers until I got the desired darkness.   After that was dry I then came back in and colored the background.

While the background was still went I flicked on some of the same watercolors colors that I used for the roses.  By doing this while in different degree of dampness it changes how the flicked paint will turn out.  If it's flicked on while there's a lot of water on the page it will spread more, but as it dries and you flick more on there's not as much water so it dries slower and doesn't spread as much.
