Dove of Peace Watercolored with Aqua Painters with a Detailed How To Video!

The Dove of Peace stamp caught my eye immediately and I ordered it on my first pre-order that I placed during Convention. It's also the very first card I created after my pre-order arrived so you know that I was still in love with this stamp even though I'd been tempted with many, many options at Convention and just by browsing the 2015 Holiday Mini Catalog.

One trend going into the Holidays this year is gold and black. I was all over the gold, but the black stopped me in my tracks. On a Christmas card? Really? So, I decided to give it a try and you guessed it . . . I liked it. But my kids flipped over it!! Love at first sight! (...and they are pretty trendy so I guess black and gold is kind of an "in" thing right now!)

But, if black and gold isn't your thing . . . I think you could change up the colors and layer up in Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler and you would have something just as gorgeous and truly more traditional. Have a great day and enjoy this DETAILED video how to put this card together and the step by step for using Aqua Painters to color stamped images.

    Stamping to Share August Swap Cards Part Two "Cards for Kids"

    Today I'm sharing Part Two of our two-part post on Cards fro Kids, our Demo Meeting Swap Theme in August. Enjoy!

    Mary's card is super bright and colorful featuring the stamp set called Cupcake Party. I love the way she plays the dots on this card from the Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper to the Large Dots Embossing Folder to the base of the cup cakes.

    Dawn's card has some cute and colorful images from Zoo Babies for her kid's card. The sweet looking printed paper is from the 6x6 paper stack called Pretty Petals.

    Faith's card features an adorable dog gazing at a balloon. All of the images are from the stamp set called Hey Girl. The colorful paper is from the 6x6 paper stack called Cherry on Top.

    Marlys used circle punches on her Decorative Dots embossed panel to create Peek-a-Boos to the Cherry on Top paper fastened below. Then she used her cupcake punch on the same paper to create her main image accent.

    Dorene's card uses the stamp set Boys Will Be Boys to create the stamped background along with her main image. I love his colorful lights! The sentiment is from Sassy Salutations.

    Katherine's card features the ballerina from Talented Trio. She uses three sparkling rhinestone accents and the skirt is stamped separately, colored, cut out and raised on dimensionals.

    And that's all for this round. Thank you so much for stopping by, I truly appreciate it!!
