Stretching Your SSS Paintables Card Two: Floral Thank You

 Hello Crafters! 

Yesterday I promised you a video showing how I created a second card from the Suzy's Paintable I was working with. 
Here I am delivering. 

Feel special. This nearly never happens in my real life. 

Especially with a day like yesterday. 
My toddler cried because his spoon was too cold for his hand. 
The spoon was slightly colder than room temperature. 
I held it in my had for 15 seconds and then asked if it was warm enough. 
It was.
I could not make this up. 
This is why I have to create folks. 
It's that or drink and I've always been a light weight. 

Speaking of drinks, get one. 
Whatever strikes your fancy. 
There's no judgment here. 
Why do you need a drink?
This video is a long one. 

If you missed yesterday's Hummingbird card let me refresh your memory. 


You can find that video here if you're interested. 
Today we're going to be talking about the huge beautiful bloom. 
Doesn't it just make you smile?!

Got your drink?
Good, let's go. 



I love how the pink creates that dramatic purple in the center! I don't even like purple haha!
The stencil creates such an abstract pattern it's enough to add interest without competing with the image. 


Snipping off the second flower completely changed the composition and allowed me to have more room for a sentiment. I'm totally digging these Nuvo Crystal drops. They are so easy to use! 


Even though the images came from the same card the cards came out so different. I love when I get to make something that is my own. Look at what you have in your stash. How can you create something different from the products you already own to get something that's really yours? 

Thanks for dropping in!

Stretching Your SSS Paintables Card One: Hummingbird Thanks

 
Hello Crafters! 

I'm a huge fan of Suzy Plantamura, especially the paintables she creates for Simon Says Stamp. Her illustrations are always so fun and whimsical! Plus, there is something so nice about having a card all laid out if you just want to sit and color. Which, let's be honest, I want to do. 

However, every once in a while I want to kick it up a notch and that's what were doing today . . . and tomorrow :) 



I loved this paintable from the Mothers and Florals set but I wanted to create two cards with it. This let me make room for a sentiment as well as play a bit with the layout. 


I split the images apart and made my two cards. Today we're going to be making the hummingbird card. Which is a bit different for me but still pretty clean and simple. 




I did a bit of Copic coloring then set it off with the bright white die cut frame. I kept the card simple by only letting a bit of my busy background peek through. 

You can watch the whole card come together in the video below. 



I love how different this card look from the original card! The image was gorgeous before but now it gets to stand alone as the focal point instead of having to share the lime light :) 


If you'd like to see how I made the flower card be sure to stop back tomorrow for that video. 
Thanks so much for visiting!
