Friday Feature: Jenninfer McGuire #2

Hello all, I have the second feature card today CASE-ing Jennifer McGuire's card from this video :)

 I changed it up again, and used less elements to create the card. It makes for an elegant CAS card :)  Again I used the Altenew Peony Scrolls stamp set, and heat embossed with white embossing powder, and then colored with Gansai Tambi watercolors.I added the sentiment, then some lace and adhesive backed pearls for a clean look.

I am really enjoying this Feature Friday posts.  It gives me a chance to create and learn from some of my favorite card artists!  Next up...Sandy Allnock!  SWOON :)

Firday Feature: Jennifer McGuire!

Hello everyone :)  I am starting a new Friday Feature series today where I CASE some of my favorite card artists!  Today I will start with the fabulous Jennifer McGuire of Jennifer McGuire Ink.

I created this card by CASE-ing Jennifer's card in this video.  However, I did change things up a bit :)

I colored this card using my Gansai Tambi watercolors :)  I stamped and clear embossed the background with the  Heidi Swapp Mixed Media background stamp, and the sentiment is the Sweet Wishes die and stamps from My Creative Time.  I love the Altenew Peony Scrolls stamp set, it is just gorgeous!

In two weeks I will use the same stamp set and video from Jennifer McGuire, to create another card, a little bit different yet again :)  I will be taking a break next Friday to post a DT project for Quick Creations :)

See you soon!

Friday Feature Altenew's Hennah Elements #3

This is last Friday Feature post for Altenew's Hennah Elements stamp set (for now lol).  This is such a versatile set, I can definitely see doing more.

This also happens to be my favorite of the three, saved the best for last of course!

I wanted to create my own DSP with this stamp set, and wow did it turn out great!  I also created this with watercolor pencils on hot pressed watercolor paper!  I apologize, I can't remember which pencils for sure, but if I had to guess, I'd say these were done with Inktense pencils.  They are nice and bright.

The sentiment and sequins are added from my stash.  But I do have to say, this was the most fun card to make out of the three :)  I love to experiment, and when the experiment turns out so well, just makes my day :)  Do you experiment with different mediums on your cards?  Hmmm, I might see another Friday Feature series in the future....

But for now, next week I will start featuring cards that I have CASEd from some of my favorite card artists!  Sandy Allnock and Jennifer McGuire, just to name a couple :)  I'll leave the rest for you to figure out.

Until then, goodbye for now, keep crafting and come back soon!
