Happy Saturday!

My jaw dropped when I say Girl Friday Lydia's
project for today.
It's stunning!

Think Pretty Posies and Mon Ami...
then take a look at this!

She embossed the images in white, and instead of masking them,
she simply knocked off the embossing powder in the places she wanted to before she heat set it.

She got that deep rich color using Gansai Tambi water colors

I. Love. This!
I love the mixture of bold bright colors with soft gentle colors.
It's like a party on a card!

Have fun looking at it.
It's a great way to start your weekend :)

Happy Friday!!

Girl Friday Julia is in the house today
with a fun video.

This project features gradient stamping with a tool like the MISTI, even though you can of course achieve the same result with an acrylic block.

By inking up the letter separately (masking off the others) you can achieve this fun effect that makes the fun HOORAY sentiment really pop.

Oh gosh it's pretty!!
I hope you enjoyed today's project!!

Happy Tuesday!

Girl Friday Lisa has a darling Christmas card for you today!
She used some fun stuff from our brand new Holiday release.

 I love that blue sleigh!
She used Sleigh Fri-Dies with Sleighride stamps,
and a fun little snowflake from Funky Flakes Fri-Dies.

I love that she hung the bells off the back :)
She used copics and prismacolors pencils to get those pretty colors.
You can view these fun new products HERE

Have a wonderful day!
