Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen ( Video ) ( Blending with water for Great Backgrounds )

Update:  The Explore, Adventure, and Memories card was shown on HSN.

I love Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens, the pens are great for coloring, making backgrounds for your cards ( which I will be demonstrating ), or just adding a glittery sparkle to your crafts.  These are probably the most used items in my craft room.  They are used on most every card I do.  Money well spent and if you are interested remember HSN will have its Crafting Event on July 11 2017, so make sure to tune in, they may have a bundle deal??????

This is done with a Splatter technique.  Pick your colors and water color paper, make sure the ink is moving down into the brush and splatter the paper with as many colors as you like.  Caution, make sure you have paper towels around to catch the extra splatter that goes off of the card.  Grab a spray bottle of water and start to spray the paper, the more you spray the more blending you will get.  The balloon stamp is from Sheena Time Traveler Collection.
  See below, I have posted a video .

The same technique was done with this card, the only difference is I did not spray as much water onto the card, which gives it a confetti look, so you can control the look.  The thing I love the most about this technique is you can make any paper match with what any accessories you maybe using. No hunting for matching paper.   I used  Spectrum Aqua water color paper.  Enjoy the Video, and as always, if you have any questions please let me know.  Happy Crafting!!!!!

Simon Says Wednesday: Anything Goes

Simon Says Anything Goes Challenge

I love when you start a card thinking it will be one thing and it turns into something completely different, so needless to say the pictures that I did take as I went along don't match.  I got so into what I was doing I stopped taking pictures lol.....  When I started I wanted to do a lady bug card, not sure how it turned into a turtle but it did and I Love it.  The back ground I sponge with Tim Holtz Distress ink Broken China.  I then used a circle scalloped to do the shaker part of the card.  I stamped and colored the turtle with Spectrum Noir Makers.  The stamp is a turtle carrying a present but I changed it to a pot of planted hearts with twine around it.  I then used vellum for the sentiment.

Wedneday Simon Says: Fantastic Florals

Ok here we are for another great Challenge.  This one is Fantastic Florals Challenge, this is just in time for Spring.  Maybe it can start getting warm!  The challenge can be any kind of flowers stamped, handmade, store bought, whatever kind you want.  So here is my take on this Challenge. 
 I used regular card stock, and I did an ink resist of the flowers on the bottom and the birds up top.  I sponged Diamond Press Ink in green for the grass and sponged the sky in Ranger Tim Holtz's Stormy sky.  The stamp set and the Folder was a free gift when I purchased the magazine Simply Cards & Papercraft.  I love the tree embossing folder,  and stamps they beautiful. I will let you know I had a little problem with the Stamps and I had to re-ink it over a couple of times. 

 I then Colored the tree with Spectrum Noir markers.  I just followed the embossed lines from the folder.

I then took the die and cut out the little flowers for the tree.  After the flowers are cut I took the Spe…

Video Easter and Spectrum Aqua

Well with Easter coming I was asked to do a project with   Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers.  I am going to show you how to dye Easter eggs with  Aqua markers.  Now everyone knows how I feel about Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir Products and this is just one more reason why I LOVE them.  So many things you can do with these products.  Now let me mention this is only my 2nd video and this one I did with a voice over so that makes it my 1st.  Please everyone be nice, lol, and if there is a reason to look on the bright side every person I  have spoke to tells me it gets easier and, lol, I guess we will see about that. I would like to also mention that HSN is having a 24 hour Crafting Event on May 9th watch for some great buys, you can shop for Crafters' Companion and Spectrum Noir items anytime.  Thanks and Happy Crafting!
