Happy Heart DayTutorial

I've had a new package of goodies from
MY FAVORITE THINGS
sitting on my desk, so this past week I dove in and got crafty
with stamps, dies and Prismacolor pencils!
Here's a look at one of the cards that I made with the 
Pure Innocence Happy Banner Stamp & Die Set:

I started with a 3.25" circle of white cardstock that was sprayed with Citron Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.  The circle was trimmed with Bubblegum Twine by Doodlebug Design and trimmed around the back with white pom pom trim.


Next, I traced around the die with a pencil onto a piece of smooth white cardstock.
   The image was carefully stamped inside of the tracing with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  
I proceeded to color in the image with Prismacolor pencils and used gamsol and
blending stumps to create a watercolor effect.  

After completely coloring the image, the die was lined up with the tracing and then 
cut out with the WeR Memory Keepers' Evolution Advanced manual die-cutting system.

For the background papers I used a gingham swimming pool and swiss dot bubblegum
prints from Doodlebug Design.  

The bottom was embellished with a satin scallop ribbon by May Arts.

There is a fantastic video tutorial over at 
Inky Antics on how to use gamsol and blending stumps.
I hope you'll check it out and give it a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
