Card Collab with Christy from Christy Gets Crafty

Hi everyone!!  I have a fun and special post and video to share with all of you.  My sweetest and dear friend Christy from Christy Gets Crafty and I came together to do a card collaboration.  We used the stamp stamp set and color combination.  She chose the stamp set Gleeful Gardens from Lawn Fawn and I chose the color combination that we used.  I chose it from Pinterest.


I think these two combos worked well together!!  I got brave and decided to do some water coloring for my card.  When I saw the color combo picture, I immediately thought of water color.  So - that is what I tried my hand at.  I started die cutting my water color card stock from Tim Holtz with the largest of the Small Stitched Square frame dies from Lawn Fawn, and then I prepped my card stock with my embossing buddy powder bag for embossing.  I embossed all of my images with my Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, and heat set it with my heat tool.  Then, I used 5 Distress Ink colors to do my water coloring - Evergreen Bough, Worn Lipstick, Old Paper, Gathered Twigs, and Shabby Shutters.  If you watch the video you will see I had a lot of area to cover, but I think the end result turned out pretty well!  Once I was done with the water coloring, I sprayed my piece with Mister Huey's Shine Spray Mist and it gave it something extra and it didn't look so flat.  I then prepared the rest of my elements by die cutting a piece of pattern paper from an older 6x6 pad I had.  I used the Neopolitan 6x6 from Dear Lizzy. I die cut it using the Large Stitched Square frame and I created my card base from a piece of Butter Mints card stock.  I cut it down to 10 x 5 and scored it at 5 inches to create a square card. I adhered my pieces together and called it done!  

I enjoyed doing this collab with Christy.  She is a dear friend and such an amazing talent!!  I am a lucky gal to have her in my life and as a friend!!
