THREE videos…

It feels so good to be doing videos again.  :)

Here are two that I shared over on the Hero Arts blog – be sure to click HERE for more details.  I am going to share some additional examples here.

The first – distress watercolor stamping.  I love the results of this technique.  Yummmmmm…

Here is a quick card I did using this watercolor stamping.  Easy peasy.

042209 Watercolor Stems Supplies: Hero Arts swirly flower stamp, Peeled Paint Distress Ink, Broken China Distress Ink, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, watermist bottle, dew drops, Hero Arts flowers, watercolor paper. 

The next video is using Distress Ink for embossed resist.  This is a twist on some great techniques I learned from Tim Holtz.  SO fun.  When I do this technique, I create many tags at once.

Here is another card using the same technique…

042009 Class 1 Supplies: Same as the project HERE.

And, for all of my family who comes here and may want to see some of Colin in action, here is another video to check out.  Or, if you are in love with Tim Holtz, like many women out there… he is in it, too. :)

Hope everyone is having fun with the distress week over on Hero’s blog.  This is only the beginning of the techniques I have to share.  Be sure to come back.

Hugs…

  1. Love the techniques I am going on a scrapping retreat this weekend and think I will just have to try a few of them.
    Thanks for always inspiring me!

  2. I just loved the birthday video! Too darn cute!!!

    ‘Only the beginning’ of the techniques??? AAAAAhhh! I’m leaving today and won’t be home until Sat. evening… The good news is it’s a scrappy retreat..and I’m taking my distress goodies! The bad news is it’s in a very very very rural area! No wireless or computer hookup or anything!

    I am going unplugged… Home to catch up Sunday!

  3. So gorgeous Jennifer (and I mean the cards, not Tim). Your cards are stunning – and the other one on the HA blog, with the gold shine is sooooo pretty too. Thanks for more inspiration. :)

  4. Thanks for the shares – love that cheesy Colin *smile* at the end…they’re all alike :)

  5. Oh my goodness… that Liquid Pearls trick is AWESOME! Who knew?! Thanks for sharing that, Jennifer! All of your cards are just gorgeous.

    What a cutie pie there at the end… “Smile!” and that sweet grin! LOL :)

    So glad you are doing videos again, and wanted you to know how inspired I was by your distress resist stamping technique one by sharing a project on my blog:

    Thanks for all your inspiration and sharing!!!

  21. Thanks so much for the awesome videos!! I’ve had some of those stamp pads but I hate to admit that they’re still in the package because I had NO idea what to do with them!!! I’m off to play….

  22. Great videos and tips – I never would have thought to water down liquid pearls for that perfect shimmer… I’m going to try that technique out this weekend!!! Thanks so much!!!
