Hi there everyone.  I have been working hard on my hand lettering and was able to make a piece of framed wall art that says "But first, Coffee!".  I did this lettering on my iPad and then made a cut file that I sent to my Cricut as a "Print & Cut" file.  Once it was cut out, I added some stamped images and adhered the letters and put everything in a jazzy frame.

I will be making more of these and posting them in the shop; once I figure out how to upload cut files, I will have some free downloads for you too! That's all for today, but you can always check me out on IG by clicking on that slideshow on the right, happy crafting!


I love you oodles!

So I did manage to make the butterfly card I mentioned before, but I wanted to post this card first! I had the idea to make a card that said I love you oodles and had a happy bowl of noodles on the front.  So I altered one of my Avery Elle Stamps and made this card.  The video below details the whole thing, including the watercolor background and the hand lettering. I used Tombow markers to do my lettering and my Kuretake set to do the watercolor.  I used a clear piece of acetate for my watercolor palette to lay down the initial background color.  I have a new set of Ranger Watercolor brushes that I'm using in this video,  I like them a lot.

I hope you enjoyed this video and that it inspired you to try some new ideas with stamps and materials you already have, until next time Happy Crafting!!  

Next post will for sure be about the butterfly card, just have to finish up the video!
