Heat Embossing Techniques Videos Water Coloring

Mint Owl Studio Watercolored Card Set Video Hop


Hello! I am thrilled to be participating in the Mint Owl Studio Video Hop along side some amazing crafters! A complete list of hoppers and details on prizes can be found at the end of this post.

Today I have created a set of cards using the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set! I ADORE this set. There are so many amazing sentiments to build on and the fonts are amazing. I will be getting a lot of use out of this set. I decided to create a card set keeping the design simple because with this stamp set, you really don’t need to add much to your projects!

The sentiments and hearts were heat embossed onto some watercolored cardstock with Liquid Platinum and Gold embossing powders and then I added a wash of metallic golds over the top of each card. It is so hard to photograph all the sparkle on these cards, but I promise it is there!  I have a video to go along with this card set as do all of the hoppers!!  You can watch the video right here or over on my youtube channel in HD!

PRIZES: There are prizes to be won from Mint Owl Studio. Be sure to leave comments on each of the hoppers VIDEOS as the winners will be chosen from the video comments on 11/22.
