Ready Set Stamp with LLC Video Collaboration: Masking and Peerless Watercoloring

Ready Set Stamp Square_v2

Hello everyone! Welcome to our very first Collab with LLC Ready Set Stamp series! YUP! A collaborative video series!!!  This has been in the works for quite some time and we are so very excited that today is here! This is a monthly video collaboration with Laura Sterckx and Catherine Pooler (Get the title, LLC, HAHAHA). Each month, we will bring you a fun video/project using the product from a specific manufacturer! It will be so fun to see how each of us use the same product to come up with completely different designs! Each collaboration will have a prize! To be eligible for the prize, you must leave a comment on all three videos in the youtube comments section of each video! More on that in a bit!!!!

For our collaboration today, we are using the Best Birthday stamp set from Clearly Besotted!! They also have coordinating dies as well. I wanted to keep my project one layer so I opted to do some masking and watercoloring using Peerless Watercolors.  I also added is some fun black texture flicks and distressed the edges of my card panel…. These little chubby balloon critters. How cute are they seriously! 🙂


As I mentioned before, we all have videos to go along with our projects! You can watch my video by clicking HERE to watch in HD.  The prize winner will be chosen from the comments left on our youtube videos!

PRIZE: Stephanie, owner of Clearly Besotted, has generally offered up a prize!  ONE LUCKY YOUTUBE COMMENTER will receive a $45 gift certificate to Clearly Besotted! That is amazing! You have until September 20th to leave your comments on the videos. The winner will be notified by me in one week!

I have linked to Laura and Catherine’s blog and video information below. So hop on over and see what they have in store for you!
