My first card features the CITY GIRLS: RETAIL THERAPY! HAHAHA! The girl with all those shopping bags piled so high you can’t see her face! HILARIOUS!!!!!! You can watch the video right here on the blog or over on my youtube channel by clicking HERE!  DISCLOSURE: I HAD TO REMOVE THE MUSIC I PLAYED DURING THE FEW MINUTES I WAS COLORING AS YOUTUBE CLAIMED IT WAS COPYRIGHT PROTECTED, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS NOT. I HAVE BEEN PLAYING THAT MUSIC FOR YEARS AND IT WAS PURCHASED OUTRIGHT. I APPEALED BUT LOST FOR WHATEVER REASON. TO AVOID ANY ISSUES, I JUST REMOVED THE MUSIC BUT YOU WILL HAVE SOME AWKWARD SILENCE WHILE I AM COLORING – SO SORRY!

For my second card, I used one of the amazing background stamps The Ton has become famous for! They cover the entire card front and is really all you need to make a beautiful card! I used the FOLK ART FLORALS BACKGROUND stamp, heat embossed it with The Ton’s Rose Gold embossing powder  and then did some watercoloring over the top.

I die cut the FABULOUS word die a few times and glued them on top of each other to add some dimension. After adhering the watercolored panel to a red card base, I placed the “fabulous” back into the negative space. I love the pop of dimension and the red shining thru from the card base. I selectively inked the “classy” sentiment from the FRESH CUT GARDEN ROSE OUTLINE STAMP SET, stamped it with The Ton’s Hampton White pigment ink onto some black cardstock (I think I pulled out of the garbage, no joke, lol) and heat set…

Check out how the “fabulous” just pops off the page???
