Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dreams 20: 15 Cards in 30 Days

Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dr..

In April I challenged myself to make 15 cards in 30 days. I knew I would be able to do it if I had the time and I was pleasantly surprised when I surpassed my goal. In total I made 23 cards (I can’t share some as they haven’t been given to the people that they were going to). I’m really happy with what I accomplished and if you would like to see all the cards you can on my card Instagram, but today I thought I would share some of my favorites: Main Stamp: Unity Stamp Company Main Stamp: […]

Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dr..

I’m warning you now, this is going to be a long crafty post. If that is not your thing, go and sign up for Book a Date! Over a year ago I rekindled my love of crafts. When I was younger I used to love to make things at school and at home. But when I restarted this journey it took me a lot of time (and useless supplies) to find my crafty niche. But after a lot of trial and error I figured out that card making is my thing (I know Megan, the girl that hated cards now […]

It’s coming. Soon I’ll be selling my cards on my blog. I’m taking the month of April to really build a stock, and to complete a special request for a friend, but I would say come May you will be able to buy one of my cards if you would like. It is taking me longer than I would like, but creativity is hard sometimes and there are days it just isn’t there. But I promise it will be soon (if anyone is even interested. HA). In the mean time I thought I would share (once again) some of the […]

Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dreams 17: Birthday Cards

Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dr..

Lately I have been making a ton load of birthday cards. My theory is you never don’t need a birthday card for someone. (Plus a friend at work is looking to buy a set of just birthday cards.) Recently I’ve found it is easy to make any design into a birthday card so that’s what I have been doing. Some I have more success on than others but that’s the way it is with any kind of creating. Here are some of my recent cards: I used a variety of products and coloring mediums to do these cards. I love […]

Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dreams 16: Recent Cards – Watercolor

Champagne Wishes and Crafty Dr..

Recently I purchased a new product for my crafty supplies, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Pens. I had seen countless videos about these watercolor pens and figured I would give it a try. Sadly the packs are expensive so I could only get a pack of 24 (I want all the colors now). I have to say they are pretty awesome and fool proof. As someone with no painting ability I haven’t had trouble at all handling these new watercolor markers. They are easy to use and blend perfectly with water or with another Zig marker. Here are some […]
