Today I have a video tutorial to share using new products from Rebekah Meier Designs line for Therm O Web to create a mixed media butterfly card. I'm also going to be showing you how to make a mottled foil background for your handmade cards with the new Mixed Media Foam Sheets and Foils! This technique is super easy, doesn't require a laminator and it will make your backgrounds pop every time.

You'll find that this technique is not only different but also very easy to incorporate on your projects! Rebekah Meier's line can be mixed and matched with Therm O Web's original Mixed Media Line to create the most unique effects!


Add-on: Butterflies used are from digital stamp set Persevere.

Let me know your thoughts! Would you dip your toe in the mixed media world with this technique? That's all for now. See you on Therm O Web!

Trying Prismacolor Pencils for the first time with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Coloring mediums have been all I've thought about this year, from Zig markers to watercolors... But today I'm trying out Prismacolor pencils for the first time! It is a different medium, slower to begin with, but it is -oh so totally- worth it!



I decided to use Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Mason Jar Bouquet flowers to try out my Prismacolors for the first time. I didn't use any solution to blend the colors, I simple did it the classic way... Layering. Layering requires patience and if you have some form of arthritis you'll feel uncomforable at some point but if you don't press the pencil too hard, apply the color with small circular strokes you will achieve a neat transition.

The flowers turned out so delicate and pretty that I decided to create a very intricate lace card base for them using Anna Griffin's Elegant Embellishments 2 cartridge on my new Cricut Explore Air 2. This card has so many delicate layers and it makes the images look even more classic and elegant. I decided to add a sentiment from my clear stamp set Floral Greetings released by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps early this year. And I think nothing says classic like ribbon so I tied a matching pink bow around the card front and embellished it with a gold button.  



If you want to take a closer look at these stamps visit SNSS shop here. There are many, many more beautiful stamp sets to choose from and even 2 more clear stamp sets I designed myself. That is all for now. I hope you give this coloring medium a try one of these days too! Until next time.
