VIDEO: SSS Mini Haul, Prismacolors, & Pop-Up Kitties

Happy early Saturday morning (since I'm once again up past midnight feeding my craft addiction)!  I've got another fun video for ya tonight with a mini haul from Simon Says Stamp - so many good deals!!! - and a clean and simple card using some cute little kitties by Docrafts Papermania and the Mama Elephant Pop-Up Trio dies.


To color these precious little gals I busted out my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  This technique had kind of accumulated some cobwebs in my house as I started growing my Copic collection, discovering watercolors, and gettin' Ziggy wit' it; but it was really fun to knock those cobwebs off and get my gamsol on!  I taught myself this technique by watching YouTube videos when I first began stamping a year ago and it's really fun for me to now be able to film my own video, hopefully inspiring someone else to pursue their crafty passion!


 These pop-up dies by Mama Elephant were really simple to use and created such a fun effect!  I love the way this card turned out and I'll be getting some more Little Meow stamps in the future because I really think these kitties need some friends . . . 


For a full list of supplies used for this project, check out the list below.  Don't forget to watch the video to learn all the juicy details and peek at my SSS goodies!  It's been a month since I started my YouTube channel so I'm pretty sure a giveaway needs to happen soon so check back for that!  I've got some extra stamp sets I'm just dying to share with you all!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon! Bye!

  1. Hi Tara. WOW, You have only been making cards for a year? I "found & subscribed" to you when you were a Unity girl and thought your work was amazing! I thought you have been doing this for a long time. Your videos are great as well. I love your card. I just got Gamsol a few months ago and have only just started my Copic collection so I am not real good at either yet. You are very talented as your colouring with Prisma/Gamsol is wonderful! TFS!
