Fall Sunset Watercoloring with Viviva Colorsheets and Lawn Fawn

Hi crafty friends, today I am back with a cute watercolor project what I created with the most portable watercolor sheets ever! Rohitha, the owner of Viviva colorsheets, was super kind and sent me their handmade Single Set Watercolorsheets to try out! 


I was super excited when I received it! I love its design and look, even the envelope was amazing and handcrafted! 


As you can see on the photos, this watercolor set is super thin and portable. My type Includes 16 ultra-vibrant colors. This watercolor palette is the perfect choice to bring with you to the crop events, or when you are on trip, and you want to take with you some coloring! Trust me it’s ultra super thin! ๐Ÿ˜Š 



Between the shades you can find special water resistant sheets, so your colors will be divided even when they are wet! Under the watercolor paint, you can find a frame which is color coded. If you want you can make your swatch in that frame and you are ready to go! You can use them everywhere you like! ๐Ÿ˜Š 


I decided to show you how vibrant it is, so I pulled my watercolor sketchbook and I painted a little fall with Lawn Fawn stamps. But before I started to color I swatched all the colors. Girl!!! You need only a bit of that paint, it’s oh so pigmented! 


For the stamping I have used the Jump for Joy and the A bug Deal stamp sets by Lawn Fawn. For the stamping I have used the Crunchy Leaf inkpad. After a quick heat set, I wet the watercolor paper and started to build up the scene. 


I wanted to create a nice fall sunset, and with these colors it was really easy. When the background was done, I stamped the leaves from the Jump for Joy stamp set to another watercolor paper and colored the leaves with the randomly picked colors. 


My top favorite colors are the “Viridian”, the “Magenta”, the “Light Green” and the “Chrome Yellow”. All the shades are fantastic, but these are the holy grail for me! ๐Ÿ˜Š 


I am absolutely in love with this palette and this extra thin friend is going to my small travel bag! The Viviva colorseets has amazing and rich shades and it fits to your penholder as well. If you have never tried it consider to get one for yourself and it’s a perfect Christmas present for a crafty friend as well. ๐Ÿ˜Š 




Thank you so much for reading my post, I hope you have enjoyed it, if you have any questions feel free to ask in a comment or check the Handmade Viviva Colorsheets site!

Heffy Friends Blog Hop

Hello lovelies and welcome to the Heffy Doodle Friends Blog Hop. Today I am showing you a cute pony card inspiration with the newest release! I hope you will enjoy it. 


As always, you can find the supply list below the post. Now let see the cardmaking and also don't forget to comment on my blog, because there is a giveaway too! Yaaay! 


I started the cardmaking with ink blending. I have used lighter Distress Oxide Inkpads first in rainbow order in the following shades: Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac. When it was done, I put on my ink blending through the Rays The Roof stencil and created darker lines through the stencil. I have used the Peacock Fathers, Moved Lawn, Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inkpads. 


When the ink blending was done, I run the blended cardstock with the Imperial Stitched Rectangles Dies (the second largest) through my Die-cut machine. After that I splattered on it with white and gold Gansai Tambi Watercolors and let it dry. 


The next step was the stamping and coloring. I have used the Fluffy Puffy Unicorns Stamps and Dies. Aren’t they adorable? I have a few more inspirations with these cutenesses. I will show them in the end of my post. I stamped them with my MISTI and this time I colored them as Ponies from the My Little Pony movies. 


For the coloring I have used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers. The used colors for Ponies are: CT1, CT3, CT4, LY1, GY1, GY2, GY3, BO1, BO2, DR2, MG3, MG1, PP4, PP2, PP1, PV3, HB1, LV1, LV3, PL3, TB5, TV4, TB2, TB1, IB1, IG2, BGR4, DG3, LG4, LG3, Blender. 


When the coloring was done, I adhered the Ponies to the background with 3D foam adhesive. Next I run the Starry Rainbow Die, the Stitched Alphabetter Dies and the “To my” Word Heffy Cuts through my Die-cut machine with white cardstock. I created the sentiment then embellished with the stars from the Starry Rainbow die, then styled and put my card together. 


I hope you have enjoyed my inspirations for today, see you next time and good luck in the giveaway! Mona

Papercrafters Unite Against Racism Hop

Hi crafty friends! It's Mona here, today I am participating in a very special blog and Instagram hop, the Papercrafters Unite Against Racism Blog Hop! I am super excited that you are here and reading my post, because this message is really important! 


The goal of this hop is to come together to stand behind our crafty sisters and brothers of colour not just in the art industry, but also to show our support in the never-ending fight for equality all over the world. Feel free to check Justine Hovey's blog for more information.


Today I created a simple, but for me a really cute friendship card, where these cute bunnies and bears from Mama Elephant Stamps are supporting each other. I started the cardmaking with Stamping and Masking. The used supplies you can find below the post.


I stamped the bunny image from the Mama Elephant - Fuzzy Hug Stamp Set with Dark Chocolate Hybrid Ink Pad in my MISTI. I created a mask with Masking Magic, and fussycut it. When it was done I stamped the hugging bears image as well and added heat set to my images. Next, I started the coloring with my Copic Markers. I created different skin tones for each critter. The used copic markers you can find on the following image. When the coloring was done, I added white highlights with Signo Uniball White Pen and fussycut the finished image.


The next step was the background. I made a gradient inkblending with Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Hickory Smoke and Frayed Burlap Distress Oxides. After the inkblending I splattered on in with blue and white watercolor and let it dry. 


In the end I die-cut the Hugs sentiment by Heffy Doodle from white and pink cardstock as well as the Scalloped Rectangle Frames by Lawn Fawn and put my card together with 3D adhesives.


I hope you have enjoyed my post, now it's time to hop to your next stop to the talented Natasha Davies.

Lawn Fawn Fans Spring YouTube Hop | Video tutorial



Hi crafty friends! I am super excited that I am a part of the Lawn Fawn Fans Spring YouTube Hop! For this reason, I thought that I am going to show you something special. I decided to play with the oldie but goldie Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I hope you will enjoy this. In this hop there is a giveaway too, you can find more info about it in my post. 


I started the cardmaking with stamping and my beloved Lawn Fawn Jet Black inkpad. As I told, today I am showing you how these cute chicks became birds (precisely a Eurasian Blue tit). These are really sweet and cute birds and I really love to watch them in the winter and spring. Because the spring is here, I will put these birds to a Sakura tree, what I will create with the branches and leaves from A Bug Deal stamp set and I will add some bugs as well. The sakura tree needs flowers too so I searched for them in my stash and I picked the small Florals from the Stinkin Cute and I Love You (caliptus) small sets. When the stamping was done, I started to create the Eurasian Blue-tits. You can find the full process in my video here. I really hope you will enjoy that. :) 


If you are interested how I colored the leaves and the branches, feel free to check out my “Light Up Your Card” video where I am coloring leaves and branches in real time. To the background I decided to make a nice blue gradient sky with Distress Oxide inks. I have used the Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxides on a Neenah Solar White Cardstock


Once it was ready, I adhered it to my card base. Next, I run the Lawn Fawndamentals heavy weight cardstock in “Gold Rush” Color with the Reverse Scalloped Rectangle Windows through my die-cut machine. I picked the second largest one. 



In the end I put my card together and it was ready!

Video: Copic coloring techniques with Heffy Doodle

Hi lovelies, today I have a video tutorial for you, where I am going to show you how I colored these cute hedgehogs from the Quill You Be Mine Stamp Set by Heffy Doodle in real time with Copic Markers. As always you can find the used supplies below the post. 


I started the cardmaking process with the card base. I decided to use this piece from the Fancy Nancy Frames Dies. Run it three times through my Die-cut machine with a 5.5" by 4.25" Neenah Solar white cardstock. When it was done, I picked the Steady Heart stencil, placed it on my die-cutting plate, put on it the prepared card front, put on it the rubber embossing mat and plate and run it through the die-cut machine. Once It was done, I got a beautiful heart patterned dry embossed card front.


Next I am going to use the Quill You Be Mine? Stamp set. These Hedgies are fabulous and I am going to show you, how I will color them. For the stamping I have used Jet Black by Lawn Fawn. Before the coloring, I gave a quick heat set to my images. This will prevent the ink smearing. When it was done, I started the coloring process, be sure to check the video tutorial



When the coloring was done, I added white highlights with Signo Uniball White Pen and let the images dry. For the background I have used the Cloudy Skies Stencil and I made a quick ink blending through it. I have used the Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean to create nice and fluffy skies.


Next, I run a green cardstock through the Die-cut machine with the Grassy Lass Border Dies, and made an ink blending on it too. This time I have used the Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. After this, I stamped the sentiments with watermark ink to the colored cardstock, then I heat embossed with white embossing powder. In the end I put my card together.



I hope you have enjoyed my project for today, be sure to check the video for the full tutorial with the extra tips and tricks. As always, you can find the used supplies below and if you have any questions feel free to ask in a comment. See you next time, have an amazing day, Mona
