YouTube Hop and Give Aways

Hi card making friends.  Today I’m excited to be involved with a YouTube Hop and Give Aways to celebrate Canada Day.  I’m joining a group of Crafty Canadian YouTubers and we’re celebrating this special day by featuring Canadian craft products, shops and publications who have generously sponsored today’s event with over $1000 in prizes!  After you’ve finished watching my video, please leave a comment (on my YouTube channel), for your chance to win, and then click on the link in the description below for the next person in the hop.

The more you comment, the higher your chances of winning. (Please indicate if you are in Canada or elsewhere as a few prizes are restricted to Canadian addresses only.)  All the giveaway details are on Emily’s blog.

Comments close at 11:59pm EST on Friday, July 15, 2022 and all winners will be announced on Friday, July 22, 2022.

My Sponsor – Studio Katia

Also, I’m very excited about my sponsor today, Studio Katia.  I love their products, especially their embellishments and embellishment wand which you see in most of my videos.  Today’s stamp set is Darling Freesia with the coordinating die and on my Slimline Card, I used their Dotted Slimline Set 3 Die Set.

I have linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. If you find value in my posts and free PDF downloads, you can support my artistic journey by using the Compensated affiliate links at no cost to you.  As always, I appreciate your support.

YouTube Hop and Give Aways – Darling Freesia Cards:

I had a ton of fun with this stamp and die set.  It’s beautiful to color and with the smaller image, doesn’t take long at all.  It only took a few minutes to color 6 of the images, then create two cards to share with you.

Video Content:

First, a short lesson on how I like to copic color.  I use three markers for each color and walk you through coloring with each color combo.

Next, at 6:24 in the video, I create two backgrounds using Lindy’s Magicals Powders.  These beautiful powders have mica in them, so they really glimmer.

Finally, I put the cards together and embellish them with some pretty pearls from Studio Katia.

I won’t go into a lot of cardmaking details in this post as I share that in the video.  Plus I have a PDF download for each card with the instructions, measurements and supply list.

Next, watch the video on how to create the background.

Finally, adding the sentiments and embellishments.

  1. Love your cards, as always. I did purchase some Lindy’s MP, still learning & playing. And I finally got a SK embellishment wand- it makes life so much easier!

  2. Stunning cards Sandi – I don’t know which one I love the most, they are both so pretty and both beautifully designed. I may need to get some Lindy’s powders, I’m hearing a lot about them and they look fabulous. I also have the embellishment wand and love it!
