Hello there! I hope you are staying safe and healthy- while there are lots of uncertainties, crafting can be a great source of relaxation and self-care. Make sure to take some time to take care of yourself and carve out a “me-time” when you are staying indoors.

Today’s blog post and a video tutorial are special in a couple of different ways. First, this is my longest video tutorial yet! I usually try to keep my videos simple and short, but I wanted to share a lot of things with you today, so hope you do not mind! If you want to see more long progress videos, let me know and I am happy to plan those for the future!

The second reason for this blog post being special is because Altenew is celebrating its birthday this week! Altenew turns 6 this month and we are doing some fun blog hops, giveaways, and inspiration sharing. I think it’s a welcome distraction to the current situation that everyone is going through. I am definitely sending you lots and lots of hugs!

This card was truly a relaxing, therapeutic project to work on. It took me a while, I won’t lie, but it was a great way to de-stress and relax. Watercoloring is just so much fun to do and it was a great way to break out my brand-new watercolor pan set and use it along with my new favorite stamp set.

Today’s video tutorial is packed with step-by-step progress and share my way of creating a quick watercolor swatch, it is a long one, so grab a tea or coffee and relax while following me along!

Watch the tutorial below or HERE on Youtube


I started with watercolor swatch – I do this for any new sets so I can understand the color ranges better before working on any projects:

And below are more project photos from today’s tutorial:

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and project!

Like I said, lots of them! Happy anniversary to Altenew, I have loved watching the company grow and their products are some of my absolute faves. Wishing them many more successful years!

  164. Hi from Dacula Georgia. Your card is beautiful. The flower itself is gorgeous but you really brought it to life with the differences in color. Thank you for the video.

  165. Hi from Fairfax, VA, USA. I have to admit that I am not a water colorist! I have the watercolor set, the bigger one from Altenew, but have not cracked it open yet. I am scared to! Therefore I don’t have a favorite, but if I were to try one (and I promise I will!!!,) it would be to try the Amazing You stamp set. I enjoyed your watercolors and the corresponding palette you created for the pan of paints. 🙂

  166. Hi from Houston! Beautiful cards. I need to pull my watercolors out more often. The results you are getting with Altenew’s watercolors is amazing.
