Sampling Watercolors and... a Craft Event!

Hello friends!
I am popping in to share my experiment with the Daniel Smith Paint samples.
They are pretty popular and are now in stock over SSS.

from: Simon Says Stamp

The first time I tried Daniel Smith Watercolor, I immediately love the colors! They are so rich and creamy... The first color sample was from part of the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit.
 When Simon Says Stamp comes up with two sample sets, I was eager to try them.
You can see the entire Daniel Smith watercolor collection here.

just for you at Christmas

I used Bristol Paper for this purpose. First, I had fun coloring the Christmas lights and even did some water-color stamping with the trees. After all that, I was not sure what to do with the paper...


Then.....the Snowmen came to the rescue! 😁

This set is full of cute images and the sentiments are awesome. 
just for you-001

I love using Bazzill Vellumfor heat-embossing. All you need to do is to ink up the image in Versamark and add SSS Clear Embossing Powder and heat emboss....that's it!
I sprinkled a few of these...

I am doing an Altenew Make and Take at ScrapFest in Mississauga( near Toronto) this Saturday  (details here). I am excited to represent Altenew at this creative event, so I have lots of prep work to do, as you can imagine....
This event starts today and Saturday is the last day and I will be there from 10am till 4pm.
It would be awesome if you are able to see me in action....
Thanks to the generosity of Altenew, I also have lots of giveaway (wish me luck!!)😍
Thanks for stopping by!
