Hand-cut Embossed Cardstock Video aka How to use Watercolour Pencils!

Hello, Crafters.

Today's video shows the card I made using my un-named
 technique that I've been sharing with you  this week. 

It's still un-named except to say Hand-cut Embossed Cardstock 
which is a bit long-winded, and doesn't really describe it properly! 
I decided on calling the video HOW TO....using Watercolour Pencils! 
Please let me know if you have any suggestions for a
 name for this technique.

 I think the Hexagon Dynamic Embossing Folder lends itself to
 the technique the best, and out of the two cards I've made, 
I definitely prefer the Coastal Cabana card! 
One of the reasons I've used Watercolour Pencils is because 
Stampin' Up! will be releasing a Limited Edition Stamp Set, plus 
co-ordinating dies which be available during the whole of August.

 Also available during August will be Assortment 2 of Watercolour
 Pencils, which may be made available again at a future date. 
Although I have bought the bundle, I haven't had much of a 
chance to play with it as I've been so focussed on getting 
myself ready for the Incentive Trip. 

To make up for this, I'm hoping that I'll be able to share
 projects made by other demos who have been able to play. 
  Today is the last day before Alaska, and all my swaps are 
done, apart from having a list of ingredients and being put
 into cello bags, but that won't take long. 

The last thing for me to do is one more video, and at the 
moment, I don't have any idea of what the project will be! 

This will be my last regular planned blog until after my trip, 
but I'm hoping to pop in most days for a quick hello and an
 update about where I am, and what's been happening. ☺
Videos will be every Wednesday and Sunday as normal.
 Until next time, happy crafting.



  1. Great job as always Jan - I also perfer the Coastal Cabana card, as it is more matchy matchy.


    1. Many thanks, Joanie. I agree! I prefer a colour rather than white..............which probably is the same as saying it makes it more matchy matchy! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB
