Season’s Givings Blog Hop

Welcome friends! Happy New Year!  I’m so grateful to Latisha Yoast for organizing this fun hop every year for the last 6 years. I finally had the opportunity to come back (it’s been a few years for me) and share some goodness with you this year. I’m thrilled you’re here. I have a little artspiration, an announcement and a super fun giveaway of some of my products, favorite art supply AND some stampy goodness. So let’s get right into it, shall we?

The complete list of blogs on the hop are listed below, so no worries! Enjoy! There are a lot of giveaways going on the blogs, so stop by and comment for a chance to win. 

I believe we all need a little light and positivity in our daily lives. Yes, wouldn’t you agree? And, I believe when we create something with our hands, share it and/or give it away, we are sending vibrations of goodness out into the world. SO GOOD! It’s why Indigojade Art was born and why I am sharing with you today. I hope to bring you joy and light on this first day of 2018!

A Little Artspiration

I paint everyday and share inspiration in my Instagram feed and blog. Some of my work ends up being created for products, art prints, etc. Some, end up in a bin (like the one pictured below) and I use them for other things. I thought it would be fun to share how I craft my joy using my original artwork, papercrafting supplies, dies, stamps, inks and all the artsy pants stuff to create some handmade goodness.

In this project, I created a series of tags for a hostess gift I gave on New Year’s Eve to a dear friend. She loves getting handmade gifts and original art from me, so I decided to do both!

I paint everyday and often have a large stash in this bin of creations.

So I decided to grab this watercolor wreath. It’s perfect for a little tag making adventure!

I placed tag dies by Hero Arts on top of the watercolor wreath and ran them through my Sizzix Big Shot.

I cut a bit of Gina K Premium Cardstock as well. I love how the wreath looks on the tags.

Of course, we need butterflies, right? I inked up the butterfly from the Boho Flowers set from Gina K using two different distress oxide inks. A little spritz and BAM, color magic. I love that Gina’s set have coordinating dies and the butterfly is perfection. I have a little thing for butterflies.

A little more stamping from the Boho Flowers set. Layering and woo to the woot! A tag set for this New Year’s package was born.

Supplies I used:  (These are not affiliate links. I’m sharing them for inspiration) Supplies used: Original watercolor painted wreath from my stash of paintings, Hero Arts Infinity Tag Dies, Prima Watercolors, Gina K Designs Premium Cardstock, Gina K Designs Boho Flowers Stamp Set and Die Set, Inks: Gina K Designs Blue Lagoon and Tim Holtz Oxide Inks

A Little Announcement

I’m super excited to share that I have joined the illustrator team for Gina K Designs. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be sharing my gifts with the stamping and papercrafting world again. It has been a few years since I have worked within the industry and I’m excited to be back helping people craft their joy! I admire Gina Krupsky a great deal and she is a beacon of light and positivity in the crafting world. My first release will be coming out this month! Stay tuned! I’m blooming with excitement!

The card deck comes complete 28 of my original watercolor paintings (double-sided) paired with hand lettered sentiments to dial up the happy. It comes gift-boxed and ready to go for gift giving to a friend, family member, co-worker… or YOURSELF. Perfect for the holiday season or anytime!
