  1. How adorable!!! Love the background! And all of the little kids and animals are so cute! And the sayings that go with them? Just awesome. I love WPlus9 stamps, Dawn does a great job designing her stamps! Love all four cards, but the one with the cat and the broken leg has to be my favorite and I think it’s more the saying, LOL!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Fantastic cards and technique. I tend to want to cover the entire piece of cardstock when smooshing, need to remember to let some of the paper show – fantastic.

  3. Ink smooshing is a fun technique to try if you are just getting started with the water paint look. Thanks for an excellent how to video, Kelly.

  4. This is a great card! I love your background. So want to try the liquid watercolors. I love my alcohol inks and can’t wait to try these and figure out which ones to use when!

  5. I find watercoloring a bit daunting and I always want to go for the perfect stroke, but this design shows you don’t have to make it neat to be beautiful

  6. Oh Kelly, LOVE these, so ADORABLE!! Love the smooshing and the watercoloring and the color combos. So much I love about these, I really love the tags on the cards, so cute, hone run girl !!!!

  7. Such great cards! I love ink smooshing, but haven’t actually used acetate to transfer from the craft mat – love the different look it creates and how “intentional” the pattern can be this way.

  8. I have to try not to cover the whole card with my smooshing!! Great technique though!! Adorable cards and images!

  9. I enjoyed both videos. You had me laughing with the hot pink overalls, I had a pair of hot pink velvet bell bottoms, I actually picked out the material and made them. Yikes!

  10. I’ve seen this smooshing technique before, but never tried it. I wasn’t happy using an acrylic block because of the edges, but I see how different it is to use the pliable acetate instead–gonna give it a try!

  11. These cards are so delightful, the colors so cheerful. Thanks for sharing them and the videos that are always so helpful.

  12. Love the splashes of color for the background.
    So free and easy and pretty.
    Cute cards.
    thanks for sharing

  13. Thanks for the great coloring tutorial! I always learn something new when I watch your videos. Those backgrounds are great, too!

  14. Seriously adorable cards Kelly. Great colouring on the pups and kids and one of these days…..I am going to ‘smoosh’! LOL

  15. SUCH ADORABLE stamps and cards! Ive not yet tried ink smoothing but Kelly’s technique seems to be the easiest one to follow and I love that it seems to offer me more control of the smoothing part.

  16. Everything you do, I have a gut reaction of “I want to try that!” (Think Liz Lemon “I want to go to there!”) I love seeing you create, and I really appreciate all the time you take to explain what you’re doing. You’ve taught me so much because you take the time to do that and not skip over the “obvious” parts.

    PS I realize this the linguist in me, but I think all good crafting videos involve a discussion of grammar and how one pronounces things.
