Delicate Daisy Garden

Don’t you just love a stamp set that is all in one and can make such an impact on your finished project? I fell in love with the Daisy Garden background stamp when I saw the sneak peek of the Annual Catalog! And it coordinates well with our daisy punches and the Daisy Lane stamp set perfectly! Just imagine all the cards, pages, and other creative projects you can dream up!

This card was simple to make, it just took a little bit to color with the Watercolor Pencil Assortment. It was soooo worth it too! I first stamped the daisies on the 4″x 5 1/4″ Smoky Slate piece using Basic Gray ink. Then I took out the Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive watercolor pencils and colored the images. I will tell you these are my favorite watercolor pencils! They blend and make gorgeous watercolor wash backgrounds! You have to have both assortments in your stash!

To make the image look more like a watercolor, I used the Blender Pens to blend the colors on the images. I used a pair of Paper Snips to rough the edges of the cardstock. The sentiment was cut out using the very handy Dual Oval punch! I chose a Birthday sentiment from another set and tied the Whisper White crinkle ribbon around the card mat before adhering it to the Basic Gray card base. (5 1/2″x 8 1/2″) . The finishing touch was using my Basic Black Dark Blend and tapping it on my Bone Folder to create the splatter! Such a fun card to make and simple enough to make several!

Sweet Sunflowers

Who loves sunflowers?? They just make me smile and brightens my day! I have already made 3 projects using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (154065) from the new Annual Catalog! I saw a few samples cruising Pinterest where people used their water color pencils to color the sunflower. This is what I came up with and I included the new Misty Moonlight In Color!

I used the Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, and Cajun Craze Watercolor Pencils to color the sunflower. Next, I followed it with a Blender Pen-but just lightly. I didn’t want too much blending. I liked the more crisp color changes in the petals. The strip of DSP is from the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 DSP pack. Then I stamped tone on tone with Misty Moonlight using the smaller sunflower stamp. The leaves are stamped with Just Jade and all the shapes were cut out using the Sunflowers Dies.

To finish off the card I tousled some Linen Thread behind the sunflower, used Wink of Stella on the center of the flower, and I added the sentiment.

Colorful Seasons-Fall

watermarked6(2018-08-08-1624)

During the month of August, you can purchase this versatile Blended Seasons bundle!  The stamp set covers fall, Christmas, wedding, and floral images great for any occasion!  Plus, the Stitched Seasons Framelits are a must have for cutting out sentiments or adding that extra dimension to your project!  To sweeten this deal, Stampin’ Up! added NEW Watercolor Pencil colors too! This whole offering is great for scrapbooking too!

There are 3 different sizes of stitched labels that nestle inside one another.  The best part is that the die cuts a stitched outline on both the cut out and the negative!  This alone doubles your value creating a frame to tuck in an image or a sentiment.  That is what I wanted to showcase with my card today!

My inspiration came from a sample that Stampin’ Up! posted for this bundle.  I first off set the smallest of the label framelits and cut out a section of Crumb Cake for the card base. (and kept the cut out for another card).  Then, I stamped the leaves in a random pattern using Early Espresso ink.  Next, I used various colors from both Watercolor Pencils (assortments 1 & 2) to make fall color leaves. (Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Old Olive) I used a Blender Pen to blend the colors together for a more natural look.  I LOVE these watercolor pencils!  They blend so easily with blender pens or water.  Plus, they look great with out using any blending tools!

I cut out 2 Copper Foil leaves and used a bow of Copper Trim.  The sentiment was stamped with Early Espresso as well!
