Stampin’ Up! Count My Blessings

I am so excited to share today’s card.

For two reasons…

  1. I’m not a huge fussy colorer (yes, my new term).  I usually shy away from watercoloring, but I did a lot of coloring on this card and I love how it came out.
  2. I love the sentiments in the Count My Blessings stamp set.  It’s a beautiful font and I’m always looking for a good “thinking of you.”  You can turn this sentiment to fit any occasion.  Thinking of you…on your birthday.  Thinking of you…get well soon.  Thinking of you…congratulations.  You get the idea.

My card today starts off with a panel of White Shimmery cardstock.  I used to always watercolor on Watercolor Paper, but wanted to try this beautiful Shimmery cardstock and sure enough – it works great!!  And it really does have a little shimmer to it.

I stamped the one image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Archival Black ink a bunch of times on the White Shimmery cardstock.  I then took an Aqua Painter and Crushed Curry, Peekaboo Peach, Pumpkin Pie, and Early Espresso inks to color the leaves in.

I mounted this on Gold cardstock and then wound a piece of Crushed Curry Ribbon around it.  I tied a Linen Thread bow towards the one side and then mounted this on a Pumpkin Pie card.

I then stamped the other flower image from the Count My Blessings stamp set in Early Espresso ink (stamping off twice first) onto another piece of Shimmery cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and mounted it on a scalloped oval in Gold cardstock that was cut out using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

Enjoy!

My card today was inspired by challenges this week at Global Design Project and Stamp, Ink, Paper.
