Swirly Bird Sailboat Card – Hand Stamped Sentiments 291

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is an inspirational challenge.

So immediately I thought nautical…
However (and to my shock) I don’t have any nautical stamps!

Although this has since been corrected as I bought the Sea of Textures Bundle yesterday 😉

So I decided to create a watercolor background inspired by the colors and look of the image.  My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and used an Aqua Painter to make it very wet.  I then used the Aqua Painter to pick up ink which I squeezed over the paper.  The tinted water naturally pooled and then I dried it using a Heat Tool.  I did one color at a time so this created different shades of each color.

I did this using Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, and Pool Party ink.  I ran this through the Big Shot in the Seaside embossing folder and then matted it on Night of Navy cardstock.

I created my sailboat using the Swirly Bird stamp set, which I fussy cut out and adhered using Stampin Dimensionals.  I used Night of Navy, Blueberry Bushel, and Pool Party ink.  Behind the sailboat I adhered some burlap ribbon and then I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soiree stamp set in Night of Navy.

Graduation Card

It’s that time of the week for the Mojo Monday challenge.


Tis the season for graduations.  I know I have a few coming up, how about you?

For today’s card I started with a base of Basic Black cardstock.  All of the patterned paper comes from the It’s My Party DSP and was layered over each other in different sizes and one banner.

I layered the black pattern DSP and banner with some vellum and then stamped the 2016 in Sahara Sand from the Number of Years Stamp Set.  The Large Number Framelits perfectly coordinate to punch the numbers exactly.

I added some stars, the smallest ones from the Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack and the bigger ones from the Star Framelits (in the weekly deals this week).
