Stampin’ Up! By The Dock Watercolor Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Coastal Cabana cardstock.

I took a panel of Watercolor Paper and generously applied water using an Aqua Painter.  I added one layer of Coastal Cabana ink to it using the Aqua Painter, dried it with the Heat Tool, wet the paper again, and added more color.

By adding color, drying it, and adding more color, you get a nice layered look of color.

I then offset a panel of Soft Suede cardstock underneath it.

I then stamped the dock and birds in Soft Suede ink and boat in Early Espresso ink on Watercolor Paper.  I used my Aqua Painter, not too wet, to pull color out from the stamped image.  I cut these out using the coordinating Dockside Dies.

I also added a little Daffodil Delight ink to the bellies of the birds.

I then stamped the sentiment from the By The Dock Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink on a Crumb Cake banner.  I adhered all the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday To You For You Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a new color challenge for you.

The colors are so fun and bright and we sure hope you’ll play along!!

My card starts off with Mint Macaron cardstock which I embossed using the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder.

Next I used the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut out a scalloped rectangle from Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped the image from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Memento Black and colored the cake stand in using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the same image on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock and colored it in using Lovely Lipstick (flowers), Mint Macaron (leaves), and Ivory (cake) Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut this out and adhered it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Gorgeous Grape cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  I cut it out with the same Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Merry Moose Birthday Card

Today I’m sharing a card I made at my October stamp class.

It uses the Merry Moose Stamp Set and the masking technique to take a Christmas card and make it a birthday card.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I took a panel of Mossy Meadow cardstock, embossed it using the Pinewood Plans Embossing Folder, and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

I cut out a Whisper White circle using the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the tree on it in Mossy Meadow ink (stamping off first).  I covered the “Christmas” on the sentiment stamp from the Merry Moose Stamp Set with washi tape.  I inked it up with Cherry Cobbler ink, removed the washi tape, and stamped it on the circle.

I cut out the “birthday” from the Well Written Dies from Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Next I stamped the outline of the moose in Soft Suede ink and the inside image in Crumb Cake ink.  I cut it out using the Moose Punch.  I stamped the scarf in Cherry Cobbler ink and fussy cut it out.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Rework Layout Harvest Hellos

A few weeks ago I made a Halloween card using the Harvest Hellos Bundle.

I took the same sketch and the stamp set and created a new card for you today.

My card starts off with Crumb Cake cardstock which I embossed using the Tin Tile Embossing Folder.

I then took a square of Cajun Craze cardstock and stamped the pumpkin, stem, and curl on it in Cajun Craze ink.  Underneath it I adhered a Mossy Meadow square.

I stamped the sentiment in Cajun Craze ink on a narrow panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the pumpkin in Cajun Craze, leaf in Mossy Meadow, and stem in Crumb Cake ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored them in with the same color Stampin’ Blends Marker.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Simple Painted Harvest Card

I love the Painted Harvest Stamp Set.

It’s one I haven’t used in a bit, but it’s sweet and makes simple cards beautiful.

My card starts off with Mango Melody cardstock which I layered with a Mango Melody pattern from the Brights Designer Series Paper.

Next I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and first stamped the larger floral image from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight ink.  Over that I stamped the smaller floral image in Mango Melody ink and the center in Soft Suede ink.

I covered the petals with a piece of computer paper and stamped the leaves in Garden Green ink.  I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink and matted it on Soft Suede cardstock.

Enjoy!
