Say Goodbye to Watercolor Wash

When I first saw the Watercolor Wash stamp in the catalog I had to have it.   I LOVE the look of a watercolor wash but I’m not very good at doing it.  For this card I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire (LOVE HER!), she uses rainbow colors on all sorts of things and I thought it would look good on the Watercolor Wash stamp.  For both cards I used the following Stampin’ Write Markers: Rose Red, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, and Elegant Eggplant.  All of these colors except Daffodil Delight are retiring.

For the first card, I added the color to the Watercolor Wash stamp using the markers and then I sprayed it a few times with water before stamping.

For the second card, I added the color to the Watercolor Wash stamp using the markers and then I sprayed the paper a few times with water before stamping.

I love how “smooshed” the second card is!  The Happy Birthday was done using Versamark and black embossing powder which is coming back in the new catalog!

Say Goodbye to Watercolor Words

Yesterday was my anniversary and I made this card for my hubby.  I thought the images kind of looked like they were carved into the tree.  I used my Stamparatus so I could double heat emboss the image.  I stamped it once with Versamark and heat embossed with copper, then I stamped it again and repeated the heat embossing.

Say Goodbye to Garden in Bloom

If you have seen the new Share What You Love Designer Series Paper, you may want to pick up this stamp set before it’s gone.   One of the patterns in that pack looks to have this flower on it.  I was inspired to create a similar patterned paper but with Wisteria Wonder instead of Mint Macaron since you can’t buy that yet.  Funny thing, this might be the first time I’ve even used Wisteria Wonder.  All of the stamping is either embossed with clear or silver embossing powder.

That silver layer isn’t silver foil, I made it.  I used Versamark around the edges and added silver embossing powder.  I did the same on the label but thinner.  It looks gold in the picture but it’s silver.
