Watercolor Winter Rose

Y’all, I’m telling ya’! This product suite is fabulous! Don’t miss out, it’s while supplies last. Not only are the Specialty Designer Series Papers elegantly beautiful and easy to create simple cards, tonight I played with the Cling Stamp and watercolor and a simple supply list.

I embossed the Cling Christmas Rose stamp on a piece of Watercolor Paper with Versa Mark and White Embossing Powder. I used the Stamparatus because I find it easier to get good impressions with larger stamps. And, if you “mess up” and miss a spot, you can reink and stamp in exactly the same spot. I used the Aqua Painter and my ink pads to watercolor the image. So much fun to create an individual piece of art like no other. Just let the first layer dry and go back and add dimension however you would like. Not creative? Use the Designer Series Paper for inspiration.

I originally planned to use the dies to cut out the water colored image and add some DSP, but liked the result so much I decided to let it stand on it’s own. The lighter green…Garden instead of Mossy Meadow, gave it more of a winter than Christmas feel to me. I plan on using it for a general note card instead of a Christmas card, but you could easily stamp a Christmas Sentiment from the set and use it that way.

I adhered the pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive. I added a pine cone and pine bough from the stamp set to the bottom corner. The paper measurements are as follows:

  • Main Image 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″
  • Cherry Cobbler 4 5/8″ x 3 5/8″ (just eyeball it)
  • Very Vanilla 5″ x 4″
  • Card Base 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Supplies will be listed at the end of the blog. Click on the image to order online.

Happy Stamp Dabbling!

Feels Like Frost Greetings

This Feels Like Frost Designer Series Paper is beautiful enough to stand on it’s own for some quick and easy stamped cards.

I used the Season’s Greetings design from the Tags, Tags, Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set inked in Night of Navy. I used the accompanying dies cuts to make 3 snowflakes (tag, top left, and inside). I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere them and the flat layers. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise the greeting tag.

I added some sparkle to the card front and tag with Shimmery Crystal Effects. This is a thick, glossy liquid with a very fine glitter incorporated. It’s a little hard to see in the pictures, but is a nice addition to the snow dots on the DSP and to accent the swirls on the tag.

The supplies are listed below. If you have any questions I would love to hear from you in the comments below.
