This stamp set is perfect for little dancers. My daughter absolutely loves dancing, so I can see myself using this a lot in the future! I started by stamping the three little girls onto some Archers Cold Press watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then watercolored the images with a combonation of Prima watercolors and Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Once the paint was dry I added details to the image with Prisnacolor pencils. I also used a white gel pen to add dots to the dress on the girl in the center. I thought the yellow dress could use some sparkle, so I took a gold paint marker and added some dots to the tu-tu and the frill on the front.

I picked one of the sentiments from the set and stamped it on the painting with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I then popped the panel up onto a plum colored card base with foam tape and added a few sequins.

For my card I used the Healing Hugs stamp set. I stamped the floral from the set onto a panel of Cornflower blue cardstock with Gina K’s In the Navy ink. I then colored that in with Prismacolor pencils.

Using the same floral stamp I stamped around the edge of the panel using Versamark ink. I picked out the “Get Well Soon” sentiment which fits perfectly inside the floral wreath. I stamped that with the In the Navy ink and then I stamped it again right on top with Versamark ink. This way I was able to emboss over that sentiment with a clear embossing powder.

I dragged my Versamark ink pad along the edges of the panel and then embossed that with silver embossing powder. I blended some white ink onto the center of the card and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide ink along the edges. Using a clean cloth I wiped away any of that ink that was on the embossed areas.

I popped up that panel onto a 6x6 card base made out of In the Navy cardstock. Next I used a white gel pen to add a small amount of highlights to the flowers. I also took that pen and added little dots in different sizes around the wreath.

To finish up the card I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on the centers of all the flowers to add some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by with me! I hope you have a blast this Stamptember. Happy crafting!

Watercolor Father's Day Card | Colorado Craft Company

Today I am excited to be revealing one of the awesome new sets from Colorado Craft Company’s Lovely Legs series. There are three new sets in the collection and I created a card using the Chillin and Grilling stamp set.

Be sure to check below to see how you can win all three of the new stamp sets!

1.jpg

I stamped the large image in the stamp set onto Canson watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then painted the image using Prima watercolors. After painting I added in some details using colored pencils.

3.jpg

I trimmed the painted image down using my Tonic Trimmer. I then cut a frame out of black cardstock using my Hero Arts nested rectangles die set. I glued the frame on the painted panel.

2.jpg

Next I took a piece of black cardstock and taped the Diagonal Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp over it. I blended over the stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. This creates a nice, subtle background for my card. I adhered the panel to an A2 size card base.

I took the painted panel and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card and instead stamped one inside.

Colorful Butterfly Background | Simon Says Stamp

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card using the Outline Butterflies background stamp from Simon Says Stamps new release.

5.jpg

I stamped the Outline Butterflies background on some Bristol Smooth paper with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then blended over the embossed background with Distress Oxide ink. I used the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Picked Raspberry, and Wilted Violet. I adhered the background panel to an A2 size card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Love You Mama stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on some vellum and embossed it with Alabaster embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I fussy cut that sentiment out and popped it up on the card with foam tape.

6.jpg

I stamped a smaller sentiment on white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. I cut it into a small strip and popped it up above the larger sentiment. Next I used a white Prismacolor pencil to color in the butterflies in the background.

8.jpg

To finish up the card I added some clear sequins. I also used Wink of Stella on the smaller sentiment as well as on some of the butterflies in the background.
