Watercolor Galaxy and Triangle Stencil | Simon Says Stamp

Hello friends! Today I created a card using the Gansai Tambi watercolors and some products from Simon Says Stamp.

I taped a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and I used Gansai Tambi watercolors to create a galaxy background. I also used Raven ink from Brutus Monroe to blend along the edges to create a vignette. I added white watercolor paint to an acrylic block and flicked it onto my paper to make the stars.

I taped down the Triangle Blast stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the background and went over it with Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. Once it was dry I trimmed it to 4 x 5.25 and popped it up on an A2 size card base with foam tape.

For the sentiment I picked out the Lucky to Know You die set from Simon Says Stamp and I cut it out of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock three times. I glued the three sentiments together using Gina K Connect glue to create a dimentional sentiment. I then glued that to the center of my card.

For the finishing touches I added a few Raindrop embellishments from Lucy’s Cards.

Easy Watercolor Background Shaker Cards | Brutus Monroe

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing a couple of really fun birthday shaker cards for the Brutus Monroe blog hop!

1.jpg

I started out by creating some colorful watercolor backgrounds using Aqua Pigment paints. I used a technique to make these backgrounds that is so super easy to do, I highly recommend checking out the video so that you can see how it is done!

Once the background were dry I used a large circle die to cut them into two circles. I then took the same die as well as a slightly smaller circle die to make two frames out of white cardstock. I also cut two circles out of some acetate. I glued the acetate circles to the frames to create my shaker windows.

I added some doubled up foam tape around the frame to create my shaker area. I then filled the shaker with Pastel Paradise sequins from Lucy’s Cards as well as clear Micro Pearls from Brutus Monroe. I closed the shakers up with the watercolor backgrounds.

I created two 5 x 5 card bases and glued some Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock to the front. I then glued my shaker circles to the middle of both of the cards.

For the sentiments I used a stamp from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe and embossed them with Alabaster embossing powder on some black cardstock. I popped the sentiments up onto the centers of both cards and went over them with Wink of Stella glitter.

Masked Watercolor Valentine | Simon's February Card Kit

Today I am sharing a card featuring Gansai Tambi watercolors and the stamp set from Simon’s February card kit.

1.jpg

I started by taping a piece of Canson watercolor paper to a board and then added more tape to mask off an area. I then painted over the area still showing with Gansai Tambi watercolors.

3.JPG

Once the painting was done I used a bunch of the stamps from the Love Always stamp set and stamped them across the watercolored area with Versamark ink. I embossed them with Rose Gold embossing powder from Simon Says Stamp.

2.jpg

For the sentiment I picked out the stamp which says “you are my soulmate” and I stamped it with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink right along the bottom edge of the watercolored area.

To finish up the card I used a white gel pen to add some dots to the watercolored strip. I then filled in the outline hearts with Wink of Stella glitter. The last thing I did was add a bunch of different sizes of clear sequins.

Birthday Shaker Card | Mama Elephant

Today I am sharing an adorable birthday card using the Stackable Cuties stamp set from Mama Elephant.

13.jpg

I stamped all of the animals from the stamp set onto Bristol Smooth paper. I colored them in with Arteza markers and then cut them out with the coordinating dies. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the critters.

15.jpg

I used a small circle die to cut nine circles from a panel of white cardstock. I glued one of the animals in each of those windows. I added some acetate to the back and then went around each window with foam tape to make shaker areas.

14.jpg

I added large clear glitter to each shaker area and closed up the whole thing with Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. I glued the shaker panel to a Neenah Desert Storm card base.

16.jpg

I stamped one of the chat bubble sentiments with Simon Says Stamp intense black ink and fussy cut it out. I glued it about the bear on the card so it looks like he is saying “Happy B-day.”

Fuse Tool Shaker Cards | Aqua Pigment Backgrounds

Today I created shaker cards using a Fuse Tool with some awesome (and easy) watercolor backgrounds.

17.jpg

To create the background I added the paint directly to my glass craft mat and then smooshed some Canson watercolor paper into it. I was able to make a ton of background really quickly with this technique and I think they all look really cool.

19.jpg

Next I used my fuse tool to create a pocket around my backgrounds. For the plastic I used some old scrapbooking sleeves I had in my stash. I fused three sides and left one open to add my shaker bits. Once the sequins were inside the pockets I fused up the last side to finish the shaker pocket.

18.jpg

I took the Happy Birthday stamp from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and I heat embossing it with Alabaster embossing powder onto a strip of vellum. I then wrapped the vellum around the shaker pocket and adhered it to the back. I added a second smaller sentiment from Simon’s Tiny Words stamp set below the vellum one.

20.jpg

I adhered both of my shaker pockets to A2 size card bases. To finish them up I added some white sequins which I then filled with Glossy Accents.
