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.

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.

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.

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.

Simple and Clean Card Design | Brutus Monroe Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone! Today I have a quick and simple card design to share featuring some products from Brutus Monroe.

I created this card for the Brutus Monroe blog hop. For today’s hop we all were challenged to create something using a specific color palette. So the first thing I did was try to find cardstock in my stash that matched each color in the palette. Once I had a scrap of cardstock in each color I tried to thing of a Christmas word that I could cut out with the colors. There are five colors in the color scheme, so I picked the work Merry. I used the Square Alphabet Die set to cut one letter out of each color.

I cut very tiny pieces of foam tape in order to pop up each of my letters. I used a T-square ruler to help me place to letters onto a white card base. I like to place the first letter and the last letter first and then the middle letters. This just helps me get the spacing between the letters more even.

I popped my card base into my MISTI and picked out a sentiment to stamp under the word “merry.” I chose a stamp from the new Brutus Monroe stamp of the month stamp set which says “Merry & Bright.” I stamped that using Raven Detail ink.

Next I pulled out the stencil from November’s stencil of the month club. I taped it down over the very bottom of the card, right under the sentiment. I added some Unicorn glitter paste very carefully over the stencil. I smoothed it out as best as I could and then lifted the stencil up. The last thing that I did to finish the card was take my Wink of Stella glitter brush and go over the square letters to make them all sparkly.
