Birthday Wishes and Winner Announced

Hi Everyone,
It’s not often I get to play with my stash because of DT responsibilities. So when I found myself ahead of schedule I decided to play. Today I am sharing a card with a fun background I made. Below you will find the steps and links to products used.

But first things first. The winner for my Blog Giveaway last month is Cynthia Simpson. Congratulations! Please email me your address so I can send you the Lantern Box Die.

  • Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. 
  • Step 2 - Trim Black Cardstock to 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”. Stamp Diagonal Stripes using Versamark Ink. Sprinkle Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it with a heat tool. Adhere to front of card using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
  • Step 3 - Create a background - Adhere Watercolor Paper trimmed to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" on a flat surface using painter's tape. Using a wide paint brush apply water to the entire panel. With a smaller brush add paint drops randomly on top of the panel. I used Gansai Pearl Colors. Let dry. For faster drying process dry it with a heat tool. The panel must be completely dry before moving onto the next step.

  • Step 4 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles to the Watercolor Panel.
  • Step 5 - Stamp Even More Flowers on Watercolor paper using Versamark Ink. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and heat set it with a heat tool. Color using any watercolor medium. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush. Diecut the flowers with matching dies. Place your flowers on the background created to find out where to stamp the sentiment. 
  • Step 6 - Stamp sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink on the watercolor background. Adhere to card using Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. 
  • Step 7 - Adhere the Diecut Flowers using Foam Tape. 
  • Step 8 - Optional - Add random Morning Dew Crystal Nuvo Drops.

This card can be used for any occasion by changing the colors, stamp image and sentiment.
