Sending Smiles Across the Miles

Welcome to Butterflys and Bows!

Today I have been playing with a card idea….

Using “Lift Me Up” Stamp set and some watercolouring.

 

IMAG0138

  • For this card I stamped the Balloons onto a circle of watercolour paper with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder.
  • I sprayed the watercolour paper with water and then using an Aqua Painter, I painted the back ground with Soft Sky, Pool Party.
  • The large Balloon I used Peekaboo Peach and Calypso Coral
  • Smaller Balloon is in Sweet Sugar Plum.
  • Added more water to background and added more colour with Smoky Slate and Dapper Denim
  • Then while the background was still wet I added large salt crystals.

“Lift Me Up” can be found in the Occasions Catalogue.

This Stamp Set can also be purchased as part of a Bundle with the Up and Away Thinlits Dies with a 10% discount

Neutrals such as Black, Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Kraft, Sahara Sand and Metallic’s can also be used.

These beautiful soft colours work well together and the Garden Green even though is a strong colour works in well.

I have teamed these colours Sahara Sand which has a slight green tone to the soft neutral colour.

  • The card front is stamped with the Delicate Details from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue in Mint Macaron.
  • The edges sponged in Wisteria Wonder and then sponged on top with the Mint Macaron just to soften the Wisteria Wonder.
  • The card front is adhered to a Garden Green matte and then attached to Card Base .
  • From the Flourish Details Thinlits cut 2 sets of leaves in Garden Green and Mint Macaron, large flower In Wisteria Wonder and a smaller flower in Whisper White.
  • Using the Laying Squares cut our one of the larger scalloped squares in Garden Green.
  • In the Sky Blue cut a smaller square from the Stitched Shapes framelits, in the left top corner stamp “Hello” from the Flourishing Phases Stamp Set.
  • Layer the two squares and attach the two flowers in the bottom right corner and attach Dimenosionals on the back.

As with all of Stampin’ Up! product their Watercolour Pencils coordinate with all their other products. When using these pencils I recommend using Stampin’ Up! Shimmery White Cardstock or Stampin’ Up! Watercolour paper along with their Archival Basic Black or Basic Gray Stamp Pads.

Now this is only an example of what you can purchase…as in the above items I haven’t added a stamp set as there are a few you could choose from in the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.

So with spending this a mount you could chose an item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.- Click on the catalogue image to see the many great products.

Now…my card for this weeks challenge.

I have fallen in love with the Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils that will be available in the coming Occasions Catalogue. Don’t forget to contact me to receive your free copy plus the Sale-A- Bration catalogue.

These Watercolour pencils are in our Stampin’ Up! colours unlike the ones we had a few years back. So they match all our products beautifully, just one of those wonderful things that Stampin’ Up! is known for……………….There co-ordination!

imag1814

The image I have stamped onto Shimmery White cardstock with Memento Ink. The Shimmery white card stock can be used for watercolouring …I have found that you need to let each layer dry a little before adding more colour and blending. As it can still pill a little if the area has been over worked. So I always do a small part at a time then come back and add more colour.

Also sometimes I will use 2-3 colours of pencil in one area before coming in with my Blender Pen…the colours will mix a little and blend in well.

I hope you have enjoyed my little card as much I have in making it.

Contact me to find out more about the Watercolour Pencils..they are a must and will make any watercolour project so much easier to achieve.

Below you will find a list of all the products used, just click on them and it will take you directly to my Stampin’ Up! Store. The only product not shown below are the Watercolour Pencils as they won’t be avilable to purchase until 4th January…so I’m sorry you will have to wait…but it will be worth it!

This is a very interesting Sketch and for a while wasn’t sure what I could do with it.

It’s worth while to go over to their site and have a look at what the design team have come up with.

HERE is the link…even give it ago yourselves would love to see what you come up with.

In my card I have used Flowering Fields Stamps and Designer Series Paper.

The images were stamped in black Memento and coloured in with Stampin’ Write Markers.

Wow!….I’m on a roll!

Wow!…..I’m on a roll!

But it is so easy when you have beautiful stamps and the most amazing papers to use.

A few years back when I was looking for a business to become involved with, I was looking for something different, fresh and up with the times.

And I think Stampin’ Up! have been all that and more…

The people are great , the company is helpful and the product is of a high quality.

I love using these great products….

So back to the beginning of this article….I’m on a roll.

I’m loving these beautiful stamps and coordinating papers from both the Occasional Catalog and the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.
