Watercolor World

It’s June and that means graduations and celebrating a new chapter in life and celebrating new adventures. So today I’m sharing some cards that use the Watercolor World (160708) and some fun techniques.

This first card uses a quick and easy technique that adds multiple colors to a stamp. This is great for larger images like this world map image.

Using a Blending Brush or Sponge Dauber each of the colors Gorgeous Grpe, Blueberry Bushel, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red have been added to the image. Breathing on the stamp to reactivate the ink and then stamping. Quick and easy, but wow it make a cool image, right? Next the sentiment has been stamped on a strip of Basic White where the ends were punched using the Happy Labels Pick a Punch (160693). The sentiment has been popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the card front and a few Basic Gray & Smoky Slate Pearls (163416) have been added below. A colorful way to celebrate that next chapter.

And this next card uses Heat Embossing to create a glossy map.

After the map has been stamped onto Smoky Slate Card stock VersaMark has been used to cover the whole panel and Basics Wow! Embossing Powder (165679) poured over the top. Our Heat Tool (129053) was used to heat the embossing powder and create a shinny look. Add your favorite sentient like this one used from the Beside Me stamp set (160780). Then add a bit of ribbon like the XX which adds a bit of sparkle and you have an understated elegant card like this one.

And finally this last card uses our Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393) and simple stamping.

Stamped in Pecan Pie onto the Country Woods Designer Series Paper (163393) there is lots of texture and interest and a bit of Baker’s Twine Essential Pack (155475) added a bit more.

Sale-a-bration’s Softly Sophisticated Bundle

If you love coordinating products you’ll love the Sale-a-bration option for the Softly Sophisticated Bundle which includes a lovely Embossing Folder.

Want to see some cards that use this fun bundle? This first card uses the lovely Pretty Peacock and it’s coordinating Pretty Peacock & gold 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon (162588) along with our Nested Essential Dies (161597).

This color combo is quite striking and the ribbon is gorgeous in person. The catalog just doesn’t do it justice. How about a card done in Bubble Bath and Wild Wheat?

This color combo can be found in our Poetic Expressions Designer Series Paper (162814). The little Happy Labels Pick a Punch (160693) has been used to add a soft edge to the sentiment layer.

And the final card today once again uses the Bubble Bath with another of our In Colors Moody Mauve.

A bit of sponging around the outside edge of the focal point and some embellishments adds a bit of texture.
