Sale-a-bration’s Watercolor Melon

While it is a rainy winter day here in Georgia there is a taste of spring in the air so I thought I’d share a fun set that will make us all think of those warm summer days that aren’t far off.

Watercolor Melon Stamp Set (Sale-a-bration 162962) is a photopolymer stamp set that makes the two step a breeze. The images have a fun watercolor look giving you a built in shading that makes the melon look real too.

Check out these cards to see what I mean. this first card uses simple stamping to create a fun card. Done in Sweet Sorbet and Garden Green it uses a fun angle for the sentiment.

And while this set is a sentiment set it makes it great for choosing a stamp set like the Perennial Postage Stamp set (162598) to team it up with. And this next card uses the same sweet Sweet Sorbet 1/4″ Ribbon (162558) for a little pop of texture on the watermelon that has been punched out using the Modern Oval Punch (162234)

which makes popping it up like it is on this card a snap! This next card teams up these fun images with the Basic 3D Embossing Folders (Online Exclusives 1611598) for some texture in the background and the Meandering Meadow Designer Series Paper (Online Exclusives 162735).

A pop of shine has been added with the Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels (158130). You’ll love how these rhinestones pick up the colors around them. And our last card uses a fun gingham check in Blueberry Bushel from the Glorious Gingham 6×6 Designer Series Paper (163170) for a summer time feel.

The watermelon uses a simple technique called shadow stamping. The melon was first stamped in Lemon Lime Twist Classic Ink and then again in Garden Green Classic Ink. The second color is just slightly lower than the first image allowing you to see both colors. And the vines use the stamping off method to create two different shades of the Garden Green. Both area great techniques that allow you to use stretch your stamping skills and supplies!

Bright and colorful since it uses our Masterfully Made Designer Series Paper (161192) as a backdrop it also uses the back side of our Softly Stippled Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration 162975) for the animals giving them both color and a textured feel. The Dies allow for the customized “Hi” greeting. Fun, right?

And this next card uses the neutral side of the Just Kiddin’ Designer Series Paper (162828) as a backdrop and to set the color pallet. The cute little animals are simply stamped and then the vine and grass Dies add a bit of bit of texture and color.

Finally the sentiment from the Perennial Postage Bundle (162608) have been used for the sentiment and the Petal Pink & Pretty Peacock Gems (162587) of course add a little shine which never hurts.
