Good Morning! I don’t know about you, but with Christmas just around the corner and so much left to do, I am totally stressed! Plus, I’m visiting my son and his family and they’ll be moving next month, so there’s even more that needs to be done! For these times, the new Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set is perfect for reminders of calmer times. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I found a pretty panel of the new Abstract Beauty specialty designer series paper that will be available in the upcoming January-June 2022 Mini Catalog for the background and I wanted to use a different technique to color the relaxing image from the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set – coloring it with Watercolor Pencils! Here’s how I did that. I first stamped the image on Shimmery White paper using Jet Black Stazon Ink. I colored different sections of the image with the Water Color pencils – Night of Navy for the pants, Coastal Cabana for the blanket, Early Espresso and Cajun Craze for the puppy, Flirty Flamingo for the pillows and cup, Calypso Coral for the sox, Rich Razzleberry for the bed and Crushed Curry, Basic Gray for the book, Daffodil Delight & Cajun Craze for her hair.
After coloring, I used a blender pen to smooth and blend the color in each section. I wiped the excess color from the blender pen with a paper towel before starting the next section to keep the colors from bleeding. I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy mat when finished. I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy the Moment stamp set on the side of a strip of Vellum using Night of navy ink and let it dry – Vellum takes a little longer to dry and you can use your heat tool to speed it up if needed. I adhered the Vellum to the back of the matted art panel after it dried.
I adhered the pretty Abstract Beauty specialty designer series paper to the front of a Just Jade card base with liquid glue and adhered a folded strip of Just Jade gingham ribbon to the front with glue dots where the sentiment would be. I adhered the layered art panel to the card front with dimensionals under the card stock and used a glue dot behind the sentiment.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on the side of a Basic White panel. I trimmed the bottom with a strip of embossed Kraft paper and adhered the panel to the inside of the card with Stampin’ Seal. I finished the card front with a small Gilded Gem to pick up the gold foil accents in the pretty DSP.
I think the Stampin’ Up! In The Moment stamp set will definitely be a favorite. This pretty set and the beautiful Artistic Beauty specialty DSP will be available in the upcoming new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog when it goes live on January 4, 2022. Try using different coloring techniques for your images! It changes things up and keeps stamping fun!
Here’s a picture of the pretty stamp set and the DSP. A note about the Abstract Beauty specialty DSP – it is a new size!! It will come in a 4″ x 6″ size with 48 sheets of 12 different double sided designs, and one side will have touches of gold foil! And it’s so pretty!! Remember the date – January 4, 2022!
