Good Morning! Two weeks ago I made a card with the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle in my Sunday Afternoon Facebook Live and I have another one today. Today’s card is a much cleaner design but still colorful and with texture! You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I taped a panel of watercolor paper to my work mat with painters tape, securing it all around. I used my thick water painter to wet the paper and then add Pool Party ink to give it a watercolor wash. I’m not a watercolor painter, so I tried to start small by just doing a watercolor wash. After it dried I removed the tape and wanted more texture, so I embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to a Just Jade mat with liquid glue and then to a Crumb Cake card base with dimensionals.
I cut a Pale Papaya panel of the pretty 2021-2022 In Color Shimmer vellum with the palm die cut from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered bundle. I cut the detailed leaf die from Just Jade and adhered them to the card front with glue dots.
I stamped a panel of Crumb Cake with the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered cling stamp set in Versamark Ink. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heat set the powder until shiny and cut the label out with the Messages die. I adhered a folded length of Just Jade metallic ribbon and some gold trim to the card front and adhered the label over it with dimensionals. I finished with three brushed gold dots.
For the inside of the card, I inked up the large leaf from the Stampin’ Up! Artfully Layered stamp set with Just Jade and stamped off twice before stamping in the corner of a Basic White panel. I inked up the script stamp and stamped off before stamping over the leaf – I did this a couple of times. I adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
It’s fun to try out different coloring techniques such as water coloring. I’m inspired by all the pretty designer series papers, and starting easy with a color wash is perfect, especially when there are bold die cuts that you can use. And touches of gold are always a perfect way to step up a card!
Join me for a Facebook Live this Afternoon!
I’m planning to go live on my Facebook Page at 1:00 ET this afternoon to make a card with the Seascape bundle. Look forward to seeing you then!
