Happy Friday! I am in LOVE with this stamp set! Though it has one main stamp with a bunch of greetings, it really can be stamped in many different ways. I decided for this card, to make a pretty birthday or wedding card. I played with water colouring using an Aqua Painter and ink. I don’t have them yet (they’re on their way), but, there is also a coordinating set of Dies that take this stamp set even further! 🙂 I’m getting the birthday dies in my order tomorrow.
Granny Apple Green: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
Pool Party: 4″ x 5 1/4″
Flirty Flamingo: 2 1/2″ x 5 1/4″
Watercolor Paper: 3″ x 3 5/8″
- Run the Pool Party cardstock through a die-cut machine with the Parisian Flourish Embossing Folder. Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere to card. (I put the background upside down to give it a more subtle effect)
- Use the dotted stamp to stamp a background on the Flirty Flamingo cardstock using the matching ink.
- Colour the Whisper White Crinkled Ribbon using the Light Pool Party Stampin’ Blend. Wrap around the Flirty Flamingo cardstock and tie in a knot. Use the Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere to the card.
- Stamp the cake stamp using Versamark, add Black Embossing Powder, tap off then heat set using the Heat Tool.
- Press the Pool Party ink pad on to a Stampin’ block and use an Aqua Painter to pick up colour and watercolour the cake. Let dry a bit and do it again with a bit less water. Do the same to colour the flowers and leaves.
- Stamp some areas with the spot stamp using Basic Gray. You can stamp multiple times before re-inking to have different shades. Adhere to card using Tear & Tape Adhesive.
- Stamp the greeting on Watercolor Paper using Basic Gray. Cut out using Paper Snips, then add to the card using Mini Dimensionals. (Tip: move paper when cutting instead of moving the scissors to make the cuts smoother)
