Happy Friday! Today's card is a pretty card that features Stampin' Up's 2017 Occasions Catalogue beauty the Beautiful You stamp set. I love the ladies and the sentiments in this stamp set and coloring the images is great therapy too.
How To Make This Hand Stamped Card:
This card starts with a cardbase of Calypso Coral cardstock. I used the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss the cardfront. I love this folder- just something about butterflies! 🙂
Die cut the Shimmery White cardstock with the Stitched Shape Framelits square.
Stamp the image with Black Stazon Ink on the Shimmery White cardstock square and color in with Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen or Aqua Painters and ink from stamp pads or Stampin' Write markers. I will point out my total mistake on this card- and admittedly I just didn't feel like changing it… but I tried to come up with a color blend with the watercolor pencils that would make a good light skin tone. It didn't work very well on this one 🙂 Back to the drawing board on that idea! Next time I would just go for a darker skin tone, leave it uncolored or use the Stampin' Write markers to color the skin.
With the Black Stazon ink the sentiment was stamped on a strip of Window Sheet and allowed to dry thoroughly. Before adhering to the card front, some Natural Ribbon with Silver was tied around one end.
All the pieces were adhered to the cardfront, starting with the Metallic Silver Foil Doily first, then the stamped image and the Window Sheet sentiment. With the clear Window Sheet, you want to make sure that the Mini Glue Dots are hidden, so a few were used behind the ribbon and then in the left corner where the embellishment will be added.
As that final touch, a Falling In Love Embellishment was added with the Mini Glue Dots.
