So In Love Valentine or Anniversary Card or Just Because


The card I have to show you today uses one of the new stamp sets from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue, the So In Love stamp set. This is such a pretty stamp set with lovely fonts for the sentiment stamps including in the set which are perfect for Valentine cards, Anniversary cards, wedding cards or just because 🙂

How To Make It:

This card starts with a base of Whisper White Thick cardstock. Then, on a layer of Shimmery White cardstock I layed down a watercolor layer of Soft Sky ink with an Aqua Painter.

Tip:  To watercolor with Stampin Up ink pads, press the lid of the ink pad into the ink to get a pool of color to watercolor with, then dip the Aqua Painter filled with water into the pool of color.

Once that was dry, I stamped the flowers from the So In Love stamp set with Archival Basic Black ink. I heat set the ink with the Heat Tool to ensure it did not smudge when I did the next step.

Then I watercolored the flowers with Flirty Flamingo ink not worrying about staying inside the lines, coloring a little darker in the areas I wanted some shadowing. That was dryed again with the Heat Tool.

Once the watercoloring was completely dry I stamped the leaves from the So In Love stamp set with Emerald Envy ink and stamped the sentiment with the Basic Black ink. The stamped layer was adhered to the card base.

I used the Clear Wink of Stella to add some shimmer to center and edges of the watercolored flowers.

As a final touch, I tied a bow out of the Emerald Envy 1/8” Taffetta Ribbon leaving a long 'tail' on the bow and used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the watercolored layer.
