Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Welcome to my blog and welcome to the weekend! I am really excited because I am leaving tomorrow to begin my vacation / stamping getaway! While basking in the beauty of Door County Wisconsin, we will also be catching up on some stamping (I did get a few items from the new catalog pre-order … I love being a demonstrator!)
Speaking of getaways … Today’s card share comes from my 2016 Annual Spring Stamping Retreat. It was one of several masculine cards that we made. The minute I saw the “Into the Meadow” stamp set, I knew I had to have it. We will be combing a fancy fold with the watercoloring technique for a truly stunning card.
Don’t you just love it? Although I didn’t have time on today’s blog for a full tutorial on this card, I will post one in the near future for you.
I stamped my image in StazOn onto the Thick Whisper White cardstock (you may use the watercolor paper, but we did not for this project). I used the Aqua Painters and the ink refills *colors listed below, to simply watercolor my images. Stampin’ Up! makes me look like an artist!
The “You Are Totally Awesome” comes from the stamp set “Grateful Bunch” which comes from the Occasions Catalog, which ends soon; May 31st!
The card stays nicely closed by tucking the top flap under the pretty “Antique Brad” from our Annual Catalog. This item will be retiring so if you like it … Don’t forget to place your order before they are gone for good…. May 31st.
The brad is secured to the Marina Mist cardstock which was embossed with the “Chevron” embossing folder to give it some added texture. Our base card is Basic Black.
As you open the flap you will see additional stamping and watercoloring (on the Thick Whisper White) The inner or top flap is mounted on the base which was covered in this cute pattern that is found in the “Cherry on Top” Designer Series Paper Stack! That is a fun pack of paper!
I love how the 2 pieces of the card interconnect folds … it’s like a note card on a big card meshed together to create one fun card!
Keep an eye out as I will be posting a tutorial on “how to” make this style of card. Till then, I hope you enjoyed.
Have a great weekend, and be sure to stop back tomorrow to see a new card share from my Simply Sunday series and a fun announcement!
