Dandelion Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! I am happy to say I got some stamping done this weekend, it was so fun to play with all the new items so I chose the Dandelion Wishes.  I love this stamp set (there are so many great new sets in this catalog!!)

I began with the background using a waterwash watercolor technique. In a small dish I put a drop of the new Balmy Blue ink, a little water and I squeezed a couple drops of the Wink of Stella in the mix!  Using the Aqua Painter … I brushed a little water onto my cardstock and then I picked up some “color” from my mixture and brushed it onto the cardstock.

Not a project I could do in a class because it was pretty wet and took a while to drive however I also could have used the Watercolor paper!! lol  I do however love the shimmer from the Wink of Stella.  Once dry I simply stamped the images onto the cardstock using my StazOn.

I finished off my card with the new Faceted Dot by placing them in the center of my dandelions – so nice to have all the new embellishments!  It is a simple layout but I love these stamps and the font on the greetings … so pretty!!

So many possibilities with this stamp set! Hope you enjoyed this one.

Thank you for checking out my blog post today …

Have yourself a great Monday.

  1. Hi Lola. Thank you for sharing your story … I’d be happy to help you come up with something. I work during the week, but when I get home tonight I will come up with some samples … already have a few ideas in my head. I will be in touch with you. Have a wonderful day! Linda

  2. Stunning card. Does your envelope complement your card? What creative techniques could be used to design custom stationary and envelope for an elderly woman who enjoys being a pen pal. She uses an 8.5×11 white paper folded in half numbering each section as page #’s. She has asked how to get very pretty paper with matching envelope, lives in nursing home with limited income, enjoys ministering to others being a pen pal. Please contact me, I would like to talk with you. Thankyou, Lola

    • I visited Darlene in rehabilitation due to her back pain, met her at church, then moved to Iowa to be near family. She asked if we could be pen pals. Ive been sending a card, Ive never been a pen pal. Asked where I can help her find pretty stationery & matching envelopes. She is a joy. Thankyou Linda. You may call my cell 727/212-3710 or send a message.
