Three Beautiful Watercolor Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend. The heat and humidity keeps me inside which was just fine with me, I have an entire box of goodies to discover from the Holiday catalog and my Catalog Launch party coming up in a week.  So … I’m starting with Halloween and working my way to Christmas. I hope you can join us because this is going to be a big one!!

I also hope you got a chance to visit my blog yesterday and check out the video.  The video showed you our August 2018 Paper Pumpkin and the beautiful watercolor card fronts and stamp set. On that note … Today I’m going to share three alternative projects from this card kit.

My first card I kept very simple yet I wanted to bring out the beautiful colors  in the card by using the Blackberry Bliss for my base and Old Olive to mat the watercolored design ….

It was such a simple way to revise the card.  I stamped the greeting onto the piece of the card I cut off and cut it out with the smallest oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits and attached it with the Stampin’ Dimensionals which are included in the kit!  To finish the card, I used the Wink of Stella to highlight the butterfly on this card … my Mom loved butterflies.

For my second card I wanted to use and highlight the touching and tender verse that was included with the stamp set.  Just loosing my Mom this January, the verse brought tears to my eyes … it shows such gentleness and concern for those suffering such a loss.

To highlight this verse: The Loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind  I used one of the dies from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies from the Color Your Season promotion going on now. The verse was stamped onto the back of the card that I cut off and then I placed some of the greenery around it to frame it and give it some beautiful dimension.  Next I attached the floral frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals  and adhered the entire front to the Blackberry Bliss back.  I did stamp flowers (from the stamp set inside).

The third card was used because I wanted to use the die cut piece from the second card …

I love that the piece that was cut out also has the stitching (these amazing dies do a double stitch!) and that it lined up perfectly with the front!!  I tucked some of the greenery behind it again and added the twine to it … all included in the kit!  Simple yet elegant.  This Paper Pumpkin kit is one of my favorites … so beautiful and easy to make alternative (but not necessary!)
