Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Last night I held my “Sailing Away” Class … rescheduled because I was sick last week (Thanks Ladies) and we had a great time making some really amazing cards, learning a new technique and did two cards with cool fold cards.
One of these cards I am sharing with you today … it is the Bridge Fold card with a fun new technique I called Watercolor Waves. I will try to explain it to you the best I can. First let me show you the card …
We did this in Night of Navy cardstock and embellished it with the Come Sail Away Designer Series paper and the Sail Away Trinkets. The greeting and sun were punched out using the 1-1/2″ Circle punch, the mat behind the greeting was die cut using one of the dies from the set included in the bundle.
The inner part of the card is Balmy Blue cardstock which was embossed 1/2 way up using the “High Seas” embossing folder. Then we used the Wink of Stella pen and Night of Navy ink to watercolor over our waves. Start with the darker shades at the bottom of the wave and as the ink comes off the brush, it gets lighter as you go up the wave. Once dry (and it dries pretty fast) use a sponge dauber and the White Craft Ink to sponge the tops of the waves … creating white caps!
The “bridge” that goes across the card was done in Night of Navy and Balmy Blue wrapped in the Night of Navy / Sahara Sand Bakers Twine. Everything coordinates so nicely and can be found on pages 144 – 146 in the Come Sail Away Suite. That can now be purchased with just one number, and includes the “Sailing Home” bundle of the stamp set and dies (at a 10% discount).
Don’t forget the Designer Series Paper in on Sale … Buy 3 / Get 1 FREE.
Hope you enjoyed today’s card as much as I enjoyed designing it and sharing it with my class.
Thank you so much for sharing a part of your day with me.
Enjoy your Saturday ~
