Amazing Silhouettes Card in Watercolor

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing the last of the 3 images in the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set. I’m using a touch of watercoloring with this one. I began by stamping the leaf image on to one of the watercolor patterns in the Dainty Flowers Designer papers in Old Olive. Yes, I stamped my image onto designer paper.

I added water to the middle size Water Painter and I used it to activate the ink and give it a more watercolor look. Then I added a little more ink to the image using the Water Painter giving it more depth of color…..

Once dry, I added a Mossy Meadow mat to it and wrapped the corner with the 3/4″ White Frayed Ribbon and then some of the natural Bakers Twine. These add so much texture to the card and create a framed edge for our foliage.

Using another pattern from the Dainty Flowers I cut into two pieces and used one side to highlight the green and the other to highlight the freesia that is found on the original piece that I stamped on. I layered these three pieces together and mounted them onto my cardfront.

I used Mossy Meadow for my card front and then embossed it with the Stitched Greenery Die. It gives the project some texture and a touch of greenery! You’ll love how the intricate detail dresses up the card perfectly.

No bling on this card because I wanted to keep it more natural. I added the card front to my base in Mossy Meadow … I love layering color on color, it’s such soft and subtle look.

Hope you enjoyed the three different looks / techniques that showcased the Amazing Silhouettes. I have to “Thank” my friend Karen who booked a workshop and asked to see this stamp set. It totally changed my mind … I love it! It’s unique and lends itself to many different techniques.

Thanks for popping in today, I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

Amazing Silhouettes Faith over Fear Card ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card to share from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set and a fun technique that really showcases the silhouette aspect of this stamp set. There are three different images in this stamp set and it’s when you add ink that they really come to life.

I’m going to be using a type of “Emboss Resist” technique on my card today. Starting with the VersaMark pad … ink up the butterfly image and stamp it onto your card front (I’m using a 3-3/4″ x 5″ sheet of Basic White) re-apply ink and stamp a second and repeat. Pour White embossing powder over the butterfly images and heat until the powder turns smooth and shiny.

Next I pulled out my Blending Brushes along with Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo, and Coastal Cabana ink pads….

Pull the Blending Brush across the ink pad to ink up and then using a rotating motion beginning “off” your cardstock bring it in and color in your butterflies. I used a different brush for each color. Then grab a tissue and wipe excess ink off of the embossed area.

Once the excess ink is wiped off, I added the White Glittered Organdy Ribbon between two of the butterflies attaching the ends to the backside of the card front. Once secure, I tied another piece onto the ribbon to create a bow. This is when I layered the Flirty Flamingo mat behind my card front.

Using the same Charming Sentiments bundle I used on yesterday’s card, I stamped the “Faith over Fear” sentiment in Highland Heather and then die cut it with the coordinating dies in the bundle.

I then embellished the card using the Iridescent Rhinestones. I love how they pick up the colors of the ink I used and just twinkle on this card … it gives you a soft, warm feeling like a hug, and pairs perfectly with our sentiment.

Such a beautiful card with a soft touch of color, and pretty darn easy to make too! Embossing is what actually attracted me to the world of stamping, with a few simple steps you can elevate your card to the next level. What inspired you to begin stamping?

Thank you for visiting my blog today, hope yours is a good one.

Simply Sunday: Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a simple card created with the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set from our Annual Stampin’ Up! Catalog. Get back to nature with the nature-inspired images in the Amazing Silhouettes Stamp Set. Create beautiful silhouettes in one simple step. Use one color to make a bold impression or multiple colors for an ombre look.

My card base is Mossy Meadow and the beautiful designer paper is Sale-a-brations very own Dainty Flowers … the paper you can get for FREE with a $50 purchase. Because the Dainty Flowers paper has shades of Mossy Meadow and Old Olive, I used the Old Olive ink for my stamped silhouette and my greeting…. both on Basic White cardstock.

I wrapped bakers twine around my stamped image to create some texture and add a touch of nature to the card. This entire piece was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The greeting is a bit more than what I usually use for a Simply Sunday card but I couldn’t resist. Meet the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set, which includes various sentiments in different stylistic fonts designed to be used for all occasions. With this set, say thank you and congratulations, wish happy birthday and good luck, and show people you care. Grab some ink, pair with the images of your choice, and create your personalized handmade cards.

Love this sentiment set, and it gets better because it has coordinating dies!! That’s right … you can stamp your sentiments directly or die cut them and add them anywhere on your card! I also cut out a mat using the greeting die for some additional layering and to enhance the sentiment.

A great sentiment stamp set (with dies) is a must have for any stamp room, and a good investment as you can use it with any other stamp set, or just to add it to some of our stunning designer paper that doesn’t need anything else!

A simple card today that could be used for a man or a women, perfect isn’t it? I thank you for taking time out of your Sunday for the visit.

Have a great day ~
