You make me HAPPY!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Yesterday I showed you a card using the watermark stamp from the “Happy Watercolor” Stamp set, and I will share another card with you today using that watermark!

I also included a few more stamps from the set to give you a better idea of what a versatile stamp set it is.  You can find the “Happy Watercolor” stamp set on page 22 of the Occasions Catalog or by clicking on the link.

Once I chose the flower, I picked the color I wanted to work with and I thought 2012-14 In-Color  “Primrose Petal” was just what I was looking for.  The “Primrose Petal” mat was cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″.


Next I cut the Whisper White to 3-3/4″ x 5″ and ran it through the Bigshot using the “Flower Garden Embossing Folder”.  Because I wanted the flower pattern on the left side of my card, the pattern is indented instead of protruding (or sticking up).  Next I cut out a circle using the “Circle Collection Framelits”.  You now have a window for your flower.

The flower was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, using the Black StazOn ink … this is the best ink to use when coloring because it will not bleed.

I don’t color as much as I used to, and I don’t know why because it is so relaxing and fun to do.  I love layering the color to give the flower dimension.  I used the Primrose Petal ink from the ink pad and blender pen to do most of the coloring.  The center was done with the “Summer Starfruit” marker.  Both colors are found in the 2012-14 In-color Collection.  When competed, this was mounted onto the card front with the use of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Since I had the marker close by, I decided to dye my Organza Ribbon.  Those ladies who stamp with me a lot, know that the white organza ribbon is one of my favorites, because all you need is a marker or an ink pad and you can color you ribbon to match your cardstocks!  How cool is that!!

Ok … now my ribbon is off to the side to dry, so I stamped my greeting onto the card with the Black StazOn (let dry… it does not take long) and then I inked up the watermark stamp in Primrose Petals and stamped directly over the greeting.  It gives balance to the card … they call it a 3 point card (3 points of interest, that draw your eye around the entire card).


Before mounting the card front onto the mat I added my ribbon, first the long strip, and then tying the second ribbon around it, to create the bow.  I’m sure any one of your friends would love to get this card.

I also want to share with you the…
