Special Day … Watercolor Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today we’re trading in the designer paper for our Watercolor Paper! We are going to use the new Watercolor Pencils to create a really cool background with step by step instructions!  As promised, I will be using the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle again today.


So … we are going to begin with our watercolor paper, the new pencils and your Aqua painter.


When you color your paper, you do not need to press hard … the lead is soft and spreads easily. You can use any color combination for your cards but today I went with more of a rainbow effect.

Did you know these new Watercolor Pencils come in Stampin’ Up! colors … that is awesome!!


Once you’ve colored your paper with the desired colors, take your Aqua Painter and begin your watercoloring process just by moving the painter … the water is inside. Just a little squeeze can give you a bit more moisture.  Too much moisture or water puddling?  Simply soak it up with a tissue. Let Dry.

Now were back to our dragonflies … again, I cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, but this time I cut out an additional set of dragonflies in black and adhered that to my glimmer paper with just a touch of it showing … creates a nice shadow effect!


I did some watercoloring directly onto my glimmer paper as well. Also colored their heads in (not sure I’d do that again)!! They are popped up with dimensions so they appear to by flying.

Just love this bundle and the new Watercolor pencils.  If you like watercoloring be sure to stop back tomorrow, I have another Water color card for you.

Thanks for dropping in. I hope you enjoyed the card today and yesterday that highlighted the Dragonfly Dreams bundle.

Have a great day!

Wonderful Friend …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card to share with you that has the beautiful “Falling in Love” Designer Series Paper.  This papers design also has the “Bokeh” look and I’m teaming it up with the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle …


My card has the designer paper blocked matted with a piece of Pear Pizzazz and our medium sized dragonfly nestled right in the center! I cut the dragonfly out of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and let the sparkles help highlight that beautiful paper.

I mounted that directly onto a piece of Blushing Bride after stamping it it with my greeting. I was thinking of a friend when I made this card, she loves dragonflies   This piece was then popped up with our Stampin’ dimensions and placed on a Pear Pizzazz base.


Not all cards have to be layered with stuff, sometimes it’s all in the message … To a Wonderful friend.

Did you know… that if you purchase the “Dragonfly Dreams” bundle and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper – You will qualify for an Exclusive Sale-a-bration item and a Virtual Rewards Point from me!

I have another card to share with you tomorrow that also highlights the “Dragonfly Dreams” stamp set and a NEW product & technique.

Thank you for checking in on me today and can’t wait to see you tomorrow.

Have yourself a terrific Tuesday!
