Watercolor Thank You …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you some more patterns from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series paper.  Yesterday I showed you my least favorite … today I will show you two of my favorites!

I must say, I am really beginning to fall in love with this new designer paper, and I can’t wait to host an event and let you get your hands on it.  In fact, watch for an e-mail announcing my “Sale-a-bration Stampede”… I am working on the details now, and will be sending out details in about a week.

On to today’s card share, I have used 3 more patterns from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper …

Can you tell which are my favorites?  You’re right, it is the flowered patterns.  They were both so beautiful, I wanted to share them both.  I tied the colors together by using the yellow & gray stripped pattern … the Smokey Slate (gray) is found in the blue pattern, and the yellow from the striped coordinates with the yellow & tangerine, it then tied them together perfectly.

I began with the usual 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ cardstock in Whisper White, and folded it in half for the base of my card.  The mat for the card is Smokey Slate and is cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″.  The flower pieces were cut at 3-1/4″ x 1-7/8″ and the stripped pattern was 1-1/4″ x 1-7/8″.  These will now piece together nicely on the mat… much easier to do than a puzzle.

My greeting comes from the stamp set “Lots of Thanks” found on page 29 of the Idea Book & Catalog (our main catalog).  I then cut the greeting and the Smokey Slate mat from the “Ovals Collection Framelits“.  There are 7 layer dies with this set, so they can highlight any greeting!

I always stamp my image / greeting first, and then cut it out … that way I don’t have to worry about it being crooked, because I can always place the die where I need to.

I wanted to add a special little touch to the card, so I cut out one of the flowers from the designer paper and popped it up over the greeting.  To finish, I added a couple of “Pearls” from the jewels on page 171.  You can also click on any of the links (highlighted in pink) to view the product details.

So here you have it, some of my favorite patterns from the “Watercolor Wonder” designer series paper.

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have a quick & easy card for you, showcasing the “I Am Me” Designer Series Paper … and what better way to do that, than a card with a sampling of the papers!

100_1782

The card was totally created using multiple circle punches … can’t get much easier than that!  Simply punch out different sized circles from your designer series paper and adhere them to your card front.  I used Basic Gray … however, it appears (at least on my computer) as navy… ?

I layered my card, so I could run the piece with the circles through the Bigshot to give it even more texture!

The greeting comes from the stamp set “Lots of Thanks” (W- 129687 / C – 129690) and is stamped in basic gray.

Today’s quick and easy card … comes with a quick and easy post.

Enjoy your day!

Thanks for stopping by.
