The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Let Love Grow Card with Watercolor

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful watercolor card to share with you.  Watercolor is so popular right now and the wonderful thing about it is that you don't have to be an expert to do it and it takes just a little bit of practice.  Watercolor is so free flowing and if your colors happen to go out of the lines a little that's ok, it still looks beautiful.  It's also a lot easier then most people think so if you have been wanting to try watercolor but just haven't done it yet I encourage you to give it a try.


Here is the card that I designed.  I stamped the rose image from  JustRite® Papercraft CR-02112 Hope and Love Vintage Labels 8 and 9 Clear Stamps using VersaMark Watermark Ink on to the Ranger Watercolor Paper.  Then I heat embossed using  Stampendous Super Fine Embossing Powder - Detail White and a heat tool.  To create my watercolors I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks-Worn LipstickWild Honey, Peeled PaintPine Needles, Broken ChinaVintage Photo.  Press the ink pads on to a craft mat.  If you don't have a craft mat you could use a variety of things such as--a foam plate, a regular plate (the ink will was off), wax paper, and freezer paper.


When the image is heat embossed the embossing will help to hold the watercolor in place for you.  So if you are new to watercoloring you might like this technique and feel a little more comfortable with it.  I started coloring the rose first, coloring one petal at a time.  I wet the paper first with water and only wet the area I was painting.  Wetting the paper will allow the watercolor to flow more freely.  For the rose I used Worn Lipstick and Wild Honey.  One the leaves I used  Peeled Paint andPine Needles.  For the background color I used Broken China and Vintage Photo--starting with the Broken China first.  You can also use a heat tool to set and dry your watercolor in between the layers of color.


After all the watercolor was done I still wanted to add some interest to the background of the paper and I was also trying to match it up to the patter paper I used on the card.  I used the CL-04355 French Rose Background Cling Stamp from  JustRite® Papercraft and I inked up only the text area on the stamp with Momento Espresso Truffle ink.  Then I stamped once on some scratch paper and then stamped again on the watercolor paper.  Doing this gave me the lighter color of ink.  I randomly stamped the text a few times on the background.


I used S4-422 Majestic Squares die template from  Spellbinders Paper Arts® to cut the decorative shape.  Then I inked the outer edge with Momento Espresso Truffle.


Here is a close up of the watercolored image.


To finish off the card I used some beautiful paper from the Prima-Something Blue 6 x 6 Paper PadPetaloo Botanica Minis Collection Coral and TealMint Green May Arts Silk Ribbon to create a pretty bow.  

I hope you enjoyed the card today as much as I enjoyed creating it and I really hope you will give watercoloring a try.  :)  As always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Pay Ball Card and Peanut Gift Box Set

Hello everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a fun, quick and easy masculine project that would be a great gift idea for the man who loves sports.


Here is the card and peanut gift box set that I designed.  How many of you have men in your lives that love sports and peanuts?  If they don't happen to like peanuts you could swap them out for their favorite candy or snack and maybe throw in a pair of tickets to a game.  :)

I love it when a project comes together so easily and whenever I work with the Graphic 45 papers that seems to happen.  The papers are so fabulous to work with!  For this project I used several different sheets of paper from the Graphic 45 Good Ol' Sport 8 x 8 Paper Pad collection.  I just did some fussy cutting, layering and adding a couple of embellishments and it was done.


Here is a look at the card.  I used ivory cardstock for a base and all of the papers came from the paper pad.  I fussy cut a few of the smaller images and the tickets.  Then I used  3D Foam Squares and EZ Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® to layer all of the pieces.  


I fussy cut two of the tickets and then used a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Memo Pin to hold them in place on the card.  Here is a little tip--when fussy cutting tickets used a round hole punch to punch of the corners and then trim the sides.  Doing this will give you nice clean and crisp corners and using the hole punch is a lot easier then trying to do that with a scissors.


Here is a close up of the couple of the images.  To finish off the card I added a few Prima Sugar Dots-Allstar for embellishments.


Here is the box of peanuts.  I used one of the Crystal Clear Boxes - A6.  I cut a piece of the pattern paper to fit on the inside of the box for a more finished look.  You can see just a little bit of the paper peaking through at the top of the box.


Using the same papers as I did fro the card I fussy cut and layered the paper and the images and added this to the front of the box.  I also added a few more of the Prima Sugar Dots-Allstar for embellishments.  Then I filled the box with honey roasted peanuts. 

I hope you enjoyed the card and peanut gift box today as much as I enjoyed creating it!  This is a great little gift idea for a man and using the Graphic 45 papers makes it so easy!  As always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.

Love and Hugs Card - JustRite Papercraft August New Release Day Four

Hello blogging friends!  Today is day four of the JustRite® Papercraft New Release for August and this is our last day of the release too.  For today we have one stamp set with a coordinating SVG File and a Background Stamp to share with you.










I used the exact cut file to create the large floral frame and the two small flower accents.  I colored directly on the stamps using Distress Markers-Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, Mowed Lawn and light sprayed the stamp with a little water to reactivate the ink.  Then I inked the edges of the cut pieces using Distress Ink-Antique Linen.



These are a couple of close ups of the card.  I used  S6-010 5 x 7 Heirloom LegacyS6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A, and S4-425 Elegant Ovals from Spellbinders Paper Arts® to create the die cuts.  I stamped the sentiment using Rich Cocoa ink.  I used 3D Foam Squares, and E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips-Refillable Dispenser 49' to layer and adhere all of the pieces together.  To finish off the card I added some Ivory Flat Back Pearls from Em's Emporium and Wild Orchid Flowers.


Thank you for joining us during the August New Release!  I hope you enjoyed all the inspiration from the Design Team.

Celebration Sentiments - Happy Birthday Card - JustRite Papercraft August New Release Day Three

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for day three of the August New Releases from  JustRite® Papercraft?  Today, we have a lovely sentiment stamp set and two die templates sets to share with you.


This is a wonderful stamp set that can be used for several different occasions.


Check out the tiny little tag die template.  Love it!


I think this flourish die template is so gorgeous!


Here is the card that I designed using CR-02099 Celebrations Sentiments Clear StampsCL-02086 Cornflower Damask Cling Background StampJB-02089 Vintage Labels Nine Dies and JB-02084 Vintage Flourish One Dies.  To create the background I started with a piece of white cardstock.  I added three colors of ink--Grape Jelly, Sweet Plum, and LuLu Lavender to the CL-02086 Cornflower Damask Cling Background Stamp and stamped the image.  Then I took a cotton ball and lightly applied the same ink colors on top of the background image.  Then I added a purple mat and layered the pieces on to a lavender card base.


I stamped the sentiment on to white cardstock and then used two of the die templates and another piece of the lavender cardstock along with  JB-02089 Vintage Labels Nine Dies to create the die cuts.  I used purple cardstock and JB-02084 Vintage Flourish One Dies to create the flourish die cut.  Then I added a few white flat back pearls from Em's Emporium.


I used  May Arts Lavender Sheer Ribbon from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store to create a box.  For the center of the bow I made a little bouquet using  Silver Filigree Bead Caps CAP216-PFrosted Acrylic Flower Beads (Item #ABD560-PL) (purple flower), Silver Ball End Head Pins, and  Clear AB Rhinestone Rondelle Spacer Beads - 6mm (Item #BD006-P/AB) all from ButterBeeScraps.  I also added a few white pearls 4mm and 6 mm from my own stash.


Here is a close up of the individual pieces I used from ButterBeeScraps.


To create the flowers I started with the head pin, added a 4mm pearl, purple bead cap, rondelle, and a 6mm pearl.  I added a tiny drop of Glossy Accents to hold the beads in place.


Once I had the flowers made I used the excess wire from the head pins to wire wrap around the bottom of the silver bead cap and hold everything in place.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!

Elegant Fan Elements Card - JustRite Papercraft August New Release Day Two

Hello everyone!  It's day two of the JustRite® Papercraft August New Release.  Today, we have a couple of clear stamp sets and coordinating SVG Files to share with you.




There is also a matching die template set for the fans that was part of last months release.  You can click HERE to see the JB-02008 Vintage Fan Dies.




I didn't happen to use this SVG File for my project but some of the Design Team Members did and wait until you see just how beautiful it is!  Love this new Stationery Set!


Here is the card that I designed using  CR-02091 Elegant Fan Elements Clear Stamps and the matching JB-02008 Vintage Fan Dies from JustRite® Papercraft.  I stamped the images with VersaMark ink and then I used Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss.  


I colored the fan using Spectrum Noir™ Pencils-Primaries 065, 068, 034, 078.


Here is a close up of the fan.  I added pearls, sequins and some small lace applique flowers.  Then I made a little tassel around the bottom of the fan with gold metallic string, lace, and some pink silk ribbon.  To finish it off I added a pink ribbon rose to the front.


I stamped a couple little accents and the sentiment in the corners and added more pearls.  The card base is white with a layer of pink and then pattern paper from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Collection.

I hope you enjoyed today's card and the new releases.

Hope and Love Vintage Labels Eight and Nine - JustRite Papercraft August New Release Day One

Hello blogging friends!  Today, is the first day of the  JustRite® Papercraft August New Release!  We have several beautiful new stamps sets, coordinating SVG file, and die templates so share with you.  For the first day of the New Release the Design Team will be sharing projects made with one of the new stamp sets and two new background stamps.








Here is the card that I designed using CR-02112 Hope and Love Vintage Labels Eight and Nine Clear Stamps.  For the background I stamped the roses using VersaMark Ink and then I used white embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Then I used Distress Markers-Broken China, Mowed Lawn, Picked Raspberry with a little bit of water to watercolor the background paper.


I used painters tape to tape down the watercolor paper.  Then I heat embossed and added watercolor to the paper.  I love how the colors turned out so soft and dreamy!  


Here is a close up of the background paper.


Next I used the same stamp and added color using Distress Markers- Mowed Lawn and Picked Raspberry.


I added water to the image to blend and fade it out.  Then I heat set the paper.  After that was done I used JB-02087 Vintage Labels Eight Dies to cut/emboss the label shape and then stamped and embossed the sentiment and I edged the label with metallic gold.


Here is a close up of the sentiment.  I used gold embossing powder and I added some sequins too.


Here is a close up of the background.  I added some Stampendous-Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel and Aged Gold Embossing Enamel for another layer and some texture.


To finish the card I distressed the edges of the watercolor paper and added some May Arts Silk Ribbon Tiffany Blue and Metallic Gold String.  Then I added the background to a pink cardbase.

I hope this card inspires you to create!
