Tank You Water Color Card Set

June 5, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

Swim lessons are over for the summer. I made the swim instructors some cookies and these cute thank you cards.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A4 card

Extra Details:  I started by water coloring an entire piece of water color paper. I layered blues, greens and purples until I got a background I liked. I cut the piece into smaller pieces. I ended up with seven panels and three strips. I needed eight cards, so I adhered the panels to a scrap piece of paper to make an eighth panel. I trimmed the top of the panels to look like waves. Then, the kiddos and I started stamping. We used dye inks to stamp everything. I adhered the panels to white card bases and was done.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Penelope’s Blossoms, Happily Ever After, and Riley’s ABCs

Clearly Besotted’s In Print

Hope you enjoyed the card

Flowers on Kraft

I just bought a pack of kraft card stock and wanted to play with it.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I stamped a bunch of floral images in a diagonal on a kraft card base. The grey dots were a second generation stamping. I used bright Memento Inks. I stamped a banner on white card stock. Before fussy cutting out the banner, I stamped the sentiment and some more floral images on it. I finished the card by adhering the banner to the center.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Penelope’s Blossoms and Sophie’s Sentiments

Ink: Memento Dew Drop inks in Bahama Blue, Part Tart, Rose Bud, Tuxedo Black, and Dandelion

Hope you enjoyed the card
