Remarkable You

Sometimes I like to give myself a challenge! So when I set out to make this card, I challenged myself to work on making a collage style card!  I love the look of this style of cards.  So, I decided to give it a try! This all started when I was watercoloring some leaves from Remarkable You Stamp Set!  I love this set so much. And it had been neglected lately by me! So I was watercoloring and thanking about what I could make ….

Remarkably You

Like I said, I adore this beautiful set! It is just perfect in every way. The bold graphic feel. The ease of coloring. And so on…

  • The leaves were stamped on watercolor paper with Basic Black Ink. Then watercolor with the Old Olive pencil and a aqua painter
  • The pink layer is watercolor paper painted with the Calypso Coral pencil. Creating a gradient effect.
  • The doily is lightly water colored with the Bermuda Bay pencil.
  • The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts stamp set. And is stamped and Basic Black Ink on Very Vanilla.

The card base is 5 1/2 by 5 1/2 square card in Bermuda Bay.  To make a square card use a 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of card stock. Cut it at 5 1/2 inches on the 8 1/2 side. Then score at 5 1/2 on the 11 inch side. The next layer is 5 3/8 by 5 3/8 inches in Powder Pink. The Basic Black Layer is 5 by 5 inches.  The Wood layer is 4 7/8 by 4 7/ 8 inches.

At Home with you sweet puppy

It is always a sweet moment when a friend brings a new pet home.  A friend recently got a new puppy.  So, of course I had to make them a card that will go along with a gift from my favorite pet store. Come Sit Stay in Nashville, Tn.  This store is amazing and the owner Robin always knows just the right gift! She is amazing at what she does. So when you are in Nashville be sure to stop by her store! You want be disappointed!

For the card, I used the stamp set bundle At Home With You! This set is super fun! I love the door and all the seasonal decorations!!

At Home With You Bundle

I love the classy modern feel of this stamp set!!! How fun is it to have a beautiful door to decorate.

  • Each element was stamped and then watercolored using watercolor pencils and ink refills.
  • Then using the coordinating dies, each element was cut out
  • The background is the brick walls embossing folder and the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper(available Sep. 1)
  • The door has a special die that cuts it on three sides allowing the door to open.
  • That cute little dog is from the build a bike bundle. Is he not just adorable in front of the door…

The door opens up for a sweet message. That was created using a little masking, stamp surgery (yes I cut a sentiment in half ?…it will be okay ?. I put him back together with ❤ …?), and the Brushwork Alphabet set.

Ticket to ride

Music is a big source of inspiration for me.  I love all sorts of music.  And at different stages of my life different genres of music appealed to me.  The older I get the more I want to listing to music that is relaxing.  That being said, some times it great to pull out the records of the past and enjoy the memories rush through.  One of the first albums that I pull out is Vanilla Fudge.  The other  and I use to listen to this album all the time. Sit on the screened in porch and Blair music ? and drink martinis ?.   Mind you we lived in the middle of a hay-field.  One of the awesome songs was ticket to ride. A Beatles cover stuck amongst some very awesome tunes. I know how the songs on the albumSegway from one to the next….  I was thinking about all this yesterday morning while I was working on my card for today.   And what a Wonderful Life we have had together.  It was not the life either of us expected.  It has definitely had its moments!! But,  I would do it all over again to be on that porch with martinis and Vanilla Fudge… The Wonderful Life stamp set from the upcoming Holiday Catalog is so stinking cute.  I can just see  Clark Griswold packing for Christmas or that young couple headed out on their first adventure!! This adorable stamp set has my ticket for sure.

Wonderful Life

I adore this stamp set!  It is perfect for watercolor! Witch is my favorite thing to do!  It is just totally relaxing!!!  I love the way watercolor makes you relax and just let the color do its thing.

I made two cards for you today! They are basically the same card. But, with different themes and colors!!! The Wonderful Life stamp set is perfect for so many different occasions!!!

I love how just changing a few thing like color and paper makes a whole new card for a completely different occasion!

Both cards are square! My favorite size of card to make right now!!! I love the big 5 1/5 by 5 1/2 inch square cards I have been making.  But, my friend Julie, the Paper Pixie, makes the most adorable little mini cards.  My goal was to make something simular…well, things didn’t go as planned?   my cards did not turn out mini… They are 4 1/2 by 4 1/2.  This size feels like the perfect size for a square card!!!

  • The elements are stamped in archival Basic Black on shimmery white paper
  • I used my watercolor pencils, gold and clear wink of stella to add color.  I used basic gray for the bumper.   Real red and old olive for the presents.  One present is gold wink of stella. The car is daffodil delight.  The wheels are basic black
  • After the watercolor was dried I used a black pin to go over some of the lines that were faded.

Here is a close up of the watercolor

I love that Stampin’ Up! has thought of all the details! They even give you stamps to add a personalized tag!  ?  I also love how the gold wink of stella looks like shimmery kraft paper! How fun is that ?

The card base is real red.  To make a 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 square card. Cut a piece of card stock so that it is 4 1/2 by 7 inches. On the 7 inch side score and burnish at 4 1/2 inches.  The polka dots layer is from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.  The dsp is cut to be 4 3/8 by 4 3/8 inches.  The popped up layer is real red and shimmery white. The real red is 3 5/8 by 3 5/8 inches. The shimmery white is 3 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches.

  • By just changing the colors to metallic and peach with a big splash of rich razzleberry we have this sweet wedding card!!!
  • I used the wink of stella pins to color most of the presents. On two I used clear wink of stella and peekaboo peach ink refill
  • The car is watercolored just like the other excerpt, I used the rich razzleberry watercolor pencils instead of daffodil delight
  • The tin cans are basic gray with a touch of clear wink of stella.
  • As if this card did not have enough shine. I layered it with the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper and Champagne Foil

Here is an up close of this watercolor and all the fun layers!!!

The card base is peekaboo peach (same as described above)   The next layer is the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper. The dsp is cut 4 3/8 by 4 3/8 inches. The next three layers are popped up. The champagne foil is 3 7/8 by 3 7/8 inches. The peekaboo peach layer is 3 3/4 by 3 3/4 inches.
