Your Next Stamp

wc wreath blue duo

For my post, I made two cards and videos using our Watercolor Bouquet and Watercolor Wreath Stamps! I stamped and colored one panel and sliced it diagonally to create two cards.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by stamping a background pattern using our Watercolor Bouquet stamp set in our Miami Cool Dye Ink. Then I colored in the background using color pencils. I added blue, dark pink and green accents for a bright and beautiful background panel. I sliced it in half and used the larger panel for my first card.

I stamped a rustic wood background using our Buildable Woodgrain layering stamp using our Crystal Pewter and Smoky Quartz Dye Inks. I only stamped about 2/3 of my panel since the bottom half would be covered by my bouquet panel.

Next I created a silver glitter and navy strip to adhere behind my bouquet panel. Next I mounted that onto my woodgrain panel. Then I heat embossed the beautiful wreath from our Watercolor Wreath onto navy cardstock using silver glitter embossing powder. I embossed my sentiment at the same time and then die cut the wreath using the coordinating die. Then I mounted the wreath and sentiment using foam tape.

For my second card, I used my remaining stamped bouquet piece.

I started off by white heat embossing our Peony Terrace stamp onto a top folding A2 horizontal cardbase. Then I adhered the bouquet sliced panel onto the left side of my base. I added a silver accent strip for some bling. Then I stamped a gorgeous frame from our Modern Labels set in our Ocean Teal Dye Ink. Next I stamped the sentiment from our Large Peony 4 set in our Miami Cool Dye Ink. Lastly, I die cut the label/frame using the coordinating die and then mounted it onto my base to complete my card.

    Beautiful cards – I love the contrasting panels.

    I have so many favorites from your shop that it was hard to narrow it down to just one, but it is Anemone Bouquet (at the moment) 🙂

    I love how you made two cards out of 1 card front. I also love the color choice. As for which stamp I’d love to win…. it would have to be the Daisy (3/4 View) Close Up Cling Background. it is just *stunning*! (it was a hard choice as there are soooo many gorgeous stamps!)
