Watercolor Stamping With Embossing – Blooming With Kindness

Today I’m sharing two cards that I made for Freshly Made Sketches #81.  I used the watercolor stamping with embossing technique (you can see my tutorial here) and the Blooming With Kindness stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to create the cards.

I followed the technique that I showed you in my tutorial except I added a little Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  I used the Summer Starfruit ink refill for this card:

Blooming With Kindness

I stamped the sentiment from the Blooming With Kindness stamp set in Summer Starfruit ink on a Whisper White Panel.  I layered a panel of Birds of a Feather DSP over the top and adhered it with SNAIL.  Then I adhered a strip of Summer Starfruit 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon to the Whisper White panel with SNAIL, then I adhered the panel to the card base with SNAIL.

I used Summer Starfruit ink refill, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and water to create my watercolor image.  I stamped the image on Whisper White card stock and let it dry completely (I used my heat tool to speed up the drying process).  I stamped the flower image a second time in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I cut it out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies and adhered it with SNAIL to a Summer Starfruit Window Frame that I’d pierced using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack and my Paper-Piercing Tool.  I adhered the layered panels to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added two In Color Dahlias next to the sentiment using Glue Dots to adhere them.

Blooming With Kindness 2

I used Baja Breeze and Summer Starfruit ink refills and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz to create this image.  I added Baja Breeze 1/2″ Seam Binding Ribbon using Sticky Strip to adhere it and I stamped the sentiment in Baja Breeze ink.  I added three rhinestones next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

To finish both cards, I stamped the flower image again in Summer Starfruit ink on Whisper White card stock and I adhered the panel inside the card with SNAIL.
