Stampin’ Up! Watercolor Wings Just For You

I used the Watercolor Wings and Definitely Dahlia stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card to share today.  I love these two new stamp sets!!  Okay, I love all of the new stamp sets, but these are my favorites today.  😉Watercolor Wings - Stamp With Amy K

The design for my card is loosely based on Freshly Made Sketches 189.

The colors for my card were based on Can You Case It #73.Screen Shot 2015-06-07 at 5.24.43 PM

I started by stamping the image from the Definitely Dahlia stamp in Blushing Bride ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock with SNAIL, then to a Sahara Sand card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Watercolor Wings 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the images from the Watercolor Wings photopolymer stamp set in Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Tuxedo Black Memento Inks on a Whisper White panel.  I cut the image out with the matching Bold Butterfly Framelits Die and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Watercolor Wings 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I cut a butterfly from White Vellum with the smaller butterfly from the Bold Butterfly Framelits Die set and adhered it with a Glue Dot over the larger butterfly.  I pulled a strand of Whisper White Baker’s Twine through a Blushing Bride button from the Subtles Designer Buttons pack, tied a little bow, then adhered it with a Glue Dot to the butterflies.

Watercolor Wings 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the sentiment from the Watercolor Wings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I inked the dot image from that stamp set in Sahara Sand ink, stamped it on scrap paper once, then stamped it over the sentiment.  I punched the end with the Banner Triple Punch, then adhered it with SNAIL to a strip of Basic Black card stock that I’d also punched with the Banner Triple Punch, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Watercolor Wings 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped two of the smaller butterfly images from the Watercolor Wings stamp set in Sahara Sand, Blushing Bride and Tuxedo Black Memento inks on a Whisper White panel inside the card.

  1. I need to get those stamp sets…..they are on my wish list! So beautifully created, Amy! Your work is always from the heart, and it shows! Awesomeness! You must be having a ball with these new items~ BTW, what do you do with your sets that are retired? If you sell them, I might be interested….

    • Thanks Roberta! I can’t wait to play with a few more new goodies! 😉 I do sell my retired stamp sets…just as soon as I get the list put together. I offer them to my customers first and then to anyone else who might be interested. 🙂

  2. Hi Amy, Pink again and your card is beautiful. I love the way you interpreted the FMS sketch — I’m a newbie and still take the sketches far too literally. Maybe one day I’ll be able to create cards as lovely as yours.

    • Thanks Sheila! Sometimes I do the sketches exactly as they’re shown and sometimes I get a little “creative”. 😉 I did a little stretch on this one because I wanted to use that new butterfly stamp set so badly! 🙂

  3. Amy, this is absolutely splendid! I wasn’t thrilled about the “New” dahlia but… you’ve changed my mind on it! Stunning! Thanks again for joining us at CYCI 🙂 Eva

  4. What a beautiful take on the sketch! I just love the flower/butterfly combination and those colors….fabulous! Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  5. Oh my goodness this stamp set came in the mail yesterday, too! Love, love, love your card Amy and thanks for the inspiration. Pinning it right now!
