I used the Stampin’ Up! Mediterranean Moments stamp set from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog and the Delicate Details stamp set that will be available to earn for free during Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Sale-a-bration to create my card to share today.
I started by stamping the image from the Mediterranean Moments stamp set (available Jan 4) in Basic Gray Archival Ink on a panel of watercolor paper. I used the awesome new Stampin’ Up! Watercolors Pencils (available Jan 4) to color the stamped images and I used a Blender Pen to blend and completely color the images.
I let the panel dry completely and then I stamped the sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink over the lower section. I adhered the watercolored panel to a panel of Basic Gray card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive and then to an Old Olive card stock panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I placed the stamped panel over a Bermuda Bay card front and traced lightly around it with a pencil. I removed the panel and then used the pencil lines as my guide to stamp the image from the Delicate Details stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 4) around the card front in Bermuda Bay ink. I did use a Post-It Note to mask of the ends of the image on the top and bottom so that it wouldn’t go past the area of the frame when I stamped it.
I erased the pencil lines from the card front and adhered the layered panel with SNAIL. I added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel next to the sentiment to finish it.
I inked the image from the Mediterranean Moments stamp set in Basic Gray Archival Ink, stamped it on scrap paper twice and then stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
Here is a little peek at the two upcoming stamp sets that I used on my card today.
