Stampin’ Up! Bright Wishes Happy Birthday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bright Wishes stamp set to watercolor a birthday card to share with you today.  You can pick up this awesome stamp set when the new catalog ordering opens up tomorrow!

I started by stamping the image from the Bright Wishes stamp set (available June 1) in Basic Gray Archival ink on a panel of watercolor paper.  I used Soft Sky and Wild Wasabi inks along with an Aqua Painter to add a little color to the background.

Then I watercolored the rocks and roof with Smoky Slate ink and the wood with Soft Suede ink.  I colored the rope, bucket, leaves and flowers with Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron and Lemon Lime Twist using a Blender Pen.

I let the image dry completely and then stamped the sentiment from Feather Together photopolymer stamp set in Tranquil Tide ink on the watercolor panel.  I adhered the watercolor panel to a panel of Tranquil Tide ink with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then to a Flirty Flamingo card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a silver enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack next to the sentiment to finish the card front.

I inked the wishing well image from the Bright Wishes stamp set with Soft Suede ink, stamped it on scrap paper twice and then stamped it on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.  I added the sentiment from that stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink over the first image to finish the inside of the card.

You can see a list of supplies used, including card stock cuts, to create this card at the very bottom of this blog post.

  1. Pretty card, Amy. Love your coloring, and the background wash is so subtle, but really enhances the image.

  2. So delightful! Your watercoloring is so pretty and that sentiment fits perfectly with its whimsical-style letters. Pretty inside too.

  3. Absolutely beautiful Amy!! It makes me feel tranquil and peaceful, even though I’m at the last minute making end of year teacher cards, lol!! Your card made me pause and just be still for a moment ☺
