Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Place for the Ink It! Stamp It! Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop!  I was so honored when Carolina Evans asked me to join this international design team blog hop.  This is a group of amazing stampers so be sure to hop through the full line up below so that you can see all of the projects!

I chose to use the Peaceful Place stamp set and I did a little watercoloring with a Blender Pen for my project.

I started by stamping the image from the Peaceful Place stamp set in StazOn Jet Black ink on a panel of Watercolor Paper.  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in the following colors to add some ink to the image: Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, Gray Granite, Pear Pizzazz, Shaded Spruce, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.

Once I had the basic color on the panel, I used a Blender Pen and colored over the image to soften the lines and do a little shading.  After I’d finished coloring, I adhered the “framing” around the edges with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  The frame was cut from a panel of Wood Textures DSP.  Once I had the frame adhered, I adhered the watercolor panel to a Shaded Spruce card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Enjoy Life photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of White Vellum card stock, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  I punched the bottom of the panel with the Banner Triple Punch and then adhered it with Glue Dots hidden under the button.  I tied a bow with Linen Thread through a True Gentleman Button and adhered it with a Glue Dot to the sentiment banner to finish the card front.

I stamped the leaves from the Peaceful Place stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.
