Beauty Abounds Watercolor Technique

Hello Peeps!

It has been quite a while since I was last here.  Sorry about that.  I’ve been really busy doing life!  🙂  But today I have a video for you on a pretty simple watercolor technique that anybody should be able to do and I mean anybody because if I can pull it off…anyone can.  Actually we did this technique at my April card club on Saturday and NO ONE’S  turned out bad!  Each piece was unique in its own way and ALL were very beautiful!  The ink colors I used in the watercolor are retiring along with the Berry Burst and Powder Pink Paper.  The watercolor paper is retiring as well, but Stampin’ Up! is not getting rid of it entirely.  They are bringing out another version.  If you still have questions after you watch the video, let me know.

A few items you will need when watercoloring that are not listed in any of the supply lists are a clip board, blue painters tape, paper towel,  and small trays to hold your ink.  I used the tops to embellishment container.  I always save the container when I’ve used up an embellishment.  They have come in handy for a multitude of uses.

I am also sharing photos of the other three cards we made at club along with their supply lists.  If you have questions on those you can email me about them as well.

New Year New Catalog!

Happy New Year!

A week ago, our new Occasions Catalog went active along with this year’s Sale-a-bration.  That’s me…usually a day late and a dollar short!  You don’t know what Sale-a-bration is?  Well, let me tell you…for every $50.00 you spend in regular product from any of our active catalogs, you can get an item in our Sale-a-bration catalog FREE!  Now that’s a deal, if you ask me.

You say you don’t have TIME to stamp?  Well the cards I’m sharing today took me less than thirty minutes…NOT EACH…but for ALL THREE!  That’s right, they are simple but still beautiful.  it just goes to show you don’t have to spend a lot of money to make a nice card and you don’t have to have all day to create one; just thirty minutes and you can make three!

The first two cards are for Valentine’s Day and are made with sets that are in the current Occasions Catalog.  The last card is made with a set that I got for free which is in Sale-a-bration.  And if you know me, if there is a rooster set available, it is the first one I will choose because I am a chicken lover!  In October my sister took a count of how many rooster/chickens I have in my home in some form or another and I think she stopped counting at around 97.  I know…it’s a sickness.

So here are the cards that I created with plain white paper, ink and a stamp set.  Hope you like them.

Happy Stamping!
