Started by printing this stamp set in a floral arrangement on a mixed media paper.
I wanted to create a 5 by 7 card because I preferred to paint a bigger flower not tiny floral clusters.
I printed the image in light beige color so I could create a no line coloring effect.
Started water coloring the flower using Karin Watercolor Markers. Pale pink concentrating on the base of the petals and fading towards the tip, leaving a pale wash of color for highlights. After two layers of pink I added a little olive green to the base of some petals and added a light wash of gold on the highlighted areas for a warmth. Finally, I added warm grey wherever it is supposed to be shaded.
The leaves on the top are colored with olive green and the leaves on the bottom are colored with curry.
I added some splatters of white acrylic paint and some gold watercolor paint.
And then, I used the sentiment from Wplus 9. It is a very old set of sentiment stamp. I stamped the sentiment directly on top of the colored image with Versamark ink and embossed using wow gold embossing powder.
For embellishment, I added a few gold sequins from my stash. I then layered this panel on a gold foiled cardstock and then adhered it to a 5 by 7 side folding cardbase made of heavyweight cardstock.
That finishes my card.

Hello there, friends! Welcome to my blog.
I have a fun vibrant watercolor card to share with you today. This card features the latest release by Rachel Vass.
Watercolors are supposed to be soft and delicate, but I like to exaggerate them to make the colors more vibrant. That really satisfies my taste.
This is what I’m talking about. This card features the latest release by Rachel Vass Designs called Summer Bloom. I printed this beautiful flower image on a Mixed Media Paper in light cream ink because I was going for a no-line watercoloring.
I picked up my beloved Peerless Watercolor Sheets for this project. I’ve painted watercolored flowers with just one color, darker tone for the shadows and pale tone for the highlighted areas in the past. For this particular project, I wanted the red to fade into yellow.
I used Royal Crimson and Deep Yellow for the petals. I started with one petal at a time using these two colors trying to blend the colors in the middle of the petals. Then, I added a little bit of Sepia Brown to my Royal Crimson for the darkest corners of the petals. After the first layer was dry, I went with the second more intense coloring. There I achieved my vibrant watercolor card look i was going for.
Finally, for the background I used a light wash of clean water first and then picked up Pearl Gray and painted the area concentrating more towards the flowers and fading away from the flowers.
Once the painting was dry, I used white and black gouache and spattered it all over the painting. How fun!
Diecutting the watercolor piece using the stitched rectangle from Mama Elephant was the next step which then was adhered on to a top folding landscape card made out of Recollections Heavy Wight Cardstock in white.
For embellishment I used some sequins from my stash in silver and clear.
I hope this inspires you to go bold with watercolors and play around to get a vibrant look like this one.
Hello My Lovely Friends!
Today I have a few cards using Perfectly Perfect stamp set that released a while ago. I am using the fun background technique using watercolors and stencils on watercolor paper. And the star of the show is Finetec pearlescent watercolors.
I used one of my favorite stamp set from Altenew called Perfectly Perfect and the coordinating dies for this card. The images from this stamp-set are outline images which you can color as you prefer. I picked watercolor on gold embossed images. I used Prima Watercolors to color the flowers in pinks and oranges and the leaves in different shades of greens.
to color the flowers in pinks and oranges and the leaves in different shades of greens.
Then it was layered with one thin quote of Finetec Pearlescent watercolors in matching shades. I love how these flowers shine in the light. It’s had to capture that in camera but I tried my best.
These look amazing in real life. The gold embossing and the shiny watercolor add the beauty to this card.
Not just the focal images but the background also is one of a kind in these cards. I used watercolor paper which was die cut using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die ( which I use in almost every project). Brushed it with clean water and then dropped some reds browns and green watercolors that match the look of brick on the water. Before it dried I sat Tim Holtz stencils one was wood texture and the other was brick texture of top of it. And let the watercolor do it’s magic. I left it overnight.
The other one is the same technique using the wood texture stencil.
There are no sentiments on these cards as so far. But this is better because I can just stamp and cut a strip of any type of sentiment and pop it on the card whenever I need to give it to anyone.
The card bases are 4 and a quarter inches wide by 5 and a half inches tall standard A2 size card. I tried to match the colors of the card base to complement the color of the flowers.
I am participating in the Altenew Inspiration Challenge January 2019.
Here is the Inspiration Picture:
I also have one more card that I created a while back to participate in the Altenew Inspiration Challenge using this same stamp and die set. Please check out my post if you are interested.
This card is watercolored background with stamped flower image in the front with the message “Thinking of you Mom”
Comes with white plain envelope.
Hello Everyone it’s been a while I updated my blog post. Today I have this fun technique to share with you which a lot of card-makers already know but maybe haven’t used in a while. But for someone new into card-making this can be a totally new technique. The technique of embossing with cover die. I am guest designing for The Flower Challenge #52 for the month of January and this month’s theme is Embossing.
And here is my card.
I got super excited when Simon Says Stamps released the Diecember Release this December. Yes I spelled it right it’s Diecember. So, Diecember is the release of all these beautiful dies from different companies. I picked a few fun ones. To create a fun background I used Chunky Hearts Cover die. this project to cis called
The technique is using your metal cutting dies with the embossing sandwich in your die cutting machine. That is using the soft squishy mat instead of your regular cutting plates. With this technique the die does not cut through the card stock but just leaves an impression on it. I then cut the panel to be 3 and a quarter by 4 and a half inches.
I then added color on the raised hearts with the help of Distressed Oxide ink in Spun Sugar and blending brush from Taylored Expression.
Even though the background was extra special, I still wanted the focus of this card to be my floral clusters.
I stamped the two flowers from the Maker Forte stamp set designed by talented Alex Syberia on watercolored cardstock using Versamark Clear watermark in and embossed with Wow White Embossing Powder. This beautidul flowers are watercolored using Karin marker in color Cherise.
Then I stamped the leaves on vellum using the same sticky ink and embossed using wow gold embossing powder. I then fussy cut the flowers and the leaves with the help of scissors.
Since I love dimension on my cards, I popped some flowers using foam tape and some directly on the panel with liquid glue. Same with the leaves.
For the sentiment of this card, I stamped one of the sentiment that reads “You’re the best ” which is included in the stamp set on a matching color card stock strip and embossed with the same gold embossing powder.
For the final finishing touch I added some pale pink sequins from my stash in the card.
I added this panel on an A2 card base using strips of 3M foam tape at the back.
This finishes my card. Hope this inspires you to create projects using your cover dies.

This is a slimline card with flower image colored with watercolor markers. The image is popped up on foam tape for dimension.
It is aproximately 4 inches by 8 and a half inches in dimension. The gold glitter line around the focal image is added for extra enterest.
The sentiment on this card is printed. The sentiment says “happy Anniversary”
This card is blank in the inside.
Today I have sharing some cards I created using the Alex Syberia Release for June 20. This release so fun with all beautiful images.
This card is created using the Alex Syberia Sunflower digital stamp. I colored this image using copic markers in the shades:
YR04, Y17, Y15, and Y08
And the stem and the leaves in
YG67, YG63 YG17 and YG13
This image of sunflower was just so pretty I didn’t want any distractions on the background. The cover cutting file from Silhoutte Design Store. It is called Pebbles Overlay by Lizzie Mayne. was a perfect backdrop for this beautiful image.
I glued the die cut on a white panel using liquid glue.
There are options to cut the digital images using a few softwares like Silhouette Machine, Cricut Machine or Brother scan and cut. For this particular project I decided to fussy cut it using scissors. Sometimes I find it hard to cut using scissors but most of the time when the image is large enough to cut around it I find it therapeutic.
The sentiment was from the Taylored Expressions stamp and die set. With which you can stamp and cut a bunch of different sentiments at once so it is always ready when you want to create a card.
Finally Embellished with some Nuvo Jewel Drops in clear color as I wanted the focus on the sunflower image.
I used the Dogrose flower from this latest release by Alex Syberia. For my second card I wanted some ombre sky background. When I was getting the image ready for printing I added the ombre background and then printed it.
Now the background was already done, all I had to do was color the image.
I again picked Copic Markers for the coloring. For the flower I used:
RV55, RV42 and R00
For the berries:
And for the leaves and stem believe it or not I only used one color
I colored all the leaves and after the marker was dry I went back and darkened the shadow area with the same color.
About the word Happy, I had downloaded this font from Silhouette Design store and simply typed the word and cut it with gold foil paper. The black offset layer is also cut with the silhouette machine. It is just an offset image of the word happy which I cut out of the black card-stock. I added the Birthday to you underneath to complete the sentiment which was already stamped, embossed and cut in a strip.
I also cut the thin frame border around the image out of the same gold foil card-stock with the help of the silhouette machine. I think that tied in all my elements together.
For the final finishing touch, I added some white gel pen on the highlighted areas on the berries. I added some gel pen on the stamen of the flowers and before the gel pen dried added some gold sparkle embossing powder and heat set it. This way I was able to achieve the metallic look on the center of the flowers.
This completed my second card.
This sea shell border on the slimline format was my favorite in this release. This image was the first one I printed in light ink and started coloring. I was actually going for a almost realistic look while coloring I used watercolor for this one.
I am just a beginner in watercoloring and I am still learning a lot. My weakness is impatience with watercoloring. I cannot wait between layers. I tried my best to achieve the “realistic” look. At one point I was already getting frustrated with the painting which is so not like me. But I kept going and finished it.
The final result was worth the hours I spent on water-coloring this image.
I printed the sentiment in another piece and layered both the sentiment and the watercolored panel onto a teal green card-stock and then mounted it on a slimline base made out of a heavyweight card-stock.
Finally added some flat back green jewels to embellish this card and call it done.
This completed my third and last card for this release. In near future I may want to make a few more cards with this release.
