I impressed myself with my water-coloring abilities. I mean, I almost feel wow’d because when it comes to water-color, I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing. I searched for “How to water-color for beginners” on YouTube and that’s it!
You can show us your water-coloring skills over at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge. Craft level doesn’t matter. I’m proof you don’t have to have any experience with water-coloring whatsoever.
How to Get Started. Believe me, I had no idea where to even start! So, I went to YouTube and typed Watercoloring for Beginners and it returned me the list…start there and you’ll soon see that it’s easier than you think. It’s literally how this card happened. he cardstock.
Watercolored Butterfly. I learned about using an acrylic block from a fellow Pal and it was easy too. First, I stamped the rubber with two different colors and then used our spritzer to spray water straight on the rubber. It’ll come out different each time giving it a unique look. Try it.
Black Die-Cut. With the darker butterfly and light background, the black matte and die-cut made the “sunshine” stand out and didn’t overwhelm the entire card, at least that what I thought (HAHA). It really does look so much more beautiful in person.

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.
Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
The die used to make the township silhouette will be in the Holiday catalog which will debut next month. This will be the first of many Christmas cards that I will make for my loved one’s this Christmas, my favorite time of year. To give the yellow illumination in the windows and doors, I used my Aqua Painters with a little bit of Daffodil Delight ink and barely dabbed it on the cardstock. It doesn’t have to be perfect and messy is even better. =) Our Fine Tip glue is perfect for the miniature cut-outs, especially the edges of the roof tops.
The moon is not perfectly round and I used a Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight very lightly to give it a kind of dirty look. I stamped it off to the side to remove a little bit of the ink. Santa and his reindeer are from the Hearts Come Home stamp set, which will also debut next month in the Holiday catalog. The Stamp-A-Ma-Jig came in so handy when stamping Santa and his Reindeer.
Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts”.

My card was made for a friend that is retiring after a 20-year military career. He had planned on taking some time off to travel and do whatever he wanted. However, his skill set is highly sought after and employers are already enticing him with possible employment offers. What to do, what to do! LOL
What makes card-making unique? Everything and nothing at the same time. Its like this, card-making is an individual design, even when designing a card for a design team. You are given a sketch and it’s up to you what you want to do with it. Each card is personal and custom to individual taste. It hold the same meaning as the beauty that is in the eye of the beholder. Play the Stamp Ink Paper sketch challenge here.
Maggie Made Tips:
Make it personal. Many will think that the upside Typset DSP is upside down. But is it really? Or am I making a point to the person who the card will be given to? The red diagonal lines brings attention to the words, “Job Printing”. So, yes it was purposely placed upside. Go on make your cards personalized regardless of what anybody thinks. =)
