Stamp Ink Paper: Water Color

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.

The Details:

  • 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.

Stamp Ink Paper: Back To School

This last week there were so many photos on social media of kids returning to school and many were sporting cute little signs.  I wonder of all those photos how many parents left little notes for their kids in the lunch boxes?  I’m willing to bet there are many, but one lucky third grader got this handmade card in their lunch bag.

The Details:

  • Garden Green Cardstock Chalkboard.  Garden Green perfectly resembles a chalkboard and to give it the real chalkboard appearance complete with chalk dust made with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder!  The picture does it no justice!
  • Versamark Pad.  To give the appearance of chalk dust, I took the entire pad of Versamark and lightly dabbed it on the cardstock and sprinkled some of the White Stampin’ Emobss Power.
  • Grade.  The coolest option for this card is that you can make it any grade you’d like.  The Numbers of Years stamp set comes with every number from 0 to 9.

Stamp Ink Paper: A Sketch

Today’s card is special not because it’s a sketch for the Stamp Ink Paper card challenge, but because it was a special order for an old friend I was once deployed with.  He saw a set of custom coffee mugs I made for my brother and his bride for their one year anniversary and asked if I could make a set of mugs for his brother and sister-in-law.

 These are the coffee mugs my friend ordered.

These are the one’s I made for my brother’s one year anniversary.  

Wow! I was very happy when I found out this week’s challenge was a sketch.  I really miss sketches a whole lot.  What kind of challenges do you prefer?  Sketch or Images as inspiration?  Join us this week at the Stamp Ink Paper challenge.

The Details:

  • Cut, Stamp, Punch:  It’s one of the quick methods to quickly make a card.
  • Less is more.  Seriously, I don’t know where to begin to describe how easy it is to make your own handmade card.
  • Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I used a retired piece of DSP as the background, but you can use our new designs or some of your own.
  • Heart Punch!  If you didn’t get the heart punch when it retired, don’t worry, you can use one of the smaller hearts from the Sweet & Sassy framelits dies.  If you want to add an embellishment put a rhinestone on the upper right side of the heart.
