Thank You Watercolor Cat in Chair

thank-you-watercolor

Great Thank You Card using Watercolor and Brayering the Irresistibly Floral Speciality  Designer Series Paper by Stampin’ Up!   Color choices are endless for this card.  I chose the Sweet Sugarplum for my braying and did my watercoloring with Soft Suede, Sweet Sugarplum and So Saffron.

  1. Card base is 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 folder in half using Soft Suede
  2. First Layer is Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock   4 x 5 1/4
  3. Next layer is the Floral Speciality Designer Series Paper cut at 5 x 3 3/4.   (This paper comes in 6 different designs for 2 sheets of each)  I’ll attach a link to the images later down the end.   The Designer Paper comes white with a embossing design.  I used our Sponge Brayers to get the Sweet Sugarplum color.  Just roll in ink then roll on your paper until you get desired color.  Write off with paper towel to get the white embossed images to show brighter.
  4. Cut another piece of Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock  2 1/4 x 3 1/4.
  5. Cut a piece of Watercolor paper 2 x 3 and stamp your chair with cat from Stampin’ Up! Stamp Set  Mediterranean Moments using StazOn Ink.  Watercolor as desired using your ink pads and aqua painters
  6. Using a scrap of watercolor, stamp greeting.  I used Thank You from Stampin’ Up!s Stamp Set  Gift of Love.  Punch out using a label punch.  Unfortunately, I used a retired punch but we have several other punches that work.

Card I created for the Global Design Project #GDP032

Now that tax season is over for this year,  my goal is to do weekly challenges to share with you all.   This is the one I have created for this week.   I do volunteer tax preparation for AARP 2 days a week so get a little behind on things I like to do, especially these Challenges.  I love the weekly challenges and will be sharing lots more.  This challenge was to copy anything in a card that was created and I loved the layout, so that’s what I copied.     Here’s the steps I followed:

  1. Base of Card is 1/2 of a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of Stampin’ UP!  Island Indigo Card Stock
  2. Cut a piece of Stampin’ Up!s Crushed Curry 4 x 5 1/4 and run through Big Shot using Stampin’ UP’s Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder–a retiring product.
  3. Using a 1 3/4 Scallop Punch, Punch out, cut in half and then highlight edges using sponge daubers and Stampin’ Up!s Island Indigo Ink Pad     Punch is also retiring and will be replaced with Scallop Thinlets.
  4. Stamp Thank You From Stampin’ UP!s stamp set ANOTHER THANK YOU onto a piece of Stampin’ UP!s Whisper White Card Stock   Cut 2 x 2 3/4.  Also a Retiring Stamp Set
  5. To the right side of your card, using mono adhesive, place the scallop half on your card stock.  Layer with dimensionals the Thank You saying.
  6. Punch out a small heart using Crushed Curry Card Stock from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (retiring) and punch out  a 7/8 Scallop Circle (retiring)
  7. Layer small heart on 7/8 scallop circle with adhesive and attach to card with a dimensional.
  8. Finish with a bow made from Whisper White Bakers Twine
