Chic Boutique Watercolor

This is a new set called Chic Boutique and when I saw it I knew it would make some pretty cards! Here, the card base is Basic Black layered with Lovely Flowers DSP (2 different patterns-one in Melon Mambo, one in Old Olive).

The image layer is watercolor paper, which I stamped with Black Stazon and used my Markers and Aquapainter to watercolor the images. For a tutorial on watercoloring with markers, see here. I also used a mask here to stamp the dress forms. I stamped the center one first (Pink/Melon Mambo), then I stamped the image again onto scrap paper and cut it out to make the mask. I placed the mask over the image I just stamped, and overlapping it a bit, stamped again to the right of the main image. This made the Crushed Curry/Yellow form. Without moving the mask, repeat again on the left side to make the Old Olive/Green form.

To embellish the image layer I added 3 Square Fire Rhinestone Brads in pink and mounted the watercolor paper to a Basic Black panel using dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Chic Boutique stamp set also, and I used my Melon Mambo marker to ink it up and stamp onto Watercolor paper matted with Basic Black.

Seasonal Scallops

Since I was playing with the Say it with Scallops set (see previous post) I made two similar cards. Again, very simple, and I must have autumn on the mind because these are rather fall-ish.

The first one (left) uses Creamy Caramel for the base, layered with Whisper White. I stamped the “hi” stamp in Red Craft ink and clear embossed using Clear E.P. I punched it out using the Scallop Square Punch and adhered it to the base using a dimensional. The other three scallop squares are Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, and Old Olive. Before adhering the Whisper White layer to the base, I tied some Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the card stock.

Next, I flipped the card on its side and used basically the same colors in a different configuration. The background here is Very Vanilla, and this time, I used Pumpkin Pie Craft ink for the “hi” stamp and clear embossed it. The other card stock colors were close to cocoa, old olive, and real red. Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon tied up the side completes the look.

Crushed Curry Congrats

This card was made using Say it with Scallops, and while I’ve used other stamps from the set, I’ve never used this specific stamp before. It makes a fun card, especially for a graduation.

I used Crushed Curry card stock for the base, and a strip of Whisper White layered with Bermuda Bay textured card stock runs across the front. The Old Olive circle was punched out using my Marvy Mega Circle Punch. On top of that is the “Congrats” stamp from Say it with Scallops which I colored using my Bermuda Bay marker and the star was colored with Melon Mambo marker. The star is also popped up with a glue dot. Finally, the sentiment was punched out using the Scallop Square Punch (which coordinates with this stamp set) and attached using dimensionals.
