Happy Watercolor in Green!

Posted on

Goodness me, I began this post almost 12 hours ago but was side-tracked with non-working speakers on my computer. An easy fix I first thought but I fear after down-loading every possible solution, resetting the computer from three weeks ago and then doing a complete computer file scan, I am still in silence. 🙁

Fortunately when I took my Happy Watercolor stamp set out the other day I had much better luck. I seemed to have challenged myself with these cards also with the color green. Can’t tell you why this happened but as green isn’t a color I would normally chose I obviously pushed myself.

This is my favorite card. I thought I’d CASE’d it from the Spring Catty but perhaps it was another magazine from Stampin’ Up! Regardless, it’s a lovely card where I stamped the poppy twice onto Raspberry Ripple Cardstock then fussy-cut it them both out, adhering one with a dimensional onto the other before adhering flat against the card itself. I also stamped another poppy onto Summer Starfruit Cardstock and fussy-cut just the center to place inside the Raspberry Ripple.Happy Watercolor - Red Poppy - JIFFor the next card I wanted to utilize some of the beautiful Delicate Details Lace Tape. This tape comes in a pack of  two designs and is self-adhesive, making it VERY easy to add a little “something” to your projects without much fuss. For this card I used the Gumball Green Core’dinations but as stamping onto that cardstock isn’t the best, I flipped the cardstock so one could see the texture but wasn’t impeded by it.

Happy Watercolor - White Lace - JIFAs painful as it is to fussy-cut, I couldn’t resist trying it again but this time using the Summer Starfruit Cardstock. Once again, I stamped the poppy in Black StazOn to give a much richer color. The poppies were also stamped in Black StazOn onto the card whereby I “filled” the centers with the fussy-cut images then added a rhinestone and some Dazzling Diamonds. All very effective if I do say so myself, and yes, I do say so myself, lol!

Five Minute Friday!

This card all but made itself. A few weeks back I was once again pondering what could be done with the a couple of the designs in the SU! Print Poetry DSP Stack as the design was almost an embellishment itself.

Typically, as soon as I was actually holding the DSP in my hand I knew exactly what I was going to do. How cute is this? (Until I looked at this photo I hadn’t realized I have yet to dust off the Dazzling Details, oops!)

The Best Things in Life

This is a closer look at the card. The DSP has been trimmed to fit the entirety of the card front. For the sentiment I chose one from the Feel Goods set in the Spring Catty (which finishes next Friday… just sayin‘).

Butterflies and Flowers!

Admittedly it could have been even faster even I had remembered to use the butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri which co-ordinates with the butterfly punch but as luck had it though I had two of these already cut out on my desk so…

Oh how I love butterflies and flowers!

With a couple of glue dots I adhered the butterflies so their wings were three-dimensional then added both some Dazzling Details and Pearl Basic Jewels to each.
