Water Colouring at Coffee and Cards
Love What You Do!
I have used this stamp set so much for "stepped up" cards. I love the flower image so much. If you look on Pinterest or You Tube you can find a TON of examples. What I hadn't realised at first was that this was also the perfect set for a clean and simple one layer card! And thus perfect for Coffee and Cards.
This card is perfect for beginners or those just building their supplies. It uses one Stamp Set, a Memento Black ink pad , a little water spritzer and three Stampin Write Markers. Add in your card base and layer and that is it!
I have used the back ground stamp in the set to colour onto in three horizontal stripes using the three different colour markers, spritzed lightly with water and stamped onto the Whisper White card stock. Leave until dry (just a few moments) and then stamp the flower image and sentiment in Memento ink over the top. It creates a lovely water colour effect behind the flowers.
The ladies made some beautiful cards!
All that is left to finish it off then is to add a little of the same colours to the petals.
Don't forget to stamp on your envelope too. None of my ladies send cards with naked envelopes these days 😀Though I did forget to snap a pic of their envelopes.
It's great to demonstrate a beautiful card using just a few products - you don't have to own everything to make something gorgeous especially when Stampin Up make everything to match.
Here are all the products we used to make the card with clickable links to my online shop
I use more products and demonstrate techniques at my Monthly class to make more "stepped up" cards. Here are a couple of examples using the same stamp set .
This one uses the Jar Of Love stamps and Die set too.
We have added in the pretty Share What You Love DSP on these ones.
This one has the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder which is part of the Suite
I have added a die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlit Dies and sponged it to match the flower here.
It really is the perfect set for crafters of all abilities - or stash size! You can use it with minimal supplies or add on to it. Either way you will end up with beautiful cards.
