Watercolor Christmas Project Kit - Stampin' Up! - Card 2

This one of the four designs in the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  If you don't have a lot of supplies, kits are the way to go.  They are simple enough and not overwhelming.  Additional supplies were the Watercolor Christmas stamp set (shown below), dimensionals, fine tip glue pen, Basic Black in pad.  I also used Fast Fuse tape runner and Wink of Stella.

This card came with the white panel of coloured trees already on the paper.   I added some Wink of Stella to each tree and it gives and nice shimmer to the trees.  I tried to get photos but the lovely shimmer just didn't show up.  

Here is the wood mount version of this stamp set.  It is also available in clear (meaning, you put the stamp on a clear block for stamping).

Next post will show the 3rd design in this project kit.

Watercolor Christmas Project Kit - Stampin' Up! - Card 1

I ordered two kits from the new holiday catalogue.  This one is called Watercolor Christmas Project Kit.  You can find it on page 34.  The photo above shows all the contents of the kit (after taking off of die cut sheets)  All set to get started!  Additonal supplies needed are the co-ordinating stamp set (Watercolor Christmas), demensionals, fine tip glue pen, adhesive (I used Fast Fuse), Basic Black Ink Pad.

Here is my first card.  You can tell it is so easy and quick to put together.  You get enough card bases and supplies to make 5 each of 4 designs.  Although I have made one of each of the supplied designs, I may experiment a little and change the others up!

My next post will feature card #2

Layered Leaves - Paper Pumpkin - Sept. '17

Hooray for September's Paper is gorgeous!

Here are the two projects that can be created with Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit.  It can make 8 pillow boxes and 8 gift cards/envelopes.  Aren't they pretty?!!  I have only made one sample of each because I want to wait and see what others make as alternatives to the original design.  It really is fun to see all the creativity out there!

The card based is embossed with a swirly design which you can faintly see in the photo.  I stamped the envelope with the leaf stamp (stamp set included in the kit)

This sweet pillow box is large enough to fill with small treats, a gift card or gift.  The top of the box is also embossed with a swirly design.  Card stock is nice and sturdy.

So, I started by stamping all the leaves.  However, I was not as successful as those I have watched on YouTube!  The top left show my success...the bottom left shows how my stamping was off with too much border on the right side of the leaf and none on the left.  So to rectify this, I trimmed those down as you can see in those on the right.  In the end it was all good...none ruined and I was happy.  Those that were trimmed down got sponged to soften the look of th edge.

Before I started, I separated all the kit contents.  Here is everything that is in the kit.  Ink spot missing from photo.

Flower Flair - Stampin' Up!

Here's another using the Flower Flair Framelits as a stencil.  These are basic shapes applied to the Hardwood Background stamp.  Rhinestones and a circle punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper add some visual interest to the centre of the flowers.  So easy!  Sentiment is from Watercolor Words.

Leaflets Framelits - Watercolor Words - Stampin' Up!

Here's a lovely fall(ish) card that will get more use out of your thinlits.  I made a template with the vellum card stock and the maple left from the Leaflets Framelits (page193) and sponged on crushed curry, calypso coral and rich razzleberry.  Use any of the sentiments from Watercolor Words (page 135); they're all great!.  I used strands of burlap from the burlap ribbon for a cute bow.

Any framelit can be made into a fun, quick card.  The possibilities are endless.  I'll have more samples soon.

Hello Sunshine - February 2016 Paper Pumpkin - Number of Years - Stampin' Up!

I used the Number of Years stamp set and the co-ordinating framelits to make a quick and easy birthday card.  The card base is from the February Hello Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit.  I snipped off the end of one of the washi tape die cuts from the kit to make it a better size for the sentiment.

I love adding something to the inside of the card when I can.  I used the little flower stamps from the Paper Pumpkin kit to add some focal interest to the inside of the card.
