Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit Fun

I had a wonderful time at Stampin’ Up! Convention and I will be posting fun news and pictures about it soon.  But first I wanted to share with you the project I’ve been working on today.  At Convention I attended a specialty class where we were able to play with the new Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit. I loved this class and getting to work with the watercolor projects.  I came home and just had to finish all the cute cards.  Now while I can’t show you the cute Card Kit or Stamp set yet I can share with you the finished project which is way better anyway right?

So here’s what I came with.  The kit comes with enough stuff to make 5 each of 4 different designs, however I didn’t want the same cards so I decided to see what else I could make with it.  As you can see there is so much you can do with this kit and I still have stuff left over.

Water Color Winter Cards


So I thought I would showcase up close one of my favorites.  It’s kind of hard to see but the white has a fun would texture background.  Just so you know all these cards were created using just what comes in the kit along with adhesive and ink.  The stamp set is sold separately as well it’s called Watercolor Winter Too.  I’m entering this one in Stampin’ Up!’s contest.  Please do me a favor and help me win by going here and liking and pining my card.

Technique Tuesday 12-9-08

I was trying to decide what to do today for my Technique Tuesday.  I was looking at the retired stamp list and noticed one of my favorite background stamps was on it.  So I decided to show an oldie but goody technique using my favorite background stamp before it is gone for good.  Remember if you don’t already have this great stamp you can get it for 10% off right now.  I learned this technique when I first started in Stampin’ Up! about three years ago.  I think that sometimes we need a refresh on some of the classic techniques.  It’s also a great reminder of how awesome our background stamps are.

This technique is called finger walking.  First you will need to gather your supplies.  For this card I used:
tt-smc-suppliesCanvas Background Stamp
Two Cool Dudes Stamp Set
8 1/2 x 5 1/2 sheet of Bashful Blue paper folded in half for the basic card
3 x 3 1/4 sheet of Brocade Blue paper
3 x 2 3/4 sheet of Whisper White paper
Brocade Blue Classic Stamp Pad
Bashful Blue Classic Stamp Pad
5/8″ Brocade Blue Grosgrain Ribbon
Silver Cord
Stampin’ Dimenionals
Snail Adhesive 

tt-smc-inking-backgroundFirst you will need to ink your background stamp.  I’ve found the best way is to  put the background stamp flat on the table and apply your ink to the stamp.  I used the Brocade Blue because I wanted a darker look.  

tt-smc-finger-walkingFinger Walking- Put your paper on your background stamp with the background stamp still laying down on the table.  Gentle walk your fingers up and down the paper.  The idea is to only get some of the ink on the paper instead of all of it.  This will give it a nice random pattern.   

tt-smc-stamp-ribbonStamp your saying on the bottom center in Brocade Blue.
Tie your ribbon around the card.
Tie the silver cord around the knot in the ribbon. 

tt-smc-blue-snowman Ink your snowman with Bashful Blue and stamp it on the Whisper White cardstock.  The cardstock should be about the same size as the stamp so it make it easy to line up.  Then attach the Whisper White piece to the Brocade Blue piece using snail. 

tt-smc-blue-backPlace 4 Stampin’ Dimensionals one in each corner.  I like to use the Stampin’ Dimensionals when ever I go over ribbon because it makes it much easier to keep it smooth plus I like the dimension.
