Secret Garden Stamp Set Stampin’ Up!

 SECRET GARDEN STAMP SET – STAMPIN’ UP! 

Secret Garden Stamp Set and Watercoloring

 I certainly hope that Stampin’ Up!’s Secret Garden Stamp Set is carried over in the upcoming 2013-2014 Annual Catalog.  I have found myself gravitating to this stamp set quite often when making cards.

Today’s card features two stamp images from the Secret Garden Stamp Set.  I stamped the floral and leaves images from the stamp set onto a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Watercolor Paper.

Secret Garden Stamp SetI stamped on Daffodil Delight and Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and cut out the three butterflies on the card front.  The butterflies are from the Kindness Matters Stamp Set.

The beautiful flower that is featured on the card front was stamped on the watercolor paper using Jet Black StazOn Ink.  I then water colored it with the Stampin’ Up! Rich Razzelberry Classic Ink.  After water coloring the flower, I masked it and stamped the stem and leaves from the Secret Garden Stamp Set. Secret Garden Stamp Set - Water ColoringThe sentiment, Happy Birthday (from the Apothecary Stamp Set), was stamped onto the watercolor paper with VersaMark Ink and then embossed with Gumball Green Embossing Powder.  I hope you enjoy it.

Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set

GREETING CARD KIDS STAMP SET

 Living in FL does not allow me to enjoy the beautiful Fall season that I was so use to when I lived in N.VA.  Every year at this time, I have my friend, Sandy, send me pictures of her beautiful surroundings in PA so I can enjoy the Fall colors.  Missing the Fall colors prompted me to produce the following card made with the Stampin’ Up! Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set.  Also, I decided to take a stab at water coloring.  Please let me know what you think!
