Hello and welcome to our January 2017 Inspiration week. This week we are releasing 2 new stamp sets and a new sentiment die cut. All our stamp sets are available now in our store and also at some of your favorite stores!
Today we are showcasing a new 3×4 stamp set called Blessed Stamp Set! This is going to be our Free Stamp of The Month as well! Yay! Purchase $50 or more with us and we will add this stamp set to your order for free!
For my first card today, I grabbed our Fresh Bouquet stamp set and the new Blessed Stamp Set. I began by stamping my bouquet in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto Arches Hot Press Watercolor Paper. I then grabbed my Winsor and Newton professional watercolor paints. If you would like to learn more on how I watercolor, make sure to check out our free Online Classes. I have a great video on materials, techniques etc. You can click here to visit our page.
For perfect and straight stamping, I grabbed my mini Misti and some Versafine black ink. I also used some lovely Ranger Star Dust Sticklers. I love this product, It gives you a 3d dot without the messy glue.
For my second card, I am using our Plumerias & Butterflies with the new Blessed stamp set. I bought myself some gouache for Christmas and I have fallen in love! I am practicing and practicing so that I can do a video tutorial on this beautiful new medium. I am using Arches Hot Press Paper. I have found with practicing that again the quality of watercolor paper does matter. I began by stamping my flowers using Tattered Rose Distress Ink.
After the watercolors dried, I then stamped my sentiment from todays new stamp set. I love all the various ways that you can stamp these sentiments. I have also added some sequins onto my card for just a little more dimension.
For my last card, I originally had this black sentiment for the above card but after coming back to the card, I just didn’t love it. So I took this sentiment and created this simple card instead. I began by white embossing the sentiment and then grabbing some scrap paper and burlap.
I used our new Paper Roses and also some mixed flowers for a lovely border around the sentiment. The “xo” in the bottom corner was used from our My Valentine’s stamp set and gold embossing powder. I also used some old heart punches and glitter paper for my hearts.
I hope you have enjoyed my release cards today. I have had such a lovely time painting and creating! We will be back tomorrow with our Love Sentiments stamp set & coordinating Die! I can’t wait to share ALL the gorgeous inspiration from the designers!
