BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS WEEK – DAY 3 – TOP PANEL CARD!

Moving along on our Beautiful Moments Showcase Week.  Day 3.  This card is a little different.  I don’t know what you might call it but I call it a Top Panel Card.  I will share the instructions below.

The base card is a little smaller than the standard size allowing you to have a panel overhanging the edge.

Of course, you could do the base any size but for this one, the base card measures 21cm x 10.5cm scored at 10.5cm.  (8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 4 1/4″).  The paper mat is slightly smaller 4mm (1/8″).

The stamped piece is watercolor card cut with the larger die in the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The image was stamped in Black Stazon and coloured with the Watercolor Pencils and washed over lightly with the Aquapainter.  When the watercolor card was cut it left some scratches on the other side.  (maybe because my plates are scratched!).  I didn’t want it showing on the reverse so I adhered a piece of White card on the back.

The sentiment was also stamped on watercolour card to match the stamped piece.  The sentiment is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.  It was stamped in Black Stazon so I could do a light colour with the Daffodil Delight pencil and lightly wash it.  The flourish piece behind the sentiment is from the Flourish Dies.

Check back tomorrow for Day 4 of our Showcase using this lovely set.

BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS WEEK – DAY 2 – FLAMINGO GIRLS!

Day 2 of the Beautiful Moments Week as I showcase this gorgeous stamp set.

Yesterday I shared a card with the sweet girls in the stamp set.  So thought I would share another card with these girls.

This one was stamped in Saddle Brown Stazon on to watercolor paper.  Then it was coloured with the Watercolor Pencils then washed over with the Aquapainter.  I love the softness of it.

I stamped the birds in as an afterthought just before I assembled the card but I was annoyed that I used the Black.  I just grabbed that inkpad without thinking too much. I think it would have looked much better if I had used the Saddle Brown ink again.

I used a piece of Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  I really wasn’t sure what I was going to do with this flamingo piece but the colouring worked really well with it.

Before adhering the stamped piece on to the card I looped around some of the Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon.

Have you seen the images in the Beautiful Moments stamp set?  I will be sharing more this week with it so stop by.
