Watercolor Technique Sympathy Card


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!

Watercolor Technique for Cards


Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Hello Friends, 

Making Sympathy Cards is tough but this Watercolor Technique is beautiful. Who says Sympathy Cards need to be boring? After completing the watercolor technique, I stamped winter trees from the Winter Woods stamp set to finish my scene.  Then, I layered the whole thing with In Good Taste Designer paper and other fun card elements.

Winter Woods Stampin' Up!
Watercolor Technique for Cards

Spritz watercolor paper to get it damp, then using a water painter swoosh layers of Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry inks.  Hint: be sure to overlap layers of ink.  Keep applying ink until you are satisfied.  Completely dry using heat tool or set aside and come back later.

Next, with your fingers splatter water droplets across your watercolor.  Let sit for a few minutes, then blot up excess water.  Allow to completely dry.

Dip water painter in a bit of Soft Suede ink then flick your painter with your finger to make splatters.

After the watercolor and splatters are completely dry, stamp your winter trees using Early Espresso ink.  Hint:  Stamp using the Stamparatus for a great stamped image.

Warm & Toasty Stampin' Up!

Warm & Toasty by Stampin' Up!

Warm & Toasty Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

'Tis the Season for making handmade Christmas Cards.  Did you know that there are only 65 days left until Christmas?  Today's card uses the adorable Warm & Toasty Stamp set.  What's not to love about these adorable images!  Are you ready for some Card Making Tips and Tricks?

Warm & Toasty Stampin' Up!

Robin's Card Tip #1

To make the reindeer stick out above the curvy Freezin' Friends Die, trim around the top of the reindeer first the tuck the die behind and cut as usual.  Note:  The Freezin' Friends dies actually bundles with the Freezin' Fun stamp set.  Don't be afraid to let your dies cross over to other projects and stretch your Crafting dollars.

Robin's Card Tip #2

How many times have you completed a gorgeous card only to realize that an ink smudge has marred your card?  Turn that bummer into an Ooh, LaLa!  Try adding an addition element such as a bow or a sequin.  There's an ink smudge under that lovely bow.

Robin's Card Tip #3

Trim your ribbon into slendor strip and fray just a bit for less bulk and to use wider ribbon on cards.  My 1" Shade Spruce ribbon was much too wide for my card, but with a little tweeking it was perfect.
