Painted Harvest Watercolored

Posted: Thursday, September 28th, 2017 @ 12:45 pm in Projects | No Comments »

Here’s an easy card for you to make with your Painted Harvest stamp set.  I’m always amazed at how different stamping can look on Watercolor Paper.  I stamped, then went over the flower image very lightly with a slightly damp Aquapainter.  The colors just started to bleed for an interesting effect. *****ALERT – There are […]

****ALERT – The Cat Punch that I used in previous posts is on the LOW INVENTORY List**** So I would order it today if you need it for Fall projects, just in case the next shipment is delayed. In the City (get it free – see below) has some cute little trees that you can […]

This is my last set of Cat Punch cards ( no promises).  It was fun, but there are more new Holiday Catalog products to play with. The cat was punched right out of the sponged moon! Some easy thank you cards.  These are actually 5-1/4 x 4″ panels, so they can be adhered to a […]

Cat Punch – Part 2 – Marbled Cats

Yes, more Cat Punch projects – it is just too fun.  I was playing with the Marbled Background stamp – it’s an easy way to make patterned cats.  You can also draw lines with watercolor pencils and pull them out with blender pen, but I thought this would be easier. And here are my marbled […]

I spent the weekend at a craft retreat, and the cat punch was one of the first items I packed.  Here are just a few of the cards I made with this cute punch.  You will want this punch for Halloween projects for sure, but I can see that it would be fun play with […]

The Merry Patterns stamp set is brand new just for Stampin’ Up! hosts.  I had so much fun playing with it last weekend.  The outline and pattern stamps will give you so many options – I can tell this will be a favorite. For my first 2 cards I used the deer stamps.  The outline […]

Eclipse Card Part 3

Help!  I can’t stop making eclipse cards.  Something about this easy to create, 3D effect is addicting. Today it was Spooky Cat and the Cat Punch bundle.  I knew as soon as I saw the cat punch that I would have to have it.  Not that I am especially a cat person, but the punch […]
