Watercolored Painted Seasons Thank You!

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons GDP176 - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Today’s watercolored card is for this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project. It’s a fun challenge! We are to “case” the designer and this card has a lot to case (copy and share everything!). There are bright layers of watercolors, water drops showing on the watercolors, and the sentiment is heat embossed in white on black card stock. And those are only the parts I copied! 

For my card, I white heat embossed flowers from the new Painted Seasons Sale-a-Bration stamp set and watercolored stripes over them.The colors used were Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, and Pineapple Punch. Then I went back in and added drops of water arbitrarily.

The sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set and it was embossed on Basic Black card stock and then punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I made a little change to the punched label by cutting the top and bottom just a bit to make them flat. It’s a small change but just gives a slightly different shape 🙂

Stampin' Up! Precious Parcel Card - prettypapercards - stampinup

There are so many great Sale-a-Bration items that it was hard to choose, so I’ve used three! The Precious Parcel Card Kit is a vintage card kit and one of my favorite Sale-a-Bration items. For my card today I’ve cut out two of the floral images from the kit and used them as the focus of the card.

The background on the card is a piece of Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. I love both sides of these papers, one side is a butterfly pattern and the other side is a black and white pattern. Here you see the white paper with black dots. Above that is a layer of vellum.

The leaves behind the flowers were punched with the Leaf Punch from the third Sale-a-Bration item, a Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheet. The lighting gives the leaves different shades in the photograph but they blend perfectly with the floral colors!
