If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to check that out here! Today I’m going to share the other 2 cards in the kit as well as a few other samples and ideas! Have I said I loved these cards yet? I love these cards! 🙂
Watercoloring this little sled in Cherry Cobbler was super fun! It brought back memories of sledding down the hills on our runner sled as a kid! 🙂 Ahhhh! The card base already had the white dots on the upper half of the card. I adhered the vellum snowflake from the kit with some Snail Adhesive in the center. I didn’t worry about putting a lot of adhesive on it because I wanted it to flare on the ends and it was going to be on the bottom layer. Next you will add the sled and then the Bermuda Bay banner. I stamped the greeting from the Watercolor Winter Too Stamp Set! Then I added the gold strip and the Baker’s Twine that comes in the kit! Finish it off with a few sequins for a little bling!
Many of my stampers who come to my classes say mine is always perfect and how come their’s doesn’t look like mine…..can you find my mistake? The snowflake is cut off on top! See everyone makes mistakes and I would say most don’t even notice! I forgot to add the vellum snowflake until after I put the letters on and there was no way I was adjusting them since it took me a year and half to put them on! This was my favorite card in looks but least favorite in patience. Wowza those letters weren’t easy! The directions say to color them with Bermuda Bay and then while they are still intact on the sheet, add adhesive and lay the twine down. Then you can pop the letters through and they are all set on the twine. I’m going to bet I used too much glue, didn’t wait to let it dry long enough or all of the above but that didn’t work. 🙂 Once it was all over though it created a fabulous card!
Now this card I created with the leftover vellum piece that the snowflake was cut out of. I used my Sponge Dauber to color it with Bermuda Bay Ink and it turned out fabulous! Be gentle around the tips of the snowflake. I adhered that to a Whisper White card base, added some White Satin Ribbon and a greeting from Endless Wishes Stamp Set!!! Love it!
Here are few other cards that I created a little differently. To be honest, I didn’t like that the twine was more vanilla and the cards were white so I didn’t use it and will save it for another project! I love how these all turned out!!!! I hope that you try out the Watercolor Winter Simple Created Kit and please share your ideas and samples with me! I would love to see what you come up with!
