Day 3 Cards #1

Basic Stamping with Watercolor (a video by Jennifer Rzasa)

I used my favorite two-step stamp by Stampin Up called Too Kind and three colors of distress ink by Tim Holtz in rusty hinge, victorian velvet, and peeled paint. I also incorporated my Stamp-a-magig by Stampin up as well. I used some Very Vanilla 1/8 inch Taffeta Ribbon also by Stampin Up and some My Minds Eye record it collections brads called charm. Finally my sentiment stamp set by Simon Says Stamp called Best Mom Ever that I received in a 2013 card kit and my background paper is from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan 6X6 paper pad by American Crafts.

I am really loving this class, I am getting Mothers Day cards done and building up my stash as well as learning new techniques. A big plus to this class is I am really digging into my stash and using things that I have had and not used at all yet and even using up alot of my scrap neutral card stock.

 ink up the stamp.
 I had about 3 layers of paper towels down and sprayed the stamp about 4 times.
 coolness, what an awesome way to stretch your stamps, especially the two-step ones.
 Stamp position is a must I love this thing.
All done, love the way it turned out, in the end I added some wink of stella glitter pen in clear.

Used some extra pattern paper on the inside this time.


  1. Really lovely card, caught my attention right off in the gallery! I got this stamp set last month and think it's perfect for the watercolor stamping!

  2. Your flowers are really, really nice!
