Watercolor Words- We Create Blog Hop

Welcome to the April 2018 Edition of the We Create Bloggers Step It Up Blog Hop, and Happy Easter Fool's Day!!! Our suggested themes for this month are: Birthdays/Signs of Spring. My card this month features the Watercolor Words photopolymer stamp set, and could actually fit in either theme.

I stamped the accent flowers using the Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad, onto Whisper White Card stock, for a contrasting pop from the Peekaboo Peach Card Stock layer to give the card a bright, fresh, Springy look. To get the centers of the flowers, I stamped an extra set of them on Whisper White Card Stock, with the Crumb Cake Ink Pad...then I cut out the centers and adhered them to the centers of the peach/white flowers. The same flower image was stamped using the VersaMark Ink Pad on that peach layer, to give it a more subtle tone-on-tone background design. The card base is Crumb Cake Card Stock, which coordinates with the greeting, which was stamped with the coordinating Crumb Cake Ink Pad.

The Watercolor Words photopolymer stamp set includes several sayings and images that can be used together, and you could easily turn this card very specifically into a Birthday card by stamping the "happy birthday" greeting from the stamp set in place of the "you're the best" greeting that I used. I offered this card in a class recently at my local library branch, and also let them choose to substitute in the "just for you" greeting if they wanted. Any of the sentiments from the set would work on this card, but I didn't want to overwhelm with that many choices!

  1. Happy Easter! This is so cute! I always forget about using Versamark just to stamp with. I always save it for embossing, but this really shows up nicely.

  2. I love these colors together. Such a cheerful card. Thanks for sharing!

  3. This is a really cute way to add a bit of layering! I like this!
