Best Catch

Masculine card featuring Stampin' Up's Best Catch stamp set and Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies.  Silver heat embossed and water colored with an aqua painter.

Best catch is the perfect stamp set for the man/men in your life.  I normally struggle with masculine cards, however this set made it easy!!

Masculine card featuring Stampin' Up's Best Catch stamp set and Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies.  Silver heat embossed and water colored with an aqua painter.

First, I stamped the background with the Crackle stamp set with VersaMark ink on Shimmery White card stock, sprinkled it with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set.  I added some water color using an Aqua Painter and Coastal Cabana, Mint Macaron, and Night of Navy inks.  I stamped the fish on Shimmery White card stock as well and followed the same process.  The Catch of the Day Thinlits Dies made it quick and easy to crop.

The inside of the card has compliments the card with a touch of the same technique.

PEACEFUL WREATH

Here is another stamp set that coordinates with Stampin’ Up’s Wonderful Wreath Framelits.  I embossed the wreath with Silver Embossing Powder and watercolored with our Aqua Painters with  Real Red, Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive.  I have added the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum Silver Paper a Pear Pizzaz bow.

Did you notice the red berries?  I started with our Basic Pearls and colored them with a red Sharpie Marker.

LIGHTHEARTED LEAVES

One of my favorite techniques is heat embossing.  However, when you add watercoloring with our Aqua Painters the end result is simply beautiful!!

I stamped the images with Versa Mark, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set the images.  I colored them in with Cajun Craze, Tangelo Twist and Delightful Dijon.  No need to fussy cut out the leaves, Stampin Up has matching framelits.
