The Lots of Lavender stamp set (147194) is a great way to add simple watercolor stamping to your card projects. This stamp set is available from Stampin’ Up! as a Sale-A-Bration product pick, so you can earn it free with a $50 regular catalog product purchase (until March 31, 2018).
This stamp set is so easy to use. Stamp the outline image onto your cardstock using black (or gray) ink. Then, use the solid stamp images in the set to fill in the outline areas with color. Can’t be much easier than that!!
Here’s a basic card that shows simple watercolor stamping using the Lots of Lavender stamp set.
- Notice how the filled in colors look like watercoloring.
- I used a notecard for this project. I still think the Notecards and Envelopes (131527) are one of the BEST values in the Stampin’ Up! catalog!!
- Sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (143666)
- Colors used: Flirty Flamingo, Tempting Turquoise, Lemon Lime Twist.
Here’s a video that demonstrates how to stamp the image in the card above.
I received this card in a recent swap. It was made by Carmen McNamara.
- Instead of watercoloring, the flower image was colored with Stampin’ Blends. But, it could just as easily been watercolored with the coordinating stamps.
- The textured top and bottom panels were made with Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (141656).
- Flower image and matte were cut using the Lots of Labels Framelits (138281).
- Project colors: Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.
Here’s another simple watercolor stamping card, this time using the second image that’s included in the Lots of Lavender stamp set.
- The flower image on this card is an image in the Lots of Lavender stamp set, but the sentiment comes from the Perennial Birthday stamp set (Wood 145757, Clear 145760).
- Other products used: Petal Pair embossing folder, Linen Thread (104199).
- Project colors are Powder Pink, Wild Wasabi and Sweet Sugarplum.
Here’s my last simple watercolor stamping card for today.
- The idea and technique for this card came from Brian King.
- Here’s how I did the Chalk Marker Technique
I stamped the image with Basic Black ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
Once the ink dried, I colored in all of the images with my White Stampin’ Chalk Marker (132133).
Once that dried, I used Stampin’ Write Markers and colored over the petals with Sweet Sugarplum and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.
