New Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!
After my classes this week, I finally have time to create with the new Watercolor Wings stamp set from Stampin’ Up! What do you think of this card?
The background is Whisper White cardstock (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) embossed with the new Brick Wall Embossing Folder. I then sponged Cajun Craze and Soft Suede inks across the raised bricks with Sponge Daubers. The sponging will naturally add more ink around the edges of the bricks and very little ink in the grout lines. Your sponging also doesn’t have to be perfect either because bricks have variation in color 🙂
The butterflies are stamped in three steps:
- Bold, solid image is stamped in Soft Sky
- Outline image (on left and right sides) is stamped in Marina Mist
- Detailed image is stamped in Island Indigo
After stamping the 3 different layers, I die-cut the butterflies with the simple, outline framelits (not the detailed framelits). The Bold Butterfly Framelits is for the large butterfly and the Butterfly Thinlits is for the smaller butterfly. The body of the butterflies are stamped after the die-cutting to ensure they are in the right spot. If you stamp the butterfly body before you die-cut, you may be too high or too low and it won’t line up properly.
The greeting is from the Tin of Cards stamp set, stamped in Cajun Craze and die-cut with the Tags & Labels Framelits.
The Watercolor Wings stamp set is available as a bundle with the Bold Butterfly Framelits for a 15% savings but you’ll also want to make sure you have the Butterflies Thinlits as they coordinate together 🙂 The large outline butterfly framelit matches the medium detail butterfly and the small detail framelit matches the small outline butterfly. Isn’t is great when products coordinate together?!
