Today, I'm sharing with you card 4 of 6 water color cards that I made using the new Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set called Flowering Fields and the new SU 2016 Occasions Catalog Botanical Builders Framelits Dies. Let's take a look at my fourth card:
I started out by making my A2 card bases with SU's Basic Black Card Stock and I rounded each corner.
For the tag, I cut a piece of SU's Whisper White Card Stock at 4 1/4" x 2" and punched one end using SU's Ornate Tag Topper Punch.
The panel behind the tag is SU's Cajun Craze Card Stock cut at 4 1/4" x 2 1/4" and I rounded each corner.
I stamped the flowers and butterfly from SU's new Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Flowering Fields in SU's Basic Black Archival Ink. I then used my Aqua Painter and SU's Cajun Craze, Old Olive and Crushed Curry Inks to water color the images. They are awful small images to water color; but, I think I did pretty good.
I layered two different SU Designer Series Washi Tapes (Retired) on the bottom of my tag.
Since SU doesn't sell a Cajun Craze color ribbon or trim, I took some SU Crochet Cotton Trim (Retired) and spritzed it with a mixture of Rubbing Alcohol and SU Cajun Craze Ink in a spritzer. I spritzed the trim twice and heat set it with my SU Heat Tool. I thread the trim through the hole in the top of the tag and tied it in a knot. I then took some SU Basic Black Baker's Twine and tied a bow around the Ribbon.
I adhered the tag to the Cajun Craze panel and then to the card base all using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I die-cut some different leaves and flowers from the new SU Botanical Builder Framelits Dies using SU's Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango Card Stocks. I stamped some of the leaves using SU's coordinating stamp set called Botanical Blooms.
The sentiment was stamped from the new SU 2016 Occasions Catalog Bear Hugs Stamp Set.
I added some of the new SU 2016 Occasions Catalog It's Your Party Enamel Dots in Crushed Curry to the flower centers.
For the inside of my card, I cut a piece of SU Whisper White Card Stock at 4 1/2"x 3 1/2". I used a scrap of SU Cajun Craze Card Stock which I trimmed to 4 1/2" x 1/2" and adhered it to the left side of the Whisper White piece. I then rounded all 4 corners and adhered it to the inside of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose glue.
I also added a flower and a leaf stem that I die-cut from the Botanical Builders die and a 1/4" circle punched with SU's 1/4" Hand Held Hole Punch to the center of the flower.
The sentiment is from SU's new 2016 Occasions Catalog Stamp Set called Suite Sayings.
I'll share card 5 with you tomorrow so please stop back!
