Good morning, all! I’m up bright and early to bring to you some card making goodness. Okay, we all know this post was scheduled. But let’s pretend I’m up and functioning at eight in the morning. Having a baby who is teething and waking up every few hours in the night is tiring! But he’s so cute and huggable I don’t mind. ❤️
It’s blog hop time! Gina K. Designs just had a fabulous release, and my newest stamp set is part of it! This set is called ‘Just Because’, because it doesn’t have a clear theme. It features a lot of general greetings that are perfect for cards, and the lettering is done in a few different styles. I hope you love it as much as I do! I would love to know which of the greetings is your favorite! I love- “I sent a card instead of a text… Clearly I love you the most.” 🙂
I did a dip-dye look with some watercolor card stock after I heat embossed the lettering with Champagne embossing powder. This is seriously the best embossing powder ever!
This card is similar, but instead of dip-dye I painted stripes in green watercolor over watercolor card stock that I tore. The torn edges add character and detail to the card.
Clearly I have enjoyed using this Love Your Face greeting! It’s just such a good one, and nice and large. Also really into the stripes. More stripes up ahead.
Aren’t stripes just fun? And let’s be honest, super easy to paint. This kind of card is easy to create when you’re in a hurry. The stamp does the lettering for you, and anyone can paint some stripes.
I painted some simple loose florals (that ended up looking like poinsettias) around my ‘Sending hugs’ lettering. If I were to recreate this card, I would leave more space around the lettering so that it would read easier.
My favorite thing to paint after stripes is leaves. It is so relaxing!
This card’s lettering is easier to read because the leaves are not covering it. Note if you make this card- leave space for the lettering! 🙂
This tiny ‘hello’ or the circle ‘hi’ are a perfect center for a wreath! I used the Original Wreath Builder stamp set and Autumn stamp set to create this green wreath using Fresh Asparagus and Grass Green ink.
And to top it off, I made a card using Hannah’s absolutely gorgeous new set, Kindness Frame. These flowers are just breathtaking. No-line watercoloring is her specialty, and I’m glad I was able to attempt it with her beautiful set.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my set and the cards I’ve made with it! Up next in our hop is Hannah, and I can guarantee you she’ll have some beautiful watercolor samples. Make sure to comment for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Gina K. Designs!
