Good Morning Magnolia

At my class last Thursday night we played with 3 different techniques using Embossing Powder.  I was reminiscing about using a frying plan to heat the embossing powder when I first started stamping.  Seems a long time ago now and the Heat Tool makes life so much easier.

Here's the card we made using Watercolour Paper and AquaPainters after embossing with White Embossing Powder.  The Good Morning Magnolia stamp is a perfect size for water colouring and it makes a stunning card!





Instructions

  1. Cut Mossy Meadow cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to make card base
  2. Cut Petal Pink cardstock 5 1/4" x 4"
  3. Cut Watercolor paper 5" x 3 3/4"
  4. Rub the Embossing Buddy over the Watercolour Paper to remove static.
  5. Stamp the Magnolia stamp on the Watercolor Paper using Versamark.
  6. Sprinkle embossing powder to cover stamped image and shake off excess.  
  7. Heat the embossing powder using the Heat Tool.  Hold the Heat Tool in one place until the powder starts to melt - it will turn from dull to shiny - and then move the heat tool over the whole image until it is all melted.
  8. Let cool for a 1-2 minutes
  9. Use 1-2 drops of Petal Pink re-inker and mix with a few drops of water from Aqua Painter.
  10. Paint the flower
  11. Use 1-2 drops of Mossy Meadow re-inker and mix with a few drops of water from Aqua Painter.
  12. Paint the leaves
  13. Stamp the sentiment in the top left corner using Mossy Meadow ink.
  14. Adhere the Watercolor Paper to the Petal Pink cardstock.
  15. Adhere to the card base.

Come Sail Away

I've been waiting to get out sailing on our boat all summer - for one reason or another we haven't been out as much as we'd like.  We decided that we go sailing as much as we could in August.  I couldn't help but make a card featuring the Sailing Home bundle.

I love the new Pigment Sprinkles.  They are concentrated watercolour pigment crystals that you mix with water.  For this card I spritzed my watercolur paper with water and then lightly sprinkled some crystal over the wet parts.  By moving the paper around I was able to get varying amounts of colour - most of my pigment was concentrated on the bottom right corner.



As I look at my card, it makes me feel of a stormy day with lots of wind for the sail boat.  I hope that we don't get caught out in a storm!

Instructions

  1. Cut Night of Navy card stock 4 1/4" x 11" and fold in half to make card base
  2. Cut Watercolour paper 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (I cut this down after I've coloured it).
  3. Spritz watercolour paper in bottom right corner
  4. Lightly sprinkle Bermuda Bay pigment over wet corner.  Be gentle with the pigment, you can always add more
  5. Spritz lightly with water and move paper around to spread the ink.  Dab the excess water with a wet wipe.
  6. Let dry and then trim to 4" x 5 1/4"
  7. Adhere to card base using Snail
  8. Stamp sailboat on scrap of Whisper White card stock using Night of Navy ink
  9. Cut out using die and Big Shot
  10. Adhere to card base using Dimensionals
  11. Wrap twine around card base at top twice and tie a small bow.
