Count my Blessings Watercolor Card, Holiday Catalog Now Live!

This is another beautiful stamp set in the Holiday Catalog. Its on page 50. My Stamp Club Gals will be making this one too! I’ve got a 1 3/4″ strip of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper on the left side. I stamped the flower image onto Watercolor Paper with Black Archival Ink twice, and cut one of each of the flowers out. This really makes the flowers pop. I water colored with my Aqua Painter and the ink from my lid. I used Crushed Curry for the flowers and Pear Pizazz for the stems and leaves.

You might be wondering, how I got a “rectangle” from the Stitched Shapes Framelits?
We don’t have any “rectangles” in that set. Let me show you how. Don’t forget to “wink” the cut out flowers with Wink of Stella.

Easy peasy! Don’t add the second layer of flowers until after you do the die cutting. Then I added Tombow Liquid adhesive, just to the bottom of the flowers. After it dries you can bend the petals back a little. Like I did in this next photo.

Add the Crushed Curry backing to your “rectangle” and you are ready to put your card together. Add the Designer Paper to the left side (or the right), of your Pear Pizzazz card base, then the beautiful 3/8″ Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon.

Punch two of the Vellum Leaves with the new Leaf Punch and add some “Wink of Stella” to them both. Add these both to the back of your “rectangle” with a Glue Dot. Use Dimensionals to pop up your flower image and you are done! I forgot one thing. I put the greeting inside (didn’t take a photo). Its one of the greetings from this set and says, When I count my blessings you are on the top of my list. Love that!
