Stampin’ Up!’s new mini is due to come out on Saturday and it features a new floral set called Watercolor Trio. I usually don’t get these florals; I just can’t seem to make them work, but after seeing so many pretty samples, and since I really DO like the sentiments that come with it, I broke down and got it. Already I’ve made three cards with it! I needed a real fast thank-you card, so I used some colors I already had on my desk to make my first one:
This uses Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum and Old Olive….I decided I really like this combo—of course, now that the plum is retiring!
The next one I did, I THOUGHT I used the Fall to Layout #87:
but I can see that I “adjusted” it a little in my head….I did it from memory; obviously my memory is a little off!
This one used Mellow Moss, Rose Red, Always Artichoke and Cameo Coral inks on a Very Vanilla card. I also ordered some of the gold Smooch Spritz, so I “enhanced” it with that. Let’s just say there is a learning curve on using this stuff!!! Here’s a closeup:
It seems to spray sideways, and sometimes comes out in a fine mist and other times, big blobs……if anyone knows any tricks or secrets for this, let me know! This is also a Mother’s Day card for my sale basket; here is the inside:
Are you tired of these yet? One more, using sketch #148 from Stamping 411:
I love this layout…very versatile And when was the last time you used Brilliant Blue?! I thought I would try a different approach to these flowers and stamp this image in a single color. I overstamped it with Sanded for a little more of a vintage look. It reminds me of a Delft tile.
Hope you enjoyed these---any questions, just email! Blessings on your day!
