Hi stampers! Happy Friday! It's time for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop with some amazing past and present Stampin' Up Artisan friends! I'm still so thrilled to be a part of this group!
I used one of my current favorites, two new favorites and one that I haven't quite made friends with yet (although now, I think we are BFF's).
Lovely Lipstick isn't my most favorite BUT the more I use it, the more I like it!
For my card, I started by making a background by watercoloring on my Silicone Craft Sheet then I smashed my Watercolor Paper onto it. It's a great way to fake a watercolor wash if it's not your strong suit, like me! Fake it till you make it!!! After it was dry, I added some of our Shimmery Embossing Paste for just a little texture.
I was on the fence about the Lined Alphabet Bundle but I ended up getting them and I'm pretty glad! They are cool and pretty versatile! You could fussy cut these if you don't have the dies but I'll show you how I did it with the dies and the Stamparatus.
I used my dies to cut out my DSP just barely on the edge so it left the letter slightly attached as you can see here. I then put it in my Stamparatus (away from the hinges) and lined up the letter. After it's stamped you can just easily hand trim the rest of the letter. I suppose you could stamp and then cut in out but I found this to be easier.
I hope you liked my color combo and I hope you're inspired to try it yourself!
Now your off to see my fellow teammate, Paula! You're going to love her color combo!
