Create a pretty card using watercolors and rubber stamps – Lavender Sprig

Hello all,

In celebration of World Watercolor Month, I have created this pretty Lavender Sprig card using watercolors and rubber stamps.  Watercolors seem to go so well with the lavender images from the Club Scrap Inc. 2018 Lavender Fields set.  I love lavender everything so, of course, this is one of my absolute favorite stamp sets.  Check out the Mixed Media Quick Tips video below for the step by step details.

A Perfect Reason – CP SOA Challenge.3

Hello all,

“I did it”!  I accomplished my goal of completing and submitting 3 cards for the  Catherine Pooler (CP), Stamp of Approval challenge using stamps from “The Perfect Reason Collection”.   And, I might add, using the “You Did It” stamp set for this card was the perfect way to wrap things up!

CP SOA Challenge You Did It

This card features layered stamping of images using CP inks and stamp sets from The Perfect Reason stamp collection.  For some added dimension, foam mounting tape was used to pop up the card base and the flower focal point.   To finish, the card was embellished with ribbon, gems, and page pebble.

I am very pleased with the bright colors and crisp stamping that I was able to achieve with the CP inks!  These inks are a new staple in my craft room.

The next step in this challenge calls upon you!  Yes, voting for your favorite will open on May 21st at 6:05 EST at http://catherinepooler.com/blog/.  I hope that you will take the time to check out all of the wonderful cards posted and vote for your favorite.
