Playing with Water Color Technic Fun!!!

Well my friends,  I don't know if you already know this but I like to play a lot with Stampin' Up! products, a lot, to tell you the true is because I'm not expert in techniques or layouts, making treats box, I'm not, I'm been learning at the same time with you, so playing around is been my best source of learning new things,  and sharing what you have learn with everyone, comes back to you with more, I don't know if makes any sense, but I enjoy learning and I love to share it, and so far, sharing what I know instead of keeping it to myself is bringing me many blessings, and joy in what I do.

And tonight I decide to learn a little bit more about watercolor techniques, so I search and play, and play, and this is the final results I hope you like this tutorial, don't forget to comment, and try it at home to see if you love it as much I do 

First, pick your colors, any combination you like, my winner were Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral, Blushing Bride and of course Strawberry Slush. What you are going to do know is open a little bit your pad and with your hands squish a little bit so the ink transfer to your lit, next you are going to need watercolor paper, spritzer and your aqua painter.

 Fill your Spritzer and aqua painter with clean water, and spray a lot of water with your spritzer on your watercolor paper. Tip your aqua painter on the color you want and start coloring, when you are done with your color just wipe your aqua painter  on another paper until comes clean,i s no way to be wrong with this technic, just work with all the colors you like until you are happy with the way it looks, I made small lines, like I said before I was playing and wasn't sure how was going to look, so little by little I start getting more confortable and start playing putting more color more water and more... Fun!!!

At the end you have a really cute strip with a totally different look of tones, and a very wet water color paper, you can wait until it dry or just cheat and used your heat tool, like me hehe. ;)
For the next step you are going to need a puncher, I used my bitty butterfly, and elegant butterfly punch, just punch as many you want.

You can used the left over paper, to make a border for a card, or decorated to make a book mark if you want, just keep playing a little bit more 

now is time to put my beautiful butterflies to work, I decide to make a little note card, for this I used my stamp magic that I just got a week ago and love it.

Stamp the sentimental on the clear sheet and use it to help you align your stamp on your paper, glue your butterflies the way you like.

for this card I was thinking on a family theme so got my 2 big butterflies, and 3 little ones, mom dad and kids, in my case I will need 5 little butterfly but didn't have enough space so I decide go with 3 ;)

stamp your sentimental and done! a cute little happy card.

I love the texture that the watercolor paper has, love it !

I hope you give it a try.

My Daughter and I, Making a cute Cupcake Spinner Birthday Card

One of the stamps set that I really love is Create a Cupcake Stamp set the sad thing is that this stamp set is in the retired list, :( and the clear mount is sold out, already but they still have the set in wood but I really don't think will last very long, like I said before is a really cute stamp set, the good news is that the punch is not retiring so I have hope that they may be bringing a new stamp set, I really hope so, if not I will get my own, next week, the set that I have right now is not mine is my very close neighbor that used to be a demo like me, she let me borrow it since my cute little daughter has a party in the morning and she want us to make a card for her. 

Like I said before, my daughter has a birthday party tomorrow morning, so we started picking the color she wants in the card she picked Pool Party, Pistachio Pudding, Straberry Slush, Blushing Bride, and after picking the colors we start pudding her card together here are some pictures

So proud of her, she did a great job, I'm a very happy Mom :D after she finish her card she wanted to make more but it was late, I'm sure she is going to be asking me to make more...

So like her, I wanted to make more, so I start like her in my colors I used the same colors as her I think she picked a cute set of colors, I just make it a little bit different, here is a picture.

for this project I used:

1 piece of pistachio pudding 4 1/4 by 11 score in 5 1/2
1 piece of blushing bride 4 by 5 1/4
1 piece of whispery white 3 3/4 by 5
a bunch of dimensional 
2 pennies

You Make me Happy !

Like you already know some of  the Stampin' Up! products are retiring, that means when the new catalog comes out in June, some of my stamps will be gone and if you like them you won't be able to buy them, for that reason, I'm going to try to post more pictures of the project I made so if you like them you can get them before they are all gone forever forever forever ...

Anyway, from the retired list I used the stamp set  "Hello, Lovely", the "Flower Shop Bundle", they are retiring the price for the bundle but the stamp set and the punch will still be available and the "Emboss Powder Pewter", I'm really sad that they are retiring the embossing powder pewter because I really like it, I just got it, and wanted to play more with it, so sad to see it go :( oh well, still have time to play for a little longer :D 

I really like this card and love how the pewter embossing powder on the flowers looks. For this card I used:

Flower Shop Wood Bundle 132727 
Tangerine Tango Card Stock 
Hello, Lovely 130243
Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder  117335

Happy Birthday Cute Owl

I really love my Owl Punch, I just finish another birthday card with the owl punch and before I put my stuff away is easy for me to write all the ingredients to make this cute card.

For the outside of the card:

For the leaves I used the circle scallop 1 3/4 punch with gumball green card stock and to give a little bit of dimension on the leaves I sponge pear pizzaz around it.

To make the tree trunk I use my big shot with the embossing folder woodgrain on a piece of early espresso card stock 4 1/4" by 5 1/2". 

For the little window I used the 1 1/4" circle punch and the 1 3/4" on real red card stock

For the inside of the card:

I used a piece of crumb cake card stock 4 1/4" by 11" and fold in half.

For my cute little owl of course I used the owl punch :) and for the owl cloth and hat and balloons used the fresh print designer series paper stack and real red, bakers twine early expreso and delightful dozen stamp set with early expreso stampin' write marker. 

I hope you like it!

With love
