Happy Friday,

Today I’m sharing another card I made with the Blended Seasons bundle and the Stampin Up Watercolor Pencils Assortment #2.  I love a stamp set that is versatile AND includes many sentiments.  The Blended Seasons bundle is available for a limited time, but it will remain in my collection for a long time.  Here’s my card:

Here are my card measurements:

  • Whisper White – 11″ X 4″, score and fold at 5 1/2″
  • Calypso Coral – 5 3/8″ X 4″ and a scrap piece at least 3/4″ X 2 1/2″ to to stamp the sentiment and trim to desired length
  • Wood Texture Designer Series Paper – 5 1/4″ X 4

How to DIY:

I embossed the large floral image with white embossing powder on the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) and colored the image with the Watercolor Pencils Assortment #2 and used the Aqua Painters(water brush)  to blend the watercolor pencils.  Be careful that you use a damp aqua painter and not use alot of water because the DSP is not very thick.  Too much water and your paper will buckle and warp.  I didn’t have any trouble watercoloring the image but I kept a dry paper towel close by to blot off any excess water.

Product List


Well friends if you read a few posts ago I decided to enter the world of videos.  Let me tell you, it’s a huge challenge just trying to figure out all the lighting, the product set up, the sizing, all the different steps just to start the filming and then uploading it in the correct format.  Not to mention all the apps needed to edit, design a video cover, converting video formats, uploading and a million other things.  Everyone makes it look so easy but it’s not – or at least not for me.  I’m trying though.  The following video is a test to see if I could do one and it’s unedited.  So you’re viewing it just as I filmed it.  I’ll take on editing after I’m comfortable with just filming a video!  Video correction:  In the video I incorrectly identified the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine because they’re not listed on the package.  The correct colors are: Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Very Vanilla.  You get 10 yards per spool.  It’s beautiful and soft.  I can’t wait to use it.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  I hope you enjoyed my card and video today.  I’m working on a card video tutorial for Monday.  Make plans to join me on Monday.  Have a wonderful week-end!
