Watercolor Wings – Clean and Simple Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card

Clean and Simple Stampin’ Up! Birthday Card created using Watercolor Wings and Kinda Eclectic

Do you ever look at things so much, that you start not seeing them? Or is that just me? I’ve spent this week apologising to people for missing their birthday, despite having my Perpetual Birthday Calendar on the pinboard above my desk and despite the fact that I glance at it multiple times to check whose birthday is coming up! I think I’ve stopped seeing the dates now! I can’t believe I’ve managed it 5 times in October already!

Today’s project is a clean and simple Stampin’ Up! birthday card, that I made for my younger sister, whose birthday it was on Monday. And yes she is one of the birthdays I forgot! She did eventually get the card on Wednesday and I’m pleased to say she really liked it.  I got the idea for the layout from this card on Pinterest.

I was really pleased with how it turned out. Very clean and simple. I love the red and black colour combination. I also hand made the envelope to match, using the Real Red envelope paper available in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!

Clean & Simple Thank you card using Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!

Hey there, I’m back today with a card I came up with by playing around with Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!. This was one of the first stamp sets I saw when the annual catalogue first came out and it’s been hugely popular. All the ideas I had, to showcase the set, seemed to be covered immediately by other demonstrators around the world.  I kind of parked using it waiting for inspiration to hit.

I had the chance yesterday to have a little play and was messing around with various watercolour methods, markers, reinkers, ink pads and I came up with this card. Personally I love it (well I would wouldn’t I? 🙂 ).

Independent Demonstrator Tracy May Watercolor Wings CAS cardAfter I stamped the Butterfly base onto watercolour paper I simply took an aquapainter and pulled the ink from the bottom of the wings and let it run down the paper. I added more ink from the lid of the ink pad to make the colour more vibrant and then splattered ink across the paper.

Once it was dry I overstamped the butterfly with the detailed stamp in Versamark and heat embossed using Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it a sparkle.

I finished by stamping the sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes Card kit and adding some Real Red sequins.
