Hi everyone! Dream Team Member, Lisa Harrolle here! I’m hanging out on Catherine’s blog today because I just had to share this super easy floral card with you.
I used that fabulous new Beautiful You stamp set from Catherine Pooler’s line of stamps. If you visited my blog during the Spring Fling release blog hop, you may remember a similar card I made pairing up some of Catherine Pooler’s original color inks with the new Spring Fling colors in the Party Collection.
These ink shades coordinate so well together! Well, for this card I bumped it up a notch and stamped flowers all around the edges using multiple colors of the darker shades. Next, I pulled out the new, lighter colors and my water brush to do some water coloring.
Have you ever tried water coloring with Catherine Pooler inks? They work great! You don’t need much water to get them to blend and it works beautifully on Catherine Pooler’s Premium White Card Stock, too.
For the sentiment I used the Spot On Sentiments – Congrats die. I gently sponged a little It’s a Boy blue over it for a really soft, coordinating look to add to the center of this card. I absolutely love the scripty letters on this die!
A little tip to make it stand out even more is to cut this Congrats one more time out of card stock or thick water color paper and layer it under the finished blue piece.
To finish this card off I just trimmed this stamped piece around the edges and popped it up with a little fun foam on an A2 sized card base. A few clear sequins adds a little sparkle.
Well, thanks for stopping by today. And a big thanks to Catherine for letting me play on her blog today.
