Hello! It’s Lynnea and I have a cute little shaped card to share with you today!
I started by die cutting two pieces of watercolor cardstock using the second largest die from the new Stitched Top Note Dies set. One I set aside to be the front of the card. The other I scored about 3/4″ from the top and this will be the back of my card. I used some strong double sided tape and put it on the top of the second die cut panel – the one with the score line. I put one line of the tape above the score line and adhered the card front panel to the back piece and just like that I have a shaped card to work with!
All of my images and my sentiment came from the Pumpkin Spice stamp set. Aren’t these treats amazing! They look so delicious! I knew I wanted to watercolor my images, so I stamped them with Versafine Onyx Black ink and used some clear embossing powder. This is a trick I use every time I watercolor! The embossing helps to create little “wells” for the water to sit in. That way my colors don’t bleed into each other! I started watercoloring with my Gansai Tambi Starry Colors paint set and added bits of gold watercolor to each image. It’s difficult to tell in the photographs, but all of the caramel drizzle, the little pumpkins on the donut, etc. are colored with the gold watercolor. I also used the white shimmer paint to color in all of the whipped cream. I used my regular Gansai Tambi watercolors to color the rest of my images and cut them out with the coordinating Pumpkin Spice Dies. I stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment onto white cardstock and cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle Die.
I added a gold watercolor wash to the background panel and spattered on some dark brown watercolor and arranged all of my images on top. Some are adhered flat and some have one or even two layers of foam tape!
Thank you so much for joining me!
