SCRAPS & STAMPS TIPS:

– The card was inspired by one of the projects from Stampin’ Up! magazines that demonstrators/hobby stampers receive. This magazine is one of my favorite things to read, it is packed with full of techniques and inspirations. I simply took the main cover project and decided to recreate a card in a different way.

– I used a piece of Watercolor Paper (#122959) to be a main canvas for the card. I inked up the Another Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set (#133454) sentiment in a Versa Mark Ink Pad (#102283) and stamped on the paper.

– Then, I used the White Embossing Powder (#109132) to heat set the sentiment. You are going to love this look when you get your hand on the process – heat embossing is so much fun! The middle part of the sentiment didn’t get stamped on well because of the texture on the watercolor paper, but I think it adds more interest to the card so I decided to leave it as is.

– After the heat embossing, I took our Stampin’ Spritzer (#126185) bottle, filled it up with rubbing alcohol, and added generous amount of Soft Sky Reinker (#131161) drops. You can add less or more depending on the intensity you are going for. Shake the bottle well after adding the drops, and spray on the paper! Watercolor paper is great because it curls much less and using alcohol instead of water also helps. You will soon find out the sentiment pops out because it is resisting the liquid due to the heat embossing. 2 techniques in 1 – awesome project!

– To add more colors, I used a small heart image from the same stamp set and stamped few of the hearts in Wisteria Wonder Ink Pad (#126985). Also added Whisper White Baker’s Twine (#124262) and the Vintage Faceted Designer Button (#127555) on the top.

There you go! I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Make sure to watch today’s video tutorial below!!
