SUO Challenge #296 is all about the inspiration picture. I pulled colors and techniques from the photo to create this Brave Vikings Birthday Card. Get more details and shopping information in the blog post.
Make a blended background Spring themed card with the Stampin' Up Snow Front Stamp set. Visit the two card challenges that inspired this card: Fab Friday and the Paper Players.
The Yummy Christmas Stamp set from Stampin' Up is a perfect stamp set for the SUOC Color challenge this week.
This hummingbird card features Brusho watercoloring as well as traditional coloring with Stampin' Blends. If you have never tried Brusho, it is a lot of fun to work see what all those color crystals will do when sprinkled on wet watercolor paper. The vibrant colors are simply awesome.
Use the Waterfront Stamp Set to create a gorgeous majestic mountain range card suitable for a man's birthday.
What could be more elegant than a silver embossed wedding card made with the Petal Palette stamp set from Stampin' UP? How about a wedding card enhanced with the softness of watercoloring those beautiful roses?
I knew that I wanted to color the beautiful cabbage roses from the Petal Palette stamp set in Cherry Cobbler so I colored the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The roses were cut out on the Big Shot using the matching framelits. I really loved how they looked.
I added the textured behind them using the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder on a piece of Old Olive card stock and then cut it out on the Big Shot with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. The sentiment comes from this stamp set as well.
Try out the Brusho crystals by sprinkling them on wet watercolor paper. Let the background dry and then add the palm trees in night of navy and the sun in Tangerine Tango. You can blend as much as you like with an aqua painter.
