Color Me Happy Project Kit

I'm finally getting caught up finishing some projects.  One of which was the Color Me Happy project.

The kit contains enough supplies for 16 cards -4 each of 4 designs.  It coordinates with the Color Me Happy stamp set

There are 4 projects in this kit, all coordinating with the stamp set "Color Me Happy".  They include 16 lined envelopes.  Directions are included.

So Happy for You
The triangular area onthe front of the card base was stamped with the floral stamp and coloured with the new Pink Pirouette stampin blendabilities.  Some pink sequins, included in the kit, were added randomly to the card front.

The sentiment was stamped on a precut banner.

Two birds were stamped on a pre cut piece of Whisper White card stock.  They were coloured with Pink Pirouette and Pool Party Stampin' Blendabilities.

A gold foil scallop circle was added to the upper left and the stamped banner added at and angle on top of this.  A bow made of White Baker's twine was added above the scallop circle.

Thank You

The word "Thank" was coloured with 2 shades of Pool Party and 2 shades of Night of Navy blendabilites.


The lanterns were coloured with Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party blendabilites.
An extra lantern was added over top of the stamped on using dimensionals, and a Pool Party tassel added at the top.

Have I told you how much I love the Stampin' Blendabilities.!!!!!!

Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique

On Tuesday, at our Team Meeting, the  Tissue Paper Watercolour Technique was demonstrated, and each team member had an opportunity to make several samples. It was a bit messy but I provided gloves - and a good time was had by all.

Instead of using stamping pads I decided to use 3 colours of re-inkers. Tissue paper used was ordinary white wrapping tissue paper but you could use the tissue paper that comes with the Window Sheets.

I used the tutorial found on Splitcoaststampers here

Here are some of the samples I made:

I found that I liked some white space in my samples.  You will also notice that I crumpled all of my samples up to provide extra texture and when they were  uncrumpled  I embossed them with gold or copper embossing powder.

Some samples I made into cards:

After adding the watercoloured tissue paper to Whisper White card stock, rather than adding Window Sheets over it as suggested in the tutorial, I die cut the Rose Wonder die and adhered it directly over top of the sample.  Colours used to create the background:  Pool Party, Marina Mist, and Tempting Turquoise.

For this card I added a piece of Window sheet to the die cut rectangle frame and black embossed the tree from "Lovely as a Tree" on it.  This art piece was then added to the Tissue Paper background and matted it with Basic Black.
