Tye Dye Flower Jars

Greetings! This is an exciting week for the Stampendous Design Team, as we are previewing the brand new stamps from the October catalog! We are all sharing a couple of our favorite projects this week to inspire you.

For this card, I used the new Flower Jar stamp. The method was inspired by a video by Jennifer McGuire who always has a million brilliant ideas. Below is my full tutorial and in addition, I created a YouTube video to share exactly what how I created it. Please click HERE to see my video. I'm not nearly as polished as Jennifer, but I did the best I could. I hope to create more videos very soon. Jennifer McGuire's original Watercolor Block Stamping video can be found HERE.

Supplies:
Stampendous:
CRP313: Flower Jars Stamp
SSC1272: Brushed Wishes
DP100: Detail White Embossing Powder

Other:
My Colors Cardstock: Caribbean Sea
Imagine: Kaleidacolor Rainbow Ink Pad in Calypso, VersaMark Ink
Scrapbook Adhesives: Permanent Strips.
Acrylic Block
Artist's Loft 140lb Cold Press Watercolor Paper
Spray Bottle
Anti-Static Powder Tool
EK Success: Medium Corner Rounder

Directions:
1. Cut a piece of watercolor paper down to 5 1/4" x 3 3/4."

2. Swipe the Calypso Kaleidacolor ink across an acrylic block. I kept the pads separated so the ink wouldn't blend on the pads. My acrylic block has a wavy edge, but you could use any block you have.

3. Spritz the block with water to help the colors blend, but try not to overdo it, or the colors will get muddy.

4. Carefully flip the block on to the piece of watercolor paper and press down. The colors will blend under the block.

5. Place something heavy on top of the block and leave it for a few minutes.

6. Remove the block and allow ink to completely dry. You can use a heat tool to speed things up.

7. Swipe the watercolor paper with an anti-static powder tool to be sure the paper is no longer damp.

8. Stamp the Flower Jars on to the watercolor paper with VersaMark ink.

9. Heat emboss the image with Detail White Embossing Powder.

10. Choose a sentiment from the Brushed Wishes stamp set and stamp with VersaMark Ink.

11. Heat emboss the sentiment with Detail White Embossing Powder.

12. Round the corners of the watercolor paper with a medium corner rounder.

13. Create the card base out of Caribbean Sea cardstock, cut to the size of 8" x 5 1/2."

14. Ink the edges of the card base by swiping it across the blue color in the Calypso ink pad.

15. Adhere the watercolor paper to the card base.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
