Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Watercolour Wings


Welcome to another Artful Stampers blog hop!

Lots of new things on this card! Watercolor Wings is a lovely stamp set that you can layer any way you like and it doesn't even matter if your stamping is wonky or over/under inked. These stamps look good ALL the time. :)

It comes with a matching Framelit in a bundle also. **APPLAUSE**

I used the NEW envelope paper both as the bow with the bow builder punch and I made an envelope since my card was a bit bulky. 

The embellishment is NEW....a Watermelon Wonder In Color Blossom Accent plus I added some NEW cool silver thread behind it. 

I also made an envelope from the Watermelon Wonder paper in the In Colors Envelope Paper Pack. I also stamped some images from Watercolor Wings onto it so that it matched. :)

Here are our colours for the challenge...

I also wanted to play along with The Deconstructed Sketch this week since it is Jen's final sketch challenge. This is my sixth card for the challenge...although I feel like I have played along more than that...it must be all those fully-designed but unfinished cards in my head! .... does that happen to you?

  1. Adorable still waiting for my set waiting waiting this is just beautiful!

  2. Just love this card! I can't wait to get my hands on Watercolor Wings.

  3. There doesn't seem to be any wonky or under/over inked stamping on this beautiful card Alison. :-)

    1. Haha. Thanks Annette....I am somewhat over-critical of my stamping. :) I am glad you can't see what I see....not that it matters with this set. :)

  4. Love the layout, I also love how your envelope matches the card. I'm looking forward to trying some of the new envelope paper and that stamp set is also on my very long wish list. 😉

  5. Love this - all the bits of it work so well together - great card & layout
