Seaside Birthday Card

This week I'm sharing projects using some of our beautiful blues. This card features Night of Navy from the Neutrals Collection along with Coastal Cabana from the Brights Collection. Both of these colours were pulled from the list of colours in the Playing With Patterns designer series paper. Basic Gray from the Neutrals Collection was used for the card base.

Have you tried Stampin' Up!'s Water Painters? When you purchase the Water Painters you receive 3 different sized brushes in the package - a small brush, a medium brush and a large fan brush. The body of the painters is filled water before using them to watercolour.
 
Watch me create this watercolour card in a video that was recorded in September 2020 during one of my Facebook lives:

Pretty Cards and Paper Blog Hop - Our Choice

Welcome to April's Pretty Cards & Paper blog hop where we are sharing our choice of designer series paper!
I chose the Playful Pets designer series paper to create 2 layouts to share with you. Both layouts were used with the almost the same cardstock supplies. The first layout has a 3.25" x 4.25" Basic White photo frame whereas the second layout does not.
Can you spot the other cardstock pieces and do they look like the same dimensions?
The other main differences are the size and quantity of photos along with the size and designs from the Playful Pets designer series paper.

Next up you can visit these other blogs to see what they are sharing with us today:

Seahorse Gratitude

When looking for inspiration on what to do with a stamp set I will head over to Pinterest and search the stamp set name. There were a few cards I discovered for ideas to create this one. Using Just Jade and Misty Moonlight to create the dimension of going deeper into the ocean. The Misty Moonlight designer series paper was cut to 4" wide and then ripped at an angle to create the waves. Before gluing them to the card I used the Misty Moonlight ink to darken the ripped edges for added detail. In between a few of the layers there are strips of ripped Silver Foil sheets. I'll send this card out to my next customer order to thank them and brighten their day. Can you think of anyone you could send this card to?
