Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Watercolor Technique #4

Hello fellow stampers – it’s Saturday and we are into AUGUST! I cannot believe it – where did summer go? As I mentioned min a previous post, I held a watercolor techniques class and am sharing the creations as I complete them. Today’s is a Basic White notecard & envelope using watercolor technique #4. Do you remember what that was on the Stampin’ Up! video? Truth be told, I wouldn’t either if I hadn’t taken some serious notes 😁. Technique #4 is this: stamp the Fluid 100 watercolor paper with stamp & ink of choice; use the Water Painter to draw color into the image, limiting the amount of ink. My first image was the leaf branch from the Cottage Rose stamp set.

Today I stamped the single rose from that same stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Fluid 100 watercolor paper & using the small tip Water Painter, I drew the color into the image. Once dry I die cut it with the Cottage Flower Dies and I also die cut the leaf I had prepped for class. I adhered the two together with liquid glue and then lightly curled both the flower & leaves with my fingers.

Before getting too far ahead of myself, I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a piece of Basic White, put dimensionals on the back and added it to a Basic White notecard. I die cut a circle with the Stylish Shapes Dies and Lovely Layers Vellum and adhered the two watercolored pieces with glue dots to the vellum. I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate on a Basic White scrap using the Charming Sentiments stamp set, then die cut it with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I put a couple of mini dimensionals on the back and adhered it in place. The last couple of things: a Metallic Woven Ribbon bow in Sweet Sorbet was attached with a glue dot; three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for glam ~ and the card front was done.

For the inside, a simple sentiment from the Charming sentiments stamp set was added in Smoky slate ink. And for the envelope, a single rose from Cottage Rose stamp set stamped in Polished Pink on the flap and the front.

Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose No-Line Watercolor

Good Friday morning! You may remember that last week I held a watercolor class. Today I am sharing a card made with the no-line watercoloring technique and the Cottage Rose stamp set. I also incorporated the Charming Sentiments stamp set & Sentiment Silhouette Dies, Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Metallic Woven Ribbon in Parakeet Party.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose No-line watercolor

Let me explain the no-line watercoloring technique. I used Fluid 100 watercolor paper, Water painters, (primarily the thin & medium brushes) and several inks. I stamped the rose with Sahara Sand ink on the Fluid 100 paper, got my brush a bit wet by pushing water to the brush tip pinching the water barrel of the painter. I got ink in the lid of the Polished Pink ink pad and a bit of water. I dabbed into the wetness, tapped on grid paper then onto the stamped image. There are two key take-a-ways: not too much water & the more ink on the painter, the darker it will color. I continued the process to color the rose, then the leaves with Mint Macaron first then shaded with Old Olive. My final step was the flower center with So Saffron ink, then dabs of color on the small flowers I am calling status. Once completely colored, I set this aside to dry.

While that was drying, I prepared the card stock and layers: Sahara Sand for the card base, another layer of Sahara Sand run through the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, Polished Pink for backing the Fluid 100 stamped image, and Polished Pink & Basic White for the inside. Let’s look at the image again.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose No-line Watercolor

The embossed layer is adhered directly to the card base. You can use Stampin’ Seal or liquid glue. I prefer the liquid glue for what I call ‘wiggle room’. The stamped image is adered to Polished Pink in the same fashion, then put on dimensionals and added to the embossed card front. The thin Metallic Woven Ribbon is just the right width for this image and the bow was added with a glue dot. The sentiment is stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Basic White using the Charming Sentiments stamp set, then die cut with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies – l-o-v-e this bundle! It was added with a dimensional and finally three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose, inside

For the inside I stamped the leaf image in stamped off Old Olive, then stamped the sentiment with full strength on a Basic White panel. As you can see, it too is added to a Polished Pink panel and adhered to the inside of the card.

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose, no-line watering

This leaf is just a wonderful image, so I used it on the envelope, even allowing the leaf to overhang the fold :O) Of course, I used Old Olive ink. This technique creates a beautiful card – and I’ve sent it already and gotten a response from the recipient – yay! It feels good to thank folks for a job well done – to make them realize they are appreciated. If you do a no-line watercolor, would you share it with me? I would love to see it!

Stampin’ Up! Triple Stamping w/ Cottage Rose

Hello again… it’s FRIDAY! Do you have big plans for the weekend? We have a concert on Sunday and rehearsal with orchestra from 9-12 on Saturday morning. Plus the weather is supposed to be rainy, windy, cold – so I won’t be playing in the garden for sure!

We had card class today & I chose to use the Cottage Rose stamp set for a bit of triple stamping. It is really quick and easy and makes a beautiful card that… depending on sentiment used, could be birthday or sympathy or thinking of you. I stuck with just the single stamp set and chose, well, you’ll see. :O)

Triple stamping w/ Cottage Rose.1

Isn’t this just lovely? And if you wanted, you could choose to color one of the roses, leaves, but I really like this just the way it is. Perhaps I’ll do one and color it, just to see if I like it. Anyway – here are the details on how to do this:

  • Cut the card stocks
    • Sweet Sorbet: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 4 1/4 x 3; 3 1/4 x 2
    • Basic White: 4 x 5 1/4 (2); 4 x 2 3/4; 3 x 1 3/4
  • Stamp sentiment in upper left corner of smallest panel of Basic White: Memento ink using the Cottage Rose stamp set
  • Layer Basic White panels together & adhere with either removable adhesive (which SU! does not sell!) or you may use glue dots.
  • Stamp with Basic White layers in place all over the panels. I recommend pressing firmly but do not wiggle, just press firmly.
Triple stamping example
  • Take Basic White layers apart being careful not to tear paper where adhered together
  • Add largest panel to card front; add next layer to Sweet Sorbet layer then to card front, matching flower patterns; add top layer to Sweet Sorbet panel, put dimensionals on back and add to card front.
  • Almost done… add two Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels… and card front is done :O)
Triple Stamping w/ Cottage Rose.1

Now for the inside: With the remaining 4 x 5 1/4 panel, stamp the single rose from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink and add to the inside of the card.

Cottage Rose, inside

For the envelope, I stamped the same rose from Cottage Rose stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on the envelope front. Ink the stamp and continue inking, stamping for the envelope flap.
