Itty Bitty Greetings

Hello stampin' friends!  I had really good intentions of posting a video this morning but I ran into technical difficulties which ran late into last night...so no video today.  I will continue to work on it though and hopefully it will be posted soon!  In the meantime, I thought I'd share this pretty today!

There's only a single stamped image on this card from Itty Bitty Greetings.  You'll find this set on 46 of the 2018-19 Stampin' Up! catalog, available in either wood- or clear-mount.  With 32 sentiments included, it covers just about any occasion you can think of...it's a great go-to when another set you're using doesn't inlcude the sentiment you need.  You can see on today's card, it can also stand alone!

I started this card by using an Aqua Painter and ink from the lid of Berry Burst to watercolor the background on a piece of watercolor paper, keeping the ink in the lower right hand corner in a loose circle shape.  Once that was dry, I added a fine splatter, again using the Aqua Painter and ink from Merry Merlot (I added a lot of water so it's just slightly darker than the Berry Burst).  I also splattered some Wink of Stella.  I layered the watercolor paper onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and then onto a Berry Burst card base.

For the focal point, I dyed a piece of the Whisper White polka dot tulle ribbon with a sponge and Merry Merlot ink and set it aside to dry for a bit.  I punched a piece of the Wood Textures DSP using the Starburst punch, then layered a circle of vellum, punched with the 1-1/4" circle punch.  I was really happy with the bit of Wood Textures DSP on this project...I thought it added something a little unexpected against the pink!  :)  The sentiment is stamped onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock in Merry Merlot ink, then each end was clipped to flag it.  I layered the ribbon and all the paper pieces with mini glue dots and attached it to the card front.

To finish it up, I attached a linen thread bow and a few of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.

 

 

Looking forward to sharing a Simple Sunday project with you on Sunday!
