You're My Friend

You're My Friend

I'm starting something new today, since it's the first day of a new month!  Be sure to read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can receive a free gift this month!!

Today, October 1st, is National Card Making Day!  Make sure you stamp at least one card (or as many as you can!) to celebrate, and then send them out to someone special to say, "I'm thinking of you"!

I was really pleased with the way today's project turned out.  I love the way the watercolor background turned out--the colors blended  nicely--and I thought the black background paper and black cascade of flowers helped the focal center piece pop.  And finally, you can never go wrong when you add some Wink of Stella!

Step by Step

To complete this project, you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:

5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Flirty Flamingo (card base)

2-1/4" x 4-1/4" Playful Palette Designer Series Paper

2-1/2" x 3" Watercolor paper

1)  Lay watercolor paper on work surface.  Put strips of washi tape around each edge (about 1/4" on to paper).  Use aqua painter with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach inks to watercolor background, blending colors in the middle.  Let dry and carefully remove washi tape.  Stamp sentiment in Basic Black ink over watercolor background.  Color heart and "Friend" with clear Wink of Stella.  Wrap twine twice around piece and tie in a bow on front.

2)  Stamp flowers on to Flirty Flamingo card base in a cascade from top left to bottom right in Basic Black ink.  Color center of flowers with clear Wink of Stella.

3)  Adhere Playful Palette DSP to card base, then adhere doily.  Adhere watercolor piece over doily with Stampin' Dimensionals.

These are the products I used in today's project:
