Ever since I was a child I have always loved to color. With Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons I can take my coloring one step further and add some depth with shadowing and blending to my images. This little bird is Young Vermillion. He's stamped in Basic Black and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used my watercolor crayons to color and my blender pen to move the colors around to the placement I was happy with. I chose a swatch of dsp from the Greenhouse Gala collection and I used my Boho Blossoms punch around the edges. Then I punched with tag with the Large Designer Label punch (1 of dsp and 2 of Real Red cs). The ribbon was pinch pleated and stapled. Then I glued it onto the ribbon I had wrapped around my cardstock. The Old Olive cs was placed halfway inside the Lines ef. All products used are Stampin' Up! except the staples.
My sweet stamping friend Debbie Angelle sent me the die cuts you see on my card. I put them together to create this card. I am posting it as a Thank You to Debbie.
Thanks Debbie, it was so kind of you to think of me. I love these die cuts! Thanks for sharing with me. <3 p="">

So I pulled out my mountain scene stamp from Stampscapes and stamped onto glossy cardstock (photo paper) with Memento Black. Then I added some trees from Stampscapes and Stampin' Up! The Mare and colt from Stampabilities was stamped onto a separate piece of glossy cardstock then cut out. Using the Top Note Die from Stampin' Up! I created a window. I colored the images with my Stampin' Up! markers and a dauber. Added highlights with a white gel pen. The dotted Ranger Liquid Pearls to make the flowers. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! The flowers are Petaloo. The card is interactive in that when you pull and push t…
