Pootlers Blog Hop


Pootlers Blog Hop-001Today I am thrilled to be taking part in another brilliant Pootler’s Blog Hop. My fellow Pootler’s and I have put together a series of projects showcasing some of the gorgeous new products from the new Annual Catalogue that was released earlier this month.

You Got This Watercolour Card

You Got This Watercolour Card

For today’s card I am using the new You’ve Got This Stamp Set, taking the main flower image I stamped it with Versamark ink on some Watercolour Cardstock measuring 5 1/2 inches x 3 5/8 inches. I heat embossed this with some Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it with my Heat Tool.  Taking an Aqua Painter I wet my piece of embossed watercolour cardstock and then taking some of the New Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink I just dropped ink on and around the flower petals allowing the water to carry the ink. I repeated this step with some of the gorgeous Mint Macaron Classic Ink around the stem of the flower again allowing the water to carry the ink outwards.

Once this was dry I used lots of Fast Fuse to adhere it to my card base which consisted of a piece of A4 Mint Macaron Cardstock (yes, I am ever so slightly obsessed with this colour) cut at 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches.  To edge my watercolour piece I took a piece of Tip Top Taupe Cardstock measuring 1 inch x 5 1/2 inches and adhered a piece of the lovely English Garden Designer Series Paper measuring 3/4 inch x 5 1/2 inches and popped this up on the edge of my card front with some Stampin Dimensionals.

Then to finish off I stamped one of the lovely sentiments from the stamp set on to some Whisper White Cardstock with some (yes, you guessed it) Mint Macaron Classic Ink. I punched this out with my 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle punch, I sponged the edges with the matching ink. To the back of my sentiment piece I decided to add some “Pootle Loops”, well it wouldn’t be a Pootler’s Blog Hop without them! So taking some of the White Jute Ribbon I threaded a couple of lengths of cotton off a strip of ribbon (a lovely demonstrator shared this trick with us at Regional Training this May) and curled this round the back of my sentiment piece adhering it with some Glue Dots. I then adhered this with some more Stampin Dimensionals to my card front.
