Wild & Free Flowers Water Colored Cards

Hi card making friends and welcome back.  Today I’m sharing Wild & Free Flowers Water Colored Cards.  This Wild & Free Flowers stamp set is part of the most recent monthly card kit from Simon Says Stamps.  You can also order it separately if you like.  It’s a beautiful 6 x 8 stamp set with wispy florals and a boat load of sentiments.

I gifted myself a set of the Mission Water colors for Christmas and I did get them swatched, but I really have not had time to play with them, until yesterday, WHOO HOO….Finally, a few hours to just sit down and create.  This was the perfect stamp set to do this with.  I heat embossed the images onto Canson Watercolor paper and went to town.

Wild & Free Flowers Water Colored Cards #1

Start by using a Misti to stamp the image in VersaMark Ink onto a piece of Canson Watercolor cardstock cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″.  Then, cover with black embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat set.

Next, watercolor the image.  I used the Mission Watercolors, picking a light and dark of the pink and the green.

Then, once the watercolor is dry, splatter with the same inks, stamp a sentiment in the top right corner and mount to a A2 card base, with a pink card front attached.

Wild & Free Flowers Water Colored Cards #2

All of the steps are the same as card #1 except I used white embossing powder on this card.

Next, once the piece was dry, I mounted it to a matt of matte gold cut at 3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″ before attaching it to the A2 card base.

Finally, I embellished it with the NEW, Pawsitively Dazzling gems.  These are a beautiful teal and have a crystal like shine, Oh so fabulous!

The April Card Kit Wild and Free Flowers contains this stamp set, a beautiful selection of cardstock and matching pattern paper, an embossing folder, envelopes, ink pad, embossing powder, scissors, adhesive squares and a lovely mess bag to store it all in.

  1. The Thank You card is gorgeous. I love the brilliant colors you chose. Did you watercolor the background before doing the flowers? I like the idea of using a white embossing powder on the floral outline. Beautiful!
