Hello stamping friends. Today I am sharing with you some simple and easy handmade card ideas using Stampin' Up! supplies and I also have a free PDF tutorial for you to show you exactly what I did with each card. These are great cards for beginners, and the stampset, watercolour pencils and note card and envelope packs are inexpensive items to get you started in your card making hobby.
Even though I have used Stitched Rectangle dies in my card, I have given the measurements in the tutorial to just cut a rectangle for these pieces. You could also substitute a rectangle of patterned paper for the two cards where I have used the vellum doily coloured with Stampin' Blends (again the measurements are in the tutorial). The vase and the mason jar are from the Jar of Flowers bundle which I have shown below. They are a great compliment to the Four Seasons Floral stamp set I have used in this project. The Four Seasons Floral stamp set is great for beginners and is just $24.
I couloured the images using Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen (you can also use a Water Painter). You need to stamp the images onto the card using a black Stazon ink pad, so that the outline doesn't run when you add the moisture from the Blender Pen. Stazon is a solvent based ink pad which is why it doesn't run. I have combined a few different colours of pencil in colouring these images, which gives a more realistic effect.
We sell two different sets of watercolour pencils and you can find them both HERE in the online store.
I used the jar punch (which is shaped and sized just like a mason jar) for the vase in this card. This can be purchased alone, or as part of the Jar of Flowers Bundle (where you get 10% off by purchasing them together).
There are lots of other floral shapes in the Jar of Flowers stamp set, which coordinate with the jar punch too. The Jar Punch can also be purchased separately.
