This Happy Watercolor set from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog has been my “go-to” in the last couple of weeks. It is so very versatile! I’ve seen various versions of this card on Pinterest, so I’m not even sure to whom to give credit.
This card uses Summer Starfruit, a color that is being retired. But I happened to have a whole, unopened package just begging to be used.
I stamped the flower image with Black Stazon on Whisper White card stock. I inked the “splotch” from the Happy Watercolor set in Summer Starfruit ink and continued stamping down the page without re-inking. The sentiment comes from the same set.
This card is so simple to make, but it is so elegant. Just imagine the possibilities with different color combinations and sayings. The sentiments from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set would work well here.
Just below, I’ve included another sample using Pink Pirouette. I plan to make some sympathy cards in Wisteria Wonder and possibly Pistachio Pudding.
