Watercolor Words


Watercolor Words stamp set by Stampin’ Up! really caught my eye on the first pass through the new 2015-16 Annual Catalog!  I love how all of the stamps look watercolored and think it’s pretty clever that the stamps can be made so that there’s less ink on part of the stamps – on purpose!


  • I can’t seem to get away from using the new 2015-17 In Colors – they’re just gorgeous!  This is Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron with Basic Black.
  • Great coordination factor – the flower in the Watercolor Words stamp set goes so nicely with the flower in the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.
  • Circles are made with the 1-3/4″ and 1-3/8″ Circle Punches, and the banner end is cut with the new Banner Triple Punch.
  • The center of the flower is created with a Metal Rimmed Pearl colored black with a Sharpie marker.
  • Dimensionals are important to this card.  The entire Whisper White Cardstock piece is popped up , then the flower circle is raised up off the card front by stacking 2 Dimensionals together on the left side and one Dimensional on the right side.


This card came together in under a half hour.  It’s simple but effective for when there’s not a lot of time for fussing.
