The Virtual Catalog Party! Here's a recap of projects!

Thought I would just provide you a recap of the cards that were presented during this event - all in one place. Visit the original posts for great techniques videos.

The Virtual Catalog Party! Last Day!

Well, today is it.  Thanks for stopping by and creating with me "Virtually".  Stay tuned for more.
Here's another card for you featuring the single large stamp. Corner Garden.  I've been watercoloring more lately.   I'm not an expert by any means, but I find it very relaxing. It's hard to make a mistake.  

Watercolor Resist


  1. Stamp and emboss with white embossing powder, using a heat gun on watercolor paper.
  2. Color with ink refill, stamp pads, or any watercolor pallet of your choice with a Aqua Painter (water brush, my new best friend).  You do not have to invest in expensive water color paints.
  3. Lay a little water down in each area as you color.  It will help the color flow better.

The Virtual Catalog Party! Timeless Elegance

Are you ready for another project.   Another Designer Series Paper I just love - Timeless Elegance.  This is another Designer Series Paper that can stand on its own.  The technique featured here is "Colorizing".

  1.   Prepare your base card.  In this case I chose Basic Black Cardstock, and cut your piece of Designer Series paper to be slightly smaller than the base card and adhere.  Stamp your choice of words
  2. Chose a color for your roses.  In this case, I chose Blushing Bride.  Use the sponge dauber to add color
  3. Use Framilts to cut out your butterfly using a coordinating color.  
  4. Wrap lace and cord and adhere butterflies.

Virtual Catalog Party! Dahlia Card

I love working with the larger stamps. Here is a monochromatic card that is easy to complete, and will make a perfect addition to a card set for gift giving.  You can produce multiple cards and simply change the greeting.

  2. Layer a 4.75"x4.75" of Designer Series Paper Stack  of the new 2015-2017 "In Colors.  Delightful Dijon paper chosen here
  3. Add another layer of 4.25" x 4.25" Basic Black Cardstock.
  4. Stamp the Definitely Dahlia stamp onto a 4" x 4" piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp the greetin of your choice onto this card. Layer it onto the  Basic Black cardstock. 
  5. Attach with Stampin' Dimensionals to the base card.

The Virtual Catalog Party! Creating Watercolor Backgrounds Using Your Clear Block

The Virtual Catalog Party! Build a Birthday

The rain storm here with loads of Thunder scared scared us  but didn't stop the "Tea and Tiaras" 80th Birthday tea for my Mom. Check out the tiara we got my Mom so she can wear it everyday!  I think I should wear one while I create stuff...
Here's the next card on the Party schedule.

  1. This card is a 5"x5" card.  Each of the "cake layers" are stamped separately and cut out to make the candles.
  2. Each candles is mounted using Dimensionals onto a white card stock piece that has been embossed with the Decorative Dot folder.
  3. The candle portion is layered  on top of a cut piece of Designer Series  Paper from the "Cherry on Top" paper stack ( this stack is 6"x6")
  4. These are layered on a Bermuda Bay card base.

The Stamped Watercolor Card

  1.  Use ink refills and sponge daubers to ink and stamp images on watercolor paper.
  2. Using the water brush, blend from the outlines to color in your images
  3. Let dry or use your heat gun to speed up the process.
  4. Blend your background color, for this I used Marina Mist, from the images to the center.  It is okay to allow a little "bleeding" of ink from your image to the background
  5. Let dry (or heat gun) again and add white pen accents with a white gel pen if you like.
  6. Use sponge daubers to antique your edges.  For this one I used the background color, Marina Mist.
