Just Breathe

By | May 20, 2017

It’s the weekend!!!  Just breathe and relax!

Today, I have a preview of lots of fun things coming in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog that goes live on June 1, 2017.  That’s just around the corner!  One suite of products that instantly caught my eye was the Colorful Seasons stamp set and coordinating Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies.  There are SO MANY elements to these two sets.  I can literally use them all year round, and there are great individual pieces as well, including the adorable Adirondack chair and scallop edge die I used here.  Love!!!

I also used some of the new In-Colors on this card, including Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst.

My card was surprisingly simple to create.  I have a link to a step-by-step tutorial below.  I used a technique that’s new to me … how did I miss this one?  It involves coloring with Stampin’ Write Markers to get rich, vibrant color, before adding water with an Aqua Painter.  I totally LOVE this idea!  It’s so easy, and turns out just gorgeous.

After the background dried, I added splatter with clear water.  So easy, and so cool looking!

I just want to sit back, breathe, and sip that drink.  Ahhhh:)

Hope you have a great weekend and get a chance to relax and breathe.
