Welcome back for another Quick & Easy card idea. This week's birthday card features the Beautiful You stamp set and Watercolor Pencils from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. I loved this stamp set from the moment I first saw this catalog and knew I would have fun watercoloring the images with the pencils!!! I designed this card for my Open House last month and put out a variety of card stock colors from the Brights collection - pacific point (shown here), bermuda bay (shown below), rich razzleberry and melon mambo. I also let everyone pick between crumb cake and whisper white card bases. It was fun to see how everyone chose different colors - because those colors are all included with the watercolor pencils, it was easy to customize the cards.
Here are all the images and sentiments found in the Beautiful You stamp set - it is definitely a must-have!
And here are the watercolor pencils - these are high-quality, smooth color pencils perfect for watercoloring stamped images. Use with Aqua Painters, Blender Pens, or alone. The 13 pencils come in the following Stampin’ Up! colors: Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White... - the color selection is great!
Here is a photo of the card with the bermuda bay option and crumb cake card base. I'm not sure which one I like better.. what do you think?
