Hello crafty friends,

Happy to see you here! Just dropping by to share with you three ways of creating backgrounds with one stamp set and watercolors. The Season’s Greetings stamp set I designed for Pinkfresh Studio last year for their Holiday Release. I decided to share several ideas on how to use a Christmas wreath for non-Christmas cards.

For my first card, I chose the amazing color pallet: coral, navy, and gold. You can’t go wrong with navy and coral. It’s a classic color combo that provides great contrast and this combination is both impactful and inspiring.

I gold heat embossed the wreath on watercolor paper and watercolored it with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I used the following colors: #67 Indigo, #31 Cadmium Scarlet, #34 Rose Madder, #91 Blush Gold.

Once my card panel was dry I added black and gold splatters. To finish the card off, I die cut a Smile out of black cardstock using this Die from Pinkfresh Studio. And I added white heat embossed sentiment from Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set.

For my second card, I started with the basics of color theory.

Secondary colors are purple, green, and orange. They are created using primary colors. If you look at the color wheel, you’ll find the secondary colors in between two primary colors. So I chose purple and green.

I white heat embossed the image on watercolor paper and colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors: #139 Cobalt Violet, #58 Sap Green Deep, #54 Olive Green. Once my card panel was dry I added black splatters. I foam mounted white heat embossed sentiment from Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set and added several black crystals.

For my last card, I used a dynamic color scheme of pink, grey, and yellow. This is a bold combination and I love how it turned out.

I stamped several images on watercolor paper in Altenew black Obsidian pigment Ink and heat embossed them in clear embossing powder. I then wet my card and painted three stripes with the following colors: #34 Rose Mader, #20 Black, and #40 Lemon Yellow. I also used Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors.

I cut letters for a word You out of black cardstock using dies from Altenew Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set. Next, I did masks. I covered half of each letter with the mask and heat embossed them in clear embossing powder. I glued them onto the card base.

This time I decided to make the panel with rounded corners. I used The We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper. I then added black crystals. Lastly, I white embossed on black a sentiment using stamps from Altenew Sentiment Strips 2 Stamp Set and popped up it onto the card.
