Embossing Resist Watercolor CAS Cards


It's time again for a new Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge.  For this round I created two more CAS watercolor cards.  I'm working on a collection that will complete a gift box.  More on that to come.  :)


I embossed the Simon Says Stamp Magical Christmas patterned stamp repeatedly to make some stripes on my card, then did an ombre watercolor overlay.


I used the insides of Tim Holtz's chevron On the Edge die for the arrows.  The sentiment is from the Kindness Matters set by Verve Stamps and is stamped on a Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Circle die.


For my second entry, I did a variation on my cards last week, blogged  HERE.  This time I used one color, Picked Raspberries DI.  I did lots of splatters to create variation.


The die cut is another Tutti Designs die, Hello Word Set.  The glitter stock creates such a punch!  A few sequins completed the aesthetic.  I hope you like these and are inspired to create some cards with your Simon Says Stamps.  Thanks for your visit!

Two great simple card designs! Love the ombre effect, and the black chevron adds such an impact to the first simple design. Love the watery wash of the PR ink to high light the glittered sentiment! Great designs and so inspiring! Hugs!
