CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Cards with Stripes

Good Morning, Stampers!

This week, the Create with Connie and Mary team is playing
with stripes! I had so much fun creating this card - I made my
own striped designer paper using water painters and ink!
This is a great way to get a custom-color match for a specific
occasion or event and it's so easy to do!

I took a piece of Thick Basic White cardstock and created the
wide lines using Pool Party ink and the wide water painter.
For the thinner lines, I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay inks
and the thin brush water painter. Once I had all the stripes, 
I let it dry completely before adhering to the card base.
For the flowers, I stamped the image onto a piece of
vellum using Whisper White ink and sprinkled with white 
embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used my Stampin' Blends 
on the BACKSIDE of the vellum to color in the image giving it 
a soft water-color look. A little tip: I adhered the vellun to the card 
front using mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Then, I covered them up with 
an Iridescent Rhinestone on top of each. 

Stamps: Hand-Penned Petals
Ink: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party
Paper: Think Basic White, Bermuda Bay, Vellum
Accessories: Stylish Shapes dies, Heat Tool, White embossing powder, Water Painters, Iridescent Rhinestones
Stampin' Blends: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Old Olive

Happie Stampin'!
