Happy Blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This card is made using the new Happy Blessings stamp set in the Holiday Mini 2008 Catalog. The techniques used are Masking and Watercoloring. Last year I made a similar card using the Autumn Harvest set (which is still active): http://heatherporto.blogspot.com/2007/10/thanksgiving-watercolor-card.html

  • Happy Blessings
  • Chocolate Chip Classic
  • Riding Hood Red
  • Kiwi Kiss
  • More Mustard
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Really Rust
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Watercolor paper
  • Close to Cocoa
  • Brushed Copper
Stampin' Up! Accessories
  • YoYo Yellow Stampin' Write Marker
  1. Stamp with Chocolate Chip ink on the Close to Cocoa cardstock with the pumpkins/stalks stamp.
  2. Stamp a greeting in Chocolate Chip on the scrap Watercolor Paper.
  3. Stamp two pumpkins in Chocolate Chip on the Watercolor paper. Then stamp two of the same pumpkins on scrap paper and cut them out to use for Masking.
  4. Now put the cut-out pumpkins over the stamped pumpkins - this will protect them from other stamped images.
  5. Now take the stamp with the pumpkins/stalks and stamp across the paper (at least twice) in Chocolate Chip.
  6. Now remove the pieces of scrap. Those pumpkins now appear in "front."
  7. Now you can start "coloring" with ink pads and blender pens using Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, and More Mustard.
  8. Then use the YoYo Yellow marker to color the sunflowers.
  9. Adhere the watercolor main paper on the copper, then adhere to the chocolate.
  10. Adhere that panel to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  11. Stamp a sunflower and vine on the greetin as well, and color.
  12. Adhere the greeting with Stampin' Dimensionals.
