Congratulation and Best Wishes Wedding Card - Sentimental Calla Lily Stamp


Sentimental Calla Lily is a sentimental set indeed! The beautiful calla lilies reminded me of the flowers from my wedding, and inspired me to create a wedding themed card. I stamped the image and then colored it using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added just a bit of color and then blended it using a water brush. When working with watercolor, remember to allow each application of color to dry before adding the next layer of color.

I then added a few splatters of color. To achieve the splatters, I colored with a green marker onto my craft mat and added water to the ink with a paint brush. I then flicked the paint brush to get the splatters.

Happy Hello Card - Happy Mail Stamp Set


The final stamp set from this release is the new Happy Mail incentive stamp set. If you aren't familiar with the Incentive Stamps, they are stamp sets that you can get for free when you order $75 or more of product from Gina K Designs.

For this card, I stamped the envelope image in various colors onto a piece of white cardstock to create a fun background design. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut it using the smallest die from the Gina K Designs Double Stitched Circle Die.
