Hi Friends! It’s a gorgeous Saturday morning here in NS (I live just outside of Antigonish, on route to Cape Breton). Up since 5am (I love my mornings) and I’ve already had my coffee and I’m about to start watering my garden and flowers before our heat wave hits again. It’s already 27′ and it’s only 6:30am!
Yesterday I made some thank you cards that were quick and easy but I just LOVED how they turned out! These are one-layer cards with a fun technique using our clear blocks to create a background. You simply ink a clear block, mist lightly with water and stamp onto your card stock! I made a video a couple of years ago using this technique, which you can check out here.
I had been wanting to use this watercolour block technique with the “Forever Fern” stamp set when I saw that my dear friend, Kay Smith, had created cards doing just that – and they were gorgeous! So I cased Kay’s design as my inspiration and I used the “Thank You” sentiment from one of my very favourite Paper Pumpkin stamp sets (“Hugs from Shelli” May 2019).
- All online orders will receive a hand stamped card in the mail (as long as I have your address!) and 12 step-by-step stamping tutorials will be emailed to you as token of my appreciation for your online order!
