Happy Watercolour Square Punch Poppies Card

by Joanne James2. May 2014 20:28

Hello everyone - yes, it's Friday at last! And a three day weekend here in the UK too, so bonus! I've been busy working on wedding cards for commissions today so will share those another time. Today I'm sharing one of the cards I made with my ladies in my card class this month. The cards we made all featured the Happy Watercolour stamp set - today's card is a simple card stamped with the poppy stamp:

We punched three squares out of the front of the card (I used a retired square punch for this but you could use the Squares framelits as an alternative), then using the stamp-a-ma-jig to align the images on the inside of the card, we stamped the poppies in black so that they could be seen through the punched 'windows'. Each of the poppies was then overstamped with the large watercolour 'splodge' stamp (I think that is a genuine technical term!) like so:

A simple thank you sentiment on the front of this card provides the finishing touch. This card was as much about getting my ladies used to using a stamp-a-ma-jig; many of them own one, but weren't confident in using it so I've been making sure that at least one card in each class offers the opportunity to practice. You know what they say - practice makes perfect :-) I wouldn't be without mine, that's for sure.

Back tomorrow with another card; until then, happy stampin'!
