Deco Diamonds and Finetec Watercolors

Hey there!  It has been a couple of months since I have posted a card.  Summer has just flown by and getting to the craft room has been difficult.  I actually started this set of cards in June.  

I used Simon Says Stamp Deco Diamonds for my background on Gina K Black Onyx and Papertrey Ink Smokey Slate cardstocks.  I couldn't make up my mind on what color embossing power to use so I used both Brutus Monroe Alabaster and Ranger Princess Gold.

To add color to my image, I used Finetec Pearl Watercolors.  I just painted it on and did not worry about blending the colors.  For my sentiment I used a combination of Simon Says Stamp Big U dies and Honey Bee Large Thanks die.


For this card I used Ellen Hutson Holiday Words to die cut the word Love.  I think it is now discontinued but Ellen Hutson Classic Block Alpha  die set can also work.  To embellish, I broke out the Studio Katia April Crystals.


I loved the way the Finetec Pearl Watercolors looked on the dark cardstock; so I looked for another stamp set that I could paint.  I settled on Altenew Mega Succulent stamp set.


Using scraps as borders is a great way to use up those pieces.  I used Altenew Painted Poppy along with Altenew Birthday Builder  to make these cards.  I embellished using Studio Katia Sparkling Clear Confetti.


Hope you loved these cards as much as I do.  Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to subscribe to the YouTube Channel and hit the like button while you are there.
