I love the big, bold sentiments in the Good Feelings stamp set from Stampin' Up!® They are perfect for making quick and easy handmade cards! To create a beautiful background for these sentiments, I did an easy watercolor wash in three colors.
I shared how to do this simple watercolor background on this week's Thursday Night Live. If you missed it, you can watch the replay to see exactly how these cards were done.
The true secret to these cards using quality supplies like the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. This thick paper will take a lot of water and to get a nice fluid watercolor background, you want the paper to be WET!

Use vellum and a simple rubber stamping technique to make elegant clean and simple cards (CAS). Vellum is perfect for adding elegance to handmade cards, but sometimes it can be a bit tricky to work with. This simple card making technique using vellum and heat embossing is easy to do, but does need a little drying time.
I shared how to do this technique during this week's Stamp with Me Tuesday Terrific Techniques. And I have a FREE downloadable quick reference guide for the technique below. You'll also find the complete supply list for these sample cards when you click "read more."
If you missed my YouTube live, you can watch the replay to see exactly how I made these CAS cards.
To create these cards, you just need a little vellum, some Basic White cardstock, white embossing powder, Versamark ink, a heat tool, additional ink pads, and a couple of basic dies or punches that are the same shape in two different sizes.
The Nature's Harvest stamp set and coordinating dies work beautifully with the Pretty Prints and Sun Prints patterned paper to create fall cards. Even those these are floral cards, the color palette screams late summer and fall. All the products used on these cards if from Stampin' Up!® The Harvest die set it fabulous because not only does it have dies to cut out the stamped images, it also has label dies and beautiful silhouette dies.
During my live video tutorial on Thursday, I shared how to color the die-cut pieces with Stampin' Blends to create beautiful flowers with the look of hand painting. If you missed, you can check out the replay.
Did you ever do sun prints on photo paper as a kid? It's a pretty cool art project. You leave objects on special photo paper and they leave white outlines on blue. The Sun Prints and Pretty Prints patterned papers are based on this photography technique. The Sun Prints paper have the traditional blues, while the Pretty Prints paper is Calypso Coral, Blackberry Bliss, Shaded Spruce, and Evening Evergreen.
