WWC281 – Heidi\’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello and welcome!  This is my design team card for Watercooler Wednesday\’s All About Occasions Challenge and Heidi is our hostess.

I\’ve created a birthday card using a faux watercoloring technique.  I used bright summer colors and added a bold birthday sentiment die-cut using navy cardstock. 

Supplies Used:
Altenew Inked Lotus stamp and die bundle
Altenew Golden Peach Embossing Powder
Distress Inks:  Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin, Pickled Raspberry, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn
Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday die cut
Picket Fences Blending Brushes
Watercolor Paper
Navy Cardstock (for sentiment die cut)
Cream A2 card base

I am also playing along at:
The Flower Challenge: Summer or Fall I love summer and used bright, happy colors that I associate with summer.

Inspired By \”Pretty Blossoms\”  I was inspired by the floral theme and the colors in the bouquet.

I am so pleased you stopped by and hope to see your card in our challenge gallery.

  1. This is beautiful…that diecut sentiment really makes this gorgeous floral stand out! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Paper Players this week as we celebrate 500 challenges!


  2. I love that gorgeous Lotus image of Altenew's you've used for this card, Karen. Such a fun image to bring to life with those vivid colours and heat embossing. Adding the simple navy die-cut sentiment is the perfect finishing touch.
