Watercolor Wedding Card

We are so happy to be attending the wedding of a friend this month.  Our friend is 52 and has never been married and he is engaged to a lady that is 51 and has never been married!

Water color Wedding Card on Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment Paper with Kuretake watercolors.
I love to watercolor this beautiful stamp from Concord and 9th (Happy Day).  I used Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigment Paper, which is a lovely soft eggshell color.  I silver embossed then used my Kuretake watercolors.  I used a stitched die to trim the panel down and then adhered to a kraft A2 card.

I am entering this card in:

Sisterhood of Crafters Any Occasion Challenge and my card is for a wedding.

Handmade Wedding Card

My daughter is getting married in our backyard in September so I wanted to make a handmade card with seasonal color.  I LOVE The Concord and 9th Happy Day stamp set.

Handmade Wedding Card.
I silver embossed the cake and sentiment on watercolor paper and then watercolored with Daniel Smith watercolors.  I love the bright vibrant colors.  
It was cloudy while I was photographing so I thought I would try some outdoor shots.  Nontraditional for cards, but I like them.
My inspiration for the orange flower came from Just us Girls Challenge #451
I frequently enter the Addicted to Stamp Challenge as I like their prompts.  This week is \”Make Your Mark\”.

Watercolor Birthday Cake

I designed this card for the Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge #84.  I saw this challenge several days ago and I had so many ideas that I needed to ponder my card for a while.  I knew I wanted to make a birthday card and yesterday I decided to use my just purchased gold embossing powder for a watercolor card.  I designed it for my girly-girl sister\’s upcoming birthday.

Happy Day Concord and 9th Stamp set.

Here is the inspiration graphic:

For my card, I focused on:

  • The Cake Theme
  • The Pink, Turquoise/Aqua, Purple Color Scheme

Happy Day Stamps by Concord & 9th

This is my first time using this new to me stamp set – Happy Day from Concord & 9th.  I used Daniel Smith watercolors in Quinacrindone Pink, Quinacrindone Purple, Ultramarine Turquoise, and Green Gold.  The embossing powder is Ranger Princess Gold.

I am looking forward to giving this card to my sister.

UPDATE:
I am very excited that my card was chosen \”Inspiring Stand Out\” in the Inspired by All The Little Things\” challenge!
