Regatta ~ Stampers With An Attitude (Blog Hop)

This month, our Stampers With An Attitude team is sharing Mother's Day projects or a project created using the Regatta paper kit.     

If you have come here from the Scrap Stamp Share blog, you are on the right path!  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.    


With a nautical theme, these papers from the Regatta kit make a great masculine card.  The sentiment from Stamps of Approval is embossed using white embossing powder, and the shape is cut using the Artistry Cricut cartridge.  And the design of the card is Pattern #20 from Make It From Your Heart Volume 1.

Triple Duty Card!

Triple duty for this card:




Using only the colors Fern and White, this card has 3 strips of background & texture paper, and uses a spunky sentiment from the Birthday Funnies stamp set for Jeanette's birthday card (#cards4jeanette). 

So this card is wishing Jeanette her most wonderful year yet!!  Her company has definitely changed the lives of thousands of women around the world, and we all appreciate Jeanette's creativity and business sense!  Here's hoping for many more birthdays to come.  

The Fern textured paper is actually slightly embossed and is found in our Paper Fundamentals collection.  To continue the rounded pattern look of the Fern Paper Fundamentals, the Scallop edge punch was used on the top and bottom of the sentiment image, as well as the edges of the white decorative strip with a Fern Thick Twine bow.  The basic design for the card is in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2, #28.

Watercolor!

Welcome to our Watercolor Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  All projects will be created using Close To My Heart watercolor paints or watercolor pencils.  Both of these products are a great way to add some soft color to your stamped work.        

If you arrived here from Show and Tell, with Michelle, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects spotlighting watercolor.  


After selecting the Pretty Simple design from the Originals Card Confidence Program, this card took very little time to create. After stamping a bird image from the Sunshine Birdies onto Watercolor paper, the paints added some soft color to the bird. Then the Watercolor was also used to "ground" the bird, and to add a bit of color to the edges of the stamped image pieces.  Papers from the Charlotte kit were used as color inspiration, and to accent the card. The sentiment is from the For Family stamp set, and works well with the sweet bird.  Just a bit of sparkle is found on the bird's head feathers, and with a butterfly from the Playful Puffies embellishments.
