Workshop Wonder – Project 5

Happy Congratulations is a beautiful stamp set that should be added to everyone’s collection.  Although it’s title suggests you might use it to offer your congratulations by papercraft, the very versatile phrase “May happiness be your destination” lends itself to birthdays and well wishes, as well as the usual host of congratulatory occasions such as weddings, engagements, graduations…

For this project, the ladies and I embarked upon some watercolouring using the Aqua Painter.  We used the bold & timeless yellow-blue-pink trio.


How to:

Using Black StazOn ink, stamp the lantern outline in the middle of your card front.  We used Whisper White cardstock, but you could also use Watercolour Paper or Shimmery White.

Before opening, squeeze your Stampin’ Up! ink pad in the middle to release the ink onto the lid.  Open the ink pad and using the Aqua Painter, take some colour from the lid and transfer it to your cardstock using long sweeping strokes.  We used Daffodil Delight for the end two lanterns, Bermuda Bay for the middle lantern and Melon Mambo for the end two lanterns.  Once all the watercolouring was done, we stamped the lanterns in corresponding colours.

We lined up our sentiment (stamped in Bermuda Bay) with the Stamp-a-ma-jig to ensure perfect placement.  If haven’t heard of the SAMJ – book a demo now and see it in action.  Your card making will never be the same again.  If you haven’t bought it yet, add it to your March order with a few other products and choose one of the amazing free products from the SAB catalogue!

If you’ve had a good look at the Occasions catalogue, you’ll see all the wonderful watercolouring stamps & accessories.  It’s definitely ‘on trend’.  The Watercolour Wonder DSP is my all-time favourite DSP.  The Happy Watercolour Stamp Set is currently hitching a ride to my house with Australia Post.  I look forward to welcoming it to the family and creating beautiful cards with it.  I’ll be sure to show you some of them here.  Kelly x
