Stampin Up Watercolor Shapes

Sara Douglas is the CEO of Stampin’ Up!®.  Her Mom, Shelli started the company along with her sister more than thirty years ago.  Shelli stepped down as CEO a few years ago and Sara took over the reins.  A couple of weeks ago Sara did a live Facebook video using the stamp set called Watercolors Shapes. Watercolor Shapes is a DisINKtive stamp set which means that each stamp creates different opacities in a single stamp which brings depth to the image.  In Sara’s video, she showed how to make a background using this stamp set.  She just used one stamp and one color to make the entire background.  I decided to use this idea but I wanted to use more than one stamp and more than one color.

I started to make my background using the square stamp with Soft Succulent ink.  Next I stamped the large Fresh Freesia rectangle.  I built the rest of the background from there using Soft Succulent, Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya ink.  I didn’t watch the rest of Sara’s video so I don’t know what she did with her background but I decided it didn’t need a lot more so I just stamped the sentiments from Biggest Wish in Memento Black ink and added a few Matte Black Dots.  Even though I used a purplish color, I think this card would make a good masculine card.

  1. Susan, this is sooooo pretty. I love the color combo and the way you’ve blocked out the colors. I’d go crazy because I couldn’t get the layout. Yours is wonderful
