Thursday Stamping Club May Meeting Cards

 This months meeting focused on water coloring with markers.   We used the Aqua painters and the SU water color paper to do the focal piece.  As promised  here is the recipe for our cards.

This first card uses the On the Grow Stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog stamped with STAZON black.  Then we water colored with Wild Wasabi for the grass and leaves;  Marina Mist and Bashful Blue for the jar and shadow; Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirquette for the flowers.  Then we added the tiny pearls from the SU Jewels.  This tiny pearl just makes the flowers pop.  The card is made with Baja Breeze DSP from the Subtle collection and Baja Breeze and Natural white card stock.  A little bow in the Baja Breeze Seam binding is added.  We embossed the lower half of the Natural White front to coordinate with the polka dot DSP  The Thursday Stampers all did a great job water coloring and made beautiful cards.

 We used the same water color techniques to do this second card with the butterfly and flower stamps from the Nature's Walk stamp set.  This card uses the Wild Wasabi DSP and card stock and ink; and Baja Breeze card stock and ink.   The butterfly details are colored with a little So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and outlined with Not Quite Navy.  A little Marina Mist was added for depth to the flowers too.  Every piece is sponged to add depth.

 This last card is a little different and uses the Bright Collection colors.  Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo with the ribbon and buttons from the SAB catalog.  Recognize the card?  It is a case from the SAB catalog but different stamps.  This is the perfect card for a young person or friend.  Fun card to make.  Stamps used are the Happy Birthday stamp from the Something to Celebrate set, the top stamp in Daffodil Delight is from the Painted Petal set and the little heart is from the Build a Cupcake set.   All products used are from Stampin'UP!
