Gratitude

I am seriously in love with the new stamp line from Elizabeth Craft Designs. These large images are simply meant to be colored and with the new coordinating die set, there simply are no limits to what you can do with them. Today I am creating this winter bloom from the Beautiful Blooms Gratitude stamp set and coordinating die set.

Step One: Using a watercolor crayon, spread a collection of coordinating colors onto a glass or plastic sheet. I used my Jane Davenport watercolor crayons in Moonkiss, Pucker Up, French Kiss, and Pout.

Step Two: Spray the crayon with lots of clean water.

Step Three: Dip a piece of Watercolor Paper into the wet crayon. Wiggle the paper ink the water soluble wax and lift. Let dry.

Step Four: Splatter the paper with extra ink to break up the mush.

Step Five: Die cut the Watercolor Paper with the Fitted Rounded Rectangle die set. Die cut a second piece of Watercolor Paper with a large die from the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set. Color the edges of the second larger piece with a coordinating watercolor crayon. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, attach the two die cuts to each other.

Step Six: On a scrap piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock, stamp images from the Beautiful Blooms Gratitude stamp set. Color in the images with alcohol markers. I used my copics in R02, R00, R000, R0000 and G02, G00, G000.

Step Seven: Die cut the images with the Gratitude die set.

Step Eight: Assemble the card. Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the two die cut sheets to an A2 card frame.

Step Nine: Adhere the floral images using a liquid adhesive making sure to layer them over each other. I used Kids Choice Glue.

Step Ten: Stamp and die cut a sentiment from the Gratitude stamp and die set. Adhere to the card frame using liquid adhesive.

Step Eleven: Add several dollops of Craft Drops in Pearl Rose.

I am loving these new dies that coordinate so beautifully with the Beautiful Blooms stamp sets. They allow so many different crafting options. How would you craft with the addition of these die sets? Let me know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting.
