We are in the middle of Stampin' Up!'s amazing promotion, Sale-a-Bration. It is all about free products and who doesn't love that! Today on my YouTube Live (replay is below), I created cards featuring one of these free items, the Watercolor Melon Stamp Set. It is just the perfect stamp set to get you in a summery mood, especially when right now it's -30ºC outside!
This stamp set only has images, no sentiments. So I wanted to share how to create some fun backgrounds and accents to really show off the stamp set without really needing any patterned paper.
This first card is just a simple repeating pattern. Once you've created the background, you can add any sentiment you like.
This one was a lot of fun to create. I like the softer colour palette here, which you can do by switching out your red for a pink. The Blending Brushes are what I used to create this background and they are surprisingly easy to use. You definitely don't need to be a colouring expert.
Finally, I thought I would make an extra card this week! I wanted to use all of the images that come with this Watercolor Melon Stamp Set. Did you know that the full watermelon coordinates with the Modern Oval Punch?! How brilliant is that! You can even use the punch to cut out the half watermelon too. Just genius if you ask me. It's always so hard to cut out round shapes!
