Project Thursday ~ Thank You CAS Card Set

PreciousRemembrance-FallThankYouCardSet-HelenGullett-01

Hello everyone… Happy Thursday! I hope you all have been fun time enjoying Summer with your loved ones. Today, for Project Thursday, I have a set of Thank You cards to share with you. I created these cards using the Thanks Stamp Set and Fall Colors Stamp Set.

I love Summer, but I cannot wait to enjoy Fall, soon! The Fall Color combos is my inspiration to create the backgrounds for these CAS cards. Started with stamped the leaves and dots splatters images from the Fall Colors Stamp Set on watercolor papers using VersaMark Ink Pad and then I sprinkled some of white/glitter embossing powder. I heat set the images with craft heater.

Using medium round brush, I added clean water on the paper, just randomly wet the paper. Then, I picked up the yellow, orange, red, and green watercolor paints with the brush and added them on the wet paper. I let the water did the work to blend the colors together. This watercoloring technique is called wet-on-wet. The heat-embossed images resist the watercolor paints, and this is called the heat-embossing/watercolor resist technique.

I speed up the drying process by using craft heater from the back of the watercolor paper. This way is safer for the heat-embossed images to not to melt again. After all panels dried, I cut them using one of the Crazy Double Stitched Rectangles Dies.

I stamped the faux stitch border image from the Thanks Stamp Set directly on the white cards with VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad. I also stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and then trimmed them with scissors.

I added the watercolored panels on the center of the card bases with dries-clear adhesive glue. Next, I added the sentiments on the card with 3D foam adhesive. I added some clear sequins to embellish the cards. And… They are done.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you all are inspired to create. See you all next time!
