Another By the Bay Watercolor Card Plus Seaside Embossing Folder

Today I’m sharing another card I made using the By the Bay stamp set with inks and an Aqua Painter. I used the same colors to watercolor the stamped image as I did before, but I cropped it down and matted it with Basic Black cardstock and put it on an background embossed with the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It’s amazing to me how different the two cards look. You can see the first one here.

And even though I colored this one the same way, no two water colored images are the same. That’s something I love about watercolor. Also you don’t have to be so precise as with some other techniques. Look closely and you’ll see that I went outside some of the lines. And I didn’t fill in absolutely all of the image – you can see some white specks here and there (other than the door and house trim I tried to leave white.) And it’s perfectly okay.  It’s very freeing, not feeling like you have to try to be perfect.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ (2 pieces: one for the inside of the card base, and one to emboss for the front)
  • *Basic Black CS cut to 3-3/8″ x 2-5/8″
  • Watercolor Paper cut to 3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ (This just happened to be the size after I trimmed it down around the image, and I cut the Basic Black mat* to be 1/8″ larger in both directions.)

Stamped with the By the Bay stamp set:

  • seaside cottage image in black Stazon ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper (It was originally a bigger piece of paper, but I cut it down to 3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ after coloring it.)

Embossed using the Seaside Embossing Folder:

  • one of the Whisper White CS pieces

Colored using an Aqua Painter and ink refills:

  • houses in Cherry Cobbler
  • roofs in Basic Gray
  • greenery in Old Olive
  • wall in Gray Granite
  • water in Tranquil Tide
  • sky in Pool Party
  • NOTE: I put dots of ink on a large acrylic block that I used as my palette.
  • For colors you don’t need much of, like the Basic Gray and Cherry Cobbler, you can use a Stampin’ Write Marker to “draw” a little ink on the block.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • embossed layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • watercolor layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer glued onto the embossed layer
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
  • I have not yet added a stamped sentiment. If I do I will put it on the inside. Or I may just use it as a blank note card.

By the Bay Watercolor Card

Today’s card is very very simple. One stamp, three pieces of paper, an Aqua Painter, and some ink refills. That’s all it is. The By the Bay Sale-a-bration stamp set really does all the work for you.

I was going to stamp the image onto Watercolor Paper, then crop it down to just the stamped image area. But once I saw it on the larger piece of paper, I decided to try my hand a making a watercolor similar to some I’ve seen in galleries, with no real border except where the ink stops.

You may be surprised when you see which colors I used. They are pretty deep, dark colors, but they are much lighter when they are watered down. I decided not to put a sentiment on this card. You could use it as is for an all occasion notecard, or you could stamp a sentiment on the inside. I really like only the image on the front.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Tranquil Tide card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Watercolor Paper cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the By the Bay stamp set:

  • the largest image in the set

Colored using an Aqua Painter and inks:

  • sky in Pool Party
  • water in Tranquil Tide
  • greenery in Old Olive
  • wall in Gray Granite
  • houses in Cherry Cobbler, and roofs in Basic Gray
  • NOTE: There are a few ways to do this, but I put a drop of each color on a clear acrylic block, then used the Aqua Painter filled with water to pick up the color.
  • Let the ink dry completely before doing anything else with it. You can speed up this process using a Heat Tool.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • colored layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Part of My Story Painted Seasons Card

The Part of My Story stamp set is free with a $50 order during Sale-a-bration, and has wonderful sentiments for telling people just how special they are. For today’s card, I’ve paired it with the new Painted Seasons bundle (free with a $100 order) and its coordinating die set, the Four Seasons Framelits. All the colors came from the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.

I’m sure there are some people you’d like to tell, “the world needs more people like you.” Do it with this card.
