There is 1 BIG reason to love simple watercolor cards – they are BEAUTIFUL! Ok, so the second top reason to love simple watercolor cards is that they are easy and anyone can make these!

Last Friday I shared a card and video showing some easy watercoloring techniques.  Today, I have more easy water coloring but using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set. I so enjoyed coloring the horse, I just could not put the aqua painter and watercolor paper away.  With today’s card design idea I’ll show you a few different things like watercoloring inside of an embossed image.  These cards turned out so beautiful, at least I think so!


After filming the video I added the NOBLE PEACOCK RHINESTONES and the greeting.  It sure finished off the cards.

Don’t Get Hung Up on What Goes With What

I know, that’s kinda of a weird heading, but I see it happening all the time (and I do it myself!)


What I am talking about is when you look through the Stampin’ Up! catalog, we tend to THINK that products shown together can only be used together.  That is NOT the case at all and here is a great example.  I absolutely love these NOBLE PEACOCK RHINESTONES!  They are the perfect embellishment for these cards!


As always, the pictures just don’t do justice to these cards!


Colors I Used & Card Recipe


All cards have the same basic card recipe, just different colors:

  • Watercolor Paper:  5″ x 3 3/4″
  • Colored Layer:  5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
  • Card Base:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
  • Inside:  4″ x 5 1/4″

The card base on this one is Purple Posy

and finally……
For the insides, I just stamped the greeting in Black and the flowers in one of the colors I used on the front.
