Best Birds Watercolor Cards using Stampin' Up!® Supplies

This week I have focused on another of the new bundles from Stampin' Up! The Best Birds stamp set coordinating framelits and I had already pictured what I wanted to do with this set. 

As usual, with my eclectic style I had to use some complimentary stamps and for this set of cards I chose the versatile Water color Wash large background stamp.

Here is the card

This is the first of 8 cards I made; all slightly different but staying within a similar theme. You can see that I've used the lovely crosshatched stamp over the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Wash stamp and then dry embossed with a now retired Folder.

See how beautifully the framelits cut out the birds and branch shapes?

Lots of slight variation in colour combinations and arrangements of the birds and branches, but I kept the cards similar by stamping everything in Soft Suede and limiting the water colouring to Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Old Olive and Soft Suede throughout. 

I sponged the edges of the card with Soft Suede to achieve the look I wanted. And I used both the Blender Pen and an Aqua Painter for my colouring.

If you would like to create with this stamp set you can order it on-line via my Stampin' Up!® store

  1. Wow! These cards are beautiful. It is the best idea I've seen for this set which I finally bought. I'm not that great at watercoloring though so loved your color examples. Blessings on your craft. USA fan.
