Happy Watercolor Resist

How can you resist smiling in the face of this bright and cheery card?? Don't 'resist' it!! This fun Happy Watercolor stamps set in the Occasions 'Let's Celebrate' mini catalog is so very pretty, one of my favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Mini!!  I was sad to see that it will not be in the upcoming New Catalog (so grab yours NOW!).  Enjoy this fun Crayon Resist Tutorial and let me know what you think.

Using the pretty poppy from the Happy Watercolor stamp set and stamping it with Chocolate Chip ink on the Very Vanilla card stock.
 
Highlight the flower with a White Crayon (I love having kids - lol - the amount of crayons I collect....)  This process is hard to see exactly where you highlight but since it's a watercolor project, this is still fun and looks sharp.
 
Using the Watercolor schmere in Calypso Coral ink and stamp over the blossom.  Rub the top of the stamped image to reveal the resist of the White Crayon!!
Shhhh - a secret, just between us??  (lol) I love and use my Color Coach DAILY!  From my wardrobe to my crafting projects it travels well (in my purse when shopping - no joke) and helps to combine the coolest of colors that I couldn't imagine using or putting together for a WOW project that is balanced!
 
Accenting this and highlighting the color recommendations, use the Wild Wasabi ink to stamp the sentiments around the stem - this is a fun abstract highlight to what should be a green stem - lol.
Adding texture and interest to this pretty card is easy (while mimicking the flower) with this *Retiring *Flower Garden embossing folder on the Last Chance List!  Run the folder and card stock through the Big Shot for a WOW accent that will not take away from the pretty stamped flower.
I have to admit - this may not be my favorite color but it came together so well!!  I adore the stamp set and how this embossing folder highlights the stamped image!  Apply the stamped card stock to raise above the embossed image with our Stampin' Dimensional adhesive.

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
