Loved & Admired Week - Day 2

April 25, 2018


Katie here with a technique to share with you today using Avery Elle's new liquid watercolors along with the Loved and Admired stamp set.

First, I stamped and heat embossed the wreath image onto a panel of watercolor card stock using Avery Elle's Rose Gold embossing powder.

To watercolor the wreath image, I added drops of Avery Elle's Liquid Watercolors in Mint to Be and Cherry to the chambers of two waterbrushes.  Using the waterbrushes, I easily added watercolor pigments to the wreath image.   If the color is too pale, you can add more drops of the watercolor pigment.  If the mixed color is too intense, add a little more water to the chamber.  Once you are finished with the watercolor in the waterbrush, just rinse out the chamber and the brush to switch colors or go back to plain water.

I die cut the wreath and stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with more Rose Gold embossing powder.  I die cut the bottom of the white card stock panel with the scallop Dotter Border Elle-ments die before adhering the panel to a mint card base.

I put together a quick video to show you this technique in action and how my card came together.  I hope you'll check it out!


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Loved & Admired Week - Day 1

April 24, 2018

Hi there!

Elena here, with a card featuring Loved & Admired. The large-scaled oval wreath and that sassy sentiment are so fun!

I did a watercolor wash on the background using our new watercolors. Then, I colored and die-cut the wreath and figured out where I wanted it. I then white-heat-embossed the sentiment. I obviously can't stop using the little critters from Party Pals - I fit the little bunny behind the wreath at the bottom, and added a heart in front for a pop of color.

This sentiment makes me smile every time I see it. I love out-of-the-box greetings!

I hope you like what I created! Thanks for stopping by!
