Triangle Elements

Triangle Elements

zDSC_3842

I loved the card samples Debbie Hughes created in the “Watercolor Masking” class from the Online Card Class – Spring Card Camp 2020 course  which included the “Triangle Elements” die from Simon Says Stamp.  She used the die cut as a mask while water coloring her background panel and then added the painted mask to a second card.

I CASED her card using similar colors and elements.  Ironically, the lesson was on masking, and that is the only thing I did not do – lol!  (I did not have the spray adhesive, and the die cut mask curled as it got wet so I water colored my background and die cut separately.)

I had so much fun painting and splattering – two techniques I rarely do – and made a few more samples:

and here is one painted in brown and gold…

This last one was done on a scrap used to blot off my black versafine ink pad when I was getting a lot of fibers on a project I was working on.  I followed Bonnie’s lead and used my scrap instead of throwing it away!!

I used Kuretake GANSAI TAMBI Water Color paints (blue/green samples were No 54, 58, 62, 64, and 10; brown samples were No 47, 44, and 90).  The stamped greeting was from “The Wetlands” set by Gina K Designs.  The white, heat embossed greeting on the brown sample is from the “Tiny Words” stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and was cut with the Stampin’ Up “Word Window Label” punch (retired).

(inside: wishing you all the best today and throughout the coming year)

This gorgeous wreath stamp is from the “Greenery Invites” set from Art Impressions.  The die set used to make this Joy Fold card base is the “Angel Side Circle Card Die” from Creek Bank Creations (D1952).

Creek Bank Creations also makes a “Card Stand Die” for cards that either do not stand up on their own or look kind of funky when displayed.  The die cut stand folds flat and fits in the envelope with the card – how cute is that?!

I stamped and water colored the image with Tombow Duel Brush Pens (Hunter Green #249, Dark Jade #177, and True Blue #526).  I used these same markers to “smoosh: my side strip panel.

The greeting is from the “Tiny Words” set from Simon Says Stamp and was stamped with Gina K Designs In the Navy ink.  It was then cut out with the Stampin’ Up “Word Window” punch (retired).

I did not properly center my wreath image on the stitched circle that is included with the Angel Side Circle set, so I re-cut it out with a die from the Spellbinders Standard Circles (sm) set and mounted that panel on another stitched circle die cut.  I like the extra layer so it was a happy mistake!

The sentiment on the inside is from the “Happy Birthday to You” set from Gina K Designs.  The stitched panel on the left side of the card and on the inside is also included with the card base set.  Everything else was cut with my paper trimmer.

A quick note – the card base die is 9 1/2 inches long; the sizzix extended platform and cutting plates are recommended.
