Here is my CAS Mix Up June Reminder Card using Stamping + Die Cuts + Acrylic Block Watercolor Stamping with Zig Markers and Alcohol Inks on Copper Tree.
This card was so much fun...I know I say that a lot, but anytime I am stamping I am having fun!
I was playing around with swiping my Zig Markers onto my Acrylic Blocks and then spritzing with water and Stamping onto Arches 140# Cold Press W/C paper, I also played with some die cut copper pieces. Coloring them with Adirondack Alcohol Inks. I used Salmon and Pink Sherbet Alcohol Ink to bring out the pinks and orange glow on my heated copper die cut tree.
The Sizzix "Medium Pine Tree" Die Cut was laying next to my watercolored piece and I said, "Wow, I like that..." Yes, sometimes I talk out loud to myself! I Die cut the layers using my MB Stitched Rectangles and Die Cut the SU Christmas Greetings Peace. I Die cut the Peace twice for extra thickness using Arches Cold Press and W. White Thick then used my Zigs to color the Whisper White Thick layer. I assembled my card using dimensionals and used my SU Fine Tip Glue Pen for my Die Cut Peace.
I realized after all that assembling that I had not stamped an image...not sure if my acrylic stamping counted so.....I searched my Christmas stamps and found the perfect little stamp "& Love" from SU's "Holly Jolly Greetings." One thing I never get rid of are Sentiment Stamp Sets! I used my MISTI for perfect placement and Archival Black Ink for my "& Love." This set is still available and is in the new SU Annual Catty June 1st 2016 to May 31st 2017.
I am so happy with how my Die Cut Christmas card turned out. Hope you like it too. Enjoy and Happy Stamping. You still have until June 24th to join our CAS Mix Up June Challenge :-)
