Saturday Stamp Day – Sweet Thanks

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all have been recovered from the busy holidays. 🙂 Today, I am here with another Saturday Stamp Day card and video using some of the new goodies I showed in my previous haul video.

It has been a while since I did some watercoloring so today I reached out to my beloved Gansai Tambi watercolor set to create a quick background. (By the way, the big box of 36 colors is currently on “reserve”. However, the two colors I used are also available in the 18 and the 24 set in case you’re interested.) I have one quick tip for doing washes of watercolor…. Simply dab your brush on your paper and add water if you want to create a lighter wash. It really helps! After the background was dry, I looped some white thread and I adhered a pretty wood veneer donut from Dear Lizzy on top of that thread.

The Donut You Know stamp set from Reverse Confetti has some great donut-releated sentiments in it that match the wood veneer donut perfectly. I heat embossed one of the greetings onto a vellum banner and adhered it on top of the watercolored background. Normally I use Glossy Accents to adhere these vellum banners, but today I used Multi Medium Matte from Ranger along with a stylus. This makes it easy to add teeny tiny dots of adhesive behind the white letters. To finish off the card, I used matching Pretty Pink Posh sequins and Dear Lizzy enamel dots. 🙂

That’s it for today. Thank you so much for stopping bye!
