Domestic Goddess Apothecary

 Here's the last of the three cards we made in my Stamp Club this month featuring water coloring and the Apothecary Art stamp set. I also had fun using the new Labels framelit, the Framed Tulips EB folder along with the Designer Frames EB folder on this card...too fun!
Domestic Goddess is the name of the DSP used on this card. It's one of my favorite paper collections because of its great color combination. What am I going to do when Poppy Parade gets retired? (And to think that I wasn't really that fond of it when it was introduced a couple of years ago, now it's my favorite red.)

Apothecary Vellum Birthday card

Patty Bennet posted a cool tutorial on her blog using a water coloring on vellum technique. I used this technique to water color one of the embossed Apothecary Art stamp set images and the result is beautiful!
This is one of the cards I put together for my Stamp Club ladies this month. The theme for this month's cards was water coloring using the Apothecary Art stamp set. We also included one of the new framelits and edgelits, which added some fun details to the cards.

Razzleberry Apothecary Art

Here's a long overdue post...and yes, I'm still here :-) Today I'm excited to be sharing one of the cards we're making in this month's Stamp Class and Club. It features the beautiful Apothecary Art stamp set along with watercoloring, which is one of my favorite techniques...I love to color! This stamp set is perfect for watercoloring. I also added a sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set.
The Adorning Accent edgelit and embossing folder created a beautiful accent for the Crumb Cake panel and Whisper White trim. I'll be sharing more cards from this month's class throughout the month, so I hope you stop back in soon! Have a great day:-)
