Introducing Watercolor Wonder & Stylish Sentiments: Birthday

Today, we bring you a mix of watercolor inspiration and vintage-inspired typography……each lovely in their own right and lovelier still when they can used together.  Whether you watercolor regularly or have never picked up a paintbrush before, we hope to leave you inspired to let your inner artist come out and play.  Who knows?  Perhaps a masterpiece is just a brush stroke (or a stamped image) away!

Now that I've made all of the formal introductions, let's get onto the projects!

Rainbows & Sunshine Card
For my first project today I dug out an old favorite, Friendship Jar Fillers.  I thought the paintbrush image in that set would be a wonderful companion for Maile's new Watercolor Wonder set.

Paintbrushes
I stamped the paintbrushes in True Black ink and then added various stroke images from Watercolor Wonder, making it look as thought the paintbrushes did the work!  I used Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores and New Leaf inks for that.

Sentiment
I added this phrase from Up, Up & Away Sentiments, perfectly appropriate for the rainbow color scheme.

Down
The card front layer was attached to a Raspberry Fizz Card base.

Wish Big Card
For my next project I wanted to try adding smears of Stickles to the paint strokes to add a bit of sparkle, and I am really happy with the results!

Focal closeup
I stamped a few different paint stroke images to create this focal point.  On several of them, I inked the edges with a slightly darker color to add more depth.  I used Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile, Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado.  After I completed the stamping, I smeared a bit of Stickles over the paint stroke images, adding shimmer and shine.

Down
The sentiment, from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday, was added using True Black ink.  I dotted the "i" with a tiny star die-cut with the Super Stars Border die which was covered with Stickles as well.  Everything was mounted onto a Classic Kraft card base.

Joy & Smiles Card
My next project is super simple, but I really like the detail that the paint strokes add underneath the sentiment.  And the best thing about this design is that you could do it in several different color schemes and it would look just as good!

Sentiment
I stamped the paint stroke lines first alternating Aqua Mist, Spring Rain and Ocean Tides.  I added one little "splatter" element from Grunge Me to the right of the stripes.

Down
I added this sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday over the paint strokes using Enchanted Evening ink.  The white focal point block was adhered to an Ocean Tides card base.

Sun Will Come Out Card
I pulled out Scattered Showers and it's Additions set for my next project!

Paint drips
I stamped the paint strokes from the top down, to make it look as though it was "raining" in color.  There is a tiny single "droplet" stamp in Scattered Showers that I added in a few key places at the bottom of the strokes.  I used Harvest Gold, Melon Berry, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist and Summer Sunrise for these.

Umbrella
I die-cut and stamped the umbrella using Berry Sorbet ink.  The handle and the sentiment were added in Charcoal Palette ink.

Down
This was adhered to a Smokey Shadow card base.

Special Way Card
This card is another super clean & simple creation, but I love it all the same!

Sentiment
I stamped this sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday onto a crisp white card base using True Black ink.

Border
I then created a raised border strip by stamping paint splatters onto a strip of white cardstock and notching the end.  I used Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Harvest Gold, New Leaf, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist and Winter Wisteria.

Down
The stamped border strip was then adhered to the card base with bits of foam tape for dimension.

Peace Fill Your Soul Card
Peaceful Garden is the next previously released set that I decided to pair up with Watercolor Wonder.

Strokes
I stamped the paint strokes first using Winter Wisteria, Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky and Spring Rain.  Then I added this flower silhouette multiple times in True Black.  Last, I added  a shadow to the flowers stamping them again in Charcoal Palette ink.

Sentiment
I added a sentiment from Peaceful Garden across the center of the card front.  This was adhered to a Winter Wisteria card base.

Belated Birthday Wishes Card
For my last project I wanted to show you how you can create some simple "artistic striped" paper, just like you see on Pinterest frequently, using these awesome new paint stroke images.  I stamped the stripes in Fresh Snow ink onto New Leaf cardstock.

Sentiment
For the focal point, I stamped a strip of Aqua Mist cardstock with another sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday, using New Leaf ink.  This particular sentiment is one of my favorites from the set because I am always looking for a good way yo wish someone a belated birthday!  I notched the bottom of the strip and stitched a New Leaf button at the top.

Down
After adhering the sentiment strip in place with foam tape, I added a bit of Washi tape at the bottom to help lead the eye down the card.

    I actually used watercolour just a couple days ago to make a get well card for my FIL. I probably wouldn’t have thought of it if you hadn’t been posting so many pretty watercolour cards lately! I didn’t want to colour a car image so I used two blue paints and just swiped them across the image. These stamps would have made it faster and easier!

    Watercolor is so much fun. Reminds me of when I was a kid in school.

Thank you for showing us how its done the RIGHT way!!

    Elizabeth T. says:

    It’s been a while since I tried a watercolor project with my stamps. I’m now excited about trying it again. I think I might start with Easter cards, mixing pastel colors. Nichole’s “Sun Will Come Out” card really caught my eye; the “raining colors” are so pretty.

    the sentiments and typographic styling are incredible! the watercolor sets looks really clever and i love how you combined it with other images, giving us ideas of how to use the set to play with other sets and create more graphic ideas. im just not sure though, the watercolor set feels a bit like “cheating” to me :), presenting an artistic technique that didnt really happen

  • 437

    I’ve been doing quite a bit of watercolor technique lately and I love the look! I also love the Stylish Sentiments Birthday. The font combo is so trendy & stylish. Must have! πŸ™‚

    Becs Attwood says:

    One can never have too many Birthday Sentiment sets – that is certainly the most useful card type in my experience – and these ones are a fun, trendy version that would get plenty of use at my place! And Maile’s watercolor set is very smart – so many fun possibilities with this one.
    Wish I had time to play along with the challenge but with work all day and my father-in-law coming to dinner it’s not going to happen today.

    Oy, I’m a gonner! I haven’t been this excited about a new release in a long while because I’ve had to curtail my spending. But this one? This one will break the bank….because I HAVE to!

  • 456

    This new watercolor set is just perfect! You would think there would already be stamps for this, ’cause it’s ideal, but there aren’t, so I think it’s absolutely perfect that Papertrey & Maile now created this! I looooove it! Amazing ideas already, what a fabulous set! And bday cards are always the most to be made here, so already have ideas for those as well!
    Hugs, Wendy

It always appeared a little too sloppy for me, but after seeing the cards today, I am excited to see this new stamp set. Not saying I’m sold on it yet, but I am very interested. Now birthday cards are another thing. Coming from a big family, it seems I never have enough birthday cards ready. I am always making a birthday card and am looking for new sentiments for these cards. I am very excited to see the new Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamp set.

  • 684
    Carola says:

    I love the effects that the watercolouring technique can create and I like to try that technique from time to time. The samples shown in this technique are very beautiful and I especially like where the paint strokes are applied more or less as background and then just a sentiment is added on top of it. Here you can “play” with different colors and thus each time obtain a different card.

  • 685

    Gorgeous watercolour cards. Love the back & forth strokes in Watercolor Wonder πŸ™‚
