Step 1: Cut Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock to 3.75"x2". Stamp the sentiment from the Encouragement Stamp set with Black Archival Ink and heat emboss with Super Fine Clear Embossing Powder. (Optional: stamp a second time with the Letter It™ Embossing Pad before heat embossing).
Step 2: Create droplets on the sentiment panel with Distress Inks in Salvaged Patina and Salty Ocean. Use a small brush for finer droplets
Step 3: Cut Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock to 3.75"x5". Create a stenciled pattern by blending Distress Inks through the Treading Hearts stencil, Use Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry, and Kitsch Flamingo.
Step 4: Create a second ink blended pattern on a sheet of Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock cut to 4.25"x5". Use the Organic Stripes stencil and Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin.
Step 5: Layer the sentiment panel and the panel with the stenciled hearts with some black cardstock.
Step 6: Glue the front and mid panel to the card base.
I am an Italian crafter with a huge passion for card making and paper crafting. I currently live in England with my husband, who always supports and encourages me, and is the reason I started exploring my crafty side in the first place. I love crafts in general, but paper crafts really stole my heart! I like bright and cheerful cards, and I am always trying to experiment with new media and techniques.
I love sharing my creations on my blog, YouTube channel and social media, where you can find me as @lauravolpescards. Come over and say hi!
