Stampin' Up!s Pigment Sprinkles Do Not Disappoint!
These new watercolor crystals, available in six bright Stampin' Up! colors, add so much fun and variety to your paper crafting. I'm going to show you just three examples today, but the possibilities are endless. Give them a try!!
There are a number of different ways to apply them to your projects. Here I've used them by simply sprinkling them onto watercolor paper and then spritzing them with water in the Stampin' Spritzers. Set aside and let it dry, from 40 minutes to overnight. That's it! All of these cards started with the same basic piece of watercolor paper, but the design is always varied. Here is an example:
Once you've created this, you can use it like any other card making product. In the first card I punched the paper with our daisy punches, added some faceted dot and glimmer paper centers, a sentiment, sequins, and that was it. So simple and soooo eye-catching! I love it. Note: the black glimmer paper is retired but you can easily substitute our black foil paper.
For the next cards, I put the watercolored paper underneath a piece of Basic Black card stock that was die cut with our Tasteful Backgrounds dies. Oooh these dies! I'm going to run out of time before I run out of ideas for these dies. Please consider adding them to your collection.
Card base, 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
Watercolor paper,3 1/2" x 5" (it just needs to be smaller than the Basic Black front)
Basic Black front, 4" x 5 1/2"
Scraps for die cut words and white embossing
Card inserts, your choice in measurements and color. I used the Stitched Rectangles, and lightly colored card stock.
For this card, I embossed the Basic Black front with our Subtle 3D embossing folder. Both card fronts are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. The sentiment "for everything" is white embossing on Basic Black cardstock 1/2" scrap. I've used the Well Written dies in Melon Mambo for an additional pop!
I hope you enjoy these designs as much as I do. They are happy, versatile, and fun.
Thanks so much for visiting The Stamping Zoo. Please come back soon!
