Card Set: Watercolor Flourishes – In Color 2015-2017

I’ve been fascinated with card sets lately. You’d have most occasions or events covered and they’re perfect to give as gifts themselves. I wanted to do something with the In Color 2015-2017 so I’d have five beautiful cards in my set – Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, Cucumber Crush, Tip Top Taupe, and Watermelon Wonder (picture below clockwise from top left).

Watercolor Flourishes Set

I’ve been dying to use my Flowering Flourishes stamp set for a card. It was kind of funny how I’ve used that stamp set for making gift boxes, tons of envelopes, and even as a background for a home decor I gave as a gift to a friend, but I’ve never used it in a card before.

Watercolor Flourishes - Watermelon WonderI was playing with different ways to use it in a plain and simple card set when it came to me… Watercolor Wings stamp set. Duh! It was still simple and easy enough to make, but the butterfly would give it that little pizzazz that I wanted. Perfect!

That has always been my favorite part of cardmaking – figuring out what I want to do. It has always been the most fun and exciting part of the whole process. What I’ve always liked about Stampin’ Up! is how they made it so easy for non-crafters like me to make something so awesome without taking away the fun part of still being able to think up of new ways to make your cards unique and totally you.

For the purpose of the supplies list below, I’ve used Watermelon Wonder. All the butterflies in the whole set were stamped with Tip Top Taupe.
