Spring Watercolor Bouquet
I love the soft look of a handmade water-colored card.
This card was made using the Hello Spring Stamp and Die Set from the Maker’s Movement.
Just for you…I’ve created simple step by step instructions on how to make the card.

- In the Hello Spring Stamp and Die Set, there are several stamps that have a coordinating die that matches the stamp.
- Stamp a flower using blue ink onto a piece of watercolor paper.
- Using the Crossover Fabric & Paper Cutting System*, die-cut two flowers from white paper using the die that matches the stamped flower image.
- Run both of the die cut flowers through the Xyron Create a Sticker Mini* with repositionable adhesive to create masks for stamping.
- Place the mask onto the stamped flower image and stamp a second flower image slightly overlapping the first flower.
- By using the mask, you create the look of one flower behind the other.
- Place masks on both of the stamped flower image. Start adding the background images by stamping small pink flowers, ferns, and leaves.
- Remove masks and watercolor the stamped flowers using a water-brush*.
- I like to use dye ink to watercolor. I apply the ink to a simple grid that I printed onto copy paper and laminated. Dip the wet tip of the water-brush* into the ink and paint your images. (You can also use a small paintbrush and water.)
- After the painted images have dried, stamp the center of the flowers using small stamps from the Hello Spring Stamp and Die Set.
- Cut frames using the Nested Stitched Rectangles Dies.
- Adhere water-colored image, frames, and layers onto a 4 ½” x 5 ½” blue dot card.
- Stamp another flower with blue ink onto watercolor paper. Watercolor the flower as before. Cut the flower out using the coordinating die and the Crossover II Fabric & Paper Cutting System*.
- Mount onto the lower right corner of the card using a thin foam mounting square.
- Stamp “Hello” onto a small white banner cut from the small banner die found in the Hello Spring set. Trim banner to size and adhere under the raised flower.
- Add a simple sheer ribbon to the top of the card to finish.
