Watercolor Confirmation Card

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Watercolor Confirmation Card.


I made this one for my ex neighbors' son.

This was super easy and fast to create. The design is similar to CAS Christening Cards I shared here on my blog last week, I just went with different coloring techniques. You can find them here.

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. I watercolored front panel of the card with a Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch. After adding couple layers of color, drying them between with Heat It Tool, I splattered the card with water and dried the card. I again splattered the card with white acrylic paint mixed with water and left the card dry on air. Acrylic splatters dried with Heat It Tool do not look as good as splatters dried on air.

After drying, I glued two die-cut birds directly on the card and my card was finished. :o)


I got die-cut birds I used and many many more from friend Valentina of Barvito malo mestoThank you Valentina!! :o)

Cards measurements: 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")
List of supplies:
  • Canson XL Mixed Media Paper, 300 g
  • birds die-cuts (got this and many more from friend Valentina)

Wedding Card no. #1

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you a Wedding Card I made by request for a couple that's getting married today. I personally don't know them, but I do want to wish them all the best in their common life, a lot of love and understanding, and their marriage to be beautiful as music. :o)


I used BEAUTIFUL Stamping Bella 'uptown couple BRETT and BRENDA get married' rubber stamp. This is my first stamp from Stamping Bella and the only one I have for now. :o)

I also used one of my favorite font I downloaded from dafont: Impact Label Font. Love it!! :o)
Important: Read licences before downloading.

I stamped the image on a watercolor paper, left it dry for couple minutes and colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. I'm so satisfied with my coloring of this couple. :o)


After coloring I had no idea what to do with the image. I stared at the image couple days and decided to go with CAS design. No surprise. LOL :o)

I glued a note sheet paper stripe directly on a white top folded card base, trimmed the watercolor paper to preferable size, glued it on a 2 mm thick foam sheet rectangle and glued it on the card base.

I printed couple's names and wedding day date on a white cardstock paper (I used two different font sizes), cut them out, traced edges with black marker and got lovely labels, as if I had label maker. I added foam tape on the back of "labels", glued them on the card and my card was finished. :o)
