Spellbinders feature - All the Sentiments collection by Stampendous

You can find me over on the Spellbinders Blog today with a sweet birthday set! There are several sets in this month's release featuring sentiments, and a really clever envelope die set with a gift card pop up element - I used the envelope base to make a box as well.

One of the stamp sets has a bunch of beautiful sympathy sentiments for loss and difficult times - this card didn't fit with my other projects, so I'll share that one here instead.

The rounded rectangles I used here are part of the envelope set I mentioned. For my card base, I lined the die up with the top cut line just outside the fold. I cut the watercolor paper panel with the smaller rectangle. I stamped the floral image first and used a Karin marker to dot in the blooms, misting the panel so those colors would bleed out (I have a tutorial for this technique HERE). After that dried, I finished painting, drying between layers. Below you can see all the layers in the blooms - I dotted more with the Karin marker then moved to paint pens to create some contrast.

The watercolored panel needed 'something' to break up the white space, so I ended up cutting a narrow strip from the middle to allow the base color to show through.

The rest of this April collection lends itself well to birthday cards, gifts and more! I hope you'll check out out the release and the rest of my projects!
