Winter Hugs and Kisses Knit Card

Hello, Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps fans!  This is Shanna from Caffeinated Craftiness.  I am sharing a colorful card today featuring a super cute and versatile stamp bundle called Knit Sweater Stamp Set.  This set is pictured below and includes 3 wintery stamps that fir multiple occasions.  I am making a watercolor-resist Valentine's Day card today with them. Best part...They are on SALE for a limited time!!

To start I stamped the trio of stamps all over a watercolor card panel in embossing ink, then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  I taped down the panel on all sides before I started adding my watercolors--this helps minimize warping of the paper as long as you do not remove the tape before the panel is dry! 

For watercoloring, I used water-reactive ink pads in my stash and smooshed them onto my glass mat, spritzed them lightly with water, and then painted with them like I would regular paint.

I worked in rainbow-ish order adding them to the card, making sure I kept them wet so they would naturally swirl and blend with each other.  After I was done and the panel was dry (you can use a heat gun to speed it up if you are in a hurry) I removed the tape and die cut the "XOXO" out of the panel.  I mounted the panel onto a white card base, then inlayed the XOXO back into the die cut openings.  This particular die cuts a shadow at the same time, so I removed that piece, and it allowed for the white card base to show through as an outline.

If you want to see the whole process, I have an IGTV video of all of it all over on my Instagram!  I hope you enjoy it!

That wraps up my post for today, I will be back here soon with another dose of red rubber inspiration!  Be sure to follow along with me over on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with all my caffeinated adventures!  Till next time, bye!
