Let's look at a pretty watercoloring technique using the beautiful Ornate Style stamp set.
This means of watercoloring always produces such a beautiful effect. Talk about adding a wow factor to your handmade cards!
Today's video shows the watercoloring process and tomorrow complete the project with a handmade fun-fold card.
Let's take a look...

Tune in tomorrow for the finished project using this watercolored piece featuring the Stampin' Up! Ornate Style stamp set from the Ornate Garden Suite.
Here’s a special project for the Easter season (and, this stay-at-home season) made with products from the Ornate Garden Suite Collection (English)  and some additional supplies from the current Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I call this home decór piece, a Banner of Hope.
The Ornate Garden Suite is an early release suite from the Stampin' Up! Annual 2020-2021 that will debut in June of 2020.
Here are some details and the dimensions for cutting...
Banner pieces (Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper ) are cut 4” x 6”. Measure to 2” across the bottom then 2” up on both sides. Connect each side 2” mark with the bottom 2” mark and draw a line connecting each. You will cut on both of these lines to make the bottom point of the banner.
Choose two different patterns of designer paper. Cut 3 strips of one pattern at 1” x 4”. Cut 3 strips of the other pattern at 1-1/2” x 4”.
You will need 3 pieces of 3-1/4” x 4-1/4” in Whisper White if you are going to cut the border edges. Otherwise, I would cut these at 2-3/4” x 4”.
Here's the video tutorial for today's card...let's take a look!
Card base is Whisper White Cardstock  cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". You will also need abut 3" x 4" for punching and 3" x 5" for die cutting with the Ornate Layers Dies. ( These dies are on backorder so you can cut your Whisper White to 1-1/4" x 4" instead)
The Ornate Garden Suite Collection (English)  can still be ordered. The Ornate Layers dies are currently backordered. BUT, you can still order the suite and receive everything in the suite that is available. The product(s) that are on backorder will be shipped to you as soon as available!

Here are two cards that we made my Facebook Live yesterday.
Whatever you decide, you cannot go wrong with any of these choices! But, do yourself a favor and get the whole suite!
And, if you think this suite isn't for you, you would be pleasantly surprised! But, as always, if you place any order through me in my Online Store or by calling me at 409-719-2853, or emailing me at email@example.com.
Creating with the new Ornate Garden Suite has really lifted my spirits during this time by making cheery cards to put in the mail and I challenge you to make cards to send now!
I will be using these cards and a similar design for a swap with my stamp club in SE Texas. Next month is a service project and we will be sharing these cards with an assisted living facility. These are also so appropriate to send now during this time of social distancing.

Here's a mini gift bag project that you can make now with that stack of designer paper that you probably have stashed with your crafting supplies!
This bag is little but big enough for some sweet treats, a gift card, a pair of earrings...you get the idea. You can use supplies that you have on hand to embellish or order something fun since Stampin' Up! is still shipping orders!
Let's take a look in the simple how-to in today's video tutorial!

Don't know about you but crafting makes me super happy! Aren't we blessed to have a hobby that can occupy our time and spread joy to others?
The following two projects were created on my Facebook LIVE on Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown. The posting here is a bit delayed due to my slow internet in these times. I've been waiting quite a spell for the uploads to take place so that the video to be shared here. By all means, no complaints just a little explanation for why the posting here at Ink and Inspirations aren't as timely as usual.;)
Here is the card that you are going to love to re-create...
Two cards like the one above were put in the mail today!
Here's an Easter treat wrap that can be easily mailed in a bubble mailer. :)
