Watercolor Words Anniversary Card

September 13, 2017

Today is my 20th wedding anniversary and the Watercolor Words stamp set came to my rescue in creating my sweetie’s card.

We went on a Rte 66 road adventure in mid-August and our favorite stop (which wasn’t on Rte 66) was at Rainbow Bridge while on a Lake Powell boat excursion.  I wanted to incorporate a photo of us from Rainbow Bridge into a card and this is what I came up with:

B&R Anniv card

Rainbow Bridge anniversary card featuring Watercolor Words stamp set


The basic card is 5″ x 5″ with the embellished layer being 4-3/4″ x 4-3/4″.  I made the heart by ‘tracing’ the inside of a heart from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits with a water soaked paint brush.


Be sure the water soaks all the way through the card stock (flip card stock over to see that it’s as wet as the front side).


Then gently tear away the center of the heart:


After the layer has dried (you can speed this up by using the gentle setting on your Heat Tool)  sponge around the torn edges of the heart and then randomly elsewhere on the layer.  Don’t cover the entire layer.

Also using the Watercolor Words stamp set, add a heat embossed greeting to the inside of the card, matching the Copper Stampin’ Emboss Powder greeting on the card front.  Be sure to rub the area where you’ll be stamping with your Embossing Buddy before stamping.

I just love this quite simple card that features the Watercolor Words stamp set.  There are so many way you can use the “wet and tear” technique and I can’t wait to use it again soon.
