Stamping On Vellum & How to HIDE THE GLUE!

Let's CASE it, Let's MAKE it! Series Ep. 8
Happy Monday! Welcome back to my Monday - Master Your Card Making Skills Series! 
If this is your first time visiting my blog, I'm so happy you are here. I hope you find something to inspire you and take your mind of otherwise not so inspiring events happening in our world today. 
Today's card is a CASE (Copy & Share Everything) out of the 2018 - 2019 Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog. Page 161. 
For today's card, I will show you how to recreate a card even if you don't have the same stamp set. I will also be stamping on vellum and showing you how to hide the glue!
Here is a Step-by-Step Video Tutorial

Question: Do you have the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set?
Let me know in the comments below if you own this retired stamp set. I sure wish I did. But the Beautiful Bouquet did a great job in recreating this card.

Water Colors & Shaving Cream

Watercoloring is so much fun! I love trying out all the different ways to watercolor. 
Whether it be with pencils, liquid, or in a pan, I love them all!
Today I brought out both sets of the Stampin' Up! Watercolor pencils. 
They are sooooo easy to work with. If you can color, you can watercolor with these!
I really love this floral arrangement from the "Ornate Style" set, which might I add is a NEW RELEASE in the upcoming Annual Catalog. When I finished watercoloring it, I noticed that there were going to parts of the inside that would be very very difficult to cut out. So I figured if I colored them in I could create a background that matched and hide the fact I didn't cut out the 'inners'. 
For the background I created, I used a different type of shaving cream technique. It's probably been done before, but I wanted to come up with a way that allowed me more precision when applying the ink. I think it worked out perfectly and looks really cool!
I did create a video for you to watch. I sped up the watercoloring. I'm not a watercolor instructor, so I didn't want to attempt to go on and on about what you should or shouldn't do. So I sped it up and just told you what works for me when I watercolor. 

Here is the VIDEO for you
Question: Had you seen that Shaving Cream on a block Technique before?
Let me know in the comments below if you plan on trying this. I love hearing from you!
