Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs.Today I am showcasing the Watercolor Pencils. This is my favorite new item in the Occasions catalog! I was so excited when I saw them featured on page 24 and couldn’t wait to get my hands on these! I shared previously a couple of projects I made using these. You can see those projects HERE or HERE . For this sweet Valentine card I used the watercolor pencils with the blender pen to color a heart cut from a piece of Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. You can get this paper for Free with a qualifying order during Sale-A-Bration (Jan. 4 – March 31).
My card base is 4 1/4 x 8 1/4 scored at 5 1/2. The Designer Series Paper is from the Sending Love Paper Stack in the Occasions catalog. It is cut at 4 x 2 1/2. I cut another piece at 2 1/4 x 6 to line the back of the envelope.
The inside panel is a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 red cardstock. I used the heart framelits (retired) to cut the 4 different sized hearts but you could do the same thing with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits (I wish I had those!!!). I used the Sealed with Love Stamp Set to stamp the sentiments in real red ink. I popped the watercolored layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals and tucked the smaller heart behind. I added some Pearl Basic Jewels to the flowers and a white organza bow on top of the heart. This Valentine is ready to send!
In case you missed the video showcasing all the wonderful ways you can use these watercolor pencils you can watch it here.
These watercolor pencils have been so popular that they are currently out of stock! Oh no! Stampin’ Up! is expecting to get a large shipment in mid February. I love the way these pencils are Stampin’ Up! colors so they coordinate with our other products!
Have a wonderful day!
