Hello everyone! I’m back again with AAA Cards Game #10 Watercolor techniques and Virginia’s View Challenge #5.
Take a look at my card:
I used Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart Stencil and Distress Inks Pack 1 to create my beautiful heart on watercolor paper.
I used Simon Says Stamp Big You die to cut out 4 “you” dies out of basic black cardstock and stacked them together to add dimension.
I choose to use black cardstock so that the “you” would pop against the bright watercolor heart. I used clear foam tape to adhere the “you’ to my card. I love this tape because you will never see the tape behind your project. Thank you Jennifer McGuire for that one.
I love how it turned out. I went to my brother and asked him to tell me what the card said and he nailed it on the first try.
So, I’m confident you will see that my card says I Love You!
Let me know what you think. I would love to get feedback.
Thanks for stopping by!!

I love this background! The stencil and the colours work so well together and who wouldn’t be able to work out the I love you message of this card!
Oops forgot to say thanks for playing at AAA Cards.
Thanks for having me Jane!!
Hey Jane, thank you for your kind words. LOL, I just wanted to make sure everyone could see that, LOL. At first I thought the you covered up the heart but it just adds to it.
How cool is that heart shape, loving the watercolor colors! So glad you played along at AAA Cards
Thank you Linda for your kind words! I learned that technique in my watercolor class a couple of months ago. It was cool to try.
Well done! This is fabulous with the pastel and stark black together~ Thanks for joining in with AAA.
Hey Vicki!! Thank you for leaving such a great comment. The funny thing is I created the watercolor panel a couple of days ago and wasn’t sure what to do with it and then it hit me. I’m glad you like it.
Just beautiful. So unique.
Hello Julia! Thank you for your kind words. Your card is cute too. I ordered that stamp set but returned it because I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I wish I saw your card before sending it back.
What a great technique! It’s interesting, it’s CAS and it’s great! Cool heart, glad your brother saw the sentiment right off the bat. Thanks for playing with us sweetie. Good luck, Cheers, Victoria Lavender, AAA Cards
Hey Victoria! Thank you for your kind words. I love watercoloring so I’m glad this was the theme of this challenge.
Oh my goodness, that mosaic heart is so breathtaking and I just adore the way it morphs through the colors of the rainbow!! Thanks for mentioning about diecutting your word four times because I was wondering if you cut it out of foam or something to get it so thick!! I want to check out this clear mounting tape you spoke of – what brand is it and where can I get some to try? Just know that you are a creator of beauty that shares love and joy with all!! Thanks!!
Hey Taunya! Thanks again for your encouraging words. Yes, its easier to work with the die cuts when they are thicker then the original cut. I can’t take the credit for that I say Laura Bassen do that. The clear foam adhesive is from Tombow. Its called Clear Power Adhesive Tabs. I love them. They are small squares that I cut smaller when I’m using on my die cuts. I bought mines from Amazon. Here is the link:
They are inexpensive and great to have.
Kymona – thanks for the link for the power adhesive tabs – I am definitely going to go order some of them!! Thank goodness fro Prime shipping – thew will be super soon!!
Taunya, your more then welcome. Yes, I have prime too. Its the best. I love getting my packages in two days. Let me know what you think when you use them.
