Designed by: Grace Tolman
Time: Approximately 45 minutes
Size: 5 ½" x 4 ¼”
Notes: Using inks as a watercolor medium can be an easy way to maximize your supplies. Glue Dots adhesives also makes this project easy and mess free.
Here’s what you need:
- Glue Dots® Permanent Glue Tape
- Glue Dots® Micro dots
- My Favorite Things Black Licorice Hybrid
- County Fair Ink Cube Pack
- Lawn Fawn Stamp Pad Versamark, Tsukineko
- Embossing powder- Snow, Recollections
- Lawn Fawn How you Bean? Conversation Hearts Add-On
- Watercolor brush
- Watercolor paper- Canson
- Lawn Fawn let’s polka in the meadow paper pad
- Stamp mask paper
Here’s what you do:
Create the card base using white cardstock. Cut and fold the paper into an A2 card base.
Stamp the cluster of hearts, twice, onto the mask paper. Cut out the images.
Cut out a watercolor piece the same size as your card base.
Stamp the same cluster of hearts image onto an edge of the water color paper piece. Adhere one of the mask papers over the stamped image. Stamp the image next to the masked piece, overlapping the edges slightly. Adhere the other mask paper over the just stamped image and mask again, repeating the process of overlapping the edges when needed. Move the mask papers whenever you need to re-stamp the heart cluster close to existing stamped area. Fill the whole water color piece with cluster of hearts images.
Rub some Lemonade ink onto a color palette or a mixed media mat. Using your watercolor brush and some water, transfer the ink color to the brush and color in the stamped hearts. Repeat the process with the Grape Soda and Bubble Gum inks until the whole piece is colored in.
Cut the water color panel into two vertical pieces.
Cut out two ¼” strips from black and white diagonal pattern papers. Adhere these strips onto the sides of the heart cluster panels with Glue Dots Permanent Glue Tape.
Adhere the whole thing onto the card front using more Permanent Glue Tape adhesive.
Stamp the solid heart image onto a white cardstock piece using the same three inks. Cut out the images.
Stamp and heat emboss with white powder the sentiment onto kraft cardstock. Trim to about a ½” strip and cut out the right side into a fish tail banner.
Adhere the cut out hearts and the sentiment onto the bottom portion of the card using Glue Dots Micro Dots.
Wrap some twine on the top of the card base. Tie the ends into a bow and trim off excess string.
Repeat the process to create the second identical card.

I’m a mom to a 10 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Therefore my life is usually filled with learning, new discovery, bribery and driving to and from all of our activities. I have a loving and very supportive husband of 11 years. When the kids have gone to bed at night, my time is spent crafting while catching up on my favorite shows and movies. I also enjoy reading, window shopping, knitting and perusing blogs for inspirations. Three years ago we moved to Colorado from California and we are enjoying our new environment. I feel very inspired with my new home, my new scrapbook space and the mountain views. Although I’ve been doing some type of scrapbooking since grade school, I only started to scrapbook seriously after my son was born. When he was born I knew I would be staying at home with him but coming from a fast paced sales job I was afraid I would ran out of things to do during the day. Little did I know that with newborns you won’t have any time to do anything else. Anyways, after going through a basic scrapbooking class I was hooked and haven’t stopped scrapping since.
