I am super excited about this beautiful card!!! I tried out the new Stampin' UP! Ombre Ink Pads as a way to apply color to the background of this card and I love it!! It is the easiest way to make a watercolor wash background!
Watch the VIDEO TUTORIAL below in this post for all the details about how to stamp with the Ombre Pads and how to make this easy watercolor wash background!
The background is created on watercolor paper from Stampin' UP! and then the die cut Detailed Floral Thinlit piece is glued on top. You will learn all the steps to create this card and some bonus tips in my video today!

To dress up the love die cut, I used Clear Wink of Stella over it, and it glimmers so nicely!!
All die cuts were added using Multipurpose glue – see the video above for tips!

What gorgeous cards, Patty! Must admit that the Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay card is my fave, but all of them are stunning. That Detailed Floral Thinlit die is a real beauty. Adding it to my wish list.

Beautiful cards Patty! I was wondering, when you use the New Big Shot Platform with these dies, do you also use the Precision Base plate?
Thanks so much
