DIY Handmade Watercolor Card with Die-Namites Sunny Flower Duo


Hi, and welcome to Die-Namites blog event that features dies from Die-Namites teamed up with Stick It adhesive!  I'm Ken Oliver and I was so happy when my friends over at Die-Namites asked me to join in their blog event this week! 


 I love using diecuts, I love using Stick It, and I got to combine diecuts and Stick It with Color Burst to bring you a clean and simple card with a dramatic watercolor background.


 


 The die I'm working with today is  Sunny Flower Duo DN-1095 ; it's perfect to use with Stick It adhesive!

If you haven't heard of Stick It before, you are going to love this stuff!  It's an adhesive that is specially developed for die cutting!  It's the most amazing adhesive for die cutting.  If you'd like to see how it works, here's a video from January's CHA Show in California, Stick It was one of three finalists in the CHA Hot Product Nominations!


To get started, I cut a piece of watercolor paper 5"x5" then used Color Burst to create a dramatic watercolor background.  It's easy to do...just a little spritz of water and a sprinkle of Color Burst gives you a great effect.


I applied Stick It to the back of white cardstock and cut out Sunny Flower Duo, and created a 6"x6" card base and a coordinating layer from cardstock.


Next, using a Click It Ink Pad,  I stamped a "Thinking of You" sentiment onto a tiny 3/4" banner that I cut from white cardstock...


and layered everything in place on the card. 


 To finish the card, I randomly affixed assorted sequins to the card front with liquid adhesive.  


 The great thing about this card, it's high on style and simple enough that DIY card makers and newbie card makers can get the watercolor look without a lot of muss or fuss. 

Thank you for letting me join in today on the Die-Namites blog!  I can't wait to see how everyone else is using Stick It with dies from Die-Namites!

  2. I love these dies and also the Color Bursts. I have not tried the adhesive yet though, but looks to be an awesome way to fasten the dies to a card panel. This is a beauty of a card and I love the colors you chose for it. I have used both the Color Burst and this brand of dies and they are both awesome products.
