Lots of cards!

I have been on a watercolor kick lately and made a bunch of beautiful cards, plus a few more with some new Stampin Up! products that I bought.  I used a variety of embossing folders on watercolor paper, and a mixture of Tim Holtz Distress Inks, water, Perfect Pearls powder and good, old fashioned Crayola water color paints.  
I didn't take close ups of all of the watercolor ones, but they were all basically done the same way.  I roughly painted them first, then sprayed the whole thing with the pearlized water, and then used my heat tool to speed up the drying process.

This is what they all looked like after they were dry.

 photo 20160725_120317_zps8hvxk1wy_edit_1469476239787_zps58kuxzou.jpg

I matted them on a simple black mat and kraft base, and added a banner and sentiment.

This one with the clouds, I added some Glossy Accent raindrops.

This one was my first attempt at the Galaxy style background.  I stamped the foliage first, then I painted the colors the same way.  I spritzed with clear water, no pearl powder this time, and used the heat tool to dry.  After it was dry, I splattered some of the pearlized water on for some stars.  The stamping was done first, and I didn't think it stood out enough, so I went back over it with clear embossing powder, and blended the edges with Dusty Concord and Black Soot.

 These ones were made with the new SU Flourishing Phrases set.  I used the Distress inks directly on the base paper with the blending tool, and then used the large flourish stamp with plain water to get the watermark effect.

This background is just ink to paper with the blending tool, with the flourish die cut in black.

This last set, I inked the large flourish stamp with many colors of Distress Ink and sprayed it with water before stamping.  The lacy strip across the card was also colored with coordinating Distress Ink.

Disney Album 5" x 7 1/2" **FOR SALE**

I love this clean and simple design.  I like things chock full of ink, lace, trims and buttons, but this was refreshing and super easy to do, not cluttered with a bunch of stuff.  Plus the papers are super busy, so I thought that they needed to take center stage.

This album is for sale in my Etsy Shop!

I used papers by Queen & Company, the Magic line, as well as yellow, red white and black card stock.  There are only a few embellishments, since I wanted the papers to be the focus.  The black base pages are 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" (there are 6) and all the layers are 4" x 6".  Each page has a side pocket with an insert.  I created this album in mind for smaller sized photos, like wallet, 3x4, 3x4, ect.  You can most certainly use 4x6 photos, though most of the pretty papers will be completely covered up.
I tried something new and used Tyvek for the cover. It is a sturdy cloth that can't be easily torn and is very thin and flexible.  The USPS makes mailers out of them, and it is also a construction material for buildings.  It was white to begin with, but I used my black Staz-On ink to color it.  It is slightly on the grey side and bot completely black, however it completes this project nicely.
The cover has a shaker embellishment from EK Success, a Spellbinders Die and some of the papers from the collection.  The little date ticket is from the papers as well.  There are a few of them scattered throughout.  I left the spine and back cover free of decorations.

The first page is a simple pocket, with two inserts.  For a lot of the inserts I used a ledger stamp for journaling.  They can of course be used for photos as well.

This shows the insert for the side pocket in each page.  They are all the same, with this heart paper on one side and the ledger stamp on the other.  I alternated which side faces up in each pocket.

The left page has a metal embellishment from Creative Imaginations, there are 3 in this album.

The left page has a flair button, also from Queen & Company.  I mounted it on a piece of black paper, punched with a scallop shape. It is adhered only on the left, allowing for a photo to slide underneath.  The pocket flap has two tags that come out, for journaling or pictures.

The right page has a flap closure on the bottom with magnet that flips to the bottom.  Inside is a card stock water fall feature. I left the waterfall free of patterned paper, and they are sized to fit 4x4 pictures.

The last page has a double pocket.  There are two tags in each pocket. I may just make it one of each because they fit pretty tightly and would be even tighter with photos.
