Watercolor Scraps Card Set

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card set featuring a couple Waffle Flower stamp sets using all the watercolor scraps I’ve collected over the last few months. I wanted something simple and easy to use the scraps up.

I stamped out the images using Waffle Flower’s Be Her and Be Him stamp sets and quickly colored them up using alcohol markers. These two sets have a bunch of different accessories but since I was going for simple and easy, I just focused on the critters. Also, since I wanted to mass produce, I used the same sentiment for all 7 cars using Waffle Flower’s Across the Miles.  

I wanted to use a bunch of dies to create shapes for the cards so first, I needed to create a bunch of background pieces. I pulled out some Canson XL watercolor paper and Stathmore Black Mixed Media paper along with Altenew’s Metallic Watercolors. I just played with the watercolors on all my scraps.

CARD 1 & 2:
Using the Altenew’s Metallic Watercolors on Stathmore Black Mixed Media, I simply used a dense brush and created lines in rainbow order. Using Honey Bee’s Deckle Rectangles, I cut out two different sized rectangles. I used them in two different directions adding the Unicorn from Be Her and the Bunny from Be Him.

For my third card, I just went with something super simple from one of the scraps I didn’t particularly love. I used the three green shades from the Altenew’s Metallic Watercolors on Canson XL watercolor paper but using a bigger brush, two of the green colors didn’t seem all that different from each other. I used the retired Simon Says Stamp Scribble Heart & Arrow to die cut three hearts, and arranged them diagonally. I added the cat from Be Her at the bottom left and the sentiment in the top right.

This card was as simple as Card 1 & 2, I used the purple and blue from the Altenew’s Metallic Watercolors on Canson XL watercolor paper to paint loosely. Once I was done, I splatter a bit of gold paint all over. Using Honey Bee’s Deckle Rectangles, I used one of the larger sizes. I trimmed down my white card panel, and matted it on glitter blue cardstock.

CARD 5 & 6:
These two cards came from different pieces of cardstock but with the same process. I loosely colored the watercolor panel in rainbow colors.

I used the more vibrant one and trimmed it down a bit, popped it on a piece of white cardstock. Using one of the copic markers I colored the fox from Be Her, I colored the edges of another card panel so everything would be cohesive.

The second piece was a bit lighter, so I chose to cut a different sized circles using Hero Arts – Infinity Circles. I placed the Be Her owl on the left corner and added the circles from biggest to smallest from top to bottom.

For my last card, I colored a piece of Canson XL watercolor paper with different sized stripes in rainbow order. I trimmed down this piece in different sizes and arranged them on the card and alternated with strips of black cardstock.

To finish off the cards, I added embellishments to some or I matted them on a coordinating cardstock.

I hope you get inspired to create and use up your scraps for some quick cards. Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
