Create with Watercolors
by Penny


Hello Memory Box friends.....Penny here today with a couple of brand spanking new dies. Just playing around with the Stitched Rings die, I decided it looked like portholes from a ship. Thus, the inspiration for the beautiful waves I could see from my berth. Super easy to make and by changing the sentiment, this card would be great for just about any occasion.


I actually die cut the Stitched Rings two times, one being from the A2 card front, but that left just a smidge of flat edges on my outside rings...Well, you know that would drive me crazy, so I cut another one from a little bit larger piece of cardstock and then inlaid it into the card front. Gives it a little something, something.


I die cut the Stitched Rings one more time from watercolor paper and proceeded to paint the waves. I used some new Peerless watercolors and I must say....woohoo to the vibrant colors! 

I also die cut the Paintbrush Create  from watercolor paper and used the same paints.


Bring the card together by inlaying the watercolored circles and adhere the Paintbrush Create to card front. I also added some pretty thread and clear sequins.

I can see making many cards using the new Stitched Rings, and I love the little circles I can add to a creation without using the ring...so versatile!!!


Hope this gets your mojo going. Show us what you are making on our Facebook page and don't forget to play along in our Shaker Card Challenge this month.

Happy Crafting,





I have to say that the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw your card--before I read one word of your post--I thought of portholes. Mission accomplished!!! LOL Great card.

Very pretty. Love the simple lines, but wondering how you got your circles so evenly placed? What's the trick there? Please let me know. The bright color is beautiful. Edna Burgess

Super duper creation - love the watercoloring!

Oh, Penny! You outdo yourself every time! Love the vibrant color .. awesome design. There is nothing you can't do!!
