Gathering Your Supplies:

Before we dive into the fun stuff, let's make sure we have everything we need. Besides the obvious—the Pajama Crafter Stamps' Flippin' Best Stamp Set and Tombow Dual Brush Markers—you'll also want some Bristol Cardstock, a water brush or fine paintbrush. Trust me, having quality materials makes all the difference in your final masterpiece.

Preparing Your Workspace:

Now, let's talk about setting the stage for creativity. I don't know about you, but I always find it easier to get into the crafting groove when my workspace is clean and organized. Plus, it helps minimize any potential messes, especially when we're dealing with watercolors. So take a few moments to tidy up your crafting area and create a comfortable space where you can let your creativity flow.

Stamp Placement and Design Planning:

Choosing which stamps to use and how to arrange them on your card is where the fun really begins. Personally, I like to play around with different arrangements until I find one that speaks to me. Maybe it's a playful scene with critters and balloons (like today's card), or perhaps it's a more elegant design with floral elements. Don't be afraid to experiment and let your imagination run wild!

Adding Details and Embellishments:

Once you've finished watercoloring your main design, it's time to add those extra special touches that really make your card pop. Like adding a sky background to a masked off large circle to set the scene of your card designs. Maybe you want to add some hand-drawn doodles or stamp a sentiment to convey your birthday wishes. And don't forget about embellishments like a few Boyfriend Blue Rhinestones—they're the perfect finishing touch!

With your card design complete, it's time to put the finishing touches on your masterpiece. Trim any excess paper, mat your design if you'd like, and then adhere everything together to create your final card. And don't forget about presentation—whether you're mailing your card or hand-delivering it, a beautifully packaged card is sure to bring a smile to the recipient's face.
