Perched in a Tree – 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge

For the Day 22 colour combo of the 30 Day Christmas Cardmaking Challenge, I pulled out one of my favourites and therefore well-used stamp sets – Perched in a Tree. This little bird has provided me hours of creativity and for this card I chose to watercolour it to add some subtle colour.

Watercolouring is such a relaxing technique and what I love about it is that every image will turn out different making each creation unique. I coloured the bird in a combination of Fresh Freesia and Lost Lagoon.

You can get all the tips on how to colour this bird and assemble the card in my YouTube tutorial linked below.

Easy Watercolouring Technique – Inked & Tiled Stamp Set

This card was inspired by a card I saw one of the Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team members create. I loved the colours and the watercolour effect on it.

This is a really fun and easy technique to replicate and creates beautiful results. Using Stampin’ Write Markers I coloured directly on the stamp. As these markers are water based, the stamp will easily clean off after this process. Huff on the stamp with your breath to activate the ink and stamp the image on the label.

Spritzing the label lightly with water before and after stamping gives the image the watercoloured look.

The striped Pebbled Path Designer Series Paper provides a neutral background to bring out the beauty of these flowers. Did you know we have standard packs of 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Papers in each of our colour ranges?

161646 2023-2025 In-Color Designer Series Paper, Stampin' Up!

Each pack has the same 4 patterns. So a total of 50 colours to coordinate with any project. These are particularly great for when you want something to tone in and not too busy yet with a bit of a pattern.

If you would like to create this card you can contact me for details and I’d be happy to help you.
