Memory Box Antilles Floral Corner and the Watercolor dip technique…

Hi! How are you? Last week was kinda crazy.  Our area stamp club meeting on Friday but it was shoebox card party time so I was figuring out what I was going to take. Yes, I have a terrible time deciding! lol

I ended up with two cards and this is one.  Did you by any chance watch the Memory Box video by Dave Brethauer, the Memory Box owner?  This is so much fun!  If you want to try it, watch it HERE!  I guarantee you will have SO MUCH FUN and use up watercolor paper! lol  Thank you for sharing this technique with us Dave!

I ended up with 5 cards from all my dipping!

The die I used is HERE and the sentiment HERE.

Whew…almost forgot to tell you…I used Distress Ink refills, HERE, to paint with for these cards.  Dave used Peerless in the video and they both work great!  I really like the ink straight out of the dropper bottle.  I don’t get so much on me! hehe

I’m linking up my card to some challenges…

CAS Watercolor Card Challenge – Summer

It’s the perfect thing to do on a hot Summer day….inside!

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. if you have a minute, will you email me or comment and tell me what kind of ads you see at the end of my blog posts? It really bothers me that wordpress is posting advertising on my blog and I can’t see what they are showing!  Researching upgrading to a .com but the cost does add up so it has to be worth it.  Costs cut into the stamp and die purchases!  hehe

  1. GORGEOUS cards Pam! They would make a nice gift set or nice to have on hand cards. Still have to watch the video; his colour/water coloured pencil book is great. I’ve never seen any ads on your blog. I get the same pop ups but my viewers have never seen any either. So go ahead and buy some more stamps and dies! 🙂

    1. Oh these were so much fun at our shoebox party. Everyone did a nice job. I ordered some dies
      to do more. Thanks Pam!

  2. Beautiful cards! I love this die cut too-have had my eye on it for a while. I will have to watch the video for sure. Stay cool!!

  3. Hi, Pam”. Beautiful cards. I love the look of watercolor. I do not see any ads, other than what you have in the right side bar.

  4. Can’t wait to go watch the videos the cards/die/technique are awesome. Aren’t stamp clubs fun. We have a SU one that meets twice a month at a cute little coffee house here in town. Lots of fun and we just got together thus afternoon.

  5. I haven’t tried the technique yet but am in love with your cards!! Those ladies in your stamp club are sure lucky!!

    The one ad (space for two – only one on the right is visible) I see are auto generated based on my search history.

  6. Oh that looks like a fun technique!!! And you made eight cards! They are so pretty too! Love that die and the pretty color you used! Makes me want to go dip! haha! I actually don’t see any ads at the bottom of your blog. I scrolled all the way down.

  7. Hi Pam!
    I saw an Adopt a Shelter Pet ad and one for Best Buy. It’s actually the first time I’ve seen ads on your blog.
    Beautiful cards! Missed seeing you all at stamp club! I’ll get back eventually! 🙂

  8. Farfetch Shoes are popping up on your blog tonight! What a beautiful set of cards, dear friend! Your creations always make me want to get crafting!!! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. Hi Pam! I am not seeing any ads on your site and am using Firefox with adblock plus enabled, which is a lifesaver for me because I can’t handle flashing advertisements!!! I really love your cards, the colors are wonderful. I know which video you are talking about, I think I started watching it but didn’t finish it. I don’t have the peerless, but would love to get them. Thanks for sharing!!! You made my day much better! ❤

  10. hi pam….i do not see any ads on your blog. i use firefox and no special blocker (that i’m aware of!).

  11. Advertisements for Expedia are showing up on your blog posts. I know what you mean- they are ANNOYING.

  12. Fun cards and fun video. I watched this a week or two ago and played around with it on a die cut sentiment. Love the technique and how your cards turned out. Gorgeous!
    I have an ad from WhiteSmoke Perfect Writing in a single click!

  13. Beautiful, rich watercolor, Pam! An awesome set of cards! Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour and for sharing the video too!

  14. How beautiful Pam! I checked out the link, and it looks like lots of fun. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers! Have a great day!

  15. Gotta copy this card as I love everything about it. I bought all four of the cards after you inspired me with the large group one in this category. Have made a couple of cards already but love just a little bit of the watercolor like you did. Another Pam inspiration!! Don’t know how to help you with your computer problem.

  16. Gorgeous summer card, Pam! Love the bright colours of your flowers against the pretty blue background. Adding splatters of water gives the background some visual texture. Thanks for including the link to Dave’s video … it was great!! And thanks for sharing your card with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

  17. Oh, those decisions take most of the time! Dave makes it look so easy, doesn’t he? Love all that inkiness! Five gorgeous cards, Pam! I don’t see any ads. I do on some blogs, but not yours.

  18. Gorgeous set of cards, I’ve never heard of this technique but it looks like it’s a lot of fun, I will definitely try it, it looks so easy and the results are amazing.
    Thank you for sharing your cards with us at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, hope you play again next time.
