Hello, crafty friends. I’m thrilled about the new Unity Stamp Company sentiment kit for July 2022 – So Kind, So Caring, So You. I am feeling the vintage, grungy and floral vibe. Karin watercolor markers are the perfect way to add color to this fabulous floral stamp. I’ll share my process for coloring with Karin Brushmarker Pro pens and how to use this one stamp set to create 4 different cards. Even if you don’t have Karin Watercolor Markers, you can adapt this technique to any watercolor medium.

Blue Flowers Sympathy Card
Blue flowers are so very lovely and very soothing for a sympathy card. I love this sentiment – “Thinking of you during this difficult time.” Just a simple little saying to say so very much.
Karin Watercolor Pens: Artic Blue, Cyan, Sulpher Yellow & Lime Green
Special little detail: Add a little bow and a few clear dew drops to give the card a bit of movement and texture.
Purple Flowers General Wishes Card
I’m trying to incorporate purple into my coloring repertoire. These turned out so lovely and they really pop against the contrast of the green background.
Karin Watercolor Pens – Pale Violet, Violet Blue, Lime Green & Olive Green
Special little detail: Pop up the frame. It adds subtle interest to the card with a little lift of dimension.
Peachy Red Flowers Supportive Card
Peachy florals are really my favorite and a go-to color combo. I love how they look against the green background as well. So different from the purple ones.
Karin Watercolor Pens – Soft Peach, Rose Pink, Orange Red, Sulpher Yellow & Olive Green
Special little detail: add some shine. I love the hot foil background and sequins. If you don’t have a hot foil machine try heat embossing a background stamp instead.
Purple-Blue Flowers Thank You Card
Well, hello two-tone flowers! How pretty is the combination of blue and purple? Do you love it too?
Karin Watercolor Pens – Pale Violet, Artic Blue, Lime Green & Olive Green
Special little detail: Add a different kind of foil shine. If you don’t have a foiling machine or laminator, the adhesive transfers are an easy way to achieve this effect with your die-cutting machine.
Bonus tip: adding the velum behind the sentiment makes it easier to read against the busy floral background.
