Do you want to know how to create this baby dragon card? Read below:


Steps to Create This Card:

The background:

  • Watercolor your inks onto a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of watercolor paper.
  • TECHNIQUE: To watercolor using your Stampin Up Ink Pads — Using a small paintbrush, add water to the top inside of your stamp pad case to create a small puddle. Then touch the paintbrush over the ink pad and bring it back to the puddle on the case lid. If you want it darker, add more ink to your puddle. This give you control over the intensity of the color. Bring it to your watercolor paper to form the colorful clouds.

  • Stamp sentiment with Gorgeous Grape.
  • Adhere to Coastal Cabana cardbase (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″).

The baby dragon:

  • Print onto white paper, and color with stampin write markers.
  • Fussy-cut out.
  • Adhere in lower right-hand corner with mini-dimensionals for the popped look.

Add embellishments.

  • I used a few retired glitter gems, but any pearls or rhinestones would also look fantastic!

Needed Supplies:

Tavi dragon digital stamp from LeAnn’s World 101

Gorgeous Grape Classic Stampin' Pad


I can’t wait to send this card! It’s going to a “Game of Thrones” fan, but I also know some soon-to-be parents who love the “How to Train your Dragon” movies and would enjoy this creation. Are you a fan of either?
I’m playing along with the following challenges:
