Watercolor Wishes Is A Wonderful Value!
Wow! Look at all of those pretty cards! Whether your a brand new stamper or a seasoned stamper, I know you're going to love this awesome card kit! You get all of the stamps, inks, supplies, embellishments & envelopes to create 20 gorgeous cards! You'll have everything you need—just add some Glue Dots! It's only $35! And, it all comes in a pretty storage box, so it's great for gift-giving!
All-Occasion Stamp Set Included—The kit comes with this versatile, all-occasion, 12-stamp Watercolor Wishes sentiment set, along with an acrylic block, that you'll be able to use over and over! What a fantastic value!

Let's take a look at each card! I assembled them according to the full-color instructions that are included in the kit. Stampin' Up! makes it so easy for you! It took me about 1-1/2 hours at a non-rushed pace to put together all 20 cards!
Full-Size Cards—The 20-card kit includes 10 full-size cards with envelopes. All of the card bases are pre-printed with either a solid color or a beautiful watercolor background.
Sentiment Layers—Each card comes with a colorful die-cut label for stamping the sentiment with the Night of Navy or Watermelon Wonder ink spots that are included. The sentiments are popped up with Dimensionals, also included.
Wooden Accents—Several of the cards feature wooden hearts, heart outlines or butterflies! So cute!
Washi Tape—You'll also have a roll of washi tape for adding fun, striped accents to the cards and envelopes! You know I love those stripes!
Banner Stickers—You'll receive a whole sheet of sticker banner embellishments like the banner accent on this card.
Die-Cut Floral Accents—There is also a full sheet of colorful, die-cut flowers and leaves to use as accents! Pretty!
Shiny Sequins—You'll want to finish off your cards with the included sequins in Pearl and Pool Party colors.
Have Your Glue Dots Handy—The only thing you need to add to this kit is adhesive for some of the embellishments. I found that Glue Dots work the best for all of the accents. It takes A LOT of Glue Dots, but they work well on the die-cuts, wooden accents and sequins. Plus, they are faster than SNAIL and a lot less messy than Multipurpose Glue!
3-1/2" x 5" Cards—The kit includes 6 cards in this medium size...and you'll have white envelopes to match!
Large Word Bubbles—Some of the medium size cards have cute word bubble layers for the stamped sentiments.
Ooops! Unfortunately, sometimes you stamp the sentiment upside-down on the word bubble, so you have to cut off the arrow, unless you want it pointing upward! LOL!
Choose Your Sentiments—I assembled my cards like the photos in the instructions, but you can mix & match the sentiments to suit your occasions! Keep a kit on hand for those quick cards you need at the last-minute!
Leftovers—After I was done assembling, I gathered up all of the goodies that I could use on additional projects! Of course you have the stamps, inks and acrylic block, but there were also lots of wooden accents, washi tape and sequins left. I realized after I took the photo that I forgot to add the the rest of the die-cut flowers...just a few of those and some leaves left.
Dress Them Up—Since I had extras, I decided to go back and dress up some of my cards. The remaining cards are shown assembled like the instructions, along with a closeup of my extra accents! Here, I added a butterfly and some sequins.
More Is Better—This one is simple & pretty on it's own, but I LOVE it with some added accents! That strip of washi tape and wooden heart makes it really pop!
This one just needed a few sequins!
Gotta have some sparkle on this one, too, along with a wooden heart!
You have to have a wooden heart peeking out when the sentiment says "You are so loved!"
I love this one all decked out with embellishments!
4" x 4" Cards—The kit includes 4 square note cards with envelopes. I added some washi tape...can't get enough of the stripes!
Those sequins sure go a long way! You can add them to every card!
One final sweet note!
Whew! That's a whole lot of lovely cards! A Mega Card Kit!
