Spring Blossoms- Spring Will Follow
I hope all of you are having a great week so far!
Jaydee's PP383 challenge at The Paper Players is “Spring has Sprung” so I decided to create a floral card using Spring Blossoms Clear Stamp Set from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps
I love the tulip and daffodil in Spring Blossoms as well as the beautiful fonts in the sentiments, don't you?
Also, just a reminder about Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps new March release as well as a new Stamp of the Month Stamp Set- Texture Tiles I.
Texture Tiles I is free with any $75 order (before shipping and after any other discounts) plus you will receive free shipping and handling (in the US).
In addition to The Paper Players PP386 “Spring has Sprung” Challenge along with the As You Like It “Single or Multiple Layers and Why” Challenge ( I love multiple layers and find it difficult to create with just a single layer- for me, the more layers the better :-)) and the Word Art Wednesday #324-#325 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- terrific inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Stamp the tulip image from Spring Blossoms Clear Stamp Set with archival black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor with water-based markers and when dry, fussy-cut the image.
2). Die cut a piece of white cardstock with a stitched rectangle die and another piece of white cardstock with a pierced tag die. Using a stencil brush along with a flourish stencil, apply tumbled glass distress ink.
3). De-static the lower corner of the rectangle panel, stamp the sentiment from Spring Blossoms with archival black ink onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool . Once the embossing has cooled, mount onto a piece of black cardstock, trim and mount onto the white card base.
4). Mount the tie cut tag onto black cardstock, trim close to the die cut, add the green triple ribbon satin bow to the die cut tag (wrapping the ends behind the tag) and add part of white paper before mounting the tag onto the card front with dimensional foam.
5). Mount the fussy-cut tulip onto the card front with dimensional foam, tucking the stem under the ribbon.
6). Use a clear glitter pen to apply shimmer to the petals and a few rhinestones to the card front.
