Flowering Foils Card

Hello and welcome to my blog. This is such an important time to keep doing what we love. Crafting is a fantastic activity for mental wellbeing and card making allows us to feel better as well as brightening someone else’s day – win, win!

Today I want to share with you the second card that we should have made at my workshop last week. This card features the delightful Flowering Foils Speciality DSP from the 2nd Sale-A-Bration release (available until 31st March 2020). Find out more here.

If you would like to see a video of me creating the card, scroll to the end of the blog to view my You Tube video!

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Petal Pink cardstock. I then cut a slightly smaller layer of the Flowering Foils Speciality DSP. Using a Sponge Brayer and Petal Pink ink, I created an ombre effect from top to bottom and adhered the layer to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.

Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, I cut a large label from Petal Pink cardstock and a smaller label from Silver Glimmer Paper. I layered these together and adhered them to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a length of the Whisper White Crinkled Seam Biniding Ribbon and coloured it with the Petal Pink Dark Stampin’ Blends. This was adhered to the card front using Tear and Tape.

For the sentiment piece, I decided to colour a piece of Whisper White cardstock using a Sponge Brayer and Petal Pink ink. I did this because Whisper White seemed too stark and I wanted something which tied in with the brayered background. The sentiment itself is from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This piece was adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch was to place a few of the Petal Pink Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.

Happy Easter, Happy Spring

There are many reasons to celebrate at this time of year – Mother’s Day, Easter, Spring, new life, changes in the weather and the changing of the clocks to name but a few.

Today I wanted to share with you a card which uses a sentiment that perfectly captures this feeling…

If you would prefer to watch me create the card, simply scroll to the end of this blog post where you can watch my video tutorial.

Let’s make it…

I chose I beautiful colour combination that just screams Spring – Whisper White Daffodil Delight and Old Olive – and a Stamp Set that is perfect for this time of year – Timeless Tulips.

The card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. I have followed this with a layer of the Daffodil Delight Gingham DSP which you can find in the Brights 6×6″ DSP. Next I have used a piece of Whisper White cardstock which is die cut using the upcoming Ornate Layers dies (these will be available from 1st April, or sooner if you join my team – you can find out more about that here).

I have used the Ornate Layers dies again to cut a smaller piece of Old Olive Gingham DSP which you can find in the Regals 6×6″ DSP.

The tulips are stamped in Daffodil Delight ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Tulip Builder punch. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive ink onto Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut (I wanted the longer leaf than the one which is cut out with the punch but you could make life easier by using that one). These elements are adhered to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The sentiment is stamped in Old Olive ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I used a little trick to make it just the right size – let me know if you’d like me to make a video showing how to do this!

I think this is a gorgeous, bright and cheerful Spring card, I hope you agree. If you would like to make your own you can purchase any of the items used (or any other Stampin’ Up! products) by clicking here or on the individual links below to head straight to my online shop. Note: Ornate Layers not available at time of writing unless you join my team.

Happy crafting, h x
