It’s time for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop! If you are starting off the Hop from my blog today…Welcome! Our theme for the Hop this month is “Celebrate Spring”, and we can interpret this any way that we’d like. I know you will see a lot of inspiration from my team members in the Hop today so be sure to use the links at the bottom of this blog post to check them out! Let’s go!
My card today celebrates Spring with some gorgeous flowers from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set and Dainty Delight Dies! I also used some of the pretty Regency Park 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to compliment this spring-themed card. Did you know that wildflowers are among some of the first flowers to bloom in the Spring? It’s true!
I started off by adhering a piece of Regency Park Designer Series Paper in a Petal Pink basket weave print to my card base in Sweet Sorbet.
Two of the wildflower images from the Dainty Delight Stamp Set were stamped onto a white panel using Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I varied the height of the flowers across the panel. I then used Stampin’ Blends in Petal Pink, Sweet Sorbet and Granny Apple Green to color in the images. The panel was adhered to a mat in Sweet Sorbet and this unit was adhered to the card front. The panel was centered left to right horizontally but was dropped towards the bottom vertically.
I used the large and small label dies from the Something Fancy Dies set to cut out labels in Sweet Sorbet and Basic white, respectively. I stamped the sentiment onto the white label and adhered this label to its Sweet Sorbet mat. While I was die cutting, I cut two of the Queen Anne’s Lace flowers from scraps of Petal Pink cardstock and used a small scrap of the designer series paper to cut out a large, medium and small flower. The Queen Anne’s Lace flowers were adhered to the stamped panel and I trimmed the stems down so that they were flush with the bottom of the white, stamped panel. The designer series paper flowers were adhered to either side of the sentiment label.
I adhered a length of burlap ribbon across the top of the stamped panel then adhered the sentiment label over top of the ribbon strip. The sentiment label overlaps the top of the stamped panel.
On the inside panel I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace image and colored the image in using Stampin’ Blends. The panel was adhered to a mat in Petal Pink then this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.
The same Queen Anne’s Lace flower image was stamped onto the envelope front and colored in. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap.
To finish off the card I added Iridescent Pastel Gems to each of the small flowers decorating the sentiment label and added a few additional gems among the stamped flowers on the card front.
