Thank You|Everyday Script|Spring Botanicals

This is such a bright and cheerful card.  I love these colors together.

Thank You

On a scrap piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock or sticky note stamp the flower image from the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544) stamp set.  You will then cut it out on the outline of the stamp to make a mask.

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock stamp the same image in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) ink.  Using the Summer Days from the Rich Sorbets PanPastels (JM-0082) add color to the flower using the Journey Sofft Tools (JM-0098).  Then add the mask on to each flower when stamping the leaves in Kiwi Slice (IP-0024) ink.  The other leaves, feather and arrow, you will stamp in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041).

Stamp Thank You from the Everyday Script (SS-0543) stamp set in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and cut it out using the coordinating die (DI-0406). [This set comes in a bundle as well].

Put Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) on an acrylic block and using the Blending Brush (TO-0097) add the Sparkle Silk to the feathers, arrows and leaves.

ThankYou2

Cut Deco Strips (AC-0285) and affix in a “V” pattern in the center of the stamped panel.  Loop the Journey Twine (AC-0004) and staple in place using the Journey Days Stapler (TO-0118) with Brush Silver Staples (TO-0120).  

Using Foam Squares (AD-0085) pop up the Thank you sentiment over the looped Journey Twine Black Licorice (AC-0004).  Add some Magical Candy Drops (AC-0263) and Silver Silk (IP-0090).  Pop up this panel onto a Lemon Drop (CS-0018) card base.

ThankYou3

Be Mine

The images from the Storybook Occasions Stamp Set (SS-0538) are so adorable!!  I think they would look really cute on a baby card or baby shower decorations.

This card was fairly easy and really fun to make. It was one of the four projects that were part of the last FSJ Presents/FSJ Live.

Be Mine Bunny

Using the I Heart (EF-0014) embossing folder, emboss a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock and then add some Black Licorice Silk (IP-0041).  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) adhere it to a Fresh Forest (CS-0011) card base.

On a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock stamp the bunny image from the Storybook Occasions (SS-0538) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink.  Then cut it out using the Details Pro Shears (TO-0063).  Color the grass area of the image with watered-down Fresh Forest Liquid Color (IP-0131) using the Small Blending Brush (TO-0097).  Color hearts and postage stamp using Bubble Gum Silk (IP-0092) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097).  Using the Small Blending Brush (TO-0097) add Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to the bunny’s ears and envelope.

Be Mine Bunny2
I am in love with these Heart Sparkle Drops!!!

Using the Journey Squares Dies (DI-0038) cut out a piece of Sweet Berry (CS-0034) and Whip Cream (CS-0040) card stock.  Use a strip of the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) as an accent along with the Deco Strips Black (AC-0285).  Looping a piece of Journey Natural Twine (AC-0005) and adhering it to that panel using  the Journey Days Stapler  (TO-0118) with Brush Silver Staples (TO-0120) [you can also purchase Brush Gold Staples – I will add those to the supply list below] Using Medium Foam Squares (AD-0085) pop up this onto the card front.  Then using the small Foam Squares (AD-0084) pop up the bunny onto that piece.  Stamp the Be Mine sentiment on a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040) in Black Licorice Ink (IP-0041) and pop that up as well.

To finish off the card, add some Journey Glaze (AD-0002) and Sparkle Cuts (AC-0151) to the heart the bunny is holding.  Add some Heart Sparkle Drops (AC-0160) on the card front.

Dutch Door/Barn Door Card | Best Wishes

I have heard this type of card called a Dutch Door Card or Barn Door Card.  I thought I would share this with you so that you can see more of the prints in action from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).

Best Wishes Dutch Door4

I layered some of the patterns from the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051)  onto pieces of Lemon Grass (CS-0019) before adhering them to a Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card base.  Using the Spring Botanicals (SS-0544), I stamped the flower image on Whip Cream (CS-0040) in Watermelon Fusion (IP-0027) ink and then the stems in Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink.  I used the Journey Ovals (DI-0042) to cut out the stamped piece.  Using Lemon Grass (IP-0022) ink, I stamped the Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock before cutting it out using the coordinating die.

Best Wishes Dutch Door3

Using Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) and a Small Blending Brush (TO-0097), I brushed the Sparkle Silk onto the floral image.

Best Wishes Dutch Door4

Using the Just Write Gel Pens (JD-0060), I traced over the letters in Best Wishes to add a little more interest.

Best Wishes Dutch Door5

I adhered the pieces onto the card base using Easy Glide (AD-0081.  I still felt that it needed something so I added some Fashion Gold (AC-0292).  I really think they helped to finish off the card.

Best Wishes Dutch Door1

And because I am curious, what do you call this type of card, Dutch Door or Barn Door.  Drop me a comment and let me know.

Best Wishes

I Love, Love, Love the new Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) that is in the new Bloom This Way Mini Trends Catalog (CL-0030)!!!!!  They are so beautiful!!!!

I stamped the saying Best Wishes from the Everyday Script Bundle (BD-0344) in Black Licorice (IP-0041) ink onto a piece of Bubble Gum (CS-0099) card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

Best Wishes 1

I added Sparkle Silk (IP-0126) to the Best Wishes piece and well as the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051) piece.  Using Easy Glide (AD-0081) I adhered the Spring Filled Prints piece to a piece of Watermelon Fusion (CS-0039) before adhering it to the Whip Cream (CS-0040) card base.  Using Foam Squares (AD-0084 and AD-0085), I popped up the Best Wishes onto the lower right corner of the card front.

Best Wishes 3

I love that the focal point of this card is really the Spring Filled Prints (PP-0051).  They are so beautiful that they really should take center stage.

Best Wishes 2
