God Is Love

 

My card is bursting with Spring colors, which were inspired by the challenge at Global Design Project: Lemon Lime Twist, Daffodil Delight, and Grapefruit Grove.

 

I began by stamping two floral branches in Lemon Lime Twist on Thick Whisper White cardstock. There is a die for cutting the branches in the coordinating Cross of Hope die set. How handy is that!

Next, I stamped the banner with “God Is Love” in Black ink, and used it’s die from the same die set for cutting.The butterfly (same stamp and die sets) was stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink.

 

After stamping the Daffodil Delight splatter (Wonderful Romance stamp set) across the middle of my Whisper White layer, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Subtle Textured embossing folder.

I adhered this layer to a Thick Whisper White card base, and glued the two branches in place. The sentiment and and butterfly were positioned on dimensionals.

 

I just love those Iridescent Sequins, so sprinkled on a few of those, and my Easter card was complete.

I wish you a day filled with God’s love!

Stencil Technique Using Laser-Cut Paper

Stenciling has always fascinated me, and a technique I use continually. Today’s card is in one of my favorite colors, Mint Macaron.

Stenciling

 

I was inspired by this week’s Fusion challenge; the color mint, and the sketch with circles.

 

The pattern for stenciling is from the Delightfully Detailed DSP, which I placed over a piece of 4″ X 5 1/4″ Whisper White cardstock. The stencil was held in place on four corners with Washi Tape. Then, I inked a Sponge Dauber with Mint Macaron ink, and daubed over the pattern. Once satisfied with the coverage, I lifted the stencil, and voila!

 

I used a Rectangle Stitched die to cut my art piece to size, and glued it to a Mint Macaron card base.

The sentiment, “Congratulations,” is from the Well Said stamp set, which fit perfectly within a Rectangle Stitched die.

 

I stamped the sentiment in Tranquil Tide ink on Whisper White cardstock, and positioned it on Mini-Dimensionals, as in the Fusion sketch.

For a touch of sparkle, I added some Iridescent Sequins.

 

If you haven’t tried stenciling, you should! I hope my project has inspired you. You’ll find my supplies in the Product List below, where clicking on the pictures will take you to my store for purchasing.

#simplestamping for Paper Players #433

 

 

For Jaydee’s Clean and Simple challenge, I used minimal supplies to make it a #simplestamping project.  

You can follow along with my video recording below.

Featuring: first video, Painted Seasons stamp set, Rooted in Nature stamp set, 6 ink colors of the rainbow; #video #simplestamping #pp433 #cardchallenges #onelayer #cleanandsimple #succulents #handmadecards #stampinup #quick&easycards

#simplestamping

 

I selected the “Distinktive” succulent stamp from the Painted Seasons stamp set, and six colors of ink for stamping: Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Highland Heather. I stamped the succulent, forming a rainbow, across Whisper White cardstock, cleaning the stamp on my Stampin’ Scrub between colors. The dots were added with a second stamp from Painted Seasons.

 

“You are wonderful” is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which I stamped in Black ink. 

My “one layer” was adhered to its Thick Whisper White card base with Snail Adhesive, and was the fastest card I’ve made in a long time. But, I like the results, and it would be great for a beginner. 

 

Here goes my embarrassing video. I promise to work on my camera placement!

I appreciate you visiting! The supplies I used today are in my Product List below. Clicking on the pictures will take you to my store for purchasing. The Painted Seasons stamp set is a FREE item with a 50.00 order. Don’t wait, because it’s no longer available after March 31st.
