Springtime Hello Card with Pretty Pink Posh

Monday, April 15, 2024

Hi, friends! I felt inspired to combine flowers for a Spring wreath from this year and last year’s Spring releases! I started with my background and I had a natural, apricot cardstock in my stash and I did a tone on tone look by blending Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide with the Easter Words Stencil. After splattering a green, metallic watercolor, I used the largest Stitched Torn Rectangle Die when it was dry.

Next I stamped my images with an alcohol marker friendly black ink - I stamped the wreath and small flowers from the Leafy Spring Wreath Stamp Set along with the daisies and bow from the Daisies Stamp Set. I used my OLO markers to color them in and you can see the colors in my video today.

When I was done coloring, I used the Daisies Coordinating Dies and Leafy Spring Wreath Coordinating Dies to cut all of the images out. I planned out my wreath and adhered the flower and bow to the wreath with liquid adhesive. I used foam adhesive to attach my wreath to the stenciled panel. I had a yellow, scalloped Sentiment Strip Die cut from another project and was happy it matched the yellow of my flowers!

I cut another strip from white cardstock and stamped my sentiment from the Sentiment Strips: Easter Stamp Set with pink ink. I layered the die cuts together and popped it up on my panel with foam adhesive as well. The panel was attached to my card base and I added a few 4mm Clear Droplets on the wreath to give it some subtle shine and a dewy look! I hope you enjoyed today’s card - I’m so inspired by the apricot, pink, green and yellows… Beautiful colors for Spring!
