Happy Spring to you today! I’m not sure who all has tulips yet but when you do, you know it’s Spring!
I started out with the NEW poppystamps Layered Tulips die set. I cut the petal piece in three pinks and instead of using all three colors on one flower, I went with three different color tulips. I’m glad I did this time!
I went over my options of what to do with them after I made them and thought…they’d be great in a basket!
I love this basket from the poppystamps Woven Basket Pop Up Easel Set. I die cut it in kraft cardstock, then ran it back through with the embossing stack for the big shot. I shim it quite a bit to get the embossing deep.
Then using the mini ink blending tool and Gathered Twigs Distress ink pad I browned it up!
I used the grass and the bow from the basket set also.
It’s an A2 size card!
My next two cards are using the NEW Memory Box Floral Stems die.
I die cut the floral stems from Memory Box watercolor cardstock and colored it with Zig Clean Color Brush markers and water.
I die cut an A2 panel of kraft cardstock with the NEW Memory Box Curved Cap Pinpoint Layers die set, then die cut the NEW poppystamps Pointy Lattice Plate in white cardstock and layered it over the top. Trimmed off the excess.
I made an A2 size white cardbase and adhered the lattice panel direct to the cardfront. The outside part of the panel is adhered with the thin mounting tape that I love so much.
I wrapped some twine and then the NEW Memory Box Posh Birthday Wishes Hot Foil Plate and Cutting die set for the sentiment.
As soon as I finished this, I thought, this could be a great Easter card! I didn’t get any Easter cards made. Maybe I’ll have time to make something for the grands tomorrow.
I added some gold fairy gems in a few places on the lattice.
I always love the ‘window’ look on a card! I always notice windows on houses too! lol Right now mine are dirty! We had one storm that blew snow so bad and it was dirty! I was sad because it’d only been a month since I’d washed windows! Figures!
My last card…clean and simple. I wasn’t sure I should even post it but it is nice IRL.
This looks champagne color but it’s really silver. My last picture will show it silver but it’s not the best photo!
The NEW Memory Box Confetti Dot Hot Foil Plate turned out really neat! I was pleased. Finally getting better at doing the large foil plates. I was afraid to shim it but that’s what it needs for the machine I have.
I die cut the foiled panel with the NEW Memory Box A2 Rectangle Frames Die Set and layered that with the thin mounting tape on my A2 size white cardbase.
I die cut the NEW Memory Box Happy Birthday Tender Script die in white and silver foil cardstocks…so fun!
ok this last picture shows it silver….get your sunglasses!
It doesn’t do it justice but at least you can see it’s silver! The struggle is real taking photos!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I appreciate it and thank you so much for your kind comments!
Have a blessed Easter weekend and talk to you again soon!
Here’s a shopping list to the products I used to make these cards…
