Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. This winter has been long and I am dreaming of Spring. Since Easter and Spring are around the corner I decided to create a Chick celebrating Spring.
Below you will find the steps to create your own Sassy Chick Spring Fever card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish cardstock 110lbs 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold for a vertical side fold card.
Step 2 – Diecut Garden Notes Frame It – Stitched Circles to the center front of card.
Step 3 – On a scrap piece of cardstock ink Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn. Diecut Tree (grass die). Diecut Adventure Edges (Clouds die) on scrap piece of cardstock. Use the diecut as a stencil using an mini ink blending tool and add Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass. Adhere the grass on the bottom of the clouds and adhere the panel to the inside of the card with the clouds showing on the front of card.
Step 4 – Diecut Little Chick using White Soft Finish cardstock. Color the pieces and assemble using Kids Choice Glue. Cut a slit on the left wing. Diecut Party Accessories (Balloon and string) and assemble. Adhere to card placing the string through the slit. Diecut Party Accessories (glasses) and adhere to Little Click.
Step 5 – Stamp Spring sentiments using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the bottom of the card.
Step 6 – Diecut Spring Basket (flowers & grass patches) color in and adhere to card.
Step 7 – For added interest apply Glossy Accents to the balloon and glasses. Be sure to let it dry thoroughly.
This card can be used for any occasion by changing the sentiment and character. Below is a link to the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
Good morning all!! Kathy here, with two of the wonderful new dies just released in Susan Tierney Cockburn’s newest collection –– Lupines and the Garden Watering Can!
Lupines come in so many beautiful colors, it was fun to pick these three! You could also make Texas Blue Bonnets with this die if you’d like!
The Lupines are very easy to make, and aren’t they such pretty and happy flowers? Makes you realize Spring IS right around the corner!
I’ve used several colors to give character to the Watering Can, and added Ladder Fern, Baby’s Breath, and Ivy as fillers; all on an embossed piece of decorator paper. The Watering Can is sitting on paper from the Wood Effects paper. And, of course, all of these flowers were put together with the Kid’s Choice Glue.
Again, don’t forget to add the ladybug to one of the leaves!
Hello Paper Gardeners, Diane here with a spring card for you!
Winter is still roaring pretty strong in my part of the world, even with February behind us. The sunlight as been shy and we are longing for wonderful warm days. With this card, I thought I would make an offering to Mother Nature and let her know that we are ready for a change in scenery! Anyone want to join in?
Step 1: Background
For this card, you will need a 6 inches X 12 inches piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock (90 lb), score and fold in half to make a 6 X 6 inches card.
From a lavender cardstock, cut a 5 3/4 inches square.
Out of the White Soft Finish cardstock (90 lb), cut a 5 1/2 inches square.
On the 5 1/2 square piece of white cardstock, spray some lavender and yellow inks. Allow to dry or use an embossing gun.
Over the layer of sprayed ink, dab some Lilac and Yellow Distress Oxide. Make some different intensity of colors by putting more or less pressure on the dabber. Again let dry.
Cut out a stencil using the Circle Background (#1262) die.
With the stencil and a make-up applicator, apply some White PanPastel, here and there to draw some white circles.
Adhere all layers, one on top of the others, with some Double Sided Tape.
Step 2: Egg
Die cut the Elegant Easter Egg Large (#1628) using some White Soft Finish Cardstock (90 lb) covered with some Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Peel-off the protective sheet and cover with some Lavender (620) – Silk Microfine Glitter.
Rub the glitter with fingers to make it really shine.
On a piece of White Soft Finish Cardstock (90 lb), cut the outer part of the egg.
Glue the glittered part of the egg on the white egg using Kids Choice Glue.
Using a lavender ribbon, tie a bow around the egg.
Glue the glittered egg on top of the card base.
Step 3: Tulips
Using the Garden Notes – Tulips 2 (#1296) dies set, cut 3 times the 2 petals dies and 3 time the pistils die, out of White Soft Finish Cardstock (90 lb).
Out of a green cardstock, cut out 3 stems, a couple of individual leaves and 3 calyx.
Color the tulips using some ink marker in a variegating manner. Leaving the middle white, brush on light strokes of lavender. Use a green marker to color the center of the tulips and the pistils.
On a Molding Pad and using the Loop Tool (from the 4 pcs. All Metal Tool Set) , shape the tulips to give them dimension.
Work the leaves using the Leaf Pad and the Leaf Tool from the from the 4 pcs. All Metal Tool Set.
Shade the edges of the leaves with some green ink and the vein with some Yellow Bright PanPastel.
Finish the leaves with the Medium Ball Stylus also from the 4 pcs. All Metal Tool Set to give some dimension.
