Hello and welcome to this month's Ink & Share Blog Hop. This month we're hopping to the theme of Easter/Spring, so join us and get inspired by all these creative projects made by talented demonstrators from all over the world!
For my project I decided to follow the spring theme. Right now, sad to say, but it is still winter here in Calgary, Alberta. Our front yard snow pile is still waist deep (I kid you not!), and snow is still in the forecast. Depressing, right?! So to ward off my winter blues, I made this colorful card!
I chose the Orange Blossoms and Blooms and Wishes stamp sets for my flowers and leaves. I started stamping my big flowers, one on each corner, with my Melon Mambo ink pad. I did make masks for these flowers out of Magic Cover (a Dollar store item), but this is totally optional.
Then it was just a matter of filling up the whole card with various leaves and flowers using all of these ink pads: Flirty Flamingo, Night of Navy, Tempting Turquoise, Emerald Envy, Old Olive, Lemon Lime Twist, and Bermuda Bay.
When I was happy with how it looked, I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and then stamped my sentiment in Basic Black ink, which was from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. I then layered this onto a piece of Gold Foil sheet, which was then adhered to a Whisper White card base. A couple of rhinestone jewels later and my spring card is done!
I really enjoyed making this card...it made me realize that I don't always need all the fancy stuff to make a nice card. Sometimes all you need is a stamp and an ink pad! But who am I kidding...I love all the fancy stuff too!!! LOL.
Anyway thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to see you next time! Please continue hopping along with us...next up is the talented Lisa Kmiec! Happy stamping!
