Happy Spring

Bluebird 2
Hi everyone!  I would like to think of spring, since our forecast for this week-end is more snow! So let's get started with our card.

Memory Box Products used:

  • Blossom Bird Stamp #D1052
  • Happy Spring Stamp #B1215
  • Twelve Days #G1899
  • Contempo Circle Border Die #98451
  • Penne Frame #98378
  • Cardstock: Lagoon, Vanilla Bean, Kraft  and Parchment
  • Distressed Dots Cardstock:Vanilla Bean

Instructions:

  1. Ink Blossom Bird with Broken China Distress Ink and branch portion with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  Stamp onto Parchment cardstock that was punched using a 1 1/2" plain circle punch.  Ink the music stamp with Vintage Photo Ink.  Off stamp it onto scrap paper, then stamp over image.
  2. From Lagoon cardstock punch a 1 3/4" circle.
  3. Using Vanilla Bean distressed dot paper, die cut the Penne Frame.
  4. Die cut the Contempo Border using Kraft cardstock. (a good tip for using intricate dies, is to place a piece of waxed paper between the die and your cardstock.  This helps release and cut those tiny pieces). 
  5. Ink all the edges of your cardstock with Vintage Photo Ink.
  6. Using your Vintage Photo Ink pad, swipe some color onto a craft mat or palette.  Water down the ink and using a paint brush spatter ink on the lagoon cardstock layer.  Stamp Happy Spring with Vintage Photo Ink.  I took my stamp off the wooden block by placing it in the microwave on high for 10 seconds.  Carefully peel it off the wood block.  I cut it in half and placed them on an acrylic block to stamp them.
  7. Assemble layers as shown in photo. Adhere to a Vanilla Bean Note Card. Glue pearls on sides of frame.

I hope you enjoyed this spring card!

I love this card. I love how the paper is speckled like some eggs are speckled. I may have to case this.
