Beauty Abounds in Spring Colours

Beauty Abounds in Spring Colours

The Beauty Abounds stamp set with coordinating dies is an amazing bundle that can be used for any season of the year!  For this card, I’ve chosen 3 subtle spring colours – Petal Pink, Soft Sea Foam and So Saffron.  When you cut shapes out of the Soft Sea Foam layer before it’s attached to the card base, you’re certainly making a smart choice for wisely using your cardstock!

 

 

Details and instructions:

  1. Cut Petal Pink Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Soft Sea Foam Cardstock at 5″ x 3-3/4″.  TIP:  Use Big Shot and your choice of butterflies from the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies to cut out 3 or 5 small butterflies before adhering this layer over the card base.  These will be glued to the front layer of the finished card with Liquid Glue.
  3. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″.  Use the large dots and the small dots from the Beauty Abounds stamp set with Soft Sea Foam Classic Ink, Petal Pink Classic Ink and So Saffron Classic Ink to create a subtle border along the left side.
  4. Use Petal Pink Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set near the bottom right.
  5. Use Petal Pink Classic Ink to stamp the greeting from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set on the inside of the card base.
  6. Use Early Espresso Classic Ink to stamp the flower stem from the Beauty Abounds stamp set over the subtle border.
  7. Embellish with 3 or 5 Clear Rhinestones.

It’s hard to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to highlight!

It’s hard to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to highlight!

When using the Make A Wish stamp set with Classic Ink that coordinates with the DSP, it’s hard to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to highlight.  So by using this technique shared by Deseree Krumm, I didn’t have to decide and I can enjoy both sides of the Designer Series Paper!

Details and instructions:

    1. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
    2. Use the 3rd largest Rectangular Stitched Framelit with the Big Shot and the Magnetic Platform to cut out a rectangle in the front of the card base.  TIP: I prefer to place the Framelit on the inside of the front so that the nicer looking finished edges would be visible.
    3. Cut your choice of Share What You Love DSP at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use Snail Adhesive along the edges to attach to the front of the card base. The reverse side of the DSP will show on the inside of the card.  This is a great way to display both sides of the DSP!
    4. Use coordinating Classic Ink (Rich Razzleberry or Grapefruit Grove) to stamp the greeting from the Life is Grand stamp set on the Whisper White rectangle.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach over the DSP on the front of the card.  Add a coloured or sparkling embellishment.
    5. Use coordinating Classic Ink (Rich Razzleberry or Grapefruit Grove) to stamp another greeting from the Life is Grand stamp set on the inside of the card.

This is what the inside looks like – nice to be able to see the “other” side of the DSP!
