For the first day of the reveals, we are showcasing the following products:
For my first project, here’s how I made the card:
- stamp the images on smooth white card stock. The butterflies I added for my scene are from the Newton’s Birdbath stamp set.
- color the image using Copic markers or any coloring medium of your choice.
- die-cut the image with the coordinating dies.
- die-cut the birch trees using the Forest Scene Builder dies and the grassy hill with the land border die.
- die-cut the rest of the elements needed to create the scene.
- ink up the background on Bristol smooth white card stock with distress oxide inks using the Sunscape stencil. Spray the background with water and dab it dry with a paper towel.
- assemble the card on an A2 size white card base.
- Finish the design by stamping the sentiment and add a pink heart.
I just love this image so much! It reminds me of those times back when I was a child and my sisters and I were riding our bicycles, gathering flowers around the area. Those were simple times that I will always cherish forever. Here’s a closer look:
I would never trade in those times where my friends and I just enjoyed being kids, riding our bikes, playing games and not wanting to come home when it’s starting to get dark because of dinner. I am certainly thankful we didn’t have smart phones and computer games back then.
For my second project, I used the Flower Trio die, Bokeh Stencil set and the Bold Blooms stencil. Here’s how I made the card:
- Ink up some Bristol smooth white card stock using different pastel distress oxide inks with the Bokeh stencil set.
- Die-cut the flowers using the Flower Trio Die.
- Use a stamping mat and bone folder to shape the flowers and give it a little dimension. If you have a round stylus, it’s better.
- Ink up some Bristol smooth white card stock using distress oxide inks and the bold blooms stencil. Spray water and dab it dry with some paper towel. Use clear sequins as shaker element.
- die-cut the diagonal die coverplate and adhere acetate sheet. Add foam adhesive to create the shaker well and adhere on top of the background.
- adhere the flowers and leaves on the card and finish the design by adding the script sentiment die.
Since I used clear sequins as my shaker element, the die-cut flowers really stood out on this card design. I also added the Crystal clear jewels in the middle of the flowers. Here’s a closer look:
I really LOVE how this card turned out. The Flower Trio die set is a must-have for sure. You can even decorate your Spring wreath using this die. The possibilities are endless! Here’s another look:
