We had a spring card class today and here's some of the cards that we did. This card is made with ric rac ribbon and lots of punches. I used the circle scallop punch by Marvy, ek success leaf punch and small daisy punch by Marvy. The inside of the flower is by A Muse and the sentiment is by savvy stamps. Tip: If you roll your punches in your ink pads, you can get a really cool dimension of color on your cardstock. I tend to roll a lot of pieces in ink!
This card was made with light blue stardream paper cut at 4" X 9"... and folded.
The flower stamps are impress, memory box and rubber soul and sentiment by A Muse. The ink pads are paper salon spa, color box chalk ice blue and versafine green. I then used white liquid pearls to embellish the card. It's so springy!
This next card is made with stamps from Hero arts. The cherry blossom is stamped in dark peony color box chalk and then I stamped it again on another piece of white cardstock in tangerine and punched out the cented and put foam tape to raise it. I then stamped the butterfly in lime pastel and stamped it again on white cardstock and just cut out the butterfly and stuck it on top. The sentiment is by A Muse and the flower stem is a flourish by memory box. I put a gemstone in the center of the flower to make it shimmer.
This last card is really simple. I used the memory box leaf stamp and flowers and stamped randomly. Sentiment is by A Muse and I used our new scalloped corner rounder to make a tag like sentiment. I love this new corner rounder. If you ever feel like your card is too plain.. just add ribbon, glitter, gemstones or a small splash of another piece of cardstock and you'll see a big difference!
