Spring has Sprung 2

    I was so busy making cards this weekend that I am able to make a few posts. I hope you are able to catch up with me.  This post is a continuation of yesterdays floral posts.  I just love Spring and all the beautiful flowers that are in bloom and Stampin Up has so many beautiful floral stamps, that it is hard to pick a favorite.  The DSP on these cards are from last years sale-a-bration but it is still one of my very favorite DSP's that Stampin Up has offered, so I use it alot. On the last card I tried my hand at the new Bokeh technique. Take a look and feel free to make a comment.

Celebrate Spring

Supplies Needed
  • Basic Black, and Whisper White card stock.
  • Sweet Sorbet DSP
  • Momento Black ink
  • Stampin Write Markers
  • Bloom with Hope, and Perfectly Penned.
  • Squares Collection Framelits. 
  • Crystal Effects.
      The card base is cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4",  DSP  cut at 5 3/8" by 4 1/8".  Black square is cut 1/4" inch larger than the biggest square framelit on card. Glue Black square down centered on top half of card, the Stamp sentiment below.  For Center Piece,  first stamp and color your image and then lay your three framelits down on top of your image and run through the Big Shot. The outer most frame is glued flat, the next layer is popped up with dimensional, the middle layer is two dimensional high. I then used crystal effects in the center of flower. set it aside to dry.

Soft and Subtle

Supplies Needed
  • Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, and Pool Party card stock.
  • Soft Suede, Pool Party, Sahara Sand, and VersMark ink.
  • Bloom with Hope, and  gorgeous Grunge Stamp Sets.
  • Natural 5/8' Chevron Ribbon, Linen Thread, and Subtle Button "Pool Party".
  • Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.
     Card base cut at 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". Pool Party cut at 3" x 5 1/8" and ran through embossing folder, place ribbon on bottom of Pool Party card stock as above and glue card stock to left side of card.  Soft Suede is cut at 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" and Sahara Sand cut at 3" x 3 1/4". on the small piece of Sahara Sand Stamp floral image with VersMark and use clear embossing powder and heat gun to raise image. Next use Gorgeous Grunge Stamp and Sahara Sand ink and cover square. Then with Sponge Dauber fill in flower using Pool Party ink.  I used Soft Suede to stamp sentiment. Glue image to Soft Suede piece, and use dimensional on soft suede. Put linen thread through button tie bow and place on end of ribbon. 

Bokeh Bouquet

Supplies Needed

  • Coastal Cabana, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White card stock.
  • Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, Lost Lagoon, Chocolate Chip, and Craft White ink.
  • Sponge Daubers
  • Stencil with different sizes of holes cut out.
  • Too Kind Stamp Set.
  • Crystal Effects.
  • Chocolate 5/8"  Satin Ribbon "retired"

     Card base cut at 5 1/2"x 4 1/4". Chocolate Chip cut at 5 3/8" x 4 1/8". Large White cut at 5 1/4" x 4". Small White cut at 2" x 4 1/4". Stamp Image on Small Whisper White card stock, at top, Tear bottom 1/3 off and stamp sentiment. Ink edges with sponge dauber in Chocolate Chip ink. I then took crystal effects and went over the darkest elements on the flowers and set aside to dry. On the large piece of Whisper White card stock I did the bokeh technique using Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, and Coastal Cabana ink along with the Craft White. Here is a web page with instructions on the Bokeh technique. everything dries, and it will take a while, the layers are all glued flat. The bow is tied and placed on with a glue dot.
