Glorious Spring

The last project for this month has a little cute bunny who is ready to jump on an Easter card too.

Step by Step :

1.  Blend a white cardstock with Pan Pastel colours
2.  Stamp with Versafine Imperial Purple some stamps of Spring Foliage in first and second
     generation
3.  Stamp with Versafine Black Onyx the little Bunny and Glorious Spring Rubber Stamp Sheet A5,
     as shadow of the decoupage one and the sentiment, directly on the card.
4.  Stamp with Versafine Black Onyx the little Bunny again and cut around the edges
5.  Glue the second bunny in front of the "shadow" one
6.  Assemble the card, lighten some folige with Stickles Star Dust and glue a paper flower as an embellishment.

                                    

I hope you liked my monthly projects and you could have some new and different inspirations from my projects.

No Matter.....

Here is my second Spring card with Pan Pastel for you and this time I tried a rough cardstock. As you can see, Pan Pastel on this kind of paper gives an interesting texture as a background.

Step by Step :

1.  Blend several Pan Pastel colours  on the cardstock
2.  Put white Dina Wakley Media Gesso  through the stencil and let it dry completely
3. Stamp with Versafine Black  Onyx the Bunny from the Bunny Set of Glorious Spring Rubber Stamp
    Sheet A5, as well as the sentiment, on a previously coloured cardstock
4. Glue the sentiment on the cardstock and assemble the card



Thank you for passing by

Spring

The themes the Design Team have been given for March are "Spring and Pan Pastel" and I hope to inspire you with my three posts during this month. What is the best way to start?
Daffodils are my most loved flowers for several reasons during these months, and therefore I used them for my first project.

Step by Step
1.   Background mat :  blend on your white cardstock several Pan Pastel colour, stamp with
      Versafine randomly a foliage of the set "Spring Foliage Rubber Stamp Sheet A5"  and a sentiment
       of Glorius Spring Rubber Stamp Sheet A5
2.    Mat : Stamp three daffodils with Versamark Stamp Pad on a white cardstock 
3.    Blend Pan Pastel yellow tones on one side of the cardstock and a yellow violet tone on the other
       side.  
4.     Decoupage Daffodil : Stamp a daffodil with Versamark on another cardstock. colour it  with    
        Pan Pastel and cut around the edges
5.     Stamp with Versafine only "Spring " on a left over piece of one of your mats
6.     Glue the mats, the daffodils and the sentiment and assemble the card.



See you soon with another card

Never Stop




I had fun in playing with my thoughts for this card.

Step by Step
1.  On your white card blend very lightly in different areas  Distress Inkpad  Cracked Pistachio and
     Fozzil Amber
2.  Position your stencil on the card and apply with varying pressure Distress Inkpad  Lucky Clover
3.  Move the same stencil slightly and apply Distress Inkpad Fossilized Amber
4.  Stamp some grasses from Silhouette Grasses with Versamark Inkpad Onyx Black directly on the
     card
5.  Stamp on white cardstock the sentiment of Words to Dazzle & Sparkle, blend the edges with
     Distress Inkpad  Lucky Clover and attach it with sticky foam on the card.



The stamps of Silhouette Grasses are so stylish and versatile,  I think you have to try them.

Altered cover


Have you ever thought of giving someone a pack of envelopes with cards as a little gift?  Well, I bought a pack at the stationery shop and decided immediately to alter the cover because the white colour seemed too obvious and boring.

Step by Step :

1. Cut a piece of white cardstock just a little smaller than the cover of your pack of envelopes
2. Apply randomly Dina Wakley Media White Gesso and let dry
3. Blend all over the surface Distress Inkpad Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover, Fossilized Amber and
    Evergreen Bough
4. Stamp a grass from Silhouette Grasses with Distress Paint - Tarnished Brass and apply the paint
    also on the edges
5. "Just for you" from Words to Dazzle & Sparkle set, is stamped  as sentiment with Versafine Inkpad 
     Onyx Black  on a white cardstock  and blended with Distress Inkpad  Old Paper and stuck on the
     mat
6.  Blend all the outside and the inside the the same green colors of point 3.
7.  Glue the mat on the front of the pack .... et voilà...  the little gift changes its appearance.


I hope you liked this idea of alteration.

Frame & Cut


Hi ladies, today I want to use both the frame and the cut to make two cards.

Frame
1. Blend a mat with Distress Inkpad Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain and cut it with a frame die
2. Glue the frame on the card with Ranger Triangular Collage Glue Stick on the white card
3. Stamp a flower of Floral Notes Rubber Stamp sheet  in the frame with Versamark - Watermark 
    Stamp Pad and emboss with WOW  Embossing Powder Metallic Gold Sparkle
4. Darken the edges of the white card with Distress Inkpad Brushed Corduroy  and put a golden
    ribbon as decoration

Cut
1.  Use the cut of point 1 of the Card Frame
2.  Stamp on it a flower of Floral Notes Rubber Stamp sheet with Versamark - Watermark 
     Stamp Pad and emboss with white Embossing Powder
3.  Glue the cut with Ranger Triangular Collage Glue Stick  on the white card
4.  Darken the edges of the white card with Distress Inkpad Brushed Corduroy  and put a golden
    ribbon as decoration



As you can see the result is quite different, even though  my idea was to do two similar cards to use as            " Thank You"  cards.

In the meantime I wish you all a Merry Christmas.
