Simon Says Stamp Color Coordinates: Spring Flowers

color-coordinates-2017

Welcome everyone!! I hope you’re having a good day.  I have a Color Coordinates recipe that is perfect for Spring flowers! I’ve used some of our new ink colors; Rose Apple, Clementine, Velvet Orchid and Dusty Sage. For the neutral, I’ve used Fog cardstock.

I started by die cutting the Forget Me Not Flowers from Neenah white cardstock and colored them in using Tsukineko sponge daubers with the inks.

I concentrated the ink in the center of the flowers and blended it out to the edges. Blending is a great way to extend your ink colors by creating lighter shades. Once I had my flowers and leaves colored, I arranged them onto a white embossed Flower Medallion stamped on a Fog cardstock panel. I die cut Hello from black cardstock and set it onto a strip of white. To finish up, I added Studio Katia round drops to the flower centers.

I’ve filmed the process of making this card which you can view below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

Rejoicing with Yoonsun: Look for the Miracles

Hello crafty friends, this is Yoonsun and I’m so happy to start my monthly “Rejoice with Yoonsun” series!!

Spring is in the air! Trees come into bud and spring flowers are blooming. We can smell and enjoy many beautiful flowers just waking up from the cold winter. So today I will be sharing with you simple and clean spring flower card with my favourite More Spring Flowers and Look For The Miracles stamp sets.
Rejoicing with Yoonsun: Look for the Miracles

I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the More Spring Flower set on white card stock with Intense black dye ink, coloured them with Copic markers, and then die cut them with the matching dies:

(Red flower) R22, R24, R29, R39, E59 markers I used
(Yellow flower) YR14, Y08, Y02 markers I used
(Purple flower) B97, R85, V12 markers I used
(Leaves) B97, BG13, YG06 markers I used

Next, I die cut rectangle panel from kraft cardstock using the 3.75” x 5” rectangle panel die in the Basic Rectangles die set. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Look For The Miracles set on it in white, added some opaque white ink splatters. I mounted the sentiment panel on Ivory card base using double-sided tape first, and then added flowers on it using foam tape.
