Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

 

I am honored to have been asked to host this week’s Mix It Up Monday Challenge, thank you Lori for the opportunity.

 

It is officially “spring”, the cloud of winter weather in the Pacific Northwest has lifted and the sun is out, well at least on occasion!  March 22nd we had a blast from the north that left us with 6 inches of fresh snow, which should explain the motivation for this challenge.

 

My challenge for you is “Springtime in Pastel”.  I love the softness and simplicity of spring’s first colors, pale pinks, greens, yellows, lavenders and blues.  So for this challenge I would like you to do the following:

 

  • Solid colored cardstock in springs colors (no patterned papers)
  • Texture on your card through embossing
  • The flora of springtime

 

So have fun, think spring and sunshine and can’t wait to see all your beautiful cards.

 

Here is my sample card.

 

 

I made this card using GinaK’s Various Verses flower and sentiment stamps.  The flower was stamped using Gina’s technique coloring direct to stamp, I love the soft look it gives to that gorgeous spring flower.  The colors are from Memento Markers in Summer Sky and New Sprout and the sentiment is Memento’s Tuxedo Black.  The embossing folder is Cuttlebug’s Swiss Dot, one of my favorites and Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles.  The blue card stock is from K & Co “Hopscotch” and the white is GinaK’s Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight card stock in Pure White.  I pop dotted the focal image and used the pretty blue rhinestones from my stash as embellishment.  A very clean and simple look to this.

Mother's Day is in springtime and I was working on a card for that occasion and figured it fit the bill for this challenge quite well with it's pink and yellow colors. Here is my card,  I must say, Barbara, I love your card design so very much too. It is beautiful and I really like that wonky rectangle frame too. It is really perfect with this card. Thanks for the challenge as well too.
