Crystal here with a lovely card using the Pretty Jars stamp and die bundle set by Pink & Main. Oh my goodness… I absolutely love this bundle!! The stamps are so beautiful and the dies make cutting out this intricate floral stamp super easy peasy!!
I still had the beautiful Echo Park Spring Fling papers on my desk so I decided to use them again for this card. I cut strips of a few different papers to create the pattern underneath the focal image. The background greenish/blue paper is also from the paper pad.
I stamped the flowers twice because I wanted to fussy cut the flowers to pop them up on the focal image for a bit more dimension. Working with colors that coordinated with the papers, I colored both sets of the flowers. I used the following Copic markers ~ RV00, RV21, Y13, Y35, YG11, YG23.
I then die cut the flowers and fussy cut the one set… cutting it on the black line. I colored the outer edge of the fussy cut flowers with a Memento tuxedo black marker to clean up the edges and then I popped them up on the other flowers.
I then adhered the flowers to a white die cut stitched oval and popped the oval piece up on the card. I knew I wanted to use the ‘sweet friend’ sentiment from the set but I wanted to add a little somethin’ somethin’ so I pulled out the ‘hello’ die from Pink & Main that was included in a past card kit and die cut three times out of white card stock. I colored one of the die cut hellos with Copic markers in an ombre style and then adhered all the die cut layers. I stamped the ‘sweet friends’ sentiment on white card stock and then die cut it with a banner die and layered it on a strip of pink paper from the Spring Fling paper pad that I also die cut with the same banner die.
In retrospect, I kinda wish I had stamped the ‘sweet friend’ sentiment in a dark pink… but at the time, I was packing my studio and my supplies were limited. I am still very happy with how this card turned out! The design is definitely one that would work to use up some of those scraps of patterned paper that we all have laying around!!
Hey, everyone! It’s Lynnea and I created a set of one layer cards perfect for Spring using the Warm Spring Wishes stamp set from Gina K Designs!
I created my own stencil to use for these cards. It was so simple to do – I just took a piece of stencil plastic and die cut a circle from the center! I actually used the negative piece – the center circle – and adhered it to the center of my cards and used two colors of Distress Oxide Sprays over the top – Cracked Pistachio and Iced Spruce.
The basic layout of all four of my cards is the same. I stamped the leaf image from the Gina K Designs Warm Spring Wishes stamp set repeatedly around my masked circle and stamped a butterfly in the center. I used Distress Oxide Inks for all of my stamping except for the sentiment – I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for that.
I hope you’ll check out my video below for the tutorial! Thanks for stopping by!
For this first card I stamped out my images, cut them and colored using Alcohol Markers. I decided then to use the Lawn Fawn Shadowbox Die set and create a fun card. I used GinaK Amalgam Ink to stamp my images as I knew I would be using the alcohol markers, and ScraPerfect “Best Glue Ever” to adhere my images within the card.
This card was so easy to making using the Gina K Designs Wreath Builder. I used the small images from the Spring Showers stamp set and repeatedly stamped using the wreath builder and my Tim Holtz stamp platform. I colored the images using my alcohol markers, cut 2 circles using a set of dies from my stash and stamped the Hello Spring sentiment using GinaK Amalgam ink. I used foam to pop up the sentiment panel, ScraPerfect glue to adhere my layers together and with that my second project was complete.

I just adore them! I inked them up along with a bunch of other images from this set using Memento tuxedo black ink and then colored them in using the following Copic markers: Y06, Y35, YG11, YG23, RV000, RV00, RV14, RV21, RV29, E000, E00, E11, N0, N1, N2, N5, N8, B000, B00, B02.
To build my scene I die cut a piece of white card stock using the Memory Box Wrapped Scalloped die and then I blended a little Tumbled Glass distress ink for my sky. I then cut a strip of patterned paper for my ‘ground’ from the Echo Park Spring Fling paper pad and also die cut the grass from the same paper pad. I adhered the grass to the back of the ‘ground’ paper and then adhered just the bottom portion of the combined papers to the scene so that I could be free to place things in amongst the grass, like the cute mushroom. I adhered all the images to create my scene and then popped up the focal panel on a white card base. To finish off the front of the card, I stamped my sentiment using my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. Now, just a little tip… I should have stamped the sentiment before I popped up the focal panel, but because I used the Stamp Platform I was able to stamp the sentiment a few times to get the crisp sentiment I wanted.
The sentiment on the front of the card just keeps you hanging so I just HAD to add to the inside of the card. I combined the patterned papers again to continue the design on the inside of the card. I added another gnome… I colored several since I was on a roll. LOL
And then I stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card. I decided to add the little clock to this gnome’s hand to tie in the sentiment… so cute! Now, I got to thinking you could leave the card like this basically saying that the card is the recipient’s birthday gift. Or…
You could slide a gift card in there for just a little something… a quick gift idea!
Here’s a close up of the scene on the front of the card… I went a little crazy with the flowers, but couldn’t help myself! So many cute images to color in this set!
For this card, I wanted a fun border so I used a stitched scallop border die and trimmed the edge of the card on the right. I stamped the image in the center of the cut down panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I masked her and used distress ink to create a bed of grass for her to lay in the cool spring air. I used Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio.
I then colored the image with Copic markers and added a few Nuvo drops to finish the card.
