Bright flowers and a cheerful note are always nice to receive when you’re feeling under the weather. Today’s project includes sunny colors and a fun way to create a “container” for your flowers.
I love to find different ways to color floral stamps on my cards. Alcohol inks are my top pick because of the ability to blend and create shadows as well as the control factor. I do love the freeform look of watercolor, but controlling the color can sometimes be difficult. Tim Holtz Distress Crayons can be a great option to get that watercolor look with a little more control on your project.
Creating expensive looking note cards at home is super easy with a heat gun, some Versamark ink, and gold and silver embossing powder. For today’s project, I’m using a 4-bar sized notecard I created from white card stock. This measures 3 ½” x 4 7/8” when folded.
Easter is just around the corner and along with the baskets and pretty flower arrangements, it’s always nice to include a card. I’m creating a springtime scene today using a die from Sizzix called Bunny Scene.
I like to keep it simple when it comes to gift wrap and gift bags. I mainly have kraft colored and white options and dress them up with ribbon or other embellishments I have in my craft room. I recently discovered another great option for decorating packages. For today’s project, I created some pretty floral pieces using a die set from Sizzix/David Tutera called Lace Flower Framlits.
In past posts, I’ve shown how I use scrapbooking products to create cards. For today’s project, this is made even easier with Pink Paislee’s Confetti Wishes Card Kit. Everything in the kit is paired down to make cardmaking super easy and quick.
