Happy Spring


I’m sure many of you are ready for Spring.  How about something happy and bright?

This week the Penny Black DT will be showcasing cards using the new Spring stamps that were made available last Friday.  

Today’s challenge is to create a card using fussy cutting, punches and/or dies.  Here is what I came up with:


SUPPLIES Stamps: (all Penny Black) Garden Critters; Salutations Coloring: Black Dye Ink (Hero Arts); Prismacolor Pencils; Dylusions Ink Sprays – Cut Grass, London Blue, Pure Sunshine (Ranger); Heidi Swapp Color Shine – Primrose (Pink Paislee); Broken China Reinker (Ranger); Mini Mister (Ranger) Dies: High Rise Alphabet Dies (Lifestyle Crafts); Aida Impression Plate (PTI)

I decided to use the new set, Garden Critters (30-152) to create an Easter card.  I love all Hedgie stamps and I thought it would be great to highlight the image in the word Spring.   The image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and then fussycut.  I individually sprayed a different color on each die-cut letter.  To add texture to the card, I ran the card panel and a impression plate through my die cutting machine.  The individual letters and image were adhered with dimensional foam tape.  Finally, I selectively stamped the word “happy” from a sentiment from the Salutations (30-014) clear set.
