Spring Cards | Techniques & Inspiration using In Love Arts Shop Products | April 2020

Hello everyone! I have a lot of fun card crafting techniques to inspire you today! I’m using more fabulous products from the In Love Arts Shop, and I created five springtime cards using them. For each card I use a different technique. I had so much fun putting these together; I hope you are inspired to try some, if not all, of these techniques!

I also have a coupon code for 15% off your purchase at the In Love Arts Shop : S5581.


Card #1: Good Times Wave Card

All that this card involves is a lot of die cutting, but I love how it turned out. This wave die cut is a lot of fun to play with! I cut out two panels at the same time and kept switching out the colors. I covered a piece of white card stock with tape runner and paper pieced it all back together.


Card #2: Layer Stamping Peony Card

Layer stamping is so much fun to do, and it’s great to have stamps like this in your stash for the days you don’t feel like coloring. I love the painterly look of these peonies. I also used a scalloped die to cut out a pretty edge to the gray card stock. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.


Card #3: Tone-on-Tone Hello Spring Card

I love background stamps, and the delicate leaves on this one are so pretty. I had fun stamping it out several times and on several different colors of card stock. I cut them out into banners and adhered them down flat onto a kraft card stock panel. I used die cuts for my sentiment, and this card was done.


Card #4: Colored Pencil Flowers Card

I love big floral images, and I pulled out my Prismcolor pencils to color this in. I cut off two corners with the wave die and used some striped pattern paper behind it.

Prismacolor Pencils: Purple Flowers – Violet 932, Lilac 956, White 938; Flower Centers – Sunburst Yellow 917, Beige Sienna 1080; Leaves – Peacock Blue 1027, Light Aqua 992, Light Green 920; Fans – White 938, Deco Peach 1013, Electric Blue 1040, Background – Sand 940


Card #5: Leaves Embossed Birthday Card

With embossing folders you can create some very fast cards. All I did on this card is emboss it, ink blend some Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink onto the panel, and add a die cut sentiment. However, I decided to add another step–I used a very sharp Prismacolor pencil to color in some of the leaves around my sentiment. I also added some translucent enamel dots and Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen over my sentiment, so maybe it wasn’t that fast after all–Lol!

Prismacolor Pencil: Leaves: Apple Green 912
