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!

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!

Spellbinders Cut & Emboss Folders | Kyoto & Lahaina

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have some fabulous new crafty products to show you!  Spellbinders has new embossing folders in their shop! I love creating cards using embossing folders; they provide so much fun texture and dimension. However, the folders I’m using today also cut as they emboss!

CutandEmbossFolders1200x1200

The first Cut & Emboss Folder I’m using is called Kyoto, named after a city in Japan. Don’t you love the beautiful fans it embosses onto the paper? To me the look is also reminiscent of the 1920’s Art Deco era with its clean, geometric shapes.

I chose a very pale pink piece of card stock to emboss. To accentuate the design, I blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink across the panel with a foam blender. The raised edges pick up the ink and really bring it to life. I matted my panel with a piece of  gold mirror card stock to show off the diamond-shaped cuts.

I embossed it again with another piece of pink paper and cut out one of the fans, so I could showcase it on the front of the card. I also added a little tassel with some baker’s twine.

Kyoto Folder 1200

On my second card project I used the folder called Lahaina named after a city in Hawaii. I love all the gorgeous leaves leaves on this folder!

To create my card I used a piece of bright green card stock. I blended on more Distress Oxide Inks to bring out the texture. The colors I used are Crushed Olive, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers. I used white card stock behind this panel, and I love how brightly the white shows through.

I didn’t create a video for my projects; however, below is a link to the video that Spellbinders produced showing all four of their new cut and emboss folders.

Thank you for visiting today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Below are the links to all the products I used to create these cards.
