Spring Love

Hi there,

I created this sweet Spring Card for the Karten-Kunst Blog:

  • cut out three hexagons using the die from the Karten-Kunst Small Frames set
  • stamp images from the Karten-Kunst Mini Frames Spring set onto the hexagons using Lawn Fawn Jet Black and color them with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers
  • cut out a panel from smooth white cardstock using one of the Karten-Kunst Stitched Rectangles A6 dies
  • stamp the sentiment from the Karten-Kunst Textrahmen Worte set with Distress Oxide Ink Bundled Sage and use one of the Karten-Kunst Mini Textrahmen Wimpel to cut out a sentiment strip around it
  • add a strip of patterned paper to the left and right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase
  • add some sequins filled with Nuvo Glitter Drops White Blizzard and fineliner dots as final embellishments

Thanks for stopping by.

One Background - Two Cards Part 1

Hi there,

I created this watercolor Easter Card for Anjas Basteltraum. Be sure to check in again next week to see another focal image on the second half of that egg background:

  • stamp some eggs from the Anjas Basteltraum Osternest set with Distress Ink Antique Linen onto a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper
  • color the eggs with Schmincke Horadam watercolors
  • cut the background in half
  • tear a strip of vellum
  • stamp the sentiment from the Anjas Basteltraum Kleine Oster Spr├╝che set with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Metallic Platinum Super Fine embossing powder
  • stamp the medium twig from the Anjas Basteltraum Osternest set with Distress Ink Antique Linen, cut it out and color it with Schmincke Horadam watercolors
  • use double-sided foam adhesive to adhere the twig
  • mount the background panel onto a grass cardstock cardbase

Have a wonderful Easter Time.
