Taylored Expressions Rainboot Bouquet Thank You Card

 

Taylored Expressions Rainboot Bouquet Handmade Card

Hey guys! Happy Spring! It’s such a nice sunny day here in Florida…I’ve been so lucky to be able to share my home (and the sunshine) these last few weeks with some of my family from upstate New York. I’m glad they were able to enjoy the sand and sun before returning two days before a blizzard snowed them in at home.

Today’s card is a reminder that Spring is here! It was created with the Rainboot Bouquet stamp set and matching die from Taylored Expressions — a great stamp set for Spring and Summer!

I stamped the rainboot image in Memento Black Ink on Copic X-Press cardstock and cut it out with the matching die. Then I colored it in with Copic markers. I stamped the sentiment on a stitched oval which I cut out with My Favorite Things Die-Namics.

TIP: Use the Misti Precision Stamping tool for perfect placement of your stamped images. I recently purchased my Misti and I LOVE it! Besides perfect placement, you are able to re-stamp over an image when you don’t get a complete stamp the first time.

For the background of my card, I mounted some retired Stampin’ Up! designer paper onto a mat layer of black cardstock. I almost always use a 4″ x 5.25″ mat layer on my A2 cards — I like the 1/8″ border that size mat gives.

To finish off my card I added some iridescent sequins which I attach with Micro Glue Dots. The micro glue dots are the perfect size for attaching sequins and other tiny embellishments.

I’ve entered today’s card in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge — A “Bit O’Green”  The pretty tulips bring a bit o’green to remind everyone digging out from all of the recent snowfall, that Spring is here and warmer weather is just around the corner. 🙂

And the 30 Day Coloring Challenge — Even though I’m not able to color everyday the challenge encourages me to color whenever I can.

MFT Stamps Color Challenge & Jumping with Joy

Today, in honor of my first order from My Favorite Things, I am playing along with the My Favorite Things Color Challenge. While I did order some MFT cardstock — I didn’t order these specific colors.  So I pulled out what I had on hand and I think they match pretty closely.

I used my new MFT Die-namics Stitched Snow Drift and Stitched Rectangle dies to piece together the background. It made a great landscape for the sweet little girl. She is stamped and cut with the MFT Pure Innocence Jumping with Joy stamps and dies. This is my first go at coloring with Copic markers and I think I did a pretty decent job!
