Hello everyone! Long time no see peeps! Thankfully it’s sneak peak week and I have some great stamps to make cards with. And, now that Valentine’s Day is over, I have all of that lovey stuff out of my system. Today the team is showcasing Hello Spring. But I think used all three of this month’s sets in some form or another on my card.
I absolutely love cards with a picket fence. In the middle of going through my carts, I remembered that I bought the wood fence that I used as an embellishment. I love the dimension that it gives the card. I don’t remember why I bought it, but I’m glad I did because I don’t have a cartridge with a cut that I like on it.
I cut an A2 card base out of Lemon Tart cardstock from Papertrey Ink. Next, I trimmed the patterned paper scrap to 4” x 5.25” and adhered it directed to the card. I’m fairly positive that the pattern is from the Die Cuts With a View Stack 7. Next, I used the “Stitched Egg Die” included with Hello Spring to cut eggs from Aqua Mist, White, and Summer Sunrise cardstock. On the Summer Sunrise egg, I used Tangerine Colorbox Chalk in and stamped the scrolled background. On a side note. I did this with my Fiskars Stamp Press. I find that using it when I stamp on die cuts makes it really easy. If you don’t have one, I highly recommend them.
Next, I stamped the Aqua Mist eggs. I stamped one with the “Chicken Wire” background with Pool Party ink from Stampin’ Up! I used the rick rack and dot pattern that Emma included to stamp the other Aqua Mist egg. I did the same with the white egg.
I used my Expression and Plantin Schoolbook to cut the grass. I used Co’ordinations Meadow cardstock and I think I cut it at 1.25”. I know it can’t be seen, but there is a layer of grass behind the fence as well one in front.
I trimmed a scrap piece of Summer Sunrise to .375” and I stamped my sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white Zing embossing powder from American Crafts. I used my scissors to make it into a banner and secured it to my card with hot glue. I then threaded two Aqua Mist buttons with green Martha Stewart bakers twine and adhered them to my card with Zots. To finish it up, I tied the twine into bows and trimmed them up.
