Good morning! Today I have a quick and easy Spring themed card to share with you.
This card showcases Spring Baskets from Waltzingmouse Stamps – a wonderful set which not only covers Spring but also incorporates Easter and Mother’s Day.
Staz On Ink (if you are using watercolours)
Distress Markers
Distress Inks – Shabby Shutters & Tumbled Glass
Watercolour paper
Spring coloured papers & cardstock
Stamp a scene, using various stamps from the Spring Baskets set, onto watercolour paper with Staz-On ink. If you wish to colour with alcohol markers you should use Memento ink.
Once you are happy with your scene, colour it in and trim the panel to size.
Taking Shabby Shutters and Tumbled Glass, sponge the background to create a ‘sky’ and ‘grass’
Create a border around the edges, about .25″ from all sides.
Make the card base and cut all your papers/card to size.
Layer up the papers & card adding the scene panel with 3D foam tape or dots. Embellish as desired. I simply cut a pennant and 2 ‘washi’ strips from the patterned paper and added a button flossed with baker’s twine.
If you’re feeling more adventurous you can find the WMS Spring Baskets template HERE – perfect for using this stamp set with.  For more Waltzingmouse Stamps inspiration why not visit the Pinterest Board, or pop onto the Forum & Gallery.
