Hello and welcome to another Wednesday with Beth from Beth's Beauties! I don't know about you, but I definitely have spring fever! These cards use the exact same stamp sets that I used for last week's card, the Raisin Boat Cherry Blossom and No Loss For Words stamp sets. I was having so much fun with this layout, I created 4 cards with the same style.
Here is a close up of one of the cards. I will describe the process I followed to create these cards. First of all, I used a sharp scissors to snip apart the large stamp from the Raisin Boat Cherry Blossom set. I isolated the blossoms from the greenery so I could stamp the colors separately. I laid the stamps out where I wanted them on the cardstock panel and placed it in my stamp platform. I removed the flower stamps then only stamped the green areas with Olive ink. I did that 4 times for all the cards before removing the greenery stamps and adding the flowers to the stamp platform. For the flowers, I covered them with the lighter ink and stamped. Then I added the darker ink just around the edges of the flowers and re-stamped creating the two-tone effect.
At the bottom of the card, I stamped the sentiment from the No Loss For Words set in black ink. Then I wrapped Trendy Twine around the white area, also adding a bow. The final touch was a few enamel dots. I then added the stamped panel to a scalloped rectangle die cut in a coordinating color before adding it all to the card base.
