Good morning and happy Friday-before-a-three-day weekend! That’s right – Monday is a holiday! Yeah! Hopefully YOU have it off and can do something fun with family and friends!
Yesterday I pulled a stamp set off my shelf that you may have missed in the Jan – Apr 2023 Mini Catalog. It’s called Spring Blessings and it is VERY sweet! And it gets even sweeter on a cool Corner Tuck Fun Fold card anchored by the wunnermus Country Gingham 6″ x 6″ DSP. Take a look-see:
The sweet color palette is from the The Paper Players challenge this week.
I started with a 4 1/4″ x 8″ piece of Balmy Blue cardstock that I scored and folded at 2 1/2″ on the long side to make the main card base.
I matted two pieces of Petal Pink Country Gingham DSP on Crumb Cake – one small panel for the side panel on the front – and a larger panel for the back panel on the inside of the card.
I cut a piece of Basic White cardstock and decorated it as follows:
– Stamped the right-facing girl from Spring Blessings in Crumb Cake.
– Colored her dress with the Light Stampin’ Blend.
– Stamped the little flowers on her dress in Crumb Cake.
– Colored her hair with the Light So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.
– Colored her head band with a Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blend.
– Colored her face, hands, arms and feet with the Medium Light Stampin Blend.
– Stamped the lantern image and the birds image twice at the top in Crumb Cake.
– Used small Blending Brushes to add light Balmy Blue in the top portion of the panel and Crumb Cake in the bottom portion.
– Stamped grass in Crumb Cake.
– Colored the lanterns with So Saffron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends.
– Colored the birds with the Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends.
On another piece of Basic White, I stamped the Sweet Blessings flower basket and another lantern in Crumb Cake ink. I colored the basket with the Light Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blend and the lantern with the So Saffron and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends. Then I fussy cut them both using Paper Snips.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Crumb Cake mat and then to a 3″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Balmy Blue cardstock.
I cut a 2″ x 2″ piece of Balmy Blue Country GIngham 6″ x 6″ DSP and used my Paper Trimmer to cut it into a triangle.
I adhered the triangle in the corner of the card front using Tear & Tape Adhesive. Notel: this little piece will get a lot of “action” – so Tear & Tape is a good choice! Only put the adhesive on the sides – not on the diagonal edge.
I used Liquid Glue on the top – smaller – panel of the main card base and set the art panel in place – ensuring it would tuck into the DSP corner I’d just created.
I adhered my fussy cut basket and lantern with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped a Spring Blessings sentiment in Crumb Cake on a piece of Basic White cardstock and cut it out with the smallest narrow Stitched Rectangle die. I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finally, I used teensy dabs of Liquid Glue to adhere the Loose Daisy Embellishments and the card front was done!
For the inside, I used the fourth-from-largest Stitched Rectangle die to cut out a Basic White panel. I stamped the sentiment and images in Crumb Cake – sponged the top and bottom with Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake, and colored it all with Stampin’ Blends.
I slipped the die cut into the corner pocket and adhered it with Liquid Glue – ensuring it is hidden when the card front is closed – and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got some Blending and the Crumb Cake images from Spring Blessings on the front…
…and more of the Country Gingham DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! How sweet are the images and sentiments (I really love the fonts!) in the Spring Blessings set? It’s what I’d call a “scene” set – letting you combine images to create lovely scenes to your heart’s content! I think it pairs beautifully with the Country Gingham DSP! And – this Corner Tuck Fun Fold – which I saw for the first time on a Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial from Dee Slater! – creates a super cool blank slate for you to decorate!
