Final Spring Card featuring the Jingle Creative Basics papers

Good Morning~ I thought I would share one more fun card featuring the Jingle Creative Basics holiday papers with the THANK YOU sentiments stamp set and the DELIGHTFUL THINGS stamp set. The colors I used include Hollyhock and Juniper.

To create the Hollyhock circle in the background of the stamped flower image, I flipped the flower acrylic stamp over and placed it on the block, backside out. I then inked up the backside in Hollyhock ink, stamped it on a piece of scratch paper to remove half of the ink, then stamped the lighter ink onto my cardstock. Following that, I inked the flower up in hollyhock and stamped it right into the center of the circle-

TWO-STEP stamping can be done with ANY of our My Acrylic stamp sets simply by flipping the stamp over when placing it on the block. Get your stamp sets out and play play play!

Flurries Dimensional Elements and Pearl Paint - I Love Chipboard!

Today's card was so fun to make. It features the Flurries Dimensional Elements, Pearl Paint, Prisma Glitter and Close To My Hearts Card Chatter-Christmas set.

To create this card, I started by mixing Petal Re-Inker with our Pearl Paint. I only added a couple of drops of re-inker to the paint to create a very subtle color of paint. I then painted the chipboard with a thin coat, and sprinkled Prisma glitter on. Once it dried, I added it to the front of my card with liquid glass. It is such a pretty card that really was quite quick. Enjoy~ Tina
