Hello my friends! I created this card to take part in a challenge for our Kaleidoscope Stampers group. We were to create a card that uses something new, or something that inspires Spring. I decided on this card as I wanted to use the Many Medallions die set that I got when the annual catalogue came out last June. I hadn't used this set at all! I cased a picture from the catalogue to make this card. I wasn't sure which stamp sets were used so I used what I had.
I started with a Petal Pink card base. I used the large die from the Many Medallions die set to cut the background piece. I cut it from the Sahara Sand foil from the Love You Always Foil Sheets. I attached a piece of adhesive sheet to the back of the foil before cutting it out. Then when it was cut, it was super easy to stick down to my card base.
I cut stitched circle out of a piece of Basic White cardstock using the Stitched Shapes die set. I attached this to my card front using dimensionals.
I stamped the larger flower from the Pretty Perennials set onto some Basic White cardstock using Petal Pink ink. I stamped the flower center using Poppy Parade ink stamped off once. I then cut out the flowers using the corresponding dies from the bundle.
I stamped the leaves from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set using Just Jade ink. I then cut them out using the corresponding die and cut the leaves off of the stem to use them for this card. I attached the flowers to the stitched circle using dimensionals and then attached the leaves using Tombo multipurpose glue.
I stamped the Celebrate sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set using Just Jade ink on Just Jade cardstock. I cut it out using a die from the Painted Labels die set. I stamped the Welcome Spring sentiment onto a strip of Basic White cardstock using Poppy Parade ink. I cut a banner edge into the strip of cardstock. I attached the Just Jade sentiment to the card front using dimensionals on the right edge and adhesive to attach it to the stitched circle. I attached the second sentiment using adhesive.
I added some Opal Rounds to the card front to add some bling.
What I used for today's card:
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I am glad I finally used this die set. It is a really nice die and there are so many other ways of using it. I will definitely have to use it some more. Do you have a stamp set or dies that has not made it out of the packaging yet? Leave me a comment and let me know. (Hint: whoever leaves the most comments this month is going to win a prize for my anniversary month!)
Stay well and keep creating!
