Today’s card features some incredible Spring colors and a fun, Spring-themed kudos. My card features four new products in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, combining them for a sweet, simple card based on a fun layout. Here’s my card:
Here’s the banner for the challenge that inspired my card:
- Hey Chick! The sweet, pudgy chick on my card is from an Easter stamp set called Welcome Easter, available in the new Mini Catalog. I don’t usually fall for fat animals, but these guys have stolen my heart. They are PERFECT for Easter but just as perfect for a variety of cards. Here’s a look at the images and sentiments in this adorable cling stamp set:The sentiment is from one of my favorite stamp sets in Stampin’ Up!’s January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, Thanks for the Laughs. I love the variety of great sentiments in this set – “You’re the best!” came in perfectly for this sweet card. Here’s a look at the great sayings in this stamp set:
- Simple Layering. I just adore this little chick, and I had fun coloring him with my Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. There are no dies that coordinate with this set, so I used my Brother ScanNCut to crop him out. The lines are bold enough and the image is big enough that I could have just snipped him out with my paper snips, but I really wanted that white border around him. Here’s a closer look: The chick is mounted on THREE layers of this framed die from the Painted Labels Dies. The sliver of Pear Pizzazz is cropped with the die and glued to the panel that’s also cut from this Balmy Blue gingham paper from the Brights 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper which is glued to the same cutout of Balmy Blue cardstock to give it support. There are several dies int he Painted Labels Dies that are must-haves, and the bundle is pretty amazing, too. Here’s a look at the Painted Poppies Bundle that includes this set of dies (with a 10% discount when you buy both the stamp set and dies together):
- Spring Colors. This fun background of white and Daffodil Delight stripes was pulled from the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper – you know I love a good diagonal print. 🙂 Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:If you like this mix of Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Balmy Blue, please save this for future reference:
Stamp Sets: Welcome Easter, Thanks for the Laughs Papers: Best Dressed 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Subtles 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz, Thick Whisper White Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin’ Blends (Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie) Accessories: Painted Labels Dies, Classic Label Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals
