Tonight I have four cards to share, all using the new Springtime Wishes set from the Doodle Garden collection. One stamp set, four different ways.
On my first card I used bright, cheery paper/colors.
On her dress, I added little pleat lines using different shades of blue/green Copics.
The sentiment was stamped using MFT’s Black Licorice ink with Razzle Berry ink “wiped” down the sides of the Fishtail Flag die-cut.
On the inside, I stamped a silhouette of the image using Sno Cone ink and added a second sentiment from the set.
On my second card I tried something a little different. Instead of stamping the tulips, I left that portion of the stamp uninked and added in two of the smaller eggs from Lisa’s Easter Elements Die-namics as balloons, drawing in the strings with a black marker. I placed a small piece of foam tape beneath the red balloon to add dimension and interest.
I colored the dress a little differently on this card. I left the bottom edges of each ruffle white, adding shadow with darker reds.
The birthday message was created using Airplane Greetings along with Fishtail Flags Layers and a bit of Hemp Cord.
On the inside, I added two more “egg” balloons and another sentiment from Airplane Greetings.
On this card, I decided to keep things a bit more simple using pretty MME papers and a cut out image.
After stamping and coloring onto X-Press It Blending Card, I cut out my image and added some sparkle using a clear Sakura glitter pen. The image is mounted flat to the paper with a small piece of foam tape beneath the largest tulip.
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from the set along with the tulip portion of the image.
On my last card, I did something I have a very hard time doing…leaving lots of white. :) I added a bit of foam tape beneath the bottom edges of the white panel to add dimension.
I colored the dress as I did on the birthday image but this time I left even more of the white to show.
The little tag was created using Notched Tag Die-namics. I cut two tags, one from Sweet Tooth cardstock, one from Tangy Orange. To finish the front of my card, I added two strands of Cantaloupe twine, tied over the tag.
On the inside, I adhered a strip of leftover patterned paper and stamped the image in Black Licorice ink.
All of the new products are now available in the MFT Boutique right HERE! :) Be sure to check out the MFT blog for direct links to more samples using this month’s stamp and Die-namics sets!
