Thanks card by designer Patty Folchert

Well I think Spring has finally arrived here in central Ohio. So I decided to celebrate by creating a springtime inspired card using the brand new Saffron Yellow Pepper Soup papers and mixing them with the new Summer Red Raspberry Soup stamp set and new Hampton sentiment stamp set.

Thanks card by Patty Folchert

I really love how this one turned out, who knew that by using two different stamp sets and three ink colors it could result in such a striking combo? What is even more impressive is how well all four of these products go together, from three different collections.  The base was made with two papers from the Saffron Yellow Pepper collection and strips were cut and sewn onto card base as shown.

To create the layering cluster I started by stamping the sentiment seal onto plain kraft paper in white pigment ink and set aside to dry. Next I stamped the flowers in red ink onto white cardstock and fussy cut out. Then I stamped the lovely butterfly in a rich dark blue onto white cardstock and fussy cut out.  Next I punched out the seal using a scallop circle punch and turned up the edges slightly and attached to card with 3D foam dots. Then I began layering the flowers as shown, two of the small flowers with 3D foam dots. The butterfly was then added with wings folded up just a bit and attached in center with 3D foam dot. Last I added the flower centers for the small flowers white enamel dots, the larger ones got the new wood veneer flower centers after dipping them in the red ink pad.

A lovely bouquet for springtime sharing, and we always need another thank you card around my house.
