Welcome to our monthly blog hop. This month we are kicking off spring! Maybe if we create spring-like cards, the weather will follow?!
My Quick & Creative spring card comes from the Flying Home stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. It's available in wood mount or clear mount.
First, let's talk about colors. The card base is Soft Sky and the next layer is Tangerine Tango. BOTH of these colors are retiring. That means the cardstock, ink, ink refill, etc. are only available while supplies last. The Soft Sky ribbon on the card is also retiring. Click here to see all of the products Stampin' Up! is retiring. Order now so you don't miss out!!
Now, let's talk about the details of the card! Do you recognize the embossing folder I used on the Tangerine Tango layer? It's actually the BACK of the Basket Weave embossing folder from Sale-a-Bration!! If you didn't choose that as one of your free options, no worries! It will be available to purchase in the new 2018-2019 catalog that comes out in June.
I colored the birds, nest and branch with Watercolor Pencils and blended the color with a Blender Pen. Do you see how the biggest bird and the leaves are shiny?! I added some of the Fine-Tip glue to the surface after it was colored.
