Hello everyone, it´s Sanna here again today with another guest design team project share. For a couple of days we´ve had beautiful sunshiny weather here in Austria and I am very much in spring mood already. Thus, a set of easy-to-do, candy coloured cards is my project share for today.
The first card is very simple to do, but due to the used dies, still creates a lovely layered and detailed look.
Here are the steps for this card:
Step 1: Take a piece of each (yellow, light blue, grey, pink and light green) Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut one piece of the Junk Journal Extras dies in each colour.
Step 2: Now take the smaller flower dies from the Tropical Florals die set and die cut the flower with pink, yellow and grey Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step 3: Next adhere the die cut pieces onto a white card base overlappingly and arrange the flower to the upper left corner for decoration.
Step 4: Finally, take a piece of kraft carstock and heat emboss a sentiment with white embossing powder using one of the sentiment in the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 set. For additional decor, add a few craft drops next to the sentiment.
For the second card, you will additionally need a few stamp inks to create the background, but other than that, we are sticking to the same Tropical Flowers die set and the candy coloured cardstock selection.
Here are the steps to this card:
Step 1: Die cut a strip of paper with the Adventure Edges die and create a cloud background to a white card base with it by applying yellow and light pink ink using the die cut border as a stencil.
Step 2: After that apply some ink droplets with the light pink tone onto the background for a fun additional detail. Use a paint brush or a water tank brush for this purpose.
Step 3: Die cut two leaves and one flower with the Tropical Flowers die set from the same Soft Finish Cardstock tones used on the first card.
Step 4: Arrange the leaves and the flower onto the right lower corner of the card and adhere on place. Then add a stamped sentiment with black stamp ink and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set.
Step 5: For finishing touches add a few Craft Drops to the background.
Also if you are not into pastel tones, feel free to try out this set in primary colours or in more neutral tones. Changing the cardstock colours will give you a totally different look!
I hope you enjoyed today´s card ideas and got inspired to play yourself! Have a great time crafting and see you again next month!
