Spring Greeting cards with Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set

  •  Stampin' Up! Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set
  • Will your May Celebrating In Color Paper Pumpkin Kit include A $25 Golden Voucher?
  • Last Chance Products Up to 50% off
As I finished mailing my Easter cards, I realized I needed a few more than I had made, so I decided to quickly put together a few more using the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set and the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper from the Stampin' Up! January - June Mini Catalog.  I used the back and front side of one of the prints from the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and realized that the tulips in the Flowering Rain Boots was a great accent, even though this paper is part of a different suite.  One of the benefits of the Stampin' Up! product line is that many of the products in the line work well with each other, even if they are from totally different suites.  I stamped the tulip in Mango Melody and realized they weren't quite dark engh, so I used a sponge dauber and added Pumpkin Pie ink, and when the tulip heads were still not fully inked enough to my satisfaction, I used a Pale Papaya Blends to add just a bit more shading to the flower heads.  The stems are stamped in Evening Evergreen, as is the sentiment.  Then I added ribbon and Brushed Brass Butterflies to the image layer.  I love the vibrant, Spring colors of this card!!

To create today's card, I used a base card of Pale Papaya Cardstock.  Then a layer of Pumpkin Pie.  My image layer uses the Flowering Fields 12" X `12" Designer Series Paper.  I selected one print, and used both the front and the back side as the prints coordinated well. To hide the seam between my two prints, I used a piece of Pale Papaya and White Ribbon.

For my image layer, I used one of the stitched circles from the new Stylish Shapes Dies, which will be available when the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog launches 3 May 2022.  I used the largest circle in the set.  I stamped the stems of the tulips in Evening Evergreen from the Flowering Rain Boots Stamp Set.  Then I stamped the tulip heads in Mango Melody, stamped them again in Pumpkin Pie added to the tulip head stamps using a Sponge Dauber, and then I lightly shaded the edges of the tulips using a Light Pale Papaya Blends Marker.

To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen, and added several brass elements.  This was such a fast, simple card, that I cut several more so that I can have extra cards on hand to use this Spring.  The photo below shows the stamps and tools used to create these cards.
