It’s time for the April 2019 ICS Blog Hop! This month’s theme is It’s a Spring Thing!!! For my project I made a thank you card (we need these all year round) using the Floral Statements stamp set, and I watercolored it in Spring time colors.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great Spring projects from this talented group of stampers!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Daffodil Delight card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Floral Statements stamp set:

  • THANKS image in Stazon jet black ink onto a piece of Shimmery White CS

Die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits:

  • stamped image
  • Basic Black CS layer
  • Pear Pizzazz CS layer

Colored using an Aqua Painter:

  • flowers in Daffodil Delight ink
  • leaves and stems in Pear Pizzazz Ink
  • NOTE: I use a Clear Acrylic Block as my pallette. I either daub on some ink from an ink pad, or put on a drop or two from an ink refill. When I’m done, the ink rinses right off with cold water.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • die cut Pear Pizzazz CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • die cut Basic Black CS layer glued onto the Pear Pizzazz layer
  • stamped and watercolored layer glued onto the Basic Black layer 
  • 3 sequins glued onto the top layer
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
