I found it hard to just pick one thing from the Seasonal Expressions 1 Jan–Apr 2016 as there are so many fabulous range of products & ideas that you can still do so I picked two of the paper packs & two stamp sets.
Sweet Charlotte Range & Springtime Wishes stamp Set
This is a Centre Easel Card, the centre stands up like an easel to allow you to view the greeting. The part that holds the easel up is a word from theCharlotte Complements – Special Day.
I stamped the Ink Blot stamp & the Doodled Designs onto the card in Slate Exclusive Ink & added a few of the stamped leaves & stems from the Springtime Wishes on the base card. I then stamped the Springtime Wishes C1641 onto the Charlotte Paper & fussy cut them out. Arrange the flowers & leaves with the Charlotte Complements, the Treasured Puffies & a few Gold Sequins. I just love how it all tied together to create this card.
This is a Floating strip Z fold card. I used one of the pattern pieces from the Picture My Life paper from the Penelope Paper & added one of the Zip strips to the floating strip. The inside of the card is also decorated with the Penelope Paper. I stamped the Friend in Me C1640 flowers onto white cardstock & coloured in with the ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers. Each flower was fussy cut out & arranged ontot he card front & across the floating strip. Again I used the Doodled Designs (a very handy stamp image)to frame the saying & decorated with Silver sequins & added Red Enamel Gems to some of the flower centres. This card turned out so bright & cheerful.
I’d love for you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, the very talented: Doris Taylor – Creative Expressions who I am sure will showcase something amazing.
Enjoy the hop and thanks so much for taking the time to check out what I made using some of the products from the Seasonal Expressions 1.
