A|S Spring Patterned Paper – Card #2

Today I have another card to showcase some of that beautiful patterned paper from the New A|S Spring Accessories Guide. For this particular card, I chose one of the more neutral colored papers and used it to cover my card front. I stamped my sentiment (from the Love Machines stamp set) onto a strip of sugar and used the tiny scalloped border to cut the edge. I glued that directly to my card base.

The yellow flower was cut with our Flowers 1 die set, the smallest and largest flower cut out of A|S felt. Cutting the flower from felt instead of more card stock adds a unique embellishment to the card with the softness and dimension. I tied some twine to an A|S button and glued that to the center of the flower before adhering it to the card base.

The finishing touch was to add a few of those pearl sequins to the card to add a little bit of sparkle.

I have one more card to share that showcases a fun way to use the patterned papers–you won’t want to miss this one! I’ll see you back here on Friday with the last card in this little series!

This card features the flowers 1 die set from A Muse|Studio. I started with a sky base card and applied a dry embossed dot background panel. I then cut the medium size flower out of pumpkin card stock. I pressed the die cut flower into my Versamark ink pad so the surface was nice and moist with ink… I then applied Simple Stick powder (also from A Muse|Studio) and melted the powder on the surface of my die cut flower using my heating tool. I then applied a nice, thick coating of orange glitter! I glued on a couple of leaves with my tape adhesive, added a threaded yellow button with a glue dot and attached the flower to the dot embossed panel using a foam square to pop it off the surface a bit. The sentiment is from the A|S stamp set Friend to Friend.  I stamped it on a strip of papaya pinstripe card stock using Memento tuxedo black ink.
