A Splash Of Spring Colours



Hello friends and followers and all reading this post.  Today I have my DT post for papermilldirect using some fabulous Spring coloured cardstock, check out papermilldirect's range of card and paper they have a wonderful range of coloured cards as well as the staple whites and creams.

This week's special offer is an A4 small box (approximately 80 sheets) Baize Green 270 gsm for £5.50.  This is a beautiful green card, just right for those Spring crafts.


To make this Spring card I cut out an Impression Obsession Die 268-Y from white linen cardstock. An oblong strip the size of the die cut panel was masked and coloured with distress inks on a square of white linen card and the die cut attached over it.  The Visible Image sentiment was stamped and heat embossed.  

A card blank was made from papermilldirect white linen cardstock,  purple grape and raspberry pink cardstock were matted and layered onto the card blank before adding the white linen panel with the die cut and sentiment.

 

Another variation using cream linen, daffodil yellow and black cardstock.  The die cut was colourd with distress inks.
 

These two cards  are variations using the same die cut, used as a stencil on the scrapling card and the other coloured with distress inks and matted and layered on orange and white cardstock with a pale turquoise die cut sentiment.

Check out the papermilldirect blog for more Spring ideas from the design team and a faux leather tutorial from me.
