Pretty Spring Card Featuring Beautiful Friendship by Stampin' Up!


We are starting a great new challenge for you at Sisterhood of Crafters! Darlene is our host and has chosen “Spring” for her theme. I had a little bit of trouble with this theme because it can be interpreted so widely. In the end, I chose the Beautiful Friendship stamp set that I had just received recently and paired it with the oh-so-rare “Happy Spring” sentiment from Fable Friends.

My Secrets to Making This Beautiful Friendship Project

  • This A6 card started with Soft Sea Foam – the perfect green for Spring! – as the card base. Then, I cut the Soft Sea Foam DSP from the Subtles 6×6 DSP, and dry embossed it with the new Parisian Flourish embossing folder. After that, I wanted to emphasize the beautiful embossing by lightly running the Delicata Silver ink. It was finally layered onto Basic Black cardstock.
  • The beautiful floral stamps in this set are wonderful! I played with all of them but eventually settled on the large flowers. I stamped it first with So Saffron ink then sponge daubered it with Calypso Coral ink.
  • The flower centers were stamped with black ink and the leaves were stamped with So Saffron. The small flowers were stamped the same way and fussy cut.
  • The sentiment was stamped with black ink.
  • Now, the short walk to my die cutting machine!  I cut the focal flower with an oval die and the sentiment was cut with one from the Ornate Frames dies.
  • The ribbons were wrapped and adhered to the background layer. The finishing touch was adding the sequins.
