I've already created a few cards with The Spring Fling Collection, you can check my previous posts HERE and HERE.
So I am here today with three cards for you. The first card features the new inks - Pixie Dust, It's a Boy, Melon Ice, Bellini, It's a Girl and Mint to be. And this card also features the brand new dies and stamp set - Circle Dies and Simply Stated Stamp Set.
I ran the Circle dies through the Big Shot Express Machine and colored them with the colors mentioned above. Next I die-cut the circle out of white card stock and colored the inside portion of the main card base with Mint to be Ink and adhered the rainbow as shown above.
Finally stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card stock from Simply Stated stamp set with Midnight ink. As my filler stamp I used a bird (stamped him twice with Midnight ink to achieve that grey color) from Wonderful Wreath - SOA Lovely Notes Collection. And that finishes my first card!
For my second card, I took a white card stock slightly smaller than the main card base and stamped the pretty flowers and leaves from Lovely Flowers - SOA Lovely Notes Collection in It's a Girl, Mint to be, Melon Ice and Sweet Sixteen.
Next I placed 'congrats' from Spot On Dies and ran it through the Big Shot Express Machine. I die-cut congrats twice and adhere all three together to form a chipboard like embellishment. Next I adhered it on to card stock, you can actually see the how the word just pops out of the card stock. Finally I adhered the sequins here and there to finish my card design.
Here is my third card and this card features New Inks - It's a Girl and Melon Ice, New Dies - Circle Dies and New stamp set - Simply Stated.
I die-cut the circles out of white card stock, cut it into half, water colored them with It's a Girl and Melon Ice inks and turned them into beautiful watermelons. Yes you can absolutely water color the images with Catherine Pooler Inks. I drew a few seeds with a black permanent marker.
I adhered all the melons randomly on an A2 top folding card. I stamped the sentiment from Simply Stated stamp set on a piece of Vellum card stock with Midnight Ink and adhered it onto the card base. Lastly I finished the card off with a few clear sequins.
I hope you like my cards and I hope you got inspired. :)
