2020 Spring Fling Blog Hop and Linky Party

Hello everyone! Welcome to the STAMPlorations Spring Fling Blog Hop and Linky Party! We’re kicking off this Spring season in a fun way.

For this blog hope today, I made this Spring themed mixed media card to share with you all.

I am a believer that we all are meant to bloom in wherever we are planted and strive through any circumstances. Life is a gift. Don’t give up, bloom my friends… bloom!

On my mixed media card, I used: Petals 2 – ARTplorations Stencil – Helen G. Designs , Brick Wall – ARTplorations Stencil – Helen G. DesignsLeaf Prints 3 – ARTplorations StencilInspirational #1 – Clear Stickers, Mixed Media Elements Stamp SetMixed Media GrungeCrazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies – CUTplorationsColor Confetti – ShakerBlends

I used heavyweight cardstock for the background because I did several layers with stencils and various mediums.

I used basic stencil by adding Distress Oxide ink pads on the stencil with blending brush, and also stamping with stencil technique.

When I was done building up the stenciled background, I added a thin layer of white gesso around the cardstock to mute some of the colors. And I added some Gelatos around the edges of the cardstock for some shading. After that I dried it with craft heater.

Next, I used second generation stamping and third generation stamping technique to add extra texture on the background with the stamps and VersaFine Clair ink pads.

I dries the whole panel one more time to make sure all dried well and then I cut it with the medium size stitch rectangle die. I added the background panel on a white card with permanent adhesive runner.

I added the sticker sentiment on a piece of white cardstock. After that, I trimmed it with paper trimmer. Then, I added the sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape.

I embellished the card with some of the circle sequins from the Confetti Shaker Blend pack using dries-clear permanent glue.

I hope this card brings some smiles on your face and give a spark of idea to create. For more Spring Fling inspirations, head over STAMPlorations Blog.
