The Magic of Nature (by Carole)

Hello everyone, Carole is back with her final post of the month, a beautiful Spring themed card. 

Carole writes:

Hello again, another project for February, it is a little busier than my previous projects.
As Spring is in the air, or so they say, (it's got to come some time), I have used the pretty Spring Awakening stamp. She is one of the Four Seasons stamps, all of which I like.

Products used:

Spring Awakening stamp
Distress inkpads: Squeezed Lemonade, Dusty Concord
Versafine Smokey Gray, black permanent inkpad
Clear embossing powder, parchment paper
The words are made up from a section of one of the sayings from Let's Get Festive and Essence of Nature.

It is useful to be able to use parts of sayings from different sets. It makes them go further. Like the Autumn card I made for a previous Guest Design Team post, the hair can be inked separately to make a good background. This I did with Versafine, onto a background made with Squeezed Lemonade and Dusty Concord Distress inkpads. The Lady is stamped and embossed, then coloured with the same colours as the background. I stamped the primrose clump three times and cut around them to make an added feature.
I wanted to pick up a little of the violet colour so have mounted the background onto a violet coloured card and then the white card base.
The words are stamped with a permanent inkpad onto the parchment and when this had dried thoroughly, I tore around the relevant words.

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to my next session later in the year.
Bye for now and happy crafting,



  1. Beautiful that soft yellowcolour. Beautiful card.

  2. This is very soft and pretty Carole and I love the stamp used as an all over pattern in the background, a great idea, and also the beautiful flowers you have cut out and added to the focal image. x
