One of my favorite sets from this release is the Spring Seeds one (by the way, my goal is to share projects ideas using nearly all new stamps if not all, so stay tuned!). Being fond of 4 Bar cards lately I have found images from this set to be perfect in size for the focal point of a 4 Bar card.

CARDS DETAILS

I used my mini MISTI stamp positioner and Simon’s Intense Black ink and stamped three of the four images from the Spring Seeds stamp set onto white paper. I knew I wanted to do Copic marker coloring, so I used Simon Says Stamp 120 LB paper and intense black ink as those are my go-to supplies for coloring with alcohol markers.

I picked just a handful of colors for my coloring (check out My Favorite Copic Marker Color Combos post to see color combinations I use most often), I’m listing all colors in my supply list below. After my coloring was done I cut each image out using a coordinating die in my Platinum 6″ die cutting and embossing machine.

I knew I wanted to foam mount these onto kraft paper (I find kraft to be especially suitable for Spring projects) but I also wanted to stamp some sort of a background.

I pulled a few of my 6×6 cling background stamps and white pigment ink and stamped a bunny background (sadly, that background stamp is discontinued) and also a diagonal stripe one.

I also wanted to stamp a gingham one, but I couldn’t find my stamp (funny enough I found it the minute I finished making my cards). I left my panels overnight – pigment ink takes a long time to dry and I didn’t want to mess up my backgrounds.

After foam mounting kraft backgrounds onto white 4 Bar note cards I added natural twine and foam mounted my colored and die-cut pieces on top. I also used Nuvo drops in Green Apple and English Mustard to add several accents.
