Spring Jar of Flowers Card

by Joanne James11. March 2021 14:51

Today I've another quick post to share a card using the glorious colours over at TGIF Challenges this week and the sketch at Fusion (rotated through 90 degrees):

    

I loved these bright colours and thought they would be perfect for a bunch of spring tulips - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Jar Of Flowers - My card uses the spring florals from 'Jar of Flowers' - but as per the title of my blog post, without the jar! I made a bunch of flowers and tied them with some paper and twine to cover the join between the florals and stems. I coloured the blooms with my Stampin' Blends, adding in another purple alcohol marker to give me the Gorgeous Grape colour, as we don't have Blends in this colour unfortunately.  I think these colours are so lovely together:

 

Purple Passion - Given that the Fusion inspo photo was all about green, you may well have thought I would use this for the base of my card today. Truth is, I love purple and I think Gorgeous Grape is one of my favourites, so I made it the main colour on my card today and used it for my card base, designer paper panel and the oval that backs my flowers. Too much? I think you can never have too much purple!

The Joys of Spring - I decided to use a sentiment from the new 'Springtime Joy' stamp set which compliments my florals perfectly. This set has some lovely sentiments for this time of year - here's another on the inside:

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

Enjoy your day and I'll be back later with this week's post for our new challenge over at TicTacToe. Until then, happy stampin'!

Oh my goodness, I love how you did this!  The colors were challenging to me, but you met them head-on! The little wrapper for your bouquet is perfect!  So clever!

Really beautiful design and card!  Love how that die cut breaks up the background and draws attention to those beautifully colored flowers.  Thanks for joining TGIF Challenges this week.

That is a beautiful spring time card! The vibrant colours just shout out with joy. We're moving into autumn now, with just the faintest of colour changes beginning in the trees. Lovely use of the sketch and the addition of that little lacy edge really adds something.

How clever to dispense with the jar and wrap your flowers in elegant kraft paper and twine instead! You've really used those colours to great effect. Vicky x
