Introducing… Spring Botanicals Crocus

Introducing… Spring Botanicals Crocus

Welcome to Day 1 of the product introductions for our 11th Birthday Release. 

Hopefully you have hopped on over from HERE, the start of the Brand Ambassador inspirational blog hop. Today myself and the Brand Ambassadors are showcasing the newest addition to the Spring Botanicals Collection, Spring Botanicals Crocus. 

Let’s have a look at this flower in action…

I started with my usual clean & simple style. I stamped and coloured the crocus with Prismacolor Pencils and then fussy cut the image out. I started cutting the two wispy leaves first and then followed the flower round.

I’ve then adhered the flower to a white card base using foam adhesive. My sentiment choice is from another clear stamp set we are introducing later this week! I finished off with a few enamel dots from my stash.

For my second card today I went with a ‘quicker’ colouring option. I highlight ‘quicker’ as in reality it took me a while to mask & ink each of the horizontal stripes!

I’d used these colours on another card I am sharing later this week and I really liked them, hence why I chose to use them with the Background Blocks Horizontal Stripes. I used my MISTI stamping tool and plenty of masking paper to achieve the look.

I then stamped the crocus over the top in black ink. This time I opted for one of the sentiments from the set.

Lastly for today I put my ink blending to the test. I was going for a rainy spring morning sky with the sun just rising. I used Concord & 9th Dove, Midnight, Grapefruit, Buttercup and Sprout.

I then heat embossed the crocus in white before colouring with Copic Markers and again opting for a sentiment from the same set as my first card.

That’s all for my inspiration today using this clear stamp set. But be sure to hop along the Brand Ambassadors to see what they have come up with.

We will be back tomorrow with more to share. This clear stamp set, along with all we are introducing this week will be available on Saturday 4th March 9am GMT.
