Springtime Special (Inkspirations 98)



Springtime colours are on the menu at Inkspirations this week. What a change from the many holiday cards I’ve been making, it has been fun to play with this combo.


This card is a 3″ x 6″ card and I’ve layered it with another roughed up layer of Rose Red. I really like the effect of these tone on tone layers.


The next layer is a piece of Just Add Cake designer paper. I stamped it with an image from Style Beautiful and then matched the layer on the other side with a piece of So Saffron cardstock (if you look very closely you’ll see it is stamped with an image from Established Elegance on the very end in So Saffron ink).



For the Whisper White layer, I first stamped an image from Style Beautiful in So Saffron ink. Over it I added a sentiment from Word Play and images from Nature Walk.


The little Holly Berry button is layered on a piece of Rose Red cardstock (punched with the Boho Blossom punch) and tied on with some Baker’s Twine. If you look closely, you’ll see some Dazzling Details on the butterfly and flowers.


Take a break from holiday cards and make a fun project with these light and lively colours. Check out what the rest of the Inkspirations design team has come up with too!

  1. Such a pretty card Carrie! Love the non-standard sizing, the subtle distressing & the layers of stamping. Thanks for reminding me to pull out the Nature Walk set, the way you have used it is so sweet. 🙂

  2. Love the size of your card and the fun button treatment you did! Fabulous take on the colours and great card as always 🙂

  3. Aah, a nice change in color pallet! What a nice stamp that set is, Nature Walk. Nice also to have the eye enjoy a 3×6 horizontal card!

  4. Fabulous creation Carrie! I love that tag you created and the button really pops. Such a gorgeous greeting as well. Love it!

Thanks for taking the time to comment, I very much appreciate it!
