Spring Showers Cards with Lynn and Ashley

Hi there! It’s Lynn here and today I’m sharing a fun interactive card I created featuring the adorable new stamp set Spring Showers.

Sunny Studio Stamps: Spring Showers Sliding Window Dies Sunny Sentiments Spring Scenes Interactive Birthday Card by Lynn Put

The Spring Showers stamp set is such a fun set with all of the cute characters, kites and umbrellas, I knew I wanted to create something with kites flying up in the air and with the Sliding Window dies I gave it a go.

To create my card, I started out by stamping my images from the Spring Showers stamp set and coloring them using Copic markers then die cutting them out using the Spring Showers dies. I also stamped the sun from the Sunny Sentiment stamp set, colored that and die cut it using the Sunny Sentiment diesOnce all of my images were colored and die cut, I started on making my sliding window. To put together the Sliding Window card, I followed these easy directions which you can find here or you can watch a video tutorial here.

There are three pieces needed to create the Sliding Window card, a card base, a piece of card stock cut 4 7/8” x 3 1/4” and your top panel which is 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. For my top panel, I used a piece of white card stock and a piece of rainbow striped paper from the Spring Fling paper pack and die cut them together using the Sliding Window main rectangle die and the tab die. After that I used my paper trimmer along the top of the flap of the striped paper to cut the center portion out so the white card stock underneath would show through. On that center white card stock and the 4 7/8” x 3 1/4” piece of white card stock I blended on some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink

Next I cut thin strips of clear acetate and attached my kites, clouds and sun to the end of them, popping up the orange kite with foam tape. The ends of the clear acetate strips were then adhered to the bottom of the center ink blended piece on my top panel. After that I used the Sunny Sentiment grass die which I cut from green card stock for a grassy ground. I adhered the three children with foam tape and added some flowers and a butterfly. For kite string I used some black thread and attached just a sliver of a glue dot to the back of the children's hands and then onto the centers of the kites.

To finish my Sliding Window card, I blended on some Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink on the lower half of my card base and stamped some grass from the Spring Scenes stamp set and stamped my sentiment, then I adhered my 4 7/8” x 3 1/4” pull panel and adhered my top panel with the striped rainbow paper and my images.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi friends! It's Ashley with a cute rainy day scene featuring Spring Showers! As soon as I saw the cute umbrellas in this set, I knew I wanted to make a rain shaker card. It's a perfect match! I decided to change it up a bit though, and give the umbrellas to the chicks from Chickie Baby! I think the result is adorable!

I started by stamping the bench scene from Spring Scenes onto white cardstock with Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I colored it with Copics, then masked it off so I could ink blend the sky. I used a cloud stencil and Lawn Fawn Manatee ink to give some rainy day clouds. I created the rain shaker using skinny foam tape, fishing line, and clear iridescent beads. I have a more in depth tutorial from a previous card on my blog here

For my top piece, I die cut a cloud border and blended a bit more Manatee ink on the edges. I stamped my sentiment from Spring Showers on the middle of the cloud in VersaMark Onyx Black and embossed with clear. I used Copic markers on a white strip of cardstock to create the pavement and added both pieces to a skinny white frame.

I stamped the chicks from Chickie Baby and the umbrellas and clouds from Spring Showers in Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink and colored with Copics. I put one chick behind the strings of my rain shaker on the bench and added the other two to the pavement strip. I placed a few clouds at the top to finish the card.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
