Spring flowers {Hobbykunst}

Hi, everyone! My second blog post for today, and it totally shows on my card that I’m longing for spring. Fall is definitely in the air, and I’m feeling colder and colder and colder. I don’t like it one bit! I do, however, like the florals in the Spring collection from P13. These are gorgeous patterned paper, and they’ve got such pretty imagery that I don’t want to cover too much of it up. The paper I used for this card is Spring #05.

For this card, I used the largest die in the Stitched Rectangles STAX 2 set from My Favorite Things. You can find set 1 here. The dies are a little bit smaller in set 1, but the shape’s the same. I have both sets, I just prefer the 1/16″ border I get by using the largest die in set 2.

I glued my die cut panel onto a cardbase made from Stamper’s Select White cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I die cut a circle from vellum using a circle die from the Stitched Circle STAX set, also from My Favorite Things. It matches nicely with the stitching around the edge of my floral panel.

I also die cut a bunch of numbers using a die set from Papirdesign. I made most of them from white card stock, but the top numbers from a piece of that same patterned paper. It might not look like patterned paper, but there’s a lot of white space on this sheet, and I used some of that for my numbers. It makes the whites match, which I really love. I put a 3 layers of my numbers underneath the vellum, and the remaining four layers on top. It makes the vellum stand out a bit from the background, which makes the number show up a little better and not get lost in that busy background.

I finished off the card by gluing on some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hi, everyone! I have a super simple card to share today, featuring patterned paper from a new (to me) company.

This beautiful floral piece is part of a 12×12″ patterned paper from P13, which is a Polish brand. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the quality. I find that most patterned papers are very thin, but this is right up there with Maja Design, which has long been a favorite of mine because of their colors and their quality. I didn’t want to do too much to this, so I used a slimline die from Pinkfresh Studio to diecut the panel.

I used a die from Papirdesign to diecut my word from several pieces of white cardstock that I stacked together. I added some Copic coloring with my RV95 to the top diecut, then put a sticker (also from Papirdesign) on some foam tape and added it below the word, before finishing off with a couple of enamel dots. Super simple, right?
