Put Some Spring in Your Step

Posted by Alison Heikkila on

Hello! Alison here. Today I've got a card that features the Spring in Your Step stamp set from Sassy & Crafty. With it, I paired one of the emboss resist backgrounds I made during a FB Live. If you missed it and would like to check it out, you can view it HERE.

I love Converse sneakers, and the stamps from this set look very much like them. So, I decided to color this pair to look like one of mine. They're a stonewashed denim blue, and they're the super high tops. I love them. They also have cream rubber soles and laces instead of the typical white. I think they're fun. For the roses, I went with a bit of an unusual color combo that resembled a rose bush that I had when I was younger. It was called Kaleidoscope, and it had shades of orange, pink, peach, and a touch of lavender in the flowers. That's what I was going for here. I used Copic markers to color them.

The background, which again you can see me make it on the FB Live, was done with the Denim Kaleidacolor inks with a sparkle embossing powder on the Flowing Swirl stencil. I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair ink in Twilight on ivory cardstock, and I mounted everything on to a matching ivory card base.

I love the various shades of blue on this card, the bit of sparkle, and the pop of the roses. Please be sure to visit Sassy & Crafty to see all of the fun stamps and stencils that are available. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
