Spellbinders March 2021 Clear Stamp of the Month | Wonderful Spring

Hello, crafty friends!
Happy March and welcome to my blog! I have a set of Easter-themed cards to share today featuring the Spellbinders Clear Stamp Set of the Month - Wonderful Spring. If you haven't heard about the Clear Stamp of the Month Club by Spellbinders, you can go over to the Spellbinders blog and read more about it HERE

The Spellbinders Clear Stamp for March includes 11 different stamps, three of which have bunny images, and a number of coordinating sentiments. The stamp set coordinates with the Spellbinders Small Die of the Month, so you can mix and match your supplies to create different projects. This “Wonderful Spring” stamp set features made in the USA stamps from high-quality photo-polymer for clear, crisp impressions. 
Here are my cards using this stamp set:

To create my first card, I started by stamping one of the bunny images from the Wonderful Spring stamp set onto Snowdrift Cardstock using Versamark Embossing ink. I heat embossed the image using Super Fine White Embossing Powder and fussy cut it out using a pair of scissors. I added a bit of soft colour to the image using my Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers.

To create the watercolour background, I used a piece of Canson Montval Watercolor Paper which I loosely painted using Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters Distress inks. I added a bit of colour from the ink pads on a watercolor palette and used a wet paint brush to pick up that pigment for coloring the background.

Once dry, I die cut a bunch of small flowers, leaves, and foliage from the Simply Perfect Layered Blooms Etched Dies from Watercolor Paper. I coloured the pieces using Mermaid Markers by Jane Davenport and adhered them to my card panel using Craft Glue.  I then attached the bunny and a few of the coloured flower pieces to my panel using foam squares for dimension.

I die cut a tag from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Set and stamped a sentiment from the Wonderful Spring stamp set on it using Black Licorice ink. I added a little watercolored flower next to the sentiment and then popped it to my panel using foam squares.

As a finishing touch, I added some black paint splatters to the card background. Then I added the entire thing to a top-folding A2-sized white card base with foam squares.

Card Two
I started by stamping the floral spray from the Wonderful Spring stamp set onto Snowdrift Cardstock with Black Licorice ink. I used my MISTI Stamping Tool to stamp the floral sprays on the card front in order to line them up perfectly. I coloured the images using Nuvo Alcohol Markers and then die cut a circle from the centre of the panel using the Standard Circles LG Etched Dies. Then, I blended Shabby Shutters Distress ink around the sides with a blending brush just to define the edges.

I stamped one of the bunnies from the stamp set onto Snowdrift Cardstock with Black Licorice ink, coloured it using my Zig Brush Markers, and then fussy cut it. On another piece of Snowdrift Cardstock, I ink blended Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress inks over the panel using a blender brush, concentrating the lighter shades towards the bottom.

I wanted to create a little scene on my card front featuring the bunny and the floral sprays, so I stenciled some clouds on this panel using the Cloud Builder Stencil and Broken China Distress ink. I attached this panel to a top-folding A2-sized white card base with tape runner. I added the bunny in the centre of the panel and adhered the die-cut panel to the card base using foam squares. I also added two flowers in the hands of the bunny just for a fun, little touch. 

I stamped a sentiment from the Wonderful Spring stamp set on to a strip of Snowdrift Cardstock with Black Licorice ink. I then attached it to the panel using foam squares. As a finishing touch I added a couple of Clear Sparkling Sequins to the panel using Craft Glue.

The Wonderful Spring Set is available exclusively at Spellbinders Paper Arts during March 2021. You can get the Clear Stamp Set of the Month at the special Club Kit price, along with other membership perks.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my cards today! I would love to hear what you think of them.
