Spring Fever SSINK April Blog Hop!

The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation team has Spring Fever!  Thanks for joining us today to see what says “Spring” to all of us!

Spring had me reaching for the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper, which is covered with gorgeous floral designs.  The best thing about it is the colors!  You’ve got the pinks & purples and then there’s the blues & greens.  Today I’ll be playing around with the blue/green papers.Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper

I made a Double Gate Fold Card, which shows off this paper beautifully!

I just love it!!  I added that small circle with the flower on the right & stuck it on using a Dimensional.  It’s meant to tuck the large circle underneath to secure it.

There’s a coordinating Stamp Set (of course!) called Blooms & Wishes.  I love how Stampin’ Up! has papers, stamps, and colors that all coordinate!!

Here’s another version I made that steps it up a bit:

Can you find the difference?  No wasted DSP here!  And look when it’s opened!

Here’s some basic directions for the Double Gate Fold Card:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2″ x 12″ piece of Designer Paper (easier if you use paper without “up & down”
  • Score at 2″, 4″, 8″, & 10
  • With a ruler make a mark up the 5 1/2″ side of the paper at 2 3/4″ on both sides
  • Cut from this mark to the second score line on both sides
  • Flip the cut off triangle over and adhere on the bottom of the card, allowing you to see both sides of the beautiful paper
  • Inside: Cut Card stock 5 ¼ X 3 ¾ & top with Whisper White 5 X 3 ½

The sentiment is from Better Together.  Don’t you just love the font?!  I CASED this card from Dawn Olchefske and couldn’t help but use the same colors, Melon Mombo & Daffodil Delight.

Wish you could see how shiny those Enamel Shapes!  Very bright & beautiful!
