Wild About Spring (and Ewe)!




Hello everyone,

It is my day to take over the blog at SumMore Fun and I pulled out one of my all time favorite stamp sets from Raisin Boat that is not just for Valentine's Day.  My card today is just so pretty in real life but very hard to photograph with even the best camera due to FOIL.... yes, foil!  I believe this card would work for spring, Easter, congratulations, thinking of you or even a new baby, but please let me know what you think in the comments.  So lets get started....


I started by taking  Neenah Solar White card stock cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and liberally applying some reactive spray all over, I used a shoe box to keep the mess down to a minimum as this spray goes everywhere.  I sprayed, drew lines and splattered the reactor liquid onto the card stock and then set it aside to set.  When it was tacky I ran the card stock each through my laminator with Mint colored foil.  I then took the Wild About Ewe, Honey stamp set and used the adorable Ewe stamp and stamped onto Neenah white card stock with MFT Black hybrid ink.  I used 2 shades of Copic markers in Neutral grays to color the body and 2 shades of skin tones to do the face.  When I was done coloring, I fussy cut the image out leaving a small white border.  This stamp is fairly easy to fussy cut and took hardly any time. I then took a small stitched circle from my stash and die cut that with white card stock and set that aside.  I then cut down a card base to 4" x 8" and then scored one side at 4" to make a top fold note card.  I cut out the Mint Foiled piece to 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and glued that onto the base.  I popped up the circle with some fun foam and placed that down towards the bottom right corner.  I then glued my "Ewe" onto the circle. I finished the card off by adding some mirrored confetti/sequins with glossy accents and dotting the Ewe's eyes with my black glaze roll pen.  I took a few photos in different lighting and from different angles to try to show off the foil and that cute Ewe. It was a pretty quick card and if you planned ahead and made a few foil backgrounds you could make a few at a time pretty easily.
