Step 3 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangle and Layered Coffee Cup using Patterned Paper.This is the cover for the shaker. Adhere an acetate window to the inside using Clear Double Sided Tape.

Step 4 - Add Tutti Fruiti Sequins Mix and Happy Pumpkin Sprinkles on the background. Make sure it is centered when you place the cover on top. Before adding the cover apply some anti static powder to the inside edges. This will help prevent the sequins from sticking to the sides. Remove the release sheets and adhere to the background.

If you don't have a Xyron then add the sentiments from Step 8 first and then adhere the vellum placing collage medium where the sentiments are so you don't see the adhesive.

Forever Grateful Card With Spectrum Noir Tri-Blends And Harmony Inks

Hi Everyone,
I have a fun technique to use with your background stamps using Harmony Reactive Inks from Spectrum Noir. The fun part about this technique is you can use heavy weight cardstock as well as watercolour paper. The flowers are coloured using the new Tri-Blends by Spectrum Noir. I only used 3 markers to colour in my flowers and leaves. Each marker has 3 colours so it's like having 9 colours. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.


Step 1 - Trim White Cardstock to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)

Step 2 - Trim White Cardstock (or Watercolour Paper) to  5 1/2" x 4 1/2". Place in your stamp positioner tool. Stamp Rose Leaves Background with Harmony Reactive Inks (Grasshopper and Spring Meadow), spray with water and stamp. This will create a watercolour effect. Let dry.

Step 3 - Diecut Double Stitched Rectangles and Double Stitched Circles to the background create from Step 2. This will create window in your panel. Adhere the panel to Black Cardstock trimmed to 4 7/8" x 3 5/8" using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Adhere the entire panel to the front of the card using Foam Tape.


Step 4 - Stamp Spring Blossoms to White Cardstock using Gina K Amalgam Ink. This is an alcohol friendly ink. Colour the flowers and leaves using Tri-Blends. (I used Citrus Green Blend for the leaves, Dark Red Blend and Orange Blend for the flowers.) Diecut with matching dies. Adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Use a White Gelly Roll pen to the center of the flowers.

Step 5 - Diecut Basic Greetings using Black Cardstock. Adhere to card using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

Step 6 - Stamp Tiny Words sentiment using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool until it's melted and smooth. Trim the sentiment and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 7 - Optional - For added interest add Nuvo Jewel Drops (Key Lime) randomly. Let dry.
