Happy spring my friends!  Today I have TWO cards to share that are sure to brighten your mood.  These will be made using the awesome new Rubbernecker Color Fuse inks! Have you had a chance to try them yet? If not, they are running an amazing sale on their site this weekend, so head over there and snag some up!  I’m also featuring two of the new layering stamp sets that are so easy to line up and stamp to create quick and beautiful cards!My first card features the new “It’s Spring Time” set and Set #1 and #8 in the Color Fuse line.

The steps to create this are quite easy using the included layering guide:
  1. I use my MISTI and Neenah Solar White card stock for my stamping.  Using a stamp positioner is very helpful as you can re-stamp if needed.
  2. Stamp the first layer with Lemon ink from Set #1 and again with Sonata from Set #8 for the blue flower.
  3. Following the layering guide, stamp the second layer in Custard for the yellow flower and Sierra for the blue flower.
  4. Stamp the third layer in Autumn for the yellow, and Serene for the blue.
  5. Stamp the flower centers in the darkest ink color for each flower.
  6. Cut a square shape for each flower.
  7. Cut black card stock ¼” larger and adhere to the flower layer.
  8. Die cut black card stock with the largest Nested Rectangle Die and white card stock from the second largest die.
  9. Stamp the sentiment in black ink.
  10. Adhere layers to a top-folding A2 5-½” x 4-¼” card base.
  11. Adhere the yellow flowers to the card base with liquid glue and pop up the blue flower with foam tape.

I love how the black layers really set off the flowers!Rubbernecker Blog IMG_6385

Now, onto my second card using the beautiful Summer Bloom set.Rubbernecker Blog IMG_6380

The steps for this card are quite similar to the previous card.
  1. Follow the Layering Guide to stamp the flower, stems and leaves.  Instead of using the darkest blue ink, I just stamped the final layer with Serene blue two times to deepen the color.
  2. I used the first three shades of green from Set #11 for the leaves.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in black ink.
  4. Die cut the panel and a piece of black striped paper with Nested Rectangle Small Stitched dies.
  5. Adhere the layers to a top-folding A2 card base.
