Hi! I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in the US. Welcome to my blog. Today, I’m sharing a Welcome Spring stampscape card. I know you’re going to enjoy the techniques used and the video tutorial.
The card I’m sharing today is my design team card for this week’s The Spot Creative Challenge 155. Our theme this week is “Spring”.
You can create a card and play along by posting it to the challenge blog. And, you don’t even need to a blog to be able to participate.
Welcome Spring Stampscape Card
For my card, I combined three stamp sets – Springtime Joy, My Meadow and Under My Umbrella – to create this bright, cheery, Spring themed card.
I think the bunny and chicks from Springtime Joy are adorable. So, I’m finding ways to use them by thinking past Easter.
After using my Blending Brushes to add a blended ink background (it’s super easy!), I added the spring garden around the bunny.
The color combo that includes Melon Mambo and Highland Heather had me thinking tulips and phlox.
I love how the bunny’s umbrella turned out! I think I need one like it.
I couldn’t resist putting the chicks, or maybe they’re ducklings, in a puddle and making it look as if they’re jumping around.
We used to love to go out and play in the ran when my daughter was younger. Who am I kidding, you can still find us enjoying this simple pleasure.
And finally, before adding a very narrow matte layer in Granny Apple Green, I placed the stampscape layer in my Stamparatus and added the sentiment. I love that with the Stamparatus I can wait until my card is all but finished and add the sentiment directly to the focal layer with no fear of stamping crooked or incompletely. It’s a real gift!
Here’s another stampscape card.

Love your Springtime Joy creation. What do you use for masking the stamping?Where can you purchase this product?
Is it more sticky than post it’s?
Thank you for your help.
Sara Levin says
Hi Sue, as I mentioned in the video, I use text weight paper (aka copier paper) for my masking. As for the adhesive, I use a temporary adhesive called Dotto that Stampin’ Up! used to sell. I haven’t bought any in quite some time as I stocked up when it retired. Though, this adhesive is still being produced. I do like it better than sitcky notes as I can have adhesive wherever I want it and a roll lasts a long, long time. Typically, I can reuse a mask a few times before it is no longer sticky enough to stay in place.
