Wheelbarrow Spring Wreath Card: In Full Bloom Bundle | Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; I am back with you again today with another card using the In Full Bloom Stamp Bundle from Pajama Crafter Stamps. To create a spring wreath card featuring the floral filled wheelbarrow front and center. I shared this video last night on my YouTube Channel and I have it embedded in this blog post today.

Wheelbarrow Spring Wreath Card: In Full Bloom Bundle:

My card today features the In Full Bloom Bundle (from Pajama Crafter Stamps). I adapted this card design from the card I shared yesterday. If you missed that card you can check it out by clicking here. I also used my Stampwheel (from Altenew) to create the card front along with a little Distress Oxide Ink Blending.

Springtime Circle Wreath Card Front:

To create the springtime circle wreath on my card front I used the two small stamps from the In Full Bloom Stamp Set. I used the small flower and the butterfly image from this stamp set. I used my Stampwheel to crate the circle shape on the card front. I started out by stamping these images with the following Distress Oxide Inks; Lumberjack Plaid, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, and Rustic Wilderness.

I stamped the small flower first from the In Full Bloom Stamp Set and stamped it in one color and then cleaned the stamped and picked the next color in rainbow order and stamped it after turning the Stampwheel's top plate two notches to the right. I repeated this process until I had went completely around. Then I repeated the process with the little butterfly stamp; just moving the top plate where the stamped image would fall between the two previous stamped flowers. Once I had the circle wreath stamped I did a little ink blending in the four corners along the top and the bottom with Mustard Seed and added just a little Carved Pumpkin on the edges.

TriBlend Coloring:

Before I could color my focal image I needed to stamp the wheelbarrow and the watering can onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80 lbs Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I picked this ink because it is alcohol marker friendly and works well with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend Brush Markers. I used markers from both packs of the TriBlend Markers. They came out with the TriBlend 24 Brush Marker Set first and later they came out with the TriBlend Brush Marker Extended Pack to enhance your coloring process. Each pack of markers have different markers that stand alone and work together. The Extended pack helps to bridge some of the gaps between the blending combinations of the first set.

To color the wheelbarrow I used the following markers from both sets; Coral Blend, Gold Yellow Blend, Jade Green Blend, Ice Grey Blend, Color Extend, Jade Green Extend, Ice Grey Extend, and the Burnt Orange Blend. To color the watering can I used my Coral Blend and the Coral Extend markers. Once the coloring was completed I used the In Full Bloom Die Set to cut out my images.

Finish Touches:

To finish up the card I stamped the sentiment "Happiness is the First Sign of Spring" in Versafine Onyx Black Ink below where I planned to place the wheelbarrow. I added a little glitter to the flowers and the watering can with my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen. I then added a few of the Lemon Twist Rhinestones (from Pajama Crafter Stamps) to the center of some of the flowers. And then added just a little more bling around the sentiment with the Fairy Dust Rhinestones (from Pajama Crafter Stamps).

I attached the card front to my top folding A2 card base made from Fern Cardstock (from Spellbinders). On the inside of the card base I stamped the "Spring Has Sprung" sentiment and the small flower and butterfly. I stamped everything on the inside of the card in Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink a couple times to make sure that it would be dark enough after it dried to show up on the colored card base.

And there you have it my friends, this is how I created this fun spring time floral card using the In Full Bloom Stamps and Dies. I hope that you find a little creative inspiration from my card today. Until the next post stay crafty!
