Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! It has been snowy and wet here on the West Coast of Canada and I have already started counting down the days until Spring arrives. So for today’s project, I’ve created this fun and bright The Journey is the Start Card. To create my card, I’ve used stamps, inks and Paints from Ranger Ink ,  Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my card at home. To start, die cut a 4” Stitched Rectangle from Elizabeth Craft Designs out of Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Next, you’ll need the Honeycomb Small Dylusions Stencil from Ranger Ink. Place the stencil on the rectangle piece as desired and use a blending tool with foam and Tangerine Dream Dylusions Paint from Ranger Ink through the stencil. Move the stencil three more times and repeat the previous step. Place the stencil on the rectangle piece as desired and use a blending tool with foam and Cherry Pie Dylusions Paint from Ranger Ink through the stencil. Move the stencil three more times and repeat the previous step. Dry the rectangle piece with a heat tool. Spritz the paper with water. Spritz the rectangle with Cherry Pie, Squeezed Orange and Vanilla Custard Dylusions Spray from Ranger Ink over the rectangle piece. Roll a piece of paper towel over top of the rectangle piece to remove the excess ink. Dry the rectangle piece with a heat tool. Next, you’ll need the word stamp off of the Textures Stamp Set by Dina Wakley from Ranger Ink. Apply Emboss It Ink from Ranger Ink to the word stamp and stamp randomly on the rectangle piece. Reapply ink to the stamp as needed. You’ll need to stamp the words a total of five times. Sprinkle Boho Blends – Wrought Iron Embossing Powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies over the stamped words. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam from Ranger Ink. Die cut a 4 ½” Stitched Rectangle from Elizabeth Craft Designs out of a piece of black cardstock. Distress the edges of the rectangle. Off of the Everything’s Rosy Stamp Set by Dyan Reavley from Ranger Ink, you’ll need both stems and the small flower. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger Ink to the stems and small flower and stamp onto a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock from Ranger Ink. To colour the stems and flower, use the Lime, Tangerine and Fuchsia Scribble Sticks by Dina Wakley from Ranger Ink and a waterbrush. Dina Wakley Scribble Stick crayons for paper crafting in a variety of different colors.Once the stems and flower have dried, fussy cut them out. Ink the edges of the stems and flower using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam from Ranger Ink Off of the Doodle Bloom Stamp Set by Dyan Reavley from Ranger Ink, you’ll need to choose one of the flowers. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger Ink to the flower and stamp onto a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock from Ranger Ink. To colour the flower, use the Tangerine and Fuchsia Scribble Sticks by Dina Wakley from Ranger Ink and a waterbrush. Once the flower has dried, fussy cut it out. Ink the edges of the flower using Black Soot Distress Ink and a Blending Tool with Foam from Ranger Ink. On a piece of Mixed Media Cardstock from Ranger Ink, spritz water and then spritz Vanilla Custard Dylusions Spray from Ranger Ink to the paper. Roll a piece of paper towel over top of the cardstock piece to remove the excess ink. Dry the cardstock piece with a heat tool. Off of the Quintessential Quotes by Dyan Reavley from Ranger Ink, you’ll need the “Journey is the Start” sentiment. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger Ink to the sentiment and stamp onto the coloured piece of cardstock. Fussy cut the sentiment out in strips. Ink the edges of the strips using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam from Ranger Ink. Use E-Z Runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the 4” rectangle piece to the 4 ½” rectangle piece. Use 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the long stem ¾” from the right and all the way at the bottom of the 4” rectangle piece. Use adhesive and 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the large flower to the top of the long stem. Use 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the short stem 1 ½” from the right and all the way at the bottom of the 4” rectangle piece. Use adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the small flower to the top of the short stem. Use E-Z Runner from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere the “The Journey” sentiment to the left of the flowers on the 4” rectangle piece as desired. Use a white gel pen to do some doodling on the flowers and stems as well as outline the sentiment. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine that measures 5 ¾” x 9”, score at 4 ½”. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.
