Tuesday Techniques & Tips - Blossoms in Bloom - Split Card Technique

So this technique is all the rage at the moment so I couldn't resist trying it out and adding my own (very little) twist...

But before I start... the Box of  Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit is now available to order... Makes 8 cards and envelopes and is specially designed to help you create a sunshine box: a yellow box full of goodies to brighten someone’s day! Includes stamp set and ink. Stamping block not included. 

Only available while supplies last... Click here for more details OR click here to just go and order ...  
And now back to today's main event!

Original brainchild and shared by Jennifer McGuire in early May 2020... as the Split Card Technique... though I have also seen others refer to it as Split Front Card technique.. or even an alternative One Sheet Wonder technique...

Basically the simple creation of one panel... and then trim that panel to produce panels for multiple cards... so creating more than one card at a time... 4 in this case... Quick & simple... 

My starting Whisper White card panel was 16 cm Square (6 1/4")...

Which I stamped the large image in the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set at the centre... using new In Color inks - Bumble Bee and Cinnamon Cider...
And then at each of the 4 corners...
Then I cut the large panel down to four 8cm squares (3 1/8")... 
Stamped the greetings in Cinnamon Cider... which meant that I did change the orientation of some of the panels so that they were most pleasing to my eye!

Mounted them onto 8.5cm square (3 3/8") Bumble Bee or Cinnamon Cider panels...
And onto my new favourite 9.9cm ( 3 15/16") card blank size (as 3 cards from a sheet of A4)
Think these have to be the quickest and simplest cards I have produced all year!

Saturday Simple Blossoms in Bloom in glorious In Colors...

 I like to include a card with my catalogues as I send them out...

But a thought crossed my mind... so I made a prototype... and thought ... hey why not! And what a great opportunity to play with all of the new In Colors too...

Clean, simple , fast... just perfect... for any occasion...

And then I had another idea... which made things even faster... for the last batch!! But come back on Tuesday for the tips and techniques for that...

Today's Thursday Tiles are full of...

Vintage vibes...  and reminding me of past denim days! And a technique that adds a mute softness to this image... 

Though would have been even better if I had thought to use the Tasteful Textile embossing folder after finishing my panel.... that would have been a real WOW!

Todays Tiles mosaic stamp inked up in Misty Moonlight, stamped off on scrap paper and then stamped onto my 10.1cm/4" square panel... Repeated for the other side...
Then Gray Granite overstamped... again twice..

Greeting stamped on 10.1cm/4" x 2.5cm/1" high Whisper White panel ... and added to cover the 3rd section* down... along with a bit of simple white Bakers Twine to finish... 

Adhered to a small square Seaside Spray card blank... 10.5cm or 4 1/8" square 

* brilliant way of covering an "oopsy"... Shhh.. don't tell everyone...
