Let’s Create Some Cards for National Craft Month!

Here we are at week two of National Craft Month and it’s time to get stuck into some serious cardmaking inspo! 

Springtime brings with it so many opportunities to craft an extra-special card for friends and family, whether you have a birthday coming up, fancy celebrating the dawn of a new season or want to get started on your Easter makes! And, not to mention that Mother’s Day is fast approaching for UK crafters, (don’t worry, you guys in the US have a little more time!)

So without further ado, let’s take a look at some cardmaking ideas that are all absolutely full of the joys of Spring. Get ready to Make March Magnificent! 

March Birthday Month Floral set

This is the time of year when nature’s brighter colours begin to creep back into the world, and nothing spreads Springtime cheer more than the joyful petals of a daffodil! 

The March Daffodil set is from the Birthday Month Floral Collection, which features a beautiful flower for every month of the year, so if you’re preparing to celebrate the upcoming birthday of a loved one this is just perfect! 

But, there’s no reason to limit ourselves to birthdays alone! With 16 stamps and dies, including sweet seasonal sentiments – this set is perfect for a whole range of Springtime makes and is sure to bring a sunny smile to anyone’s face!

And this would be the ideal opportunity to experiment with colour blending and shading to create the perfect golden daffodil, so grab your Spectrum Noir markers and get stuck in! 

Nitwit Bloom with Grace 

As the name suggests, the Bloom with Grace collection is bursting with florals – perfect for seasonal makes! 

This range is a collaboration between Crafter’s Companion and Canadian-based Nitwit Collections and it is just so sumptuous. From vintage tea roses to serene swans, everything in this collection is warm and elegant.

As well as richly patterned paper, stamps and dies – within this range you’ll find a treasure trove of die-cut letters, numbers, sentiments and embellishments, so personalising your card for Springtime birthdays, anniversaries and events couldn’t be easier! Why not browse this little gallery of inspiration and see what we mean?

Rotating Photopolymer Stamps 

Grab your Spectrum Noir inkpads in a rainbow of your favourite shades – it’s time to get colourful with this blooming lovely range of Rotating Photopolymer Stamps! 

With these stamps you can create gorgeous garlands of wildflowers and clouds of butterflies! Each stamp is designed to be stamped, re-inked and rotated by 90 degrees three times to create a stunningly layered floral wreath! Take a look at our handy guide to using rotating stamps for more information. 

The beauty of these stamps is that you can really make them your own, with a choice of sentiments to pop into the centre of your wreath they’re ideal for so many occasions! Choose from Rustic Botanicals, Meadow Wreath, Butterfly Roses and Butterfly Wishes, or collect the whole set and mix and match! 

And, they’re perfect to use with the Spectrum Noir Harmony Quick Dry Dye Inkpads, which are available in a kaleidoscope of shades, so you can experiment with colour to your heart’s content! Try a different colour for each rotation, or use a single palette throughout for a bright and bold effect – it’s all up to you!

Big Scene Create-a-Card Rustic Roses

How gorgeous is this card? Filled with timeless roses from top to bottom it’s just perfect for special birthdays, Mother’s Day or just because! Simply pick the colour scheme for your precious petals and choose the perfect sentiment to match the occasion! 

Here’s Sara to show you how to create this stunning paper pieced look with the Big Scene Create-a-Card Rustic Roses set!
