spring card by Tusia Lech

Hello my friends,

Today I would like to show you a spring card, that I created couple days ago.  This year the winter in Poland was unusually warm, so the spring has come very early and flowers in my garden has started to bloom already :) They inspired me to create below color combo – violet and green. I love it!!


I have used 9th Wave as a background paper, Damask Mask from Soulmates collection and a star from Die-Cut Set (Cold Country collection). A cherry on the top is UmWowStudio flair with beautiful lavender.

 Here are some close-ups:

Layout tutorial from Louise Nelson

To create this simple and colourful layout, Louise has provided a quick and easy pictorial step out below.

Select your desired stencil, spray a portion of it with mist, and then stamp this image onto the background paper.


Take some stiff wire thread,  and form by hand several loops [that are larger than your chosen photo].


Adhere both the coiled wire thread and photo onto background using staples.

Select some fabulous 7 Dots Studio chipboard and colour it using a coordinated ink.


When chipboard is dry, add and touch of silver with some mist and allow to dry.



Adhere chipboard to photo/background using strong clear drying glue.



Add some sequins, clustering them around the photo and adhere using clear drying glue.




Shield the photo and add some extra pops and splats of colour, here I have sued the same mist as I used on stencil and the same silver mist used on the chipboard.

Complete layout with some hand journaling.

Hi. Today I want to share with you my new layout about winter. I wanted to create a winter sky with stars and magic patterns on it. When I look at this layout I remember my childhood and New Year holidays when me and my family ad a long evening walk and the snow was so shiny and the sky was absolutely stunning and I remember each sound and even how my cheeks, always pale, were so red because of frost and these winter evening walks were a real miracle for me.


Hope you enjoy it too!
